    Default Cam Wake Absent From Workouts

    Clearly not happy with his contract situation. I mean, it's not like the guy is arguably the Top Pass Rusher in the league and is only making 650,000 this year.

    Wake reached the Pro Bowl in 2010 with 16 sacks, and last year he had an aggregate of 90 sacks, QB hits, QB pressures and holding penalties drawn, according to ProFootballFocus -- by far most in the NFL. (Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers, who makes $14 million a season, was second in the NFL, with a total of 74 such plays).

    Jeff Ireland sucks.

    Why would he sign such a good player at such a low price. Only a matter of time till he got upset. How could he not see this coming.

    I disagree. Why would Ireland try to work out an extension with his best defensive player? That would be stupid. I say we let Wake go. The guy is a bum. We can always find guys in the CFL who are just as good. I mean, we got lucky once, who's to say we can't get lucky again? Ireland is a such a great talent evaluator that I'm confident he'll find someone to replace him if Wake doesn't accept whatever deal he offers him. Then, when whoever Ireland replaces him with gets to a Pro Bowl and puts up the same kind of numbers, he'll find someone else. That's what great GM's like Jeff Ireland do. That's how you win Super Bowls.

    Yeah, Ireland is a demon. He hates his players:
    Link
    Last fall, when Ricky Williams went to Baltimore to play for the Ravens, the Ireland family invited Williams' wife and children to live with them for several months while dealing with a housing situation.
    Can you imagine what kind of soulless dick offers his home to a player's family who isn't even on the team anymore?

    Give the man his money. He's one of the very few players on the team that deserves it.

    It's one thing to root for the greatest quarterback prospect ever when your team is 0-7. But when you're rooting for a guy not being hearlded as an all-time great in April before the team has even began off-season workouts, I find it in poor taste.

    I'm trying to say your sig sucks and is really stupid.

    The point is that the two sides must not be very close to an extension if La Canfora is correct.

    I don't think Ireland will let Wake walk, either. I didn't even bring his name up in the first place. But this deal NEEDS to get done.

    The same used to be said of Ricky, except it was away from business hours too.

    In other words you're rooting for more mediocrity since playoffs aren't a realistic possibility whatsoever. Have fun with that, and stop derailing a thread that's about Cam Wake. I'll keep a spot on the bandwagon open for when the Dolphins have another bad start to the season.

    Seriously though, you can't post anything here now without it turning into a Jeff Ireland thread. There's no need to jump to his defense in a thread about Cam Wake missing workouts. I'm simply making the case that he needs to get paid. ASAP.

    Because he was absent from non-mandatory practices?

    Not really.

    Because I root for my team, same as you. Only difference is I root for them with a realistic view on the team as opposed to homer view. Don't like it. Leave. Or put me on ignore. Want to discuss it any further, create a thread about it instead of derailing this one.
