How are people voting yes? Seriously, how?
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.

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