Loses by 1 vote is just another way of saying LOSER. Just like the dulfins today.
MVP? Noodle arm??? Ha!!! I'll bet there are a few voters looking for some cyanide right now, rather than fess up.

"you're"... embrace the contraction.

in regards to the topic at hand, great job sparano. regardless of your undeniably easy schedule, you found a way to pull this collective bag of sh|t together and get them a division championship while all the other teams in your division were down. enjoy the good days while they're here... even shula got ran out of town.

Of course you're irritable after such an embarrassing, pathetic, laughable, ridiculous display. It was GREAT to watch though, and had all the drama of a "Pink Panther" movie and almost as hilarious.

Any system that allows half votes is inherently gutless. That said, I can state that 27.5 sports writers on this nationwide panel are drooling idiots.

Smith AND Sparano did a great job this year, masterminded two great turn arounds. But I understand the edge to Smith, because of what he had to overcome in regard to Michael Vick the Pryck, and the stench that MV had left in that locker room.

One and out, the haters say. LMAO--It's still quite an accomplishment to even have BEEN there, for the Falcons and the Dolphins, and for those who want to discredit them because they lost in the first round, well it sounds like somebody is jealous or just plain stupid.

The reason Sprano didn;t win the Coach of the Year is he coaches a team from So Fla.. And, this is what happens when people who have never played the game and no nothing about coaching, vote for the coach of the year. Its like me voting for the best airline pilot of the year. I dont fly and I dont fly airliners.
Say, how are things in Washington for the Dancing Queen. Thought he was headed for the playoffs this season???
