Ross has his advisers that he listens to.. the same advisers that gave the thumbs up on hiring Ireland in the first place.. Whomever they like, I'm sure Ross will recruit..
He doesnt give a rats behind about what the fanbase cares or thinks..
Mr Ross.. you failed us!!!
unless its an absolute deal breaker with a BIG TIME gm prospect, philbin is going nowhere. boss ross hand picked him [ireland wanted the dude from denver] and he wont be sending him packing.
and rightfully so as NONE OF THIS is philbins coaching. its just hes now finding out what most of us have known for some time, that we do not have talent. not enough to win us anything special. this is ALL irelands fault for not being able to draft and wanting to hold onto his failed and flawed picks like sean smith.
and speaking of ireland, YES!! he should be fired at seasons end, not a minute after. he should have been gone 2 years back. and its not always so much the players he pics, its where and how he pics them. i said this years draft was one of the WORST in finz history and its rearing its ugly head. i like tanny a lot. he shows some real great things, but, his promotion to starter was all political, he was going to be the starter no matter what. he should have stayed on the bench as he wasnt ready and we had a qb who played his arse off last year and deserved to see if it was a fluke or not.
he just isnt A QUALITY GM! never has been.
he drafted a qb who should have been a later 1st round choice, not #8. then he forced him into the starting job.
2nd pick was a ot who couldnt handle speed demons or rushers bull rushers as we have seen so many times already.
really? another rb after we had a STELLER year from reggie? and daniel thomas got injured. before that the kid looked real good, IF you had your eyes open. so why an rb that high? WHERE THE 2 BIGGEST NEEDS, WR AND CB?
NOT THE NEXT PIC!! that went on olivia vernon. he has flashed. looks like a pro bowl special teams guy, maybe. isnt even close to being the bookend with wake. the kid had very little college ball and had injuries. again, if this is the 5th round, not so bad a chance on him. but taking an inexperienced player when we still needed cb and wr made it worse.
and the pics kept getting more silly. and after vernon its all forgetable trash.
his free agency was a disaster. duds who were cut or couldnt stay on the field.
YES!! it is time to let ireland go.
"EVERYONE'S A TOUGH GUY UNTIL THEY MEET ONE".
That being said, back to football. You question draft picks but, give no alternative solutions. Who are you picking in place of Tannehill, etc? A 1%'er asked me to ask you.
Roflmao lets figure a role for Ireland but not fire him talk about Srockholm Syndrome
The above post is not subject to penalty under the TOS I declare the Hayden Fox defense. " It is impossible for the staff to know my context therefore I cannot be penalized"
Maybe Ross will just keep buying thousands of tickets to keep games on TV, and wait a few years to build through the draft.
Anyone buying that?
Come on guys, there is some nonsense posted on this thread. Ireland was BP's man, nothing to do with Ross's advisors unless BP is still one of his advisors which I doubt. Secondly to say this year's draft was one of the WORST in Finz history is completely untrue too, take a list of the drafts over the past 10-15 years and this would rank probably at the top in most people's books.
As for Ireland this year's draft was a huge step in the right direction, actually using the 1st pick on a play maker on O, and the rest of the draft doesn't look too shabby either. Having said that Ireland is an average GM, not great, not awful. On the basis that you want the best for the Fins it probably does make sense to can him if there is a better alternative happy to play ball with Philbin.
I have been patient with Ireland for 5 years. I am not seeing improvement in the trenches, in the secondary, or offensive play makers in the draft.
Our best players were either here before he arrived, trades, or free agents.
I am ready for a change of direction for the sake of change. What we have right now is not working. Send Ireland back into the waiting arms of Jerry Jones.
