Excuse me for praising Miami GM Jeff Ireland—that is quite out of fashion these days—but the value of getting pass rusher Olivier Vernon with the 72nd pick of the 2012 draft is pretty good. Vernon is a big help to Cameron Wake, giving offensive coordinators another pass-rushing headache when they play Miami.

Even a broken clock is right twice each day.....

Ireland is awful. Please fire him.

Not addressing the OL properly in the draft will be his undoing. I would have thought that trading for Brandon Albert would have been a step in the right direction and well worth our 2nd round pick next year.

Well the DL went to sleep in the 2nd half. Vernon's coverage sack was just that...a coverage sack. I'd question the logic of the one praising him. So far...Davis still outweighs Vernon and Egnew.

It helps to have decent defensive players when your offense goes 3-and-out because you haven't had a decent OL the entire time Ireland has been here.

Davis? Did you mean Marshall?

The actual Marshall trade ended up being Egnew, Dion Sims, and part of the Will Davis pick.

Davis was a straight for Jamar Taylor

Man....isn't that awful. Marshall is simply a monster this year. Egnew is just now contributing, primarily out of desperation, as a blocker. Sims sees the field only occasionally. Davis is an unknown quantity.
