Rex Ryan Defends Jets Beleaguered Offensive Coordinator Tony Sparano
Despite the Jets offense being ranked 30th in the NFL, coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano both said they see signs of improvement.
The Jets failed to score an offensive touchdown in Seattle last week and have scored six touchdowns total in seven of their nine games. Even with those struggles, Ryan said he is happy with the job Sparano has done in his first season as offensive coordinator.
“I’m not happy with our results, but to say I’m going to pin that on Tony, there’s no way,” Ryan said. “I see how he works. ... There’s a burning desire [to get better]. Sometimes, we’ll have what looks like is going to be a big play and the execution is just a little bit off.”
Sparano said the Jets have improved in running the ball, protecting the quarterback and in short-yardage and goal-line situations, in particular.
The Jets face Sparano’s predecessor this week, Brian Schottenheimer, who holds the same position with the Rams.
