Pressure building for Tony Sparano

The hot seat is warming up for Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano. Winless in two games, Sparano might need to beat the Cleveland Browns to avoid an early hook from owner Stephen Ross, according to the Miami Herald. A friend of Ross told the Herald that Ross said after the second defeat of the year that, "the team is not holding up its end of the bargain."

Per the report, Ross' patience with the current regime is nearly at an end.

"Not a happy owner," the source told the Herald. The Dolphins have been stewing internally with outside linebacker Jason Taylor ripping teammates for their lack of intensity in practice. The Dolphins have gone 1-11 in their past 12 home games.

"I don't have any answers for it," Sparano said. None of this bodes well for him or general manager Jeff Ireland.
