Saints need speed

Looking towards the draft and to the history of the last few years there is some trend that I noticed: speed! Some of the recent draft picks the Saints have made were speedy guys, and not just a bit speedy, but very very fast. With the arrival of Jeff Ireland that might change, though. However the speed guys drafted have been all on offense. That tells me Sean Payton loves speed...

New Orleans Saints: Is Jeff Ireland the Man for the Job?

The New Orleans Saints are trying to put the 2014 season behind them, and begin to look for positive structure throughout the organization.

Saints hire former Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland as college scout

Ireland was in the middle of the Incognito/Martin scandal as the Dolphins GM and received a ton of bad press for his handling in that situation before eventually getting fired. As a college scout, though, all he has to do is evaluate talent. Could end up being a decent addition to the scouting staff. It’s not just Dennis Allen joining Saints. Former Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland is...

Say it ain’t so Joe, say it ain’t so

Since 1996 the Miami Dolphins have been on a slow steady decline. One word can sun up this franchise, Dysfunctional. When Joe Philbin was hired, he was expected to bring stability and get the turn the franchise around.  Unfortunately, he has done anything but that.  Since Philbin has been at the helm, we have witnessed the banishment of team leaders who opposed him, there...

Miami Dolphin GM is the Key to Resurgence

The waning interest of Miami Dolphin fans is understandable when dissecting the performance of recent GMs. It would be foolish to place the entire burden on a single individual, so Jeff Ireland is merely a guinea pig for the ineptitude of the past as the Dolphins fell from grace. It started way before Jeff, but he's the most recent donkey for this example. (Donkey is kinder than...

Será la prueba de fuego para el nuevo Gerente General (GM) Dennis Hickey.

For a change, Dolphins' coach & GM see eye-to-eye

BY NICK ST. DENISThe Miami Dolphins' head coach and general manager getting along? Weird. The well-documented disconnect between former Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland and current coach Joe Philbin came to a head in 2013, as Philbin made Ireland's rookie class by far the least active in all the NFL.That was only one piece of evidence, though it was a pretty telling one.Ireland, who reportedly...

The Miami Dolphins need better roster management.

The last couple of years the Dolphins have seemed to be a step behind. Whether it be a GM, coach, or even a player the Dolphins have waited too long to pull the trigger. For example, last year the Baltimore Ravens traded for left Tackle Eugene Monroe because of their poor offensive line play. This happened on October 1st, at the time the Dolphins had arguably the worst offensive...
