« David Garrard joins the Miami Dolphins | Main | Jeff Ireland speaks to the media »

Jeff Ireland is not the devil

This post is not going to be popular. This post absolutely will not fit the current popular narrative surrounding the Dolphins the past week. And I don't take this undertaking lightly because I don't enjoy taking a bullet for someone who is not my family or close friend.

But ...

This Jeff Ireland hatred is getting more than a tad ridiculous.

To begin, I cannot say I agree with every single move Ireland makes. I don' agree with his approach with the media. I am aware agents talk behind his back (if they do it with me I'm assuming they do it with others) and complain of an arrogance that is baffling and approach that sometimes borders on bullying.

But I also do not agree he is a total screwup and gets everything wrong -- maybe that's because he doesn't.

I thought the David Garrard signing was a very good one, assuming the projected use for him is what I believe it will be and isn't followed by a crazy chase of Alex Smith or Tim Tebow. I thought the re-signing of Paul Soliai at a bargain price -- $6 million per year when he had a bigger deal on the table with Denver and for a price that is half of what the team paid last year -- was a coup that got whitewashed in the negative theme of the day.

I like the fact the Dolphins held to their guns in coming to a organizational value for Matt Flynn, remembering that coach Joe Philbin knows this guy as well as anyone. People are saying Flynn picked the Seahawks over the Dolphins. I think it's more accurate to say the Dolphins picked something else over Flynn because I don't believe they wanted to outbid Seattle. I like that Miami made a move to explore Alex Smith. I like that Miami won't be paying Smith $8 million a year because that's crazy money considering seven years of watching this guy has offered only one season of promising production.

I understand (I think) why the Dolphins traded Brandon Marshall. I like Marshall and think he's an engaging guy. He really is great if you speak with him. Guy's charming. But he is a trouble magnet. He is immature and the lack of a father figure in his life gives him no foundation on which to sometimes understand right from wrong and being an adult from being a kid. I believe unless that changes, he's going to be in trouble again eventually. So the move to jettison him is logical on several levels.

I also understand and cannot criticize Ireland for letting Kendall Langford go. Quick, what was the last game-changing play he made? What was his signature moment in Dolphins history? Correct, he didn't have one. He was a grunt, a role-player albeit a nice one. Certainly, he's not a guy worth $6 million per year and a $12 million guarantee, which is what he got from St. Louis.

And, because I am not a hypocrite, I also cannot rip the idea of cutting Yeremiah Bell. Bell is one of my favorite players. He's a tough blankety blank. He's a good locker room guy. But he's 34 years old and his play isn't likely to get better. And for years I've urged the Dolphins to be one of those teams that jettisons players before they totally break down and lose it rather than waiting an extra year and suffering the actual fast decline while the player is on the roster.

The Dolphins cut Bell on Monday before he completely fades out. I cannot rip them for that, considering he brings $4.3 million in cap relief. (Also, we don't know if Miami offered Bell a chance to cut his salary and he refused or not.)

So all these moves that Ireland is getting destroyed for ... tell me how they were terrible. Tell me what he should have done.

The Garrard signing, by the way, is being panned because David Garrard is not a franchise quarterback and Ireland has promised a reach for a franchise QB this offseason. "We need to add a quarterback that can get us over the hump," he's told The Miami Herald.

No kidding. That's been the case for a decade, including five offseasons during Ireland's employment in Miami. And Garrard is not that guy.

But Ireland hasn't said he is. Ireland hasn't said that's his signature QB move of the spring. Seems to me Garrard is a move to add a veteran backup presence who might get a shot to win a job in the short-term. Hello? Compeition is good.

Unless I miss my guess, the Dolphins aren't done adding at quarterback. I believe they will draft a kid on which the club's future hopes will rest. At least that is my sense.

Maybe that rookie will be a bust. Maybe he'll be a star. The point is to rip Ireland for a move not yet made in an offseason not yet complete is hating for hating's sake.

On that front, there's plenty headed in Ireland's direction now. I hear there is a fan protest scheduled for today to rip Ireland. On Sunday, Pittsburgh safety Ryan Clark ripped Ireland on twitter and blamed him for Miami's ills and talked of how "the guy running things is not a good" person.

