    im not really concerned with who the dolphins get as their qb....as long as they have cam cameron calling the plays i think we, as pats fans, have nothing to worry about.

    culpepper is better than both of them anyways.

    I would rather have them get Trent Green. He is older and plus I think Carr is really underrated and just with an ok line he can really make things happen. This wouldnt off been the case if they just drafted Matt Leinart or Vince Young in last years draft.

    Green has had success in the NFL. Carr never has. As a DOLPHINS' fan, I want Green.

    From 2002-2005 he tallied 4000+ yards passing seasons. 3 straight big years for Green with practically no WR to speak of. Green has been a very good NFL quarterback.

    Um 2002-2005. That was two years ago. Plus after seeing what the COLTS defense did to Trent Green and the Chiefs offense. My god, Green was awful. I am not afraid of him and I am not afraid of Carr, he sucked against us but then again he has absolutely no O-Line.

    well according to the stats, culpepper was abetter qb than brees....not to mention cpep's mvp worthy 2004 season, that was eclipsed by manning

    and again, brees came off of a (major) 360 degree rotator cuff surgery on his throwing arm, and culpepper came off of a knee injury...dolphins would be "stupid" to take the guy with the shoulder surgery...

    carr had no oline while green had an exceptional oline, thats why green was able to rack up 4000 yards

    not to mention green had priest holmes behind him, then larry johnson...i'd say they're just a tweek better than davis(williams now) and dayne...so yeah

    Green is a good, solid PROVEN QB - I picked him for the dolphins b/c he's older and Carr's struggles could have been due, at least in part, to a TERRIBLE O-line.

    and imo...whoever the phins got, they wouldve lasted as long as cpep did...

    1. i'm sure the saint's oline was an upgrade from the dolphins,
    2. horn is a better wr than chambers, as chambers completely disapeared in the 06 season,
    3. ronnie brown was going into his first year ever as the featured back, as he always in his career split carries, with ricky williams and in auburn with carnel williams as opposed to having a rested deuce or a rested bush splitting carries
    4. emergence of colston as a #1 possession wr, and the versitility to form mismatches with bush in the backfield...main the ILB covers the HB, but if bush is lined up in the slot, the ILB will have a hard to keeping up, as we saw in the NFC champ game with bush's 80 something yard td...and also having another verticle threat in devery henderson....

    henderson lining up in the #1 spot for horn, deep threat on the right, colston lining up in the #2 as a possession guy, and bush lining up in the #3 slot as another deep threat on the other side...

    that lineup sure beats a diminishing chambers and booker 1/2 punch...mcmichael was dropping balls as fast as t.o. was the only real threat was welker, who just came off a punt return or kickoff return, and who was also traded to the pats this offseason....

    The fish have not had a Qb since number 13, and could have had one last yr, but chose a lazy fat albert.. If I was a fish fan, I would hope for David Carr, but as a Pats fans I guess it does not matter to me..

    Green. By far. When Carr was able to stay on his feet and actually get the ball off, he showed flashes of accuracy and power. He could be a very good QB with a decent O-Line in front of him.

    Yeah and the fish heads were all babbling about Culpepper's 2004 season when he was totally awful in 2005 before he got injured. Stats from two years previously dont mean your getting a good QB. ;)

    I voted Carr because i think Green will do the better job, and i dont want that with Miami being in our division. Im not to familiar with Carr, but do know Green. Green is actually one of my Favorite QB's in the leauge. I think Green is a winner and and a bigger threat to us, therefore voted for Carr.

    True, but your team doesn't win SB's without a QB. It goes both ways :D :D

    i hope they will not bring Carr

    he playied in HOU with a terrible OL and, imho, he could be a good qb in a changing scenario

    for that reason i hope he will not be in a Dolphin uniform this fall

    and i do not understand Houston too (but this is another matter...)

    hmm sounds very familiar...."might become better in a new uniform"....

    so far culpepper and harrington failed....although i still think harrington could be good...

    if they do get carr it'll be the same thing....he'll end up competing for the starting job in miami, as saban did, he'll give carr a chance, but it wont be enough time for carr to adapt....like harrington....and everyone who once thought a change of scenery is what joey needed, he was booed off....and replaced by lemon...who played even more terribly....

    imo - bring carr in, bring green in....dolphins fans wont give them enough time to actually learn the system....like harrington...then cheers for lemon will be in an uproar....because he looked good in preseason....(also to note that lemon looked good in preseason b/c he was playing against scrub 3rd string players who were trying to play for a roster spot)....


    phins havnt been the same since #13.....its just a shame that such great talent like ronnie brown and even chris chambers is going to waste....i ha dthis discussion with a friend who's a phin fan....and i agreed that if you switched chambers with say reggie wayne, chambers wouldve overtaken harrison for the #1 spot in indianapolis by now...

    We wern't winning them when we had the best QB of all time throwing the ball. That just proves that it takes more than a good QB to win championships in this game.

    That's true; but it sure helps.

    THe scenario I don't like, and the one that I forecast in my mock, is Miami moving up for Brady Quinn. But I'm now beginning to think they'll need to get into the top three to do that, and I cam=n't see them giving up so much.

    No one knows what you're getting with David Carr. he had no real chance to succeed in Houston. He could be a good QB and we'd never know.

    You know what you're getting withy Trent Green: a past-his-prime good QB, but nothing special.

    The Dolphins are not the '00 Ravens or '02 bucs, where all they need is a solid QB to not make mistakes. Put Trent Green on the team and they're less likely to be awful than with Carr but less likely to be good.

    I'd rather guarantee their QB is nothing special than take the chance he can actually be really good, therefore I hope they pick up Green.

    So you admit it then. Culpepper is not a good QB and you want someone else.
    Figures. So that means you also admit that the stupid thread you started here about the fins winning it all is somthing you do not actually believe in and never did because Culpepper is a bum.

    that's a very good point about Joey Harrington. I never thought of his situation like that, but, yes, Carr's situation this year would be very much like Harrington last year. Sometimes a change of scenery doesn't do the trick.
