    You may be right but I doubt the players would have fought as hard as they did each game if they lost respect for Sparano. It would have been easy for the players to "mail it in" (similar to the way it appeared in Indianapolis) if the players lost respect for the head coach. I'm sure there were some players who tuned him out but the team started playing with a swagger they didn't earlier in the season and a lot of that has to do with the Sparano. I don't know, maybe it also has something to do with the changes Sparano made after those comments, like letting the players sleep in later, easing up on the practices and letting the players police themselves that caused the team to play better.

    I do agree with you on the way Sparano coached the game had a lot to do with him being fired.

    Hey guys it's like the BCS! The Jets haven't won a superbowl and haven't even been to one in... how long?... but HEY they were like the 5th best team one year (not really) and the 6th best team another year.

    It's what you always do. You give credit but then deflect from it in the same sentence. The Giants SB win trumps anything the Jets did. Yeah the Jets went further in 2 seasons than the Giants did but the Giants actually got to and won the SB when the Jets didn't make the playoffs.

    We all know this. We also all know where this thread is headed.

    What isn't a fact about the following statement:

    The Jets were better than the Giants in 2 of the last 3 seasons? That's an indisputable FACT, I'm sorry it bothers you guys so much. It's sad how you guys have to lacth on to another team to try and make us look bad b/c your team has been so horrible.
