Be honest, the Dolphins’ hiring of Tony Sparano last year didn’t exactly knock you off your feet. In fact, you probably made Tony Soprano jokes. But you can’t argue with the results, as the Dolphins will play host to the Ravens in an AFC Wild-Card Game on Sunday. Palm Beach Post columnist Greg Stoda believes that the Dolphins finally got it right in their coaching search.
OK, not even a season as stunningly successful as the one playoff-bound Miami just authored in the immediate wake of last year’s 1-15 debacle is enough to proclaim Sparano’s inarguable genius. But the point worth making is how Sparano already seems more connected to his Dolphins than Jimmy Johnson, Dave Wannstedt, Nick Saban or Cam Cameron ever were to their Miami teams. MORE
