Tony Sparano needs to make his specialty, the O-line, more special

    Colombo was later seen with a red cloth, presumably for his anticipated matador impersonations this season.

    You mean horrible LAST YEAR? What other Sparano years was the O-Line "horrible"?

    That's an exaggeration. They gambled on Smiley and Grove, hoping they could stay healthy. When they were healthy, they played very well. Had they stayed healthy the Phins would have had an exceptional O-line.
    Unfortunately the gamble didn't work and the FO had to scramble to replace 2 positions on the O-line. That's where the problems have been the last 2 seasons.
    Personally, I would have liked to see them sign one of the better FA lineman this offseason.

    Although injuries played their role last year, the o-line being that bad was inexcusable. With spending a 1st round pick on an offensive lineman again this year, this line has to rise to the occasion. Anything else is unacceptable.
