When asked why he fired Adam Gase, Ross stated, “Adam wants to win and win now. He’s in his fourth year and I think every coach in his fourth year has to win”. It may have seemed like an odd response, and one that Ross should have probably reiterated better, but essentially, it’s because Gase is in win-now mode, with no interest in a rebuilding process. Ross, on the other hand, understands that his team is not just a year away, and he wants the Dolphins to start building with younger players.
Hes going to have to be patient here, especially with the pipeline of busted draft picks Mac is going to give him. The positive, I can see Gase throwing Mac right under the bus with ownership, which may be needed.
