    HOW MANY PLAYS Lucks playmakers make for him.

    Just unreal.

    It is utterly disgusting how people defend Ireland. JUSt LOOK AT THIS FRANCHISE GO FROM 2 WINS TO EXPLOSIVE AND CHALLENGING RVAENS AND MIAMI IN 5 YEARS IS STILL BORING PATHETIC AND AVERAGE.

    I don't know how anyone can defend Ireland without stating facts such as:

    1) He did NOT want Tannehill so dont put that on him
    2) He was about to pay $9 mill a year to ORTON until Ross stepped in
    3) He traded our best CB adn WR and surprised why we have the lkes of Carroll, McCann, Armstrong, NaNaee running in and out of Miami.
    4) He did not FIELD any exciting, good, fun, or contending team in 5 years.
    5) He has nOT fixed our O line issuse after investing our entire ORGANIZATION in that 1 area. If you think he hasn't, think again. #1 pick, #16 pick, #4x (Martin), FA Incognito, FA Grove, FA Carey, 4th rd Jerry, FA Hicks, etc etc.
    6) He trades up for slow pathetic Runnign Backs but trades BACK when explosive ones like Mathews is on board.
    7) He thought the WR Gap btw the 3rd round and earlier was so big that they did not warrant that high of a pick but yet 1 month later he wanted TY Hilton included Part of the Davis trade. He STILL thought HIlton was garbage and wanted him part of Davis? REALLLY?? The guy is a machine yet we wanted him as if he was a 6-7th round pick thrown into a deal. How dumb is this baboon? On top of that if he was so good that you want him 1 month later WTF did he do that you found him not worth it jus 1 month ago?

    if the guy thought he was stil worth a late round pick that he wanted thrown into the deal what do you think that says about his mind set still? It is still the same ****, he has no idea how to evaluate that area in football, known as playmakers.

    How many linemen have we drafted or signed in FA? Now compare that list to WR or CBs.

    On top of that, does anyone remember day 1 of the draft people were yelling how we added no speed so day 2 he took Gates and he came out and said people wanted speed and we feel we addressed that today.

    He added 1 guy to his 53 man roster with speed and he said its been addressed. Outside of that alone, he did it with a 4rd round baboon with no skill sets and he thought problem was solved.

    How do people have faith in him?

    Where did you guys get your aqua and orange glasses from because I want to order some. It would have saved me 20 years of sickness with this team. Denial for the WIN send me some of those glasses.

    8) Jeff Ireland stimulates local advertising economy with his name towed on a banner behind a airplane.

    9) Jeff Ireland builds community outings by creating protest at team headquarters.

    10) Jeff Ireland helped Ms. Bryant reform her life when he brought her whorish ways to public light.

    I will just say that when Ireland first got here, he wanted to draft Anquan Bolden WR in the second round and recommended that to Parcells who thought differently. e should have been a dolphin from the start.

    Amazing that the Colts went out and hired the GM that I wanted a couple of years ago...

    And then that GM went out and drafted three players that I screamed about last season and then went on to a 9 win improvement.

    From 2 wins to 11 wins...without a superstar at left tackle lol.

    Crazy stuff.

    Don't get me wrong...the OP makes some very valid and deservedly passionate points and is entitled to vent. However most of these points part and parcel or together have been reiterated and regurgitated ad nauseum. At some point in the near future it might be a good idea for our Admins to step in to start a forever-merging "Jeff Ireland. Soapbox Pro & Con Master Thread" to allow continued venting or defending even though it has all been said or covered before.

    Ireland Could have traded a 3rd and 4th for Boldin instead of 2 seconds for Marshall though?!?!

    I know I remember I was arguing the same thing

    Now where are all the Finheaven GMs that said Boldin was to old and not worth the a third and fifth round picks in 2010? That's Anquon Boldin instead of John Jerry and Nolan Carroll signed for half the price of Brandon Marshall!

    Too bad Reggie Wayne and Andrew Luck can't play defense for the Colts. Man that D is awful....over 420 yards given up to a 17th ranked offense.

    Luck would have done nothing here, he has many more weapons there, and still looks pretty average today.

    Meh.

    Last place schedule, Reggie Wayne=Ronnie Brown Wildcat. Colts look like 2008 Fins. Without Rice's fumbles this is a huge route like 2008. Not all entirely true but you get my drift.

    It's like the people who constantly whine about Ireland don't really watch the games, they only look at the box scores.

    If you watched the games you would know that were were just a few plays away from a winning season. All of the games were close except for two of them.

    These are the same people who really just want to buy Superbowl Dolphin Tshirts and superbowl memorabilia.

