    Should the Miami Dolphins have fired Tony Sparano?

    Article by Ben Volin:

    http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com/theda...-tony-sparano/

    Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was asked on Friday if he still believes that firing Tony Sparano was the right move, and he didn’t hesitate with his answer: “Absolutely,” he said.

    And it’s hard to blame him. The Dolphins’ fan base had grown weary of Sparano after three straight disappointing seasons, including an 0-7 start this year that kept paying customers at home instead of buying tickets to the games.
    But it’s hard not to wonder if stability, and not yet another “instant-fix” coaching staff, would have been the best plan for the Dolphins to succeed in 2012.

    This is an obvious yes.

    What's the point of keeping stability in your coaching staff, when your team gets noticeably worse year after year. Tony Sparano could be a decent coach someday, but come on, his expertise is offensive line. Minimal experience in coaching an offense. We allowed the most sacks in franchise history last year - Tony had used 2 of our 4 fist rounds picks on linemen. And our line still sucked. More importantly, it became clear Tony and his staff was holding this team back. Chad Henne didn't get very far in four years with Tony did he? How do you have the wrong personnel on the field on the final drive in the cleveland game? Why were we content with a 1 point lead in Dallas on Thanksgiving? Where in God's name do our timeouts go? Why have we consistently taken a knee within 2 minutes of the first half? Players don't have a choice in those decisions - they have to go along with them.

    Great players coach, but as for the X's and O's, he has a lot to learn, and this franchise can't afford him learning on the job.

    Um, absolutely. Too conservative, resulting in back to back 7-9 seasons and an 0-7 start.
