    Default Should Ross make a statement??

    I think he does, there's so much uncertainty, I think he has to let everyone know he either is the coach, or he's gonna be replaced here at the bye..I say that because having a bye with this much uncertainty, cannot be a good thing?..whatta ya'll think, statement or business as usual?

    If Ross decides to keep TS, then no, I dont think Ross needs to say anything. IMO

    The statement will come after the season. It might be inevitable for Sparano to either be fired or step down voluntarily during the year...but to me the statement will be when the entire front office is cleaned out, not just Sparano.

    The more the Dolphins lose, the less Jeff Ireland will be able to escape blame for this.

    The newest thing that cropped up today is...what if Matt Moore would have gotten hurt? Who would have been our emergency QB? I know it's become chic in the NFL nowadays to only have 2 QBs on roster, but does that mean it was justifiable for the Miami Dolphins to have only 2 QBs on roster this year? Know your system. Know your team. We all could see right away that in this system, with this OL, and with the style that our QBs were coached to play, Chad Henne was getting HIT...a lot. We saw that. I'm not the only one that saw that, we all did. I just quantified it. So Chad Henne goes down at the start of that game, what if Matt Moore takes a bad hit? Who goes in? Charles Clay?

    We haven't seen the end of Henne's injuries this season, and I'm just wondering what happens from here on. The 3rd stringer is a practice squad QB that went UDFA. That seems normal enough. But should you be doing that if you're running a spread behind a bad OL, to where your QBs are getting murdered? Chad Henne wasn't the only one that took hits. Matt Moore took hits too. It's just an example of the kind of thing you need to be on top of if you're a GM.

    Two possibilities.

    1. Ireland did whatever he could to set Sparano up to fail.
    2. Negligence.

    I say the latter, but the former has some intriguing possibilities...

    I am sure he can pen something after he lands back in NY, if he isn't already there.

    I've got to think with this bye Steve, and the outcry from the fanbase, he's at least got to say something to settle them and not let the hatred build thru uncertainty?

    Article on NFL.com says Sparano is still safe until after the Jets game.

    The only thing, IMO, that the fans want to hear is Ross saying that TS has been let go. Fans don't want to hear anything else.

    This fan doesn't. This fan wants to hear that Jeff Ireland has been fired and that candidates from the Packers, Steelers, Ravens, and Eagles front offices are scheduled for immediate interviews.

    I'd even accept Carl Peterson as interim GM to serve out the year and conduct the interviews.

    Makes no sense. You give him 2 weeks to fix something that he can't fix. Ross gives him 2 weeks to let this team have his fate hang over their heads. Put the f'er out of his misery. Give this team 2 weeks to prepare for the Jets with the mindset that this is who, whoever the interim coach is, they are playing for and that is who will be there through week 17. You either let him go now or you keep him all season. It makes no sense to let him coach through the bye week and have him be a "week to week" coach.

    I have heard that it may have been a separated shoulder but I don't know for sure.

    I think he has gonna have testing done tomorrow but in his press conference he said he wants to play through it. Say what you want about Henne, but he is one tough/determined kid. I bet he would have went back into the game if they would have let him.

    Either two things are going to happen. They're going to come out with a lot of fire and intensity beating the Jets to save Sparano's job. Then that carries over to a 7-8 wins season. Or they're going to come out flat losing by two or more touchdowns. Then we probably win between 3-4 games.

    I honestly have a gut feeling it'll be the latter... I'm starting to think we are one of the biggest underachievers in the league right now.

    You could see the offense get constricted when Moore was in..I hope the dude comes back and gets a win against the jets..coming back from a broken shoulder to beat the jets?...lol...He might win some folks then and only then... If they even care,Its actually this teams last hope, Henne that is.
