Meyer is not a Dolphins coach candidate right now

You saw Urban Meyer talking to Dolphins owner Stephen Ross for part of the fourth quarter and into overtime, didn't you?

It was obvious to everyone in the press box. It was obvious to everyone in the stadium. It was obvious to everyone who saw the shot on CBS.

He's not being hired as the team's new coach -- at least not right now.

Team sources are saying that Tony Sparano will remain coach of the team for the near-term, barring a significant change in thinking by Ross. Ross left town after Sunday's comeback 18-15 victory by the Denver Broncos over the Dolphins and is flying across country on business.

That makes a change less likely because it is hard to believe anyone would make such a significant change over the phone.

The same sources are saying the time Ross and Meyer spent on the sideline was completely coincidental. The owner intended to go into the Dolphins locker room to celebrate with his team when he left his suite. But by the time he got to the field level, the Broncos had scored and were lining up for an onside kick.

Anyway, while Meyer would satisfy the "superstar" label the owner is wanting out of his next hire, it doesn't seem terribly likely he'll be Miami's next coach once this season is over. Even the Dolphins believe his next job will be back in college.

God Bless Tim Tebow

Our Luck WILL turn in about six months.

I simply do not understand why the fans are complaining, at least the Dolphins are consistent.

I AM A MIAMI DOLPHINS FAN! I am not complaining. I am hoping for Lucky days.

Who would b a good fit for the next hc? It wont b urban meyer he'll b in columbus oh next year. Wont b gruden he likes being on mnf. I think cowher or fisher r mistakes bc we've done the retread thing b4 and it was a disaster. So now what? Christ im depressed.

I agree with the sentiments on here that Sparano should still be retained. It's not just Luck we're after - it's attracting the best GM and HC too. After the Harbaugh debacle, Ross has to bite his tongue and prove to the candidates that he's not a knee-jerk reactionist who has no loyalty to the men he hires. Cowher, Fisher, or whomever your favorite coach may be won't go for that. I, too, want Sparano and Ireland gone right now (not tomorrow) - but cooler heads have to prevail here and we have to think this out strategically - not emotionally.

how much differnce would the two-pointer make over the one-pointer ... it was still a three possession game... but it would not have made a difference if Praeter had made the two FGs... if we had an offense that was structured to knock it into the endzone from the one, two, five, even the ten yard line... we would probably trip over our shoelaces at the 50 yard line...

Colts losing 62-7. Looks like its going to be a tie for the #1 overall pick. We're both finishing 0-16.

What up fellow buckeyephinfan. I reside in NorthEast Ohio. I agree with you. NO MORE RETREADS!
Would you please settle a doubt of who would draft first if Indy and Us finished 0-16?

ozkar the team with the weakest schedule wins #1 pick in case of tie. We're likely to lose a tiebreaker because the afc east alone is a tougher division the afc south.

Basically going 0-16 against lousier opponents gets you the tiebreaker.

It would be the combined record of all of the teams we've played vs the combined record of all of the teams Indy played.

So we also have to root for all of the teams that beat Indy to keep winning. Then root for all of the teams that beat us to lose and lose often.

Doggone it!

when i first saw this, I was proud and hopeful

now, it sickens me - except for Mr. Chad Pennington - got more respect for that dude every day

POLIAN and the colts are laying down for luck. We just suck!!!!
good thing is the colts play the rams so there will only be two 0 and16. Colts and fins.

Only game left on our schedule Im concerned we may even have a snowball's chance in hell of winning is against the KC Chiefs.

Our greatest roadblocks to not losing were cleveland and Denver. We passed our greatest teast with flying colors.

Im pretty sure this team's ready to fold. At least they sounded that way in today's pressers.

We will lose every single one of them. Disgraceful We'll tarnish 17-0.

San Diego screwed us a little by losing to the Jets. We need all of our opponents to lose as many games as possible to lock up a 1st overall pick tiebreaker situation.

Indy lost 62-7! That score sounds like an Alabama vs Louisiana Monroe score! They're taking this suck for luck thing a helluva lot more serious than we r! Come on guys we can do better than indy!

The Raiders lost today so that helps. We play the Raiders this season.

You're right buckeyephinfan. Let's lay BIGGER EGGS!

Miami 0-16 and winds up with the second pick as the Colt's edge them out~~ That's the way your year is going~~

We were up 15-0 with less than 3 mins to go! We can't let that happen again! 1 win could really screw this whole suck for luck thing! I have a tip for next weeks head coach: if we get to the red zone just kick a field goal even if its on a first down! Tds could really hurt!

I can handle a year.As a Miami Dolphins fan I'm going on decades!

LOL...buckeyephinfan...Miami from the top on down needs to install the strictest discipline to reach 0-16. It takes a commitment by all!

According to Elias Sports Bureau, no team since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 had ever been down as many as 15 points with less than 3 minutes remaining and won.

PATHETIC.

I didn't want to see Sparano fired until the end of the season, but this is just inexcusable.

The 1-15 team at least was worth rooting for.

Not these guys.

Tebow doesn't suck. The Dolphins suck.

