    Interesting-Is Ross going to hire a GM and force him to keep Philbin?

    His gambles and total all in philosophy is what has lead to this team having a totaly bare cupboard. He simply disregarded the value of mid to late round picks killing depth and making idzik clean up a real mess. The most bewildering thing about the Rex/Tanny era is that it was based on win now and yet they went out and got a rookie qb and put all their money on him.

    It's been reported that Philbin's job is safe for now.

    I think he might ask the new GM to keep Philbin for 1 more year then fire him if Miami doesn't improve

    agreed, After 2 weeks of candidates being picked over and likely 3 - 4 weeks when a new gm can be put in place, philbin should stay. He has only been there two years. And the team is heading in the right direction.

    Right direction???

    - Philbin ran a dysfunctional locker room which brought about the Incognito situation

    - They had an absolutely worthless 2013 draft

    - They were 8-6 and had the playoffs in their control and got whipped the final two games
    of the season

    - They need to find a GM and force a coach on him and need to find an OC

    Other than that, they look good.

    They got whipped by 2 non-playoff teams to boot. I mean, 8-6 and lose to the Broncos and Patriots, I could understand and forgive. They lost to the Bills and Jets. Non-playoff divisional teams. Philbin just does not seem like a good football coach to me. His demeanor just does not relate to today's players in my opinion.

    Tom Gamble is the Fins #1 choice.

    I was hoping the we were going to hire him. I remember when it was reported that Gamble was a sure thing. So much for that. This would be a good hire by the Fins, which would piss me off.

    Well it's customary for a new GM to hire the HC he wants.

    Amirite ?

    We'll see. And we have no idea if it will be a good hire either.

    If the reports are true that Ross wanted Ireland to Report to Dawn Aponte, would Gamble even want the position. It seems Ross would want Gamble for his scouting abilities and Aponte overseeing Gamble. Hopefully thats the case so any respected GM candidate would steer clear of Miami.

    The MIA and TB situations show the hypocrisy of the media. Last year we kept our coach and found a GM
    and everyone screamed how dysfunctional the Jets are. I'm not hearing the same outrage with these two
    teams

    You're right and the reason is twofold: New York market (nobody cares about Florida) and the JETS are without a doubt the media's whipping boy.

    What a dysfunctional "circus" MIA is:

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/01/0...-of-miami.html

    People are backstabbing one another to move up the ladder. Do they
    really think they are going to get a good GM???

    Aside from the worthless draft in 2013, those other points could be said about another team we all follow.

    That would be great! I dont want them getting Tom Gamble. I would be suprised if he left Philly if he didnt have full control as the GM.

    Well, true. But the difference is in the preseason this was supposed to be MIA's coming out year.
