« Dolphins add another DB with final pick | Main | Bryant McKinnie visit could signal legit interest, or not »

One on one with Jeff Ireland

Following the last round of the draft on Sunday, Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland agreed to speak with me privately after his open media availability.

This is how it went:

Mando: Your shining moment in this draft?

"Well, obviously I went after the player [Dion Jordan] I really wanted. That was the highlight, to go up and get the player we really wanted and really coveted and be able to get him at the price we got him was even a bonus."

Mando: Why him?

Jeff Ireland: "He jumps out at me. I don't like to compare players but we do a lot of that in our business. I've seen players like him that have great success. He reminds me of several players that have played that position. They're hard to find. The special ones are hard to find.

"And I think the guy can be special. I think that's why.

"And to follow up with your question, the draft is not only just trying to fill needs. I really don't go into the draft trying to fill this need, then this need and this need. I go into the draft building the board as equal as I can. I put the players up there that are the best football players and then marry needs into the best football players. I understand everybody thinks we have a tackle need. And I would say that's something we need to address whether it's a must or a need. But that player jumped out at me and I felt like I had to go get that player."

Mando: What are you going to do at tackle?

Jeff Ireland: "We'll see. The tackle position is an important position. It's an important position. But I feel like we have some flexibility. There are some options out there. I have some things up my sleeve that might work out. We're going to have to fill the need probably with a veteran guy on the street at some point."

Mando: At left tackle?

Jeff Ireland: "We'll see."

Mando: Why not do the trade with Kansas City for Branden Albert instead of drafting cornerback Jamar Taylor in the second round?

Jeff Ireland: "Because I didn't think it was the right thing for us."

Mando: Why?

Jeff Ireland: "Well, I'm not going into that because I'm not so sure it doesn't work it."

Mando: You mean down the road?

Jeff Ireland: "Yeah. Again, I never say never. I don't want to get into the details of that trade right now when it could or couldn't happen done down the road."

Mando: The moment during this draft you said, 'Dang it, I wish I hadn't done that?' Was it when you traded out of the 82nd pick and then had to trade back in?

Jeff Ireland: "You know, that was not a moment that I said, 'Ahh, crap.' I traded out and got the extra fours. And then there was a run. You have a certain number of players on the board and when you trade out you figure someone is going to be there. You have three or four and you think someone's going to be there. And then all of a sudden, five or six picks, boom, boom, boom, boom, guys went off. And it wasn't only in that round but there were rounds where players on our board were getting picked off like crazy. I felt like I needed to go back in there and get a player we really wanted versus settling on a player."

Excerpt from my exclusive post draft interview with Jeff Ireland.

That guy: So exactly how do you envision the offense without a left tackle this season?

Jeff: I really don't want to get into specifics of how the offense will operate - that's Coach Philbin's area of expertise. I just acquire the talent (or in the case of the LT position, not acquire it). I'm sure coach will figure something out. For example - We could run a sprint right with Tannehill every single play of the season.

Unless they are planning to use Marcus Thigpen in the slot. He sure has the quickness for it. Hands?

Ireland and Philbin are in a quandry re the RT and LT spots. They don't know yet if Dallas Thomas can start at LT, maybe he can. If so, J Martin stays at RT and OL problem solved? Then again, Martin not so good last year at RT.

Or if J. Martin comes back improved and stronger can he start at LT? Then who plays RT? Jerry? Wheatman?

And yet they don't want to pay big, long-term money to either Winston or Albert.

That's a quandry.

Where did I ever say anything even remotely about my opinions being "infallible?"

See? This is the problem with formats such as this. You simply disagree with an opinion and it almost immediately (and predicatably) devolves into a personal pissing match.

My examples that there is NOT any inherent media 'bias' towards OR against particular teams? Having lived in a ton of different cities and hearing fans express EXACTLY the same sentiments in all of them. Now, let me ask you: When you hear the same thing over and over everywhere do you not tend to start thinking maybe this is just a silly falsehood that fans have some weird desire to believe (even if I understand the psychology behind it)?

Because otherwise (if you accept it as Gospel) then apparently these media guys must be biased against EVERY team.

Does that make sense to anyone?

How can the Dolphins get rid of S.Ross.When Ross is the owner of the team.HELLO!!!!!!

