Until Ross wakes up and sees what a debacle Ireland has turned this team into, we have no hope. I'm not sold on Flynn that's for sure, but we need something and it's better than just sitting around with our thumbs up our asses. IF we get Flynn I understand getting rid of Marshall. He's an ass and he takes his troubles out on the QB all the time. He blamed Henne for EVERYTHING but he still seemed to drop everything that mattered when Moore was around. Just because you played well in basically a Flag Football game (i.e. pro-bowl) doesn't mean crap.
I still agree that Ireland needs to go, but I'm not sad to lose Marshall. Whether he beats women or not.
Marshall still had 1200 yards receiving last year. Whether he dropped too many passes last year, the fact remains that he was our ONLY receiver that was any good. Just look at the dreck we have now. Bess is a decent slot receiver that's a somewhat dependable safety outlet for the QB, but he's basically good for ten or fifteen yards when he gets open. Otherwise, a Division II d-back could do a pretty good job covering the Brian Hartlines and Clyde Gates of the world.
Just think about it, Devon Bess is our best receiver. Our best wide-out is Brian friggin' Hartline.
We're going to be the worst team in the NFL this year, mark my words. It's just too bad that Ireland's greatest idiocies weren't reserved for this past year when Andrew Luck is available. Maybe we get the consolation prize in Matt Barkley, but my sense is that he'll be Mark Sanchez 2.0 as a pro.
I didn't think anyone could be worse than Rick Speilman. But oh boy have I been wrong.
