    I actually thought Tampa had some nice talent on the team at the start of last season but the coach completely lost the team and Freeman regressed big time under Schiano. Like any GM if you miss on the QB you're not long for your job but they had a terrible coach along with a bad QB -- wouldn't have mattered if every other player they added was a probowler, that team was always dead in the water.

    As good as that sounds I just don't believe Ross has the balls to do that. He probably pulled Hickey aside and promised that no matter what he will still have a shot next season. IF we completely fail next season I want to clean house completely and if Ross isn't able to do just that, then I want him gone too!

    ... but of course none of this is happening since we have Tannehill taking us to the playoffs this year!

    Sad? Considering how poorly we've drafted in recent years, big changes in scouting should have us doing the Snoopy dance.

    The Evolution of the Tannehill Booster

    First Stage: Tannehill is going to be a star in this league.
    Second Stage: Tannehill is better than RGIII, Wilson, etc.
    Third Stage: Tannehill is better than some other AFC East quarterback except Tom Brady.
    Fourth Stage: Tannehill isn't the only problem on the team.

    I don't see Hickey getting canned too quickly either. My worry is that we're going to get caught in a leapfrog pattern where we change the head coach in a year, then we change the GM in 3 years, then a new coach in 5, then a new GM in 7... I'm not sure Ross has it in him to totally clean house in any given year.

    Not so sure. I think that might be why they hired Hickey instead of a bigger name. If Philbin is gone it might open the door to someone that wants/demands total control. If someone only wanted to come here if Hickey was gone, I don't think Hickey sticks. Then again a lot comes down to how things go this year. If the team is 5-11 I don't think Ross would have a problem firing then both for the right replacement.

    Yea, to me, it would have to be a total clusterf*** of a year for both of them to be canned....just just missing the playoffs.
