    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.

    THIS MAY BE A ONE-YEAR, ONE-OFF DEAL.

    Go ahead and give Gaine a shot. Even make him an "interim" if you want. Just shut down the permanent GM search at this point and keep what you have. That is the best way to stop the hemorrhaging of bad press and public embarrassments.

    We won't know what the future holds in the long run until this time next year anyway. The Lexus is still a year away, your kid needs braces. Think of it in that light.

    I don't think a one year flop is an option. They have to get the right guy in this year or we could be in real trouble. Think of the mess we'll have on our hands after next season if we crap the bed again. I say do whatever it takes to get Caserio!

    If Gaine is hired I would consider the whole process to be a sham, where everyone in the organization is protecting their own interests. For me to have any hope for the future we need an outsider who has the power to actually change the status quo, not protect it.

    I won't find any solace in Brian Gaine. It's as similar as Cam Cameron asking us to appreciate the Ted Gin ****ing family.

    What started off as an offseason of hope has turned into one of embarrassment and ridicule. So we can endure it for another season?

    There was so much potential.

    My faith is absolutely gone.

    Gone.
    I feel ya. We had 60 million in cap space and 11 draft picks and it resulted in a big pile of poo!

    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.
