The Dolphins and Andrew Luck
 
With the 1st pick in the 2012 Draft The Dolphins take Andrew Luck!

That has a really good ring. I know I am starting this a little early but as of right now it is a real possibility. And if it were to happen it would be the only silver lining from the Trifecta time in Miami. Ha!

What do you guys think? Are the Dolphins the front runner to land Luck in the 2012 draft?

Love the ring to it but I dont think we are the front runners. No question we will for sure be in play for him all season though. The Colts seem to be the team in the lead for Luck, then the Chiefs then us.

You guys have a tougher schedule but the Colts are more inept and have major injuries already.

For the love of God please win some games so us QB needy teams can get Luck. You guys already have a great QB. Please dont be greedy.

LOL I'm not so sure Manning is coming back. And if he does well we can't let some other team just take Luck! I don't want to face that guy!

I don't think we are tanking for Luck, I think the team is just that bad.

I would agree that due to injuries Indy is looking pretty bad but we are in the running. I say it is between Indy and Miami. KC won yesterday so maybe they will get on a roll and win some games.

dolfan75071 10-04-2011 01:56 PM

As "Luck" would have it, KC and INDY play each other this week. So KC either goes 2 down or Miami is in the lead for Luck. ha!

If I remember right KC's schedule softens up toward the end of the season so I think they'll put some wins together.

The Vikings have more talent than either of our teams but in that division with that schedule they have a shot at Luck too.

Seems like we all know Luck will be the number 1 pick in the 2012 draft. Unless he decides to play out 1 more yr of eligibility even tho he's graduated. IMO the next QB in line would be Nick Foles of Arizona. I have watched a lot of him recently and he isn't as polished as Luck but he will get there and be a franchise QB for some unlucky team. haha Now, I am in no way saying Foles is Marino but he has a very similar release. I like what I've seen of him. If we don't get Luck, I would take Foles in a heart beat.

It is looking like the Dolphins are becoming the front runner for Luck but I would argue its more due to their terrible defense - especially that secondary than Henne. I wouldn't mind seeing Luck end up in Miami. You guys would finally have your Marino replacement.

dolfan75071 10-31-2011 08:41 AM

So we all know Andrew Luck is the number 1 pick in 2012 and a very good QB. Who is the number 2 QB coming out in 2012? My list at this time looks like this:

Luck
Barkley
Tannehill
Weeden
Foles
Griffin III

Does anyone in that list scream "Franchise QB" besides Luck???

Of course any of them would be an upgrade.

Still think the Colts are in the lead but we are still defeated so we're definitely still in it. Obviously we all want Luck but if we miss out on him, Barkley is the clear-cut second QB at this point and would be a pretty darn good consolation prize. After those two, there's still enough questions about the next tier of guys (Jones, Tannehill, RGIII) that I'm not sure I'd want to take any of them in the top 10 so I'm really pulling to have the first or second pick.

I think our teams have a stranglehold on those two picks my friend. No worries.

I am beginning to agree that Barkley will be a good consolation prize.

Da-Phins 11-06-2011 09:11 AM

Yeah I think without question the Colts are going to end up with the 1st pick. Lucky bastards.....

The Dolphins atleast hang in there and have some talent to put up a good fight and maybe get a chance to win a game or two. The Colts are just flat out horrible and get their ass kicked every game. But anyway, congrats Colts on getting struck by luck and going from Manning to Luck while us Dolphins are still looking for a QB after 13 years.

killxswitch 11-06-2011 04:29 PM

I think Barkley is a nice consolation prize.

Da-Phins 11-07-2011 09:17 AM

Im iffy on every QB expect Luck. I dont trust Barkley's arm all that much or the fact that he's a USC QB. Lately the QB's that came from there havent been all that.

Maybe the number 13 is an unlucky number. We might have been better off if Marino had #2.
