    Disagree college free agents u pick with no draft picks is like finding free money you look for it but you don't count on it happening much

    Phintim the issue is that Dlockz refuses to give Ireland any credit, ever.

    Honestly this agenda posting is making this forum boring. It's the same argument every day

    Many years ago the NFL used to go twelve or thirteen rounds in the draft. Finding UDFAs now is no different from hitting on a draft pick in rounds eight to thirteen back then. It didn't happen often, but it did happen enough that teams did the work to thoroughly research those players. To the extent that Ireland has hit in UFDAs I give him credit. It doesn't make up for his misses in rounds 1-3, but he does seem to have some talent in finding an acorn every now and then.

    Everything Ross said works for me. Anyone who complains need to take it down a notch.

    He hasn't made a real commitment? You realize he only makes money if the fans are happy, right?

    I really don't know why fans keep saying that Ross isn't committed to winning or doesn't want to spend money. No truth to that at all. In fact, Ross had spent the most money in player acquisitions over a two year period then any owner in the NFL. Ross wants to win and he has proven he will spend anything.

    Maybe because we are intimately familiar with Jeff Luria. There are ways for an owner to make money in the NFL without putting a winning team on the field. The Lions are a prime example.

    OK, he's spent money. Where's the results? 7-9, 6-10, 7-9 so far. Sure looks like his plan has worked wonders for the only metric that counts, wins and losses.

    Ross, Ireland, and Philbin know Tannehill can't succeed with these wide receivers. They also know a rookie likely won't make the immediate impact you're looking for. That's why Jennings will be a Dolphin if/when he hits the open market. He knows the offense and knows how to work. In fact, he'll speed up the development of any rookies they draft. The real question for me is Wallace. Personally, I think there is a place for him on this team, however, I can see where he would drive Philbin nuts. That is the situation that interests me. I'd be shocked if Jennings isn't a Dolphins if he makes the open market.

    Nobody. Goldson takes some horrible angles every game, just makes it up with a few INTs here and there.

    Which Clemons doesn't. I was hoping for the draft, though.
