Well that went well :lol: I actually thought he would have made a good oc for the Jets. Glad I was wrong.

I want a new OC but I don't blame Tony for the mess of 2012.

We will see him on a beach somewhere with a topless Rex Ryan tattoo

Jeannette Sparano now will blame Rex like she did Ireland for Tony getting canned.

It wasn't that she blamed Ireland it was the way Ireland ran around with Ross looking for a new HC behind his back. Sparano and Ireland did have a good relationship prior to that.

When will we be hearing from Sparano's fan club here on Finheaven to tell us Sparano's getting a raw deal?

As many mistakes as the Jets' management has made in the past couple of years, at least they didn't repeat Ross' tremendous blunder and keep this joker around once his incompetence was revealed for all to see. Of course, hiring him in the first place . . . . :crazy:

I honestly don't see where Tony Sparano goes from here. Seriously.

I feel bad for the guy, but he put up some pretty terrible numbers in his past two seasons as OC/HC. He certainly doesn't deserve a HC or coordinator position in the NFL. Perhaps he goes back to being a line coach or goes back to College. Problem is, his OL's have been suspect as well.
Fact is, the debacle in NY wasn't entirely on him. It was an impossible situation. The offense wasn't that great to begin with, then injuries set in.

Having said that, he failed miserably. And i would like to think that people will notice that before hiring him for another gig.

To be fair he never really had a chance. he had a chance in Miami and ultimately failed, he never had a chance here.

I'm not surprised at all....Sparano can't get out of his own way.

I enjoy trash-talking with you, but the man was horrendous. The Jets are better off today than they were yesterday. I've never seen a coordinator completely sabotage himself the way Sparano did.

Considering that Rex is still there, that's like firing the auto detailer when the car's engine needs a valve job.

Good move by the Jets, Tony was out of his depth. But ultimately, all I can say is, "It's all Schotty's fault!"

Schotty did a good job helping to develop a young Drew Brees, but it takes more than good coaching to develop a young Buttfumbler.

Since he's an expert OL coach maybe he'll be hired in college somewhere to make the greatest OL ever.

As bad as Tony was for the Jets, had that organization not hyped up all this secret stuff they had planned with Tebow I don't think he'd have been fired.

Tony will probably end up in New Orleans since Sean Peyton is one of his best friends. He needs to get back to basics if he wants to ever be looked at as an OC again (he ain't getting another HC shot). Say what you will about our OL under Tony, but he was a decent OL coach for quite a few years. Get back to that, maybe actually attempt to learn a modern offense, and go from there.

Poor Tony. He was handed the keys to a pinto... and he drove it into a ravine.

Goodnight, sweet prince.

Different OCs, same problem, I wonder what the one constant has been.

Schottenheimer did a good job here but no OC would have succeeded this season w/ the healthy talent we had.

I don't think there has ever been a team that has fired it's GM, all the offensive coaching staff save the HC had the DC quit. And in todays presser Rex says he wants to change there offensive philosophy.

This year is going to be blast to watch...the jets are again a dumpster fire....

Hey nyjunk tell us how your new gm is going to fix this mess:lol2:

No OC has a chance when they're being asked to turn a crusty taco into prime rib.

I wouldn't read too much into the DC quitting and everyone knows rex runs the defense anyway.

we'll see what happens.

Why have a DC then? Does a team have to pay for a DC to be official?

Glad to see the jets are promoting within. Steady as she goes



"I've come up short, in my opinion, for four years," said Ryan, who will be hiring his third coordinator. "I don't think I've done a good a job as implementing who I am throughout this team. ... I don't think it necessarily has gotten through, from a schematic standpoint, to anything offensively.

"I've failed in that area," he said. "For whatever reason, it's hard to see that, but I think it's clear that's where I've come up short."

Ryan also is on the verge of changing defensive coordinators. Mike Pettine, whose contract is expiring, is out; he will interview Tuesday for the same position with the Buffalo Bills. Secondary coach Dennis Thurman is expected to be promoted to coordinator.

Longtime assistant special teams coach Ben Kotwica will replace the retiring coordinator Mike Westhoff, Ryan said.

Even when Ryan completes his staff, his future will remain a question. He has only two years remaining on his contract, meaning he'll be working for a new boss in a make-or-break season -- a daunting challenge on a team with so many holes.

Ryan said he's not concerned about the lame-duck perception.

Ryan also is capable of captivating the media, which he did last week during his getaway to the Bahamas, where he a photographer caught a never-before-seen tattoo  his half-naked wife wearing a Mark Sanchez jersey.

The coach confirmed that he got it nearly three years ago.

"I know what you're thinking: Obviously, if Sanchez doesn't play better, that number is going to change," he said, laughing. "I've been married 25 years and, in my eyes, my wife is the most beautiful woman in the world."
