    Ireland's approval rating

    I'm going to keep this simple because a lot of people may not like the job hes doing but don't want him fired for various other reasons. So simply put, do you like what he's done with the team so far?

    I held out hope that his drafts would be his saving grace. As of this moment, that doesn't appear to be the case. If his draft picks from the past 3 years don't contribute in major ways this season, its time to move on. We need fresh blood, especially since most of the fanbase hates Ireland, so every move is hyper criticized, which ultimately is destructive to the team.

    Whether I like it or not (and I don't), he won't be fired any time soon.
    "Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."

    "We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."


    "Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."

    "I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."

    No I don't. I believe he's been pretty bad at drafting. ow having said that is hard to judge this last draft just yet. But I was very upset we took a RT in the 2nd round when we should have taken a WR and if Martin turns out to be a good player9which I think he will)then great but it was still the wrong decision imo.

    Ozzy rules!!

    That man doesn't belong in the NFL any more than most of us on this message board.

    How the hell can anyone look at that roster and vote yes? I guess it's amazing what you can get used too.

    No. No matter how we judge his time here its been a mess.

    If we judge it by "Hes been paid for 5 years as general manager and had decision making ability for at least part of that": then no. This team's earlier drafts are blank marks on this roster. 1 player from the 2008 draft is left, and the 2009 draft isnt much better. Our free agent signings were horrifically bad and have forced us to sit pat this offseason.

    If we judge this by "Hes only been general manager for 2 years because Parcells did everything": then no. These last two years were just awful. He bought high and sold low on the talent department. And some of the decisions were absolutely mind boggling. Legedu Naanee? Benny Sapp over Will Allen? Marc freaking Colombo? We needed a quarterback last offseason, and every single one in the draft was available except for Cam Newton....and we draft a center. Then trade up for a running back who fumbles and runs upright. Meanwhile other teams fill their voids at center and running back without a problem later in the draft. Mind Boggling.

    If we judge this by "Hes hasnt been general manager because first Parcells was here, then Sparano took over, now Philbin was given control of the team...":
