Brandon Marshall & The Draft
Wow. We just traded two 2nd round draft pics to the Broncos for Brandon Marshall. That is nuts.Â I went to bed and when I woke up we were suddenly a much better football team.Â And yes, the pics are worth it.Â Marshall has had domestic violence issues and problems with Josh McDaniels in Denver, but as far as I am concerned he is well worth the risk.Â He is going to make Chad Henne so much better, he is going to spread the field and make the run game so much better, he is going to make the recievers so much better.Â The Phins are evidently trying to trade Ted Ginn, but with Marshall there is no way you can double Ginn, or Bess or Hartline or whoever is on the other side.
Someone pointed out on a forum that this trade could be a good PR move and mabye lessen the hurt of Jason Taylor going to the Jets, but to me this is a response to the Jets trading for Cromartie and Holmes.Â It also takes away a second round pick that could have been used to fill the whole that JT and Porter left.Â If we resign JT we can wait another year to see how Cam Wake pans out before drafting an ouside linebacker early.Â We can focus on nose or safety with our first round pick and spend the rest of the draft trying for the other.Â OUr offense could use another guard and maybe a TE, but other than that, it’s really all defense in the draft. I can’t wait.
Speaking of the draft, Dolfans NYC is making a group trip to Radio City Music Hall for the draft.Â You have to get in line at 10pm on Wednesday night to get a wrist band and then come back the following afternoon to get in line for tickets.Â DolfansNYC is going to meet up around 6pm at a near by bar and send scouts out to see if they are giving out tickets before 10pm like they did last year. We will be sending out a Facebook message and email with all the details, so make sure you join our Facebook group.
Also, Michelle is going to be filming the Draft and our meet up for MiamiDolphins.com so anyone who comes out can get in the video and see yourself on the Phins official web site.Â That should be big press for the club!
Lastly, we have some more exciting news!Â We will have DolfansNYC T-shirts for the draft.Â They are aqua with the DolfansNYC logo printed on the front.Â They are insanely bad ass.Â They will be on sale at the draft meet up and at games next year for $15.Â I hope you pick one up so we can really represent at the draft.Â We spent a good deal of money on them, so we need to sell a bunch of them to break even.Â After that the money will be used for promotional stuff for the club, raffle items and other club expenses. Last year Michelle and I dropped a lot of money on this club, and it would be nice to at least break even this year. Anyway, the shirts will be amazing so I don’t think I am going to have to guilt anyone into picking them up… heh.
The shirts won’t be ready until next week, but to see the logo in action, check this picture Michelle took of the DolfansNYC banner her friend printed up for us. This will be hanging out front of Third and Long every Sunday.Â Get excited!
