What Does Miami’s Next Head Coach Need To do.

As I’m sure it has with everyone, Tony Sparano’s firing came as a huge shock.  Not that he got fired, but that he got fired during the season.  I think all of you thought as I did that Mr. Ross would wait until after the season was over before making the change.    Now, what about Jeff Ireland?  How did he keep his job?  The more I thought about it, the more I thought it might not be what I wanted, but it was better this way.  Mr. Ross, although a very intelligent man still doesn’t know enough about the NFL to make an informed decision about who should be the next head coach of the Miami Dolphins.  So although I don’t think Ireland is the right guy for the job, I think Mr. Ross made the best choice given the circumstance.

So instead of focusing on who will be the next head coach, I’ve decided to focus on What does he need to do to keep from suffering the same fate as Mr. Sparano.  Now as I sit here about to write this Anti-Sparano post I realized that not everything he did was bad and there are a few qualities that I would like our next H.C. to have as well.  Such as Tony’s relationship with his players. It takes a special man to go through a year like this last one and still get his players to play for him.  There may not have been anything flashy about coach Sparano but you always knew where you stood and his players respected him for that.  So that would be the first thing a new H.C. needs to do.  Be Forth Right and Honest with your team and your fans.  You don’t need to give up your game plan every week to be honest with the fans, and you don’t need to be a Jerk when telling your player about his play on the field.  You do however need to be honest with them.  Let them know where they stand and be firm in your decisions.

    @bill.stowers Bill just listed 12 reasons that Jeff Ireland hasn’t been the worst GM ever. I could not agree more that watching him pick up the trash from the curb in front of Cowboy Stadium has been frustrating, but I do think he has drafted well. Minus a few bonehead selections in the skill positions early on, he has improved dramatically as the years have passed and the Parcells influence has faded. The problem with this team has been and is that they simply do not have a winner to lead them. Not on the sidelines, or behind center. Winners win and losers lose! Sparano was brought up in a program that lost, Chad Henne came from a school that lost!!! Bring us a winner! Keep your eyes on the bowl games this year, the Quarterback who bleeds for the victory is the man we want, whether it’s RG3 or even Brandon Weeden, the victory over the Ducks by Barkeley was enough to get me on his bandwagon. Draft a winner, not a loser!!!
