    To be fair they didn't have to say anything or go into detail about the Dolphins current state. You can't deny though that having a young quarterback already in place, $45+ million in cap space and 9 draft picks(5 in the top 82) is a good position to be in this offseason.

    I don't have to know anything to know one GM isn't going to rip another one to the press. If you know they are just going to say good things then they aren't really saying anything at all.

    It is a wonderful place to be if you can trust the person who is spending the money and making the picks. If the person who is spending the money and making the picks gets this wrong, they set franchise back at least five years. And that is why the divisions among Dolphin fans about Ireland are so strong. Based on his five years history as the Dolphins General Manager, some trust him to make these picks, others do not. And there is ammunition on both sides of the argument. For each Cameron Wake and Mike Pouncey on the positive side of the ledger there is also the Pat White, Patrick Turner and Michael Egnew disasters on the negative.

    No one would care about any of this if the downside of failure wasn't so high.

    ^That's so depressing your last line...So true too, man a horrible free agency/draft would set us back for a second straight decade of irrelevance.

    I dont remember who it was, im pretty sure it was ckparrothead, that said they had firsthand knowledge that the Ravens front office doesn't think too highly of Ireland in terms of GM competency. Take that for what it's worth.

    I refuse to concede that because A.) his contract said he had final say and B.) he cashed his paychecks. Both of those things mean he is responsible.
