Today's playoff game between San Francisco and Atlanta highlights two of the most important talent acquisition failures of the Ireland era:

a. The epic fiasco of the failed attempt to hire Jim Harbaugh as our head coach.
b. The disastrous decision to choose Jake Long instead of Matt Ryan as the first overall pick in the draft.

As you sit down to watch today's game, consider these two talent acquisition failures along with our four consecutive losing seasons and ask yourself where would the Dolphins be if we had gotten either of these two situations right.
