Fisher search leads national pundits to question Fins

Even as Jeff Fisher continues to ponder what team he will coach and what team's owner will be his new boss, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is taking it on the chin from national pundits that obviously don't hold him in high regard.

The latest to take a swipe at Ross is Foxsports.com and FOX-TV NFL insider Jay Glazer, who today held a live chat on the website he works for and was asked his thoughts on Ross.

"I think he is a great businessman but doesn't know what he doens't know when it comes to the NFL," Glazer said. "He has no idea the type of effect many of the things he does has. I wouldn't say he's a meddler and he definitely wants to win but he's done some things behind the scenes that has had many inside the league scratching their heads. Going to interview Jim Harbaugh last year while Sparano was still emplyed was ridiculous."

This comes only one day after Peter King of NBC's Sunday Night Football over America and the entire Earth not to mention the inner Planets, was asked on twitter what is the general perception of the Dolphins organization (Ross/Jeff Ireland) around the league?

"Proceed with caution," King answered.

Glazer and King obviously agree.

Give it a rest-Fisher can take as long as he needs to make what he feels is his best decision--he is in a position do do what he wants. Giving him a deadline???STUPID IDEA. NFL is its own business and can't compare to the real world--especially not when it comes to HC's. The others signing so quickly doesn't impact us--we didn't want them anyway. Mularkey--are you kidding me??? Boils down to where Ross will continue to spend money--if he opens the bank for HC but restricts $$$ for FA's or players that may really help we will continue to be in trouble. If Fisher signs with the Phins, that may be a sign that there is a plan. Remember--GOOD DRAFTING is still the long term answer (no matter the slot-we still have to make good choices and I know we still have too many ?'s about who has the ability to do this). Dinner AND a show, people.........

ESPN's Adam Shefter reported that Fisher is still leaning toward the Dolphins, but has yet to make a decision. Fisher also has had no negotiations with either team. Shefter stated he expects a decision by tomorrow with a deal done by tomorrow evening.

Keep waiting everyone!

Search This,

My greatest issue with Ross and green horn owners like him, is dont buy buy nfl franchises when you dont have a clue about the football side of things. At least have knowledge of who the right people are to surround yourself with before purchasing.

Ross doesnt seem to have much of either. When this happens its the fans that suffer most. Eventually so will that owner's wallet.

That report by Adam Schefter who also says neither team has made an offer to the coach.

CRAIG M......... SHOW CLASS AND SAY SORRY TO (( SEARCH THIS ));;;;''

IRELAND DIDN'T LIKE FISHER AT ALL ..HE'S SMART GUY ,,,,GOOD JOB IRELAND.

TheOtherRick, what do you mean?

Sorry I meant Jay I stand corrected but either way he is still and idiot. Thanks Craig M

Aloco, I'd just like him to get over whatever issue he has. A vandetta, a grudge whatever it is.

I dont want, nor need an apology Aloco but, thanks LOL You will forever be known as the peace maker!

So Tony Sparano will coordinate the J-E-T-S offense.....


.......glad to see Rex Ryan still has a sense of humor........

Flash: Jon Kitna just announced his retirement from the NFL....damn, there goes another one of Ireland's possible acorns.

Rex should guarantee more field goals next year

David Lee off to Bufflao to be their QB coach. RIP Ryan Fitzpatrick!!..

ALOCO,

GO SCREW YOURSELF PEACE LOVING INFIDEL. MAKE WAR NOT LOVE. HAVE YOU SEEN THE PRICE OF LOVE MAKING LATELY? LOL

Mmmmmm Ross Meat

LIFE IS SHORT
LOVE IS GOOD


BUT MUST BE WITH A WOMAN NOT TALLER THAN S FEET AND 13 INCHES .

AND 11 INCHES

#1 Dolphin Fan in Montreal,

Well, everyone has assumed he is contemplating two offers, but this Schefter 'report' says neither team has offred him a contract. So, IF that is accurate, the Dolphins interviewed him, didn't offer him a contract, and have continued all along to interview other candidates. Maybe the ball isn't in Fisher's court like everyone seems to think. Just speculating. After all, Fisher is a millionaire coach, but Ross is a bilionaire businessman.

ALOCO,

DO YOU MAKE LOVE TO WOMEN 11" TALL? ISNT THAT LIKE YOUR SISTER'S BARBIE DOLL?

DID ANYONE at all think that potential STARS would want to come to this place with Jeff Ireland around?

