    Judge as you please
    Wrench will say anything to discredit Ireland. Next thing he's going to say is that Solia took a hometown discount.

    Its been reported many times when they signed that Soliai and Wake both took lesser deals to stay in Miami for family and such.

    ROFL at derek picking the better players as Ireland gets.

    Keep digging that hole derek.

    Wrench:

    "Yes Ireland drafted Mike Pouncey but Pouncey has a twin brother who made the pro bowl the year before. So that wasn't a hard pick."

    "Ireland had nothing to do with re-signing Wake and Solia. They both took a home town discount."

    "Yes Ireland traded for Reggie Bush but we all know Sparano was the one who wanted him"

    "Yes Ireland signed Kevin Burnett but we all know he wanted to come here"

After making $12.5 million as the Dolphins franchise player in 2011, Soliai re-signed a two-year deal worth $8.15 million in base salary rather than truly explore free agency.

    I left it all up to my agent [David Canter], Soliai said. I took the offseason to spend time with my family. I really didnt get to think about it until my agent gave me a call to tell me who wanted to talk to me. I just wanted to have fun with my family.

    I wanted to stay, he continued. Thats my main goal was to stay here. I started here. I started slow. I like how Im going right now, Im going well.

    I didn't lie about it, its 100% truth. He had six teams who wanted him and he took less to stay.

    You can kiss Ireland's *** all you would like, nothing he has done has helped this team. You even have said he is average and still do it. Its mind blowing.

    im not sure how Randall is a bust

    most of the players Wrench is claiming to be BP picks arent BP picks but Ireland picks. their is no doubt that Ireland has been better for this team than Parcells. even in the 2 yrs he is claiming Ireland got players Ireland has done better. i dont see a franchise QB in BP's list not to mention Ireland's list has 2 playmakers in it to BPs one based on the lists given and Ireland has retained Wake and Soliai

    my fave one godolphins is this one

    Jeff Ireland re-signed Solia. And of course he wanted to stay here. Who re-signs somewhere they don't want to stay.

    doesnt matter if he wanted to stay Ireland still retained him. Ireland also has us set up for a huge 2013 offseason

    If this franchise was as dysfunctional and screwed up as the media and majority fans make it out to be then nobody would be taking hometown discounts like Wake and Soliai did.

    I'm so glad that are only two delusional fans on here who think Ireland is such a great GM.

    Gives me hope for the fan base,

    They wanted to stay close to their family. It has nothing to do with the team.

    I remember Soliai taking the home team discount for family reasons after all the hype of him being a high-sought after FA.

    Wake was also extended a year early. He could have played out this year making less than $1 mil or accept the offer and extension that Ireland gave him.

    We kept two of our best players for "fair" deals that could have otherwise been inflated with other teams getting involved and bidding for their services. Imagine if Wake was hitting FA this year like he would have been if not offered the extension a year ago.

    I like to give credit when it is due and criticize when it is justified. Ireland's 2011 draft does not look good at all outside of Pouncey. There's still a sliver of hope that Thomas and Clay will actually do something. Ireland has bought himself another year so we will see how they perform.
