The issue here is that Jeff Ireland simply hasn't addressed the wide receiver position, at all. He waited until the 6th round in the draft to try to address it, and his big free agent solutions were Chad Johnson (awful last year with Brady throwing him the ball) and Legedu Naanee (just plain awful).
It is bizarre to me that anyone can rabidly defend the job that this man is doing at this point.
"Society became divided into camps in which no man trusted his fellow. To put an end to this, there was neither promise to be depended upon, nor oath that could command respect; but all parties dwelling rather in their calculation upon the hopelessness of a permanent state of things, were more intent upon self-defence than capable of confidence." - Thucydides, probably predicting the rise of internet message boards

ps- the 2011 draft looks to be a disaster considering miami has so many holes. The Only guy worth a damn is Pouncey from that entire draft... and of course ireland had to select that position at the HIGHEST in that positions HISTORY to do it. lol
Jeff Ireland is the new Upgrayedd..Double D for a double dose of dismal drafts..
"So I throw it up there?" "No! See that guy Wallace deep in the endzone? Him!"
Misi >>>>> Gronkowski (the guy I was screaming for at that pick on FH during draft day)
Ireland killed me on that one. Especially when he resigned that slow stiff Fasano a year later and his precious 300 yards for the season. lol
Ireland has already proven that he can have completely horrendous offseasons, I don't want to give him an opportunity to have more. My biggest fear is he does just enough to save his job again next year which results in us having nothing to show for our good head coach and QB 5-10 years down the road.
I've been satisfied by Ireland's job overrall... He's put himself in a great position this year to make big things for the team.
When he thought he needed a WR he went out there and got Brandon Marshall, when we needed a spark on offence and a running back, he went out there and got Reggie Bush, I'm excited to see what he's got under his sleeve this time
