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."
