    This makes me think that nothing will change. It could have happened already.

    And that story line is fed to us by the media.

    No one knows whats going on in Ross' head.

    I think (hope) Ross is waiting for the bullying report to come out before he fires anyone. But I know for sure I'd be firing everyone when the report comes out. I'll never believe the people we put on the field the last two games are worse players than the teams which beat us. And to me that means we were out-prepared and out-coached. At the most critical time of the season, they failed.

    Fire all of them.

    Ross is too emotionally attached....Where are his balls that made him a real estate mogul?

    Jeff Ireland has some kind of compromising information on Ross.

    Only explanation at this point.

    Maybe because Eric Mangini is not available yet.

    You want someone hired before someone is fired? He tried that.

    No. Maybe....absolute speculation...he wants to hire Mangini to assess the situation to fire, keep etc. He cannot do it just yet because Mangini has a big game at Lambeau.

    Listen up all you haters. Haven't you ever heard of karma. In a nutshell, the more bad you wish on people the more it gets reflected back on you. Try concentrating on something positive instead of people getting fired. And stop acting like a Yankee fan (like you're entitled or something) this team only missed the playoffs by one game.

    very true! I just need to take a break from my dolphins for a while to get rid of all this negativity! We all should keep in mind that at the end of the day it will play out the way it plays out and there is no reason to obsess over something we have no control over!

    For the apologist who keep on saying "We only missed the playoffs by one game".....and What? you think this pathetic irrelevant team would have gone far in the playoffs?????? The bar for pathetic Ireland, wimp Philbin and clueless Sherman, division championship, superbowl and World Champs...........but as I mentioned in a previous post ..........the "woosification of Miami football is now complete" we have become totally irrelevant............hopefully the fans particularly those lucky enough to be around in the 70's will not become tolerant of such mediocity. There is absolutely no question that Ross should have been ready to fire the whole lot and be on the offensive for looking for a replacement. Anything short of that (which is what has happened) is a total failure in my modest opinion. GO HEAT!!!!!!!!!!

    we've only become irrelevant to emotionally high-strung, overreacting fans. The general consensus outside of the dolphins fan base is that we are close.

    close to what exactly?

    we've had 2 winning seasons and 1 playoff appearance in the last 10 years. emotionally high strung? **** that noise.They're not emotionally high strung, they're sick of people acting like the product on the field is acceptable.

    Apologist fans are like the douchebags who peaked in high school and spent the last 10 years talking about how great they were 10 years ago.

    A real owner would've fired everyone right after the Jests game.

    Because Ross doesn't make reactionary, emotionally-driven, bad decisions. He makes deliberate, slow, and plodding bad decisions. :ponder:

    He's a billionaire and we're not. His decision making process is most likely a bit more refined than the reactionary crowd on this forum. I'd like to see changes but knee jerk decisions are not something I want from anyone with authority.

    Ross himself admitted he wasn't prepared for the possibility that they would lose the last 2 games AND he gave the Red Menace an extension during the season after an awful offseason draft/FA class. What does that say about his football decision making process to you?

    Lol I love this argument. He's richer than me therefore he MUST be smarter than me. Particularly when it comes to evaluating football people because that has a TON to do with real estate development....
    The guy is a blowjob. Ireland shouldve been gone years ago and the team quit on Philbin. Anyone who can't see that has no business being in football in any capacity.

    Wrong. Ireland was extended before the season. They waited to announce it during the season to try to soften the fan revolt.

    To elaborate on my point, Ross isn't exactly a rags to riches business genius story. His uncle, Max Fisher was huge money in Detroit back in the 40s and 50s. He owned one of the largest chains of gas stations in the Midwest. He died with a net worth of 775 million.
    Ross came from money, lots of it. There is such a thing as DUMB LUCK in life. And Ross appears to put the DUMB in dumb ****ing luck

    Whatever, he was extended before it was necessary OR earned.

    Is there a rush for Ross to make a decision?

    This pretty much echos how I feel about the last 72+ hours

    I was at the Jests game and let me tell you, it was such a depressing game to be at. I wanted Ireland and the entire coaching staff fired by halftime. From where I was sitting, you could smell Sherman crapping his pants when the Jets took a one score lead. It was either that or the Jests fans sitting near me. Something smelled like ****.

    Maybe so, but I guess I just don't have a problem with him thinking it through. I agree status quo is unacceptable.

    Just to be clear... I really wasn't criticizing the length of deliberation. I was lamenting the fact that we really can't count on Ross to do the right thing despite taking an extended amount of time to think about it.

    I think if Ross was going to fire the Red Menace he would have done it already. Could Ross just "promote" Ireland to something with a cool and important sounding title but has no actual power or influence?
