Over the past few days, we have heard some rumblings that the Miami Dolphins could consider parting ways with offensive coordinator Mike Sherman and general manager Jeff Ireland but now it looks like things could be changing.
Much to the dismay of the Dolphins fan base, it appears that owner Stephen Ross may decide to spare Ireland of his job.
From Mike Silver of NFL.com:
Against all odds, I am hearing Jeff Ireland may stay on as Dolphins GM…

With the lack of success that Miami has found under Ireland, it would be easy to find a reason to fire him and start over. Unfortunately, Ross may be too kind for his own good.
If the Dolphins want to get over the hump, they are going to need to start from the top. They won’t be able to do that with Ireland running the show, however.
We will have to see if Ross has a change of heart and ultimately decides to give Ireland the boot, but right now the fans in the “Fire Jeff Ireland” camp don’t look like they will be getting their wish.
