    I had enough of Ireland last season. His picks as backwards. He should have taken wr in the early rounds and tackle,te,and rb in the later rounds. At this point I am just waiting on the firing. Hopefully we will get another player or two and he can keep what we have intact without creating more holes. I hope these picks are his so he cannot deflect the blame.

    That means just one thing. He's drafting oline in the 1st round and is basically telling the fans to go **** themselves. There's a critical difference between arrogance and confidence. When someone's history includes 4 straight losing seasons and multiple failed visions, there should be some level of humility, self reflection, and an openness to getting better.

    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.

    Isn't the General Manager also responsible for ticket sales? He had damn well better care about what the fans think. GMs with empty stadiums don't last long.

    If he drafts offensive line in the first round I guarantee there will be supporters here saying he made the right choice. Ridiculous.

    If you read the quote as part of the article, Ireland is referring to the "public perception" (draft experts) who said Tannehill was a reach and Pouncey was a reach. Ireland is saying he cares more about what his eyes and what his scouts say about a player, not about what Mel Kiper or Todd McShay or Mike Mayock or Charley Casserly or anyone else in the media believes a player should be taken.

    Ireland is not referring to the fans at all. Pouncey is one of the best young centers and Tannehill looks like he could be legit with some actual weapons around him.

    I have no problem with what Ireland said, especially when you take into consideration the context in which he said it.

    When my eyes first glanced over this, I thought this said "Ireland quit."

    I was expecting a parade, confetti and projectile corks.
