During the process of Gase being fired, there were a ton of details that all came out at the same time and it was simply impossible to process all of them at once. Most of the negativity surrounding Gase from a players standpoint was either disproved or never attributed to any specific players. However, one quote from Ross stood out quite significantly. Ross stated that Adam Gase was not interested in sticking around for a rebuild. Now, Ross may have simply been testing the waters, but it's clear that Gase remaining with the team through the carnage of a rebuild was the first option. Here's where Ross' statement gets interesting. Presuming that Ross did intend to keep Gase, and wanted to rebuild WITH him at the helm for the time being, then that means the primary disagreement that led to Gase's firing was the fact that he believed a rebuild was unnecessary. So where does that put us? Well, essentially it puts us in a position where our non-football-savvy owner disagreed directly with our football minded coach. Not only did they disagree, but in the face of that disagreement Ross set us on a very defined path and was willing to lose his head coach in order to accomplish this task. We don't know if Grier had a hand in this decision, but what we DO know is that the Miami Dolphins are currently on the trajectory that was decided upon by our non-football-savvy owner.
