It really blows goats that it appears to have come down to this being our best option.
It's funny that before this whole process started the statement released by the team stated that they were going to find the best, most experienced talent evaluator for the team Now by a string of subtractions we're going to have to take whoever is left who wants the job.
ALL of the top evaluators don't want any part of this team.
You'd think that Peterson at the very least, would've had some awareness being part of that ****ing "scommittee" that evaluated GMs for the NFL would have some ****ing heads up to MR. Ross as to how to go about this process and open the franchise up to be able to make this position a most attractive destination for the BEST candidates.
Ross famously stated he wanted to be "best in class". Are you ****ing kidding me?
If the initial feedback was not one or two guys, but about 5 top evaluators from across the country won't come here, I would've reassessed the entire process and structure before even starting the interviews.
And if it meant firing people to ensure that things were built properly from the ground up to establish that level of excellence I would've spared to resource to ensure it's success.
It takes discipline to not formulate opinions about something WITHOUT KNOWING ALL THE FACTS.
Yeah it's what some of us have been saying. If the Cerubus fails, it's an easy answer. Kill one beast with three heads. Clean sweep.
Ross should have cleaned house when he fired Sparano, but he didn't. Ross should have cleaned house when he fired Ireland, but he didn't. I think that Ross is afraid of making a clean sweep because he'd rather keep some semblance of continuity than start from scratch. The problem is this team has been so bad for so long that a complete housecleaning is exactly what's needed!
Ross now has to settle for "leftovers" at the GM position because he stubbornly decided to keep Philbin and his staff (except for Sherman). Philbin and Coyle's tinkering with the defense was just as bad as Philbin and Sherman's running of the offense. Philbin and Coyle's scheme changes turned the 3rd ranked rushing defense into the 24th, when all they needed to do was to upgrade the secondary. Philbin may seem ultra-organized off the field, but he's clueless on game day, as evidenced by the lack of adjustments on both his offense and defense.
I disagree with picking Gaine by default. For one, I still believe that Tannehill has a good chance to develop into that "Franchise QB". However, that will never happen until he gets an offensive line to block for him, and running backs who can block better on blitzes. We need someone to make this offseason count. Otherwise, we have ruined another QB hopeful and we will be starting all over with a QB search.
