Poll - Brady to the Dolphins

Discussion in 'Miami Dolphins Forum' started by Galant, Mar 25, 2022.

The idea of Brady coming to the Dolphins is...

  1. ...fantastic. Maybe we can win a Superbowl.

    24.3%
  2. ...of no interest. I really don't care.

    29.7%
  3. ...disgusting. He's a life-long rival of this team and should never play for us.

    45.9%

    Let me say up front, I believe all the talk of Brady coming to the Dolphins to be nonsense.
    However, since it's come up, here's a theoretical question - how would you feel about it?

    Of course you take him if he wants to come here. Anyone who would choose tua over Brady needs their head examined

    I think there needs to be a 4th option. Something that combines loving the idea, but also hating myself for loving the idea.

    I voted the middle option but it didn't really capture how I feel. Brady for one year? Sure, let's make a run. But then what? Do we trade Tua, who we're supposed to be building an entire offense around? That's a catastrophic mistake.

    Now, if there's someone we love in the '23 draft at QB then okay- the Brady short-term deal makes sense. If the potential ownership stuff is true, that also gives Brady a transition from the field to the office. But my #1 concern is still a long-term franchise quarterback. The benefits of having Brady on the field or the front office would be huge though, we'd be able to recruit at a discount like mad. So I love everything about the idea...but I want to know who our starting QB is in '23 or '24 up front.

    Overall, I think I'd pass. There's too many variables we wouldn't be able to answer today. It would be very intriguing though.

    Where did these rumors come from lol first time hearing about it and i would say Tom is acting very odd this offseason. He literally got a whole bunch of players to re-sign for the Buccs just to leave them?

    Well, you did hear about the team wanting to meet with a star QB in Miami a couple years ago and our former coach saying no way, now how and leaving , right?

    And there was also a quote from Brady that same time frame saying, " you would rather have that QB over me?" Something to that affect.

    So, there is smoke on the situation, or there was.

    If Brady would play 2 years that would be very interesting. Possible 2 Super Bowls?? would it feel real, or rented? Would it matter?

    I think at this point and time I would pass. I'd rather hopefully win with a team put together by the Dolphins.

    After 2 years then what? We are back to trying to find a franchise QB

    Dolphins didn't even have a QB then.

    But I also don't think he specified that it was a QB so it could have been Flores.

    He’s still under contract with Tampa, no? What could they possibly give up to get him after the Hill trade? X and both first round picks next year?

    Brady is the archetypical Dolphins villain. Ranks up there with Jim Kelly. The idea of him as a villain is romantic in a way that shouldn't be tampered with, IMO. That's how I want to remember him.

    Two years ago? Tempting. Brady might have one good season left in him, and then a season where his body finally fails him. I'd rather ride with Tua and look for another QB in 2023 if need be.

    I'm a little surprised how many of you guys would be fine with this. It's just wrong, to my mind. If Brady were to be brought in I wouldn't watch the Dolphins until he left and maybe not until ownership changed. It just makes no sense, and maybe makes a mockery of what it means to support a team.

    Guys at work wouldn't let it go, and they'd have a point. "The Dolphins couldn't find success with the Brady lead Patriots dominating the division and now they only find success by bringing in the Brady who beat them?"

    It's selling out.

    Not to mention all the talk about cheating.

    What does it mean to follow any one team if all the pieces are completely interchangeable, without any sense of identity?

    It's meaningless.

    Brady wouldn't have thought they were picking Fitz over him as obviously he was a placeholder so it doesn't fit.

    Personally, I do not want Brady. I didn't want DeShaun, Aaron, Russell and many other highly prized free agent QB's either (except Peyton...but that's different!). However, it wasn't because Brady used to be a Pat...I just believe in developing your own QB and not breaking the bank because someone did great somewhere else. That doesn't mean it will translate to your offense and now you're in cap hell while missing several important pieces.

    Bring in an elite QB means "loading up" and it's not sustainable. Maybe it gets you a super bowl, maybe 2, but eventually the dominoes are going to fall. I'm highly against that philosophy. For example, we did that with Suh and the big man was great, but what did it ultimately get us? Maybe 1 extra win per year? We traded away a lot to make that happen and it just wasn't worth it.

    For Brady specifically, I do have some interest because it sounds like Ross wants him to become the successor to the team. Why- I have no idea, but it sounds like those conversations started at least a year ago. So if Brady's all-in on Miami long-term, that changes my thinking some, it's not a one and done situation. He can bring big-named players to Miami at a discount. Heck, he can convince people like Gronk to un-retire just by asking. Do you think anyone on our team has that kind of pull? Heck no. Nobody does in the league today- maybe a handful of players, coaches and GM's at most.