Then yesterday on NFL Network, former Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter blew up Ireland on national television. He blamed the Dolphins inability to close on, say, Peyton Manning and Flynn on Ireland.

"I think Jeff Ireland has a big part to do with it," Porter said. "I don't think when you come in being recruited by him, you totally believe things coming out of his mouth. I think he's a guy that's not trustworthy. He really doesn't hold up to what a GM's supposed to be."

Well, I really don't think Porter holds up to what a man is supposed to be. Porter is a great guy to have on a team when things are good. But as soon as things go bad, he becomes part of the problem. And as soon as he's no longer getting his way or is out of contract, he bites the hand that feeds him. He previously blew up Cam Cameron. He previously blew up Tony Sparano. He previously blew up Mike Tomlin.

The guy has a history for ripping people that either cut him, let him go in free agency, or stood up to him. So while you don't have to dismiss his criticism, at least understand where it originates.

By the way, this idea that Miami can't land anyone is getting on my nerves. No, they didn't get Harbaugh. No, they didn't land Fisher. No, they didn't get Manning. Which one of those was Ireland responsible for?

Manning, of course.

Well, the Dolphins didn't get Manning. And neither did San Francisco, Arizona, or Tennessee. The Jets, Kansas City, and Seattle all have good to outstanding GMs. None of them could even get a meeting with Manning. So Ireland is a bad guy because the Dolphins swung and missed on Peyton Manning?

Look, I do not agree with every move Ireland makes. To me, the Manning chase was a waste of time that I didn't agree with. I would have been in Mario Williams' jock and tried to sign him and I would have outbid Kansas City for Eric Winston. It would have been two blue chip additions to the team and my overall talent would have gone way up.

Instead the Dolphins are shopping at K-Mart with Artis Hicks and Jamaal Westersomebody.

I also would have gone to the wall (yes, even giving up FOUR first round picks) to land Robert Griffin III. I would have gotten my franchise QB one way or another. Ireland didn't.

But does that make the guy a loser? A man to revile?

Someon hacked into Ireland's Wikipedia page Tuesday and edited in some unkind things about him being born in a Denny's parking lot etc... Maybe that sounds funny to you. Maybe you're cheering the imagination of that move. I guess I'm not talking to you.

I am talking to the folks who are thinking for themselves. Break down the moves on their own merit. Tell me what you would have done. Tell me where you would depart from the current course.

Be fair.

Obviously, Ireland hasn't gotten all his moves right in the past. By the way, no one does. And the pressure is on him to land some, you know, actual stars this offseason because the Dolphins don't have any of those.

He might do that. He might not. But I'm not ready to say this guy is the devil for blowing it when we're only one week into free agency and the draft is on the horizon. I don't judge a team's gameday performance in the second quarter.

I wait until the game's over.

Fact is Miami wants a white QB they can look up to,
regardless of what the black racist Channing Crowder says

tee-hee ;)

..I think it is an issue when the most talked about person in your franchise is the G.M..For the wrong reasons.

I said yesterday that I didn't know too much about QB. Tannehill. This is true for today. I just question how we go about drafting him? I think the Browns are going to take him @ 4...Even if they don't. Wouldn't they make the Phins believe they are to force them into a move? If Tannehill is the guy the team wants. Aren't they forced to trade up to 3 to secure the pick?

Wouldn't that be a foul move? Seriously. Folks talk about salary cap, keeping picks...whatever. Tannehill is going to cost a bunch of whatever small abundance of expendable loot we have? He isn't a year 1 starter, he may not be a year 2 starter..For what?? It makes no sense..Even less sense. QB. Weeden..

This is just my opinion. But If i'm the owner. I'm firing the GM if he even brings this guys name up. He may be able to play. But quarterbacks windows in this league are almost as long as kickers...Weeden is going to be a 30 year old freekin rookie..Again, he will not play(in the best circumstances) this year. And this is going to be the face of the franchise...fly a kite.

Back to Tannehill..If he is available at 8..I support the move. Go for it..No risk at all. But if we are forced to trade up to grab RT it would re-inforce all of the Ireland is a clueless boob claims...

Ireland's personality is irrelevant. I'm not wanting to be friends with him. All I care about is the team he puts together and he's put together last place teams consistently. Armando, you can give him another month or two to make judgement on this years offseason but the fact is we need a franchise QB, two WR's, a TE, two safeties, and 3 O lineman. Ireland's going to produce all of that by minicamp?

