Post Ross Announcement May Come in Next 24 hrs
Ross is returning to Dolphins' Facility today............"Many inside the Dolphins' building sense a shake-up is on the way, potentially in the next 24 hours. The extent of the shake-up remains unclear." per the NFL Network

My prediction is everyone is safe. Maybe even Sherman.

Somebody is getting more power in the Front Office though, taking some away from Ireland.

That said, if God is good Ross will have enough sense to blow it all up and start clean. Hire a well respected VP and let him build from the top down.

If Ross can't see that this coaching staff's plans and adjustments get figured out after a few games then we as fans are in for a very problematic 2014.

There is no way that will happen.

Ross knows he would lose the fan base without significant changes.

If Philbin stays, I legitimately expect 5 wins.

My prediction is whatever he does , we will give it some time & once the dust settles most will be fine with it. If he blows it up opinion will be that is well deserved being the money spent in the off season , plus moving up in the draft , plus the off the field problem & then the collapse. If he makes no or minimal changes opinion will be well , we werent so bad , we were in most games , we had a real big off the field problem & played through it plus we have a QB we can build around.
If attendance werent poor , I could easily see him standing pat.

I'm willing to bet that a significant change will happen... meaning at least Mike Sherman will be fired or resign.

Want to make a sig wager on it?

I'm 50/50 on Sherman, so I won't bet that.

But I would be willing to bet he's the only one to lose his job.

I am 50/50 on Ireland getting fired... seems like Ross is struggling with going back on his word.

We may also find out how loyal Philbin is to Sherman... he is the one that contractually has to fire Sherman so will he quit instead of firing his ole buddy?

Interesting dynamics indeed.

Ha! I did say "maybe"...

I think Ross will hear Joe vouch for Sherman today and then decide on how to proceed. Doubt we hear anything until later tonight at the earliest.

This can't go well. So Philbin says keep Sherman, his play calling was fine and the players didn't execute. Then Ross looks at Ireland and says why didn't you get them guys who couldn't execute. Then Ireland looks at them and says you guys said you'd develop Miller and insisted on GO/GO GO which was predictable and helped get your QB killed...

So is their solution a new QB to save their jobs? Again, this can't go well if Ross has them sitting there explaining themselves.

If he keeps Philbin I hope he gives him the choice of GM. I think part of the problem right now is a mis match with GM and Coaching.
I dont think Sherman has a chance, and Philbin will have the choice of loyalty or career..

When you look at the other thread showing our rookie snap counts, its painfully obvious Philbin was not impressed with the picks..

Post Re: Ross Announcement May Come in Next 24 hrs
The only question mark for me is he told Ireland a while back that his job was safe. That's the only thing that really has my attention. I believe Philbin will be head coach next year, but with a new OC. Jim Turner will be fired. Philbin may end up firing more position coaches, too. I also expect us to win more than 5 games next year. If we don't, adios Philbin.

I personally think next year we are in the playoffs. I think we have a good chance at taking the division, and if we don't we will be a solid wild card in, like KC was this year...only we will have a better team than KC does this year :grin: lol

This should be a quick meeting: Assemble Ireland, Philbin, Sherman and Coyle and quickly shout GO! As they run out the door, Ross could get one of his people to lock the doors. Ross is to weathy to have to lock the door himself, but if it makes him feel good - more power.

Problem is being a fins fan means the opposite will occur - Darn IT! They will prolly just dump Sherman.

Finally someone who I fully agree with. I think there is a big mismatch between coach and gm. Philbin doesn't have much faith in the draft class yet, and honestly they didn't do much to earn any. I think this will all look a lot different at the start of next regular season. Positions will be more solidified in the aspect of our rookie guys. I don't think they could play much worse than Nolan Carroll did.

Carroll allowed 48% of the passes thrown his way to be completed, he gave up two TDs and picked up three passes, allowing a QB rating of 65.

What exactly is so terrible about that?

That's great and all, on paper. But how many of those throws were due to the QB simply missing the target. Nolan Carroll not getting burnt on a pass was a surprise to me. 1 of his interceptions was a crap throw from Thad Lewis that got blocked at the line.

Not to mention the number of times I saw him literally give up in the middle of a play, and just stand there and watch the tackle happen. One instance was against the Jets last week, when Geno scrambled for the TD he literally watched Danelle Ellerbe try and hold him back, then their RB came and pushed everyone forward.

I don't know. Do you have a stat on that? If not, why bring it up?

So basically, because he had been a bad player in previous seasons, you've made up your mind and no matter what happens, he sucks.

