    Where are Aqua-Boy and Feelinthepain? I really would like to hear their "unbiased" opinions of their own veteran players, including JT, questioning the pick....

    Wasn't Mueller the maroon who traded a 2nd round pick to the Eagles for A.J. Feeley before Saban was hired? And they gave him back the keys to the kingdom after Saban left? Man, their owner is as bad as Dan Snyder... in a "I have no friggin clue what I am doing" kind of way. If Shula and Marino had any balls, they'd put a group together to buy the Dolphins and save them from themselves.

    I'm surprised to see Taylor say anything... I think he's really getting frustrated... maybe he'll join his former teammate and "graduate" next season

    I still think Beck will surprise people... but still think that Ginn will disappoint... but geeze... give the guy a chance

    Wow. I'm surprised. I've don't think I can recall veteran players ever saying something so unprofessional about a draft pick before. I thought it was a joke what they said was so bad.

    I know that Bullock called out Pacman Jones before he showed up to camp, but that was different, Pacman brought that on himself.

    All Ginn did was get drafted. And he was already hurt. He doesn't deserve to be trashed by his teammates like that.

    Poor form.

    Beyond unprofessional. Is it too trite to say "You wouldn't hear Patriots talking like that"?

    If I was Ginn I'd be thinking, "They should have picked Quinn in the first round and me with their second round pick, but hey, I'm not complaining. Do you know the difference in signing bonus between the 9th pick and the 41st pick in the draft? WHOO-HOO!"

    This is about money. The organization haggles over every penny with these veterans, using durability against them. Then they draft an injured kick returner and immediately pay him a signing bonus worth more than the total value of a lot of these guys' contracts. The track record of the Miami front office is so abysmal the veterans don't trust their judgment anymore. John Beck was horrible in OTAs and made the 2nd rd pick look like an immediate mistake. There is a crisis of confidence with the veterans on the team. Cam Cameron has not made a strong early impression. They don't like the way Culpepper has been manipulated in favor of Trent Green, without being given a chance to compete, after all his rehab. Unless Trent Green has more of a fastball left than he showed vs Indy in the playoffs, this could be a n absolute debacle in Miami. A couple of things can rescue this season for Miami: (1) Green had an injury vs. Indy, and still has something left (2) R. Brown emerges into a 1300 yard back (3) Jason Allen, moved back to cb, excels (I think he will be great at cb). It will be very interesting to keep an eye on Phin Training Camp. The team could go anywhere from 4-12 to 9-7, depending on Green. The schedule is very tough.

    Interesting. Feelmypain spit shines Jason Taylor's balls daily at this site, and also is 'loving' the Ginn pick, because Ginn is singlehandedly going to 'stretch the field' like never before in Miami. Meanwhile, his idol, Jason Taylor, ain't so sure.

    Lover's spat? :)

    Still an absence of comments from the Dolphins posters, without regard can anyone imagine a Patriot Player commenting negatively on a draft pick?? Thank goodness we are Pats Fans.

    I disagree with them going public with this. It should've have been available for Ginn to hear it. I don't know, maybe they're trying to light a fire under his ass a little. As for the pic, yes, it was surprising, but it's not like the Dolphins got a scrub. We still got our QB of the future and got a player who will immediately become one of the most electric players in football.

    My screen name is Aqua4Ever04, it's completely unfunny when you change it for personal pleasure. If I had a really borderline name then sure, it's a field day, but doing that is completely elementary. Should I call you DaLikesItInDaButt?

    Taylor deserves that treatment, he's the best defensive player in the NFL.

    I'm thinking you meant to say shouldn't. Right? It's not the kids fault he got picked when he did, so I don't think he should have to hear that stuff

    I actually laughed out loud at that one.

    Hey Aqua, maybe this is some new kind of rookie hazing.

    Agreed. Poor guy's been taking heat ever since they announced his name that fateful day in NYC.

    If he doesnt do much in his rookie season, which is almost certain for most WR's their rookie year. Then those fans are going to hate that team.

    Listen, WELCHER, you've earned everything that you get so I couldn't give a care what you like and what you don't. You should have deleted your account and left so we wouldn't have to hear you BS. If you don't like getting ridiculed, live up to your bet and leave.

    Those comments are out of control! What a messed up franchise. Sad, sad, sad...

    SeanBru, I feel that same way. How do you feel if you're Ginn? :eek:

    I think it is kind of unfair to slam Ginn like this. Especially JT & Holliday. I thought they were supposed to be veteran leaders. Really pathetic to slam the kid for something that he didnt ask for.
