Thread: Baldinger thinks Sparano offense a joke!

    I don't see how anyone could be optimistic about this offense until they prove they can get it done on the field.
    +1, (I think he does have experience calling games but otherwise I'm with you,) there are never sure things in Jet land

    I also choose to believe that Sanchez will improve significantly this year. Sure, I might be wrong. But those unhappy souls who choose to believe that he'll continue to be an inconsistent turnover machine might be wrong, too.
    +1, nothing wrong with hoping things will turn out well

    The only reason I like Sparano is that he is a pitt bull on the field. If you make a mistake, run a play wrong, run the wrong route he's going to chew your ass out. Sometimes that's all it takes.

    There is an old saying I learned in the military (USAF) "An army of sheep led by a lion will defeat an army of lions led by a sheep". Sparano is a lion. I thought the Dolphins were going in the tank last year and they did the opposite and I have respect for Sparano for that. Don't under estimate how that virtue carries down to play on the field. I feel I am in the minority here, but I think with the proper preparation, game planning, and attitude there IS enough talent on this offense to at least be above average. That would be all we need with the way the defense is shaping up.

    but the passing plays were designed by payton, Sparano made the calls. I never said he didnt. and ok one of the 8 dolphin offensive coaches went with him. sorry

    but please dont tell me you rather have Sparono with one year of exp in calling plays over Payton.

    I agree with your post!!

    BTW, with a name like Rumrunner, I guess you are a fan of the Kennedys. LOL

    His teams start out slow - from sucky to average - so Week One against Buffalo will be huge for us, followed by four tough games.

    Actually, 7 of our first 8 will be challenging.

    If we ride the storm to 4-4, our chances in the second half look pretty good.
    Yes I agree and I am glad the tougher games are early in the season. Sporano should be emphasizing ball control and stability on offense while minimizing turnovers and not worrying about the big plays. Let the D do their swarming and hitting and let ST's do their thing and the Jets might be able to stay in the thick of things at the mid point of the season.

    I'll wait till the preseason games to pass judgement. Last year the offense was absolute garbage during the preseason which translated being absolute garbage during the regular season. Hopefully the ball is in the runningbacks hands more than Sanchez's this year.

    I don't see how Sparano's track record as a HC is directly related to our success with him as OC.

    A lot of misinformation in this thread.

    Payton became HC of the Saints in 2006.

    Todd Haley designed the passing game in Dallas in 2006.

    But Sparano did the game-day play-calling.

    1. He's the same Tony Sparano

    2. It's all we have to go by since he's never been a full-fledged OC

    3. He's still coaching half the team

    4. I didn't draw any conclusions

    When Penny went from us to Miami he significantly cut down on his turnovers. Hopefully the same happens for Sanchez under Sparano.

    Yes you did.

    You said "his teams" start out slowly and that we'd be lucky to start out 4-4.

    This isn't "his team."

    And a "team" is made up of 3 units.
