Do you know how many 1st team pro bowlers Ireland drafted? One. Jake Long. That's it.
That's not scheme, that's not luck, that's not coaching, that's talent evaluation pure and simple.
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst.
As far as depth....the Phins are already down a starter at CB (Patterson) and Carroll is the fill in (and has done a solid job)...of far do you expect the depth to be good after the first replacement?
I won't debate the offensive line depth or starters.....awful....major failure this offseason especially when guys like Louis Vasquez, Andy Levitre, Gosder Cherilus, Bushrod...its sad that none of these player were aquired...
Round 1: Taco Charlton (DE)…Talented linemen, and from Michigan (Ross happy).
Round 2: Jarrad Davis (LB)…Intense, undersized M-LB)
Round 3: Isaac Asiata (G)… Powerful, with good athletic quickness for size.
Round 5: Corn Elder (DB)…Very smart, great anticipation, for slot
Round 5: Ben Boulware (LB)…Very smart, great instincts.
Round 5: Jon Toth (C)…One of the better pass-blocking Centers.
Round 7: Bryan Cox (LB)…Good potential, with good genes.
The positional coaches are a joke on offense... Except for Sherman, most were rookie coaches coming in with Philbin & Sherman.... On the Dolphin website they say our T.E. coach has 13 years of experience, but that's including his playing days,
he's only been coaching for 2 years.... On D, there's a lot more experience and you can see the difference... Ireland in my opinion has to go
How is it we lose both Jake Long & Devon Bess, and Ireland doesn't replace really replace either? Yes, we got Gibson and Wallace in free agency but Wallace was a given, and we needed more depth at receiver anyway.... Long leaves via free agency (i'm ok with it) but why doesn't Ireland replace him through free agency, or the draft? You can add Bush to the list as well, I like Miller but he barely carried the ball last year, there had to be a reason? Daniel Thomas is a bust, why do they continue to give him the carries? Why not let Miller to get some momentum?
LOL @someone in Bum**** Iowa who probably has seen 1 game live in 5 years if that, likely buys Chinese jersey rip-offs, etc, calling the guy who actually put his money where his mouth is, and continues to do so an "******* owner."
If you really wanna talk *******s, then one can safely declare that in comparison to some of our "fans" especially of the "remote" persuasion, Ross's sphincter is relatively miniscule.
