    Sparano: Dolphins will have run-first offense 'because that's my nature'

    Tony Sparano says his ground-and-pound approach is here to stay.

    Despite owner Steve Ross' request for a more explosive offense, and the front office's admission that the team must add more speed, its coach said the Dolphins will remain a run-first offense under his watch.

    "We're going to continue to run the football because that's my nature. It might not be popular with everybody, but that's what I like to do. There are some teams in this league that got very far being able to do it," Sparano said at the NFL's owners meetings.

    "We're going to continue to run the football. It might look a little different the way we go about doing it. When it comes time for us to open some things up [with the passing game] we're going to be able to do it. We're going to be a little bit more vertical."

    No. I think what Sparano meant to say was:

    "Dolphins will have a run-first offense because "I have no imagination, am boring and content with running on 3rd and long in the 4th quarter when down by 21 points""

    At least us fans will be well rested...

    A little bit more vertical?

    does he mean more than 1 deep pass a game like last year?

    how about at least one deep ball a series buddy!

    Yeah Tony great. The owner needs to put azzes in the seats with some excitement, asks for a more explosive offense and you're essentially telling him based on your impressive accomplishments that he should eff-off. Sorry but 1 home win doesn't earn the capital that's required for you to safely hunker down once the sh*tstorm hits.

    Ironically i had a boss named morono for real..
    he would just do his own thing
    not effectively using the strengths and weakness of his people
    had his own favorites who got away with whatever they wanted
    and naturally his ship sank and production went down
    and finally somebody new was brought in to clean up his mess..
    unfortunatly we are still cleaning up mr. moronos mess..
