Acorns .... acorns
Armando isn't so much sitting on the fence as he is doing things with the fence that are illegal in most southern states.
I remember he wrote against the Ireland marchers, then the next day he wrote on how to more effectively march against Ireland.
He is a joke, a long standing sad pathetic joke. The only joke sadder than him is the clown on wsvn who does sports.
Praise for what? Doing nothing in 4 years?

If you say negative things about the Dolphins: agenda.
I did laugh at how you shot someone a thumbs down a single post after you complained about receiving thumbs down.
For such a short post, it had alot of funny in it.

Yep. I think we can all name ten posters who no matter who we draft will praise it as being anywhere from solid to great just like they do after every single draft. The constant negative Nancys used to be my pet peeve but its now the ones who laud every single move and defend everything dolphin that irk me more. I mean there are a number of people who refuse to say one critical thing about the team. I mean if we were the pats fine but not even close
I can't believe the negative-nancy Ireland bashers on this board. A few points for you all to consider:
- Ireland has not yet lost any starters that are due to hit free agency. Having said that, I think it's very smart for him to let them hit free agency so that he doesn't end up overpaying them before the market dictates their value. IMHO, chances are that many of the free agents the dolphins are interested in re-signing will be disappointed with their market value and will re-sign with the fins on reasonable terms. Of course we will lose a few like maybe Bush, Matt Moore, McDaniel but it seems Jeff has a priority plan so that we end up with value players on the roster.
- Furthermore, the money that he saves on players not re-signed will be allocated to players in free agency that better fit our needs. Like a difference-maker WR for example. Yes he will have to overpay for this type of player, but it's still value in the sense that it fits better with what our new coaching staff is trying to do. He will also go after some value players like he did in the past with Randy Starks, Anthony Fasano, Cameron Wake, Matt Moore, Kevin Burnett; All free agents and trades that didn't break the bank in terms of cap or draft picks but turned out to be solid starters or better.
- We still have the very deep (by all accounts) draft where we have 9 picks, 6 of which are in the first 3 rounds. I am very excited about this, in part because of how this last draft turned out. How many of the players drafted do you all think should make the team and have an impact? I would conservatively say about 5 or 6 including UDFA's.
So between resigning our own FAs going by priority, picking up a few free agents that better fit our system, and being in good position in a deep draft, there's plenty to be optimistic about. I commend Ireland for putting us in this situation and I'm pretty confident he'll do well in the coming months based on what he's done recently, including having found us a possible franchise QB.
Difference Makers dolphins should target in draft:
Chance Warmack (OG) Alabama
Ezekiel Ansah (DE) BYU
Tyler Eifert (TE) ND
Xavier Rhodes (CB) FSU
Margus Hunt (DE)
Ryan Swope (WR) Texas A&M
Andre Ellington (RB) Clemson
