    I don't think Parcell's would be quite open to the idea of having a player who can still put up pro-bowl numbers be sent packing for a player like A-Rod.

    The Dolphins don't need another young QB who will need time to learn the system and get familiar with his receivers. They have two in Beck and Henne.

    If I was Parcells, I'd shoot down any package that included Aaron Rodgers. Instead, I'd ask for Greg Jennings, seeing as he is a budding superstar, and the team (Dolphins) have a glaring need at WR.

    You can't say that about Aaron (yet), IMO. He hasn't really proven capable of being a consistently great player, and he doesn't fill a need for the Dolphins. McCown is going to start, and either Henne or Beck will emerge. That's what I think Parcells is hoping.

    Granted Beck was horrible, but he didn't exactly have a ton to work with. I think Parcells sees some potential with him, or otherwise he would've been gone when Bill cleaned house down in Miami.

    Given that Henne was a second round pick, I think it's clear that the Dolphins didn't draft him to be a back-up. At some point they expect him to make a push to be a starter.

    With McCown signing with the Dolphins, he's their immediate starter. That buys the Dolphins time to see who from Beck/Henne emerges in the future. The Dolphins have to think one will, since they drafted Henne and kept Beck after a disastrous year.

    As for that terrible year Beck had last year, it isn't as if he was on an excellent team. He had a bad o-line, below average WRs, and the starting TE was David Martin. I think that says it all. You can't blame Beck's bad year as a rookie solely on Beck, and take that as evidence that he can't succeed in the NFL.

    So basically I think having A-Rod is redundant for the Dolphins. A young QB that is spending his first year in their system.... they already have two of those and don't need another. Definitely not for a pro-bowl player that still has something left in the tank.

    Arod was a better prospect than both of their current QBs. has received nothing but positive praise from coaching staff and has shown at least a little promise in games. neither Henne nor Beck can say any of that.

    Brett Favre, would also have to learn the receivers and learn a new system. So in that case if you were Parcells you would want the younger guy with potential rather than the guy who has at best another year left.

    and Jason Taylor was being shopped for draft picks.... I think Parcells would gladly take Arod for JT. but i also think TT would squash that so very quickly.

    If TT got rid of Gregorious, I'd be really pissed.

    Holy old thread batman! Pretty interesting looking back at some of the comments in this thread. Imagine how things would be different if the idea of this trade actually happened? Yikes!
