Gase is fired after three seasons. So was Philbin and Sparano. Maybe one of them made it 4 years? It was such boring football, I honestly forget....and that's the entire problem. So now we're switching up GM's, head coaches and likely quarterbacks. What are our assets? A top-5 secondary, a few elite receivers/RB's and lots of young, developing players. That's attractive to someone on the outside looking in, and I think it's a plus that Tannehill could start or the next coach gets to pick his own quarterback. Leaders love options, and the Miami Dolphins have a ton of them. What will that next leader do? Their main priority will be "digging out the trenches". We need two guards and/or a center, some interior linemen and definitely a few edge guys that can get consistent pressure. Could they already be on our roster? Maybe, that depends on the scheme. That's why the most important aspect is who they bring to the party with them- coordinators, line coaches, QB whisperers, etc. Then what? Okay, we probably draft a stud LB or D lineman in the first round. Maybe we grab a few linemen and a corner after that. The roster itself looks decent, but who's taking the helm at quarterback? Surely not Tannehill. But the kid absorbs offenses like a sponge and he's always upbeat, plus he blows you away in practice. Let's hope we cut ways ASAP and the new coach doesn't get to see that stuff in training camp. Here's my problem though- Ross was asked in the press conference, "What if the team goes 3-13 next season on the way to building a true long term contender?" His answer was, "I hope not, but whatever it takes." And that terrifies me. We just went 7-9 and fired a coach for that. And we're already saying 3-13 is okay in the first year of what will likely be another 3-year experiment. That's fine if the plan is Suck for Luck II, but nothing gave me that indication from Ross's words. He expects us to be between 6-10 to 10-6 next year, by hiring "football players who want to win." Tell me this people...what players don't want to win? I'm 45 and used to play football, plus I want to win really bad. Could I start at quarterback next season? Pretty please? I do like that Ross handed off all decisions to Grier....and I know nothing about the guy except his name isn't Stephen Ross (his key benefit so far). Once again, we're rolling the dice with one person being a mastermind to figure everything out in the next 60 days, and I'm sorry folks....I just don't have the faith. Why'd we fire Gase? According to Ross, "because he wants to win now. Every 4th year coach wants to win now." But I'm confused....Ross wants people who wants to win. But we fired Gase because he wants to win now? Are you guys following the incredibly ridiculous logic here? It may be the dumbest thing I've ever heard a team owner say out loud. As I said, I don't know anything about Grier. Hopefully he's a mastermind because the people around him clearly aren't. And hopefully he has more of a plan than finding young talent that raises their hands when he asks the room, "Who likes winning at stuff?" Again, my hand is raised. Tag me in coach...I like winning a lot! Just ask my family how many times I've lost at Monopoly around our dining room table over the past 2 decades! Zero. Nada. I'm a ruthless winning machine. Ross will love me. I really, really want to be optimistic that we're on the path to being what everyone wants, but we already know how internal promotions go. There's no pressure to win today, but we're going to fire you in the next 12 months if we don't make the playoffs. Grier just accepted a no-win position with an average team that's about to take yet another reboot, with absolutely no guidance from the owner and a meaningless blueprint. A lot of you here say Grier is a superstar- hopefully you're right. Because this is EXACTLY how a decade of rebuilding has started for us twice in the past two decades....we promote from within on a spur of the moment decision without even scheduling a single interview. The ONLY THING that can stop us from repeating the same dumb mistakes of the past is if Grier is a pimp daddy of a GM, despite never holding the position before and never actually interviewing for the role elsewhere. And who made that decision? The dumbest owner in the history of professional sports. Forgive me if I'm not brimming with confidence.
