Dan Marino is not walking through that door. Larry Csonka is not walking through that door. Tony Sparano, however, might very well be walking out the door in Miami.
Things seemed bright for Sparano in the sunshine state back in 2008. He led the Dolphins to the playoffs in his first season as coach but since then his record is just 14-22 including a 0-4 start this year.
The Dolphins might not be the worst team in the league but they sure do look like it. The offense is dreadful both on the ground and through the air. Reggie Bush has scored only one rushing touchdown and he leads the team.
The passing game was bad before and now with Chad Henne on the shelf for the entire season with a shoulder injury, things figure to go from bad to worse.
The Dolphins defense is equally terrible giving up 104 points in only four games this season and failing to make a meaningful impact in any game so far.
Making matters worse for Miami of the 12 games remaining on their schedule, only three are against teams with losing records currently.
The silver lining for Miami may come on January 2nd, which is the day after the last game of the season. If things continue the way they’ve been going the team will have the top pick in the “Andrew Luck” sweepstakes. Unfortunately, Tony Sparano won’t be around to celebrate with the team.
