Oh for ****'s sake.  This better be some sort of twisted early April Fools joke.

 

The junior version of the only OC worse than Schitty to go along with the most uncoordinated living creature to ever step foot onto a football field.  Oh joy.

He was already with the team as a coaching intern.  The offensive assistant category really shouldn't make or break the season.  :)

How often do you think Eric Smith will fall down on the way to meetings and practice?

Actually it wouldn't surprise me if Smith is good in this role.  Clearly he didn't stick around because of Polamalu-level talent.

The New York Jets have added Tony Sparano Jr. as an offensive assistant and named Eric Smith as a seasonal intern.  The announcement was just made by Eric Allen on Twitter.

Sparano Jr. was brought in by his father as a coaching intern, but he stayed with the organization after his Dad was fired.  Here is the story from last year when Sparano Jr. was originally retained.

When Rex Ryan fired Tony Sparano as offensive coordinator in January, he knew he would have to have an uncomfortable conversation — not with Sparano, but with his son, Tony Sparano Jr.

Sparano Jr. had served under his father with the 2012 Jets as a coaching intern. Now, Ryan was firing Sparano Sr., but he wanted Sparano Jr. to stay with the Jets.

“I’m not going to lie, there was some awkwardness,” Ryan said recently, “but I knew I wanted to keep him.”

The conversation was a success, and Sparano Jr. stayed with the Jets despite his father’s dismissal. The 26-year-old is one of the few reminders around the 2013 Jets of his father’s one year as the team’s offensive coordinator.

Here is a thread on Tony Sparano Jr. from the JetNation forums.

The reason Eric Smith got on the field in the first place, was that the coaching staff considered it like putting a coach on the field. He wasn't great physically, but this is a sensible transition for him. I wish him the best.

 

As for Sparano Jr., good for him. Gotta work your way up.

Take a step back. These are assistant and intern positions... you sound like a complete tit acting as if the fate of this organization hangs in the balance now.

Dumbo Jr. is still with the Jets ?  Rex likes him ?

 

Who cares ?  Dumbo carries footballs and moves Rex's truck when his food delivery

convoy arrives.  Rex wants to win a championship with a terrible OC, so he can say

it was defensive team.  Dumbo Jr, is the perfect OC for Rex, good thing Geno can run

both for long yardage and goal line, with the twin Dumbos, he will need to.

Yeah, that was a little dramatic.

Btw Smith was a good athlete by the combine/pro day stuff, he just wasn't excessively good at football. We've heard for a long time that hes smart and knew his role even if he was mediocre at best executing it. How often do good players make good coaches anyway?

I'm actually liking this little influx of young coaching talent lately.

Agreed. There's never anything wrong with developing young coaches, the same way you would young players.

No matter how many times you say Dumbo, it's not gonna stick.

Nah, NBA style flops are now a viable tactic for drawing penalties.  Smith is perfect.

Thanks for the advice, but I promise you, I really couldn't give less of a sh*t and frankly didn't expect anyone else to take it particularly seriously.  It was just random jabs at a couple of nobodies, I figured you of all people would get that.  Sorry it got you so worked up.

Exactly. Tackling was the one thing he did well. He used to lay people out.
