    Props to Sparano. I wasn't sure he had it in him. Bonamego couldn't deserve to be fired anymore. ST's has been abysmal his whole time here.

    i hope it's only temporary, cause what could we expect out of that dolt's assistant if he was absolutely terrible?

    sparano defends henne. sees progress. wouldve liked not to have the picks obviously but spent time pointing out positives

    feels on defense, stopping the run was the problem

    gotta wonder. he learned sp tms under this guy. i dont think they feel the problem is the scheme but rather the execution. if its execution then he might succeed if he can get through to the players. if its scheme he will probably fail

    The point of the matter is it proved Sparano has the balls to do what is needed to make this team better.

    I wonder why they fired him... I mean 4 blocked punts (including preseason) a KO return for a TD, a blocked FG and not production from the return game... I mean other then that the guy did a great job!

    well no poo... that is what happens when you dont address the NT position and take your best DLman and move him to a position he can't play (starks).

    Henning is def turning it around as of late with the playcalling. Don't get me wrong, I never wana see the WC if it isn't on 1st down or 2nd and short.

    Henne isn't the problem either. I love how he threw those picks and then responded by leading us down the field for a TD. He can get it together.

    Esp nice matchup for him against GB's inexperienced secondary.

    soliai played there and didnt have the best game. i think the bigger problem was dobbins. we were flooding the passing lanes however. our strategy was to take away the pass first. when you do that you leave yourself vulnerable

    A little faith restored.

    Seriously, the amount of mistakes in one night this team made on ST's won't be matched by some other teams ALL YEAR.

    It was simply unbelievable.

    Bonamego really should have just headed for the airport right after the game.

    It doesn't get any nicer than this New England defense. Quite possibly the worst pass defense in football today. And I watched Houston.

    Trust me, GB looks very nice also.

    Def nice enough that he can have a bounce-back game.

    HOU had a solid defense but losing Barwin really knocked them for a loop.

    I'm suprised it took this long. I think they knew it wasn't a personnel problem.

    It had to happen. Promoting his understudy is a questionable move, but honestly, short of going out and interviewing to fill the position (which is unrealistic) he had to promote the next guy.

    Bonamego needed to go, but I wonder if part of his downfall this seaosn was due to the fact that Sparano/Ireland kept cutting and resigning players that essentially strictly played special teams. When the unit keeps getting busted up, it leads to miscommunication and people not knowing their roles, which were the main problems we saw last night from them.

    You can make the argument that it is/was Bonamego's job to coach them up regardless, but having some stability with that unit would be nice as well.

    i only give him the left ball back..he gets the right ball back when he gets henning to stop being cutesy and killing drives or fires him all together.hmm execution but we should'nt let one or 2 mistakes on o cost us the entire series..good teams play through a holding call here and there.it doesn't help that the refs are not getting it done..that pi on marshall was bs..he was within five yards no? the missed block in the back on the kick return for td,the non-holding call on wake.i know that alone they didn't cost us the game but adding all that in didn't help our situation either..those were big moments in the game taken back due to poor officiatting.

    here's the new guy's bio

    [​IMG]

    Darren Rizzi is entering his second season as both an NFL assistant a member of the Dolphins’ coaching staff. He joined the Dolphins in 2009 with four years of experience as a college head coach, including the 2008 season at the University of Rhode Island.

    Rizzi embarks on first NFL coaching position with a plethora of experience as a special teams coach. Prior to taking over the program at URI, Rizzi was an assistant at Rutgers for the previous six seasons (2002-07), where he headed up the Scarlet Knights’ special teams unit. He also tutored the team’s running backs his first three years there and the linebackers for his final three. In addition, he held the title of assistant head coach from 2004-06 and associate head coach in 2007. In Rizzi’s six years at RU, he coached three players who earned first-team All-Big East honors in special teams including kick returner Nate Jones (2002), kick/punt returner Willie Foster (2005) and punter Joe Radigan (2006). Jones also was named the conference’s co-Special Teams Player of the Year in 2002 while Foster was the Big East Special Teams Player of the Year in 2005.

    Before his stint at Rutgers, Rizzi was the head coach at the University of New Haven, where he guided the Chargers to a three-year record of 15-14 from 1999-2001. Rizzi began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Colgate in 1993. He moved on to staff at New Haven from 1994-97, one which was headed up by current Dolphins Head Coach Tony Sparano. He was UNH’s defensive coordinator in his final year there, after overseeing the special teams and defensive line his first three. Rizzi was the special teams and linebackers coach at Northeastern University in 1998 before returning to New Haven the following year.

    Rizzi played tight end at Rhode Island, where he first walked on in 1988. He went on to tally 160 receptions for 2,426 yards and 15 touchdowns in his collegiate career and was a consensus All America selection in 1992. Following his time at Rhode Island, Rizzi was signed as a free agent by the Philadelphia Eagles prior to beginning his coaching career. A native of Hillsdale, N.J. and a graduate of Bergen Catholic High School in New Jersey, Rizzi earned a degree in speech communications from URI in 1992.

    He and his wife, Tracey, have two daughters, Mackenzie and Alexandra, and three sons, Christian, Casey and Cameron.
