Coach Sparano, this one's on you.
But to tell you the truth, I don't have to tell you. Coach explains it well with this nugget:
"It’s baffling to me. It really is. I don’t have any answers for it. We’ve got to do a better job."
Really Coach Sparano? Really? Is it really that baffling to you? You're the last one still confused by it. Here's what one of your veteran leaders have to say about this:
We have to start practicing like it’s the game. We have to do that because so far, we’ve been playing a lot like we practice. We definitely have because some of the things that have been happening in practice have been happening in the game. And they’re not good things, and they continue to show up in the game.
That was Yeremiah Bell. Now here's the shocking thing: Daniel Thomas, a rookie who played in his first regular season NFL game concurred with Bell on that when asked about it:
“I definitely agree with that, we have a lot of mental mistakes in practice, and sometimes it carries on into the game.”
Now as far as bad practices go, who do you blame for that? Yes some of it falls on the players, which is what Jason Taylor basically said behind closed doors after Sunday's game, as well as when he said that some of the players were "Losing Confidence."
But that all starts with the coaches.
Nolan's defense has been atrocious but we know he's a good coach and will get an improvement from that unit.
Daboll's offense still has some kinks to work out but thus far has been relatively solid, and since we now know what we can get from Daniel Thomas, we should have some balance against Cleveland.
But at the top? Its not looking too good for Tony Sparano.
If the Dolphins are still winless after their road trip (@Cleveland, @San Diego, bye week, @New York Jets), then expect Tony Sparano to be cleaning his office out on October 18th.
Possibly even earlier.
