Dolphins coach Tony Sparano is unlikely to be replaced this week, according to a source. Monday night's loss to the Jets was especially harmful to Sparano's tenure. His team lost in horrible fashion after a bye week, and against a team that had lost three in a row. "Tonight was brutal," a club source told Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. That is bad for coach because owner Stephen Ross, who last week gave him something of a midseason vote of confidence, was apparently very, very disappointed, and the disappointment was augmented by the fact Ross sees it as something of another home loss because New York is his home. "It is fair to say that the fuse is burning," the source told Salguero. However, the fact this is a short week, with the Dolphins returning to the field on Sunday only five days from now, makes a change significantly less likely, the source said.
