    We have holes at 4 out of the 5 most important positions in the NFL: WR, CB, T, and DE. Praise the man!

    Nobody's laughing any harder than me I promise you(topic). I feel as though Ross/Ireland have sapped me of any hope I have left. I've come to almost expect failure. Our 'Fins track record says it all....."BUT I'M HANGIN ON"!!!

    Yes thank you Ireland, we have been enjoying 7-9 seasons and poor drafts from you. Who wouldn't like those things? Oh but your supporters are doing a spin job in the levels of nyjunc about your tenure here, it was the Pat Riley plan all along to suck for 4 years straight and have cap space in 2013 for the likes of Jennings (always injured), Bowe (drops everything), and Wallace (a borderline one dimensional star).

    It's called robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    He has the cap space because he is losing possibly 7 starters in FA, 32% of his starting team.

    So he needs to replace them (even by re-signing a couple) in FA and the draft plus find 3-4 quality starters to upgrade to make the playoffs, IMO.

    So we are looking at finding as many as 10-11 starters including re-signs.

    This by a guy who has been good for 2-4 per year the last 5 years.

    Good luck with that....

    No threats at WR, no talent on the books at CB, a QB on his rookie deal, no explosive offensive players under contract...by damn Id hope we have some cap space.

First he gets no blame for the first 3 years because of Parcells, people actually absolve him from any wrong doing during that time.. . . then he gets no blame for bringing in terrible talent at skills positions, yet we want to praise him for having cap room this year? Well no ****. Meanwhile the Patriots are restructuring Tom Brady to probably make a run at Mike Wallace . . . I guess their GM deserves no props because they technically "restructured" and didn't keep quiet like the Dolphins. Must be painful to actually bring in talent and have to figure out how to keep that talent rather than be void of talent at several positions and remain still.

    I'm glad the situation has presented himself like it has though, because the excuses for this GM we have are never ending. It's win/win for me . . . if he hits this offseason out of the park, the Fins will be a good team and I could care less about Ireland protectors saying "I told you so". However if he wets the bed like he has been, atleast we'll probably be in for a new GM . . . unfortunately he won't have the luxuries that Ireland has this year . . . but I guess Jeff "earned" it.

    BTW, Armando is god awful at what he does.

    I think that's the prevailing attitude for many of us around here. It's mostly a bunch of noise until some actual moves are made.

    I'm really curious to see whether our free agent signings tie our hands for the draft. If we don't get some improvement in each of our major positional needs during free agency, then we're almost forced to reach based on positional need during the draft. For example, if we don't at least partially fix the WR position during free agency, we won't have as much freedom with our first pick. That's drafting from a position of weakness. I want to enter the draft feeling good about going after the BPA. We can pretend that PR doesn't factor into a GM's decisions on draft day, but if we don't get a solid FA receiver and then don't draft one on day 1? There's no way Ireland and company will want to weather that firestorm, even if waiting until day 2 might be the better overall move.

    That's exactly why I get so damn annoyed with all this "we have the most cap space since his tenure year blah blah blah" crap they're trying to spin to us. Hello, we have like 10 holes out there.

    Then they try to sell to us that our mediocre free agents are actually good players and we should re-sign them to the deals they want. Yeah, to defend Ireland previous drafts they call our mediocre players "good".
