The Miami Dolphins were not able to land Jeff Fisher as their head coach, they have lost out on Peyton Manning this free agency and they failed to trade with the Rams for the No. 2 pick and draft Robert Griffin III.

And finally, this just in, Miami was not able to pick up Green Bay back-up QB Matt Flynn, as he has recently agreed to a three-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN.

What does this mean?

Aside from the fact that it symbolizes Stephen Ross and Jeff Ireland as low-balling, poor excuses for Dolphins management, it means that the Dolphins will most likely be without a franchise QB for yet another year. 

Just today, Alex Smith, 2011 starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, had met with the Miami Dolphins, also according to ESPN. David Garrard is also scheduled to meet with Miami sometime soon. These things don't mean anything, however, as proven by failed visits from Manning, Eric Winston and Matt Flynn.

The more likely scenario for the Miami Dolphins' 2012 season, is that Matt Moore will remain the starting quarterback for at least one more year. Just another offseason of failed attempts and another season of mediocrity.

Miami will not be terrible this coming season, but they will not be great either. With the loss of star receiver Brandon Marshall and a lack of free-agent signings, Miami would be lucky to make the playoffs.

Dolphins fans everywhere are frustrated and confused; they can all thank Stephen Ross and Jeff Ireland for that.
