I like how everyone hates ireland when the only thing he has done in his one year as full time gm is have a solid draft. He wasnt given an opportunity to add the players he wanted in free agency so he picked up the best playmaker possible, within the money he was allotted, in Reggie Bush. So why all the hate?
> players drafted by Ireland:
- Mike Pouncey- Great draft pick
- Daniel Thomas- Great draft pick
- Clyde Gates- solid pick that filled a glaring need
- Charles Clay- Great draft pick
- Jimmy Wilson- Great draft pick
> players picked up in free agency:
- Reggie Bush- Great pickup
- Columbo- Bad pickup
- Kevin Burnett- started season rough but has picked up play in recent weeks
- Matt Moore- I hate the guy but he has filled in as a below average quarterback
So, with all this I dont understand the hate. The guy picked up two YOUNG playmakers in Reggie Bush and Kevin Burnett that every fan was screaming for. He solidified the offensive lines most important positions by drafting Mike Pouncey to pair with Jake Long. What did he do wrong? He wasnt given the money to go out and get the likes of ahmad bradshaw or trade for Kyle Orton. In my opinion, Jeff Ireland has done his job. He has put alot of talent on this team but people hate him because he didnt draft RYAN MALLETT. Enough is Enough! Ryan Mallett is a third string quarterback. He had ALOT of red flags. Oh, and Andy Dalton supposedly didnt have the arm strength for the pros (smh).. Just relax and let things play out! From what i seen the past 3 weeks this dolphins team is only missing two to three pieces on offense from being pretty damn nice. Just wait till 2012 when the nfl receives the most talented quarterback class since 1983.
