Chris Boyle (Facebook): Once the lockout ends will the Dolphins go after a quarterback?
Jesse Agler: Absolutely. They pretty much have to just from a roster standpoint. Right now, Chad Henne is under contract. That’s it. There’s a chance (depending on what the new CBA says) that Tyler Thigpen will be back after he was tendered, but I would guess that the new rules will make him a free agent when they new league year starts.
Chuck Fusca (Facebook): Was there ever a rift between the offensive and defensive players during your era because you felt like they weren’t keeping up with you guys on defense?
Sam Madison: Well, there could have been, but just the way that our defense was built and the type of players that we had, we thought as a unit, that we could beat anybody.
Paul Adamaszek (Facebook): Keith, what do you expect out of [new offensive coordinator] Brian Daboll?
Keith Sims: I’m not entirely sure what to expect—none of us are, but here’s what I want: I want creativity. That doesn’t mean we have to be launching the ball down the field every other play, but I want him to take advantage of mis-matches.
George Taffur (Facebook): Sam, with so much attention going to the offensive side of the ball in the draft, what kind of NEW things can we expect from the defense?
Sam Madison: That’s a good question, George. With all of the firepower that the Dolphins brought in on offense, you have to figure and hope that it will give the defense an opportunity to rest up a little bit more between possessions.
After last night’s show, in which I had trouble comprehending the fact that ProFootballTalk.com’s newest mock draft had the Fins taking FSU quarterback Christian Ponder at #15, we received the following note from a listener (we’ll call him “Mike.”):
SUBJECT: For your factually challenged host Jesse.
1..Christian Ponder is small.
Same size and weight as Brett Farve & Aaron Rodgers.
