I instantly thought that as well- from all the quotes, it almost sounded like Gase wanted to leave. If we're reading between the lines, Ross tried to talk to him last week, Gase said, "Nope, I'm busy", then Ross said this week that Gase needs to give up control of the roster to keep his job (AKA, they were firing Tannehill). Again, Gase said nope and forced Ross's hand. Honestly, that's pretty gangster and it makes me like Gase a heck of a lot more. At least he stuck to his beliefs. I have a feeling that looking back, all the *****ing and complaining the past 6 weeks about RT having no help, no protection was taking stabs at the front office for not bringing in better/younger linemen.
