2011 Big Year for Sparano

 I decided to look up each Super Bowl winning coach to see how many seasons it took them to win the Super Bowl with that team. For coaches with multiple titles, i only used their first Super Bowl win. For coaches in the 1950's i only counted from super bowl 1 on(1967). If i made any errors feel free to post them, i used wikipedia to look up their resumes, so u get what u paid for lol. if u calculate the average, it comes out to roughly 4 seasons and this will be Tony Sparano's 4th yr, we have the defense, the coaching staff now has an emphasis to "open it up" and their backs to the wall. Maybe this is the year. Next yr we play the NFC East and AFC West along with the Browns and Texans, thats 6 games against playoff teams from this yr but only the jets and pats have made it passed round 1 of the playoffs, seems like a reasonable schedule unlike this past season where we played 8 games against playoff teams with all teams still in the playoffs after round 1. Anyway with the exception of maybe Madden,Cowher most coaches won it all fairly early so i expect big things from Sparano and the Phins!
