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
Sparano was clearly in-over his head, being hired as a head coach when he had no kind of experience of any significance in major prior coaching roles. When I originally heard of the hiring in 2008, no exaggerration. Im not gonna censor myself......
UUUhhh....it kinda worked....'cause we started winning....
I keep seeing people post that "last-half-year" logic on this forum ... football just seems to pass them by & they get all caught up in fandom explanations!!
When I die I want to hire the Miami Dolphin's to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time.
Round 1: DeVante Parker (WR):
Speed, size/height, and efficient WR.
Round 2: Denzel Perryman (I-LB):
Behind Suh, quality I-LB.
Round 4: Ali Marpet (Guard)
Quality late round starting Guard, very smart, and tough.
Round 5: Jalen Collins (CB)
Possible quality CB w/ work.
Round 5: Jamil Douglas (Guard/Center/Tackle)
Guard, can also play center and tackle.
Round 6: Malcolm Brown (RB)
Consistent short yardage powerback.
Sparano had some good qualities but to be fair mostly bad qualities. Lack of taking chances, developing players, intelligence, learning from your mistakes, probably a lack of authority too. Really still think Ireland instigated going after Harbaugh last off season because he knew what a crap coach Sparano was.
I don't expect the Jets to be 0-6 either, but even so, if anyone knows how Sparano works, he always makes sure you win meaningless games, bad enough to not make the playoffs but insures your franchise from a Top pick. Sparano's teams are the ultimate treadmill teams.