Soooo the people complaining about wallace obviously didnt see the field shrink for our O last year with no wr speed. Big ben made serviceable wr's look like stars thanks to wallace taking up attention. Hartline ,gibson, keller,sims will have a feast in the middle while wallace is taking a safety and a corner down the field with him. Ireland could trade a Pb&J for fitzgerald and it still wouldn't be a good move to the haters

I get what you're saying, and ya your comments did come off that way to me (though could be the format). Though you jumped on it just because I disagreed...

if you remember the Jets first of the 2 playoff years the Colts laid down and rested all there starters, Manning ect..so did the Bengals the final week. otherwise they would not have even made the playoffs

btw, Thigpen is another good pickup from the CFL by Ireland. So were Bess and Devlin as UDFAs. Now, this year, JI has to prove he can consistently draft Players that can translate into the NFL.

And just to be a bit more specific, I've lived in Miami, Washington, D.C., Boston, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Austin (definitely Cowboys country).

There was not a single one of those cities where fans did not believe the 'media' (announcers, networks, etc.) was biased against their teams. Not one. You heard it constantly. Just as in ALL of them you'd hear the equally silly thesis that the 'refs are out to get us.'

This is just the psychology of fans everywhere. But there is no factual basis to any of it.

For all the people thinking we will be worse this season than last lets look at what's happening on the team.

1. Year two of new play book on offense.
2. Year two of Tannehill's development.
3. Defensive shake-up to match year two defensive scheme.
4. Upgrade at CB (IMO) from last year.
5. Upgrade at WR (IMO) from last year.
6. Upgrade at LB (IMO) from last year.

That's just some of the things that could work out well for the team. At least this season it looks like we can use a three or "gasp" a four receiver set. Last year we couldn't even find a third receiver.

Now there are still are weakness on the team (O-line, FS, maybe RB if Miller and others don't pan out) but all in all we look stronger than last year. I predicted 3-13 last season and was pleasantly surprised by 7-9 in year one of a complete rebuild. I expect a wining season this year even though right now our schedule looks pretty tough.

I get what you're saying, and ya your comments did come off that way to me (though could be the format). Though you jumped on it just because I disagreed...

Sorry if it came across that way, but it was (and is) just general observation on my part about a commonly voiced opinion rather than a specific retort to a specific post.

No hard feelings at all. Gotta run but take care!

You close to the line of scrimmage on a middle route, that ball is coming to you at a hundred mph. You better have good hands.

Posted by: Like It Really Is | April 29, 2013 at 11:37 AM

I agree with fans being paranoid. I'm sure that is the case everywhere. Though I do think the media is biased towards more popular teams, just my opinion.

have a good one

Like It Really Is....

Let me be serious for a second....

I also have lived in many different cities (planning a move from Northern VA. to Hawii as we speak....

and I have lived in serval differnt countries as well.

Being a football fan...i gravitate to places where football fans hang out...and usually that is the basis for the corcle of friends that I will most likely hang around during my time @ any given spot....

So...yes...JUST about EVERY fan of (insert team name here) that didn't win the SB (I count 31 of them) thinks there team didn't/doesn't get a fair shot from the media or refs....

Balimore was among the MOST adimant that I had been around...but the SKINS fans due it too....and so do the fans of EVERY other team I have come across...

my point....

YOU don't really have one...you didn't reveal some great REVALATION to the blog that EVERY other team feels the same way we do...that the believe they are jilted by the media....and refs on occasion....

the MAJORIT of fans feel that way....thats why we are fans....FANS by the vry definitions means BIAS to ONE TEAM or ANOTHER...IE....YOUR TEAM....so if things to go YOUR TEAM'S way....then yes...FANS feel some wort of way about it....Blame the refs...Blame the media....blame yourself for not wearing your lucky socks....cause the TEAM won when you were wearing them last week....

Again...

my point is you have no point....you merely wanted to argue....and then pin someone into a corner...CommonSense tried to reason with you....and BOOM.....congratulations....but your post has really proved nothing....

First off, good article Armando.
Second. This left Tackle argument is getting a little ridiculous. I'm tired of everyone thinking Left Tackle is the key to everything, it is not.
Ravens Left Tackle rated 27th last year
Green Bay 33 out of 35
Jets 14th out of 35
Jacksonville 8 out of 35

Left Tace is important but not the cure all and considering that the WCO deploys a quick drop and release, it is not a requirement to have a super, elite, #1 tackle.

