In what is perhaps the least surprising move in the history of professional football, the New York Jets have reportedly fired offensive coordinator, Tony Sparano.
Fresh off a 6-10 campaign and boasting the 30th ranked passing game in the league, the Jets decided that one season of Sparano was more than enough.
When he initially arrived in New York, a lot of people promised that Sparano would be able to work his wildcat magic on Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow and the rest of the Jets’ otherwise unspectacular scoring attack. These folks chalked his failures in Miami up to bad personnel and worse management, and insisted that Sparano would thrive in a situation where could only focus on one thing.
So much for that.
What followed was pure, unfiltered disaster from start to finish. If you want to see Tony Sparano’s offense in a nutshell, here you go:
Norv Turner and Cam Cameron (because, why not?) are rumored to be possible replacements for Sparano.
