Ok, first of all I have way too much time on my hands today. I got hurt at work yesterday and have nothing better to do than sit around in front of my computer writing silly crap. So I apologize to anyone (except Mike) that is offended by any of my gibberish today. With that being said.....Does Dolphin's owner Stephen Ross want the Dolphins to lose? Is Ross on the Suck For Luck bandwagon?
Recently, a Dolphin's source told the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero that "Ross wants a franchise quarterback at the helm in 2012. He is committed to veer away from any attempt that would add a caretaker quarterback as a potential starter. He is also said to be tired of watching the Dolphins field backups disguised as starters."
He also states that "Ross is so focused on getting his team a franchise quarterback that he has told friends, much as losses pain him in the short-term, he's aware they offer long-term gain because they put Miami in better position to pick Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck in the next draft".
If that is true, great. But, Ross should really keep his thoughts and ideas on this touchy subject to himself. Not everyone is on the Suck For Luck bandwagon, and I'm sure you wouldn't find ONE player who is. OK, maybe Brandon Marshall. Then he could blame all of his drops on a rookie.
Thoughts like that could backfire on Ross. What free agent would want to play for a guy who wanted to lose? How many fans would be pissed off if they knew Ross wanted to lose? And it surely wouldn't help his coaching search when the inevitable comes and Tony Sparano (and possibly Jeff Ireland) gets the boot. There would be backlash!
So Stephen, if you are on the Suck For Luck bandwagon, welcome aboard. In fact you can have a 1st class front row seat, but PLEASE keep your thoughts on this matter to yourself! Let the dummies like me rant about it!
