Trusting Miami’s Brain Trust?

The Dolphins might have for the first time since it’s existence some of the most experienced people managing from behind the scenes. In fact I can’t think of a more collected group of people with the experience that GM Chris Grier has put together this year, ever associated at one time in Miami’s front office.

Only time will tell but their experience alone should bring about a confidence that they will get it right and so trusting in their decisions should come with ease. But I always TRUST but VERIFY and how they Draft starting this year will go a long way in helping build confidence in the management team in place.

So Lets look again at who we have at the helm:

These are the men in charge of our Dolphins rebuild with the bulk of the blame or praise on GM Chris Grier’s shoulders. Collectively they bring a wealth of experience and all have paid their dues working their way up the hard way.

They have all had some success and failures but hopefully working collectively as a group they will achieve their goals and we Dolphins fans will be the benefactor of that success.
