    "We were playoff contenders, if only Carpenter hadnt missed his kicks!"

    Same song, different year. Good teams are able to succeed even if their kickers screw the pooch a few times. For us it sinks our season.

    And had Carpenter really screwed us that badly, our general manager probably should have replaced him. Heck, Carpenter has been missing kicks for years, why were we put in this position in the first place?
    Meh no kicker makes every kick, Carp is fine Dolphins fans just hold grudges. If you want a perfect kicker that will never miss in clutch situations dont even bother looking no such thing exists

    And actually, fans do have an impact our the franchise. We dont have to attend games and we dont have to publically support the franchise. The owners arent stupid, they understand when something isnt acceptable. They dont like seeing an empty stadium. If their product isnt as popular as their competitors, some take it personally. I like Ross because he does seem to care. For most franchise losing brings about changes. For ours that doesnt seem to be the case, but Ross does seem to comprehend fan outrage.

    No where im my post did i suggest that people having a positive outlook never use logic or have facts on their side. I stated that for a specific type of behavior, though even then those individuals often have facts on their side...or at least occasionally. In the case of Ireland and the Dolphins, the facts are overwhelmingly against those individuals. Yet, there are still some on here who believe Ireland has done nothing wrong ever in his life. Even when presented with facts their opinion wont budge(and they often get angry and vengeful), thus crossing the line from "positive outlook" to "denying reality".
    OK dude I tried. Peace.

    Host: Well we'll see what happens when Ireland's contract is up after next season..
    Omar: His contract isn't up until 2015
    Host: WHAT!?! BACK UP, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!?!
    Omar: Huh, you didn't know that, I thought it was common knowledge. Oh yeah, he's under contract through 2015.


    Take that for what its worth, it was a strange conversation and I have no links but Omar seemed to think Ireland would be under contract for at least 2 more seasons.
    Omar seems to be alone in this thought (no surprise). I have read several articles and all indicate his contract expires at the end of this season. He was given a 2 year extension at the same time Sparano was in 2011.

In the meanwhile the players gave a admirable effort. Even though some were ill-equipped to play schemes. Because of last year's sacrifices, this team is in an enviable position in both free agency and the draft. Still, Rome was not built in one season. The pushback comes from your playoff ultimatum. I can think of 100 reasons why we don't make the playoffs that don't include poor decisions from the GM. People like you take hindsight and act like It is divine knowledge.
    In how many seasons was Rome built? Because 7-9 Stinks as a record and I didn't see many pro bowlers on this team. We were not good by any definition of the word last season. There is some cause for possible hope now that we have a new qb but the jury is still out on Tanny but I cannot think of too many positons on this team where i say we are set there. Therefore in my view this team is NOT crafted to make the playoffs as PRESENTLY constituted and that STINKS. I agree that it was good to purge the players that were a bad influence, it needed to be done but in the tradition of this board I am left wondering if that was Philbins decision not Irelands.Either war the talent on the team needs to be greatly improved, hopefully this offseason with all the tools he has to work with in terms of cap space and draft picks we will see that influx of needed talent.

    Most others(for example: Mike Berardino, Armando Salguero, Ben Volin) have said Ireland's contract expires after this season. If I am looking for breaking news or real inside information Omar Kelly is one of the LAST ones I would listen to or trust. If everyone else says one thing and he says another, I am going with the majority, especially when we are talking about Omar. He hardly ever breaks stories or hits on his reports. The guy couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat.

    I would love to hear this audio Omar had, if it even exists.

Playoffs or at least the same record as a playoff team but booted out due to tie breaker is the bare minimum to save his job.
    We were 2 missed FGs away from being 9-7, in which case we STILL would not have made the playoffs, we still got beat by every good team we faced, and we got killed by the Pats, Texans and Titans. In other words, had this team made the playoffs last year it would have been a repeat of 2008. As constituted, this team is not good enough to compete consistently with the big boys in the NFL, it's not good enough to win playoff games, and that SHOULD NOT be acceptable. Through the team's play next year, I need Ireland to prove to me that he picked a great quarterback and that he built a team that is at least good enough to have a shot at winning playoff games by competing consistently and beating good teams.
    I'm tired of losing in embarrassing fashion, I want a playoff berth and AT LEAST a very competitive playoff performance or I want Ireland gone. There are no more excuses, Ireland simply has not been good enough.

    Why would I make something like that up? I don't think it makes a difference if he's under contract for 1 year or 50, he'll be fired if he does a bad job anyway and its just Ross' pocket book that takes the hit, so I don't really care that much.

    It definitely happened because I can still hear the host flipping out about it, it was probably around mid Nov- mid Dec if you want to try to dig it up. Don't remember who the host was either. Personally I think Omar might have just messed up on his dates, it wasn't like he was breaking news it just came out in conversation.

    We better hope and pray that Ireland doesn't screw this free agency period and draft up because it will set us back a long way if he does.
    Please God, let me see 1 Dolphins Superbowl victory before I die.

    I heard it too. Not saying what he said is true, I do recall the interview. The interviewer almost lost his lunch when Omar said that, he also didn't believe Omar. That was very very clear lol.

    I didn't mean to imply you made it up, since you can't remember exactly when it happened perhaps you were mistaken. Though I don't doubt that Omar would say something like that, I do doubt the level of truth to it.
