MIAMI - 2009: Jeff Ireland of the Miami Dolphins poses for his 2009 NFL headshot at photo day in Miami, Florida. (Photo by NFL Photos)
New Years eve, December 31st the beginning of new hope and excitement for a new year. Yesterday the Dolphins season ended and now like many other people around the world are hoping for a new year full of new beginnings, excitement and success. The Dolphins finished 2012 in embarrassing fashion being shutout and proving they still have a ways to go before becoming a real NFL contender. The Dolphins are set up with money to spend, plenty of draft picks including the 12th pick overall however there is still the murky situation of whether to trust GM Jeff Ireland or not. The Dolphins go into the offseason with a need at WR, a seem TE, a pass rusher and depth at corner back and some help on the offensive line which has proven to be inconsistent at times.   We will have articles throughout the offseason with some of our favourite free agents and draft prospects trying to give some guidance along the way. It should be a very very interesting offseason with Jake Long, Brian Hartline, Sean Smith and Reggie Bush all set to become potential free agents. Time will tell which Dolphins have seen their last days in aqua and orange and which new players Jeff Ireland sees fit to help this roster. One thing is for sure and that's that it will be a very busy and interesting off season. Happy and healthy New Years to all our readers, all the best this upcoming year. Here is to hoping 2013 is the Dolphins year !
