I was to let Ireland the chance but i'm off the wagon now and frustrated on how lame a team has to be to compete in this league... looking at the Colts.
Marc Ross, Director of College Scouting, New York Giants
Eric DeCosta, Assistant General Manager, Baltimore Ravens
Mike Maccagnan, Director of College Scouting, Houston Texans
Brian Gutekunst, Director of College Scouting, Green Bay Packers
Omar Khan, Director of Football and Business Administration, Pittsburgh Steelers
All good choices.
-Pat Kirwan from an article he wrote in 2008Dear Mr. Pat Kirwan,If Parcells can leave coaching and still turn around the Miami Dolphins from the front office, then so can a number of former head coaches who have the experience to run a franchise.
Bill Parcells did not turn around the Miami Dolphins. The 1-15 season and the 11-5 season were both flukes. We are still the same mediocre team we were before we hired Cam Cameron and Bill Parcells. Please tell all your media buddies to quit saying BP turn this team around. He did not. BP is over rated and the game passed him by 20 years ago. I said this before we hired him and after we hired him.

Ireland isn't worthy of drafting five players in the first three rounds. I defended him for awhile but not anymore. His 2012 draft looks worse every week.
I'd rather see Derek pick these players, seriously.

i like Ireland and believe Philbin was the wrong guy. anybody that would trade your best player for no good reason is the wrong guy. anybody that benches the player your entire offense runs around for 2 quarters is the wrong guy. notice how he didnt do the same to Hartline and thats bc we have zero at the position but thats still a double standard you are teaching your players
1st and foremost Ross needs to keep himself in the background and out of football operations.
i like Ireland but if not Ireland i want someone that will come in and clean house and start over. for me thats Bill Cowher who was the guy i wanted from the start. thats never going to happen so ill just stick with Ireland

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/74...jobs-elsewhereEric DeCosta, one of the most sought-after general manager candidates, has decided to stay with the Baltimore Ravens, the team said Friday.
The Colts, Rams and Bears all had requested permission to speak to DeCosta, the Ravens' director of player personnel. But DeCosta chose not to interview with other teams.
And I doubt Philbin would poach one of the Packers scouts (Brian Gutekunst).
Ireland supporter. Ireland had one offseason to surround talent and transition a ground and pound team to a WCO. To transition a 3-4 defense into a hybrid 4-3.
Fans need to give the guy another offseason to prove himself.
There's a lot of contracts to resign or decline and walk. If Ireland decides to let some of these guys to walk then he'll be able to shape this team to the coaches strength.
