The Blueprint to a Perfect Offseason for the Miami Dolphins

Now is it safe for me to talk about the Miami Dolphins' offseason?

A few weeks ago I attempted to discuss not only the players Miami should look for in April's NFL draft, but also their salary cap situation for next season. While many readers offered in their own input, some readers were a bit resistant to the idea of discussing next season with Miami still fighting for a playoff berth this season.

But at 4-6, in the midst of a three-game losing streak, and with a tough schedule coming up (three straight games against Seattle, New England and at San Francisco), it might be time to face up to the fact that while this team has shown great potential and many of reasons for hope, they're not quite the playoff team that we (and by we I mean I) thought they would be less than a month ago.

Now I'm not throwing in the towel yet on 2012, as the NFL is an any given Sunday league, and just three any given Sunday performances could put Miami back on track at 7-6, but why not look to the future now and start thinking about what the Dolphins should do this offseason?

Who should they go after in free agency, who should they draft, and most importantly, should Jeff Ireland be in charge of those decisions?

Let's take a look at my ideas, then in the comments feel free to discuss your own.
