    Are you really complaining that Ireland didn't broadcast his offseason plan to the entire NFL? And I'm sure the 31 other teams never tell lies when talking about their offseason plans. Like him or hate him, I don't see how him being purposely vague about how he plans to upgrade the roster is a bad thing. My god, I feel like rationality has left the world...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    No, I am not complaining that he lied. I am complaining that the majority of the posters in this thread are acting like he is telling the truth. Similar to Pavlov's dogs.

    Smells like a smoke screen to me. Eifert or Ertz come on down.

    Can't wait to see what big names bring their talents to South Beach next season. Time to turn this into a winner again.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

One of Parcells best attributes was the capacity to admit a draft mistake in year 1 rather than live in hope that he would be a contributor. Pat White and Patrick Turner (the 2 Patsies), were both axed after a year because they were admitted draft errors. While it would be great if Egnew comes good, Ireland should be open to the possibility that Egnew was a draft mistake and may need to be cut.

    Because he is an investment, yes maybe a poor one, but if there's any hope of getting anything out of him it would Not be achieved by tearing him down. Ireland makes a good point where he says not all prospects develop at the same rate. I know everyone's disappointed that he did not work out this year, but he does have some skills. Blocking may never be one of them, but he can move like the wide receiver and he can catch the ball there may be a place for him especially if the offense of line can be improved. But again Ireland and the team is not served well by publicly tearing this kid down and humiliating him. It might make you feel better, but it would destroy any chance of getting any worth from their investment. Would that make any sense to you?
