The the USAToday sports blog runs a daily Who's In Your Five? feature and today they post the 5 most intriguing coaches for the upcoming NFL season.
And our man Iron Calves makes the list at number 2!
Tony Sparano, Miami: This guy made even have it harder than McCarthy. He is coaching a team that everyone thinks Bill Parcells is running. Perhaps these two will have a perfect marriage but it will be interesting to see what happens if they disagree on anything. All of this would be fine except that Sparano is taking over the worst team in the NFL last season. The good news is that the Dolphins have only one direction left to go. The rest is bad news.
But I gotta disagree with the The USAToday here. Sparano is already proving he can handle his shit. The players are already responding to him and, best of all, when a brawl breaks out on the practice field, he lets it run its course. He actually welcomes it. That's fucking badass. Sparano is the perfect guy to run a Parcells team -- with his freakishly huge calves, angry-sex face and his utter musky manliness. The man is set to make shit happen. He's got the undaunted ballsy strut of an old school airline pilot -- the guys that used to smack the stewardesses in the ass and drink scotch on the rocks before every takeoff and would never let on about the faulty landing gear or the cracked wing. That's the kind of guy we have coaching our Fins. And that's the kind of guy we need.
