09:04 AM ET 03.20 | The Dolphins' quarterback search intensifies this week. On Monday, Iowa's Ricky Stanzi auditions at his Pro Day. On Tuesday, the Dolphins will conduct a private workout with Colin Kaepernick after Nevada's Pro Day and meet with him for a third time. Next Sunday, the Dolphins will have a private session with Cam Newton on Auburn's campus and told people that coach Tony Sparano and Jeff Ireland likely will attend. Most expect Newton will be gone well before Miami picks 15th, but his inconsistent accuracy at the NFL Scouting Combine raised questions. Also this week, the Dolphins reportedly will work out Missouri's Blaine Gabbert, who should be long gone before Miami picks. And Miami has a March 29 private workout with Arkansas' Ryan Mallett.

Finding a QB would fix one of their problems.

Just one.

What about evaluating Dalton, as long as they are looking?

Anyone see the article about the low Wonderlic test scores, and the associated comments by coaches?
The LSU cornerback and the Georgia receiver are apparently not Mensa candidates .

Take the question mark off the title of the article and you effectively remove the "rumor" part of T and R.

Couldn't agree more... Someone is going to get a solid kid when they draft him.

If the Dolphins need a long-term solution at QB, they shouldn't look at Newton.

Dalton? Are you guys talking about the bouncer from Road House?

He's a bust for sure.

They have four QBs on their roster now. Is Gruden advising them.

As you mentioned once before 50, Gruden never met a QB he didn't like... unless that QB was already on his roster.

I just checked that out. Not many folks seem to think the Wonderlic test is worth a hoot when it comes to evaluating how someone will play on the field. A couple of coaches imply that the test indicates how well players can process information, and for some of those players who don't test well, the simpler you can keep a player's role the sooner you'd get the results you're hoping for.

And then there was the coach who broke out with "it's hard for dumb receivers..." when he mentions how well some players might grasp the more complex offensive schemes.

Tell us what you really think, coach...

Last year, the four-letter network aired a program where Gruden sat with the top QB prospects from the 2010 draft and asks them question and critiqued their performances. As I recall, I think Gruden had some reservations about Jimmy Clausen. I'd like to see him do another one of those shows with this year's QBs.

I liked how last off-season, Stephen Ross was claiming Chad Henne would be better than Dan Marino.

Apparently Ross thought that if he believed it enough it would come true.

So much for that.

Laughed then, laughed now.

I remember that show. That would be good stuff.

Nice. So far, the spammers are more active than the Sunday intern crew...

Was sorta odd to see that a one-digit wonder named was an offensive lineman.
