RIP Coach Sparano

Postby FreddieB25 » Sun Jul 22, 2018 4:08 pm

He died today at 56 yrs old. He was the fire we needed when we were 0-9 or 0-10 in 2014 when Dennis Allen was let go. We beat the Chiefs on TNF under Sparano's tutelage for our first win that season. His fire and Del Rio's lack of maybe should've of been he being retained in 2015 instead of Del Rio being brought in. Those teams needed that like they need Gruden's fire now. Was never a big fan of docile players coaches like JDR, Norv Turner and others.

Del Rio was a piker, players coach and wasn't committed to the job like great coaches who get the most out of their rosters and hold players accountable. Not to say Sparano would of had us deep in the postseason or a Lombardi trophy although he had the fire and tenacity to not let these guys rest on their laurels. He wouldn't have had a piece of garbage like Norton jr to deal with either. Gruden is the right man at the right time imo. Too bad he has another piece of shit to coexist with and thats King kong and his calculator, Reggie.

Exactly! The fuckin media is pathetic. Trying to say Gruden hasn’t had contact with Mack. Gruden said it’s bullshit he has talked to him. Media trying to create a distraction where there isn’t one. The distraction is from Reggie again. Who cares if Gruden talked to Mack, where is Reggie’s Chunky peanut buttered head at? Yea........you know.......I’s trying to low ball brotha Khalil like I do’s everybody that is good & can play. But he’ll give Penn & Sean Smith big contracts

I think their waiting on what kind of contract Aaron Donald DLinemen with the Rams gets is all I can think as to why Mack's contract is taking so long.

I figure the same, but it sounds like Donald is willing to sit out for as long as it takes. Fuck both of them... sit on the bench and rot!

Mack will be signed before week 1 and most likely in the coming weeks in my opinion.

As long as we continue to insist on playing Mack at DE - where we lose half his dominance, IMO, then I don't particularly think his absence hurts us too badly.

If he was playing OLB, that would be a different story.

Chucky’s back. Unfortunately, so is Reggie. And Olson. HOW do these people continue to survive their own abject failure??

Guenther isn't a retard like Norton jr. He'll use Mack as a wind up toy to get max results out of him and the defense.
