    Referring back to a 2013 article, "Names, people to keep in mind in coming days"

    Salguero is highlighting two of his points, no. 6 refers to watching for Tannenbaum, and he's reminding people to keep their eyes on no.1 - Mangini.

    Here's the cut-down version:

    "Most of what goes on around a football team happens behind the scenes. Practices are closed. The locker room is closed except for a few minutes a day. Meetings are private. The draft room is off limits. And, of course, the hiring, firing or retaining of coaches and personnel people is way, way out of bounds... But the curtain sometimes has little peepholes and sometimes names get out. And sometimes we learn that what we see in public is only a small fraction of what happened and was considered behind the curtain.
    So allow me to share with you names of people that have to be swirling in Stephen Ross's head now that he's going to "look at everything," as he said about evaluating the Dolphins future direction:


    1. Eric Mangini: Ross wanted to hire Mangini prior to the 2011 season but changed course when Jeff Ireland and Tony Sparano balked at the idea. Ross loves Mangini, currently a Senior Offensive Consultant for the San Francisco 49ers, for reasons I am not clear on. Mangini obviously has experience as a head coach as well as defensive coordinator but Ross would not limit the consideration of Mangini to a coaching job. Mangini wanted to drive his career toward the front office and so if Ross fires Jeff Ireland, this is a possible GM replacement. Indeed, even if Ross retains Ireland, Mangini might be brought in to oversee both the coach and general manager. Ireland is no longer in the position of strength he enjoyed in 2011 so he'd be unable to dissuade Ross this time."

    2. Brian Gaine
    3. Aponte
    4. Scott Pioli
    5. Peterson


    6. Mike Tannenbaum: Another person with New York Jets connections. What do you expect from an owner that lives in New York and whose group of advisors include former Jets employees? If Ross doesn't want to promote Aponte to GM she might bolt to the league office if that opportunity pans out. Tannebaum, the former Jets GM, would be a capologist or football executive answer in Miami. This would particularly be the case if Ireland is fired and Mangini comes to town. Tannenbaum and Mangini were a team with the Jets from 2006-2008 until Tannenbaum whacked him after the 2008 season. (That's the NFL, folks).

    If you'll notice there are a lot of New York Jets connections here. It probably makes Dolphins fans queasy because it's the Jets and, after all, their Super Bowl drought is longer than Miami's so what makes those folks so smart?


    But here's the thing: Ross has multiple Jets people around him now.


    L. Jay Cross is the President of Related Hudson Yards and is leading the Related Companies' project on the west side of New York City. Ross is founder and chairman of Related. Cross was president of the New York Jets from 2000-2008.


    Matt Higgins was the New York Jets' executive vice president Business Operations from 2004 through early January 2012. He left the team to co-found RSE Ventures, a tech company charged with getting fans closer to sports and entertainment events. The co-founder and chairman of RSE? Stephen Ross.
    Higgins was a valued advisor to Jets owner Woody Johnson during his time with the Jets. When Ross came out of the Dolphins locker room on Sunday he was accompanied by, you guessed it, Matt Higgins."

    Edit: Let me rephrase.....WE need Ross to sell this team!

    Me too. At least Parcels took us from 1-15 to 11-5 in 1 year.

    I just meant that I preferred the Cowboys stench over the Jets stench.

    At this point he's just trawling for page clicks by preying on the fears of the fanbase. Nothing that has happened and could happen this off-season that's in the realistic realm of possibility is going to have that much of an effect over the course of this team. We're still the same 8-8 team and no decisions made right now are going to change anything.

    I do believe Mangini will eventually find his way onto this team, whether it be as head coach, defensive coordinator or GM.

    Bad as this sounds, I'd take Mangini as DC over Coyle...

    I second that. He's a pretty good 3-4 defensive guy and his Patriots defenses were elite under his tutelage.

    That's one organization we should try to pattern-success wise or Steelers, they seem to be in a SB every 5-6 years, can't be to bad of a sports life for those fans.

    sooner than immediately.

    We are doomed, I really may do the unthinkable.....leave the team as long as he is the owner.

    Correction, CHAD PENNINGTON took us from 1-15 to 11-5. Unless he falls from the sky into Fatass's lap, Parcells was willing to go into the 2008 season with Chad Henne & Josh McCown as our QB's (which might of actually been a better thing in the long run, as Parcells & Co, including the Smug One would have all been wiped out by 2011).
