    Well, I was reserving judgment of our front office until now. I thought the media was blowing the Dolphins dysfunction out of proportion. Maybe it was just b/c the dysfunction was relegated to the FO and coaches for the most part...Sparano, Harbaugh and Fisher it didn't bother me too much. There was the Dez situation, but "hey, it was Dez," not the most trustworthy source.

    But clearly Miami's "vibe" or lack-thereof is affecting player decisions to come here. Don't think there was ever a better fit than Flynn to Miami. The "vibe" of an organization almost always flows down from the top:

    Peter King ‏ @SI_PeterKing
    Talked to Flynn. Said a big factor in Sea over Mia was vibe in the building in Seattle: "The coaches, the staff--they were fantastic.'

    lmao

    Well if the guy who thought he was worth more than what we'd pay said the "vibe" was the reason then it must be true.

    The "coaches"? You mean the same coach that was your OC and helped you get the big contracT?

    I call a bunch of BS.

    Ofcourse he's going to say that, they obviously wanted him more, and he is now a Seahawk so he is going to talk them up. He would of same thing if it went the other way.

    I don't put too much stock in this quote. He just signed a big contract and isn't going to say "I signed with Seattle b/c they money was better" He is going to go with the "Team really impressed me", "Pete has a ton of energy" angle. It's rare an when athlete says they took a contract for the money, which is kinda what Flynn's dad hinted at.

    Ireland does come off as a tightwad douchebag.

    Perception trumps reality. We better start winning soon or we are the new 70's- 80's Tampa Bay Bucs.

    I don't think this team will start winning until the tightwad douchebag is fired.

    is everyone allowed to call you ireland's jilted ex lover? You know as someone who *****es as much as you do, when someone disrespects you, you would figured you'd stop antagonizing people just because you didn't get what you wanted.

    Flynn might be feeling hurt that his ex OC didn't want him as badly as Seattle did, similarly to how Taylor Mays felt jilted when Pete Carroll passed him over in the draft. If we didn't want the guy enough to sign him for a 26.0M contract, we shouldn't be criticized for not being excited about his visit.

    If we DID seem heavily excited but didn't sign him, that's when I'd be concerned.

    Call me whatever you want. This isn't about what I want. It's about the Front Office doing a horrible job and it's having a very negative affect on the Miami Dolphins. If you want to ignore that, go right ahead.

    I loved you on 'The Walking Dead'.

    By the way, you guys should peep Ryan Clark's recent tweets about why he didn't sign with Miami.

    It's owned by Domains by Proxy. I think it's a company that hides the identity of the domain holder but I am really not sure.

    Last year you complained we didnt take a QB in the first round regardless of who he was.
    This year you're already complaining about our "failure" at the QB position despite the possibility existing of us using our 1st on a QB.
    You see the dichotomy here?

    I'm a fan of logic and factual info, which clearly makes me spend a lot of time conflicting with what you post and the rumors and spin that the garbage media puts out there.

    I've been critical of this FO when I feel they make a dumb decision, just like I will if they do sign Smith and pay him starter's money.

    Great comic but the writing and a lot of the actors on the show are pathetic, imo.

    Clearly you're just as upset as I am with what's gone on today. You're just reacting differently. I'm sorry to you and anyone else who took offense to the fanboy comment. No need to keep escalating this.

    I wasn't too terribly surprised or disappointed hearing that Flynn chose Seattle over Miami. Maybe even a little relieved. But, now with rumors swirling re; Smith, man now I'm not too sure. Just hoping that doesn't happen and that we target Tannehill at #8.

    I hope we do that, Todd. I really do. It's something we haven't done in over a dozen years. It's just more a problem with Ireland going hard after free agent targets and failing. He's doing a poor job as GM, IMHO. But if he finds a franchise QB in the draft, I'll eat my crow. Fair enough?

    He said no one wants to sign with Miami because of Ireland, including him. Said he took less money because of him.

    It seems like we're hearing more and more NFL players who don't like Jeff Ireland. And Clark is a pretty unbiased viewpoint. This is a problem.

    I'm an empiricist and a reasonable person. When faced with overwhelming evidence I have to relent against my personal feelings/opinion. Jeff Ireland is a cancer on this team.