Sometimes I wonder if us as Dolphin fans would feel differently about Ireland if he opened up the media like most GM's. I see GM's from all over the place getting interviewed on espn or nfl network.

I wonder if he were a stand up guy and would come out and say "yes we wanted Manning but couldn't get him." For what ever the reason. If he would come out and say "Flynn was in our plans but as a QB to come in and compete, not be handed the starting position. So he decided to go elsewhere.

I don't want him to give up any plans for the draft or anything but at least come out and address the media a whole lot more.

If Ireland opened up to the media more and had a continued effort to engage the fans I wonder if I would like him more. I have not been an Ireland supporter to say the least but wonder if that is a big part of the problem.

How about you guys?

and here we go again

Tebow 2(the)Tropcics


Ok I understand some are questioning Ireland (and that is your perrogative) about what is the plan. Do you really expect Ireland to tell the media and everyone else "Hey we are going to try to draft Tannehill at #8)

Posted by: kyphinfan

hey man.. he would be a terrible GM if he told you his plan .... WAKE UP!!! IT ONLY 2 WEEKS IN FREE AGENCY AND THE DRAFT HASN"T HAPPENED YET .. let it play out .. and it isnt just his plan, it's JOE PHILBINS PLAN!

Texas-
I never see winning gm's do this, Pats,Pack,Niners etc... .

Tebow 2 Tropics

tee-hee ;)

@kyphinfan
OPPs SORRY MAN .. i mis read your post ..My bad..LOL

Darryl

I believe all along we wanted Tannehill because we knew we weren't getting Luck, RGIII, or Peyton. You are right that the only other team that might pick him would be the browns, but I believe they will pass on him and try to get better at skill positions to give McCoy weapons.

That said why would Ireland (as some fans ask) divulge this information so Cleveland can do just what you said force us to move up and waste draft picks for him?

We need Gruden coaching Tebow in a sold out stadium

Lets have some Fun & Win!

Chucky & The Messiah

I don't like Ireland, he comes off in the media like he's classless, rude & shows no respect to other human beings, this I could live with if he was actually a good GM. He's been the GM for a few years & has produced how many playmakers from the draft... that's right zero... we don't have one playmaker that he has drafted, sure he got some starters from the draft, but to start for a 6-10 team you don't need to be that good... But zero playmakers from the draft is just unacceptable, we don't have a defensive player or offensive player that another team has to worry about that he drafted...sorry that's failure in my book... We have 2 boderline playmakers on this team Wake & Bush, wake is pretty much game planned out of the game, with no other player on D to worry about & we have bush who atleast has the potential to make plays, although I haven't seen him make many "oh wow!" plays. atleast he has the reputation as a playmaker, so he draws some attention, but he's another teams reject, really, they thought sproles was better & he probably is... so to make a trade for a lesser player & pay more for him than a free agent, isn't really a big plus for him. Wake, well even a blind squirrel will get a nut sometimes.... He could prove me wrong & find a couple of playmakers this year in the draft, but I don't have high hopes for it... Ted Ginn Jr. is the best playmaker we have drafted in a decade, let that sink in... That's why we are 6-10 team...
Ted "I am scared to get hit" Ginn is the best playmaker we have drafted probaly in a decade, Ronnie brown was an decent back, but was nothing to write home about...a 30 yr old Ricky Williams was better than Brown was in his prime...

NP Jeff I agree with what you said; that is why I wrote it so others would think about it.

Report just in:

After signing $96 Million dollar contract

Peyton Manning SNEEZED and hurt his neck

Peyton and his lawyers are making a disability settlement in the neighborhood of, well ... $96 Million dollars w John Elway and the Broncos

Armando,

The Fins need to improve their communication with the media (you) and their fans on "completed decisions" (it's OK to be silent while negotiating). That's the root problem with Ireland and the FO.

Their silence and lack of feedback only leads to speculation about why they've made the decisions they make. Everything we hear comes from "sources".

Don't they have a Public Relations department that can make official announcements?

yeah also i think they signed david garrard just to make teams think that they aren't drafting Q/B first round .. i've seen them do this before... David Garrard might not even be on this team at the start of the season.. THINK ABOUT IT..

