    Okay. The Jeff Ireland era has begun. We know that supporters of the ownership and the regime are extremely loyal folks who don't hold bad results against people, but, even you guys have theoretical limits. So, I'll put the question to you all simply:

    How many seasons do you give Jeff Ireland to deliver a Super Bowl before you demand he's gone from the team? I'm not a supporter, so obviously my answer is now.

    3 years if he addresses the qb position. 1 if he does not.

    IMO, if he addresses the qb position, I'll allow that it may take a year to get acclimated. 2nd year look for improvement and a playoff run, 3rd year we should have our **** together.

    if he does NOT address the qb position, I'll assume he thinks we are set their and he would than need to take it to the house.

    With anyone else I'd say they were being sarcastic, but I'm not sure here...

    Agree, but I also want to see HOW he addresses the QB spot. He needs to land a guy with the potential to be a franchise QB and not a 2nd rate prospect. I realize that will be difficult from where we are picking. But thats his job and I believe that is the task Ross has set out for him.

    That why I think he trades for a rg3 or luck! It buys him a few years.

    I don't believe in the real fan/fake fan stuff but since we are a discussion board, I do like to see when and where different posters come forward on their opinions and support for various people in the regime, so we can see if they were right or wrong.

    Unless RGIII falls to us, Probably not.

    By trading up that far, he has less tools to surround the new QB with. :up:

    I'll take the 25 years .. if it means Miami has become a consistent playoff contender with a few super bowl appearances in between!!! I know, I know wishful thinking on my part!!! LOL

    I guess it looks that way when you cut out his response that goes between those two posts.

    It was a joke, meant no harm to you or thread. Just injecting some humor, I apologize if you felt offended.

    I support Ireland right now, but that could change quickly depending on who he hires as HC and what direction he takes the draft in April. For him to keep my support next year, we have to do better with our FA signings, we need to draft a QB, and we need to get a HC that's a winner. If he fails at any of those in 2012 he's dunzo.

    5 years. Without Parcells in his ear, he will have a bit more breathing space and put his prints over this team. 5 years will be sufficient.

    Not sure exactly how much say he has in the Coaching decision?

    And although I feel ridiculous for answering this for the? 6th time..... I think we see what this coming off-season brings.

    Like it or not, he has delivered some very good talent both via FA (Dansby, Marshall and Bush), the Draft, and even UDFA's in Bess and Cam Wake.

    We will have to see what pans out this offseason. IF we are in the playoffs next year, I think he's golden for a few more years.

    If we start 0-7 and its a talent issue, writing could well be on the wall.

    This I agree with, its the FA signings that really seem to be real head scratchers.

    I think he will have a lot of influence over the caching decision, being that Ross wouldn't even know what to look for. I suspect that Ross will probably pick the coach, but Ireland will select the candidates.

    Laugh, but the sad truth is not a single finheaven poster could've delivered fewer playoff victories than the real Dolphins GM's have over the past decade.

    And just imagine how much better this team would be if in the last ten years we had just drafted whatever the tv was telling us to do instead of Jamar Fletcher, Eddie Moore, etc.

    Yep, but Ireland has to step up big to get our future QB whether it be FA or draft. I also will not react to people who poo poo Matt Moore when they were screaming for Orton. Ireland has done a nice job since being in charge and it is definitely why, whether you like it or not, he is still here.

    Everyone will only talk about the names who are obvious, but the good gm's make things happen with people who are not so obvious and still find the gems. Its way too early and finheaven is king of the early ejaculation.

    And in regards to Bush, not many people were believers in him except for Ireland. Same with Matt Moore; regardless of what you think of Matt Moore's future, he played well for us this year and was a good find that no one saw coming.

    I don't count myself as a die hard Ireland supporter by any means. But the man deserves his share of credit for those moves.

    i just find the "how many years to win a superbowl" as if its easy for any qualified person to just win superbowls at will.

    what year were some ppl born? and what color is the sky in their world?
