    To think that Sparano's offensive scheme or situational play calling will be any kind of an upgrade over Brian Schottenheimer is asinine.

    It'll take nothing short of a guru to get Sanchez over the hump from being the run of the mill, ordinary, nothing spectacular, wildly inconsistent and average quarterback to, well...the opposite.

    Let's face it, most NFL teams can't operate in success with a conundrum at quarterback. With Sparano, it is a formula for disaster. Exhibit A: these Miami Dolphins. The only thing that separates Chad Henne and Sanchez is the clutch factor of big games. Sparano failed with Henne and I can almost guarantee that Sanchez won't be any different.

    The Dolphins are like a Bob Dylan of the NFL...Times they are a changin'.

    The Jets on the other hand are like a Tom Petty...freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee falllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllin

    Maybe if Tony Moron-o decided to not go for a field goal inside the Red Zone from time to time, some of us might still have some good feelings for him. Hope you take the Jets down with you Tony.

    I'll always remember Sparano for the decision to not try a hail mary because he was worried about someone intercepting the pass and running it back for a TD

    Sparano is a HUGE NFL FAIL & it shows every day ... yet folks are still defending him here ... figures!!

    I was estatic when he joined the Jets (Every strategic move Rex makes fails) ... if Meatball gets stuck upstairs & his actions hidden ... I'll just cry!! That's Entertainment on the Jets!! That's Tragedy on my Dolphins!!

    What is sad is that we go through this every few years. Coach gets fired, quits, retires, etc... and he sucks. But this new guy is our savior...until we lose. Repeat the process. Let's win some football games before we go talking sh--.

    All he did by saying that is confirming to his team what most of us fans already knew. He can't coach.

    I'm in ... nothing fancy, nothing big ... just solid football. Play hard & give a good showing every game ... all I ask is finish above .500 every year ... then build on that.

    No collapse or embarassment!!

    Uh with this logic Miami should have hired Mike Nolan when they fired Sparano....
