Dustin Keller, normally fairly reserved, has been singing the praises of new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano. He had some interesting things to say in an article by Jenny Vrentas:
“He definitely runs a tighter ship than I’ve seen from anyone before, and he’s not going to let anyone slip up,” Keller said last night at the United Way’s Gridiron Gala, where Jets right guard Brandon Moore and Giants right guard Chris Snee were honored for their community service. “I think that’s when problems do arise. It’s going to continue. You can tell it’s not just a one day or an OTA thing, this thing is going to keep on going and going, and I think we need it.”
Keller added: “Most all the guys have been very accountable to themselves, to the things they’re doing, but I think this year more than ever. Everything from the details of how far you need to line up and everything, guys already have that stuff down, and if you don’t, he’s kind of coming down on you. And that’s how it’s going to be all season, you can already tell.”
Keller is an honest guy. Without saying it, this speaks volumes to how things were run under Brian Schottenheimer.