And it starts at the top.

Pathetic.

Therefore We'll Suck for Luck IrelandSucks!

OH MY IF THIS DOESN'T MAKE YOU LAUGH...

FEEDBACK APPRECIATED!

OK OK IF THAT LAST ONE WASN'T FUNNY ENOUGH...

No matter what, Let's not fire head coach Tony Sparano. NO MATTER WHAT! Let him finish the season.NO MATTER WHAT!
And NO MORE HEAD COACHES/GM RETREADS!They will only be opportunist of a great golden goose layer!

buckeyes,lol,cheaters for years

nick m that was awesome

peyton manning and the colts are laying down.
i always thougt peyton was a classy guy, but this hold BS about his neck is classless.
Marino would never have sat on the sideline to suck for luck.
Manning will never set foot in canton if goes along with polian's suck for luck.
It is so wrong for a great QB to sit on the sideline, because he doesn't want anything to do with his crappy team.
Marino was a classy guy! Manning is a POS

Peyton is a self serving ass...
How can you watch your team get blown out every week and stand on the sideline to protect your girly neck.
Polian is tanking the season and that's sad.
At least we tried.

F...ck the colts, they will not get Luck!!!!

it's so obvious the colts are laying down and seeing ass....manning on the sideline pisses me off.

Dear mr. Ross
I realize u are a new owner. Maybe u are not aware of age things.
So let me give u a little advice.
FANS like football, that's what we are paying
To watch, not u rubbing butt cheeks with Stars.
YOU never, NEVER, EVER invite the opposing
Team to celebrate in your home. Home meaning
STADIUM! Opposition Meaning FOE, ENEMY!!
U do not UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE consider
MEYER Ur Next HC.
To The Coaches, ther are 4qtrs to a Football Game.
Not 3, Not 3 1/2. U do Not Change Ur defensive
Strategy Midway through the 4th qtr with a 15
Point lead.
TO DC Dolfan. Smile, rejoice. Im officialy Holding
The White Flag. Ive tossed the towel. No im Not
Wishing 0-16. But im Done, Done Surfing for
Live Feeds, Done Sitting in the Morning hours
Watching. Until there Is Change. Im Done.

Over and out

Thouroughly enjoyable. Worst team in the NFL with no reprieve in sight. Who's going to want to go work for this loser owner and franchise. Good luck losers you will be looking for another coach 3-5 years from now when the newest saviour fails.

Manning will never set foot in canton? I guess the FISHTARD fans are as dumb as their HC. Match made in heaven. I guess Peyton has one thing the loser Marino never got and never will get - a ring. He is a lock you moron. This fanchise and it's 400 fans are a disgrace to football.

Are heads rolling yet??

Ross = Moe
Ireland = Larry
Sparano = Curly

Nuff Said

Add Jimmie Johnson to that list...HE STARTED THIS MESS. I wanted Urban Meyer 4 yrs. ago and wouldn't mind him now but his health is a concern, not so sure he wants to come back into coaching?
Can't say much bout' the team. Its all being said. Football isn't any fun anymore.

See the owner talk to Meyer on the sideline was just another of many embarrassments in todays game.

Looking Vontae allow him man to get open and jog after him was the queue that phins gave up on playing the rest of the game. I am mad at myself for even watching the game.

Im not a college football fan, but lately Ive been watching the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Yes Im in the "minority" but Im still a Nick Saban fan. In the 1st half, LOVE how his team plays a "cat and mouse" game with their opponents. In the 2nd half, they are an entirely different team.

This team knows how to make BIG half-time adjustments.

Again, Im in the "minority" but I wish Saban was our head coach. Not saying we would be Super Bowl winners "yet" but we would be highly competitive.

I'd name Urban Meyer our new General manager and FIRE Jeff Ireland immediately! Then allow Urban to decide Tony's fate as our coach! Just saying...

Are you people a bunch of idiots or what!? Surely you have a higher football IQ than this! Urban Meyer will NEVER coach at an NFL level exactly because he runs a spread/option scheme! Sorry folks, that's not anything close to being NFL football, lol! How is it that so many of you don't appear to recognize this fact? Jeesh, this fanbase certainly isn't the brightest, is it.

I love my Phins, but our fans are so foolish. In addition to what I said above, have any of you wizards figured out yet that if we hired Urban Meyer that would mean an IMMEDIATE end to any chance we would be drafting Luck. Again, this is because of the kind of system Meyer would run. Luck can move, but there is no way in heaven or hell that he would want to come play in a scheme like that! It's just laughable to me that you guys take this kind of nonesense so seriously.

Also, what's with all of the Gator hate? The Miami Dolphins did a very strange thing by honoring the UF National Championship teams, but who cares? The Dolphins have no connection to the Miami Hurricanes other than the fact that they share the same city and a portion of the same fanbase. I say portion because not every Dolphins fan is a Hurricane fan. The Dolphins owe the Hurricanes nothing. The Dolphins are a professional enterprise for profit, the Canes are a college supposedly in the business of education. The two are unrelated other than sharing a unique local. Get over it folks, you are embarrassing the smarter fans!

