Dolphins sign Ryan Fitzpatrick

Recommended Posts

I dont think tanking is a thing, but thats a controversial subject for another thread.  IMO this is purely a backup quarterback signing and the Phins are either trading for Rosen or trading up in the draft.

Josh Rosen is an enigma. Not sure how one would feel if a team is willing to give up on you after 1 year. Former coach calls you "entitled" in an indirect fashion, not sure what to think of him. 

 

If Kyler Murray is drafted 1st by the Cardinals, Rosen is getting traded for sure for a 2nd round pick at worst. Cardinals probably want a 1st, I'd ask them to beat it if they do. They invested a 1st and if they want to get rid of him, it is their problem. They can figure out how to keep him and pay him.

Makes you wonder what is going on in upper management for the Cardinals to be in this turmoil. I thinks Arians only retired to get the heck out of the situation there. His comeback to coach in the NFL shows that.

'Entitled' was the knock on Rosen coming out, so the Head Coach shouldn't have been surprised.

Maybe the GM was. 

Nothing like a good ol' QB over-reach in the draft.....when you don't need one.

17 QBs since Marino?! How many decades would the Colts or Packers have to back to equal that number? I thought the Texans were bad.

Both got extremely lucky.. I remember thinking good God the Packers got real lucky. But we basically got the same exact deal :yahoo:

 

Soo basically you're telling me the Dolphins will start out 3 or 4-0 and then lose the next 6 bench Fitz.. have him come back for a home match up against the Pats which they'll somehow win, then the following week throw 5 ints.

Fitzmagic, just enough to derail the 'tank for Tua' train?  ;-)

 

As for Rosen, if AZ can't get a decent (to them) deal, they can pay Josh his <5 million per year for the next 3 years while he holds the clipboard easily, along with Kyler Murray's pay; for less than many teams pay only their starter.

Well, in that time either Rosen acknowledges his place in the world, or proves his perceived place in the world, or wreaks havoc 'til he's gone.

I think New England would be a great place for Rosen to go.

Eh, he'd get more face time with Kraft if he went to Miami.           :)

Funny thing about "Fitzmagic" is Minkah fitzpatrick filed to trademark that term when Ryan Fitzpatrick started being called it.  Should make for an interesting locker room convo.

Good for Fitzy.  Guy has to be one of the most under-appreciated players in the history of the league.  Has an Ivy League education, and could probably take a desk job anywhere he wants in a front office (and likely will at some point IMHO), yet continues to grind it out on the field and play above expectations everywhere he goes, and yet continues to get moved.  Plus he has one of the best beards in the history of the NFL.  Good for him.

    • I'm on the record that I think it would be shortsighted to spend any premium asset for non-long-term QB while there is a question about our QB position. We might need those picks to trade up in the draft for a QB Ballard and Reich love. Until we are certain one way or another in our long-term QB position we should not be trading those picks for players. And even then we should still be prudent in how we spend our picks. Multiple round 1 and round 2 picks for strong safety/slot CB is not my idea of prudent use of our picks. 
    • I'll be attending, hoping to get there around 10
    • Chad Kelly by far.   He's one brush away from cleaning toilets in prison for the next few years of his life ala Ryan Leaf.
    • I have no doubt Elway is a better QB talent evaluator than people here...but vs. his peers? Osweiler, Siemian, Lynch...giving $25M gtd to Case Keenum...those moves collectively would seem to suggest his evaluation is not better than most...and maybe just bad (relatively speaking). Granted none of those are top 5 picks...but he did trade up in the 1st round to get Lynch and Osweiler was a 2nd round pick. I like Lock more than that anyone in that group...so we will see how that turns out.   As for Manning...there were several teams were interested...like nearly 1/3 of the league. At least 9 teams reached out to him (DEN, AZ, SEA, TEN, WAS, MIA, NYJ, PHI, SF)...and Manning narrowed it down and heard in-person pitches from 4 of them (DEN, AZ, MIA and TEN)...and ultimately chose DEN over AZ and TEN. It was a whole thing that went on for a few weeks.   Irsay did release Manning from his contract...but (IMO) either Manning (or likely both he and Irsay) engineered it as a possibility when Manning signed his contract the year before...which contained a poison pill that ultimately saw him get released.
