Stability offers the Dolphins ... stability but no stars yet

ESPN is reporting the New York Jets are soon going to fire offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, the former Dolphins coach fired last year from Miami. The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Tom Heckert, formerly of the Miami Dolphins, will be fired on Monday.

The Chiefs will have changes and are looking for a starting QB. The Bills are looking for a starting QB. The Cardinals are looking for a starting QB. The Eagles will have change and are getting rid of starting quarterback Michael Vick.

But the Dolphins will remain stable at general manager, coach and starting quarterback. That is a state of affairs, which I looked at and found hasn't been the case for the Dolphins at all since 2003. That's 10 seasons.

But ...

What does that tell us? Seriously.

The Dolphins have stability. But do they have a star coach? A star GM? A star quarterback?

We may have opinions about where those three men are going but in my column today I give you an honest assessment of where those men are now. I also offer where those men seem headed. Please check out the column.

Later today, we'll have a live blog of the Patriots and Dolphins game.

Randy Starks will play. Davone Bess will not. Koa Misi is expected back.

Talk to you later.

There are changes coming throughout the NFL
