It's been a week since Black Monday, yet no word has come down from Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross regarding the status of GM Jeff Ireland, coach Joe Philbin or his staff. However, it sounds like Ireland may be safe.
"Against all odds, I am hearing Jeff Ireland may stay on as Dolphins GM," tweeted Michael Silver NFL.com.
If this turns out to be the case, Dolphins fans may be up in arms about it. We noted Sunday how his offseason decisions at linebacker backfired. There also is the matter of a disastrous offensive line that gave up a league-high 58 sacks. So, yes, if Ireland keeps his job, it would be against all odds.
