We've been waiting five years for Ross' business savvy, the real estate expertise that made him a billionaire four times over, to pay off for the Dolphins, a franchise lacking a solid foundation.
Problem is our wait might be in vain because the last GM Ross committed himself to (Ireland) wasted time and money. And the head coach Ross hand-picked (Joe Philbin) is as dull as a butter knife, which might explain why his team wasn't sharp in the final two games of 2013, with the franchise's first playoff berth since 2008 on the line.
And he doesn't have any evidence the power structure he's building, which puts the next GM at the same status as Philbin and Dawn Aponte, the Vice President of Football Administration, works.
After this hire Ross will run out of reasons/excuses/justification for why the Dolphins haven't turned the corner, becoming perennial playoff team, and the only place left to look will be in the mirror.
