[QUOTE=BamaJets;4469575]Jets have leaders as players, but they are quiet leaders - Harris, Mangold, DBrick, BT, even Revis (talkative lately, but not really in the Ray Lewis mold).
As for coaches, I know Rex can motivate them, but last season there seemed to be no coaches holding guys accountable. Sparano's disciplinary style and in your face attitude is what this team needs. I hope it works. A lot of times that complete 180 can work. I hope they all buy in to the style.[/QUOTE]
I agree that Sparano's in-your-face style of coaching is just what the offense needed, and I think it [U]will[/U] work. He will demand that every player give their maximum effort on [U]every play[/U]. That little edge will help not only the running game, but Sanchez and the passing game too.
[QUOTE=copernicus;4469669]The more I read and hear about Sparano the less skeptical and critical I am about the hiring.
Keller definitely saying all the right stuff.
Long way to go but definitely and good start[/QUOTE]
I feel the same way. Their were countless times last yr where you read quotes from players about how the O was "sloppy" in practice and other times where they sounded almost surprised when they had real crisp practice. There seemed to be real lack of accountability on O, frequent protection breakdowns, poorly run routes. I'm not expecting the offense to look like the packers or saints, but running the offense correctly and on point would be a nice start! Add in the youth, increased speed, and rex being more involved in the D again and we could have a real nice season ahead of us:yes:
[QUOTE=drsamuel84;4469772]One thing you have to give Schotty some credit for was pulling Holmes in that last game. It was obvious by Rex's response that was all Schotty's decision...Too little too late but at least he did it.[/QUOTE]
Really? He gets credit for pulling him in the last game of the year with 5 mins left? Quite the diciplinarian.
Anyway, there is usually a nice uptick in team play going from a "players coach" to a diciplinarian. We are in a sense doing that, albeit not the HC. However the accountabililty issue seems to me to be more offense only, so hopefully we will get the best of both worlds here.
[QUOTE=Joe W. Namath;4470060]Only running plays i believe. Haley was calling the passing plays.[/QUOTE]
Sparano called all the plays for Dallas in 2006 and only 3 teams scored more points and 4 had more yards. He called only runs in 2007 and the Cowboys scored the second most points and had the third most yards.
Good to hear... Sh!tty never seemed to do much motivating in game... Sparano will be different, which Sanchez needs to wipe the sourpuss look he often has sitting on the bench not looking at game shots...
