Can Alex Smith do the unthinkable and lead the Niners to the Super Bowl? Championship round preview.

Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano's job is safe for the time being, despite the team dropping to 0-6 with an 18-15 overtime loss to Denver Sunday, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported, citing a source.

The source said Sparano was "unlikely" to be fired in the short-term but could not guarantee he would last out the season.

The pressure has been mounting on Sparano, with the Dolphins riding a league-worst nine-game losing streak dating back to last season.

Following Sunday's loss, Dolphins owner Steve Ross was seen on the sideline engaged in an animated conversation with former Florida coach Urban Meyer, sparking speculation he could be a part of the team's future plans.

The Sun Sentinel reported, however, that he was simply attending the game as part of a Florida reunion of the 2007 championship team.
