Regarding the trade of their final 7th.rd. pick to Kansas City. Ireland said their board had been picked clean, it was empty. If this is the case, why did I see a story on E.S.P.N. about Franz Joseph going undrafted and finally deciding to sign with Oakland after having said that he was also offered an undrafted free agent contract from the Dolphins? And it was his decision to trade the pick, not Parcells'? Sounds like a croc if you ask me.

I notice the draft mavens, in particular Mel Kiper, JUNIOR, gave the 'phins a snidely "C". The others placed the 'phins last as well in the division. They did so last year as well and ... guess what, the 'phins won the division.

Now, some may say it was a combiantion of a light schedule, Brady getting bushwhacked and the Yets committing Harry Carey (Cubs loooooose! Again!!!).

I think, just sort of along these lines. If the draft mavens and all the sports columnists were REALLY as good as they claim to be, Tuna, Tony and Irish would be writing columns and they would be coaching.

But that isn't so.

I remember a year ago, today, that a lot of people were grumbling no quarterback, the team is going to win 4, maybe 6 games if they are lucky. Nobody believed. Woohoo, what a difference a coaching staff makes.

Let's see what unfolds in the next few months. I have a feeling that the defense is going to have two very nasty spear points on the edges, the DT question will start answering itself, the secondary is going to start getting very dominant and the offense is going to be a lot better.

I can't wait to see those new receivers after a half yeaer and I can't wait to see the first WildPat play. Iooh oooh, gotta love those 'phins.

We go to the playoffs and win at least game 17.

In 2010, we go to the Super Bowl, maybe, if the QB situation is copasetic.

And I ain't no futbol maven, I work for a living.

Hey Ireland, maybe you can find some more pygmies to draft, now that Beck is gone.

I'm still concerned with the NT position. Ferguson goes down and we're screwed. I'm not convinced the Samoan can handle it. He seems to be more of a 4-3 DT. We will make moves during pre-season and I hope it brings a big body.

Did you guys read the answer on the punter? " he is a little old right now"
WTF? he is getting younger latter...

Then he says "he is nice young man"

Ireland must have been brain dead at the end
