Dolphins Draft Day Debacles

Just to get you guys in the mood Twisted Evil

http://dailydolphin.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2016/04/19/e-trades-ranking-the-worst-deals-involving-draft-picks-in-dolphins-history/

I loved this one.

1. DE Dion Jordan (2013)

Merely selecting Jordan, who has given the Dolphins nothing and spent infinitely more time on the suspended list than the field, is a blunder in and of itself. But moving up from 12th to third overall to take Jordan is borderline criminal. The move cost the Dolphins the 12th and 42nd picks. True, Oakland did nothing with those selections, taking CB D.J. Hayden and OT Menelik Watson, but whom would you rather have: Jordan or DT Sheldon Richardson and RB Le’Veon Bell, both of whom were available with Miami’s original draft slots? If you’re wondering why the Dolphins never make the playoffs, moves like this explain it.

Richardson was selected 13th overall and Bell was taken with the #48 pick BTW. That doesn't even cover how even after the trade the Fins still could've taken Ziggy Ansah instead of Jordan but naturally couldn't even get that right.

Also, in the previous draft, they could've come away with both Luke Kuechly *and* Russell Wilson, which Birdmond has pointed out. Kuechly was taken one spot after Tannehill, and Wilson three picks after Vernon, who of course is no longer with us.

Jamar Fletcher instead of Reggie Wayne or Drew Brees.

Eddie Moore instead of Anquan Boldin.

Ronnie Brown instead of Aaron Rodgers, Shawne Merriman or Derrick Johnson.

Ted Ginn instead of Patrick Willis.

A team HAS TO BE doing something extraordinarily wrong to be this UNLUCKY in something that is essentially a 50/50 proposition.

At some point, the coin should land face up not always face down.

Right?

RIGHT???

ACTUALLY...the probability of a coin landing on heads is ALWAYS 50/50 every single time it's flipped. In other words, there's no "law of averages" at work in terms of coin flipping--every single time a coin is flipped it has the exact same 50/50 chance of landing on heads. So theoretically a coin could land on tails a thousand times in a row (or more) and the chances of landing on heads the next flip would still be 50/50.

I knew that logic class I took in college would pay off eventually Cool
