Dave's two cents

A couple of random thoughts:

1. The times simulator I posted a link to suggests that the chances of the fins making the playoffs is <1%. While it's still mathematically possible, the season is over.

The question, then, is who do you want as the next head coach. Post below. I'm curious to see what peeps think.

2. I had a feeling (and I think posted something) that the patriots would be damn good this year. And weren't going to take overturned suspension lightly. Now at 10-0, put me on the list of people that think the patriots will go 18-0. And once again be flirting with perfection. Only this time it seems like that extra motivation will prob'ly get them there.

3. I recently read Steve Ross's bio on Wikipedia. Let's just say it was interesting. He's not quite self made (not that he ever said he was), and got some connections and money from the family. And while he did graduate high school in Miami, his family moved there during high school, and he moved away just after. Of course, since he was born in 1940, there were no dolphins in Miami while he lived in the town.

So other than a couple of years as a teen, he really has no personal connection to the town or the team.

Just an observation, really. But it underscores a point I've made that he is happy to own A team, and doesn't much care about it, the city, and whatever.

Jimmy Johnson as GM. Let him pick the coaching staff.

I started to go on a rant about #1, so I saved it for another post!

Dennis Green "they are who we thought they were"! If Dan Campbell starts Matt Moore Sunday against the Jets, he will be our head coach next season; if he does not bench Tannehill, then someone else will be our head coach next season.

Jim Schwartz. The official hire will be made after interviewing Hue Jackson, but the deal was likely made when he spoke with the team as a "consultant". He was offered the job, but didn't want to start mid season. After that, the interim search stopped and we got Campbell.
