    That would be such a great addition. Can you imagine Wallace paired with Bush and a better tight end. Our offense would be on the way up.

    True, but to Ireland's credit he made those moves knowing it weakened the team short-term, with the potential to have a huge offseason and draft. That put his job in a tenuous spot, but were moves his head coach wanted and the right moves for the team. Marshall had a huge year in Chicago, but you never know with him what he's going to do off the field. The guy is not team first. I always loved Davis until hardknocks came around and he looked lazy and unmotivated. No question, Ireland needs to hit big on the draft and offseason. We could be looking at a team stacked with talent entering the 2013 season.

    Lots of replies here and I can't read them all, perhaps someone has said ti already, but:

    This statement by Ireland, and everyone talking is all well and good. Better to be in the shape we are rather than what some teams are, BUT, in reality, there are teams in much better position than us financially and although we will have ample cap space, it doesn't really mean anything if the other teams want the player more than us.

    I'm not a young man anymore. I would really like to see the Dolphins in the Super Bowl at least one more time in my lifetime.[/QUOTE]

    Neither am I and swore I was not going to be a fan after Shula and Marinio left. I know churning the staff for the past 13 years plus has not produced the answer and the wins we seek. Like you I have been around for a long time and thats why I am backing Ireland more than most because we just have not had that guy really going back to the 70 Dolphins running our front office that got us to the SuperBowl back then. Last years draft and the accumualtion of ammo in FA money and picks this year that Ireland is repsonsible for has me opptomistic. Ireland may not be the answer but he is the best we have had going back to those 1970's years.

    Our problem now is that we have gone forward with Ireland still here. To cut ties with him now after we have moved forward with a new coaching staff is dicey. I think we just have to hope that Philbin has enough influence and can do a nice job. We have to hope Ireland was the most competent of the Parcells, Ireland, Sparano trio. Hopefully, Ireland has less Parcellsitis than Sparano does. The cornfed picks scream Parcells and Sparano. You know Sparano had a huge influence on the 2011 draft. It looks as though Philbin and his staff had a huge influence on last years draft. After all, we went QB in round 1. Then when we went cornfed with Martin, it was a guy who fit what Philbin wants to do on offense. I think that pick was part of phasing out Long for the future.

    I can see Ireland coming around. Lets see what happens. With all of the assets, if things dont get better next season it could be all over for not just Ireland, but even Philbin this early.

    Also, dont expect all 5 of those first draft picks to hit. No team hits on every pick in rounds 1-3. I think it would be reasonable to expect 2 or 3 solid players. With 5 picks, I would hope at least one of them is an all pro caliber player. If we make the right moves there is no reason we shouldnt win more games next season. A lot is going to fall on Tannehill though. If he dosent play better next season, it isnt going to mean much if we get better players on offense. He has to step up. If he dosent, it could cost a lot of people their jobs.


    I agree with all of what is posted above and next year is not going to break the phins if Ireland is still not the answer. If he performs like he has the past 3 years with the cap money we have and picks we have we will be in better shape next year roster wise than this year. Maybe not good enough and good enough for Ireland to keep his job but their will be enough talent on this roster that if the next GM is as good as everyone hopes we will be in good shape quick. We have more talent on this roster than Ireland haters want to admit.

    I dont get this logic that its not a big deal if Ireland doesnt do well next year. We had cap space before he got here, and he ate up that cap space and to some degree finally cleaned up his mess. And the whole ireland haters dont admit talent. Every team in the nfl has some talent. Cleveland is horrible but I could name alot of talented guys on that roster. Every year I keep hearing about how much talent we got and that talent averages about 7-9 in record. I have got to no choice that we will Irleand for another year but im not playing some stupid card well maybe he is coming around. You know maybe he will but I am going to judge Ireland on his total body of work here and its far from good and we have now thrown away 5 more years of the franchise with him at the helm. So yea I guess for a few people its cool to rationlize that people that hate Ireland as Gm has no logical reason to do this and are caught up in the past(last time I checked Ireland had the grand role as general manager that has made up the last 5 years of this past) The dolphins were here before the idiot known as Ireland and will be here after he graciously gets fired but Im tired of reading water with him as gm. There should have been some accountability with him and Ross should have dealt with it but hell he is just here to look good owning a team its the vogue thing. Here is a hint attendance is not down because you have done the right things.So personally I will hope somehow Ireland gets lucky and we do better but I am more hopeful of the day we finally rid this team of the last of Parcells garbage.
    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.

    Ireland has no clue he has no clue, that's the biggest problem with him.

    His career comes down to this offseason, let's see what kind of meddle the weasel has.
