    The New York Jets finally did what everyone had pretty much expected them to do, as they fired offensive coordinator Tony Sparano after just one year on the job. Sparano was brought in to replace Brian Schottenheimer but it didn't take long for everyone to realize that the Sparano experiment was a failure. Sparano, whose offense ranked 30th in the league, never found a way to use QB Tim Tebow whom the Jets supposedly acquired to run the wildcat.

    Well, the good thing is it's finally over, the Jets' horrible season that is. The Gang Green lost to the Buffalo Bills, 28-9, to finish the season 6-10, their first losing season under Rex Ryan. Once again QB Mark Sanchez, who started in place of injured QB Greg McElroy, struggled immensely, throwing his signature pick six and also losing a fumble.

    According to a CBS Sports report, the New York Jets will most likely fire GM Mike Tannenbaum on Monday right after the season finale against the Buffalo Bills. Tannenbaum, who joined the Jets in 1997 as director of player contract negotiations, was promoted to general manager in 2006, replacing Terry Bradway who has remained with the team as a senior personnel executive. The Gang Green have reached the playoffs in only three of seven Tannenbaum's seasons as GM.

    Well, just when you thought it could not get any worse, just when you thought it could not get any uglier, the Same Old Jets found a new way to embarrass themselves on the national stage. Rex Ryan's team had to win the remaining three games and get some help from other teams to earn a playoff berth, which they never deserved to begin with, but last night's abysmal showing ended all hopes they might have had to make it to the postseason.

    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.
