HYDE: When picking all-time team, don't let modern and po...

Well, when you look at our selections for all time OLB's, BB was a run stuffer, but not much of a threat rushing the passer, and he couldn't cover worth crap. Cox was a great pass rusher, but very average against the run, and downright awful in pass coverage...he just didn't have the discipline you need to be considered an all time great...he was more likely to get a PF call than he was to make a big play for you. But Hugh...he trashed BOTH his knees, one year apart, but still was the best OLB we ever had...he could do it all, even after his injuries: rush the passer, cover, and play the run. He'd have made the pro bowl for us a number of times if we had just had a good defense around him. But Marino and our great offense were burning up records and getting all the press. Another guy that never gets mentioned who was another standout OLB for us, was EJ Junior. He could do it all too.

I don't see why we can't have both Nick and Zach named to the all time Phin team. Afterall, Shula was named our all time coach, and he was the inventor of the 3-4 defense. This automatically places Bob Baumhower as the all time Phin NT...neither Timbo or Manny played NT, and while both were outstanding players, BB was better than both of them at NT. The all time Phin RB should be Del Williams...both Ricky and Merc were druggies and don't deserve the honors on that score. Stoyo was the best kicker we had. He was MUCH more consistent than Mare. Don't even talk about Garo...he played the first few years of his carreer with the goal posts on the goal line...they weren't moved to the end line until 1974. I also like Geisler and Moore over Webb...Webb was a great pass blocker, but mediocre at best as a run blocker. I like Mandich, but he was not anywhere near as good a pass catcher as Rose, Hardy, or McMike. The best TE we ever had by far, was Keith Jackson. AJ Duhe was an OLB who moved around a lot. I also think the best OLB we ever had was Hugh Green...he just had the misfortune of playing on some really bad Olivehead coached Phin efenses. Finally, Don McNeil, pre achilles injury, was better than Madison. And what about assistants??? Best DC was Arny, best OC was Stevens.

DC has NEVER completed less than 60% of his passes in his entire carreer, EVER. Even playing behind the worst line in his life last year, he STILL completed over 60% of his passes. He's a 3 time pro bowler, and he currently is ranked 6th all time in QBR in all of NFL history. You don't post those kinds of numbers if you can't read defensesDC is a pocket passer as well...that's the Scott Linehan offense...always has been. DC just HAS the ability to make big plays with his legs as well, and when the protection breaks down, and it does, he can get away from it. Green is 37 years old, has vastly less mobility than even a wounded DC currently has, and he's one more concussion from retirement...he's playing behind a work in progress line. I don't think it will be very long before Green wishes he could wake up to find the Good Witch of the North sent him back home to Kansas too... No matter what happens, we have to pay DC $5.5 mil this year. Green had the exact same triple ligament knee injury DC had...the big differences between the two is that DC is already a proven 3 time pro bowler, while Green had never played in a pro bowl and only had ONE good season in Washington prior to his injury. Green took TWO years to come back, while DC rushed back and was out on the field in 9 months. We should keep DC, put him on PUP to start the season if we have to, and then put him on IR if it comes to that, and get those 4 or 5 more pro bowl 4K+ yard seasons he has left in him down the road like KC got out of Green...we gotta pay the man anyway, so just keep him and let him heal. THEN see what he can do. I think it's stupid to have given up a 2nd rounder on a proven player, pay him millions, only to cut him before you ever give him a chance to play healthy for your team. It's incredibly short sighted. I'll tell you this much, if the worst case scenario happens: we go 4-12, Ginn turns out to be just the guy I think he is, STer only, lousy WR, Green gets knocked out, Beck gets in and plays awful, Quinn has a good year in Cleveland, and DC goes on to play well elsewhere next year, Cowher will be our HC in 08...you can carve that one in stone too. Of course, I don't think that will actually happen, as I think Quinn will be a bust, and even if Green goes down, Lemon will get the nod, not Beck. Because our line is so bad, I think we'll be a 4-12 to 6-10 team again, but Cam will get another year.

