Wow.............not typical for Ireland to make such a direct statement. Remember he was the guy that said the Dolphin's next HC would be a "Football Guy"??

Anyway, I hope their board was right........should be a lot of competition this summer.

Good to hear, sounds like we got a lot of value out of our picks. McShay said we had the 5th best draft based on his big board.

It actually translates a bit differently then that.

if you pay attention to prospect rankings leading up to the draft you'll see that we got 5 or 6 of the top 150 players in this draft. 3 of them, at one point or another, had 1st round grades

Philbin isnt a "Football Guy" ?

Almost 20 years of coaching exp, with 10 of them in the NFL working his way up from a position coach to OC on the same team....

Sounds like a football guy to me...

Ask yourself this: who wouldn't hire a "football" guy to be the head coach of an NFL team?

I think every GM feels the same way.

My point exactly, but apparently misinterpreted Jeff.

I am very excited about seeing this draft class...Can't wait to see them in the preseason.

After a solid draft last year we could really on an upswing with good coaching

I don't understand those that have to come in with a pessimistic attitude for every article posted.

If you don't want to be excited, fine, but why drag the rest of us down too? Especially with purely sarcastic posts that don't even offer any sort of opinion about the original post.

In my opinion it's a great time of year to be excited... the draft is over, we're learning new things about these guys everyday and we're starting fresh...

None of us have a clue what this team is going to look like this year... it's a new scheme across the board... but I for one am happy to see Ireland break out of the Parcells mold and go after guys this staff wants.

:yay:

Two ways to look at a new staff and a new draft.
1. Negative and pessimistic because we go through the highs of this every few years and we've been let down so many times that we've adopted the position of "prove something to me" before we will be excited about it.
2. Happy because this is a new direction, a new draft, and there are lots of indications that things will be different than they were before.
Neither is wrong, but it does get to be a drag when all the Negative Nancys come around and throw a wet blanket over heads and tell us we have no right to be optimistic.
