Don't be a sheep.
    No matter what kind of research I do as a fan, I'm still not qualified to know who is a better coach than Tony Sparano. Who is a better GM than Jeff Ireland. Who is a better QB than Chad Henne. I just see that these guys aren't/weren't performing/putting a winning team on the field.

    As much as I'd love to quit my job and devote my entire life playing catch up to these guys who have been involved with the NFL most of their professional lives, I don't have that luxury.

    So, I guess I'm a sheep. Even though I know I'm not qualified, I enjoy speculating on who might be the best options at coach / gm / QB / etc. And that's all any of us fans do. Any of you who think you're doing differently are either a. kidding yourselves; or b. very generous to spend your time educating the rest of us fans while depriving the NFL of your valuable and professional insight.

    Don't get me wrong, Paul. It's ok to call out fans who make stupid statements. And all of us say stupid things over the course of thousands of posts. But to suggest a fan can't criticize a team without having professional knowledge of who their replacement should be is a little unrealistic, in my humble opinion.

    You're taking things a little too literally. I said do their own research. I didn't say, go out and become a certified research specialist.
    And now a moment with Cameron Wake...

    It takes about five seconds. First, a get off. Then a bend and a dip. And lastly, an explosion right into the quarterback.

    Ok, I get that. In your opinion what constitutes as doing research? What kind of research should a fan have to do before they have earned the right to criticize a guy like Jeff Irealand?

    Depends on the issue that one is being critical about. If it has to do with not going after a high priced free agent, for example, know how much the free agent is asking for and how much cap room the Dolphins have to spend, not just on a particular position but the total team. Don't come out and say, "we should sign this guy or else Jeff Ireland should be fired"...

    Fair enough. I guess all I'm trying to say here is that as fans we should be able to criticize a guy like Ireland without knowing exactly who his replacement should be or even if he should be fired. Even if we're wrong sometimes. 4 or 5 games into the season I think we all thought Reggie Bush was a big mistake. Now, it looks like maybe Ireland knew something most of us didn't.

    Ross and Ireland bumble another of their top coaching prospects and you think that's reason to bump this thread?
