    Do we really want to go the "hottest college coach" route again? Wasn't O-Saban-bin-Lyin' enough? I would rather keep Jeff & Tony, & get a new OC. We need to find the next Sean Payton or Mike Tomlin. They weren't exactly household names you know.

    i highly doubt someone within the organization is going to keep giving info to someone who always spills the beans on some fan forum. why would they risk their job for that?

I for one living 1800 miles away am thankful for any spec of info we can get on the situation at this time. Especially something that doesn't come from the major new source BSPN.
    That's your choice. I don't trust anything that doesn't come from "reliable" sources. Just because they work for the Dolphins doesn't make them reliable.


    It takes discipline to not formulate opinions about something WITHOUT KNOWING ALL THE FACTS.

    Just imagine how many people work in the organization, gotta be atleast a couple hundred maybe more. There is no way you can pin down who is letting out information, especially speculative information where most people are just guessing from small bits of info they have heard through the grape vine. Case in point look how many different stories are out there right now regarding Sparano/Cower/Harbaugh. Each one may/probably has it's own source, yet we don't hear how the Fins have fired 20 people because they leaking inside info. In today's age of technology/email/texting/twitter its just to hard to keep secrets.
    When I die I want to hire the Miami Dolphin's to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time.

    Hope this is true! This is Ross' first major decision as a Dolphins owner. If he wants his place in franchise history, he needs to put his mouth where his money is and make the right call here. The pressure must be intense but I'm sure he's faced tough decisions before and you don't become a billionaire by making bad ones.

    you really think theres a couple hundred people that are in on what ross is thinking?

    these "sources" have supplied about 30 different scenarios in the past week, eventually somebody has to get it right.

    It's not about trust. It's about taking all of the information that is out there and formulating an opinion on it. My take through all of the rumors out there is Ross is definitely trying to upgrade the HC position. He isn't however going to fire Sparano without having his replacement lined up. If he finds the replacement he wants that will work with Ireland and Nolan (who I think he wants to keep) than Sparano is gone. However, if he cant find the replacement he will keep Sparano and allow him to find a new OC and try to solve the QB problem this season. I don't like the second option but it's better than firing Sparano and not getting the man you want thus having to hire a new head coach that the owner of the team doesn't really want.