    Come on look at all the dropped passes, the int was tipped by the Wr, look how many times luck was hurried pressured and sacked? You can't honestly have missed all that? You of all people would have been on here pointing all that out if Tannehill was in the same place.

    YES! For the love of christ.

    Then when we start dominating next season I only have to bump one thread to clown all of these Ireland haters instead of sifting through 2,341 threads to find the biggest fools like OP here.

    yea because a gm that totally forgets about cb and wr will set us up to dominate. Who knows what happens next season but people hating a gm that has been here for 5 years and 4 losing seasons is not some weird emotion lol

    Just saying that should be the number one topic on a team that has 4 straight losing seasons and the only constant is jeff Ireland.
    I mean its fine to say we have too many negative threads but 4 losing seasons do that to u. Losing season is not a good season but i guess some fans have become acclimated to it.

    Played against one of the top defenses on the road, no running game to rely on, no protection from his offensive line...guy had a pretty good day considering he's had to carry that team this season as a rookie.

    Average lol. Some of you only know how to read box scores and post fantasy stats.

    Andrew Luck was the best player on the field today. Thats pretty impressive when on the opposite side were two HOF defenders and one of them I consider to be the best safety in the history of the game. The other makes a damn strong argument for greatest LB of all time.

    Baltinore was a very poor matchup for Indianapolis. I was surprised at how close the Colts were able to keep it in the first half.

    Like you said, Baltimore -6.5 was the best bet of the entire playoffs and I loaded up. I would have bet that at -10.5 as well. For a rookie QB to only turn the football over twice on the road against a smothering defense was pretty predictable. Luck ran for his life today. Probably should save turned it over about 5 times in all reality.

    I guess the only way to justify Tannehill's poor play is to try and build up the weapons around Luck. What a joke! Reality is Miami had the better weapons around Tannehill than the Colts had around Luck.

    Colts skill players:

    Reggie Wayne - 34 years old. Still good, but no where near the player he was 5-6 years ago. Took 194 targets (most in Wayne's career) to put up his numbers. Only caught 54.63% of passes thrown to him and had 6.95 ypa. Hartline caught 57.8% of passes thrown to him and had 8.46 ypa.
    Donnie Avery - Didn't play in 2010. Played in 8 games last year making 3 catches on 11 times targeted. For his career QBs complete less than 50% of passes thrown to him.
    T.Y. Hilton - ROOKIE
    Dwayne Allen - ROOKIE
    Coby Fleener - ROOKIE
    LaVon Brazil - ROOKIE
    Vick Ballare - ROOKIE

    That is the talent Luck had around him this year. Five of the seven players targeted 20+ times were ROOKIES. One veteran WR who is 34 years old and another that only had 3 catches over the last "two years" and catches less than 50% of the balls thrown to him over his career. The Colts are the third team of his 4 year career for a reason.

    Yet, Luck was able to take a team that was 2-14 and go 11-5. Any idea how many routes were run wrong, mis-communication, etc...Luck had to deal with playing with 5 rookies at skill positions?

    The FACT is the Colts have the better QB than Miami. The argument that he had the superior weapons is just plain B.S...you wouldn't find a QB or coach in the league that would have taken the Colts weapons over Miami's this year. Tannehill may set an all-time low for QB rating if he played for the Colts this year and the Colts would most likely be in line for the #1 pick in the draft for the second year in a row.

    From the sound of some of these posts you would think the Colts were 'Air Coryell'. They put up 9. That's pretty good.......IN BASEBALL.
    BTW, the Colts won 2 games last yr because they had some clown named Curtis Painter who had no business playing in the NFL. In fact, it was coaching and FO malfeasance that permitted this joke to play the entire season.
    That Colts team was in the playoffs several yrs running prior to last season, so the team wasn't as bad as people make them out to be.

    If you want to see average, take a look at RGIII right now. Very very average player when you keep him from running.

    Yeah that happens when you have a jacked up knee on your plant foot. Kid will not push into his throws I guarantee after Washington is eliminated this kid has some sort of surgery.

    that last play says it all that knee is done!

    Right. But we all understand how the league makes the proper adjustments to a running QB. We're getting a glimpse into the future when teams figure out how to keep Griffin in the pocket even when he's healthy. Then what...well, you have an average RGIII.

    Luck on the other hand, look at how well he plays with little protection and rookie weapons. He has mobility and can do what he needs to do in te pocket to make plays downfield. What happens when their weapons figure it all out and you give him time to make bigger plays downfield.

    Until the knee got tweaked Washington was steam rolling the Seahawks. It's not a accurate comparison because right now RGIII can't even step into his throws. That said I will take Luck all day every day over any of the rookie QBs, but if Luck had a issue with his plant knee he would be limited just the same.
