I said I would not do this in one of my twitter posts, but I really have to now. I said I would refrain from playing NFL front office, but I will.
Things are heating up in the way of college coaching black Monday if you will. There are at least 10 new job openings for NCAA Division 1A coaching positions and soon there will be more.
The aftermath after a dismal performance in Dallas is that the Dolphins are no longer going to have a winning season and at best they can win maybe 1 or 2 more games.
But, why do so now? Why put in the hard work? Why have the players play for 8-8?
Why stay with the coach who will no longer be the coach after this season?
Why stay with the QB who will not be better than he is already? Better is being 3 for 4 in the red zone as opposed to 0-4.
Better is driving a team down the field and taking advantage of two early turnovers in the first half.
Matt Moore, thanks for keeping the seat warm, and now it's your job to train Mr. Rookie QB (The face of the franchise).
The best we will see Matt Moore is what we have seen already.
Let´s move on. Let´s not continue with this charade of hoping that the Dolphins can capture lightning in a bottle to go 8-8.
I have as much Dolphin pride as any Dolphin fan and I can´t stand losing, but I really also want to find a way of starting over.
I really want a GM (A tireless worker with a track record of evaluating talent), Head Coach with a proven track record of coaching in the NFL, and a QB that can start right away. It would be fine for the QB to take bumps and bruises and learn how to win in this league with the support of a good running back and the leadership at wide receiver already in place.
To get there, the Dolphins are going to have to find a way to part ways with Tony Sparano sooner rather than later, maybe after this week.
Sparano is a hard-nosed, but yet staunch defender of his players. In the NFL, players are expected to work hard because they are professional. They are also expected to win and 0-7 is awful in the NFL. It's as bad of start that a team can have and to turn it around is a monumental undertaking.
In college it´s acceptable to win only 6 or 7 games and make a bowl game for some programs. Let´s have Tony look for an opportunity as a Head Coach in college this time and place an assistant such as Mike Nolan or Karl Dorrell as the interim coach for the final remaining games.
Let´s do the right thing Mr. Ross, let´s make a change for the better and get your man in place by the end of the season!
