IPS vs Firewall

I am to give a presentation concerning IPS vs. IDS and why we have decided to implement an IPS solution. I have stuff about each of those, but my big problem is going to come from my LAN/WAN group. Because I've decided to place the IPS outside the firewall, they have already moaned about it and I know they're going to bring up why we need IPS vs. Firewall. I have stuff about what firewalls don't look for or do compared to IPS.

My question is, how would you go about showing that firewalls or BigIP routers can be attacked directly? For those of you concidering IPS, can you impart any of the knowledge gained by implementing your solutions?

Many thanks,
