In the wake of the Richie Incognito scandal, the Miami Dolphins are expected to mix things up at the end of the season if not sooner. Two of the men who could be held responsible for the lack of leadership and structure in the locker room are head coach Joe Philbin and general manager Jeff Ireland, who fans have been hoping would be outed regardless.
According to NFL.com’s Mike Silver, neither Philbin nor Ireland “are expected to survive this.”
Philbin has denied knowing the extent of the Richie Incognito – Jonathan Martin situation, despite reports stating otherwise. If he was a true leader of the team, he would have nipped this in the bud and made sure it never got to this level.
As for Ireland, he has continuously built losing teams that have underachieved and his latest spending spree didn’t go as planned.
It’s time for the Dolphins to hold people accountable, and that looks like it will begin with the men upstairs.
