    I think the axiom that you go by in scouting is you like to see a quarterback with 30 starts under his belt before hes ready to play, and we kind of violated that, our principle, Ireland said.

    Yeah, its the exact opposite...but he also stated it went against his professional principles. Which is more likely, that he will consistently go against his professional principles or he will go back to said principles for other positions? Its important to note that Ross was pressuring him(even bringing it up in public) to land a franchise quarterback.

    Can't trust anything really coming from this team anymore. Heck, even outside of this team media wise. Last year at this time the media had us with Manning as starting QB.

    If you don't want to feel to bad just consider anything they say as political talk and wait until after FA and the draft to see who is actually on the roster before you get too excited/disappointed.

    That is true, but as of right now over 80% of the players drafted during his tenure as GM haven't had their rookie contracts expire yet. Those who will have their contracts expire on March 12th are currently in contract negotiations so the "none have been re-signed" argument won't stand in a couple of weeks. The under 20% that have had their rookie contracts expire were picks from the early days of the Parcells era. I know Ireland had the GM title and he didn't just collect a pay check during that time, but you are naive if you think Parcells wasn't calling the shots. Ireland is being judged from 2011 and on, and none of those picks have had their rookie contracts expire so it is hard to say he has never re-signed his own picks.

    Olinemen can be found in later rounds. Skill players must be taken early. I dunno, it's all a gamble. Thomas not worth a 2, Egnew not worth a 3, Bess worked out great. Educated gambling.

    JI has to hit homeruns for his job and the fans sake.

    What does that make the GM of a team with four straight losing seasons that still hasn't shored up an oline he has put every conceivable resource into?

    The issue I have with this whole discussion is the following: Ireland has been here for five years as our GM, a period of time that most objective observers would say is adequate for any good general manager to rebuild a roster and make it competitive with the best in the league. Now we are here in his sixth draft and sixth period of free agency and we still have nine or ten starting positions on the team that require upgrade before we can be considered to be realistically competitive for a trip to the Super Bowl. Think about that deeply for a moment. He has had five years to turn this ship around and almost half the starting lineup still requires upgrades to be competitive with the best of the league. In my opinion, if that doesn't tell you everything you need to know about Ireland's stewardship of our beloved Dolphins then nothing will.

    So, does anyone have any plan that is more realistic than the odds of hitting the Powerball for how Ireland can update all nine to ten starting positions that need upgrades in one draft and free agent season? I want us to be Super Bowl competitive in 2013, not 2023.

I am excited about the upcoming offseason, the national perspective is positive for the Dolphins upcoming offseason, there is no need to keep crying because Ireland was retained. This is a make or break year for him, if they succeed he is gets a contract extension. If he fails he won't be re-signed, it is just that simple.



    Go Dolphins!
    Not really because Ross could easily retain him just as he did before. Its not like contract are honored

    Well then you're not a fan, you're a "fan". Real fans go on blind faith and everything is pixies and fairy dust for us.
