Although many people feel as he has been given more than enough opportunities to win, the Miami Dolphins are apparently going to give GM Jeff Ireland one more season to turn things around. After finishing 7-9, the Dolphins failed to make the playoffs once again, although some projected them to win just four or five games in 2012 with a new head coach and a rookie first round quarterback who is still viewed as a bit of a project.
Joe Philbin did a phenomenal job in his first season as head coach of the Dolphins. Ryan Tannehill showed progress as the season came to an end as the No. 8 overall pick out of Texas A&M from last April’s NFL Draft. The defense looked very formidable at times, while the offense was able to at least keep the chains moving with limited talent on that side of the ball.