Ok, so all you've provided is anecdotal evidence, based on what you saw, which may or may not be accurate... but the stats I provided span over a 16 game season. I guess your argument is that Carroll simply got lucky a lot this season.

There's a reason Carroll is not a starter. There's a reason Patterson is. I'm on the fence about Ireland. He's missed on a bunch of picks sure, but he's found some gold at the same time. I like Philbin as a person, but as a head coach? If HE doesn't personally act to fix the offense then he lacks the testicular fortitude to be in that position

Well think about your argument for a minute... you said there is a reason Patterson was the starter, but here is a guy who missed 12 starts because he couldn't get on the field.

Who do you want at QB, the guy that throws 3 TDs and 300 yards a game but misses 13 games or the guy that plays all 16 games but throws 2 TDs and 250 yards a game?

That wasn't my question.

Again, Carroll allowed 48% passes completed thrown his way with 2 TDs and 3 INTs and a 65 QB rating.

What's so bad about the guy?

I'm not surprised at all, just pointing out that if they are having that type of meeting then what good could possibly come from it?

You're spot on with the fact that they need a good VP in place with a plan. That person selects the GM who selects the HC who selects the assistants he needs to put together a team with an identity.

We may all be irked with Parcells but looking back on it his plan would have worked with the correct QB. Just imagine Tannehill with the Brown/Williams duo, throwing to Marshall/Hartline, and Mike Nolan's 3-4 defense with guys on the current roster. This team would be playoff caliber every year.

To start, I watched every game this year too, and I saw how many times Nolan Carroll got burnt. No, Rich, I don't have that stat, but I will bring it up. When Patterson went down things got real awry down field.

I never spoke about the years previous, but now that you mention it he hasn't been great...obviously since the only reason he has seen ANY playing time this year is because A. We let Richard Marshall go, and B. Patterson got hurt. Congrat's to him that he beat out a few rookie corners.

If Nolan Carroll was the guy defending Amendola on that last drive against NE I would almost bet money we lose that game. Sucks, I know, but it's the truth.

I'm not sure why you got so defensive over it, calm down.

Coaches should not be hiring GMs.

Not sure how they could mismatched. Ireland jettisoned the top talent for Philben, because he is to lazy to do the hard stuff. Like coach players.

Omar Kelly tweeted the pick of Ross' helicopter leaving the Stadium tonight. I presume he's leaving Florida for a bit. Not sure where he's going............north of the Mason Dixon Line is under a blizzard. Anyway, he appears to be going away to reflect ..........not sure we can expect an announcement this week.

That is if he did it for him or not, all I ever heard is he said she said stuff, never once read a legit report quoting that Philbin requested a player cut or traded.

I do not understand why its so bad to have the coaches involved anyway. Dont most coaches go to things like the senior bowl, combine etc to evaluate players?

I never once bought into Philbin requesting players traded in order to agree to come here.. If thats the case he already has control in personnel, which is why they turned others down and ended up with Philbin...

I think Ireland saw a ballooning contract with Marshall and dumped it before he was stuck. I think he saw a player in Davis that was going to hit FA because he would want more than hes worth and took what he could for him.

I could only wish, but we know the truth is hidden under 1000 articles of "sources close" bs...


We have overpaid for this one, let that one go etc.. Its a mess really when I look at the body of work, they all should be fired...


Now here is what troubles me...

Quote:
Chris Grier begins his 14th season with the Dolphins and his fourth as the team's Director of College Scouting. He served as an area scout with the club from 2000-02 before being promoted to National Scout/Assistant Director of College Scouting in 2003.


So we have done so well drafting since 2003 that this guy has not budged???? Actually got a promotion? WTF???

Ireland traded for him & then after a new coach is hired they trade him on the first day that players could be traded & Marshall is traded. All point to Philben not wanting to be his coach.

I do not understand why its so bad to have the coaches involved anyway. Dont most coaches go to things like the senior bowl, combine etc to evaluate players?
Having coaches involved is why Miami ended up with John Jerry instead of Jimmy Graham. Coaches fell in love with Jerry at the Senior Bowl ( From Reports )

I never once bought into Philbin requesting players traded in order to agree to come here.. If thats the case he already has control in personnel, which is why they turned others down and ended up with Philbin...
Never heard that.

I think Ireland saw a ballooning contract with Marshall and dumped it before he was stuck. I think he saw a player in Davis that was going to hit FA because he would want more than hes worth and took what he could for him.
Anything is possible on Marshall. Not buying it.. Davis was 2 yrs away from FA at the time of the trade.

Maybe they have ignored his reports & went with what they thought.
