This morning most Dolphins fan woke up with their team being 5-9 but at least having hope a franchise QB might be on the way. Whether it was Matt Barkley or RG3, fans, including myself were starting to grow in excitement that one of the two QB studs would become the next Dolphins QB for years to come. Tony Pauline believes RG3 will also stay in school and there has been plenty of talk of him wanting a law degree.
However this afternoon Matt Barkley is about to making an announcement about whether or not he will go pro and most sources believe he is staying at USC for another year. There are also reports that the RG3 might also be staying back at college leaving the QB prospects for next year’s draft very thin. While I admire the fact that Barkley wants a national title and to be the #1 pick in the 2013 draft he is really screwing the Dolphins by not declaring.
If all of the following happens it’s a royal smash in the nads to all Dolphins fans. The Dolphins will now probably have to completely re route their entire focus in the draft. With the Dolphins conservative style it would seem likely Justin Blackmon and Trent Richardson will not be targeted and fans have another OT or pass rusher to look forward to. While both are glaring needs for the Dolphins it is not what fans had in mind for this year’s upcoming draft.
Today is a sad day as it appear the search for a franchise QB will continue and Matt Moore will be the starting QB moving forward. Here's to what could have been !
For those who want some names that the Dolphins might consider, look to : Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa, Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina, Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford , David DeCastro, G, Stanford