MGWIII

2011 was irelands 1st year.do you really think the big EGO let him run the show in 08,09,10.
they lost out on a .500 coaching dinosaur and got a 21st century HC from the packer bloodline.
they did not overpay($$ or picks) for Miss blaine "happy feet" gabbert, orten,henne,rg3,flynn,or smith(manning took the money and the easy AFC west)
marshall is a headcase "me" guy. the wc offense is all about team(ie jerry rice and john taylor) not prima donnas. i for one think hartline,bess,fasano,bush,thomas, and especially clay(think tom rathman) will flourish in the wc.

DD - I don't see the Phins moving up for Tannehill. If they weren't willing to do it for RG3, they're not going to do it for Tannehill. I do believe they will draft him at 8 though.

I have Cleveland taking Claiborne or Richardson with their #4. I think they will take a QB with either their later 1st rounder or their early 2nd rounder.

Something that could cause Miami to lose out on Tannehill would be, getting cute and trying to trade back to the middle of the 1st or something....it's quite possible that in such a scenario, Cleveland could try to package their 1st rounder with add'l picks to move ahead of Miami and take Tannehill mid first round (between 12-17).

I agree Crusher

Really? In case you missed it both Warren Sapp and Joey Porter said on the NFL network that Ireland can not be trusted at all, that he is disrespectful to the players in negotiating and that the front office of the Miami Dolphins is in shambles! FIRE IRELAND, the team needs someone that has class and knows what they're doing! If Ross wants any sort of respect short of selling the team, he'd best get rid of Ireland!

Homey is now ripping Manning.
I thought you said he was coming to the fins.

Ireland was a scout with no mangerial experience. Ireland has developed a bad reputation, BY HIS OWN DOING. Good or bad, that's what it is. Ireland is also inexperienced.

These are all black clouds hanging over the phins & their ability to succeed.

Whether he really is a bad people person is irrelevant. The perception is causing harm to the phins. Do you continue to let this linger or do you remove him & find a new GM.

I am 100% on board with Carl Peterson becoming a short term option & interim if necessary. Irelands reputation, LIKE IT OR NOT, is destroying this franchise. You guys wanna overlook it because the media is falsely reporting or things are exaggerated or people should forget the Bryant saga?

The way some some of you are blindly sticking by him is eerily reminiscent of how fans stuck by Henne. Hoping, praying, on their knees tebowing that they will suddenly change their stripes & become something they're not.

Time for the phins to cut their losses already!

The man is not a good face for the franchise. He cannot speak to the media, he couldnt even get a better price for Marshall. No matter how Marshall did the last two seasons we should have atleast gone even on him. We arent looking for someone that swings for the fences and fails, we're looking for someone that can take this team that was once known for its undefeated season back to its glory days. Ireland is not the man. Im sorry Jeff just because you apologized for calling someones mother a prostitute doesnt mean your forgiven.

Exactly wolfman. Sit tight at #8 and draft Tannehill.

I believe Cleveland will take Richardson, or Blackmon. Never though Claborne but that is also a possibility since they need so many players; I don't think they have given up on McCoy or they would have outbid Washington for RGIII

@wolfman13
yeah i agree People that think Cleveland is going to take Tanehill at 4 are the same people that thought Miami was Mannings first choice, or that think Flynn is A francise Q/B ..LOL

Smith next to ink?

Peyton Manning was coming to the fins until Jeff Ireland told him to take his clothes off and bend over

and that was just after a cocktail party

Ireland needs to lay off the wins spritzers


tee-hee

Nice Job Armando, for your next trick can you eulagize Matt Millen's tenure as the GM for the Lions. I am sure his mother would like that!!!

*wine spritzers

I spoke with God, and He confirmed that Jeff Ireland is, in fact, the Devil.

aaaagh Chris; You had to bring up Millen. I lived in Detroit while he was GM

Nice words from Salguero. BUT, SHOW ME THE MONEY. After five years, what has Ireland accomplished here? Are we better off than we were five years ago? NO, actually I think we are worse off. It is not a matter of making one of two good decisions and four or five bad decisions. It is a matter of improving a team that was in bad shape. Has he? NO. How long did he have to do it? Five years. So, what else is there to discuss?

