Ummm...personally...I'd rather commend him for letting a corner who can't tackle, play the ball, or cover wide receivers walk. Do you watch different games? He sucks.
Either way -- Ireland drafted the kid so it's a waste of 2nd round talent no matter how your slice the pie.
The only F/A's I am disappointed in losing are Reggie Bush, Anthony Fasano and possibly Jake Long. I've come to realize Philbin has brought a new era to Miami, an era that doesn't include most of the past regimes players. Sean Smith even at 3yrs and $18m was a tease player. He gave you a few good games a year and thought of himself as elite. But to fire Ireland over Sean Smith, not gonna happen. Over the next 2 yrs Miami is set up very well cap wise and may be entitled to several comp draft picks in 2014 for losing Smith, Bush and Fasano. Perhaps Long will return but am not expecting him to, if he does leave, it would mean another comp pick for Miami to play with. Ireland has done surprisingly well these last 2 seasons, but am most encourage by his cap management and shared vision with Philbin. With all that said, I'm not sure he survives IF Miami has a losing season in 2013.
