We were having this debate in Southern Comfort earlier this season before the hack job happened. At that time I argued that Jim Zorn could be coach of the year if the Redskins managed to win the NFC East. But obviously things have changed. My first thought was Mike Smith of Atlanta for the turnaround, but now I would switch my vote to Tony Sparano for helping the Dolphins turn a 1-15 team to a team tied for the division lead in the AFC East.

If its not Mike Smith then there is NO justice.

The only other coach that I think deserves a mention is Mike Singletary, but without a full year he wont get as much as a mention.

Why not Sparano?

In a word?

Parcells

Right or wrong Sparano is going to have to share credit for the turn around with the Tuna.

Smith, Whisenhunt, Fisher.....I'd also like to give some credit to Dungy for once again getting his guys together when it looked like the party was over.

Foxy gets kudos from me as well.

I voted for Smith, because nobody really expected anything from Atlanta this year.

No way Wisenhunt should even be mentioned.....Cardinals are the receipient of the most God Awful division in football. Put them in most any other division and they are a 3rd place team.

Has to be Smith or Sparano.

i voted for mike smith, but for some reason, i didnt see tony sporano. both have done a great job, but considering that the dolphins sucked even more than the falcons did last year, i think he should get the nod.

While I agree with this, it was a ballsy decision to stick with Warner again this year even though they invested a 1st round pick on Leinart. And we'll never know how much say he has in the front office side of things, but refusing to deal Anquan Boldin despite his frustrations and insistence that he would not come back to Arizona next year ended up paying dividends too (and now Boldin is saying he wants to come back). Couple that with a huge win against the Cowboys at home (despite the refs trying to help America's team) and a blowout win against a pretty good Dolphins team, and nearly knocked the Panthers off...I think he's done a pretty good job. But he doesn't have a resume like the other guys, that's for sure.

I voted for Sparano for obvious reasons lol....

but really the guy is ridiculous, besides showing his junk (singletary) he is as fired up as they come.....we make an extra point and the guy dry humps our special teams coach

i love seeing this guy on our sidelines, and i hope hes there for years to come...he gets in guys faces but also high fives them when they do something good, i understand and respect the other options but for me it has to be sparano.....we get rid of jast taylor and zach thomas....we bring in a nose tackle (jason ferguson) who was considered washed up....and starting channing crowder and akin ayodele at inside linebacker (who?)

"noodle arm" pennington and hemp head ricky williams are our catalysts on offense, oh and greg camarillo........yes.....greg camarillo is our best reciever (was untill he got hurt)

and we are 1st place in the east at 8-5 after going 1-15.....i mean the dude deserves it...imo

The more I think about it, the more I think Sparano deserves it. Will the Dolphins have a single Pro Bowler on their roster?
