guys this is not going to go off into yet another Nyjunc vs finheaven thread.
I can remember when Tony said this. There was an article covering the losing streak and the angle of the story was how Tony was keeping the team together and motivated by telling them that no one was going to do them any favors. Then they dropped that quote in there.
I can distinctly remember thinking that it was a pretty ****ty way to keep everyone's spirits high, and sounded to me like Tony was at his breaking point, composure-wise.
I guess we'll see how the transition from "Jersey-guy" Sporano to "Professor" Philbin affects this team.

I'm not a Sparano hater, he did the best he could under the situation. Last season was impossible, he was bum funked months before the season started. IMO, this was why our coaches and players were not as ready as others, Sparano and company was not sure if they was going to be here week to week. I have no idea what input Tony had with drafting. I doubt he was allowed to do much shopping.......
As far as with the Jets, he comes replacing someone that all love to hate. They love Sparano simply for that. And his job is to make their offense "simpler". How hard is it to make something easier?
Plus he has Rex Ryan in his corner in NY. While in Miami, Tony had no one who really supported him and would go to bat for them.
We've had some really bad ones as of late, but nothing....NOTHING will ever beat "Fail Forward Fast".
What a #$%&ing idiot!!!! You should did, Cam.
