I'm a Miami Dolphins fan first and foremost...I'll always hope my team wins whether we're 11-1, 8-4, 5-7 or 1-11. Rooting for the Miami Dolphins to lose for ANY reason is just plain stupid in my opinion, especially to get a man fired from his job. That just screams bad karma to me.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    Well... Maybe we can use some bad karma, because the good one certainly hasn't been helping. lol

    Yep, for instance look at the bad karma the Colts are having, they were rooting for losses every week and now they're set with a HOF talent at the most important position in the game for the next decade and a half. Damn that bad karma! We should just stay the course, and continue having sub-par/mediocre seasons, good enough to just miss the playoffs but not bad enough for a top 5 pick.

    And when we do have a top five pick, how about we draft a college back up running back or an offensive tackle?

    No the bad karma is our team in general.

    And I like Tannehill, but right now I like Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan and Andrew Luck better. Hopefully Tannehill becomes better, but he is still a raw prospect. Anyone here who says they rather have those meaningless wins last year and Tannehill over losing out and getting this year's MVP and Rookie of the Year candidate Andrew Luck, is on drugs.

    ALRIGHT MIAMIII!!!!

    For me this is the ideal scenario for the following reasons

    1) We really need Consistency in the FO and this provides it. Likely had we gotten rid of Ireland it would have meant everyone including the HC,DC,OC would not have been retained by a new GM! I think we all can agree that its rare a new GM comes in and keeps the same pieces in the FO!

    2) I'm betting that Philbin and Sherman "assisting" with the draft instead of "Sporano and Deboll" will pay dividends.

    Because of #2 I don't understand why people say its the "same" people doing the drafting for this team when clearly it's not! I'm willing to give this "new" regime no matter how you slice it, this being their "first" season together two more season to turn things around. If after 3 solid years theirs no progress(which I doubt) then it's perfectly fine and the "right" time to go in another direction.

    This is year one!

    I don't care about the Colts, first of all. Not my team. Sure, they're having a nice little season (thanks in part to Luck), but come back to me when they actually have something to show for it. Until then, couldn't bother caring what the Colts are doing.

    Here's a neat fact for ya. From 2000 to 2003, Dave Wannstedt the acting General Manager of the Miami Dolphins drafted twice as many Pro Bowlers as Jeff Ireland has drafted from 2008 to 2011, and he did it while utilizing approximately one-third of the draft resources in terms of number of picks and value (according to the charts).

    As a matter of fairness and full disclosure, Mike Pouncey appears destined for Pro Bowls and that would bring Jeff Ireland's number of Pro Bowlers drafted to a tie with Dave Wannstedt. With 3x as many draft resources.

    Wow, when you have Wanny drafting better than you, then you can understand why the people on this board with half a brain want Ireland gone.Wanny push not one but 2 teams into the ground and yet, he drafted better than Ireland. And yet some people want Ireland back. GET REAL PEOPLE!!

    Ozzy rules!!

    I'm scrambling trying to think of pro bowlers Ireland drafted and it's... Long and....?

    If there's another one it's not coming to mind. Wannstedt would be Chris Chambers, right? And maybe Todd Wade?
