Either way, Ryan just did the Dolphins a great service. Firing Greg Roman leaves the promising Tyrod Taylor in Ryan's incapable hands. Roman knew how to bring along talented but fundamentally sloppy quarterbacks (Kapernick). He knew how to dink and dunk his way to 36 minutes of possession and starve the other team of the football. He knew how to put up 20 some odd points, which was about what the Bills used to need.
What he didn't know how to do was score enough to protect the other Ryan's sad defense. So he is gone- after putting up almost 400 yards last game. He takes the fall, and the DC who gave up 37 and nearly 500 yards to a mid-level offense remains.
The Dolphins need 4-2 in division to make the playoffs. We need a divisional weak link to bolster our record. Today Rex Ryan did his part for the cause.
