    Sparano didnt have much to work with. Will Baker? Nate Garner? I suppose either of those guys were better than Colombo, but its not like Ireland provided him with some world-beater stud and Sparano refused to play him.

    not gonna read the whole thread, but I saw some valid points against Ireland. I would just like to point something out in support of him.

    Even under the likes of Wanny and Saban we had huge holes on the roster and we were always right against the cap. JT and Zach were constantly restructuring their contracts in the offseason to give us room to make moves.

    Whatever the reason for cap space, we've never really been strapped for cash under Ireland. In some cases that's just him being cheap, but that isn't the only case.

    Lydon Murtha was pegged to be our starting RT heading into that season. Murtha being placed on IR is was what prompted the Columbo signing.

    Which made less sense. Making the crappy Murtha our starting RT or signing Columbo to replace him. Both seem pretty bad ideas

    What makes you so sure Murtha wasnt an upgrade over Columbo?

    Im an upgrade over Columbo. Its like the south park epsidoe douce versus crap sandwich. Neither guy should have been counted on to be an NFL starter.

    truthfully we can ALL start they whining when we drafted Long instead of Ryan, and it's a huge pity party from there, however all of that is irrelevant THIS offseason because Ireland made a TON of people happy with last years draft and he can do the same in this years offseason

    A Mazda is an upgrade over a Ferrari... if the Ferrari's ****ing broken all the time. Murtha can't stay healthy, has never stayed healthy, and it was dumb to rely on him to stay healthy to the point your backup plan could pass for a corpse.
