The Jets’ miserable season came to a miserable end in Buffalo on Sunday with a 28-9 loss that left them with a 6-10 record to show for their work this season.
With the season officially over, it’s expected to be the end of offensive coordinator Tony Sparano’s brief stay with the team. He wasn’t really in the mood to discuss that possibility or anything else on Sunday afternoon. Cable network SNY, which carries all the Jets postgame action, caught Sparano walking to the team bus at a healthy pace with a horde of Jets beat writers following him in futile hopes of getting some comments.
Sunday’s game was another disaster for the Jets offense and there isn’t much Sparano could say at this point that could polish up the evidence that he wasn’t the right man for the job.
Wide receiver Braylon Edwards wasn’t a Jet for most of the season, but he was one for a couple of years in the past and he certainly seems to have picked up their ability to turn just about everything into more of a circus than it needs to be. Kevin Armstrong of the New York Daily News passes along word that Edwards made a gun to the head gesture on his way back to the locker room when he saw the assembled media waiting in the tunnel, a shot SNY also captured.
Mike Vorkunov of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that Edwards said after the game that he wants to return to the team next season. We’re not sure how the ol’ gun to the head routine fits into that, although we are talking about a man who got a job from people he had recently called idiots this season.