Garrard can WIN in this league

All u have to do is play night games and shut the light out

p.s.
Dont let him smile

tee-hee

Hey Home, Channing the black racist Crowder does not like that joke
Unless of course, a black man is telling it

Well stated!

Lets be real. the main problem here is that half of you guys think Ireland is racist. and you being of another race other than Ireland's are a hater. The whole prostitute thing is ridiculous. If your daddy's a pimp and your momma works for your daddy, hmmm? Ireland is a pretty damn good GM who hasnt had a whole lot of options to attain a ProBowl QB of the future. Where there has been, the price is steep, or the player(Manning) chose somewhere else.

i'm not surpised that Manning picked Denver and that was his favorite the whole time ... dont you go see the team your most interested in first?

Cutting Bell was really a great move by Ireland. But as always with vintage Ireland, its the way he goes about that send repercussions throughout league amongst the player fraternity.

It was cool that he cut Bell. But it isnt cool a week before cutting a player give him a glowing endorsement. Bell isnt the first to leave Miami like that. We've seen many times in the past players being jettisomed out of Miami very shortly after recieving a glowing endorsement.

That's what isnt cool and initiates how other players view this organization.

....ky. wolf.. I would hope that the Phins would not trade up for Tannehill either. I just think that if he really is the guy they want..They may have to.

I think that I'm GM of Cleveland. I'm doing everything I can to make it look like I'm taking Tannehill..Even if this is farthest from the truth. Ireland will either be forced to take the bait..Call the bluff, and hold his breath and wait and see..If it is me. I'm calling the bluff. I think in this instance even though I'm not familiar with Tannehill. I think the cards Cleveland holds is closer to a pair of 9's...Not a pair of aces.

@cavemanna
Good post .. I can see through their hate as well.

Good point Jeff. Also don't forget he is guaranteed to win the division until he retires since Tebow won it with an 8-8 record.

Tim Tebow in 12 games last season led his team to 6 4th Q or over time victories and 5 come from behind victories in his first year (NFL record)

Did u know QB John Elway only had 2 complete passes in his first NFL game?

Were getting Jeffied!!

Smith next to ink?

___________________________________________________

Nah....never was going to happen.

Tebow can save the Miami Dolphin franchise

otherwise nobody is going to the games

The rest is conversation

According to Mando's article, with regards to Jeff Ireland, agents....." complain of an arrogance that is baffling and approach that sometimes borders on bullying".....

Is this the type of personality that wins friends and influences people? Definitely not. And it's this arrogance that causes Ireland to think he can ask impertinent, insensitive questions, such as the one directed at then prospective draftee Dez Bryant regarding his mother's personal behavior.

In business, smoozing always outperforms gruffness. Ireland has failed to learn this, and so now, five years into his only GM experience, his ill-regarded reputation preceeds him.

QB Flynn cited the "family atmosphere" that pervaded his visit with Seattle, and how it influenced his decision to sign with them. Between the lines, one can't help but infer that a similar comfort zone was absent his visit with the Dolphins.

Mando's article mentions this lack of personal ambiance, then dismisses it with a discussion regarding Ireland's decision making, his successes versus his failures. He draws the conclusion that Ireland is not the devil after all.

No, not the devil.....just a nasty , arrogant, egotistical piece of work who has a growing reputation for saying one thing and doing another. And this reputation has become a detriment to the Dolphin organization, and its future success dealing with players and their agents, as well as team executives from the other 31 clubs, and the NFL in general.

Steven Ross has no choice but to separate himself from this growing legacy, unless he does business in a similar manner, in which case he cannot see the forest through the trees.

Ross currently doesn't give the impression of being arrogant. Clueless , however, remains a distinct possibility.

As for Ireland, he must be fired; there is no alternative if the Dolphind organization is to regain the proud stature it once held within the world of pro football.

Mando...Good review. Wish someone capable would review all the "mana from heaven" FA"s Ireland has "let slip through the net" and total up their lost value.

Your question "what would you have done differently?" Very little. But I certainly would have changed the style. His decisions have not been that bad but the man's style appears to be psycopathic. When it comes to dealing with people he would have to improve to be terrible.

Good (open) communication between Fins and media with a good PR person can bridge the gap between "reality and perception" and eliminate misunderstanding.

Fans can easily develop a negative perception of team decisions if they're kept in the dark as to why they were made.

