Good for him. He is right. The whole organization needs to be cleaned out again. The problem, however, is I do not trust Stephen Ross to pick the right guys. I hope he does not hire a big name coach and give him all the personnel power. I do not believe that is the right way to set up your organization. I believe the best way to do it is to get a great personnel man, and then let him hire a head coach. It does not have to be a splashy, big name guy. He just needs to be smart at x's and o's.
Unfortunately, I agree. I can picture Ross bringing in a coach/GM that will allow him to have input on personnel moves. Rarely has that ever worked for an organization and while Ross has stated that he doesn't want to get involved with the football side of things, after the current debacle, I think he would feel obligated to stay involved once his new staff is in place.
hopefully ross is reading this, jeff ireland and sparano are a joke.
Cutting Benny Sapp was dumb. I know a lot of posters agreed with it at the time, but how do you cut your 3rd best CB after 1 game?? Now we could use him and instead we are picking up Nate Jones and hoping Nolan Carroll can get his act together.
don't worry....it'll all be over soon.
Secretly I wonder... me thinks Ireland is going to cave in Sparano, and is also eye-balling Barkley and Luck with a new HC
Jeff knew then and knows this second that Will Allen is DONE... and that's why Sapp got the job... Will can't stay healthy but when you give up as much yards as the Dolphin D week one you can't stand pat someone had to get the axe... Will Allen and his questionable tweets after the Pats game don't get the job done - too bad you can't cover a guy talking it up with your mouth or VD and W Allen would be scary
I have question marks about Ireland too but something tells me he survives this fiasco
