    Now it's Jeff Ireland's turn to run his mouth . . .

    Jeff Ireland feels great about the Fins

    Though G.M. Jeff Ireland apparently isn't ready to predict a Super Bowl berth (like his boss did on Saturday), Ireland generally feels good about the Dolphins heading into 2010.

    Actually, he feels better than good.

    "I feel great where we're at," Ireland said Friday, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

    "Nothing really concerns me," he said of a roster that has raised questions at safety and linebacker.

    We'll defer to Jackson as to the rest of the details. But we'll leave you with the perfunctory Pat White update.

    As to the possibility of White being moved to another position, Ireland said, "Not right now."

    Actually, we'll leave you with this. There's no hint in Jackson's item that Ireland faced a single question about the "thugs and hoodlums" that the team seems to be harboring, despite V.P. of football operations Bill Parcells' broad claim when taking the job that he wanted no such players.

    Given the small army of Miami media covering the team, it's somewhat amazing that the team isn't facing greater local pressure for the conduct of its players. If the Dolphins aren't held accountable by the league or the media for a failure to avoid problem players and to keep them from causing problems once in the building, the team never will change its ways.

    Then again, the Bengals have been held accountable by the media, and they're still willing to add tiger stripes to an orange jumpsuit.

    Kudos to Florio for calling out the South Florida media for being the of cheerleaders that they are.

    which part would you call "running his mouth?"

    It's good that all these teams are so confident in their rosters. The AFCE should be very entertaining this season; we'll see how it all plays out in the end.

    Maybe Ireland asked Dez Bryant if his mother was a prostitute beacuse he wanted to know if he would fit in with all the rest of the criminals on the team

    Call me crazy but I seemed to miss the part where he was running his mouth.