    So Brady could be huge for us- not in 2022, but in 2030 and beyond. Plus he's a solid QB. But my focus is having him in the front office almost like a Pat Riley for the Heat. It's a business move that makes a ton of sense, and it also kind of slaps the Pats in the mouth by him not wanting to do it there.

    I’d he was 3-4 years younger sure. Even with the improvements we’re not one player away from Super Bowl. Would Tua sit behind Brady and learn the new system for 2 years??

    I think if Tua busts the 2022 season (by being unreliable/injury prone or just not producing the way hes expected to with the weaponry and offensive line he has)

    and then add the Buccaneers fail to make the super bowl,

    if those two things happen, i see Brady signing here in the 2023 offseason on a 2-3 year deal. That buys us time to find a quarterback to groom behind him

    Assuming he hasn't declined yet this team with Brady would certainly be a legitimate contender

    Well that is why I don't think he is talking about Miami. He would have known Miami would be going to the draft and not "sticking" with anyone.

    Its probably Jimmy G because it was reported he wanted to go there and they decided he wasn't an upgrade. Oops.

    Atleast it’s a better idea then all the casuals calling for a Jimmy G to Miami trade.

    But Brady to Miami is not happening.

    I can't answer this poll because I'm so conflicted between the idea of a possible Super Bowl run with Brady and the possibility that Tua will turn the corner with McDaniel.

    So no vote for me.

    I could see it for his selfish reasons alone he’d rather retire in Miami then Tampa for sure. Play a year or two there and retire

    Slightly left of center
    I enjoyed seeing Marcia with his head in his hands towel over his head crying on the sidelines way too much. Making Marcia cry was the highlight of the seasons past for me. If Marcia is on our sideline wearing aqua making him cry would be a bad thing for the Dolphins. Please don't take that from me. Please.

    Mando is even less credible than Omar. Who do you think told him that? It's utterly ridiculous to think of why any "insider" would tell him the Phins are (a)willing to move on from a head coach after one season or (b)would discuss signing a QB before knowing which options will be available.

    I'd bet money he never had a discussion with anybody in position to know what the Dolphins plans are. Just like he announced that a trade for Watson was imminent last fall. He tries to gain a national profile with sensational stories that cannot be verified.

    He cited multiple sources. My guess it was owner Stephen Ross or some people in his circle. He also spoke to an assistant coach who told him Sean Payton coming to Miami was much closer to happening than people realized. Ross will turn 82 in May and is desperate to win a Super Bowl.

    He cited no sources. The only people that he said he talked to were people who talked to Payton after he stepped down about coaching in 2022. After that, it is purely speculation on Mando's part. Clearly a clickbait article that confirms my low opinion of him. Following is the basis for his "Brady and Payton could come to Miami next season" sensationalism:

    "So if the Dolphins under McDaniel don’t meet whatever expectations Ross may have and Payton shows interest in returning to the NFL, what’s to stop Ross from trying to hire him again in 2023?

    Yes, it would require draft choice compensation going to New Orleans because the Saints still hold rights to Payton’s services.

    But the Dolphins have two first round picks available to them next year.

    Meanwhile, Brady and his wife Gisele Bundchen are building a mansion in Miami because they want a place from which to make the jump from the United States to Brazil and Bundchen’s parents easier.

    And Brady is scheduled to become a fee agent next March after his current contract voids. That means he’ll be able to play wherever he wishes, assuming he wants to continue his career.

    Obviously if Tua Tagovailoa, surrounded by the loads of talent the Dolphins have acquired so far this offseason at a price of $267 million, plays up to his draft pedigree and expectations, then Ross’s desire to chase Brady will wane.

    But if Tagovailoa doesn’t perform with his new cast of teammates and the coach who promised to bring out the “greatness” in him, then the Dolphins could turn to Brady.

    In that regard, the 2022 season will decide the direction of what Ross does next offseason: Keep McDaniel and Tagovailoa or try (again) to unite Sean Payton and Tom Brady as his new coach and quarterback.
    "

    Pure opinion and speculation with literally nothing to back up a reasonable likelihood either is a Dolphin next season. Might as well say Nick Saban and Patrick Mahomes could wind up in Miami because nothing is truly out of the realm of possibility.
