    Ireland needs to hit a grand slam with the 2013 draft. 5 picks in rounds 1-3 can't be bungled.

    This is our year for a grade A draft.....and although I'd like to keep him,we also have trade bait for Matt Moore.

    There is No way he screws things up because the current team can win so adding a good WR a CB and a S will be no problem.

    Not just the draft the most critical will be free agency, rookies won't save our season from next season with how tough the schedule will be.

    WR and CB weren't the gaping holes they are now going into this offseason.

    I really kind of worry about who Ireland views as playmakers as well. In another thread CK brought up a good point, and I hope I'm not misquoting him, that to Ireland having great measurables and being a playmaker seem to be the same thing. A guy that's this tall and this fast are similar players, so why not grab the guy that goes in the sixth round and take someone safe in the first round? It's very flawed logic.

    That post sums up Ireland's drafting philosophy. Him having picks and money scares me

    I liked this part of the article as well.

    "That means free agent Jake Long’s days with the team could be over. Frankly, even when Long was great he never won or lost a game. He didn’t run for yards or catch passes, and he didn’t stop anyone from doing it. Lots of teams with worse left tackles went to the playoffs while the Dolphins stayed home."

    He was referring playmakers and players like jake long in their respective positions.

    Matt Moore's contract is expiring. I hope we can resign him because having a proven veteran backup QB is a wonderful thing, but I am afraid he will be heading off to a team that needs a starting QB like Arizona, Buffalo, or the Jets. I really hope it's not the Jets.

    ---------- Post added at 01:48 AM ---------- Previous post was at 01:46 AM ----------

    I think we're going to find out very early in free agency just how worried we should be. If he brings in the Legedu Naanees of the world again, we are in big trouble.

    He brings in Jennings or Wallace or even Bowe or Harvin, and he doesn't throw ten million a year at Jake Long, and maybe I put away the pitchfork until the draft.

    I agree. With cap space and a lot of draft picks, this is Miami's best chance to get playmakers and build a playoff-caliber team.

    I am a big Jake fan, but he has been dissapointing and injury prone. The big dude cannot bend as much as h could only 2 seasons ago. Use that money on a starting CB such as cox. WR such as Wallace/Jennings/bowe. We will have a tough schedule and need veteran playmakers to mix with the rookies.

    One thing that scares me with letting long walk would be using our 1 on one of the tackles that will be available. I am also not sold on weak Jonathan Martin being abl to protect RT)'e blind side. He needs to put in alot of time in the weight room

    Right. Ireland's drafting philosophy has not even resulted in a good o-line (considering all of the picks and money that went into it), let alone a team with its fair share of talented playmakers. WR and CB were big holes heading into this season. How did he fill them? He signed FAs that couldn't make other teams' rosters, and waited until the end of the draft to look for WRs. On the business end, he may have decided to not pay big bucks on FAs this year and accumulate draft picks and cap money so that he could go for broke next year. While this is actually a good strategy from a business point of view, on the football side of things not getting a good WR and CB is probably the reason why they won't be in the playoffs this year. Ireland seems to be competent with money matters, but he needs help in the talent acquisition department.

    It's easy to be competent with money matters when you don't have any talent to spend it on. He has also paid out big bucks to offensive lineman who stunk. This guy, and and an eye for talented playmakers, are on a different planet. If he stays, and actually does the right thing, it will be the biggest shock of my life. Lets look at it this way, he didn't even get good players for the philosphy he was groomed in. He was a failure for 5 years here, and were supposed to trust him now. I believe letting Jeff Ireland make any further personel decisions is a huge mistake. If he stays, i hope he proves me wrong, because i am sick of losing every freaking year.

    People wanted to come here. Flynn wanted to come, Winston wanted to come. They got offered better contracts elsewhere. Peyton didn't want to come, and I think it's cause he didn't want to go up against Brady.

    It is Ireland's make or break off season, certainly in terms of the fans and possibly as a result with Ross. Philbin has said, admittedly like nearly everyone else in the NFL, that he wants to build through the draft. As a consequence it is going to be hard to judge free agency, but the draft is crucial. If Ireland messes it up he is a goner.

    What money did we have last year? Players will follow the big money and could not give a hoot about Jeff Ireland being GM........ask Wake or Soliai about wanting to be here.

    Matt Moore doesn't have any trade value. He doesn't have a contract come the end of the season hes a free agent.

    Of all my years following the NFL I don't think I have ever seen a GM set up a scenario like this. 60 Mill cap space AND a butt load of good draft picks. Love him or Hate him this Off season is going to be exciting.

    I hope Ross comes to his senses before the draft. This one is a pivotal draft. The more I think about this the pressure is clearly on Ross. To Fireland or not to fire...that is the question he is faced with.
    Ross seems like the play it safe kind of guy. My only hope is that behind the scenes, Philbin has some concerns and there is an alternative candidate the makes our toes tingle.

    I think Dez Bryant is a grade-A idiot, and I'm sure he would be getting into plenty of trouble in Miami. And yes, he has dropped some critical passes for the Cowboys. But at some point, it's better to have a guy who can produce touchdowns on your team than it is to have a decent human being who trips over his own feet with green grass in front of him.

    That was a pretty damn risky move on his part - a 4 or 5 win year probably would have got him canned. I have to hand it to him though, despite being on the hot seat and being less than stellar in landing FAs and drafting, he has always approached the offseason with a build for the future mentality.

    That's great and all, but at some point he has to start building for now.