The NUTCRACKER, we can get rid of Stephen Ross, quit showing up & supporting this BUM! Same w/ Jeffery Loria!!! GO BRONCOS, they know what Wes Welker means to a team!!!

Hey Glenn - go check the roster of your favorite team - the Jets. This Dolphins is easily more talented than the 2011 team. Way more team speed and the most important factor - Philbin is weeding out the malcontents. Comparing Tannehill with Henne is ridiculous - Tannehill went 4 or 5 games in a row last year without throwing a pick, as a rookie - Henne couldn't get through 4 or 5 series without throwing one up for grabs. Now that Tannehill has some weapons, he's going to take off.

Guess my post was to late....

I agree on that Darkoak. I am not sure if the LBs are better (just cause I'm not familiar), from what I've heard that seems to be the case. If not still younger, cheaper, faster, and have seen a turnover.

OL not soo worried about it. Don't forget Long wasn't very good last year. Martin didn't do great either, but he was a rookie. As bobbyd12 points out LT isn't the be all end all. Teams with highest paid LT usually have the fewest wins.

Posted by: Bobbyd12 | April 29, 2013 at 11:49 AM


EXACTLY, MARTIN WILL BE FINE...

Bobbyd12 - I agree 100% - the Steelers won a Super Bowl with Max Starks at LT - hardly a Pro Bowl tackle - the Ravens won with 100 year old Bryant Mckinney, who wouldn't even beat out Jonathon Martin this year so...we'll see where it goes - there's plenty of time to figure it out.

Fatty Parcells,

My favorite team is the Dolphins. I have lived in South Florida my whole life and I only root for them. Although, I can see that my post may cause some belief that I may not be a fan of the team, it is exactly the opposite. I was just pointing out the similarities between the 2 seasons. And yes, you can compare Henne to Tannehill...Who else are you going to compare between the 2 seasons?

Let me ask you this, what starting lineup would you rather have on offense?

2011
Quarterbacks
Chad Henne
Running Backs
Reggie Bush
Daniel Thomas
Wide Receivers
Davone Bess
Clyde Gates
Brian Hartline
Brandon Marshall
Tight Ends
Anthony Fasano

or
2013
Quarterbacks
Ryan Tannehill
Running Backs
Lamar Miller
Daniel Thomas
Wide Receivers
Brandon Gibson
Rishard Matthews
Brian Hartline
Mike Wallace
Tight Ends
Dustin Keller

Obviously I'd rather have Tannehill then Henne, but I think the case can be made that the 2011 offensive roster is better than what we have now.

Respectfully yours,

Glenn

instead....the move HARDLY gets mentioned all weekend....

The FINS need to win to make the jack @ss media types eat crow....

Posted by: Kris | April 29, 2013 at 09:59 AM

Great point and I want to add to it. The only person I really heard a lot from about the move was Gruden. Gruden never hates on picks but he was beside himself on this one.

And what I can't understand is this. Miami has a major need at the pass rush position, one of 8 players that is said to have the potential to be elite is Jordan, the only pass rusher who was pegged by most mocks to go in the top 5 of the draft. So why in the heck is ANYONE critical of this pick when the Dolphins came out ahead on value points over the Raiders? IT MAKES NOOOOO SENSE AT ALL.

Where is the story telling us about the UDFA's

Just read LT Bryant Mckinnie is visting fins today. Maybe they will sign him and Winston to create the ultimate competition with the younger guys.

Mando: nice interview; did Tyson Clabo possibility at tackle ever come up ?

Guys, on the bias conversation. Here's my opinion at where the biases lie.

It has nothing to do with city to city. It's all about kissing the a#$ of the winners, ignoring the mediocres, and crapping all over the bad teams. That's just the way it is because the media has to sell their product. A LOT of people are bandwagon fans, too many to count. They will follow whatever team is doing well and the media feeds them what they want.

And even in the case of crapping on the bad teams, it's smart. You're going to sell more product/get more attention from the fans of said bad teams if you talk bad about them. People want to stand up for their team so it makes sense to be critical for two reasons, those teams deserve the criticism and the harder you criticize the more you draw fans to your paper,tv show, etc.

