    “I wouldn’t go on a team with Jeff Ireland. I’m not very confident in him,” said Crowder, who has been hosting his Miami-based radio show from Indy all week. “He doesn’t know what he’s doing in my opinion. He’s real disrespectful, he doesn’t know how to deal with people and the whole Dez Bryant (situation) kind of showed to the world what he’s about, but guys in the building know what he’s really about.”http://blogs.nfl.com/2012/02/01/cro...not-a-good-person/?module=HP11_headline_stack

    Welcome to corporate America Crowder, where most in leadership positions are not good people. Get used to it buddy!

    That's a peculiar thing for Crowder to say publicly. Very peculiar. Does not speak well for Crowder. That's the type of thing you keep to yourself. Football players sometimes lack translation abilities to real life. That's just not the type of thing you say out loud, Channing.

    Ireland, on the other hand, just does not come across well. Maybe he can get a PR person to help. He may be solid at identifying talent, but he does not present well. Part of being a GM is being able to speak well and represent the organization. He needs help in that area. If all he wants to do is sit in a room with a projector, then fine, be a scout. But he is a GM, and there are other responsibilities.

    Channing should think about what other GM's are thinking when he runs his mouth about Ireland DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY

    Considering the source, this actually elevates Ireland in my eyes.

    Maybe Ireland told that buggy-eyed goon that he is slow, can't cover the pass and runs his mouth too much. Guess the truth hurts huh Channing?

    Lawd, Clam Chowder will grab onto anything these days to grab just even the slightest bit of attention.
    Guess he still has a sour taste in his mouth from all the mess he talked on the field, cause he has backed it up quite nice by sitting on the couch after being cut.

    That's pretty transparent on your part imo. I bet if Crowder's mouth was just as big and he was a play maker, you'd think differently.

    Well, you'd be wrong. And since you clearly don't know me, I'm not sure how you could make such an assumption. I'm not the type of person who excuses assaholism for good performance. You could look back at my opinions on bringing Vick here and whether I would rather have Rex Ryan as our coach than Sparano and why. But why do that when it's so much easier to just assume the worst, right?

    Your post actually says more about you than it does about me. Thanks for showing yourself.

    Well whether you like Crowder as a player or a person I think there are merits to what he is saying. I think Ireland has been an Ok GM definately not as bad as many we have had but I have little doubt that some people view him the same as Crowder. I gave Irleand due blast for even touching on the prostitute/pimp issue in an interview but Im not going to base my whole judgement on this one incident. I would have preferred with started fresh with another GM but Im ok with giving Jeff another year as GM.

    If Crowder played as well as he ran his mouth he'd be a Hall of Famer. The guy was slow and was exposed time after time when trying to cover Tight Ends. He NEVER made any game changing plays or big hits on the ball carrier. He was all talk and little action.

    You're right. My apologies. What I speculated on seems to be the norm on here. I should've simply asked what your thoughts were instead of assuming.

    Of course thats the mo of this board. Some of the same people that will hold Ireland blameless for our three straight losing seasons.

    back to that same point. When taylor left the first time all we did was blame Taylor then years later Parcells quits on us and is a scumbag. Even back to the Culpepper situtaion its like some people assume the FO can do no wrong at least till they are fired or quit.

    While he wasn't really a playmaker, I don't think he was THAT bad a player. And it did seem like he helped with communication on D. But there are numerous examples of the guy being a loudmouth jackass, thus you have to consider the source.

    Ireland's job is NOT public relations. There is a separate dept for that. His job is to procure talent for this team. It doesn't really matter if people like him or not. He's not a coach and does not deal with players day to day.

    Maybe if Crowder made a big tackle or forced an INT/Fumble just ONCE in his whole career I would say, "Damn straight Channing, we hear you bro!!!!!" Zach Thomas on his worst day was 100% better than this turd.

    Lots of people thought that Ireland's questioning of Dez Bryant was inappropriate. I did not see that question as inappropriate. Anyone who has been in the military has been asked far worse questions, especially if you have a security clearance.

    You don't get much more immature than that. Keep your opinions to yourself. Especially if your unemployed.

    in my opinion Crowder was average and Ireland is average. Crowder didn't make big plays and Ireland tends to fail at doing anything beyond average to improve the team. But Ireland is still with the team so he is great.

    Clowning Chowder is bitter because Ireland exposed him for what he was.

    A barnacle suckling off the teat of the Dolphins.

    He was not ever a very good linebacker. Ever.
    He constantly mis-read plays, and ran like he was dragging a freakin piano so he couldn't recover.
    He couldn't cover Jake Long in the flat much less down field, and he constantly ran his mouth, often giving the other team locker room fodder.

    He was cut, and was asked to try out for exactly one team. 1. That was the Cheatriots, who are ALWAYS in dire need of a linebacker, yet he wasn't ever asked back for a second day. If none of you trust Ireland's view of Clowning Chowder, how do you feel about Coach Billy not even giving him a second day?

    To top that off, not one of the other 30 teams in the league asked him to play. Anybody want to venture why?


    Keep running your mouth there Clowning, it is the only way you know how to run.

    Wouldn't be surprising since the Meadowlands has become the dumpster for a lot of our discarded garbage.
