If he isn't able to resign them and still have $$$ left over to bring in players that either add to the core of the team and/or provide depth then Ireland is an epic fail.

    Ultimately a GM is graded based on the team's record under his watch and right now to go from a 11-5 to 7-9 to 7-9 to 6-10 to 2-3 seasons make Ireland a below par GM.
    If that was true he would have been fired with Sparano. Records are more on the coach. Ireland doesn't call plays. Ross felt the Dolphins had talent, but Sparano wasn't developing it. So far Philbin is proving him right.

    I think he has been far from perfect...but the most important pick he has made will be Ryan Tannehill.

    He has hit some and missed some. His record in free agency is very spotty and this year it was awful.

    I have mixed emotions...When I look at the team as a whole I love certain things that are going on, the O-line is looking like it could become elite, The D-line and even the front seven as a whole is a strong unit. The secondary is improving and there is a lot of youth throughout the football team. Most of all, as one of the biggest proponents of wanting him to draft Ryan Tannehill I am pleased with that selection. Not happy with the receiver area as a whole.

    I do agree with the trading of Vontae Davis, who is playing awful for them. The Marshall trade bothers me without a solid replacement plan in place. Marshall has the 4th most yards in the league right now.

    This next off-season is a huge one for him and the entire Dolphin nation in general. I pray he is the right guy because this draft and off-season will determine if this current edition goes on to accomplish something significant or not in my opinion....it is that important.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.

    I posted 3 links earlier in the thread that proved Ireland wanted someone other then Philbin(Page 6). Or just click my sig.

    If those links actually proved anything, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

    Good analogy actually

    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    That's a bad GM. People calling for Ireland's head are the same morons who demanded Matt Flynn. And demanded we keep Vontae. And said we'd never have big production from our WR corps without Marshall and his distractions.
