I think at this stage a specific thread for the Dolphins is warranted.
The events of the last few weeks have turned the Fins from a team with a shot at the playoffs in 2012 (with the right moves), to looking like the most incompetent team in the league.
As a reminder, we have missed out on Fisher, Manning, Flynn, Smith and Winston, whilst trading our best WR to Chicago for a handful of beans. The only additions have been a backup safety and David Garrard. The way we cut Bell was also fairly classless.
Unless I’m missing something, Jeff Ireland is slowly running the team into the ground and has no obvious strategic plan in place. Our offense was poor last year and with no elite QB and WR we could be even worse in 2012. Help in the draft isn’t guaranteed as our draft record isn’t exactly stellar.
We always live in hope but does hope in this instance mean we stink so bad that Ireland is fired and we get the 1st pick next year?? Bar an excellent draft we are looking at a very long season…again!
As it’s the 1st post I thought I’d include some Twitter accounts that are worth following as a Dolphins fan:
