    Hopefully "all in" doesn't mean waiting until the 4th round to draft a receiver.lol

We've got to build on what we have, not keep rehashing the mistakes of past Miami Dolphins seasons. I can admit Ireland and the rest of the team has made it's fair share of mistakes, but does bringing them up every other thread accomplish anything? I'm looking forward what Ross, Ireland, Philbin and the team can do to improve the team next season...not what happened 2....3...five years ago.
    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.

I've just come to the realization that complaining about Ireland all day isn't going to change anything about the team or who runs it.
    Hey...I agree with you,that nobody should be content with .500/below results.I'm sure as Hell not.It pisses me off.But two things have been a constant.Our below par results.....and Ireland at the helm.It's like he's not held accountable for anything.He keeps getting a free-pass.He's also one of the last pieces left from a horribly failed Parcells experiment.I'm fine with anybody/everybody disagreeing with me.I'm just sick of losing.....and Ross keeps letting his stooge run things.

    I'm glad he's taking total responsibility for this offseason. I don't hate or like Ireland because of the transition of personnel decisions that was after 2010. I see he's picked up and retained a few awesome players (Jones, Pouncey, Tannehill, Solai) and he's made some dumb moves here and there (Artis Hicks, Richard Marshall, Vontae Davis, Michael Egnew). That's fine with me, you don't hit 100% in the NFL. As long as he's man enough to take the blame for this upcoming offseason I respect the guy and wish him, the team, and all his decisions well.

    It's not rocket science, dude. Ever since the Tuna left, Ireland obviously has been making his moves for a year like this. Almost 50 million in cap space and so many top draft picks to use. So many ppl just act like when the Tuna was here, he wasn't essentially the acting GM.

    As a GM you need more hits then misses and Ireland obviously has had more misses.
    Please God, let me see 1 Dolphins Superbowl victory before I die.

    If we're not competing for the division title in Week 16, then he has ****ed us again.

    The ****ing Colts had a worst record than us, they looked pitiful on all three phases of the game, and they not only went to the playoffs after one offseason, but are now back to taking over their division AGAIN.

    I have a request, someone list me significant moves the GOAT GM Jeff Ireland has done to improve our franchise and please, compare that list to Grigson's one offseason list.

    I love this false narrative that Ireland "has" to hit this offseason or he's in real trouble.

    Wheres the proof for that attitude? From all the evidence we have, the guy is completely bulletproof. Jerry Jones has less job security than Ireland. I have my sig set to Ross declaring his expectations of making the playoffs. A losing season later, Ross is still convinced everything is acceptable.

    I have every expectation of reading this article again a year from now. Granted, the year will change and the free agent bust example will be different, but hey this time Ireland is in real trouble because he cant blame it on....ugh....well, im sure someone will be thrown under the bus.

    The Colts are a paper tiger, just like Miami in 2008. We thought we were on the upswing too and look what happened? Best of luck to them getting those lucky bounces again.

    Seriously, you guys are getting so repetitive it's driving me nuts. JUST STOP. WAIT IT OUT. WE HAVE HIM FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER YEAR.
