Sparano is going to be a really good assistant coach/coordinator for them - I really have no doubt about that.
As the captain of the ship, he was not good enough, his decision making was obviously very questionable. But as a support guy how could he not be a good addition? Players love him. He's been around the game a very long time at every level so he obviously knows the game well. The pressure as always will be on big mouth Rex Ryan, but Sparano is going to thrive under the radar working with JUST the players and not having to answer for mistakes.

It really sucks losing a title game or any time in the playoffs I had a great time watching my team make those runs, it was much more fun than missing the playoffs. You have to enjoy the journey sometimes.
Their OL is probably better suited to pass blocking than run blocking, and Shonn Greene strikes fear into nobody.

Early in the year no doubt they passes a ton b/c they were struggling to run and were down early in games, later in the year we ran it pretty effectively.
you can use team YPC but Greene had 253 carries and averaged 4.2, the rest of the RBs carried it a combined 144 times. We need another back to complimet him whether mcknight is ready, Powell is ready or we need to draft someone but Greene is a quality back.
The problem with that scenario is that your team couldn't run when they wanted to even late in the season. Your OL is better suited to pass blocking rather than run blocking, especially since you have a strong LT and a very weak RT (most teams run to the right side). Maybe Sparano can walk on water as an OC.
