    The Ireland hate is getting REAAAAAAAAL OLD!

    we keep Jake Long who is injured - "Ireland is an idiot!"
    Marshall gets injured - "Ireland is an idiot"
    We trade away VD for a 2nd round pick who gets injured for the colts - "Ireland is an idiot"

    I swear I hear less bitching and moaning in a pre-school class.

    What rubs me raw about this is that Davis did come back this season and has been making plays, and WILL make plays in the playoffs. The guy is a top-echelon cover corner and, when healthy, can take out a WR for almost a whole game. Davis was and is significantly better than Sean Smith and when the ball is in the air, Vontae could actually locate it. I got mad that he was in poor condition but probably had motivation issues playing for that clown Sparano on a team going nowhere. Had we kept him he probably would've gotten back to top form by the 4th week and we probably win that game against Arizona and maybe some against Indy too (when Smith made one of the worst CB plays ever).

    Miami still has 9 total draft picks at this moment, but expect that to grow with a compensatory pick(s).
    For what? What high priced FAs did we lose??

    Danny, you might be correct with the facts but at least Ireland has been able to salvage something rather than getting nothing in return. Time to focus your energy on believing on the way forward. We're due some quality picks to make some real success in 2013.
    Ok, that's a fair response and yes, he did get something in return. I just wish he had not drafted him to begin with. The guy was trouble off the field just like his brother. As far as we're due to get some picks right, well, we have not drafted well in years. Not just Ireland but even before Ireland. We have not have a great draft since JJ's first year as HC.

    Ozzy rules!!

    I think cpmpensatory picks are based on FA we lose signed by other teams based on where we drafted them vs the FA we pick up, it's a formula not many know for sure but have a general idea of...

    We lost Henne - 2nd rounder and k. Langford - 3rd rounder...

    Gotta say I'd feel much more comfortable being part of the 10% than the 90, particularly when we're talking about nfl fans.

    I'm sure there's a whole lotta blame that can be assigned to the player that didn't live up the his potential, the coaches that couldn't coax it out of him, and the GM who failed on his psychoanalysis. But there's no denying the kid had talent and if things had gone the right way could be one of the best in the league.....and may still become one of the best.

    I don't see how anyone can criticize the Indy trade. To get a 2nd rounder for a guy that wasn't going to be re-signed and spent the majority of his time in street clothes.....what more could you ask for?
