    Jeff Ireland Reportedly Hired by Seahawks as Pre-Draft Consultant

    Now Ireland has been given a clean slate, and he will have a chance to make an impact for what many consider to be the NFL's model organization. The Seahawks will select No. 32 overall in the draft after winning the Super Bowl, and they could potentially get even better than they were last year.

    It took him five years to learn from his mistakes?

    He is a draft consultant, he will not be running their draft. John Idzik was a part of Seattle's buidling contract wise and nobody acts like he is a genius gm for the jets
    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.

    iRELAND IS GOING TO BE SENT TO THE cfl - he is money at finding 5th wideouts and kick off returners
    Dmitri Patterson gets indefinitely suspended for "not showing up" and Buttfumble got a raise for "not showing up" - go figure how the JESTS world works?

    I called this the day he was fired. Hes big buddies with the group in seattle. He will be promoted to assistant gm this summer and when they keep winning he will end up getting another gm job in the future

    Dont forget: knew more then Stephen Ross. You know, the guy that fired Ireland.

    ...wait, that doesnt sound so good for the franchise, huh?

    How about: Fans fault Ireland was fired.

    Agreed, just like Ireland learned not to invest tons of resources into the offensive line after drafting Jake Long and signing Justin Smiley.

    Its not like we had 5 more years of similar moves.

    Now that Ireland and Seattle have "parted ways" there's a number of posts in this thread that read even sillier than they did a few months ago.
    When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.
