The Daily Dolphin:
Two meaty Miami Dolphins Talking Points to jumpstart your Wednesday: 1. Dolphins need to find a way to keep Mike Nolan. Even though general manager Jeff Ireland is still here and Stephen Ross hopes that next season won’t be a rebuilding year, many changes are inevitably coming to the Dolphins. A new head coach will [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
Since the Miami Dolphins decided to part ways with Tony Sparano, most Dolphins fans have focused on the guy that has been left behind….Jeff Ireland. Ireland is still the Dolphins GM because he has a good relationship with Stephen Ross, who believes the Dolphins are talented enough to win soon. Well, most of the Dolphins [...]
Some Miami Dolphins fans will love this, some will hate it. Either way, a portion of the Dolphins fan base are trying to make their voices heard. FinsNation.com has started a movement to let Dolphins Owner, Stephen Ross, know exactly how they feel about keeping Jeff Ireland as the Dolphins General Manager. On New Years [...]
Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland rarely has a slip of the tongue. He has occasionally misled listeners, such as when he talked about selecting a defensive player the year the Dolphins selected left tackle Jake Long with the No. 1 pick in 2008, but Ireland generally says what he means. And when he drops hints, it is usually intended.
DAVIE, FL Tony Sparano was fired Monday as headcoach of the Miami Dolphins. The only shock was that it took so long.
Now, Dolphins fans anxiously wait to see if general manager Jeff Ireland loseshis job.
Ireland should be the next to go so that the Dolphins' house-cleaning and roadto redemption will be made complete. But apparently that's not going to happen.
The Miami Dolphins have been mired in mediocrity for too long, and a pair of Dolphins fans are angry enough to do something about it.
Before the Dolphins take on the New York Jets on New Year's Day, a plane carrying a banner exhorting team owner Stephen Ross to fire general manager Jeff Ireland will fly over Sun Life Stadium.

Miami Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland doesn’t have many slips of the tongue.
That’s something I’ve picked up during his four-year tenure in South Florida. He’ll try a couple slight of hand tricks from time-to-time, but Ireland generally says what he means.
And when he drops a hint it is usually intended.
That’s why the most revealing tell from Monday’s firing of...
There they were late Monday afternoon, announcing the end of Tony Sparanos career with the Dolphins and introducing Todd Bowles as an interim coach. There they were, discussing how the Sparano firing was a decision they made together. There they were, talking about how they will search together for the best available replacement.
In what will be one of the final Scouting Notebook's of the 2011 Season (BUT, similar, mini-pieces multiple times a week will be coming), I'll take a look at the type of football player I really don't look forward to discussing: the ESPN ratings boosters, meaning Tim Tebow. I'll take a look at what his abilities as a quarterback means to future scouting the position...
First off, here at Phins Phocus we would like to wish all the best for Tony Sparano in the future as he was a great man and someone you could respect, unfortunately he was a pretty bad NFL head coach.
We have lived through the fist pump, through the conservative play and really a complete lack of understanding how to manage a football game however Tony Sparano was still able to...
By now, you know that the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs fired their respective coaches. Grantland's Bill Barnwell did a nice job of explaining why both of these firings were essentially CYA jobs by each team's respective GM. The Dolphins are a particularly baffling case because they are remaining loyal to GM Jeff Ireland, despite Ireland's lousy track record...
The Miami Dolphins are talking to former Kansas City Chiefs president, CEO and general manager Carl Peterson about taking an executive position with the team.
The Miami Herald reported Wednesday that the team could place Peterson at the top of the food chain in football operations, even above general manager Jeff Ireland.
While Ireland would still handle day-to-day personnel duties...
Another year, another awkward press conference starring Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. Last winter, Ross sat next to Tony Sparano and G.M. Jeff Ireland to try to explain to the media why it made sense to give Sparano a contract extension despite openly going after Jim Harbaugh for the team’s head coach. (The picture of that…
