07:16 AM ET 11.12 | A shakeup will come, and likely uncomfortably, in Miami. [Dolphins owner Stephen Ross] fully expects to make "significant" changes within the organization following the NFL investigation and season, according to a source. But ... Ross has made no final decision on the future of coach Joe Philbin or general manager Jeff Ireland, the source said. Furthermore, the source said, if Ross is pressured to dismiss one or the other, barring incriminating details in the NFL report that forces his hand otherwise, Ross is more likely to keep Philbin than Ireland. Ross, I am told, is fond of and respects the job both Philbin and Ireland have been doing. Philbin is the owner's first signature hire since taking full control of the Dolphins in 2009. Ross also reportedly gave Ireland a one-year contract extension before the start of the 2013 season.

If Ross thinks retaining Ireland is going to solve any of the team's problems, he's in a for a rude awakening.

The 2 missing offensive linemen missing were the reason they lost last night. It was especially evident on the safety. You hurt the team boys.

I didn't know he was usually hit that much. Most of the ressure seemed to come staight up the middle.

The Dolphins OL stunk when they had both those guys. So whatever they were doing wasn't working before either.

Really?? Why?? What have they done to earn that?

Ross will meet personally with Martin. He is very noncommittal about meeting with Incognito. Ritchie, you're toast.

Fire head coach, GM, and start over.

The Dolphins DESERVE their misery, they are horrible!!! Getting paid all this money to horse around and dig at each other. This would never happen under a Don Shula team or under the Robbie families ownership and likely not with Zach Thomas on the team. Fans deserve better return for those tickets and parking prices.

Any 'changes' that don't involve completely turning over the coaching staff AND front office will NOT be enough!

Unfortunately, I don't think anyone is going to care about what the other team is doing to the Dolphin O-line.
