Miami owner Stephen M. Ross is a tremendous businessman. As a matter of fact, the University of Michigan Business school is named after him. However, his success in the board room has failed to translate into success on the gridiron. In the same way as Washington’s Danny Boy Snyder the Dolphins boss just keeps digging a bigger hole. His latest hair-brained scheme was naming Brian Flores as coach and rebuilding architect. So far Miami is on pace to reverse their 1972 Pro Football betting achievement of an undefeated season. Flores is burning it all down rapidly.