Just ask Armando how negative blogs work. The guy simply posted "Daunte Culpepper, discuss" one time when we were all mad about the Phins and their decision. The blog got tons of hits! Haha

We totally screwed up the Jake Long spew the networks were all set to go into by drafting Jordan instead of Johnson...that pissed them off that they didn't think of it...

again the only ones who loved the move was Ron Jawarski and Daniel Jeramiah

Charlie Caserly had Jordon as his number 1 defensive player also..

Still no Left tackle of quality(Jonathan Martin was a doormat last year) and no Tight End of any worth.Plenty for Ireland to do I reckon.

There was not a single one of those cities where fans did not believe the 'media' (announcers, networks, etc.) was biased against their teams. Not one. You heard it constantly. Just as in ALL of them you'd hear the equally silly thesis that the 'refs are out to get us.'

This is just the psychology of fans everywhere. But there is no factual basis to any of it.

Like It Really Is,

sorry but I disagree. I watched every one of the 1st and 2nd round picks on the NFL Network, Thursday and Friday night. Leading up to our 2nd round pick, every draft selection was discussed even if for just a few minutes and the coverage would switch from the panel to the actual announcement of the pick. When we were on the clock, the panel decided to have a 10 minute discussion about the Jets 2nd round pick, Geno Smith, the Jets circus etc, completely ignoring our pick, any discussion of our pick and the Bengals pick after ours... It's so obvious, no love for the Dolphins. I got so pissed, I turned off the TV and listened to a local am radio station covering the Cowboys draft which actually discussed each teams pick as well as the Cowboys picks. Until the Fins are winning in a big way, we will continue to be ignored. Going forward, I will not watch the draft on a major network again until they at least offer a reasonable amount of time to my teams 2nd round pick. I don't think that's too much to ask.

"This perception that Dolphins first round pick Dion Jordan was a reach for Miami is about as absorb as it gets
Since January this dynamic athlete, but unpolished pass rusher was viewed as a top 5 talent."

Most people debated whether Jordan or Alabama's Dee Milliner were the top defensive players in the 2013 NFL draft.

"Jordan's metrics, from a size, speed, strength ratio were all where they needed to be."

"Jordan was one of the four players the Kansas City Chiefs considered with the No. 1 overall pick."

"Nobody expected him to get past the Philadelphia Eagles, who had the No. 4 pick and was coached by his Oregon head coach."

"But all of a sudden the Dolphins reached for him by trading up to get the No. 3 pick, and ripping Oakland off in trade value by coming ahead with 500 points in value." (retweet)

We totally screwed up the Jake Long spew the networks were all set to go into by drafting Jordan instead of Johnson...that pissed them off that they didn't think of it...
again the only ones who loved the move was Ron Jawarski and Daniel Jeramiah
Charlie Caserly had Jordon as his number 1 defensive player also..

I think Ireland did a good job of addressing needs for this year & beyond. I have been saying this draft was about future years. The offense needed the biggest overhall & he did it in FA because they are experienced & can produce right away instead of drating them & waiting for them to develop.

The D had enough good pieces to be good this year but, it needed some rebuilding as well. Especially the Secondary. But, just look at who was drafted:

Jordan with Odrick being a FA soon

Jenkins with Misi being a FA soon. Most "analysts" project jenkins to be starter material in a year or 2 and is much more athletic than Misi. He starts off as a ST player which eliminates the need for spitler who is awful.

Patterson & Marshall are both FA this year or next & we drafted 2 potential starters at CB & 1 sleeper(jones) to play the slot..

Thomas - with Incognito & Jerry bbeing FA's this year.

The Florida RB due to Thomas being a FA soon & him being utter garbage.

This draft was about cheaply replacing expiring contracts forthcoming. Don't expect most of the FA's the next 2 years be signed but rather with Jones & Pouncey the exceptios. They'll be allowed to leave like Long & Smith.

Overall, a B+ offseason from someone who is not a fan of our GM. But, I think he did what needed to be done.

Well, Ansah is a similar type of phenomenal talent but without the versatility.

Jeff Ireland: "You know, that was not a moment that I said, 'Ahh, crap.' I traded out and got the extra fours. And then there was a run. You have a certain number of players on the board and when you trade out you figure someone is going to be there. You have three or four and you think someone's going to be there. And then all of a sudden, five or six picks, boom, boom, boom, boom, guys went off. And it wasn't only in that round but there were rounds where players on our board were getting picked off like crazy. I felt like I needed to go back in there and get a player we really wanted versus settling on a player."


