    The New York Jets announced that they have hired Tony Sparano as their new offensive coordinator to replace Brian Schottenheimer who left the Gang Green last night. Sparano, who previously served as head coach of the Miami Dolphins, was instrumental in turning a 1-15 Dolphins into an 11-5 team in just one year. His next three seasons weren't as successful though as Miami failed to make the playoffs eventually leading to Sparano's dismissal.

    Before the 2011 Jets ride off into the sunset, with their oversized hero Coach Ryan vaulted high on their shoulder — the same coach who will ironically claim to carry the team’s future on his own shoulders —allow me to speak for all of the wounded he has left on the field.

    Buddy Ryan, by all accounts, was a man of action more than a man of words. This is illustrated best when you look at his military service. At the age of 18, Buddy was given a field promotion to Master Sergeant in the US Army’s 45th Infantry during the height of the Korean War. If stories can be believed, he spent much of that time punching his own soldiers in their peach fuzz-covered faces when their courage faltered and they became a danger to the soldiers with whom they shared foxholes. They were putting Buddy’s men in harm’s way, and he was finding any way he could to get them to keep fighting.

    Jets Fall In Miami, Miss Playoffs

    This was another must win, although the Jets would not have made the playoffs anyway if they had won, but for the third straight week the Gang Green simply forgot to show up, losing to Miami, 19-17. As the final seconds of the Jets' disappointing season were ticking off the clock, WR Santonio Holmes was sitting on the bench after being taken out of the game by the Jets' coaching staff. This was a fitting end to this disastrous season that started with Super Bowl promises and ended with a 3-game losing streak and reported locker room turmoil afterwards.
