A ray of hope?

Finally. After more than 12 years and 5 head coaches, the dolphins finally got some sense knocked into them and drafted a QB in the first round. None of us know if Tannennhill is any good or if he will work out. But at least the team finally made an effort. Now whether Stephen Ross forced Irelands hand is anyones guess, but you have to believe there was some influence there in spite of both of them saying otherwise. And so it goes. Ireland's future will be linked to the young QBs success. Now the question is whether Ireland drafted the "immediate impact" player or if Tannennhill will sit on the bench the whole year. I hope he gets a chance to compete and grows with the new head coach.

Ryan Tannehill is the right choice

Picture taken from NFL.com
There it was, the moment we had been waiting for since free agency ended. With the 8th overall pick the Miami Dolphins selected the QB out of Texas A&M, Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill wasn't a big surprise to many but I think if another team not named the Dolphins had the #8 pick and they chose him it would have been a surprise. The reason for this is because I think Tannehill is perfect for the Dolphins. His head coach is our offensive coordinator, we have Philbin who developed Rodgers, Tannehill knows the offense because he ran it in college, and we also have the luxury to not be forced to start him day 1. Nobody else knows as much as Sherman does about Tannehill's potential and he was convinced he would be great and if Sherman thinks so, so will I. Get excited Dolphin fans, this should be a fun journey.

The season of false information and deception

Don't you just love this part of the offseason? Everyone has a mock draft out and speculation is running wild. Along with all this comes false information and a lot of smoke screens, causing teams to release any false information just to get a leg up in the game. Take for example what just happened with the whole thing about Ross wanting the Dolphins to draft Tannehill from PFT. It was originally reported on PFT but was then later denied by Armando, but then confirmed by Peter King and then denied by the owner himself Stephen Ross. No one knows for sure which is true besides the Dolphins themselves.


Now the Jaguar's director of player personnel Terry McDonough said that “people know Miami’s going to take [Tannehill], if a team wants a quarterback they're going to have to come in front of Miami." 


If you are a Tannehill, as strange as this is going to sound, this is actually a good thing for the Dolphins. The reason being that this shows that the Jaguars have not received any legitimate calls about trading up to the #7 spot because if they would have they wouldn't have said anything. They are trying to sell the 7th spot and so far there are no buyers. 


It's the draft season and usually most the information out there is not reliable and are mainly smoke screens for teams to gain the mental advantage.  Just make sure to take everything as a grain of salt and not look too much into it.
