I guess this will mean changes in the scouting department, can't say that makes me sad
Yea Licht is clearing house, hired a pats bigshot this morning. Plenty more fired Tampa guys will flock to Miami... joy lol
He is obviously a guy who Dennis Hickey knows and trusts. They probably work well together.
Stephen Ross made the big decision to appoint Hickey as GM and I think that he has made a good start. I fully support him getting the key people around him that he wants.
We have Hickey because Ross wanted a GM who would specifically work with Philbin. If Philbin goes then Ross will want a big name, throwing record money at Harbaugh or someone like that, a big name coach will blow up the entire building and bring in his own guys. Every1 gets fired if this year goes badly
Yea and everyone was speculating the same thing when Ireland was on the hotseat. So, I see your point. I just don't see it panning out that way. And honestly, even if we miss the playoffs, I think Ross likes Philbin enough to give the GM & Coach a few years together...especially when it's well known that Ireland and Philbin wanted different players. You guys always seem to want too many changes, IMO. Keep making GM & Coach changes every year and w're going to keep getting the same results.
