    Spoke to my source this AM after waking up and witnessing all these Harbaugh stories. Had to thank the guy for hooking us up here on Finheaven.com. The latest is that Ross is in Jerry Jones Mode, he says Ross is willing to do anything & everything to make this team a contender. Like Armando Salguero reported Ireland & Nolan are untouchable to Ross, he loves both guys especially Nolan.

    Tells me Cowher with all his demands really turned off the team. He says the talks between Ross & Harbaugh have been extremely positive and their is a real good chance this happens. They have been meeting for the last week & the reason Ireland was at the Standford practices was because he was pursuing Harbaugh. Things are moving very fast and smooth so stay tuned.

    Hiring Harbaugh would remove any of the doubts I have about Ross, and I had a lot when we first got him.

    We could actually have a guy who knows how to run an offense.

    Keeping Ireland gives me plenty of doubt despite a new coach. Will Ireland work with the new coach to get the players he needs or will it be more O-line and D-line in the early rounds of the draft?

    I hope you are right, there is a lot of info out there now. Its like a roller coaster ride of info now. Can't wait til its over and we see who we have. Harbaugh with Nolan as DC and (ANYONE else at OC) would be good.

    Since you aren't a reporter, why can't you tell us who your source is?

    This would be fantastic if it comes to fruition! I like the idea of a young coach who is a winner, has NFL ties, and will have an established GM to handle the personnel duties. I believe that was Saban and Wanny's undoing as they were not suited to handling personnel and coaching entirely. I could definitely live with Harbaugh, Ireland, Nolan and a cracker-jack OC. Then, we are really only a QB from being a strong playoff team although we are still a ways from being elite.

    I heard a very interesting comment today that Parcells left because he and Ireland were at each others throat. In fact, Ireland stopped coming to work. If true, it makes sense why they would keep Ireland. He is respected around the league as a personnel man.

    I would like to see Tony return but it's not up to me sooooooooo maybe we do fire him and Harbaugh does not leave Stanford where does that leave us then? Who else would be on the list of HC that you would like to see?

    If this happens, we must do EVERYTHING and ANYTHING to get Andrew Luck. I don't care if we have to give up our 1st rounder for the next 3 or 4 years- get Andrew Luck at all costs.

    What exactly has he done to even warrant a 4th season has head coach? Read Ricky's comments and then reevaluate your stance.

    You Da Man!! Thanks for the info! This is good news. I am glad to see Ross values Nolan so much. It would be critical if they do bring in JH for him to have a guy like Nolan to run the D side. Ireland has made some good and bad moves. Th eproblem is with BP around you never knew whose move it really was. PWhite for ex: I have to believe that was BP's call.

    After reading Ricky's comments I have a new outlook on Sparano. Ricky has been through this entire thing before with Wanny and if he is ready to bail on the Fins because of Sparano and his conservative game planning I trust his judgement. I feel the rest of the quotes we are getting are just lip speak and if Sparano is replaced we will get the real info on what the players think. I don't however want our new coach (if one is hired )to get rid of Ireland or Nolan. Ireland is well respected througout the league has a personal man/scout and I really want to see what he can do without Parcells looking over his shoulder. Nolan has already turned our D around so losing him would definitely suck. I suppose the worst outcome would be us keeping Sparano with him having to find a new OC. Hopefully he would bring in one with as much talent and vision as Nolan and lets him do likewise/do his own gameplanning/game day calls without any imput. Then he could still be what he is today, a fist-pumping, pom pom waiving, sidelines cheerleader with HC as his title.

    I'm not a van fan of posts that start off by saying "My source tells me"... why would they tell you anything in confidence when you come here and blab it all over?

    Why do you have "sources" when guys who get locker room credentials can't?

    If you're this good you should be a reporter instead of pumping gas.

    Any one of us could start a thread like this. Mine would like.. "A friend of my brother has a sister who is dating the cousin of someone who went to school with the bother of Ross"..

    All speculation...

    You do realize that some of the posters on this sight have close personal relationships with people working in the Dolphins orginization. I'm not saying I'm one of them but I definitely know a few of them do. Sure what we get from them is heresay that trickles through the organization but some of the times, heck alot of the time the info is spot on. I for one living 1800 miles away am thankful for any spec of info we can get on the situation at this time. Especially something that doesn't come from the major new source BSPN.

    Do we really want to go the "hottest college coach" route again? Wasn't O-Saban-bin-Lyin' enough? I would rather keep Jeff & Tony, & get a new OC. We need to find the next Sean Payton or Mike Tomlin. They weren't exactly household names you know.

    i highly doubt someone within the organization is going to keep giving info to someone who always spills the beans on some fan forum. why would they risk their job for that?

    That's your choice. I don't trust anything that doesn't come from "reliable" sources. Just because they work for the Dolphins doesn't make them reliable.

    Just imagine how many people work in the organization, gotta be atleast a couple hundred maybe more. There is no way you can pin down who is letting out information, especially speculative information where most people are just guessing from small bits of info they have heard through the grape vine. Case in point look how many different stories are out there right now regarding Sparano/Cower/Harbaugh. Each one may/probably has it's own source, yet we don't hear how the Fins have fired 20 people because they leaking inside info. In today's age of technology/email/texting/twitter its just to hard to keep secrets.

    Hope this is true! This is Ross' first major decision as a Dolphins owner. If he wants his place in franchise history, he needs to put his mouth where his money is and make the right call here. The pressure must be intense but I'm sure he's faced tough decisions before and you don't become a billionaire by making bad ones.

    you really think theres a couple hundred people that are in on what ross is thinking?

    these "sources" have supplied about 30 different scenarios in the past week, eventually somebody has to get it right.

    It's not about trust. It's about taking all of the information that is out there and formulating an opinion on it. My take through all of the rumors out there is Ross is definitely trying to upgrade the HC position. He isn't however going to fire Sparano without having his replacement lined up. If he finds the replacement he wants that will work with Ireland and Nolan (who I think he wants to keep) than Sparano is gone. However, if he cant find the replacement he will keep Sparano and allow him to find a new OC and try to solve the QB problem this season. I don't like the second option but it's better than firing Sparano and not getting the man you want thus having to hire a new head coach that the owner of the team doesn't really want.
