Very good point.
Geez, you say something wrong around here about a player getting arrested and you get roasted. Why doesn't the GM get the same benefits on this?
Who didn't Miami get?
* Bill Cowher - I think the guy is happy in the booth. He's been out of coaching for 5 years and has not filled any open coaching jobs.
* Jeff Fisher - He wanted final say-so on personnel, and the word around the NFL is that he does not do a good job in that capacity. I agree with Ross on this one.
* Jim Harbaugh - He stayed close to home and chose the 49ers. Nothing wrong with that.
* Peyton Manning - Not sure why he didn't want to play for Miami. A lot of speculation is that he was unfamiliar with anyone on the team.
* Flynn - It has to be about the money. Flynn wanted to come to the Dolphins and his pop had a positive report on the meeting. If it is money, maybe Ireland and Philbin graded him at less than what the Seahawks offered him. If that is the case, we will have to see how the 2012 season plays out to see if we were saved from another Kolb situation.
And even more good points...
However, I will point out that Jeff Irelands debut as a GM has been anything but smooth..
He has made his way into the media way too much if you ask me.
The Dez Bryant thing, then the deal with Harbaugh and leaving his HC in limbo while the owner tried to replace him, which could be understood because Ross is the boss. But then whole Kyle Orton mess, then he was in the middle of the Fisher deal, Manning met with the coaching staff but blew off the FO, and now you have the Flynn rumors, and other players are speaking out and saying the same thing Crowder said..
So while I take everything as media hype, there are an awful lot of things pointing in the same direction...
I think we can pretty much say goodbye to Jeff Ireland if this season doesnt go well.
