YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS: In Boston, Greg Bedard noted to a recent report citing a friend of Ross' as saying that GM Jeff Ireland “could be in serious trouble if the team really bottoms out.” Bedard asked, “Is Ross completely insane?" Ross "decides that Ireland is worth keeping on after Tony Sparano fizzles out as coach." Ireland is then "allowed to pick the new coach, Joe Philbin, who then hand-selects a quarterback in Ryan Tannehill, who successfully ran the scheme of offensive coordinator Mike Sherman in college." Then after one season Ross "might fire Ireland?" Bedard: "Might as well chalk up the Dolphins as being terrible for another four years” (BOSTON GLOBE, 9/16).
