http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-...ons-unanswered"Ignorance is not an excuse" were the words Goodell used when describing why those involved in the Saints bounty scandal would not avoid punishment.
You've been on a roll lately.
Dan Henning's ****ty offense the following seasons is not Sparano's fault, Parcells kept him on.
We won't use a top pick on a QB EVER???? are you f'ing serious, out of the 4 drafts they've had they've picked 2 QB's and those QB's were the Tuna's choice. Do you honestly think they won't be picking a QB first this year???
God, some of you are so blinded by hate you can't see beyond your own ***.
Teflon Tony. The guy isn't responsible for a single bad thing on this 3-8 team, or the back-to-back 7-9 teams before it.
Each year it's been a different coordinator's fault. This year he need a QB, because apparently he's the only head coach in the NFL that has zero say in personnel decisions...unless they're good personnel decisions of course, I bet his name was written all over bringing in Cam Wake.
Next year, if he's still around (which he won't be), what will the excuse be? Needs a different chewing gum? Needs a new fist pump coordinator?
The problem is you retard fans always need someone to lynch for bad luck. You do realize we have outscored our opponents by 5 points this year. I doubt there's ever been another 3-8 team in the league that's ever done that. If we get a QB that can consistently make plays we will do well.
All firing Sparano will do is set us back another 3 years so that some other ******* can come in here and lose until he gets a QB.
Learn from the most successful teams in the NFL, Continuity wins, Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles.
****, look at Gary Kubiak this year, everyone was up in arms that he wasn't fired in Houston, and now, since the GM allowed his system to develop, they are having their best season.
Say YES to Continuity.

Also, can you really say with a straight face that the mistakes Sparano makes are similar to the ones that Belichick makes? Is Belichick constantly outcoached in the second half of games like Sparano is? We must be watching two different NFLs.
For every team you mentioned that has stayed consistent with their coaches, I can name a team that improved after firing their coaches for another.
As far as the quarterback excuse is being thrown around: Tony Sparano decided that Chad Henne was his franchise quarterback. He was wrong. He deserves to lose his job based on that if nothing else. The losing seasons, horrible starting line-up decisions, and horrific game day mistakes are simply icing on the cake.
Tony Sparano opened this season with a handpicked coaching staff, with a draft and free agent period that he had say over(he had say in previous years to, but this was more official as it was written into his contract), and started the season with "his guy" at quarterback. The result was an 0-7 start and a 3-8 record. The man has had 4 years to clean up this mess. He has failed to do so.
Any excuse you want to throw up is completely undermined by the fact that we are 3-8. There are no moral victories in the NFL. We are a bad team being lead by a bad coach. You have provided no proof that Sparano can succeed on this team other then stating "other bad coaches have had success in the past with good quarterbacks". Fact is, Sparano had multiple chances to get a good quarterback. In usual fashion, he couldn't evaluate the talent on his team or in the draft correctly and it lead to failure.
