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...":
    Look how good DeMarcco Murray is going to be and we wouldn't have had to trade up to get him either.

    Definitely not happy about the WR situation. Ireland put all his eggs in the "guys he thought would develop" basket and it may very well cost him his job.

    He really screwed up the wr situation this year basically ignored free agents at position and then ignored in draft until late rounds. I would say the move with Vontae also weakened the secondary qyute a bit. I definately dont care if he gets fired since im sure there are guys that could do better jobs
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    I dont think this is a yes or no question. Lots of contingencies here....

    Bro I think the lack of FA's sticking and making an impact on this team along with Egnew a high pick in the draft have brought those fans out that were giving Ireland the benefit of a doubt to doubting him overall.

    Thanks to Like2God for the great Avatar/Sig!

    I voted yes. Now that Ireland has been working on his own for a while, I think he has finally figured it out. I think it is a mistake to keep churning the coaching staff and the GM. We need to be patient and give the coaches and players time to gel and develop. It's gonna take some time, but I think we are on the right track and are going to get there.

    That is the problem right there we all know the Fins record will either be awful or mediocre because we have little talent on the team. Therefore we stomp on dicks!

    15% say yes? I guess syphilis is on the rise. That number will never get any lower and it doesn't matter the dizzying heights of incompetence Ireland reaches or how low it drags our team. There's always going to be a small percentage who don't believe in rocking the boat or are company men till the end or think Zach Thomas should have been moved to safety.

    1 Pro Bowler in 5 drafts and that took the number 1 overall pick. His inability to find playmakers means no one he's drafted has scored more than 3 TDs in a year. The WR we passed on in the 2nd round this year has already scored 2 in his first game with the filthy jests. We moved up to take a RB when the RB taking after him has just passed 1000 yds in 14 games at an avg of almost 6 per carry. We passed on Clay Mathews and Hakeem Nicks (2 positions of need at the time) for a CB we just ditched for a 2nd rounder because of immaturity when everyone already knew that was an issue at draft. Everything about BMarsh was a debacle. It doesn't help that two of his better draft picks aren't on the team anymore. We don't know who's responsible for what but Wake, Bess, Starks, and Bush are the only moves I think were really savvy. He's probably a valuable member on a scouting staff when he has a much smaller role. But running a whole team seems way, way over his head.
