what people who rip the "apologists" fail to realize is, blind faith and blind hatred are no different from each other. If building a dynasty was so easy, every team would have a dynasty. I'm not quick to tear down Ireland because of what Spielman and past regime's deficiencies were.
This "6-10? FIRE THEM ALL" mentality will get us nowhere. I understand if we were demolished in practically every game, wasn't competitive with anyone, and had no talent on the roster; then I'd say get this bum outta here, but that's not the case. I personally like the majority of the moves Ireland has made in the time that he has been here, and think this roster is drastically more talented after his arrival, than before; so I'll keep my pitchfork in the closet until the talent level begins to regress.
I'm not so shortsighted that I'm ready to blow it all up because the GM didn't pay a King's ransom to a QB one step from paralysis, or break the bank for a 7th round backup QB with 2 NFL starts. Am I content with going into the season with Matt Moore and David Garrard? No. But, I'm not in those front office meetings either, so I have no idea what their plans and visions are for the opening day roster, and neither do any of you. I'll withold my judgment until then. If the season begins and they're getting their blocks knocked off and not competitive, I'll be in line with you all ready to burn Ireland at the stake. But I won't do that in March because he didn't sign this year's Kevin Kolb (every year has one).
