Miami Dolphins Power Rankings: Jeff Ireland's 6 Worst Moves
Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

He is known by many names: the "Unlucky Leprechaun," the "Muffer," "Destroyer of Worlds," though most call him Jeff Ireland. While these terms are pure conjecture, we have submitted them to the Swami, so listen for them on the next episode of Sunday NFL Countdown.

Coming off an impressive stint as a scout for the Dallas Cowboys between 2001 and 2007, Ireland was made the general manager of the Miami Dolphins in January 2008. 

Since taking his talents to South Beach, Ireland's team has had mixed success, winning the AFC East in 2008, but going 20-28 in the three seasons since. Over this time, only the hapless Bills have lost more games.

In 2012, the Fins' play has been equally as mediocre. The team sports a surprisingly effective Reggie Bush-led rushing attack, along with a defense that is in the NFL's top five in rushing yards allowed per game, though a porous secondary has been troublesome.

In the spirit of frustrated Dolphins fans everywhere, we're going to take a look at Jeff Ireland's six worst moves since being hired four and a half years ago.

And no, the decision to cut Chad Johnson is not on this list.
