Now we've made the same mistake. Its inexcusable that we busted on the entire '08 draft, despite picking at the top of every round and having 4 picks in the first 3 rounds. We had 4 picks in the first 3 rounds in '09 and busted on 3 of those 4 players, with Sean Smith walking out the door. We had 4 picks in the first 3 rounds this past year and one is already looking to be a bust. But hey, we have 5 picks in the first 3 rounds this year, that extra pick makes all the difference! We are on the way up!!1!
We are only as good as our front office is. For all hilarious defense of Ireland, i have never heard anyone suggest he will be a special general manager. The next Ron Wolf or Ozzie Newsome. Why have we given this many chances to a guy who's upside is "good"?

Are you guys still trying to convince people of something with no new evidence? like if you keep saying it then you will magically convince all of Finheaven that they have all been uniformed for 5 years? Yes, everyone should have listened to you because you have an unprecedented insight into a situation that nobody else could possibly have. You should pat yourself on the back and revel in how cool you were when you told everyone they were wrong on the internet.
Keep on fighting the good fight....
No one drafted in the past five years by this regime has been resigned. No one. With Sean Smith seemingly headed out the door and the odds on Hartline resigning perhaps even, perhaps less, it looks as though that streak (or **** stain, depending on how you look at it) might very well continue.
Letting players you've drafted to fill holes leave in free agency because they're not good enough to resign and then drafting new players to fill those same holes who you also don't resign is like trying to dig out of a hole by throwing the dirt up in the air and letting it fall back into the hole again.
It's a whole lot of going nowhere fast. You need to be able to draft and sign players worth resigning. That's the error. Because I can't get pissed off about not giving Smith or Hartline big money. They're not worth it. But dude, why did we end up with them in the first place? Draft better. And don't trade away the talented players you do draft (like Vontae).
Of that, Reshad Jones appears worth keeping. Maybe. Give it another year to make sure. Jimmy Wilson might make a good special teamer, which isn't bad for a murderer. But what about the rest?
Guys, the handwriting is on the wall. We know ireland and what he does.
1. He will sign whichever one of Wallace or jennings he can get more cheaply.
2. He wants no part of Cordarelle Patterson in any way, shape or form.
3. This team will draft NO WR before round 4 when he can get ryan swope.
4. He is determined to go cornfed with #12.
5. We will be 7-9 again.
ANY permutation of a WR corps that has hartline in it is a CHEAP, MEDIOCRE, SELLOUT, SURRENDER, FAIL of a WR corps that is allergic to excellence and refuses to be elite among the NFL's units. A Super Bowl-caliber WR corps does not have hartline-type players in it, who can't make plays and find the end zone.

Ryan Tannehill. Ah, what a relief. Life is good.
Agree with Clemons, pass on Hartline, to many receivers that are playmakers.....
