Tony Sparano's new mantra

Each season, coach Sparano comes up with a new phrase to rally the team around.

This season its "I'M STARVING -- FEED THE WOLF"
 
He handed out T-shirts to the players with that matra yesterday.  According to an interview the idea came about because a spring practice was lackadaisical. Quoth he:
 
``I had a team meeting and kind of got into them a little bit, It was about 7-9 not being good enough and how this team shouldn't be fat, they should be starving. They should be hungry and want to feed the wolf. So now when we talk about this we talk about feeding the wolf with little successes every day.''
 
I guess its working, witness Brandon Marshall's comments

``That's feeding us as a team, as a whole, each time we come out on the field,.We stay hungry, we get hungrier. We're stuffing ourselves with great practices.''

And Karlos Dansby:
 
``We're fighting for one goal: Win it all. We're starving for success.''
