    If you dont evaluate your personel at the end of every year, what kind of owner would he be?
    So you think he would have said the exact same thing?

    I disagree.

    Well it is out of context if you dont list the other relevant info surrounding that quote, which you didnt. I think the part about "I am committed to him" is pretty relevant.

    I don't.
    The fact that Philbin's job is likely connected to Ireland's job, they are pretty much the same question.

    Can Ross just shut up for once? Worst owner in sports right now.

    It's not out of context if the next statements don't contradict and/or qualify what he just got done saying. Saying he's committed to him does not change the fact that he just essentially admitted Jeff Ireland is going to remain or be fired based on what happens this year. That's what it means when you say you're taking something year to year. If he led in with "I'm committed to Jeff Ireland" and didn't say anything about conducting an evaluation at the end of the year, then this wouldn't be a story, however he essentially answered "yes" to the question of whether the Dolphins need to win this year for Ireland to keep his job.

    I don't think he would have answered the same way about Philbin. I think he has a difficult time imagining any circumstances under which he's evaluating Philbin at the end of the year and deciding to part with him.

    Based on what? Never seen this stated, implied, or even hinted at before.

    Don't think he would have because everyone gets a honeymoon period. But sometimes you just get a feeling something isn't quite right and in that case you should get rid of them but probably don't and end up regretting it, can't see Ross having those feelings about Philbin though.

    Ireland is in his 5th season with the Dolphins which have not been very successful. Ross' answer was appropriate. Fans know it. Ireland knows it. If they fail Ireland gets fired by Ross.

    If Ross is commenting on his first year coach he does not answer the same way. If he does, he's a bigger idiot then originally believed.

    Disagree. Wouldn't surprise me if Ross plucked someone willing to accept Philbin as the Head Coach if needed.
