Dolphins coach Tony Sparano’s job is safe for now by all indications in Miami.
All scoring plays are reviewed, but Sparano took a timeout to get the officials to take a longer look upstairs. They eventually did look at the play, but the score was upheld.
“If I don’t call timeout we’re all [explicit]. Now I’m getting fired,” Sparano told the officials according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Ugh. That’s just sorta sad. And it’s worth pointing out that the Dolphins led 15-7 at the time.
All Miami had to do was recover an onside kick and they win. Recover that kick and we wouldn’t have the fawning Tim Tebow coverage today or the sad Tony Sparano press conference after the game.
