    Then why would anyone want a person that weak as their gm but oh well
    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.

    So basically Ross and Huizenga paid Ireland around 3 million dollars a year to bring Parcells his coffee? I highly doubt that.

    Parcells doesn't strike me as the type of person that delegates very much authority

    I think while Jeff had a voice, nothing happened without Parcells' oversight. Exactly how much authority Ireland had may never be fully known, I just feel like if Parcells wanted anyone's opinion within the Dolphins organization, he gave it to them. The sad part is, we probably would be in better shape now if Ireland actually had control from the start.

    We would be in better shape if we never dealt with Parcells thus no Sparano or ireland either. Now the Atlanta GM he would have been a good hire

    You looked at that 2011 offseason and thought: "Ireland is finally released from the old ball and chains Parcells and WOWSERS!!! Color me impressed!"

    Because it looked like more of the same to me.

    Because we DON'T KNOW what happened with Parcells and Ireland, I feel as though we can only judge Ireland since Parcells left. We KNOW he has been in charge since then.

    And anyone who doesn't believe that Parcells didn't have final say in the draft is even more foolish. BP was paid a great deal of money to rebuild this franchise. He wasn't brought in as an observer.
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.
