Don't be surprised if they get 1 0r 2 players that contribute right away. Now with Ricky and Ronnie, a draft that produces 1 or 2 starters this year, along with DC making a comeback health and mental wise, hell we might make the playoffs.

All I want for an early Christmas gift is one nasty, light bulb eating, throw his mother under the bus for a win OL, preferably at LT. That allows the 1st round pick to be either a QB or trade bait for more picks.

I had always been a Fins fan because of Don Shula. Yes, he dates back to my childhood days. I'll never forget the comeback against the Chargers in the playoffs so many years ago.
Yes, so many years ago. What has happened in the past 10 years?
Is Cam Cameron the answer? I live in Indiana and have vivid memories of his failures here. Sure, that was so many years ago.
Best of luck!

Mueller: "I just wish we had a bunch more picks"

Sucks to be left cleaning up someone elses mess giving up draft picks for bum talent.

Ricky is done, history, the best playing years are behind him, Buh-Bye! Ricky couldn't hack it in the Canadian league, amonst injuries and the inability to run the ball. He even had a wider field to run on.

This is not as bad as it looks. Randy could trade down 2 or 3 times and still land this kid from Mich. St. (Slaton, QB) and get several 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, round picks as well. As far as Indiana goes, I don't care who the coach is. That school is not going to beat out Penn. St. Ohio St. and Michigan when it comes to recruiting. You can't hold that against Cam.

Ricky is not built for Canadian football.He needs 4 downs to pound the ball and wear-out defences.The CFL is more for scat backs with speed.When Ricky comes back I think he'll run well and be a good backup for Ronnie.

This is the exact same article I have read before free agency about the dolphins the last 6 years in a row. Is it not? We never have enough money to bring in one of the top free agents. We use to think it was because we were a good team.

We need to focus on the future. For too many years we have gambled our future on the present and you can see where that has gotten us! I say we need to build through the draft and spend wisely so that we actually have some cap space to be a contender in free agency for years to come.

AND ITS FUNNY HOW SABAN ALWAYS SAID YOU GET BETTER AND YOUNGER THRU THE DRAFT THEN TRADED AWAY PICK AFTER PICK FOR QUESTONABLE TALENT . THE MAN HAD NO INTEREST IN REBUILDING AND ONLY WANTED TO HAVE A GOOD WIN LOSS RECORD. ITS FUNNY HOW HE HAS ONE LOSING SEASON IN HIS WHOLE CARRER THEN RAN AWAY FROM IT .

BS MAN LOOK AT RUTGERS AND WHAT SCHIANO IS DOING THERE HE'S TAKING RECRUITS FROM MIAMI AND BRINGING THEM TO NEW JERSEY . IF YOU CAN RECRUIT IT DOESNT MATTER IF YOUR SCHOOL IS IN IRAQ. KIDS KNOW REAL FROM FAKE AND CAM BETTER BE REAL OR THESE PRO'S WILL TURN ON HIM QUICKLY . THEN AGAIN IM A GIANTS FAN AND WE ARE STUCK WITH COUGHLIN ID TAKE CAM OVER COUGHLIN ANYDAY OF THE WEEK

not enough draft picks eh? Why not try to trade some of the dead weight instead of just waiving it? Trade Harrington even if its for a 6th or 7th... trade culpepper for a 2nd, 3rd or 4th... Hell offer him to the Raiders!!! They need him worse than we do.

hey jimmy the idiot......the reason the dolphins haven't signed any marquee free agenst is idiots like JJ, WannSUCKS and Saban destroying our salary cap by signing overpriced and overaged free agenst in hopes of winning now. With only 10-15 million in cap room compared to 40 million that the 49ers have its hard to sign a marquee guy when other teams can grossly overpay them.

Chris Dielman, Eric Steinbach or Leonard Davis....the fins need to sign one of these quality offensive lineman available then draft Leon Hall, CB out of Mich. or Allen Branch, DT from Michigan.

Regardless all you idiot fin fans need to shut up and support your team and coaching staff for a change. Be thankful we are rid of the Napolean like dictator we had cause it finally seems like we are moving in the right direction.

PS.....PLEEEEEEEEEASE, WHATEVER YOU DO IN THE DRAFT PLEASE DO NOT TAKE BRADY QUINN. THAT WOULD BE A HUUUUUUGE MISTAKE!!!

I still think we allow cp to try his comeback. I believe ricky has more to give and provides a different look for defenses than ronnie and allows the luxury of a 2 back system. We need to land a protective/productive o-line and a qb for the future but not with the #9 pick. How is zabransky doing?
