    If the Fins turn this thing around, Ireland haters won't admit to being wrong but distribute credit elsewhere (players, coaches etc...) and continue to reminisce on his failures. Nobody likes to admit they are wrong.

    Personally I don't like or hate him, I base my opinion on him more so on his latest work then I do in the beginning. If he was stuck on the old philosophy I'd be worried, but I think he's proven, at least in his last draft he's willing to change his ways.
    I want Ireland to succeed more than anything. Do you think I really want Ireland to fail to prove my opinion of him? That's absurd. It's not my fault in his 5 years he's been mediocre at best as a GM. The records speak for themselves. It seems Ireland supporters blame everyone (Parcells, Sparano, the fans) for Ireland's failures except Ireland himself. I give him credit for the positive things he's done, but if some of those things are that he found Wake and Bess, then that means he contributed in the 08-10 drafts as well. Ireland supporters claim Parcells was the one in charge, so he shouldn't get credit for finding those hidden gems then. Point is, he's been here for 5 years and has a poor track record. The team has had 4 losing seasons in a row (the worst in 40 years), and people should expect the fans to be optimistic with Ireland having all these picks and cap space?

    I want the Dolphins to win. I want him to succeed.

    Ireland shares the blame for this teams failures with everybody else involved. MOST Ireland haters look at things very black and white. It's all Irelands fault, not the coaches involved or players (Dan Carpenter missing 3 game wining FG's, anyone)... Ireland doesn't get a pass for this team going 7-9 6-10 the last 4 years, but he certainly shouldnt get ALL the blame, like everybody (Ireland haters in general) on here tend to do.

    We have found "starters" who would be SECOND-STRING on most teams. We consistently ignore the good players and draft mediocre players a round or 2 ahead of their intrinsic value.

    It is perfectly legitimate to judge ireland based on how many players he has PASSED ON that are starting, contributing and STARRING for other franchises. That is a LONG and embarrassing list.

    Tannehill came to us because of Ross and Philbin. Stephen Ross could have drafted Tannehill all by himself, he didn't need ireland's help. Left to himself, ireland would have gone for cornfed wannabes like always.
    Ryan Tannehill. Ah, what a relief. Life is good.

    I by no means blame him for everything, but his supporters excuse him from everything. The point is, he's been the GM for 5 years now. Yes Sparano was a mediocre coach at best, and Parcells didn't give a ****, but Ireland is still the GM of the team. Even when Ireland has been by himself, he has not drafted play makers. Do we blame Philbin more for drafting a player like Egnew and not getting TY Hilton? I don't see any play makers on this team that were drafted; I have no reason to believe Ireland will all of a sudden hit on every stud in the draft. I mean I've seen many people on here call for players like Earl Thomas, Jimmy Graham, Hakeem Nicks, and so on. Why does Ireland keep passing on these guys?

    Either way, this is his last chance. No more inactive Egnews, Daniel Thomases, Pat Whites, Sean Smiths, and so on.... I want some game changers.

    High praise from the bottom feeders. I would welcome those comments from the GM's from SF, NE, GB, NO...
    What good is having so many draft picks when we waste them on draft day, or trade the players a few years later.
    We have not had that one draft that transforms a team from a loser to a winner with the best players from each round.
    That always eludes Jeff Ireland.

    Yes exactly. You're not going to win football games if you are trading your first round pick for a 2nd round pick a few years later. Ireland has a done a pretty good job at finding starters in the draft, but he has consistently missed on the studs in each rounds. He's had several opportunities to get these guys too. Many people on Finheaven call for players like Earl Thomas and Jimmy Graham, but for some reason Ireland continues to whiff on these guys.

    Yes we will. We won 6 games with Vonate Davis and his bum hamstring last year. We won 7 games without him this year. And we have an extra draft pick.

    You make a good argument here, but the point is, there were better players out there that we could have drafted instead of Davis that many people called for. The fact that you have to trade him away after only a few years is not a good strategy for success. You say "and his bum hamstring," so I assume your opinion is not that high on Davis. Clay Matthews is one of the faces of GB and an elite LB. Nicks is a play maker for the SB winning Giants. Davis was only a solid starter for us.

    I know a debate about Ireland with you will go all day, but Ireland has done a pretty good job at finding starters, but he keeps missing on the game changers. This is his last chance to find these guys.
