My prediction for the dolphins for 2007 is:

-maybe we win 4 games this year.

-Ted Ginn returns punts and does not play receiver.....this year!

-Trent Green does not start the entire year and we see Beck get some playing time by week 10.

Keep drinking the kool-aid Jack. It seems to me that the clueless ones are you and Vicki. If you look at Mueller's past, he has done a great job in the personal department. Go pull for the Browns if you like Quinn so much. JT is a great defensive player in this league, but as far as I know Miami has no intentions of making him a coach when he retires.

I had high hopes for Muller and Cameron but after this draft I am a little worried!

Muller does not deserve a contract extension until Ginn pans out.

Are you all nuts? He gets an extension for just exactly what? He was complicit, at a minimum, in the nonsense of the past two years.
He was a decision maker, at a minimum, in the plan not to draft Brady Quinn. A plan, which even JT, and others on the Fins thought was stupid -- not to mention the myriad other football experts outside of Davie.
With absolutely nothing to show for his tenure up to now, why would you extend somebody when his results have been anywhere from mediocre to awful?
And you mutts pick on poor Vicki for voicing what people around the league have been saying since the draft?
That's really strong...
Good post! I'm for giving the guy a chance, but he has done NOTHING in MIAMI to garner the consideration of a contract extention WHAT SO EVER.

For crying out loud...give the guy a chance. If we don't win the Super Bowl this year, no problem, the fans will hire Dwight Stephenson's construction company to construct gallows on the 50 yard line and hang him along with Cam and Wayne!

I agree. Too many brady quin idiots out there.

This draft is a great success if 3 starters come out of it.

It would be fair to grade them 3 times (Game 1 starters, 8, & 16) since that will truly tell if the staff drafted AND developed the talent.

You do realize that his original contract runs out in less then a year. If they didn't extend it now, they could miss out on keeping him past this season. This move to extend him makes complete sense.

I see no reason to give Mueller a raise. The only thing of note he's done in his entire NFL carreer, is fleece Dave Wannstedt out of 2 first round picks for Ricky Williams. Other than that, his BEST drafts have been average at best, and he's had mostly mediocre to completely forgetable ones. There's nothing special about Randy Mueller...any one of us could do just as good a job as far as picking talent goes. Maybe he's good at negotiating contracts or something we don't see in the public eye, but his eye for talent is pretty dismal...he hits on a good player every now and then, and they're always the high picks when he does hit on one...the ones you EXPECT to get a good player from. I'm not impressed with him one bit...I think Spielman was better...and not by much either...

Like I've said before, ad nauseum: Wayne Huizenga is the single common denominator in all of this nonsense.

He hired Jimmy Johnson, Dave Wannstadt, Saban, Mueller and Cameron. He hired Cameron simply because his name appeared on media short-lists of prospective coaching candidates.
When everyone else above Cameron declined the job or found work elsewhere, he simply threw a bunch of money at the CamMan to quiet his critics.
Huizenga should have at the very least, subjected Cameron to an IQ test before he hired him.

Amazing to me sometimes how people tend to see different things. In looking through Mueller's extensive draft history the thing that always struck me about him was how he always managed to nail the early picks, and then never really found those true diamond in the rough types late in the draft. I was wondering if it was any coincidence then that it felt like each of his first five picks this year were all homeruns, and then each of his next five picks certainly had the feel of layups, to me...
He drafted Mark Bulger in the 6th round. A Pro Bowl QB in the 6th certainly qualifies as a diamond in the rough.

Look at his drafts in Seattle and New Orleans.He is 1 of the better GMs in football. He drafted Walter Jones,Ahman Green,Jake Delhomme,Mark Bulger,Charles Grant,Will Smith,Duece McAllister,etc.

Who said he is getting a raise? He probably is getting a little more, but this is about extending a contract that was about to run out.

Also, his drafts in the past have been pretty good and he has only had ONE draft with the Dolphins so far. Saban made all the choices in 2006.

The positives I see of Mueller so far is that he likes to stockpile picks and build through the draft. When was the last time a Dolphins draft had 10 picks?

He dumped all the underachieving veterans that have been holding us back in returning to greatness(McMichael, Mare, McIntosh, James, etc.)

Some bash him for passing on Quinn at #9, but the mighty Quinn didn't even get drafted by anybody until #22(By the Browns who had already PASSED on him earlier). He got a player(Ginn) that can open up not only the passing game, but the return game. Also, many consider Beck just a SLIGHT notch below Quinn and some even think he is on par with him.

Also, look at the fact that it is only June 26th and SIX of our 10 draft picks are already under contract. Also, there was a report last week that Satele and Mormino are just days away from inking their rookie contracts.

Mueller is doing a fantastic job, and I am thrilled they extended his contract so he can continue to re-build this team into a champion.

Come on.

Nick Saban had TOTAL CONTROL over personnel.

Mueller only provided information on the players.

[QUOTE who="why would you extend somebody when his results have been anywhere from mediocre to awful?
[/QUOTE]

How do you know what the results will be when none of the players he drafted this year have played a single down? He didn't have full control last year when Dicky Satan was coaching so you can't base anything on last year. Satan had COMPLETE control of the team. How many times did you get to see RM interview last year? None. Give the guy a chance. Remember, RM is an offensive GM that will do just fine with the fins. I'm glad he got his extension and he never took that job offer earlier in the year. It was a good lock. Go fins!
