    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.

    Its amusing, because W-L records are usually attributed to coaches. Only on this forum is the GM held accountable for W-L records. You would never know that Parcells was head honcho of this team during JI's 1st couple of yrs here and you would never know that Sparano was the HC brought in by BP. Its all on Ireland.
    “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.”

    Yeah you were right it was 11-5 the first season he was here maybe your too old and cannot remember that far back anymore. Anyway the worst 4 year stretch was just prior to his arrival 1-15, 6-1O, 9-7 and 4-12. So simple math that equals 20 -44
