I'm saying the issues last year, and during his 3 years in Miami were personnel related, that isn't his fault, that fault goes to the Einsteins that built the team.
Parcells missed a lot when building that Miami team in the last 3 years, and the same brain-dead GM is still there making moves that don't make sense.
Marshall is one player, he isn't Superman, and he had crap throwing him the ball. Henne couldn't put it together and then got hurt last year. Hell, the Raiders have 53 All pro's on the roster, and HOF coaches at every position on the staff, according to YOU, so what is the Raiders excuse?
The Jets have better talent on the OL overall than the Dolphins do, they also have OL'n that are much better in pass protection.
Sparano is a coach that has a lot qualities that will be great additions to this Jets team because they fit the mindset of the front office and the head coach. This isn't SPIN, this is FACT.
Sure there are question marks, all coaches have them, but I evaluate a coach based on how players buy into what the coach is selling them, and the Dolphin players all bought in, much like the players did under Rex, especially on the defensive side of the ball. The Jets had a situation last year where the players on offense had a catch 22, they had a head coach they loved the play for, but an offensive coordinator that did not run a smooth operation, and he lost his players. This was the #1 issue with the Jets last year, and by all accounts, Sparano is the perfect replacement to fix last year's issues.
Now how good is Sparano? I think there are some questions that need to be answered, but from a player standpoint, we have players like Pennington, one of the smarter QB's in the league at one time that was completely committed to Sparano, and even Brandon Marshall, as messed up as Marshall is, he always spoke very highly of Sparano, and we all know Marshall is not a player that gets along with just anybody or any coach.
And BTW, the Dolphins experienced a TON of adversity, the majority of the player quotes you'll read about Sparano was because of that adversity.
