I was reading an article in the Miami Herald this morning titled Dolphin's Sparano says Henne has a good chance to start. A little nugget at the end of the first page caught my attention. Ireland is speaking about Lousaka Polite and is quoted as saying:
"His blocking always has been satisfactory for me. There are times you can use some power, but I’m not dissatisfied with Lou at all. He runs well in short yardage, catches well. He’s a very solid player."
Is this Ireland's way of saying goodbye?
Remember Gibril Wilson? If so, you also remember Ireland's double-speak endorsement of Wilson just about 2 weeks before he was cut. Here's what Dolphin GM Jeff Ireland had to say about the FS we not-so-lovingly refer to as The Gerbil:
"We have our evaluation of Gibril Wilson. We know what kind of player he’s capable of being... I think he’s going to be a very good player for the future. He was disappointed in his play last year. I think he can play better. We’ll just have to see. I think he will."
What do these Ireland quotes have in common:
Other reasons that I believe Lousaka Polite has played his last game as a Miami Dolphin
Now, don't get me wrong, I like the Lousaka Monster as much as the next Dolphan, but I think his time in Miami is up. This is unfortunate because he seems to be a great guy in the locker room and off the field. He is the 2009 and 2010 winner of the Miami Dolphin's Nat Moore Community Service Award.
Decrypting Ireland's interviews is like putting together a puzzle. Taken on their own, the individual pieces don't reveal the picture.... but when the puzzle is complete you can look back and see how all the pieces fit together and say, " It all makes sense now. I should have known."
It's like when you find out your significant other has been cheating on you for months and you had no idea. But once you know the truth all of the warning signs you had dismissed for so long suddenly become obvious.
So ask yourself this, "Is my significant other cheating on me with Jeff Ireland?" If the answer is yes, skip the next question and stop reading because you've got WAY bigger problems than who will be Miami's fullback in 2011.
Then, after clearing up your relationship issues, ask yourself, "Has Big #36 played his last game in the Aqua and Orange?"
