    The idea of a competitive season is pulling away from this organization quickly. Tony Sparano had to have a win in Cleveland. Yes, it was a close game. Yes, Miami had its opportunities. The Dolphins held the ball in Cleveland for 37:51, yet couldn't capitalize. And thus, 0-3 is oh-and-three.

    Tony Sparano might want to contact a good realtor. His days are numbered -- even if the Dolphins aren't saying it just yet.

    The hot seat is warming up in a hurry for head coach Tony Sparano. (Walker)

    [SIZE=+0]The season isn't even a quarter over and already Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano seems like a dead man walking. I don't know Sparano personally, but I'm told he's a good coach and a good man, and he'll land quickly on his feet in his next NFL gig. But he looks like he's out of bullets and ideas in Miami. The Dolphins tried to replace him last offseason and didn't get it done. They will the next time firing season rolls around.

    The Dolphins are one game into the meat of a three-game road stand -- next they are @ San Diego then @ the Jets. Tough to see them getting out of this one.

    Our weekly Coaches Hot Seat feature will have a familiar name at the top.

    I spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out when Tony Sparano will be fired this year. My guess is Week 12 - after the Cowboys destroy the Dolphins on Thanksgiving.

    Some years it really hard to do these. No one likes to read bad opinions of their team but this years is especially tough when every ranking I have seen has the Pats, Jets and Bills in the top 10 and we are hovering around 27-30.

    I know some want us in the suck for luck sweepstakes but I really would like to see us win and prove that the team as a whole is not terrible. If we are as bad as our record sasy then we can look forward two several more seasons like this before things get better.
