Miami morning take: Firings upcoming?

November, 13, 2013
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Wednesday from around the web:
  • Patrick Rishe of Forbes magazine says the Dolphins must fire general manager Jeff Ireland and head coach Joe Philbin.
Morning take: You know the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin story is big when Forbes Magazine, which focuses on finances, is writing about sports firings. This controversy has captured a nation and has many layers.
  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel reports the Dolphins played Dion Jordan for just nine snaps in a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Morning take: The misuse of Jordan continues to be a year-long mystery. Either Jordan isn’t doing much in practice or the Dolphins aren’t sure how to use his talent.
  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post says the Dolphins didn’t lose to the Buccaneers due to distractions.
Morning take: Many Dolphins say they were simply outplayed on Monday. But you have to assume the distractions impacted their preparation and possibly their focus.
Morning take: Not only have the Dolphins underachieved, but they have become a national punch line with the Incognito-Martin scandal. Miami needs to clean up its act.
