I'll preface this by saying in no uncertain terms that I'm not an expert (or even a novice) on GM searches or pre-draft player analysis. What I am is a lifelong fan of the Miami Dolphins that is extremely disheartened by the overall national, local and fanbase sentiment that has been continually trashing everything this franchise does, before any substantive player acquisition or strategies have been laid out. 4 weeks ago we were on the verge of making the playoffs despite having practically ZERO help from a draft class that was supposed to contribute. We got our wish and Ireland was canned. We got our wish and Sherman was canned, even though some of the sentiment directed towards Philbin was warranted. We seemingly got an OC that is well respected in league circles, despite weeks of rampant media speculation that nobody wanted to coach this team under Philbin. How about we hold our collective breaths, stop the continual bashing and support this team TODAY as it stands rather than hope for a meltdown in 2014 to go through this cycle again? If early indications are correct, Hickey has a somewhat of a knack building OL's and a running game, two aspects that literally buried the Phins in 2013. We all know the draft is a crapshoot anyways. This team was several areas of improvement from being a decent contender. We have a QB entering his third year under new leadership that has proven that he can distribute the ball and be a leader, despite being hampered by a lack of quality WR's year one and no OL or running game year 2. We have an offensive core that with several tweaks can be playoff caliber. We have a D that is good enough to compete and that finally has the ability to make plays and create turnovers. Ross isn't going anywhere, so *****ing about him won't do us any good. Hickey hasn't proven or disproven anything, so wishing him malice or for the team to fail doesn't do anybody any good. The Super Bowl hasn't even been played yet and some of you are already hoping for the team to tank next year, which would impact far more than the GM or coach- It would probably spell the end of Tannehill, which means we would have to start over with another QB and wait another 3 years to see if he pans out. So instead of banging the media driven drums, settle down and let's see how this plays out. Instead of thrasing one vilian in Ireland and creating a new one in Aponte, let's see how this plays out. We have tons of cap space and a full array of draft picks in 2014. Last year we fell just short with basically no contributions from our draft and limited contribution outside of Grimes from our FA class. Can it really get much worse next year? My pledge is to not participate in any threads based on media inneundo, especially by reporters "leaking" information that have had an agenda against this team for a decade. I will not participate in any threads that have unnamed sources. I will not participate in any threads bashing the team or Ross based on an emotional response or years of warranted disappointment. After all, this is just a game that we love and will continue to love despite the collective hardships we have been a part of since the middle of #13's career through today.
