Chad Pennington NOT happy with Mr. Stephen Ross

Chad Pennington during his weekly spot on the Dan LeBatard Show on 790 THE TICKET pulled no punches and went after Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross and GM Jeff Ireleand.


“Sometimes, certain decisions don’t make sense,” Pennington said. “This isn’t college, where you have to get your coaching staff in place so you can recruit. There are plenty of candidates out there and you can certainly have preliminary talks with some of these candidates while the season is going on, especially this late in the season.”

“This just doesn't bode well for the team at all. I think you’re bailing out. Either (fire him) early or late. You don’t do it in the middle. That makes no sense, unless you’re trying to evaluate a potential candidate.”


Chad went on a rant about Jeff Ireland...


“I know Jeff probably doesn’t want to hear that, and I hate to say that, but I can only look at the actions,” Pennington said. “Jeff probably was put in a bad position by Stephen Ross when they went to go talk to Jim Harbaugh, but at some point in time as a man you got to look another man in the eyes and say, ‘I know you’re my boss, but I don’t agree with this and I’m not going through with it.’ And so I think from that point on there was certainly some tension between Jeff Ireland and Tony Sparano, and rightly so, because of the actions that took place.”


And in closing Chad got one last thing off his chest...


“I don’t care if this is your first time being an NFL owner. You treat people a certain way,” Pennington said. “Stephen Ross was always nice to me, we always had great conversations. But when things like this happened like it happened in the offseason, that really frustrates me. Because I’m not a wealthy business owner, I’m not a billionaire, but there are certain ways that you treat people whether you have a dollar or 10 billion dollars, and I just didn’t agree, and I’m being totally honest.”
