08:41 AM ET 12.11 | Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has made no concrete, irreversible decision on Tony Sparano's future, and the manner in which the Dolphins play this season's final month will stamp that fateful call, people with knowledge of the situation said this week. Sparano is definitely at risk. Despite Ross's desire to have an organization that enjoys continuity in both the coaching staff and personnel department, he has been disappointed by the team's 4-8 record and particularly the 0-7 start. And, yes, he blames part of that poor record and terrible start on Sparano and the coaching staff.

Considering Ross was trying to replace him before the start of the season, this guy is DONE!

What the hell has happened to the Dolphins anyway? They give up on football down in Florida?

They have all that warm weather, so they figure anything else is just icing on the cake. Complacency, I believe.

I for one love the coaching carousel. Gives hope to the fans every time a new one comes in. Then after two or three years of soul crushing despair, run them out of town and start the whole thing over again. It's almost Zen in a way.

Forget about the Dolphins, I can't wait for the positively scintillating Rams/Seahawks game tomorrow night.Who's with me?Doesn't the league have some type of flex schedule thing they instituted a few years back to spare us from Monday night JV games like this?

Flex is only for Sunday games Rex

It seems like the majority of the Monday Night match-ups are less than watchable. As is most of the programming on ESPN.

Sounds like ESPN isn't coughing up enough money and the league is hosing them. Rams and Seahawks didn't look like much of a game back when the schedule was made.

DA BEARS... versus Tebow and the Broncos D.

It won't be a pleasant afternoon for Caleb Hanie. But then, none of his games have been so far.
