GM Jeff Ireland on the Hot Seat Entering 2012

The Miami Herald starts the first week of the NFL season letting Dolphins fans know that GM Jeff Ireland may not be long for the job of GM if the Fins have another down season.

The Dolphins must emerge from 2012 knowing exactly what they have in Ryan Tannehill, but also critical is this: Owner Stephen Ross must decide whether Jeff Ireland is the right man long-term for the franchise’s most important position, aside from quarterback. Ross made clear he expects a winning team in 2012, though some of Ireland’s moves suggest he’s far more concerned with 2013 than 2012. A friend of Ross believes Ireland will be in serious trouble if the Dolphins bomb. He insists Ross does not have “blind faith” in his general manager. Another close business associate of Ross said Ireland probably would not survive a 5-11 season but cautioned there could be scenarios in which the Dolphins have a losing record but Ross still keeps Ireland.
