    It's win/win for all the naysayers anyway. Next year you'll either have a playoff team or Ireland will be gone.
    I know how long, it was exactly 5 years ago....

No matter the passion, both negative or positive of an avid fan, which I can expect and respect.... really, how many times can you say the same thing independently?

    Apparently, dropping down to your knees, drinking from the cup of Parcells, and riding his coat tails to the top worked for both Ireland and Sparano. Now one has been decapitated and eagerly waiting for the other to put his head on the chopping block.

    I already waved the white flag, you won this round!
    weather ingram worked out or not ,is not my point(bush is a better player imo ) ..... i'm just telling u what the saints thought of bush ,which is why they traded him so cheap,it had nothing to do with them being a top team .your clown Ireland 'just don't know what the hell he is doing ..... p.s kill the attitude ,partner...i'm just stating facts.

    The Saints got rid of Bush and signed Sproles who they probably got as much or more production out of for half the money and a draft pick, don't see how anybody can fault them for that. In retrospect we should have done the same thing with Jake long.