Jeff Ireland IS A SCOUT who was a SCOUT when he worked for KC.. Went from KC to the Cowboys as A SCOUT. Parcells brings THE SCOUT to Miami and with a title of GM.

So hence... We have a ASCOUT occupying the GM's office.

If anyone doesn't understand that, let me know so i can simplify it.

THE SCOUT MUST GO before the STARs will get serious.

OtherRick,
Maybe the report is accurate, but....
Keep in mind virtually EVERY job transaction like this starts with the phrase "no offers have been made", and then the offer is magically created and signed the next day.
Typical. I wouldn't put any real stock in it.

ALOCO,

REAL WOMEN KEEP GETTING MORE AND MORE EXPENSIVE. CAN YOU TELL TODAY'S GOING $RATE FOR BARBIE DOLL PURCHASES?

I don't like the idea of Fisher either but be fair. He can't accept and offer that has'nt been made yet.

NY "G",

Yeah I know...he's a SCOUT

And Cowher's coming

And we're trading up for Luck.

You're not a cult member by chance, that sits around and chants this stuff all day are you? Just wondering....

Boulder, Romeo beat Green Bay (and then Denver), that's why he was retained.

Bowles had to beat the Pats and Jets, and I bet he would have been retained.

Not saying he was awful (I liked some of the things he did).

What it did tell me is exactly what you said, this team doesn't need to be blown up (like I thought mid-Season). They need a HC who can strategize, communicate effectively to Ireland what's missing so he can acquire them (Safety, OLB, #2 WR, #1 TE, RT, and most importantly, QUARTERBACK) and make these guys play above their abilities for an entire Season.

To me, Bowles did as well as Sparano would have done. He didn't add any wrinkles, didn't change much that we were doing all year, didn't adjust any players in the lineup. Pretty much played status quo.

And I saw the same failures as some of our past teams. I don't want our personnel blown up. I want our HC's philosophy blown up, destroyed, and rebuilt for 2012.

So no to Bowles.

SHOULD WE ASK THE JETS TO SPEAK WITH TONY SPARANO ??????

ross went after jim harbaugh last time and no one knew, might be doing same now.

I would hardly say he's narrowed it down to US.
If he did, why isn't he signed yet?

Posted by: SEARCH THIS!!! | January 12, 2012 at 03:35 PM

Ha ha ha, gee I dunno, he did say he's only interested in Coaching two teams. Miami or St. Louis. Seeing how he released this statement from the get go, ah........um.........I'd say he ruled out 30 other teams. Ya know, narrowed it down to two, Us and them.

I'm not sure how to explain it to you or translate it. Oh wait, I'll bet it's the math that's confusing you-AGAIN-LOL.

Allow me:

32 teams.

Fisher instantly rules out 30.

32 - 30 = 2

You get that, huh?


NY "G", I think the majority of fans realize Ireland is a big problem.

He can stay as a talent scout. That's what he is. But, someone needs to be the face of the manegement team with respect & make the calls.

Well said Joe....

ALOCO,

I MAKE $37 A MONTH. I REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN WINING AND DINING A REAL WOMAN WAS SHARING A PINT OF NIGHT TRAIN AND DUMPSTER DIVING LEFTOVERS. WHY HAS TODAY'S WOMAN GOTTEN SO SOPHISTICATED?

This is taking to long. Somethings wrong

DAVID LEE THE DOLPHINS QB COACH WILL BE HEADED TO THE JETS TO RUIN MARK SANCHEZ AS HE DID WITH HENNE ......

ALoco,

You're wrong.....he's going to Buffalo.

I MEANT BUFFALO TO RUIN FITZPATRICK

In RE to Fisher's record, I'm actually impressed he was able to do what he was able to do with the Oilers/Titans.

They were a complete disaster when he took over as interim HC (then retained)...that was the first 2 season. Then he spends another 2 seasons on the move with temp digs in Memphis and the team working out of trailers.

Finally, the dust settles and voila...playoffs, superbowl...things going really well for about 5 years. Then, wham...front office cuts or trades a number of key players from the roster (Eddie George, Derrick Mason, Kevin Carter, Samari Rolle, Jevon Kearse) and leaves Fisher with absolutely nothing to work with.

But hey, it's all good....the owner turns around the following year and trades McNair and drafts V Young....amazingly, Fisher was able to get a V Young led team to the playoffs twice....well, once....he benched Young in favor of Collins and Collins got them to the playoffs one of those years.

ALOCO,

I HAVENT HAD A REAL WOMAN SINCE YOU OFFERED MY LAST HONEY A FRESH GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH OVER MY DUMPSTER DIVING LEFTOVERS.

