Update to yesterday's post: the Dolphins have just given an unspecified contract extension to General Manger Jeff Ireland. Ireland is being credited with finding such Pro-Bowl talent as Jake Long and Cameron Wake. Never mind that Long was the obvious first choice in the 2008 NFL Draft by whichever team was (un)lucky enough to have it, or that Wake chose Miami after interest from half the league. And Ireland was also among the team decision makers who forced out Jason Taylor. The Dolphins may look talented on paper, but that hasn't translated to success on the field.
This isn't really a case of "what have you done for us lately," but "what have you done for us, period?" Is the right approach really to keep throwing money at people who haven't ever really produced? After two years of 7-9 finishes and one post-season appearance in 9 years, maybe it's time to let the staff start getting a little uncomfortable. There is no shortage of other guys waiting for the job who are willing to work harder and take less money for the opportunity to prove themselves better.
