OK, I've thought about it. And I've decided to do it. I'll be the Dolphins general manager. I'll take the job so many others declined to consider and at least seven candidates — seven! — have interviewed for.

Seven is a number for dwarfs, for heavens, for deadly sins. But when you're interviewing seven candidates and still don't have a winner, it suggests you're sifting water through a pan and praying for a fleck of gold.

So let's have an eighth interview.

Me. ... The Dolphins also haven't won a playoff game in 13 seasons. You think I can do any worse? And what assures you any of these candidates who have never run a front office would be better?

Look up my draft-day decisions ... I took quarterback Drew Brees over the Dolphins' pick of cornerback Jamar Fletcher in 2001.

I took receiver Anquan Boldin over linebacker Eddie Moore in 2003, ... I also argued on radio with colleague Omar Kelly for safety Earl Thomas when the Dolphins had the 12th pick in 2010. ...Yeah, I was on board with Ryan Tannehill and Dion Jordan. We'll see. But give me Brees, Boldin and Thomas and even with so many other bonehead moves the Dolphins have made through the years I'd have enough playoff wins to be a front-office success.

But that's just the warm-up act for why I should be the GM ...

I wanted us to draft and groom a raw young quarterback named Kurt Warner back in the 90's. People laughed at me. He had a half way respectable career take off about the time Marino was ready to retire.

I think Hyde writes some very good Dolphins articles. Of course, I wouldn't want him as GM, but I get what he is saying.

And why is it taking so long to pick a GM? Why so many people? Make a list of the 4 best, interview them, and choose the most impressive based on body of work and interview quality. If he needs quality help, get The Don to help out, not King Karl Peterson.

Somehow I don't think Hyde was serious about becoming the next GM. He was probably trying to make a point or two, tongue in cheek.

Just read that Ross went to England & then goes to China so this GM thing might carry on a bit.

Can we reserve a few days after today in the next 2 weeks when there are no games for just positive posts about this team.

Ross is away , I would say that is a positive.