Ha

the NFL is a scam and is paying off someone ?? no one can lose up 15 points with 5 min left in a game...hmmmm....or can they really be that bad to get a 100,000.00 pay check ..a week. thats absurd

primary objective: suck for luck!

GUYS: LUCK AIN'T GOING TO CHANGE MUCH ON THE
FINS. EVERYONE BLAMES T.S.,NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE
BLAMES J.I.THE FINS PROBLEMS (LIKE THE ECONO
MY) IS AT THE TOP. FIRE MR. ROSS,LET HIM SELL
THE TEAM. HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO BE A FOOTBALL
OWNER. HE WANTS "TO ENHANCE YOUR EXPERIENCE" AT
THE STADIUM.IT'LL FASTER TO FIELD A GOOD TEAM,
THAT THE GADGETS & THE CELEBRITIES. WE NEED A
FOOTBALL OWNER, THIS GUY IS A CLOWN.OCCUPY MIAMI. DO NOT GO TO THE GAMES,BUT PLEASE FORGET
ABOUT LUCK.THERE ARE UP TO 5 QB'S ON THE DRAFT
THAT WILL HELP. WE NEED SOMEONE WITH KNOWLEDGE
& TRADITION IN FOOTBALL TO BE CALLING THE SHOTS
FIRE J.I. FIRST & THE T.S. FFORGET ABOUT COWHER
HE IS A DIVA. HE'LL NEVER COME TO MIAMI, HE DOESN'T WANT TO LOOSE FACE. HIRE MIKE MAYOCK
AS YOUR GM & FISHER, MARIUCCI,EDWARDS,OR THE EX
OF THE RAVENS AS A COACH, AND BRING BACK HENNE
EVEN AS A BACKUP. HE'S MUCH BETTER OF WHAT WE
HAVE NOW, & COMING BACK FROM AN INJURY HE WON'T
BE EXPENSIVE.

Every time I see Tony Sparano in Dolphin gear I want to bazooka-retrofeed my last meal...The players must look up when this BOZO walks in the lockeroom and visions of clown's feet and seltzer bottles swirl around. As said before, were I Andrew Luck & knew I was headed to the Island Of Misfit Toys aka South Beach (yes, you too, Lebron) I would call a press conference toute suite! and declare myself Stanford's QB for 2012.

Meyer should not and would not go to the NFL. It's opposite of the direction he wishes to go in his life. Name recognition only will keep this rumor afloat for a spell, but it would be bad for all parties to hire him as a coach.
I love him as Florida's coach, but he's absolutely NOT an NFL coach.
Jeff Fisher is my chcocie for known prospects, Gruden a close second. I don't know enough hot-shot coordinators to mention those yet. I'm sure there will be some.

HEY ALF, GREAT LIST, BUT U LEFT OUT:SPIELMAN
J.J.,& THE MAIN CULPRIT WAYNE H. HE INSTRUCTED
J.J. TO SHOW DAN THE DOOR, & ALLOWED J.J.TO WALK, & LEAVE DAVE IN CHARGE. HE ALSO WAS RES
PONSIBLE FOR BRINGING IN PARCELLS. AND PLEASE
DO NOT FORGET RANDY MUELLER.

Sparano needs to be fired ASAP... he's from school of Bill Parcells, total looser and is not Dolphin.

I've been a fan for 41 years and know Shula the most winningest coach in NFL history. Dolphins need help from players and coaches from past.

what more can be stated that has not already been said? This loss can not be blamed on the players - the coaching staff stinks and made several idiotic calls to give Tebow his win. Urban Meyer is not ready to come back to coaching ( the college to pro thing rarely works out - Nick Saban for example) - I would like to see Cower take on the task but reading between the lines sounds like he wants to coach a team closer to home - Fisher would be a good pick but when you compare W/L Cower has them all beat. In my opinion it is going to take a big name coach for Luck to come here - sounds like he wants to join the draft but he will pull an Eli Manning - geez what college QB would want to come here? Landry Jones would be a great choice in my opinion a prototypical QB - I believe Cower has already turned Ross down during a covert meeting - if Dungy wanted to coach he would also be a great choice but I do not believe the fins will end up with Luck or Cower so second best or lower seems more likely. Just sayin - 0-16 this team will not win a game this season. Under the current coach - oh and get rid of that knucklehead line backer coach (brain fart Brian what ever)

Urban Meyer? So we're gonna be an option spread team next year??? That should be amusing.

Urban Meyer is going to be the next head coach at Ohio State. He already lives in OH. Luke Fickell is the stop gap there. That said, maybe the Fins should talk to Jim Tressell. What is he really doing for the Colts anyway?

YES, YES, YES !!!! SUCK FOR LUCK!!! AND AS FAR AS URBAN MEYER GOES NO, NO, NO !!!! We've tried this before with SABIN and Steve Spurrier was a complete flop in the NFL...FOR ME IT COWER OR GRUDEN!!!!!

Urban Myer will never coach pro football ever,in fact if he wants the Penn State job its his !
