Every franchise he's been to, he brought them up to mediocre at best...then leaves after a short tenure.
Everyone wanted Jimmy....did'nt work out.
Everyone wanted Saban....did'nt work.
Now everyone wanted Cam gone and now think the TUNA is going to be the savior just like the previous Coaches that came and went!!
If Cam would have had more time to work out all the kinks and get rid of some of these veterens and load up on draft picks....who knows.
One thing is that I like to see this team go another direction then what is has been doing for the past ten years...
Oh yeah....stop talking about Marino, he's insignificant now, no Super Bowls....remember?
Thanks for your response to my question.

I agree with you that there is no way to tell if Cam would have done better in Year 2. Personally, I defended keeping him all season long, because I think no matter who was in charge, it was going to take time to rebuild the roster and reshape the team. And more instability was not the answer.

However, how do we know that Sparano (if indeed that is who will be the new coach) is the wrong choice? What has he done/not done to tell us he is a mistake?

I'm not worried if Parcells ends up leaving 'early'. In this case, he is serving as the owner's representative, not as coach. He is building an organization that if done the right way will serve the Dolphins well long after he is gone. Even if Parcells were to leave during this next season, that does not mean that the new coach and GM would somehow be lost as well - they would carry on with their jobs.

If anything, what I am pleased to see is that Parcells is a guy who is constructing an organization based on a common philosophy - something that Huizenga cannot do because he is not a 'football guy' like some owners. He's a hands-off owner. Finally there is someone in charge who has a clear understanding of the way a front office can work and will hopefully put all the pieces in place and continue to function well.

Lastly, Marino is not insignificant to either the history of this franchise or to the NFL in general. Sorry, have to disagree with you there, and I would dare say that many others - Dolphin fans or not - would feel the same way and acknowledge his contribution to the legacy of the quarterback position.

Ok here's my problem with Sporano.....two years in a row the talented Cowboys have in the first round again....what's the big deal? So what?...they played one more game than the Dolphins did this year and next weekend all the players will be in the same position as the dolphins....at home watching the game.

It's seems that these teams that Parcells puts together have a habit of losing in the playoffs and not winning it all.

I grew up watching the Marino/Shula era....every year they make the playoffs only to get destroyed by Buffalo. To me that is ALMOST as dissappointing as going 1-15.

My point is that I was excited to see a guy come in and make changes for the better (stocking up and draft picks) something that has not been done in a long long time down here. Cam planned on bringing youth to this franchise.

Now thanks to Cam.....Parcells walks into a good situation with Miami. Several high draft picks, a decent rookie class, and $20 million in cap room. By the way....Porter was not Cam's choice.

Now i'm not so sure about the future of this franchise.....sure there will be some improvement....but you know Parcells is not commited here for the long run.......

Those two super bowls Parcells won happend a long....long...long...time ago.....the game has changed from the 80's.

Everyone is so quick to jump on the Parcells/Sporano bandwagon. Yet we know nothing about this Sporano guy except he likes to scowl and look tough....yet it seems to me his Cowboys have lost in the playoffs 2 straight years in a row.

I'm not buying it!!

He won the super bowl in 1986, and 1990, and he won the AFC championship in '96 with the Patriots, won the division and eventually lost the afc championship with the jets in '98 and took the cowboys to the playoffs twice, in '03 and '06...I wouldn't call that a long time ago, nor losing all the time in the playoffs.

I haven't jumped on anyone's bandwagon...but there is really no great "experienced" coach available. Parcells has a proven track record, and if he chooses someone to be his puppet for a couple of years while they get their ears wet, I'll support that. That's not jumping on a bandwagon, that's being a fan and supporting your team.

and before you say it again, no, I never called for Cam's head...go back to my previous posts.
