Griese & the Dolphins.

This has been the rumored marriage for the past two months once the Denver Broncos release him next Tuesday for salary-cap reasons. But Miami coach Dave Wannstedt hasn't been happy that agent Drew Rosenhaus, among others, has been predicting that Griese won't be returning to his Miami roots unless he receives a promise of replacing starter Jay Fiedler.

Wannstedt definitely doesn't want his locker room believing the Griese-to-be-starter rumors before it actually happens. Fiedler has been a loyal soldier, and Wannstedt has stuck with him even though others believe he doesn't have the talent to lead the Dolphins to the Super Bowl. It is a tough situation, considering Wannstedt has a solid group of veterans, especially on defense, who believe him. They could become wary if Griese arrives as expected and quickly jumps to first in the throwing rotation.

But Wannstedt has to do what's right, and Griese is a solid addition. Plus, he also has to worry about his own job security. He may have to make the playoffs this season to remain employed by Wayne Huizenga.

Good post GP. I think Wannstedt had better do what it takes to get him in the playoffs. Let them battle it out in training camp.

I will say this....Griese did "contribute" to R. Smith's league leading year. Fiedler has never done that. Also the 'Fins did not make the playoffs last year when they should of. I think both of them have fallen short of expetations.

I think Griese's the better qb. Fiedler is a bit more athletic and mobile, but as a passer Griese gets the nod. I agree w/ you Homey, Dallas would be a better match.

Is Miami Griese home town? If so I see why he would go to Miami over Dallas. He knows his Football days are on the decline, he should have lots of money, I would go home and still make some more $$$

Bob Griese's son, I would imagine he spent quite a few years in Miami.
