    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.
    You made the request, why don't you look it up since you're so intent on telling us how "Ireland sucks" a thousand times. He's our damn GM whether you or I like it or not...what happened his first 3-4 years is all a moot point now. It's all about now and beyond with Jeff. He's got the resources to turn this team into a playoff team. If he doesn't get it done this year with what he has to work with, he's gone. Then you can go throw the biggest party in Miami and we won't have to put up with the "Fire Ireland" threads and posts every hour. It's a win win.
    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.

    If you look at the actual transcript of Ireland's remarks you will find that local media failed to mention Ireland's repetition of his normal bromides about "building the team from the inside out", "choosing players based upon certain size parameters" (rather than actual talent), and stating that first year busts like Egnew have a great future. There really isn't anything new here other than a recognition that our wide receivers didn't score touchdowns and everyone is tired of the W-L history. A leopard can't change his spots and Ireland can't change the way he picks players.

    And who the hell is content with .500 or losing football??? This is some of the the biggest load of BS I read on these forums. Just because someone chooses to "support" Ireland or anyone else on this team for that matter, doesn't mean they're content with losing football. I sure as hell am not. 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.

    Pretty sure my first post on this thread already stated that. And I don't need to look it up I know Ireland has done nothing. The rest of you Irelanders don't.

    I don't like Ireland, and I think he should be replaced.

    That being said, I realize he does have us in a pretty desirable position cap/picks wise and he will have the opportunity to see it through. The Dolphins can be losers next year and although many people won't be satisfied with that (including myself) . . . I can give Jeff Ireland a break if he just does his best by getting top notch players down here and make this team and enjoyable one to watch again. Sure we all enjoy the Dolphins on Sundays, we are hardcore fans . . . but lets be honest, they are boring as hell at times and I'm just sick and tired of it. Jeff, do your job and hit on your draft picks and bring in some solid free agents and lets get that damn stadium rocking again.

    The franchise being set back 5 years is a win-win?

    Irelanders. That's cute. Must've been waiting a while to use that one, eh?

    To summarize the situation, our owner didn't consider himself the owner until very recently, and our general manager didn't think he was expected to do anything.
