    This video courtesy of the dolphins 1st TD ...
    this is grade school - they deserved to lose thinking they actually accomplished something.

    Would Belichick do this on an opening drive?
    Would he fire himself if he did?

    Sporano ... :rofl: ... the air-five slap.

    Sporano is a JOKE.


    I thought this thread was about their post-game pressers.


    BB team just won on the road and had control of the game. BB said "we're not a good football team now. We did some things okay, but still need to improve"

    Sporano's team got somewhat embarassed at home, and he said "I think we did okay tonight. We have stuff to be optimistic about, like our offense"


    LOL. Some of these coaches just don't get it, or are too ignorant to get it. It's called classical conditioning. He's conditioning his players to think it's OKAY TO LOSE.



    BB would also say stuff like "Solder played well, Waters at RG, Connelly at Center....." mentioning every players name, showing he knows all the details.

    Sporano said stuff like "that kid did this, that guy covered the other guy, the guy on the other team" etc.... showing his lack of attention to detail.




    He had one good year coaching in Miami, but I question how much he even knows the game! I give him another year or two before he gets fired.

    are you law enforcement?

    you see things like, little nuances, that belie a trained eye...

    I happen to agree with you except I think he may get the axe a little sooner than that...

    I'm thinking this year, they want to enter the LUCK sweepstakes.

    Sparano is infamous for his little fist pumps.
    I've seen guys on Dolphins forums taking spread bets on the season total.

    Here's part of his post game interview:

    NFL Videos: Dolphins postgame press conference


    Sporano says: "they threw whatever the heck that thing was, down the middle of the field, from the 2 yard line or so".... (referring to Wes Welkers 99 TD reception)


    BB could've cited the name of the player, the route the WR ran, the coverage, the significance of how bad it is to give up the longest reception in the history of the NFL. etc..


    It also shows Sporano doesnt even know what's going on the very field right infront of him, as he says its from the 2 yard line. It was actually only HALF A YARD away from our goal line. Perhaps his total lack of awareness on field position is a reason why the Dolphins weren't able to punch the ball in and score. They only needed half a yard and were throwing.... with Henne.... when they have one of the best LT's in the NFL to runblock. LOL. It just shows me how much of a dummy Sporano is.




    That attention to detail is just one of many things that sets BB apart from high school coaches like Sporano.


    I can just imagine Sporano during film study and team meetings. "Okay guy with your hat on backwards, I need you to run around out there away from the DB and catch that thingy majiggy made of pigskin and then run into the endzone, okay?"

    I noticed this too. He did crap like that the entire first half, and looked like an idiot doing it.

    If we're talking about differences between the two, don't forget to add 3 Lombardi trophies...

    I'm okay with the emotion Sporano displays.
    Night game sunglasses though are a whole different issue (unless he has a medical reason to be wearing them).

    I think he actually does have a medical condition. I remember hearing that last season when he was sporting shades in last year's edition of our MNF showdown.

    It is some rare medical condition that results in the sunglasses...

    Few measure up to the guy the media hates because he doesn't gush or give them the kind of answers that validate their questions. That was all Kara Henderson on NFLN could blather about last evening. That said, Sporano is in a very different predicament. He almost has to acknowledge improvement on offense because it could be what saves his ass this season because that D was a shell of it's former self (considering as the talking heads kept reminding us it was a top ten D last season, top 5 at times, and returned 10 starters). Hopefully the Doofins can clean a few things up and give a couple of other AFC contenders fits, including the one whose HC handed out game balls left and right after Tony Romo handed his team a W Sunday night...and even reserved the last one for himself for winning the inaugral Ryan bowl...:rolleyes:

    Remember, most of these guys are perpetually concerned about what media perception of them could result in...

    I have grown to appreciate BB's mostly calm demeanor on the sidelines. He just seems like a guy who is in control.

    Even after that horrible first defensive drive there was no sign of agitation they showed him talking into the headset, no-doubt discussing how they would change things on the next drive.

    There are obvious differences in coaches who are involved in the play-calling and game-planning and coaches, cough Sporano cough, who are glorified cheer-leaders on game day.

    This guy just plain doesn't get it. displaying such an immaturity, I don't know how he is still a head coach in this league when others like cowher, fisher, gruden are waiting for a gig.

    I really want a wayward defender from any team crash in to him at full sprint in the side line .. well, may be not.. I was just plain angry looking at the video ..;)

    whew.. what to do, certain personalities really gets me pissed off.

    Love to see Sporano and the 2 Ryan brothers coaching on the same team. Probably in-game fist fights between the three.

    "Build them up when they lose and break them down when they win" is a pretty proven strategy for coaching young men.