What line has AJ, or any other QB since Dannyboy for that matter, had to play behind here in Miami??? AJ has Thomas and Runyon in Philly...that's 2 pro bowlers there...and a solid interior 3 too...they protect him well, and he put up good numbers in there. Brian Greise was a pro bowl QB in Denver...he comes here, and he sucks...was it him, or our pathetic excuse for a line??? What has Ogun done since he left us??? He's getting paid major coin but only averaging 7 sacks a year for the Bears...he averaged 12.5 a year when he started for us. Ogun was a product of JT...he's not an elite DE or worth anywhere near the money Chicago paid for him. We got Marty Booker and a 3rd round pick for him which we used on Crowder...as of right now, we're definately on the plus side of that deal big time in my book. What was wrong with the Boston deal??? We used a 6th round pick on a 2 time pro bowler, renegotiated his contract and paid him peanuts the whole time he was here...it's not Rick's fault the guy got hurt. Injuries are just bad luck. We gambled and lost, be we didn't gamble with very much...we had everything to gain and very little to lose. No GM hits on EVERYTHING they do. I think using the #2 overall pick in the draft on Rick Mirer is MUCH worse than any blunders Wanny or Spielman made...and Mueller followed that gem pick up with Dan McGwire and Brian Bosworth too. Wann/Speil made plenty of mistakes, but none of them were as bad as any of those...ok, the 2 1sts and 4th swap for Ricky was pretty bad, but we did get 2 pro bowl seasons out of Ricky FIRST before that deal went south. Now how much different would our fortunes have been if we had taken the guys Speilman wanted (Brees, Boldin, and Green) over Wanny's blunders (Fletcher, Moore, and Fiedler)?

Oh, make no mistake about it, I was never sold on Rick either...I just would have liked to have seen what he could have done without Wanny messing things up for him. I think it was Spielman who pulled the tigger on Feeley, but in all fairness to AJ, and every other QB we've had since Dan, our offensive line is the real problem...AJ sure didn't have any problems playing well in Philly, 1st or 2nd time around, did he??? Sure does make a BIG difference for a QB having a LT and a RT that are both pro bowlers, don't it??? Scott I root for Miami and anybody that plays the Jets!  (Jun 29, 2007 | post #109)

Speilman wasn't that bad...keep in mind WANNY called all the shots until his final year, not Rick. Rick's one and only draft brought us Carey, Hadnot, Poole, and Pope...it wasn't Rick's fault Poole tore up his knee...IMHO, he would have been a really good corner too. Speilman was to Wanny what Mueller was to Satan...he gave Wanny advice, and he was ignored. Now if you're going to give Mueller a pass on his first 2 years here because Satan called all the shots, the you gotta do the same for Rick...let's be fair now. From what I've heard, Speilman wanted Drew Brees...Wanny took Fletcher...Speilma n wanted Anquan Boldin, Wanny took Moore...and Speilman wanted to trade for Trent Green...Wanny wanted Jay Feidler. If a GM makes reccomendations, and the HC ignores him and makes his own choices, you can't blame the GM. I think Rick got a raw deal here...it will be interesting to see what he does for the Vikes...but who calls the shots in Minny, him, or Childress???

Wright is 245 lbs...he'll be a linebacker in the NFL, not a DE...and a SSSSLLLOOOWWWW one at that. I'll be surprised if he makes the team. I liked the Satele pick, but what we REALLY need, and still do, are both tackle positions, LT in particular…we didn’t draft ANY tackles. And no, we didn't need a QB. We had DC, Lemon, and Vick. DC is a 3 time pro bowler...let the man heal, and he'll be just fine. Instead, we went out and got Green...we put a 37 year old who is one more concussion from retirement behind a shaky line that's a work in progress...I hope he ups his life insurance policy before the season starts...JT is right, one good hit, and his egg will be scrambled...how much you wanna bet it will be a DE coming off the corner on Carey's side??? We had to pay DC $5.5 mil whether he plays here or not...so we pay another injury risk guy who is also an old man another $5 mil to operate behind a weak line...can you say, making the same mistake twice two years running??? I'd have rather we opened the season with Lemon, back him up with Vick, and let DC heal COMPLETELY, even if he spends the whole year on IR. Trent Green had the same exact major triple ligament knee injury DC had, and look what he did after he healed…the difference between the two, is DC was rushed back, Green was not. Instead, we're letting DC go, and going with the old man who had a rough campaign last year, and who I think is clearly in decline. Well, we made our bed, now we have to lay in it...at least Lemon and Vick could run like heck...we give up a cheap Vick for an expensive Green and Beck...and both will have major problems till we fix our line.

Ah...that's what I thought...I would have loved to have Thomas though! But we'd have had to give up WAY too much to move up to get him though...Staley will be a fine LT for many years to come...assuming he stays healthy of course...

