Reading the full article, it makes it sound like Armando is using a rumor of offseason discord:
There is an internal disagreement within the Dolphins organization now in which one side believes the team is on the right track and very close to being good and the other side believes significant and meaningful changes need to be made because the team is not necessarily on the right track.
It doesn't say what they actually disagree on player position wise, but capitalizes on this quote from Grier which is pure draft smokescreen.
“You’ve been around me for a couple of years now,” Grier said. “We’ve said we’ll always take the best player on our board. I’ve talked from Day One, we’ve talked about the J.J. Watt thing. At [defensive] end we have [Cameron] Wake and whatever; but if J.J. Watt’s on the draft board and we’re picking, we’re not going to pass on J.J. Watt because at defensive end we feel good. So, all positions, I mean again, we’re evaluating everything. Every position, it doesn’t matter ... quarterback, tackle, defensive tackle, everything’s wide open for us.”
If this discord (first quote) is true, and I'm doubting the credibility of Armando here because this sounds like he's on a crusade, which side is which is going to be extremely important to the team. In theory, we are only a few players away from being a respectable playoff team if Tanehill comes back strong.
In reality, Philbin neutered or removed all veteran leadership. Couple that with a very young green coaching staff across the board with an influx of young talent, and you'll get nothing but trouble.
So if Gase is the one saying significant and meaningful changes need to happen, I'll take that as a good sign, that he's learning from his mistakes and wants to correct them. You have to hope he's recognized he's made mistakes and is not just blaming players.
Now if Tannebaum is the one saying it, I'm worried. Either he actually sees the problem or this is a powerplay. Part of me wonders if this is about Suh and switching to a 3-4 defense.
I'm also now worried about the philosophy of how we pick in the first rounds. They seem to like to take chances on guys with issues: motor problems, injuries, attitude problems, dreaming on guys (projecting on wow factors that don't translate to actual play.)
It scares me they wanted Eli Apple, Jaylen Smith, picked Tunsil (motor problems), Harris (dreaming on that wicked spin move.) I still have high hopes for Tunsil and Harris, because sometimes these guys work out, but mostly they don't. You want to draft sure things in the first and 2nd round, then take chances on guys on in the later rounds. I really hope they haven't fallen in love with Josh Allen, qb, Wyoming.
