I endorse this thread.
Over the past 24 months, Ireland has been damn near the best GM in the league, if not the very best.
He has earned an extension.
Bill Belichick on "putting the tape on"
Okay ive never hated or loved the guy. But can he get us to the playoffs first an let this team show that what his master plan work before u crown him. I agree he has made recent good moves but time will tell. Niners GM should be highest that team is stacked. My 2 cents.
The defense has the talent to be a top premiere defense in this league. Our offense really depends on Tannehill's progression. I think Ireland has done a great job and should be extended. I expect us to be a playoff team.
If (rather, when) we make the playoffs this year, Ross should show him the money. The Tuna/Sporano/Ireland dynamic just never seemed a good recipe, and it showed. He's done some nice things since.
Thumbs down to Jeffy-Jeff.
I like what Ireland has done THIS YEAR, ON PAPER. So far he has been a part of below .500 teams. Our O-line, which we have spent considerable draft picks on is still a major concern. His picks in the second round have been horrific! The biggest moves he has made are in FA and a move up in the draft this year.
I will say that his approach seemed to change this year and we were more aggressive and smart with how we did it. As stated above, it looks good....but it is one off season we have yet to see the fruits from. We have seen what his past drafts and off seasons have done, and it hasn't been pretty.
I can't recall anyone else renting a plane to fly a fire their GM(Fire Irleland)sign around the city.
We need to get a few people together to go to the Miami Dolphins headquarters and start a "Extend Jeff Ireland" rally! Maybe rent a plane and have it fly a "Jeff Ireland is the best NFL GM" banner!
Be afraid, Brady. Be very afraid!
-Dan MarinoI just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.
