Despite the Dolphins’ 0-4 start, coach Tony Sparano is safe, not only to make it through the upcoming bye week, but will also lead the team into its next game on Oct. 17 against the Jets, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. The newspaper, citing a high-ranking NFL source, would not speculate about Sparano’s future beyond the trip to play the Jets.
“People are going to speculate,” Dolphins linebacker Jason Taylor said. “It’s out of our hands. It’s not something we have control over. We obviously hope it doesn’t happen. But people are going to have opinions, especially with a week off. They’re going to have two weeks to come up with all these scenarios of things that should happen and this and that.”
Sparano, whose Dolphins are on an NFL-worst seven-game losing streak dating back to last season, has led the Dolphins to three straight victories over the Jets at the Meadowlands.
