Miami Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland Better Be Feeling Pressure From Everywhere

Miami Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland told WQAM radio that he was feeling "pressure from everywhere" during an interview a couple of days ago.

All I have to say is that he better be feeling pressure, because his job is at stake. If him and Tony Sparano don't put together a winning season next year, then they will both be looking for new jobs in 2012.

I would be worried if he wasn't feeling a lot of pressure to succeed. After such a great season in 2008, the Dolphins have fallen back to mediocrity, and they just can't seem to get everything working at the same time.

In the 2009-2010 season, Miami's biggest problem was their defense. So, during the offseason they hired Mike Nolan and revamped the roster. The result in the 2010-2011 season was a much better defense that ranked among the Top 10 in the NFL. The problem was that Miami's offense was terrible, and now they will have to focus on fixing that.

Another problem is that they hired a coach without a very good resume. When Miami hired Mike Nolan we knew that he would be able to turn the team around, but Brain Daboll doesn't inspire as much confidence in next year's offense.

So yes, Jeff Ireland, you should be feeling "pressure from everywhere." We haven't seen any move you've made this offseason that excites us about next year. Fans of the Miami Dolphins expect success, and they haven't gotten that success in a long time.

Thank you everybody for reading, and please let me know what you think about Ireland saying he's feeling pressure from everywhere.

I am also curious as to whether you guys recognize the quote that I put on the logo at the top of the page. Give me your guesses about who said it and what they were talking about.
