I find it disconcerting the number of posters in this thread [and the number of people in our front office if Ross's public statement is to be believed] who apparently feel there is no hope for the Dolphins until Brady retires. What ever happened to hoping that your team could improve itself and become competitive with the best in the league? I know we're behind the eight-ball here with Ireland as GM, but that still shouldn't be reason to give up all hope. Let's aspire to becoming good enough to beat the Pats and Brady at their best. That will be a Dolphins team of which I will be extremely proud.
