    Our best D player (Team MVP) and our best ST player come out of the CFL ....... and someone is upset that we are looking at a few more CFLers? Doesn't make sense to me .................. remember Mark Dixon? Chuckie K bad in the day? I think maybe we should be looking at a few more CFLers.

    Frankly no VK - he cannot make that throw and the extra Defender will just further confuse him - the PA pass is his bread and butter and the run is not entirely non-existent but it isn't used as much with one less down - less room for error.

    I mean if you don't string some throwing first downs together it becomes a punting league

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)

    Marcus Thigpen? Marcus THigpen? CHURN CHURN CHURN the bottom

    CHAD OWENS CHAD OWENS look him up, watch some footage, even the Jets Tannebaum was on the hunt for Owens

    I thought this was what a GM was supposed to do sign prospects like CHAD OWENS not guys who can't get on the field like WATT - (a practice player in the CFL) I wish have of you spent a little time looking into these stiffs that we are bringing into camp.

    Yes, Cam Wake was a great find by Ireland. Thigpen was another great find. He's relatively cheap and is currently one of the best return men in the NFL. As far as I can tell, he has a better percentage finding playmakers in Canada than he does through the draft, and yet here we are. He's doing his job, and he's finding good talent in Canada. There's no reason anybody should complain about him scouting Canadian talent because they are making this team better.

    Wake was a no brainer - A few of us told you all this from the moment he was signed - some things are just that obvious

    Why didn't he get Owens in camp why did we get Thigpen who is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better

    Why do we churn the bottom 5 - and not adress the CORE through the draft

    We get stomped in the draft it is as old as the people who defend the CFL product

    Why Why Why

    Why would you blast a guy for bringing in people to work out? CFL or not what's the difference? What harm can come out of working any and all players out?

    Eveyone acts like Jeff is flying all gods creation to evaluate all these players himself........naaaaa, wrong answer this is what all these guys get paid to do:


    Assistant General Manager Brian Gaine
    Director of College Scouting Chris Grier
    Assistant Director of Pro Scouting Chris Shea
    Manager of Football Administration Ryan Herman
    College Scouts Ron Brockington
    Adam Engroff
    Anthony Hunt
    Ron Labadie
    Mike Murphy
    Joe Schoen
    Matt Winston
    Pro Scouts Adam Howe
    Nate Sullivan
    Scouting Assistants Chris Buford,
    Cody Rager
    Executive Assistant/Football Operations Annie Berger
    Irma Gonzalez

    So let them bring 100 more CFL players if we find one more Wake or Thigpen I'm all for it. Cheap and productive, Orande Gadsden came out of the Areana League for Miami in the 90's, Bernie Parmalee was UDFA and a UPS driver when he was brought in. Bess was a UDFA. I mean blast the guy all you want it isn't like he is trading picks and players away just to do it, there have been far far wrose GM's to take office here in Miami than Jeff Ireland.

    I am not a J Ireland hater -

    Can't do it alone agreed

    The last time we were in the POS was only because Brady was injured - if my memory serves me correct prior to that appearance we were bombed by JAX - a long long long long time ago - THEREFORE all those players listed do NOTHING for me unless we are perrenially in the PO HUNT!!

    Is Jeff resp for the entire landscape of the team? Is Obama responsible for George Bush's desicions?

    He is responsible NOW!

    And yes Ireland is responsible for all those listed - no??? Is he yes, or no? Jeff's success is predicated on HIS people

    If the shelf is bare better get a better CFL scout better get a better NCAA scout to boot as well

    More than the bottom 5 of the roster needs to go -

    I am 44 and FED up with mising on the draft (the CFL is a crap shoot of wasted time) every now and again something sticks - Wake was special he is not the general rule = people don't realize that prior B Browner the last CFLer to have a starting role on an NFL Defense was Bennie Thompson of KC

    If you can't stand the kitchen the heck out - maybe Gaine is better - someone has to stand and be counted
