Post 4 Quartbacks on the roster--who goes?
With the resigning of Pennington (which I like), Miami is not going to keep 4 QB's to start the season. Which one goes?

Henne: Starter
Pennington: More than capable backup
White: I would love to see him dealt but Miami would never get what they drafted him at
Thigpen: Good young athlete

I think the only option is to trade Thigpen.

I would love to give him and a 2nd for Brandon Marshall.

dont think that denver would take thigpen and a 2nd for marshall. As far as QB's I believe we have 3 QB's, cuz unless White has made vast improvements so far he is going to have to play WR or RB. Every time he was under center last year he looked scared and like he was uncomfortable playing QB in the NFL. Everyone was saying that "oh he's just a rook", but I dont remember Henne, Marino, Sanchez, Flacco, Ryan, even Vince Young looking that nervous as White did. I just dont think he is a full time QB. Something like Randle El perhaps.

Obviously I say Pat White is the one to go. I guess however I am in the minority around here that Thigpen even for his lack of experience should be thought about as the #2. I just think Pennigton is far to fragile & the lack of arm strength is more than a big deal , its crucial.

Pat White isn't going anywhere, we spent a 2nd rounder on the guy and he has athleticism we just need to develop him. How effective he can be, well i don't know about that. I strongly believe that Thigpen or Penny will be traded either sometime around draft or preseason. Look at how we got penny, we thought we were going into the season with josh mcclown and we snagged penny at the start of training camp. Whichever qb draws more interest will be gone.

I don't think it's too unrealistic to keep 4 QB's.

Is Pat White really even a QB??

I would tend to agree, but I think Miami's front office is thinking of trading Thigpen seeing as he has more value. Miami spent a 5th on Thigpen, and could probably get that or better back for him. Miami spent a 2nd on White, and they are not going to get anything near that much back for him.

If Miami doesn't trade Thigpen, they will most likely list White as a receiver.

Probably Thigpen. I don't think those interceptions he threw in the last game sat too well with Parcells. Who knows? The bottom line is that Thigpen has big play ability and there are many quarterback coaches who feel they can get him to the next level. He's a valuable trade option.

If they list White as a WR, then who gets cut now?

Ginn-???
Hartline- NO
Bess- NO
Camerillo: No
Turner- Doubt it
Free Agent WR- NO
Drafted WR- NO

Am I missing anybody? My point: If White is a QB, Miami needs to move one.
If White is a WR, Miami needs to move one.

Not necessarily. He could be a utility player who plays WR, QB and even some 3rd down RB.

The regime should just admit that drafting Pat White was a major screw up and cut him. No one is gonna' give anything higher than a 7th for a guy who can't complete a single pass. He is also too small and slight to last in the NFL, as he so painfully learned against Pittsburgh.

Trade Thigpen for a draft pick. He'll bring the highest pick

I'm not sure any of them are traded until the late summer after teams see what they have at the QB position. For Miami, it wouldn't make sense dealing Thigpen now only to find out that Pennington's shoulder is crap and the only option behind Henne is White.

If a team out there thinks Thigpen is the real deal and would surrender a 3rd rounder for him at draft time then Miami would probably take it, but does anyone value him that much? If this is draft is as deep as the analysts say then most will avoid trading their picks for depth players.

I agree, but I would like to see him after another full offseason program/preseason opportunities before making a final judgment here. Heck, any time one of the trifecta heaps a lot of love on anyone they end up cutting him. He has honey oozing all over him.

There cannot be any trade value for White so your best bet is moving him to a slash position and seeing if he can do something else.

My thoughts exactly. I was surprised when we said that he was going to used as a traditional QB. I was never a huge fan of the White pick, but I thought he would be a great slash weapon. He's 5-11 190lbs, which is bigger than Ginn already and about the size of most RB's. I say gain some upper body strength and have him try out slot and RB packages.

I agree Thigpen has the most trade value & can bring the highest pick but does anyone really feel that if henne goes down & Pennington goes in that this team is gonna make a serious push into the playoffs.

Letting Thigpen go would be the ultimate in stupidity. #2 QB's are a must these days and Pennington will be here one year at most....and I don't want to see anything in his hands these days except a clipboard. He is a great guy to have to mentor your young QB's though. Pat White was a massive waste of a 2nd round pick. Don't carry him on the roster as a QB. Use him as a running back or maybe a wide receiver....but even then, he is taking up valuable roster space.

If we can trade for someone like Olsen then I believe Pennington could be solid if needed. After all Parcells has done more with less (Hostetler)

I agree on the CP, we don't even know how he is going to look after ANOTHER shoulder injury. His arm was jello before the injury, I'm afraid to see it when he comes back. Thigpen needs to stay unless we can get a 4th round pick or better. I would give White one more year to develope because he was picked in the 2nd round and you can't just cut him now it's too soon. Honestly I like CP but I wouldn't have resigned him, he'll be a great coach some day but his QB days are over.
