Post It's on Stephen Ross. All of it.
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.

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. For the first time since he's owned the Dolphins, Ross actually owns the team of people that will take the Dolphins to heights or keep them at their current level of mediocrity and NFL irrelevance.

It is all on him.

And Ross is apparently quite comfortable with that because he obviously believes he's got the right people on the job. As I write in my column in The Herald today, Ross had plenty of chances to get rid of Jeff Ireland after 2011 when he jettisoned Sparano.

He didn't.

And at least one candidate for the general manager vacancy asked Ross to remake the team as a condition of being hired over the weekend. And Ross remained oddly loyal to his people, most notably Joe Philbin.

Its the way it has to be, think about the Jets 2013... Destined for a 5 win season if lucky, Rex Ryan was on the hot seat before the season started. A big mess of an organization...

They won 8 games total, and the 8th was like the Super Bowl, they were popping bottles in the Dolphins visitor locker room as the owner announced Rex was being extended for such a great year...

So now Joe sees this as an opportunity to drive moral to an all time low, we should be looking forward to a 3 - 5 win season by Aug, then he has a chance to redeem himself with an 8 win season
