Dolphins owner Stephen Ross hasn’t said anything since his team ended its season by failing to make it to the playoffs yet again. Come Thursday, Ross could be saying plenty. According to the Associated Press, Ross will resume discussions Thursday regarding potential changes to his team. Regarded to be in the gravest of danger are offensive coordinator Mike Sherman and G.M. Jeff Ireland. Coach Joe Philbin likely will be back for a third season, but that’s currently not a certainty, per the report. The team could have advanced to the playoffs for the first time in five years by beating the Jets on Sunday. But the Dolphins lost at home to win the season, with an outing so ugly that Ross reportedly Ross “became so upset he turned away at one point because he could no longer watch.” Sherman becomes the obvious fall guy on the coaching staff, given the performance of the offense. But with Philbin earning the job based on his performance as an offensive coordinator, there’s a chance the pink slips will flow one level higher.
