Poll results: Jeff Ireland on hottest seat


The Miami Dolphins have a lot of tough decisions to make following their fifth consecutive non-winning season. Miami finished 8-8, missed the playoffs and had an epic collapse after losing to the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets to end the season.

Miami owner Stephen Ross is going to let the sting of losing fade before making any quick decisions. But Ross is expected to make some changes. The only question is how many?

But ESPN.com’s Dolphins page open the floor to Miami fans to play the part of Stephen Ross. According to our SportsNation poll, Dolphins fans voted general manager Jeff Ireland deserves to be the first person to go with more than 40 percent of the votes.

Miami offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was a close second behind Ireland. The Dolphins were 27th in total offense this year and 27th in scoring. Miami offensive line coach Jim Turner and head coach Joe Philbin were a distant third and fourth, respectively.
