    It's a freaking hamster wheel.
    Maybe we'll get lucky and this year it will be a hamster tunnel or chute, lol.

    Was it really actually good though, or just good compared to the **** drafts he produced the years prior? There is a difference. In any event, it is too early to just put a check in the "good" column for last year's draft and act like it is a done deal. It looks decent as of right now but that could change drastically depending on what Tannehill, Miller, Martin, and Vernon do in the next few years. All of those guys are far from being considered locks to be upper echelon players for years to come at this point. People loved the 2008 draft at one time, too. I find it a bit comical that you are the first one to always implore people to take a wait and see approach yet you are so quick to call last year's draft class good. We just don't know yet and really, you can't have it both ways.

    Yup, in Feb 2009 most were calling the 2008 draft a homerun, same thing happened in Feb 2010 in regards to the 2009 draft.

    I just hope that Ireland's "clear vision" does not put us on the long road to the Super Bowl. The fans want to win now! Between two to four years and no more. We've been waiting way too long Mr. Ireland. Way, way too long.

    So clean your glasses well; make those lenses shine with the foresight that will build and shape (finally!) us into Super Bowl contenders...not today, not tomorrow, but yesterday!

    (And listen to what Philbin has to say in the war room for he is a football man and not a suit sitting behind a desk all day eating crap; listen to your fans here on FH while your at it - your fans, the short-in-patient fan base who deserve a winner - a team to be proud of...champions!)

    We are counting on you to make the right moves. Do it right this time. Do NOT screw this one up.

    Who's with me?

    The challenge is prioritizing where the big money is spent. Many of the expensive free agents recruited in JI's reign have been busts. This is a fascinating time to be a Dolphin fan, let's see what he gets.

    What else is he suppose to say?

    "we don't really have a plan, but we can't wait to trade up for the next Daniel thomas and draft the next play maker no one has ever heard of in Clyde gates."
