This one image keeps popping up in my mind when I think about the day we drafted Tannehill.
They showed the Dolphins war room and Ireland had just picked Philbin's first Dolphins player in a draft.
Ross, Ireland and Philbin rose from the table and there were no congratulatory pats on the back. Not even one big smile could be found on any of their faces.
Philbin stood up and let out this huge deep breathe which gave me two impressions:
1) He knew he had his work cut out for him
2) Tannehill wasn't the guy he wanted to hook his wagon to
If Tannehill was his guy, Philbin would've been pretty excited.
Today, as we all call for both of their heads, that image of Philbin letting out that gasp of air haunts me.
Maybe, just maybe, Philbin doesn't like any of the QBs he is saddled with but needs another draft to get his guy.
Unfortunately for him, he may not get the opportunity.
