Ross wants 'aggressive, creative offense' in '11

If you thought Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was done meddling with the Dolphins on-field product after his failed chase of Jim Harbaugh resulted in a complete public-relations nightmare, well, you're wrong.

Ross told the team-run website TheFinsiders.com that he'd like to see some changes on the offensive end in 2011.

"I've told Tony that to me, I want an aggressive, creative [offense] not playing just to keep it close, where people really are a little more unpredictable," Ross said, via the the Miami Herald.

Translated in the language of an owner who wants to market his football team to the fans of Miami, that basically means "something people will pay to watch."

Which is an alright notion -- teams need offense in order to succeed to a degree. It's just that Ross is clearly trying to hint that he'd love a sexy, headline-generating offense more than anything. You know, like something Chip Kelly runs.

"Our players are training in that weather," Ross said. "Let's take advantage of it. Let's go with a hurry-up offense. Let's wear them down. You know? We've never done that. You know? This isn't the north, where you just want to take it 4 yards and a cloud of dust."

Ross also mentioned a "different brand" one that's "going downfield" -- which, again, is to say he wants a lot of points scored. The problem with that, of course, is that they need a quarterback.

Wait, scratch that -- maybe the bigger problem is that they'll probably be squarely in the "Cam Newton Zone" when the NFL Draft roles around.

Maybe you could get Peyton Manning to take his Talents to South Beach too. Note to owner: No QB= No O!!! Get a QB before you do anything else. The teams that are sucessful have a QB: look around at who is left: Ryan, Cutler, Rodgers, Hasslebeck (winding down good career) Flacco, Big Ben, Brady, The Dirty Sanchez (team carrying this guy, jury is still out). then look at who WAS there: Manning, Cassel, Brees, Vick. Clearly without a QB you are STUCK, look at the Skins, No QB for years and nothing is heard from them. Detroit: same thing. The Key is the QB PERIOD.I would draft 2 every year until I found THE GUY so quit drafting lineman until you have somebody for him to block for. Seriously, what good are any other postion players when you have no QB? Of course you need them because you can win alone but the QB IS the key. The ONLY other example to win is with a SUPER D and Strong running game but you are more likely to win with a great QB, so keep looking.

He is the South Beach version of Dan Snyder. It's obvious he doesn't realize his competition is in the AFC East not the Miami Heat. Once the NBA season starts in November and the Dolphins are not playing well, he has lost his fan base. Well,if he was willing to open his wallet for Jim Harbaugh, he had better damn well better open it up to get some players for his "aggressive" offensive style.

What ever we do please dont go after cam newton ! So he has an impressive college record of being the guy to run the ball but hey guess what , the nfl is alot faster then him , anyone remember Culpepper? Here is my advice Mr. Ross trade for Kolb , if at all possible hes young, he has NFL experience , he has a strong downfield arm, and has played in the kind of offense you are looking to develope . Hire Brad Childress as our offensive coridnator and trade for Kolb , Kolb already knows that offense , its win win . But hey  who am i just another 25 plus year fan of the Miami Dolphins who is sick of dumb decisions like Cam Newton will be if we draft him
