Wayne Hunter comes across as such a likeable guy. Watching this video, I like how he takes total accountability for his play. He didn’t make any excuses by blaming anyone else. What really got my attention was when he said that he must get out of that Tight End Mentality, which was playing all out 1 play and then taking off (or going out) for 5. He hit the nail on the head and that’s what it seemed like. I also agree with the fact that his slow start put some extra pressure on him, but when I was looking at some plays with him, I agree with him when he did have some great games. His focus for 2012: Play consistent football.
I love it. He’s going to bounce back and mark my words, it’s going to be night and day this year. I’m rooting for you Wayne!
Hit 3: I Don’t Like this Dude!
Just before midnight on Oct. 12, 2009, Rex Ryanshook Sparano’s hand, turned to Jets vice president of security Steve Yarnell and expressed his feelings about the Dolphins’ then- head coach: “I don’t like this dude.” – Read More
“I was pissed,” Ryan remembered. “I’m like, ‘I’m going to kick that dude’s ass next time.’”
He's My Guy!
Ryan’s respect and appreciation for Sparano grew that night. When the Dolphins fired Sparano after Week 14 last season, the Jets head coach knew that he’d be lucky to have him on his staff. When the team parted ways with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer after the season, Sparano was the only external candidate Ryan considered for the job. “After he became available,” Ryan admitted, “I’m like, ‘Oh, hell, yeah… that’s my guy.”
I always feel the way Rex does when a coach or player is not on the Jets. Once he plays for MY team, then I support them.
