I think they are setting Naruto and company up to be the next legendary sannin; Sasuke will no longer be able to be a ninja once he returns to the village (HES A FRIGGIN DESSERTER!)
The strenght of the members of Akatsuki have never been established. If each one of them were that strong, getting the Bijuu to obtain power would be unnecesary.And Naruto beat an Akatskui wich is stronger than a hokage.
I have my theory on Iruka too, I think that Iruka is stronger than we think or imagine. Of course that's considering how Konoha works and the way the third used to think. Maybe his work is to stay in low profile till it be the moment act.
Who was the man next to Sandaime Hokage? Iruka
Who is the man next to Gondaime Hokage? Iruka
The third used to think, that the king are the children which are the future generation of Konoha, Asuma understood this before his death and Shikamaru understood this after his fight with Hidan, when he was playing shogi with his father (Shikaku).
Who works at the Academy?
Who was in charge of evacuating the children?
Short answer: Iruka.
In other words the most precious thing for konoha are their future (children) and and the most precious thing for someone is always well protected. Iruka's strenght remain as one of the best well kept secret. I think that he is one of the character that must die in order to move the story foward at some point. But I feel that he is going to give a huge surprise to all the fans when the time arrives. I also consider Kakashi words to Iruka, when he say that Naruto's rivalry with Sasuke makes him to work harder and that his making progress, there's a pause there. Then kakashi says someday he will be strong as you.
As for Naruto, I vote yes for the chunim exams for him. even if it only happens as a filler in the anime.

Kakashi says that Naruto has already surpassed him and Kakashi is already considered a relatively high level jounin. The chunin test would be pointless for him unless its purely for comedic reasons. Maybe he can be the first genin that jumps to Hokage lol.
it would be a bit weird to naruto beat up some little kids. or would it?
I think that Naruto should just jump up to jonin.
Sakura's face would be so funny.
The Sharingan. Two must battle over it. One will survive.
What I said is based on the way Sandaime used to think about Konoha, check the chapters where Asuma and Shikamaru are playing shougi and check the chapter where Shikamaru plays shougi against his father (that is after hidan dies).
Shikaku tells shikamaru that he is not strong enough to protect the children. By the way I said that it was a theory based on how Konoha thinks. So an Iruka acting like a weakling because he was ordered to fall as a possibble theory.

well i wouldent be surprised if iruka is a little stronger than weve seen but he is only a chunin. i mean if he was stronger wouldnt he at least be a sqad leader or the type of jounin ebisu was in part 1
