    Armando: Ireland job doesn't appear at risk

    http://miamiherald.typepad.com/dolph...r-and-gen.html

    Despite the fact the team is likely headed to a fourth consecutive season out of the playoffs and perhaps a fourth consecutive losing season, I am told there has been zero discussion about replacing general manager Jeff Ireland. And obviously, head coach Joe Philbin isn't on the one-and-done road last traveled by Cam Cameron. He's not going anywhere, either.

    So firings in Miami seem at this point unlikely.
    Ireland's relationship with Ross also remains strong. The men continue to speak almost on a weekly basis and some weeks more often than that. Same with coach Joe Philbin. By contrast, once Sparano fell out of favor with Ross, the two talked only occasionally.

    Another reason there isn't a huge likelihood anyone will be fired is Ross is a strong believer in continuity. He is convinced an NFL team needs it to succeed. Ross, you'll remember, stayed with Sparano and Ireland once he took over ownership even though he had no allegiance to either man.

    Continuity is great when youre continuing something thats working. When youre continuing something that has still shown no progress 5 years in, it just becomes Einstein's definition of insanity.

    Well said.

    For the first time since the 60's(or pre-Shula) weve had 4 consecutive losing seasons. And yet the reason Ross wants to keep Ireland is "continuity". Sounds about right for Miami Dolphins logic.

    Now i know why fans question if Ross wants to win.
    "Ignorance is not an excuse" were the words Goodell used when describing why those involved in the Saints bounty scandal would not avoid punishment.

    There are going to be empty seats with or without Jeff Ireland. Just how the locals roll.
