The Dolphins went through a heap of adversity this season, but seemed to have gotten things together as they marched towards the playoffs.
Then the Dolphins collapsed during the final three weeks of the season. Now a group that seemed to have survived the storm could be in store for an even bigger storm.
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald changes of “some significance” are coming for the Dolphins.
You should know Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said he’s going to “look at everything” in evaluating his team. Two sources told me Sunday evening changes of some significance are coming, without specifying what changes exactly that would entail.
That could involve general manager Jeff Ireland. That almost definitely will include assistant coaches. It may even mean coach Joe Philbin will be out — although that seems the least likely scenario. A two-game end of season collapse that keeps a team from making the playoffs will do things like that.
And the Dolphins aren’t just out of the postseason but they just played their fifth consecutive non-winning season.