Mando,

Wow!!! Very interesting that Ireland would say that. Not that it matters now but I wish I could see our draft board. Aside from making the trade up to get Dion Jordan, I'm just curious who else we REALLY wanted in this draft.

With that said on paper (other than LT) Ireland still found a way to address the most pressing needs which were adding CB's, adding a pass rusher to go with Wake, adding depth on the O-line, adding a TE, adding a RB, & adding a Kicker to compete with Carpenter.

Ireland and Philbin are in a quandry re the RT and LT spots. They don't know yet if Dallas Thomas can start at LT, maybe he can. If so, J Martin stays at RT and OL problem solved? Then again, Martin not so good last year at RT.

Or if J. Martin comes back improved and stronger can he start at LT? Then who plays RT? Jerry? Wheatman?

And yet they don't want to pay big, long-term money to either Winston or Albert.

That's a quandry.

MJZ,

After everything Ireland has done to help Tannehill this off season (Wallace, Keller, Gibson, re-signing Hartline, drafting Sims & Gillislee) I'm VERY confident that the LT will be addressed. At this point I believe it will be either Albert or McKinnie.

Agree, LOL.

Mando, why not give Ireland a bottle of milk too, since you babied him so much with your questions. Why not ask him why the hell he gave away Davon Bess? Why not ask him how on earth he could let Reggie Bush walk away? Why not ask questions we really want to hear him address instead of the usual, "Tell me what you like about this draft." Come on. You're getting worse than Cole.

Bam!!!! Ireland is not messing around this year.

"NFL.com's Jeff Darlington reports free agent LT Bryant McKinnie is visiting the Dolphins on Monday.
The news comes less than an hour after the Miami Herald reported the Dolphins had "NO" interest in the 33-year-old left tackle. McKinnie is aging and has baggage to spare, but is coming off a strong playoff run for the Ravens, and is easily the top left tackle on the open market. He'd be a much better option on Ryan Tannehill's blindside than shaky second-year pro Jonathan Martin. Adding McKinnie would allow the Dolphins to develop Martin on the right side for another year before readdressing the situation next offseason.

Shorter Jeff Ireland:

I haven't got a clue what I just did, but I sure talk purty.

I think Ireland has not finished upgrading the whole OL for this Year.

Fireland,

I don't believe Ireland is on the hot seat this year. As a fan I believe that he SHOULD be fired if we don't make the playoffs BUT I starting to think that Ross pressed the reset button on Ireland after Philbin got hired.

BTW--You might want to start embracing the team we have instead of crying about Reggie Bush who was a 'stop gap' for us @ RB & is now about to play for his 3rd team going into his 8th season.

we are stacked at RB now....much better than Bush...

Although there are some personnel moves yet to be made, the majority of team building for 2013 is done (baring a major FA signing or trade).

The Dolphins were 27th in offense last year. Which is, to be blunt, horrid.

The Dolphins spent a lot of the draft on defense, although they did use very late picks on a TE, RB, and Kicker.

The Dolphins did more to address the offense in free agency.

Wallace is an elite talent, but not super elite. He's still a good signing.

Keller is coming off a season with lots of injuries and is under a one-year conctract because of it. He only started five games last year and caught less than 30 passes. This is a 'budget' signing. The Dolphins should have signed a better prospect who did not have such an injury history.

Gibson's production to date is not super impressive, and the Rams (who desperately wanted new WRs and TEs) did not make a serious effort to resign him.

Hartline caught one TD pass last year.

Bess was traded.

The highest drafted offensive playmaker (other than Tannehill) still on the roster is Egnew.

The Dolphins probably have a better defense than in 2012. They should have better special teams and a new kicker.

Even with Wallace, they may not be much better on offense unless Tannehill can bring his level of play up significantly.

The Dolphins did not draft any playmakers in 2012 except of Egnew and they did not draft any this year (except for Sims in the 4th round). This is odd behavoir if a team really believes they have a very promosing young QB.

The offense remains a major concern even with the signing of Wallace.

we are stacked at RB now....much better than Bush...

Wally,

I like it on paper now we need to see it happen on the field. Although my first choice was Stepfan Taylor I thought the Gillislee pick was phenomenal b/c we can't trust Thomas to A) Stay healthy & B) Hold on to the football. The combo of Miller & Gillislee could be dynamic & we also have Thigpen in the mix who I believe can more than just an explosive KR/PR.

