Some players don't like Sparano

So, some players don't like playing for Sparano.  Evidently, they think he's too tough.

"In just half an NFL season as a head coach, Sparano’s demanding, vocal, my-way-or-the-highway approach already has alienated some players.

This week, Sports Illustrated released the results of a poll of 320 players leaguewide who were asked “Which current NFL coach would you least like to play for?

Sparano is 4th, with 7-percent of the vote, roughly 22 players, or about 1/2 the number of the players he’s cut since he arrived last January."

But not everyone feels that way.  According to Channing Crowder:

“Some of those nicer like like Wade Phillips and all, those guys who are players’ coaches and all that stuff, what’s the saying, nice guys finish last,” Crowder said. “I believe that.”

In a reference to last year's 1-15 season under then-head-coach Cam Cameroon, Crowder had this to say:

“Coming from Pudding Cam and all that, soft as a cotton ball, we had to have someone in here who had a little jerk in him,” Crowder said. “They brought in the right guys. They’re going to be a jerk and tell you what they want you to do, and if you don’t they’ll get rid of you.

“I love them.”

Man, I sure like Crowder, and I *love* Sparano.  Bring it Tony!
