Sparano is having to do everything? OL coach, playcaller, O Coordinator, TE coach?

    Does it bug anyone but me that Sparano, on gamedays, is:

    1. Trying to make adjustments as sidelines coach for our spare-to-fair OL.

    2. Mentor/advisor to first year TE coach (first year as NFL coach) Fred Kitchens.

    3. Oh yeah, he calls the plays too. He did against Jacksonville, accd. to Bledsoe.

    4. And maybe even during the week, is the de facto offensive coordinator. How does the man sleep, more importantly how can he do each job well???

    Matt Mosely worried about this even a month ago, here's from his blog:

    "Parcells said last week that Tony Sparano, who had at least three job titles at last count, probably will call the running plays and some of the play-action passes.

    Todd Haley will call the majority of the passing plays.

    Parcells will make sure that neither coach receives the blame if the offense fails, and the credit, should it succeed.

    One thing you should know is that Sparano has been running the offense's team meetings. During the game Saturday, Haley gave Sparano a list of passing plays he wanted during certain down and distances, and Sparano sent them in.

    Several players have said that Sparano's attention to detail makes him an efficient play-caller. The only worry is that he's spread pretty thin coaching the offensive line and still advising the tight ends."

    He is calling in the plays after he, Parcells, and Haley have input on a play to call. Pretty crazy to me.

    It is not that hard to juggle run the ball up the middle, run the ball up the middle, throw deep.

    I for one am all for significantly cutting his responsibility.

    Starting with the OL and offense in general.
