    Bucs and Rams GM impressed with Ireland and Dolphins

    Ireland continues to take heat from many Dolphins fans who want him fired after four straight seasons missing the playoffs. But many inside the NFL are impressed with Ireland’s “vision” for this offseason and how well he has set up the Dolphins for future success.

    The Dolphins “have a plethora of really good draft picks,” Tampa Bay GM Mark Dominik said — nine overall, including the 12th overall pick and five in the top 84. Ireland acquired an extra second-round pick in trading Vontae Davis, and an extra third-rounder in trading receiver Brandon Marshall.

    “To be able to continue to build that thing in the right direction has got to be exciting for Dolphins fans,” Dominik said.
    One fan of Ireland’s philosophy is Rams GMLes Snead, who is building his team in a similar fashion. Snead traded the No. 2 pick last year to Washington, then traded the No. 6 pick to Dallas, and emerged from the draft with 10 new rookies (five in the first 65 picks) and promising players in DT Michael Brockers, CBs Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson and WR Chris Givens.

    “At the end of the day we got two starters instead of one. You do the math,” Snead said. “I think the arrow is pointing up in Miami, for sure.”
    Pat Kirwin, a longtime scout and the Jets’ salary cap manager for most of the 1990s, said the Dolphins have done the right thing this offseason by staying the course with Ireland and coach Joe

    “Jeff’s a level-headed guy, works hard, has a vision,” said Kirwin, now with SiriusXM. “The owner did a nice job of not reacting emotionally to the situation and firing Jeff.”

    I think "7 - 9, 7 - 9, 6 - 10, 7 - 9" is the answer to most Ireland related threads. However, it is a pain to type. I would like to propose that we shorten this phrase to either "scoreboard" or "W-L record". It conveys the same information in fewer keystrokes.

    Good for them. He can go and work up there after he gets fired.

    Coaches stick by coaches, players stick by players, and GM's stick by GM's....bet you can't find one GM that says anything bad about Jeff. They are all in the same club and want to protect each others jobs.

    I just hope we grab some playmakers with a few of our 5 picks in the first 84.

    New coach, new QB

    moving forward.

    Not sure Ireland haters will be around once we become successful. Jeff Ireland is all about "the prostitute"
