    Ross is a dumbass. We've got superbowl 50 coming to town and if we had a real GM there was a good chance Miami could be playing at home for the superbowl, with Ireland we have no shot at it.

    You're underselling Odrick. He is absolutely a starter on most teams in the league at DT or DE in a 3-4. Having said that, that was the absolute last position we needed at the time we drafted him.

    Reshad Jones had more interceptions, more tackles, more force fumbles and more sacks. I would not complain about not having Earl Thomas considering Jones maybe just as good if not better.

    Also Koa Misi and Odrick played very good. I think Odrick should be playing DT instead of DE. It's impossible to have all stars at every position. Also Chris Clemons had close to 100 tackles at the SS stop. We just need better corners and DE that can pass rush.

    In all fairness, we could have had both. Thomas at FS and Jones at SS would have been amazing.

    Let it go, lets see what happens this year, I can understand the Ireland hate, But Ross, Give him time, i think he will right the Ship. He has dished out the money, to keep the games on your local TV, He is improving the Stadium, He has stated he is willing to open his check book to get the right players. What else do u want out of a owner? I think Irelands days are numbered and i think he knows it.

    Ya but you could have had both. Jones is a SS and Thomas is a FS last time I checked. That would have been a great duo.

    Odrick is a starter on most teams and a good NFL player. Use of hyperbole doesn't bolster your argument. However, I agree with you that when given the opportunity, you draft a player that can be a difference maker. Earl Thomas should have been the pick, NOT Dez Bryant (as some have lamented).
    Willis should have been picked instead of Ginn.
    Like it or not, there are many GM's and coaches (Jimmy Johnson, Bill Bellicheck) that believe that higher number of picks increases your odds of finding good players. Arguments can be made for either philosophy and examples exist for both. Of course, hindsight is what fans do best, since it is not their job on the line.

    Reshad Jones is a pro bowl caliber player. He doesn't have the name recognition.
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

    I'll take a 5th rounder in Reshad Jones any day. Earl Thomas is a good player, but we got much more value out of Reshad Jones.