Negativity = lower ticket sales

@Darryl Dunphy
i think thats why they signed David Garrard .. they are playing like they aren't interested in tannehill so Cleveland won't play that game. I dont think david garrard is going to make the team. he is just a insurance policy

In Tebow We Trust

Darryl I agree with you that is where we are Cleveland. They have to believe since we didn't sign Flynn we are interested in him and will probabally reach out to Ireland and say just what you said (We are taking him). Balls in Irelands court trade up or sit tight to see if Cleveland really wants him.

agreed

There's a lot of players out there who have been cut by lots of GMs, but you don't hear players around the NFL bad-mouthing GMs like this -- Ireland must not have much class.

Cut YB, make room for Smith?

david 1972 (great year sir...but a curse or a blessing)

F@CK joey porter.he is a malcontent & i personally dont give a shite what he says. sapp, differnt story though. ireland and ross are both pr nightmares,but since ireland got the job in 2011(cmon man the big EGO bought the groceries b4 that)he's done ok.his BEST move was hiring a 21st century coach from th GB Packer bloodline. His next move(his owners too)should be to defer all adult conversations to joe philbin.

Win games

Sell out the stadium

Sign Tebow while we have a chance!

We could get Tebow for 4th rounder and less than 2 million

Sign Tebow!

Darryl Dunphy, and others,

I doubt we'll have to worry about drafting Tannehill at #8. Cleveland's "super desperate too. They'll take him at #4.

Now if you really wanna see some Ireland hatred in Miami. Let him trade up to the #3 spot ahead of Cleveland to get Tannehill. Dolfans will burn him at the stake for not trading up to #2 to get RG3.

How in the hell can you trade up to the #3 spot to get Tannehill. Then tell your fans it was too expensive to trade up to the #2 spot for RG3?

Anyone connecting the dots here?

sorry phins 78 he did ask the question, my bad

Mando, nice try, I guess you have your reasons now to defend Mr. Ireland, I'm guessing you need to play nice every now and then but I'm not buying this love fest.
Unfortunately I don't have enough room to write about all of Jeff Ireland's Greatest Hits Volumes I (featuring Bill Parcells) & II but I will leave you with a list:
-Ernest Wilford
-Pat White
-Patrick Turner
-Jake Grove
-Justin Smiley
-Brandon Marshall
-Your Mom is a ProstituteGate
-SparanoGate
-Fisher
-Manning
-Flynn

And there are more of course but I will give you one move that represents everything Ireland stands for and why we are where we are: The failure to sign Eric Winston.
The outstanding RT that became a cap victim from the Texans is one of those players who are the exception to the rule when it comes to "building via draft" mode. At 28, from the U, loves the city, wanted to play on grass, is a player that would have filled a position of need and that is hard to draft for b/c 6'7" 345 lbs specimens are not available like that all the time.

Winston came to Miami first, and by all accounts he was ridiculously low balled. At one moment I thought his agent was asking for the impossible but when I heard KC's Scott Pioli signed him to the tune of $22 million for 4 years I was in disbelief, either Pioli was a genius or Ireland a moron, it turns out to be both. Pioli, who by the way knows a thing or two about building an OLine, I mean we see it front seat every year when Brady polishes his nails before throwing the ball to torch our secondary; made the move Ireland could not pull despite of Winston wanting to come here to a place -I may add- where players do not pay state taxes, in a year prior to negotiate Jake Long's contract that at this point we will not be able to afford. The epitome of ineptitude all in one deal. That is Jeff Ireland, a nice guy perhaps (and I have doubts of that as well, I mean what kind of douche asks a player about his mother being a prostitute) but a mediocre GM at best.

Jeff Row...First off. David Garrard as a smoke screen for drafting a guy???Do you know how that sounds? That is the most transparant smoke screen of all time if that was indeed the plan for the team.. Granted, the team may not have Tannehill in the plans..But Garrard isn't the reason..

Maybe I'm just trying to make my point so bad that I'm the only one that see's it this way(bad thing)..I just believe that the Browns have Colt McCoy...Colt McCoy????? They are in a worse situation then we are..And they are going to pass on Tannehill why??

Like I said earlier...I don't know much about Tannehill. For a team desperate for a quarterback he isn't good enough at 4..but he is a 8???
