Take a QB in the 1st round next year?

Said Dolphins LB Akin Ayodele of Thigpen, who finished with 320 yards passing, “I like him. He’s an athletic quarterback. Brodie Croyle is going to watch his back next year. There’s going to be a battle for the starting position.”


When the opposition starts to give your young QB props, you have to a moment to really consider if you need to look for his replacement. I'd really try to get Rich Gannon to come in this offseason as a consultant and work with Thigpen for a few weeks. I'd ask him to go over film and work with him on the field to work through the nuances of the game, particularly executing the boot which Thigpen hasn't mastered yet.

Thiggy's future with us is going to depend on who the offensive coordinator is. I doubt Gailey is back just because I think a new GM will want to hire his own coaches.

Thigpen's strengths might not be the strengths the new offensive coordinator looks for in a QB, and he may want more of a traditional guy and/or want to build from scratch with a new QB he can mold into a star.

I agree with you. I just question if it is the right move.

Brody Croyle needs to watch his back? If we go into camp next year with a battle at the QB position between Thigpen and Croyle.....I'll be pissed. Croyle has proven that he doesn't deserve a spot in the battle.

Agreed. The Dolphins guy doesn't know that Croyle is done in KC. His thoughts on Thigpen, the QB he actually played against, are very interesting though.

the QB class is not strong enough this year... I don't like stafford as much as a lot of other people do. Although, if we drafted bradford, you wouldn't hear me complain too much.

but I say OL/DL for the first pick

I think we should trade down and get a WR and OL in the middle of the first round. A QBOTF is useless without a solid supporting cast.

The real story of the nite was the offensive line. Albert was amazing. Even when he missed a block (Thigpen's TD run) he would recover and seal. Waters was driving guys 10 yards backwards with ease and...

How about Damien McInosh (i'm sorry for spelling it wrong) with 2 pancakes on the same play???? That was awesome, and very rare to see from that guy. He usually can't block to save his life

well some people on ESPN say Tebow is a 3rd rounder, maybe we can get WR Crabtree from Texas Tech and a lineman and pickup Tebow in the 3rd and run this goofy offense with Tebow and Thiggy,lol
im sold on Bradford,im sold on Crabtree at WR im also sold on Harrel from Texas Tech,spelling might be wrong also i think our franchise QB is just a small trade away in Colt Brennan, i prefer Quinn but Brennan can be had for a cheaper price maybe a way to let LJ go???

IF the New GM, HC and OC want to build a franchise around a 1st round QB, then so be it... I dont think they have to build it around Thigpen if they dont seem fit. I would like to see them allow them to battle it out in training camp. But if they want to scap this whole gimmic offense and install a pro style offense with a mix of the spread, then fine..

But to sit here and speculate when we dont even know whom the GM or staff is going to be is just silly... Its more of a pissing match between the 1st round QB fans and the Thigpen fans....

Which I am sure we will have plenty of pissing and moaning until the draft about Thigpen and his lack of anything that resembles accuracy...

I don't see much of a difference between Stafford, Bradford, Sanchez and Tebow. I say draft 1 of them at the top of the 2nd as I doubt all four will be picked by then.

I might draft a QB, but I wouldn't go there with my #1.

Nobody wants to waste a No. 2 pick in the 1st round on a WR, but we need to trade down and get a few mid first round players to fill gaps on the OL, DL, and get that third threat at WR
