One of the best measures of the success of a manager is the talent they bring in to a company or team. While Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland has filled some of his positions well, the defensive backfield has been tough to watch since 2008.
When Jake Long signed with the St. Louis Rams Sunday night, it ended not only his tenure at left tackle, but also completed the abysmal failure that was Bill Parcells’ time as the head of the Miami Dolphins.
The Miami Dolphins got some good news on the injury front Monday when cornerback Sean Smith was diagnosed with just a knee bruise.
Whether or not Ryan Tannehill plays on Sunday will likely be a game-time decision as the Dolphins are still uncertain if he will be ready.
Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland has proven to be Teflon-like for his ability to not have the Dolphins continuing woes stick to him. But, his time may be about to run out with the expected horrendous season the Dolphins are undertaking now.
The Miami Dolphins secondary came under increased scrutiny this week after the team traded away star cornerback Vontae Davis. The team’s cover corners responded by wilting under the pressure of facing the Dallas Cowboys’ bench players.
Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland isn’t particularly popular with fans.
Matt Barkley, Barkevious Mingo, Robert Woods, and Star Lotulelei are the names Miami Dolphins fans should try to start learning because those are the players at the top of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Miami Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis is the latest remnant of the Bill Parcells regime to be sent packing. The Fins traded Davis to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday for a 2013 second-round draft pick, according to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer.
While the quarterback competition has drawn the most interest at training camp for the Miami Dolphins; a battle at cornerback may become the storyline to follow both on the field and on the HBO series, “Hard Knocks.”
