The 2010 Season Ends...What's Next?
Coach Sparano On the Hot Seat
This was supposed to be the year that the Miami Dolphins rose to prominence and established itself as a powerhouse in the AFC. So it is not hard to understand why the fans of the team are disappointed to the extreme. After all we have been patiently waiting, and waiting and waiting for a winner. We got behind this regime and their choices and their moves. Season ticket sales were up, support high and the team was in the end just...disappointing. This was going to be the year Chad Henne had as breakout season and establish himslef firmly as the starter for our new and now mighty playoff team. But it didn't happen that way. He too was jist well, disppointing. The problem is its hard to describe exactly what happened. On paper the talent seems to be better than the 7-9 record the Dolphins finished with. The coaching? Yeah that should be better too. What is it? What is ailing this football team?
There is little doubt there will be sweeping changes this year. At the very least the offensive coaches will be replaced and the Dolphins will be looking to add speed and talent on the offensive side of the ball. But the biggest question is will Tony Sparano still be the Head Coach. There are big and sexy names available out there like John Gruden and Bill Cowher so it will be diificult for Steven Ross to lay off of those proven names when the Fins house is in such disarray.
One thing for sure is this. If there aren't big and dramatic changes the team will lose its season ticket support, and the fan support will waiver. And some people will say its bad fans. I disagree. The fans have stood by this team through the thick and thin. We are excellent fans and we want what every fan wants. We want our team to win. Is that too much to ask?
