    Jeff's CFL "fool's gold" free agents

    If you were in Canada while Wake was tearing it up you will have to admit Wake was a no-brainer find (IT WAS UNUSUAL TO SEE THIS CALIBRE OF DEFENDER IN THE CFL)

    Even Brandon Browner a very good CFL all star at the time was not being considered for MVP status like Wake

    So for the love of the game JEFF - WORK ON THE DRAFT! - these spotty CFLers are a waste of time!!!!

    Stop churning the bottom 5 players when the top 40 could all see upgrades (many are average at best)

    Should we complie a list of Jeff's CFL "fool's gold" free agents? While the draft's sailed by Jeff Ireland and MIA scouts - the "real" gold sailed by?

    I mean congrats on Thigpen but seriously the latter rounds of the draft sailed right by you dude - some would argue the first day of the draft sailed by you the past 2 years - after Pouncey and Tannehill you got roasted

    I am not a proponent or hater just not liking the waste of time direction - the CFL is generally a dead end to build a team of play-makers on both side of the ball
    Pastor stands up in Church from the pulpit and asks the congregation if they know what the resurrection is about? Small child in a pew puts his hands up and would like to answer, pastor asks the child to answer, Boy says "If the resurrection persists over 4 hours you have to call a doctor"

    It isnt the draft or free agency or the CFL by looking at all 3 he is doing his job. Do you think its Ireland who personally evaluates every player?

    Who cares? The CFL has a few players to discover. Good for him.

    I think as the nfl continues to go no huddle, spread, passing offense it only makes sense to look at guys from the CFL. Really at this time of year it hurts nothing, bowl games are pretty much over except the BCS Championship and I am pretty sure those rosters have been well scouted. I am the biggest Ireland basher and even I have no problem looking at CFL guys right now

    Wow another fan who buys into the socialist approach let's just blame one guy for everything. There is Jones FS, Clemons, Hartline WR, Bess WR, Martin OL, Smith CB, Carrol, Miller RB, Mathews WR, Jones TE, Jerry OL, Vernon DE, MSI LB, DT RB, Lane K and Carp K. These are just some of your drafted and undrafted college players that Ireland has acquired primairilynin the past 3 years that played then majority of the snaps this year that were NOT chosen in the first round.

    Thanks I just puked in my mouth - WE HAVE A BAD TEAM! Stop rubbing it in - WHY MUST YOU GUYS KEEP REMINDING ME!!

    So yes Ireland got owned in rounds 2-7 the past to years

    And that TE JONES is just amazing

    As are most of these guys outside of Martin

    (and when I write Jeff it is obvious that HE alone is responsible for his staff)

    I believe Hartline,Clemons,Bess,Smith,Jerry,Jones,Misi,Carroll,Carpenter were all drafted/signed while Parcells was still in charge
    that leaves Martin who was terrible this season,Vernon who hardly played,Lane who may have played himself out of Miami left on your list.

    If we have to hang our collective hats and be proud of Lane,Martin and Vernon we have major problems

    The draft is a ways off what do you want him to do hibernate until then. He is doing what every other GM in the league is doing............his job.

    Begs the question: Is Buttchez good enough to at least carry a clipboard in the CFL?
