    OPINION Sparano To Jets "Made You Throw Up In Your Mouth"- Trent Dilfer

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...d-mind-in-2012

    Some harsh words about our former head coach.

    I was interested to get your takes on this.

    Here is mine:

    Sparano took a 1-15 team and led them to an AFC East Championship. Given, there was no Brady that year, but that still doesn't kill the fact that he did it. Chad Pennington was not the same Chad in '09, which was a huge reason for our downfall (and until this year we never had a TRUE #1 QB). The team simply wasn't as good, and Ireland and Ross did very little to help Tony out. The team finished 7-9 each of the following seasons. Black and White answer is to blame the coach, and maybe some of it was his fault, but certainly not all of it. I believe that had the team really tried to build off of the '08 run, they would have seen more success under Sparano (not that I mind him gone, I like Philbin more).

    The Jets hired a guy who had experience in the division and had coached one of their biggest rivals. He knew the wildcat better than anyone, which is what made the Jets successful in the years they went to the AFC Championship. You can't blame them for wanting to get back to that style of play.

    Is Tony a great coach? No. Is Tony an awful coach? I don't believe so. I feel the comment is a tad bit harsh. You are punching a guy in the pants over two and a half poor seasons, in which he had little talent due to (what seemed like) a clueless GM, and an owner who couldn't care less. All of this after leading a big comeback year. I'm not looking to live in the past, nor am I saying that 1 year forgives all of the losing, but I certainly don't believe it was ALL Tony's fault. You want to place the blame somewhere, let it fall on Mark buttfumble alone. This guy throws the ball to no one, and hopes it falls incomplete. He constantly makes poor calls on the field, and has lost control of the locker room because of it.

    What do you all think about this comment towards our former coach?

    Not to defend Sparano, but when your QB is buttfumble your top TE is Cumberland, and your top receiver is Jeremy Kerley and your RB is Shonn Greene, chances are your not going to be able to do anything on offense no matter what you call

    Sparano let Henning horribly mismanage our offense over and over again and then just threw the players under the bus for "not executing" and did an absolute **** job of developing players.

    So the Jets decide to hire him as their offensive coordinator.

    I was on the floor laughing the first time I heard that.



    Edit: Don't get me wrong, buttfumble sucks. He's worse than Henne. I can say that objectively now since we've seen Henne under Sparano and we've seen buttfumble under Sparano! buttfumble and Sparano was just a perfect combination for the Jets to bring together to make rival AFC East fans rejoice.

    Tony and Parcells should thank Chad Pennington for being money all year in 08. I felt for Tony at times, but after the win in Miami and Tony thumping his chest after a **** offensive performance. **** him and Jeanette. For the record, Tony should have been fired at the end of the 2010 season.

    He's probably a good offensive line coach but he was promoted far past his level of competence.

    He was a BAD head coach. Period.
    I'm here to tell the truth about top secret Air Force project BAR STOOL. Gamma ray radiation from the particle accelerator under Joe Robbie Stadium is real! Get out while you can! This bad football team is just a front for something far more sinister!
