    Wtf...Ireland was given 1 year extension in the offseason

    RT @AdamHBeasley: Miami Herald exclusive: Dolphins quietly extend Jeff Ireland's contract in the offseason http://t.co/sLZTP9JZZ0

    we actually extended his contract before the season?!

    Now that I think about it, this likely didn't happen overnight. So I might have been right that the 2-0 record was enough to bring Steve Ross' side to the negotiating table.

    Ah you know what, I misread this.

    The Dolphins extended Ireland during the off season before any of the winning began. They gave him a one year extension to prevent lame duck status.

    As usual the media had a misleading (or at least poorly worded).

    Undefeated is a present condition. Pair that with "extend" in present tense and it leads readers to believe this is happening right now.

    It should say "extended" in the offseason.

    Re: Jeff Ireland Extended

    From the article:

    Doesn't sound like they have much information. Does that mean his new contact runs to the end of the 2014 season? Or does it go beyond that?

    It's being labeled a one year extension so I imagine so.

    Would seem to reiterate that Ross considers the past problems to have been coaching... especially when you look around the league at guys who Sparano jettisoned for one reason or another, but who are playing well for their new teams.

    Dude, do you ever give up? Your hatred of Ireland is completely unreasonable given where this team currently sits.
    or maybe (likely) you're clueless on how business actually works. They had faith in him to give him an extension because they are a lot smarter than you and can actually see what Ireland has been building the last couple of years.
    I was wondering who the first guy would be to bash Ireland after we started 3-0.

    I was somewhat baffled that Ireland had not been extended already. Good to know it was just a matter of the information not being released.

    Actually it would have made more sense to me than not. I really wondered at Miami's willingness to let their GM conduct an off season while in lame duck status. And further, I wondered why a lame duck Jeff Ireland was so willing to operate as if he were here for longer than just 2013.

    It's true that he spent a lot of Steve Ross' money. Some say he bought a playoff team by shoving all the consequences off into the future, but I don't see that because Miami looks like it could have just as much money available next off season (though just as many players coming free, holes to fill).

    If he were TRULY a lame duck...trust me there were more assets he could have purchased during free agency.

    I'm fine with a one-year extension, I expect a four year deal is in the pipeline if we keep winning and make the playoffs.

    you mean our backup RB in a pass-oriented offense, who's getting paid a small salary, but still made a key play yesterday? As long as they extend him and don't pay much for him, I'm okay with that.
    Would I like to upgrade over D Thomas? yes, but only with a draft pick. backup RB isn't worth overpaying for a FA, not in this offense anyway.

    Well of course we did... That way now his contract and Philbins line up, right? Wasnt it 3 years for Joe? Now 3 for Jeff with Joe. It just makes sense. That way if we have to make a change, It's a clean sweep again.

    Tampa Bay's GM Mark Dominik must be thrilled...this is looking like it will be his 4th losing season in 5 years, maybe he'll see an extension shortly

    I'm not going to list them, but there are several posters on this board that would prefer that Miami suck and lose games, than have Ireland get credit for doing well. They are so vested in Ireland hatred that it interferes with their ability to root for the team. In fact, I think some would be upset if we made a deep playoff run and would find excuses to blame Ireland.

    Good grief, there is no reason to connect Philbin to Ireland in that way.

    Philbin is in no way responsible for Jeff's previous blunders,mistakes, and catastrophes.

    Philbin is the reason for this year's success so far. Ireland is the reason our victories haven't been more decisive.

    Ireland's ineptitude and that of his entire scouting staff is obvious.

    Philbin is a GREAT! coach.

    Ireland is a BAD general manager.

    Ross is an OK owner. He appears to care about winning anyway, even if he keeps Ireland and did some other questionable things as well.

    When has a GM or head coach for that matter ever been extended after consecutive losing seasons? Wins and losses dictate job security, or at least it usually does.

    I didn't know Philbin drafted Tannehill and the D. Thanks for clarifying. I'm also glad Philbin signed Grimes, probably the best FA signing this year.

    It's a typical 'lame' duck avoiding contract. It's not a 3-5 year deal. So his status is still up after this year, but I assume if the team gets into the playoffs and gets at least a win there...he'll get his longer contract.

    And there will be much weeping from a far off segment.

    It's just an anti-lame duck contract and nothing more.

    I have mixed feelings about this. I'm not shocked by it, because I expected this to happen (although not during the off-season, in secret). I still don't think the last two drafts (the definitive Ireland draft's) Miami had were all that good.

    Exactly right.

    And I should add that if they do not make it, then he'll probably be fired whether he's got that year left or not.
