I'm not trying to sound doom-and-gloomish here, but Ross has now bought all the groceries. Let's not forget that Carl Peterson helped him through the past few years.

It's on Stephen Ross. All of it.
He hired this coach. He has hired this general manager. He has hired the Dolphins new President and CEO. All that stuff about inheriting people like Bill Parcells and Tony Sparano is out the window now.
