If you want to be "Ground and Pound" you stick Smith in as tackle, put Hilliard in as FB, put Tebow in at QB, and stick Greene behind Hilliard. Have Keller or Reuland ran a quick slant across and that gives you the ability to PA to him, slam Greene or Hilliard up the middle, or have Tebow slam it up himself or try to break the edge behind a motioning Smith.
This is THE SINGLE THING THEY HAVE ALMOST THE IDEAL ROSTER FOR.
Yet they don't run it.......
so when do the fire soprano thread start? and who do we want to replace him?? lol...p.s. will never happen unless sanchez is gone also..cant possibly see him w another coordinator?? no??
I agree with you on Sparano, I think he's doing more with less more quickly than Shoddy. People forget that Shoddy had 6 years to implement his offense.
This is Sparanos 1st game with a full set of players.
Scotty did that crap all the time in short yardage. I would scream at the TV, I can understand passing, but if you are going to do it, at least do it from under center so the D has to think run, and run play action.
And overall, I think Sparano has done a yeoman's effort with all the injuries both in the preseason and now. Being that we have Tebow (for better or worse), I'd like to see him a bit more and a bit more creativity, but that's not a major issue for me.
Shameful way to go out. Jets left yardage and points on the field, which would have won the game. Totally inexplicable.
They run it there its a touchdown, at worst they get the 1st and have another 3 tries to get the touchdown. That right there Could have been the game
i understand all the critisism of this playcall but, Sparano is a HUGE upgrade compared to schotty. Last season we didn't attempt 1 single long ball vs Pats. Against James Ihedigbo??? Sparano ain't gonna be the best but, I think his gameplanning and play designs are at least up to par with NFL standards. Play design and gameplanning is a BIG reason Schotty had Sanchez suckin.
IMO, Schotty sucked because he failed to do anything about the OL and Bill Callahan.
Schotty lacked the Napa know-how needed to diagnose and fix the broken parts.
The plays were there to be made. We left a ton of yards and points on the field because we didn't execute the small things.
If Brick did as much as touch Ike Taylor on 3rd & 17 and not stand around like a dumbfuk, the Jets go to Arlington ... Super Bowl XLV.
Not a perfect game in terms of a few play calls I disagreed with, but it's hard to dispute that Sparano is a good playcaller and coach on the sidelineOne reason for the optimism is that while the Jets couldn’t keep Tom Brady in check when it counted, yielding a pair of 54-yard drives to Stephen Gostkowski field goals to pull the game out, they showed for the first time that, as imperfect as the offense sometimes was, it finally outgained the Patriots. The final tally was 403 yards to 381. Not a wide margin, yet perhaps significant since the Patriots had outgained the Jets in 17 of the previous 18 games in the series, by an average of 89 yards a game.
Additionally, the Jets cleared 400 yards of offense for the first time under coordinator Tony Sparano, in fact for the first time in 20 games since they last visited that figure at Oakland in last year’s Game 3. And we’re not sure what this says about reaching 400 in this day of NFL football, but the last time the Jets gained 400 against the Patriots was in the bad old year of 1996, when they put up 422 yards.
