Miami barely gets to 16 points. I would argue that Hilliard's TD was wrong - he never broke the plane. But I think the officials actually felt sorry for Miami and cut them a break. (ha)
At various times, it looked tantilizingly close - as though the Fins might actually win. But you knew that somehow, some way, they would manage to lose. The team has everything at stake, and Tony remains true to himself and settles for field goals, rather than simply pressing on, and letting things play out. The bootin' bull is nothing, if not consistent.
Wake had a sack and Ian Eagle was saying he's been a good player having 18 sacks in 20 games. And that is an accomplishment. But it actually hasn't done much good. In that span, Miami only has a couple of wins. Jason Taylor "started," but like the rest of the defense, his part was played by an actor, brought in from LA. (It was nice of Steve Ross to hire a busload of actors to play the fins, and let the players have the day off, wasn't it?)
And so comes the bye. Maybe the owner cuts ties with Sparano. Maybe not.
But I think its time to start up the discussion about the next head coach - and what QB prospect (and probably veteran QB) we'd like to see here next year.
I personally am not big on retread coaches - please no Cowher or Gruden. Instead give me a guy like Rob Ryan. He's about as opposite to Sparano as I can imagine. Where everything is a secret with Sparano; with Rob its all on the table. And imagine how much fun the Jets games would be when he could tweak his brother. Talk about creating a buzz!
Funny how we had one head coach here for 26 years, and really 4 QBs in that time. And in the last 15 years, we've had 6 head coaches and a boatload of QBs (I think its 12?)
Ah well, 2012 is our year!!!
