Cam Cameron was famous for his circle-jerk spin talk, a habit that eventually had us here at FN conclude that while his penis wanted to give us the straight dope, Cam lacked the balls to say things that may cause a stir among media and fans. But now it seems that we have a head coach in Tony Sparano who says what he means and doesn't give a shit what you think, fucknuts....
-The Sentinel's Ethan Skolnick calls him the "Anti-Cam."
Straight talker, tough talker. No talking in circles. No surprises there. He's the anti-Cameron.
When asked if he had soft spots for small college players, because of his history at New Haven, he said: "I have very few soft spots."... On the roster composition: "It may not be the best 53. It will be the right 53."
-And on the draft:
On the draft: "There's no one position that's more important for us going into this draft. There really isn't. We have a lot of needs."
-From Magical Elf Adam Schefter: Sparano has also been texting Jason Taylor after every Dancing With the Stars episode:
One of Sparano’s primary messages to his prized defensive end: Keep gaining weight and getting ready for training camp. Maybe Miami will trade Taylor, but right now it sounds as if the Dolphins will keep him. Quite a pair that would be, Taylor and Chris Long should Miami draft the Virginia defensive end with the first overall pick.
-But Sparano calls bullshit on Schefter. The coach claims to have only watched the show once:
'I've got to be honest with you,'' Sparano said, speaking to reporters for only the third time since he was hired. "I have seen him [dance] one time, and I was quite impressed. He moves his feet pretty well.''
-Then he said he wants JT on the team:
"'There's no question about it,'' Sparano said. "Having Jason Taylor on our team makes us a better team. At the end of the process, we want good players. And Jason is a good player in our league. I just know, by having to game plan against this team last year [while coaching for the Cowboys], he's a guy you've got to find on the field.''
-Sparano also says the he likes a tandum running back set with Ricky and Ronnie:
Sparano pointed out he needs to learn how Brown, who rushed for 605 yards and averaged 5.1 yards before tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in late October, and Williams, who suffered a season-ending chest injury in the one game he played after returning from his prolonged NFL suspension, complement each other.
-He then added how he likes Lorenzo Booker:
"Lorenzo is an interesting player, obviously. He's a guy that when you watch, he jumps off the film a little bit," Sparano said. "He's interesting in that he's a guy that you've got to get touches for. You've got to find a way to get Lorenzo the ball a little bit that way. I think there's a role."
So we've gone from Cam's "Cleo does a lot of good things. Cleo is learning. I think we’ve all seen the good things Cleo has done and the glimpses." to Tony's "At some point, every player on our team, no matter who they are, will have to show me."
Fuck yea. That, my friends, is the balls.
