All of us that have jobs are evaluated at least once a year to mark the progress or regression we've made on the job. Am I right?
So an evaluation isn't an insult.
So, as I write in my Sunday column, the Dolphins need to perform a comprehensive top to bottom evaluation of the entire football side of the franchise.
In other words, coach Tony Sparano needs to be evaluated.
General manager Jeff Ireland needs to be evaluated.
All the players need to be evaluated.
All the assistants need to be evaluated.
I tell you in the column what result the evaluation of Sparano and Ireland should be, barring a final month collapse by the Dolphins.
I also tell you why the Dolphins need to encourage a couple of other high-ranking assistants to find something else to do next season because their work in 2010 won't stand up very well to an honest evaluation, regardless of what happens in the final four weeks of the season.
Those final four weeks begin today, by the way, with the Dolphins facing the New York Jets. We will have a live blog around 4 p.m. I will update the blog and and get us set up for the live blog, with pregame news, well before then.
So come back.
