  1. Ummmm….maybe the Miami Herald should have a fact checker.
    As this site points out (, Ireland was still therewhen Hamlin signed w/ Dallas in 2007. He and Sparano left in 2008 after Hamlin had his 5 interception seasin with the Cowboys.
    And to think….that writer for the Herald gets PAID to cover the Dolphins. WOW!
    Time to replace him!

  2. thats why you were cut Buchanan… good luck in DC… if u play better there then we will know the deal.. you and the defense did not mesh

  3. Don’t be shocked of Sproles gets traded, he had to sign his tender before a trade can be made anyway.

  4. Geez, how can that boob from Miami come up with that “fact” because he obviously was either just hired or didn’t pay attention to when the Sparanos hit town.
    I don’t buy that the Jets have passed the Cowboys, who seem to be at the top of the list of teams that people love to hate.
    Cutler apologists should note that the trade resulted in the offenses in both cities turning into what the other team’s offense was in the previous year and that their “success” swapped as well (Cutler, who has never had a winning season, is 23-30 as a starter while Orton, who has never had a losing season, is 29-19. Cutler’s thrown an interception in 73.6% of his games while Orton has thrown one in 49.0%).
