Mike Tanier's mock draft discussion of the Dolphins contains an insightful quote:

"Perhaps the Dolphins are stuck at .500 because they are always drafting to replace the outgoing players who kept them at .500."

So far in free agency it appears that this is exactly what we are doing: resigning the same mediocre players who led us to a 7-9 record at higher salaries. We never improve ourselves -- we just keep staying the same.

If this continues at least Ireland will be gone.