Yeah, that's true...and it's not like his salary counts against the cap or anything...Wayne will just have to buy the 95 foor yacht instead of the 100 footer his wife wanted...the poor guy... Still, I don't like seeing somebody get rewarded until they do something worth getting rewarded for...and I think he botched this past draft big time. We had 3 major areas of need going in: LT, DE, and CB...we didn't fill any of those needs. Scott I root for Miami and anybody that plays the Jets or the Crimson Tide!  (Jun 27, 2007 | post #85)

Extend if warranted, but not nowWhat? Best one he had was 97 when he got Shawn Springs #3 overall and Walter Jones #6 overall; he didn't get anybody else in that draft. Did you forget that Mueller drafted Mirer #2 overall, McGwire and Bosworth??? He has had a number of drafts where he didn't get one good player, and not a single draft where he got more than 2. The NFL average is 2 good starters a draftDidn't like many of his picks, especially the Ginn pick...and he ignored our most glaring position of need: LTAgreed...I'm not holding last year's debacle against himHaving a lot of picks is good, but you have to pick good players with them. I like the Satele, Mauia, and the punter pick...don't like any of the rest of them...well, Beck might be ok, but until we fix our offensive line, it won't matter who we have under center...and we didn't fix it...again...for the umpteenth year in a rowNo, give credit where credit is due, Cameron cut the dead weight, not MuellerNot me, I'd rather have Ginn over Quinn...and I didn't want Ginn either...I wanted us to trade down, get more picks, and take Joe Staley, and FINALLY get our franchise LT for the next decadeGinn will definitely help us in the return game, but he's not going to make it as a receiver...he's a poor route runner, and his hands are marginal. It won't take NFL teams long to figure out he can't get off the jamb...the big physical corners will kick the living crap out of himWe didn't need a QB. That pick would have been MUCH better spent on an offensive linemanContracts might be where Mueller is valuable...but I have no faith in his abilities to acquire talentHe hasn't done anything for us yet to justify saying he's doing a fantastic job for us yet, and his history shows that as far as talent acquisition goes, he's average at best, and pretty mediocre overall. We'll see soon enough what this draft class will do for us...I'm not going to get my hopes up very much. Ginn will be exciting to watch every time there's a punt or KO, but don't expect much else out of him...#9 overall and $20 mil for a kick returner is a major waste of NLF cap and draft resources in my book.

In a much shorter carreer, WannSpiel drafted Chambers, McMike, the Bullfrog, Carey, and Hadnot too...hitting on one or two high picks in a draft is something anybody can do...getting 2 good quality starters every draft is the NFL AVERAGE...you start getting 3 and 4 good quality starters in a draft, and doing that regularly, on top of always getting at least 2, NOW you're good. Now you tell me how many drafts Mueller had where he got those 3 and 4 good long term starters, and compare that number against the number of drafts where he didn't get ANYBODY of note, or just one starter. You're going to find that list tilted SHARPLY in the one and none category. I think the best draft Mueller ever had was 97 when he got Walter Jones and Shawn Springs...but those were both first round picks...HIGH ones too, Springs #3 overall, Jones #6 overall...he didn't get anybody else. We are talking about the same man who also drafted Rick Mirer #2 overall...he also bombed out on Dan McGwire at #16 overall, and didn't get a single player in that whole draft...not one...nor in the Mirer draft...or in the Brian Bosworth draft...and a bunch of others in Seattle...in fact, I go through their drafts, and he has no 3 or more player ones there, or in New Orleans...2 is the best he's done, and he only has a couple of those...he's mostly a one guy and none GM...I stand by my assessment: he's average at best, and mostly pretty mediocre, and he's made some MAJOR draft day blunders with VERY high picks.  (Jun 26, 2007 | post #52)

I see no reason to give Mueller a raise. The only thing of note he's done in his entire NFL carreer, is fleece Dave Wannstedt out of 2 first round picks for Ricky Williams. Other than that, his BEST drafts have been average at best, and he's had mostly mediocre to completely forgetable ones. There's nothing special about Randy Mueller...any one of us could do just as good a job as far as picking talent goes. Maybe he's good at negotiating contracts or something we don't see in the public eye, but his eye for talent is pretty dismal...he hits on a good player every now and then, and they're always the high picks when he does hit on one...the ones you EXPECT to get a good player from. I'm not impressed with him one bit...I think Spielman was better...and not by much either...  (Jun 26, 2007 | post #35)
