Tomorrow at 12:30 Jeff Ireland, GM of the Miami Dolphins, will take part in a pre-draft news conference to be livestreamed over on MiamiDolphins.com. What’s so special about this, you ask? Well nothing, but shortly after the completion of the news conference Ireland will hold a live web-chat Q&A session. Set to begin at 1 o’clock in the afternoon, tomorrow, April 7th, Dolfans will be have an opportunity to chat with the Dolphins GM online. Just follow the link right here.
I personally have to applaud the Dolphins for this. Bill Parcells took part in something similar before the Superbowl, I don’t know if that’s where Miami got the idea from, but I do know the idea of Parcells hunched over a laptop squinting, cursing a little and punching out one line answers with his index fingers amused me for a few days afterwards. Hopefully Ireland will be a bit more technologically inclined and be willing to give some insight into the draft and the state of the franchise in general.
I’m sure there will be no shortage of good questions, from Jason Taylor’s status as a free agent to receiver options in the draft. Afterwards we’ll have a summary of Ireland’s remarks in case you may actually have a job where your boss frowns on you watching Dolphins press conferences during work hours.
