    Philbin should be begging Aponte to stay, I believe she is the reason Philbin will retain his job. If she goes, Philbin is alone. It will be Jeff vs. Joe....battle of the idiots.

    I don't think Armando has a clue what's going on... unfortunately it's most likely that everyone will be back.... I just hope Ross doesn't embarrass us again and do the Sparano/Harbaugh nonsense again...

    Ross loves Philbin.

    And based on things we've heard about Ireland, Philbin is most certainly not alone. I'd be willing to bet 95% of that building backs Philbin.

    They still might both be fired anyway though.

    Joe Rose has strongly hinted on his radio show many times that everyone in that building hates Ireland.

    Falls in line of what others have said. It's not really a secret anymore. I'm not sure why Ross still wants to keep him around.

    I'm hoping Ross is secretly talking to others about replacing him.

    And then forcing his new GM to take a head coach he did not hire. A head coach who looks more and more incompetent as each day passes.

    How do you know GMs won't want to work with Philbin? The only fact we have is that we know nothing at all and we don't know what will happen until something does.

    While I don't doubt that some of this is true, here is the part l like. "I checked around on Sunday. No one denied the report."

    What does that REALLY mean? It never says he talked to anyone. It never says he asked anyone about the tension. It never says anyone agreed or confirmed his story. Maybe I'm dissecting things too carefully. Or maybe Mando is being a politician and saying things without saying anything.

    It's not a popularity contest. Many times you can have someone in charge hated and people under or on par with them *****ing. Then it sku's the view of the job they do to the owner. Is it results or personality. The time is here to throw out the personality issue.

    "...and give you their current situation best as sources are handicapping..."
    "...Or do neither blink..."
    This guy is paid to write in English?

    "... I checked around on Sunday. No one denied the report..."

    This is a trick that unscrupulous lawyers try to use to make silence sound like a confirmation.

    Mando sounds like a past-middle-age yenta who really knows nothing but wants to keep the pot boiling.

    If Aponte wants to leave, what's stopping her?

    She can resign and forfeit whatever she's owed under the remaidner of her contract.

    You guys realize Dawn might leave because the NFL is considering giving her a much better job right? It has nothing to do with any of our problems.

    You think she would choose a job in the NFL office over potentially being the first female GM or being the head of a football operations? She wants to leave because like everyone that has ever met him, she cannot stand Jeff Ireland and can no longer work with this SOB.

    I think he's saying Ireland wanted McCoy and Ross made the decision with Philbin.

    I don't think so because he said "new GM"

    And he may be right but we won't know that until it happens. If it even does happen.

    Armando makes it seem like Aponte wants to leave...she wants the NFL kob...has nothing to do with how she feels about the Phins. I swear..some of our perception issue..it's because of crap our local media had started.

    People have a tendency to fill in the gaps with their own subjective opinion. Ourselves included. So when there is very little solid info to go off we end up running with the story and warping it into fantasy.

    Reading comprehension and media spin are also huge roles.

    Dawn has expressed the desire to be a GM several times. You think she has suddenly changed course and has decided that a job in the NFL office is what she should be doing?

    This has everything to do with the fact that NO ONE wants to work with Jeff Ireland.

    Aponte may very well want to return to a job in the league office where she worked before. Anybody who can't acknowledge that and sees it as all about Ireland is simply not being objective.

    Yeh...actually..I was thinking the NFL job was a more lucrative position for her..but you could be right. Its interesting..because canning Ireland would seem like the easy thing to do..so why isnt he. I wonder who is giving Ross advice on keeping Ireland.

    Anyone that believes Jeff Ireland isn't the sole reason this organization has a black eye and is no longer attractive to quality people is in denial.

    There are many reasons for this franchise's struggle. Anybody who can't see that is the one in denial.

    There is ONE reason, and his name is Jeff Ireland. When you keep incompetent people in high level positions, this is what happens.

    I think Sherman more than Ireland is the top weakness and Philbins loyalty to Sherman is holding the team back. On any other team, Lamar Miller would have 600 Yds receiving and 800 yds rushing. Our play design, from the snap count and cadance, to the WRs routes, to the plays called and lack of plays called, are all high school level.

    Keep thinking that this organization has a snowballs chance in hell of ever hiring a credible head coach if they keep Ireland around.

    I think 90% or better of fins fans want Ireland gone at this point. But to say that Ireland is the reason Aponte wants to leave is speculative. Especially in light of the fact that it was reported at least a week ago that Aponte is being offered a job in the league office. Even if she would like to be a GM she doesn't have all the qualifications as far as I know. While it's clear she knows contracts and numbers, I have never heard of her having any skills as it relates to scouting or talent evaluation.

    Then again, neither does that fellow occupying the office now.
