So does Ross want Tannehill because of the information he is getting from Ireland and Philbin, or has he developed a crush on the guy because of what he sees on ESPN and NFL Network???
I hate stuff like this because it clouds the decision making process. Tannehill from all accounts seems like a solid 1st round prospect that will be selected a little high because of some teams need for a future franchise quarterback. Most experts agree that we're the best fit for Tannehill because of Sherman and the familiarity there, and also because Philbin is seen as a QB guru of sorts. At the end of the day I just want to know that Ireland and Philbin made this pick and not the owner. When owners force picks on coaches it never works out. I hope that we select Tannehill because Philbin and Sherman think they can turn him into a franchise quarterback. What I don't want is Ross making this pick and then ordering our staff to make it work when they're not sold on the kid. I guess I'm just going to have to trust that whoever we take, that player will be the best choice for the Dolphins franchise.
wkloiber, I agree with what you stated pretty much 100 percent. It no secret that I am not the biggest fan of Ross, but I don't think he is that stupid.
You have football people in the organization, let them do their job. If they decide Ryan Tannehill is the pick, I fine with it. If not, move on. As long as it from the football people, and I pretty sure it is, I'm fine with it.
