we never once showed any interest in Wayne that was reported anywhere, but everyone knew we were going after Manning. Im not trying to pick a fight but if we wanted wayne we would have heard something. Its obvious we never really looked at wayne and decided to spend that kind of money on a guy that was one of the worst starting cbs during his time in carolina and thats why he was playing for cheap in az.

Ireland had a horrible free agency period last off-season, just let people say that to get it off their chest. Not everything needs to be turned into a debate.
It would be like if Jim drives his car into a river, John says "wow, Jim's a bad driver". Can't we just leave it at that?
Does Jack really need to chime in with "well, not necessarily, Jim had a few drinks first of all, plus the roads were bad and his car had bald tires. And he couldn't really afford to put on new tires after he spent all his money on booze, now could he?"
Actually, once he gets the insurance check for the car he ruined he'll have lots of money to pick out a brand new car. Some would argue around here that this proves Jim is actually a good driver...
I also dont want to hear about we didnt have money and all that crap because we carried over 5 million in cap with worthwhile players out there and we pursued manning (well tried since he woudnt even speak to our gm until Marino stepped in)
Another horrific free agent signing...

I love Brian Hartline, but I'd wait to see if he repeats his feats in 2013 before shelling out some large payday for him - and I believe that is what the Dolphins FO is trying to do as well.
Im pretty sure his agent gauged interest. We signed justin smiley minutes into free agency. Very little is unknown when it comes to teams interests nowadays. Miami showed no interest in Wayne. I could less about u comparing me to junc because you havent brought anything to table in this discussion. everyone was shocked when he resigned with Indy and its because teams did not show the interest they anticipated. Waiting around in free agency would probably have cost him money. we were too busy chasing a dream that didnt even want to talk to us as well as signing a cb that has never been a good starter over a season
