Call me crazy, but there are at least three ways to ruin an organization. Surely, Stephen Ross has been a part of two different ways, a football czar with Bill Parcells and a powerful GM (Jeff Ireland) who had unquestioned authority.
Not since 2007, have the Miami Dolphins reverted back to their old ways as in Randy Mueller and Cam Cameron. At the introductory press conference both insisted they would work as a team. On day one of the draft, both insisted that their plan all along was to draft rather raw Ted Ginn early in round 1 and then their quarterback John Beck in round 2. It seemed that the plan was in fact Cameron's with Randy Mueller's blessing and then owner Wayne Huizenga that wanted a guy with a rather powerful and rather sophisticated offense. Problem was, Huizenga had to pay those coaches that Cameron inherited to stay around.
As the Dolphins announced their selection of Dennis Hickey for GM, one thing crossed my mind. This move although, seemingly botched from the start, seemed to get more weird by the minute as various media types from NFL network, ESPN, and Miami newspapers could smell the stench from more than a mile away.
However, this move is not about 2014. If Hickey manages to work in a synergesic relationship with head coach Joe Philbin and get the Dolphins into the playoffs then Stephen Ross stumbled onto the right guy for the Dolphins.no comments
