Armando nails it once again

Post by scotgif on Sun Dec 27, 2015 2:58 am

Nothing new here, but it is painful to relive all these monumental bad moves. This is not the main reason we are in the shape we are in now, but, it is the latest of a long line of incompetent Front Office moves that has us in the position we are in now.

Thank you very much jeff fireland,

They entered that draft day with 11 total picks, including a first-round pick, two second-round picks, two third-round picks and a fourth-round pick. The team was scheduled to have five picks in the top 82 selections.

And with this bonanza it would be fair to expect the Dolphins to author a future bright enough to eventually unseat the New England Patriots as the AFC East’s dominant team.

The problem is the Dolphins didn’t just get things wrong that offseason, they got stuff wrong in proportions previously unseen in club history. They got things wrong to the point the team this 2016 offseason will still feel the pain of those terrible mistakes.

The only bigger draft day face palm fail I can recall in recent memory was when the Colts somehow finagled the first AND second overall picks of the '92 draft (seriously, this was a real thing) and came away with...Steve Emtman and Quentin Coryatt. Yeah. Those two combined for three career INTs and 16.5 sacks. Naturally, Emtman returned his for a game-winning TD against the Fins. Naturally. But hey, at least he became a Fin for two seasons later on, even if you'd never have known he was on the team even back then Laughing

And even after somehow, some way, blowing the FIRST TWO picks of a draft, the Colts were still in the playoffs three seasons later.

(Starts weeping.)

But back to the Fins, it's literally as if Ireland already knew he wouldn't be around after that season and was just phoning it in or even worse, deliberately drafting that horribly to screw the Fins on his way out. I had totally forgotten Will Davis was traded Surprised And how sad is it that Dansby and Burnett look like Hall Of Famers even today compared to the complete dross at LB now? Crying or Very sad

But what's really really REALLY bad, is that Ross 1. Actually seems to have taken Aponte's opinion of who to draft just as seriously as Ireland's and Philbin's Shocked and 2. His choice of Austin would've literally been almost as bad! At least Austin would've still been on the roster and not gotten busted for drugs. I think.

Philbin and Ireland agreed on Jordan. If those two are agreeing on something, doing the opposite would definitely seem the way to go.

Trading up and taking Jordan instead of Ansaih or just staying put and taking Sheldon Richardson in round one or Kawaan Short in round two. And those are just the undisputed successes; virtually any other D-lineman Ireland could have taken has at least been on the field, which is more than you can say for Jordan.
