    I can agree with that. If Philbin does well, it'll ease the pain... Better justification? lol

    Kevin Burnett
    recalled that when the Dolphins started the year 0-6, Sparano told the team: “‘You know what? If you guys want to lose and be 0-16 and get me out of here, no problem. But guess what? I’m not going to be the only one gone, and that’s just the reality of this business.’”

    and the Jets think this guy is their savior? Wait til they get a few losses, Sparano will be talking like this once again.

    So glad we have Philbin now
    we won't be 0-6 and he won't be our HC.

    I dont think you'll be 0-6, either. But If the Tebow experiment fails, and you fail to make the playoffs, NY will be calling for Rex's head. And WHO do you think is going to get the first shot at coaching the Jets? Not rocket science...

    I cant tell you how many times I had to argue that the guy was a joke, not a motivator, and the players did not want to play for him. He was in way over his head. I keep bringing this up, but it was classic when Long laughed at him right in his face.

    I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious

    Wonder how many "ya knows," "at the end of the day's," and "uh uh uh's" went into that embarrassing diatribe.

    For self-preservation, players, when in the moment, really do need to be political.. but most of 'em aren't Vince Young or Antonio Cromartie-level functional morons; you would think as a player they'd prefer to follow the lead of someone whom they have reasonable confidence is smarter than they are.






    "Yep. Blow it up. This might the worst team I've ever seen constructed in my life.
    And then you throw in the terrible preparation and in-game coaching. There is no defense.
    But do it right. Fire everyone in the building. No survivors. , JiF Jetnation

    You will see Sparano as the head coach of the Jets at some point. Maybe not this year, and it may be shortlived, but its coming...

    You heard it here first, folks!

    His 3rd and 9 running back draws in the red zone WILL make you pull your hair out. Sparano is conservative on steroids.

    Not only that, but they gave him a freakin extension because the DB's feelings were hurt.

    Even better, his 3rd and 18 play action passes
