    On the D his DL is good with two possibly 3 pass rushers, can't stop the run, can't cover TE and the secondary is much improved, Sparano issue with the secondary was he wasn't afraid to play rookies back there...something Philbin refuses to do.....

    If I was owner of a team and had to pick a HC and could only choose between these two, I would hire Sparano.....
    no offense but I hope to god you don't have enough money to buy the Fins, or any of the pro teams I root for...

    Sparano and his coaching staff ruined what chance Henne had, once they brought in Penny and put him under Penny limp wing.
    While both are gone, one still matters on Sundays here and there, the other is pumping his fist as a positional know nothing at a irrelevant landing spot in the NFL. The Black Hole of NFL Sundays, where gang members and the trash of society mingle to cheer on their pathetic franchise.

    To my eyes Sparano coached like a baboon and the stats back that perception up. I don't know where you guys are getting this Sparano would have been a God with Tannehill stuff from, like I said Philbin is 13-1 when he gets good QB play which is a 93% win percentage. Even when Sparano had Pennington he was still only 8-3 when Pennington played well which is 73%. The diference is Pennington gave Sparano 11 good games for the season and had a passer rating of 100+ on the season, it would take a bad coaching job to not make the playoffs when your QB plays to 100+ PR.

    No offense taken, so I take it that you would take Philbin.....team under performed in the two most critical games of his HC career, had a national bullying scandal on his watch, allowed Richie to be voted in as a Team leader, made a great decision on picking RT in the draft then allowed Martin to be his starting LT knowing he had head issues which resulted in RT almost getting killed, traded or cut all of the real leaders on the team and then had the nerve to be upset when Dungy called him out for his lack of leadership......I liked Philbin his first yr, was ok with him during the second until all the behind the scenes crap came out and we got the chance to see his decision making skills......I hope he can turn it around in his 3rd yr.......

    He was 8-3 with Pennington and a team that was 1-15 the previous yr, that team had holes and if it wasn't for the Wild Cat they would have been a 500 ball team....Pennington QB rating was great because he didn't turn the ball over not because he was putting up big numbers in the passing game....he threw about 220 yrd a game with his weak arm, that team was 28th in scoring with Pennington 100 QBR...they won that yr because of the running game and defense and Pennington didn't turn the ball over.....

    I don't think Sparano is a god by no means (with or without RT), but he is better than Philbin and this stage of Philbin career.......

    I wonder why Ireland was fired, was it just because he screwed up one too many coffee orders? It seems silly to be paying a guy millions of dollars a year to be responsible for nothing but according to some that must have been the case.

    I disagree, Sparano, his staff and the fans gave Henne every chance possible to get it done and he couldn't.....that's on Henne......

    You're blaming Philbin for things I would consider Ireland responsible for like finding a suitable LT.

    Sparano took a 1-15 team to 11-5, winning the division, and our first playoff in 7 years, tied fr the biggest turnaround in the NFL, with Penny having a great year. Then, it was two 7-9 seasons with Henne, before the Harbaugh mess, 4-9 before being fired.

    He had an antique as an OC, and a VG DC, did not get along with Ireland, and had limited talent.

    Philbin came in and went 7-9 and 8-8 with Tannehill, an antique at OC, and a good DC. He also did not get along with Ireland, and had his own mess with Bully Gate.

    Has either one proven to be better than the other so far?
    In reality at this point Sparano had proven to be better based on his year one. You know though as fans many people only see things as rosy in the now.
    People take all credit away from a player or a coach and put it elsewhere when they are gone.
    I don't think either coach is really a good head coach
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.
