Dolphins owner Stephen Ross sees Super Bowls, plural

The Dolphins haven’t even won a playoff game since 2000, a span that goes far beyond the time which Stephen Ross has owned them.

But Ross was confident Sunday, after beating the Patriots to reach a 6-10 record, that success is on the horizon.

“I told the players that I really believe,” Ross said, via Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post. “For those who stay, we’re going to be winning Super Bowls. If you look at our organization today, you see what we’ve done.

“From every aspect except the playing field, we’re probably the first class organization in the National Football League.”

Yeah, about that. The Dolphins haven’t had a winning record since 2008, Ross’s first year with his name on the letterhead. And they’re in the midst of their latest coaching search and reorganization, after hiring college scouting head Chris Grier to serve as their new General Manager under Mike Tannenbaum.

Ross wouldn’t rule out his interim coach either, saying: “I love Dan Campbell. I think he’s great.” He also said he wanted to make a hire “sooner than later,” noting that plenty of teams were looking for coaches.

  1. The only way NAY member of the Dolphins, or Stephen Ross himself, sees ANY Super Bowls as long as Ross owns the team is to BUY TICKETS!

  2. I said the same thing about my business. Except for the fact nobody buys my product and I don’t make money, I have one the most successful businesses in the world. What a joke!

  3. This babbling imbecile should be in a mental institution.

    He’s completely out of touch with reality.

  4. Hahaha. Senility has taken hold. I kept checking the calendar to see if it says April Fools Day on it! Signed a Dolphin Fan

  5. I love him. With the right GM and coach this team will do great. What more can you ask for in an owner? Gives his coaches and administration every opportunity to succeed and doesn’t interfere.

  6. Maybe your only one more big free agent signing away. How in the hell did Ross ever became a successful business man is beyond me.

  7. “From every aspect EXCEPT THE PLAYING FIELD, we’re probably the first class organization in the National Football League.”

    C’mon, Ross didn’t really say this, did he? If he did, this is funnier than anything I’ve read in the Onion in a long time.

  8. He’s such a sucker.

    He let Ireland hoodwink him for years, then he let Philbin stay two years too long because “I believe in Joe. He’s a wonderful human being”.

    And now he’s letting Tannenbaum pull the wool over his eyes.

    He’d probably be a trillionaire instead of just a billionaire, if he wasn’t so gullible.

  9. And now I understand why Belichick was not determined to win this game. He already had a bye locked up. The Broncos won’t get past the Chiefs or the Steelers (whomever they end up playing) and Ross now feels confident in keeping this team together, which New England, when healthy, has already proven they can dismantle.

    Well done, sir.

    I also realize by saying this, I am sounding just as delusional as Ross, however, after the last two Pats games, I need something to help me sleep better at night.

  10. This is why they will suck for a while. Who wants to work for an owner like Ross? Guy is an absolute embarrassment to a once proud and respected franchise. Ross = loss.

  11. Getting rid of tannenbaum would be a good start. The ’72 Dolphins are a curse to this team! They haven’t done anything since then.
    ——————————————————-
    Actually, they won the Super Bowl again the following year against Minnesota. Eight months before Richard Nixon left office.

    They haven’ done anything since then…….

  12. If Ross wants to see some super bowl rings, the patriots have 4 of them. Plus they make the playoffs and have fans who support the team unlike the dolphins fans who don’t even show up to games

  13. You got the win because belichick let it happen. The patriots weren’t playing for the 1 seed anyway. Anyone who watched that game would tell you the same

  14. The guy reminds me of Mr. Kroger on Seinfeld. Completely clueless, bet the dolphins make yearly contributions to the “Human Fund” and given the eagles, jets, and browns follies, it appears they make them too.

  15. This guy is the worst. Any dolphin fan that is still buying the crap being put out by this team and the select Miami media outlets(one of which is very close with Florio) is as delusional as this guy sounds. If this man, as an owner of a franchise that just imploded in front of the rest of the NFL, and made anyone associated with their name look absolutely incompetent from the top down, still has confidence in his employees should be removed from the position.

    This guy and Chipwood must go to the same analyst.
    ==============================
    Unless Chipwood is Ross…….

  17. What Ross said and the comments here are too funny and yet the Patriots couldn’t beat them today.

  18. “From every aspect except the playing field, we’re probably the first class organization in the National Football League.”

    Which is akin to saying, “Aside from his 0.0 GPA, my child is a model student in every way.”

  19. 42 seasons and counting since the last super bowl win … and then winning a game today they would be better off losing …. sure glad I am not a dophins fan … many hungry years are on the horizon.

    Yeah RIGHT!!!! If that’s the case, then why even start Brady! First, you Pmen fans whine about injuries and now you’re saying they let them win? Which is it? Make up your mind. With fans like you, no wonder every NFL fan hates the Patriots! Better start looking for a witch doctor, otherwise you’ll be one and DONE! Can’t wait to hear what the excuse will be when that happens.

  21. I love how the Dolphins fans think they beat the Pats whonthrew 2 passes to Gronk and 2 to Brandon L . Bill knows what he is doing he is hoping Ross keeps the current staff in place. Why are Dolphins fans and their owners the most delusional in the NFL. I watch the whole game today it looks like the patriots were trying to lose and I am a Dolphins fan all they did was run the ball.

    Forgot about that one. I stand corrected. I live down in South Florida and should have known. But then again, I could care less about the Dolphins and their history since the only thing they can reminisce about is that ’72 team.

  23. No, No, No please tell me he didn’t say this. This is exactly what I was scared of if we managed to beat the Patriots. Mr Ross I have stuck up for you, said you were over the stupid talk. We need players that can tackle and block weeks 1 through 11 not show up week 17
