    I can see Reid going to SD. He is a So Cal guy and he would have a few years of Rivers left to play with.

    Coaches and GM's getting fired

    So far the list is:
    Chargers
    HC Norv Turner
    GM AJ Smith
    Browns
    HC Pat Shurmer
    GM Tom Heckert
    Chiefs
    HC Romeo Crennel
    Eagles
    HC Andy Reid
    My source is the ticker screen on ESPN. All these people have been fired. I wonder who is next.
    And to all the people that wanted Ireland to get fired, do you really wanna have a few teams competing to hire a GM?
    This is all the more reason to put that talk to bed and realize its best to unite and hope for the best this off season with Ireland as our GM.

    Part of me wants Ireland to stay because I think continuity is important (and I don't think we've had it even with him, since philosophies changed last season), but part of me wants to risk swinging for the fences with someone else (because while I don't think he's bad, I don't think he's irreplaceable either).

    I glanced at some Browns boards this morning, most are glad Shurmer is gone but they wanted to keep Heckert.

    I can't find any confirmation on this. Only thing I can find is that they've submitted paperwork to interview other candidates. But we did that and didn't fire our HC, so... :confused2:

    Black Monday

    Here we are its black Monday many coaches and GM's have lost their jobs. I am wondering if we can have a poll should Ireland be fired TODAY?! After Miami's performance in New England ( I was at the game in full Dolphin attire) of 28-0 showing Miami lacks are really fire power and talent I would vote yes and lets liberate ourselves from the Ireland curse. Is it possible to do a poll ?

    It doesn't matter. Ireland is staying. Just pray we pick up Heckert in some capacity.

    Wow....maybe we can get Sparano back as an offensive line coach. I know he was so loved around here by many.

    I have no confidence in Ireland at all.


    5 gms that had losing seasons were fired today or it may have been three of them but still Miami isnt smart enough to do the right thinng nd fire the bastard .

    Let it go.
    Teflon Jeff isn't going anywhere.
    We may as well embrace him and hope he kicks *** this offseason.

    There have been lots of polls on Ireland and they all say the same, he should be fired.

    Poll or not there's basically zero chance of him being fired but there's no rule that says fans have to have a clue. But it's kinda funny that people who can't grasp the basics of running a team love to give their opinion on how the team should be run.

    Between "How I do poll" and Aquafin this thread is awesome on so many levels. Like an AOL chat room from 1997 awesome.

    But because you think he shouldn't be fired and you are, of course, an authority and have a clue, Ireland should be retained.

    He's almost certainly not getting fired, and acting as if there is a significant chance of that at this point is dumb.

    You can blame Ireland if after this draft we have another less than par season. It's time to see if he can or can't make a team this season. If we sit this time next year with anything less than 9-10 wins he will and should be looking for a new job. For now we just have to deal with it.

    Unfortunately, no.

    I can't say that I have authority or a clue, though I am significantly less clueless than the people who have made firing Ireland the main topic of discussion for the past 5 months. We might as well have been talking about which QB we should take in the first round this year to replace Tannehill.

    The thing about all these ousted head coaches is, it provides an opportunity to add pieces to your coaching staff that you didn't have before. I don't think we should just assume that all of our coaching assistants are the most qualified people for the job. When a head coach gets ousted a lot of his staff are given permission to flee for better jobs. Miami would do well to take note of that.

    Mike McCoy interviewing with Chicago. Rex Ryan has his press conference cancelled. Ron Rivera and Norv set to be whacked later today.

    I find it interesting that someone says we have no clue as fans as to how an NFL team is or should be run. I guess consecutive losing seasons and an obvious lack of talent is an apparition and should be ignored. I have a clue that if Jeff Ireland messes up this draft and doesn't get at least part of the talent this team is void in then some of the Ireland apologists will be jumping ship. A 28-0 loss to a division rival on the last game of the season is a clue to me that we are not even close to where we want to be. I don't think the question is whether we as fans have a clue, I think the more appropriate question is, "Does Jeff Ireland have a clue?

    Surprsing about Ron Rivera. Thought he'd be given another chance.

    Rex Ryan shouldn't be fired, IMO. I don't think he will be but if he was that wouldn't be good for the Jets. I think he's a good coach. He needs help.

    I'm a little surprised about Lovie Smith out in Chicago even though them losing yesterday made it possible. I mean he's been there so damn long. Brandon "Nursing Home Kitty" Marshall strikes again. But that team is a mess. Cutler is such a douche. Urlacher needs to retire. They are a long ways away.

    For the Bills... they will never learn... which is good for us. If their GM lasts, it's also great for us. The man that overpaid for Fitzpatrick and spent the farm on Mario Overrated Williams.

    Jets are keeping Rex Ryan. lol...

    Chan Gailey is another Mike Sherman. Hired on his past accomplishments but in reality really sucks. I pray Sherman is hired as Buffalos next HEAD COACH. He will not make it more then Gailey did until he gets the boot. Gailey, like Sherman, was to be their offensive GUHRU both should have been ****t canned loooooong time ago.