WHY ALOCO, WHY!


NY "G",

Yeah I know...he's a SCOUT

And Cowher's coming

And we're trading up for Luck.

You're not a cult member by chance, that sits around and chants this stuff all day are you? Just wondering....

Posted by: Craig M | January 12, 2012 at 04:16 PM

Um.. Was I addressing you CM?

Well, now I need to.

Yeah I know...he's a SCOUT.
NYG > Perhaps others don't know that.

And Cowher's coming
NYG > IS he? I said he IS and we don't have a HC yet so don't count that out (yet).

And we're trading up for Luck.
NYG > Are you counting that out already? I'm not. I stand by what I said.

Oh.. BTW.. I also said that Peterson will be replacing and calling the shots and will WHACK Ireland when told to. Well, Peterson IS HERE. Just waiting for the Whack job. lol


You're not a cult member by chance, that sits around and chants this stuff all day are you?
NYG > I dont know what you mean by "all day". I just posted my second post today. Also, please clearify what you deem a "cult" if you choose to.

wolfman

way to steal andy NJ thunder!! He is a Fischer supporter and pointed out those very players and facts yesterdays post!

...and that is YEARS after Collins was a washed up alcoholic...

Odin, you said he narrowed it down to "US". By us, did you mean Miami or Miami & the Rams? Because to me, your post read, he narrowed it down to Miami.

Which is why I asked why hasn't he signed.

Again, I don't know why you feel the need to try to be funny or try to mock what everyone says but at least you don't stoop to the level on accusing me of being someone else.

For that, I thank you!

NY "G',

Good stuff....LOL. At least you've got a sense of humour.....good man!

THANKS CRAIG .....

adam schefter was just on with sid rosenberg said fisher likes ireland and respects him the dolphins hold a slight edge fisher has started to put a coaching staff together and no financial offers have been made by either team he wants all details and ducks in a row before talking contract my opinion all along is that he will join the dolphins at some point he is well worth the wait so chill we will land the fish soon dolfans

...and a career QB rating of 73.8.

24-48hours jeff fisher new coach of the miami dolphins

finfan - didn't mean to steal anyones thunder. I didn't see those yesterday.

finfan - also, while I certainly didn't mean to steal anyone's thunder....maybe it just needed to be put back out there. All anyone seems to want to do is look at the black and white. Makes sense....it's easy....most people like easy.

wolfman

youre a dikk biter.

Craig M,

Thanks..We have to have a little fun around here once in a while. lol It helps while we kill time waiting for Armandos next post.

YOU GUYS ARE WORSE THAT A GROUP OF GIRLS.. RECYCLE SAME BULLS%^T

That reminds me...where in the world is Rocko?


Every single religion on the face of the Earth. They're all a bunch of death cults based on superstition and fear.

Posted by: Well, You Asked | January 12, 2012 at 04:27 PM

Well, You Asked,

Umm.. Thank you for that ... I think.

wolfman

You are not a business man who make desicions you are an assistant manager at starbucks. You are a barista hahaahaha

CTPHINS........ OUR BLOGGERS ARE UNIQE IN EVERY WAY;;\\

1- THEY DON'T HAVE A JOB.
2-THEY LVE IN TRAILERS AND STUDIOS .
3-THEY ONLY EAT LEFTOVER .
4- THAY HAVE NO MONEY TO GO TO THE DOLPHINS GAMES .
5-THEIR EDUCATION IS A LOUSY FL SYSTEM,

Speak of the devil...

I just overhead on ESPN the Stash will make his announcement in 24 hours. Isn't that what they said on Monday!

Friday the 13th... Jeff is going to wait until the 13th to honor Dan Marino's #13 which he hopes will resolve the jinx.

bryan in ohio, if rumors are true that he hasn't been offered a job, isn't it a bit premature to be putting a staff together?

This whole process just seems bizare!

Rocko...thanks for the laugh.

Again, I don't know why you feel the need to try to be funny or try to mock what everyone says but at least you don't stoop to the level on accusing me of being someone else.
For that, I thank you!

Posted by: SEARCH THIS!!! | January 12, 2012 at 04:26 PM

Wow! A civil response. I like that. Now I can be civil in return :)

Yes I did mean Us and them. Now that we're being civil, I won't have to make any sarcastic comments like, Duh, it should be obvious, etc, etc.

Instead I'll say: Sorry, my bad, I should've been more clear.

For the civil reply, I THANK YOU!
