STEPHEN ROSS DEFENDS HIS DECISIONS AS OWNER OF THE MIAMI DOLPHINS
Mon, 09 Apr 2012 01:27 PM EDT

When a couple dozen protesters showed up outside of the Miami Dolphins complex last week, team proprietor Stephen Ross took notice. Odds

So he called 2 of them, asking what the team could perform better.

“We all have one thing in common,” Ross declared. “We all want to see a winning football team.”

And while talking at the NFL owners meetings, Ross stated that he thinks the Dolphins are improving, even after trying in vain to land quarterback Peyton Manning prior this offseason, together with past coaching candidates such as Jim Harbaugh and Jeff Fisher, who both spurned Miami too. Scores

Those have been the 3 highest-profile known pursuits Ross has made since taking over the Dolphins, and he announced he’s not deterred by going 0 for 3.

“I’ll do it over and over,” Ross expounded. “I’m going to be bold. You know what — you don’t lose for trying. And if I can find the right guy, I am going to be bold in getting him. I cannot stress about losing. Because nothing risked is nothing gained.”

Ross made a big change late last season, firing Tony Sparano and ultimately bringing in previous Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin to take over. Ross raved about Philbin saying he’s already “better than I thought.”

The Miami Dolphins made small secret regarding their interest in Manning, the 4-time NFL MVP who was cut loose by the Indianapolis Colts and became the highest-profile free agent on the market this offseason.

With Manning gone, the Dolphins also conversed with Alex Smith, then wound up signing David Garrard, who will possibly be Matt Moore’s backup entering the season. The Dolphins won 6 of Moore’s final 9 starts last season, after beginning the year 0-7.

“I’m extraordinarily pumped up about Matt Moore,” Ross recounted.

“People, we got so many people who actually liked what Matt Moore did last year. I think as he got more knowledge, the team got better.

That’s a good place to start with. And if we can keep going with that, that’d be great. There are lots of good personnel on that team.”

One big name that became obtainable after Manning chose Denver was Tim Tebow, who was eventually traded to the New York Jets. Ross related Miami wasn’t in any debate to land Tebow.

“In speaking to the coach, he didn’t really fit our method. You’re not going to bring someone in solely to sell seats,” Ross asserted.

“Therefore, we kind of discharged that early on because the coach has an idea where he wants to take this team and how it may perform and get players who can really fit in that system. And Tim Tebow didn’t fit in that system.”

Ross as well defended embattled CEO Jeff Ireland, who in turn spoke highly of Moore.

“I don’t have any 2nd thoughts on making an attempt to address the quarterback position,” Ireland declared. “I’ve made it very clear that the quarterback position needs to play better for us to have the final victory…. A lot is to be said regarding Matt Moore and what he managed to achieve last year.”
