Found October 05, 2011 on NBC Miami:
Stephen Ross is no Chicken Little. His Miami Dolphins are 0-4 and looking nothing like a competent football team, he refuses to admit the sky is falling. Ross has already gone on record in support of head coach Tony Sparano. It turns out he is also a believer in general manager Jeff Ireland. The Miami Herald reported Wednesday that the Dolphins owner has not considered replacing Ireland (unlike Sparano, whose dismissal is nearly assured despite Ross' recent vote of confidence). "Ross believes Ireland is a smart, savvy talent evaluator, even though several of his moves haven't panned out," according to the Herald. While the consensus amongst the fan base seems to be the team has major talent deficits on offense and defense, Ireland has somehow convince Ross "that Miami should have enough good players to be a good team." Maybe Ross should double-check to make sure his GM has been watching the 2011 Dolphins, and not, say, a highlight reel of the 1972 ...

  • Ireland has proven he can't draft. He still uses his notes from Dallas for FA. Tony is part of the problem (see play calling & time management), but Ireland has failed to bring in stable talent to the Phins. Dear Mr. Ross please walk Jeff out the door and lock it behind him. Thanks - A fan since 1978! PS. We miss you Don! All that winning and playoff appearances really spoiled us.
