    Dolphins: Wannstedt resigns
    The News
    Dave Wannstedt has reportedly resigned as head coach of the Dolphins. Reports from WSVN Channel 7 in Miami indicate that Wannstedt handed in his resignation tonight. After Sunday's last-second loss to the Cardinals, Wannstedt told the Sun-Sentinel, "I am so worn out right now, to be honest with you. Just drained from the game, and putting everything we had into the game. It's never been as hard to win a game." No interim coach has been named.
    Our View
    Wannstedt sounded like a beaten man after the devastating loss to the Cardinals, so his resignation doesn't surprise us. It was really just a matter of when, not if, Wannstedt was going to step down. It's unclear who would take over for Wannstedt for the remainder of the season, but the Sun-Sentinel indicated two candidates could be quarterbacks coach Marc Trestman and assistant Jim Bates. Trestman would reportedly be the choice of the players because he would likely change the team's philosophy. From a fantasy standpoint, a change to a less conservative game plan would certainly be a step in the right direction, but this team simply doesn't have the offensive personnel to suddenly become a productive unit. We'll keep you updated on this situation as we learn more.

    nice...and they replace him with a guy who's last HC position was in the USFL. This is truly the season from hell.

    Can't say I'm at all surprised. Being dominated by the Jets and losing a tough one to Arizona was probably the last straw of this train wreck of a season for Miami. If Wanny wasn't going to resign, the fans were probably going to make sure to ''make it look like an accident'', if you know what I mean.

    Wanny will have another job by the end of the week. My local McDonalds is looking for another cashier.