Sigh, you have posted the same mularky for days. Enugh already.

A. Bess did not fit. All Philbins WR's, as in GB, are asked to play every position. Bess could only play 1 = BUH BYE.

B. Keller & Gibson were also added in FA. Not just wallace. Both are very good & give tanny a good complement of weapons.

This team can compete this year but wouldn't with a bunch of rookies. this is why Offense was addressed in FA & the D, which had good pieces,was fortefied in the draft.

Please, take your hate glasses off. You shouldn't be posting if you don't even understand what the team is trying to accomplish.

Many of the first rnd Dolphins picks in the recent past were at most 2nd rounders. Namely, J Orrick, J Allen, R. Brown, V. Davis. J Long didn't last enough, while Pounceys is something to see. Same with Thill. As second rounders concern, they have been awful. Henne, Smith, White, etc etc
On the other hand, many free-agent moves have been terrible.
So, it's more than natural that we rise serious doubts on Irelands performance this offseason. I hope I'm wrong, and the Dolphins give a step forward the upcoming season. The schedule is tough though.

Hmmmm, so Armando recently tweets that the Dolphins have "NO interest" in Bryant McKinnie. Meanwhile, multiple outlets are reporting that McKinnie is visiting w/ the 'Fins today. Something stinks, and methinks it's Mando's reporting and sources...

LOL,

Well said. It's up to Tannehill now. I REALLY like what Ireland has added to give him a chance this year. Ireland is going to sign a LT & I expect the O-line to be better than last year. Why??? B/c Martin has put on some bulk & should improve @ RT & if he doesn't we can play Garner. Jerry has come into OTA's in good shape for the first time in years & we added another Guard in Dallas Thomas (most likely a Guard but is versatile) to increase the level of competition.

good one, I think Ireland trade with KC for a next year picks may be < 2 o 3 round

AT THE END OF THE DAY WHAT ROUND YOU WERE SELECT IS IRRELEVANT.

ALL THAT MATTERS IS CAN U BALL.

U WOULD THINK THEY WOULD PLAY WITH A CHIP ON THEIR SHOULDERS.

HECK, BOTH RB's RUN 4 3 and NO CORNER OR SAFETY IN THE LEAGUE CAN COVER
MIKE WALLACE.

NFL.com's Jeff Darlington writes that McKinnie will visit the Dolphins on Monday.

Mando says there is NO interest.

Omar as no mention of McKinnie at all.

Interesting to see the differences in the media. I hope he is in town. He brings a sense of NASTY to him that I like. Even if it's only for 1-2 years. His experience would make an impact day one.

Bryant McKinnie Is At Dolphins HQ. Do Your Job Jeff.

B. McKinnie Actually Went To PBs

You Don't Have To Waste A Pick.

He Actually Wants To Play With T-Hill.

This Has To Be The Most Obvious Signing. For So Many Reasons.

Cut

Incognito
Carpenter
D. Patterson

Use That Cap Space To Sign McKinnie For 1 Year. If Albert Is Worth 5Yr/$45M. McKinnie Is Worth At Least 2 Years /$10Mil.

Only four more months until another disappointing season. I can't wait.

Hey, MikeW, you like our daughters down here? They are all kinds white, medium, dark but all beautiful. But you be careful now, they will take your $ and run.

LOL,

Some on this board just cannot stand a point of view that is different from those they hold, so they attack with name calling and personal insults.

Those fans who think the offense is a mess have just as valid a point as those who insist on wearing aqua colored glasses and seeing only the illusion of possible success in the future.

You say that rookies cannot not help? Really? Consider the Colts: They had two rookie TEs who caught 71 passes and 5 TDs. They rookie WR caught 50 passes and 7 TDs.

But, other than Wallace, the Dolphins did not do much on paper to improve the offensive playmaker positions.

Keller is coming off a season of injuries. Normally players with injury histories add to those histories.

Gibson was not resigned by the Rams - a team that needed good WR help. Maybe there were other factors.

Insofar was what the team is trying to do -- it's not treason to disagree with the so-called plan.

The Dolphins had a bad offense last year. They did not do nearly enough, in this fan's opinion, to address that.


How can u be known as a great defensive basketball player if u are gay?

No one will let u guard them closely.
