    Is Ireland incapable of identifying explosive players?

    someone please explain why Belichick is so good at being a GM and why Ireland isn't?

    Belichick has to practice, evaluate players, hold team meetings, hold position meetings, regulate the roster/injuries, meet with coaches & trainers, deal with the owner and the media, gameplan, then travel & coach games each week.

    Ireland… just GM's.

    Patriots are kickin ass and takin names.

    Dolphins are getting their ass kicked and called names.

    and everyone thinks Ross/Ireland are on par with Kraft/Belichick?

    South Florida is a fool's paradise.

    Belichick isn't a good GM. He has had more failures in recent years than Ireland. Most of his FA acquisitions have been spectacular failures in recent years. The difference is that they still win so no one cares about the failures. A hall of fame QB will mask a lot of deficiencies in talent acquisition. Without Brady, Belichick would have been run out of town in recent years because of his poor performance as a GM.

    When faced with the choice between Daniel Thomas and Demarco Murray he chose Thomas. He chose Egnew over Hilton as a potential playmaker in our passing game. Yes, he has problems identifying playmakers.


    Those are perfect examples of why Ireland (Ball Boy/Placekicker) Needs to Go. The Dolphins are not going anywhere, again until this Loser is Gone. Daniel Thomas and Egnew would not even be on a Good Teams Roster. Hence we are not a Good Team man.
    I really don't know what to make of this. If Demarco Murray was a Dolphin you'd be blasting Ireland for drafting a guy who had a litany of injuries in college and has only played in 50% of the games in his NFL career.

    Nope. I can guarantee I would not have criticized a Demarco Murray pick. I was hoping on draft day that Ireland was targeting him but of course no he moved up for DT. Demarco's susceptibility to injury has been a major negative, but he is an explosive playmaker at the RB position and his playing 50% of games would still outproduce anyone else on our offense.

    DId you follow the post draft PC during that year?

    When we drafted him Ireland said fans wanted speed and were upset we hadn't added any and well now we have. He has big time speed that should increase our overal team speed.

    That **** thought 1 guy, drafted in round 4 was a game breaker. Thats his issue even as a GM this year he will literally add 1 WR. He doesn't believe in WR talent and doens't know how to find WR talent.

    Thats the scariest part man.

    Our offense was going to consist of Gerrard, Thomas, Fasano, Ocho, and NaNaee.

    Are you kidding me here? Wow I think my turkedy day homies only football tournament team wouldn't pick any of those guys up to form a team.

    Do you notice one common theme there on that list? SLOW, UNATHLETIC, and NON PERFORMERS only METRICS.

    I for one am tired of the dolphins drafting projects and "acorns" with potential. Why can't Ireland draft people who are naturally talented at their position instead of the so called "potential" factor. A rock has potential when it starts moving to do great damage, but until something causes that rock to move, it's only potential. I think he made the same decision with Tannehill. A project at the most important position. An acorn among oak trees.
