Enough with the ignorant Acorn cracks and whining about CFL tryouts. You're trying so hard to make something out of nothing. You're embarrassing yourself
    You go ahead and misquote

    What's more embarrassing our recent Drafts, our consitent PO appearances our or crying about our lack therof?

    If you are going to the CFL at lesat bring out the right guys - there are only a couple who stand out from the rest and it isn't that often - but you ninnies don't watch the CFL
    C. Patterson gets indefinitely suspended for "not showing up" and Buttfumble got a raise for "not showing up" - go figure how the JESTS world works?

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.
    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

    Also as a Canadian (who now lives back in Toronto) you're hilariously wrong. There are always 1 or 2 guys who blow up like Wake did and amount to jack ****. If it was such a no brainer why weren't teams jumping at signing Wake? Explain that to me.

    Stop pretending you are speaking with any sort of authority on this subject. Jeff Ireland is doing his job by leaving NO stone unturned. If he didn't sign a bunch of FAs from the CFL youd probably be blasting him for not BEING THOROUGH and then we'd be in a perpetual cycle of you complaining about anything and everything the man does.

    The fact that Ireland has found two IMPACT PLAYERS (Thigpen & Wake) from the CFL deserves some commendation, don't you think?

    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
    Actually Gadsden and Parmalee were both parts of playoff teams with Marino and as I said found in the rough. Regardless of Tom Brady or not Miami was in the playoffs, hands down, they would have been in the playoffs wither way. It isn't like Miami swept the Pats in 2008, the series was split, and even with Brady Miami has split their fair share of series. 10-6 still got Miami in the playoffs that year, 11-5 won the division w/o Brady.

    So Bess was indeed also part of a playoff team and the only ones who were not are Wake and Thigpen. No Obama isn't responsible for Bush but they both are responsible for the same thing, the USA. The same can be said about any NFL GM, does he control what he inherits from the prior GM, no but he damn sure can use it to build from.

    I don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.
    Peace and Humptiness Forever

    I say look at the arena league and the CFL....but as far as signing guys as free agents from those sources, your initial buy should be considered bottom 10% of the roster.

    What did I misquote you on? I'll answer for you. Nothing. You have cried for a few days now about Ireland bringing in CFL guys for tryouts and asked why he's wasting his time with it. Now that the board hasn't jumped on your failed attempt to start another Ireland bashing thread you've changed it to whining about his draft. If you wanted to bash Ireland find one of the other many threads to do so. You thought you found another things to complain about, that everyone else would jump on but you failed. Stop while you're behind

    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.
    Omg stop! Miami's season is over, just like 24 other teams. So what, he's giving guys tryouts and "churning" the bottom 5 of the roster. So are the rest of the NFL. Free agency doesn't begin for 2 months. The draft in over 3. So let me make this easy on you, he can't sign any of the guys that hit the market once this season ends. He can't decide to turn in his draft card for the 12th pick so he's doing what he can. Scouting. The includes the CFL. Why is this so difficult for you to understand?

    I am no authority - proof is in the pudding - how long is he are you going to live off the Wake signing? No stone unturned? How about work the draft and get some players worth their weight
