    Parcells was the best thing that ever happened to this franchise. That said, he also recommended Al Groh and Terry Bradway. He is far from infallible.

    ya know, he has nothing nice to say about this team. I used to love him, but now I am sick of him. Was " I don't care about the team struggling" a freudian slip. he is a jealous f*#k.

    Hay Broadway Joe, go have a few drinks and hit on some more reporters.

    Well that answers the question. Great hire Jets. If that idiot Namath doesn't like it, they did well.

    1) Namath wears the ring, he might as well have made it. Respect.

    2) More importantly, Namath was sounding an alarm about 2011 - and was on point - before any other public figure was.

    Namath had said he was alarmed by the way the Jets lost to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday afternoon, and questioned Ryan's team's preparation during a Monday interview on ESPN 1050's "The Michael Kay Show."

    "It wasn't disheartening so to speak," Broadway Joe said of the Jets' 34-24 setback in Oakland on Sunday, their first loss of the season. "It's rather alarming is the way I'm looking at it.

    "It starts at the top. Coach Rex Ryan I think has been doing a great job getting the team to two (AFC) Championship Games. But if there's one thing about the athlete, if you keep telling him how good he is, he's going to start believing it, to the point that he may not be preparing not quite the way he should. He may be losing some respect for the other team."


    How true were those words? And spoken after the Jets had only lost a single game.

    I haven't noticed any threads saying "maybe we should have heeded Joe Namath" ... because what's he ever done for the franchise anyway?

    3) Nailed Kolber. Joe eventually claimed the prize. He told me this in confidence, I'd appreciate it if this info did not leave this thread.
    Gotta say I agree. Joe was pretty spot on about this season.

    And I can't figure out why I should just love Sprano? I thought he was a bit of a dope, and was always happy to see him on miami's sideline messing things up.

    Complete agreement.

    +1

    No more lining up the fullback at receiver only to have him run to his normal spot on every play

    No more BS constant motion to the point where Sanchez has to make sure his own guys are in place then being able to read the defense

    No more having the lineman wait for days in their stances because of all the motion instead of getting set and firing off the line

    having an overly complex scheme only overloads the players, having a "simple" offense and running it efficiently allows the players to just play and not confuse themselves

    To expand on this, another big flaw with the Schotty offense, we would run the playclock down to 4 seconds and under on pretty much every play, so think how easy that is for pass rushers knowing every time when the ball would be snapped to fire off the ball. Hopefully we will be mixing up when the ball is snapped under Sparano and co.

    JOE NAMATH...PLEASE SHUT UP!

    (your opinion does not matter THIS decade. I don't give a crap that you won a SB a billion years ago. that doesn't give you the right to talk sh-t about the JETS)



    That is all.

    And what the hell does it mean that the practices were "ordinary"? What was he expecting to see.... monkeys flying out of player's buts?

    BTW, this is an AWESOME post.


    Except for the "slightly below average" part.

    fantastic point

    I really like the hiring of Sparano. I finally know that the identity of the offense is going to be ground oriented every week and not change week to week like a schizophrenic Vietnam war veteran (no disrespect to all the men in women who served our country in that war)

    I think this mentality is about, oh, a few decades late. Good luck trying to win a championship in today's NFL where through rule changes give precedence to the offense over the defense. Most teams have had head coaches smart enough to figure this out and therefore go with an all out passing attack that wins games and divisions. We don't.
    teams like the Saints, Packers, Patriots.

    No disrespect ... But c'mon ... Coulda said Norman Bates or something.

Until, I have two years of stomach ulcers to deal with. You guys drink the kool-aide, I figured the secret ingrediant out this year with its bitter taste: it is called bull$hit.
    Let's rush out the most successful coach in Jets history. Real smart. Have you made it to high school yet or are you new to the Jets?

    Sparano is well-respected around the league, supposed to be a no nonsense guy, maybe just what the team needs and a good complement to Rex. We didn't just bring him here to call plays.

    Times have changed, Mr. Namath.

    What he has in his finger most don't have in total. I would bet on him before you

    Sparano is highly thought of by Parcells, Payton, and Coughlin. Payton wanted him as his OC but BP blocked the move

    The offensive playbook might be "simpler" but will be more effective
