    This is sad. I knew Coach Joe, I met with him, and I had breakfast with him. He was a man’s man and a coaches’ coach. He understood football.

    I blame Bill Parcells for letting him go, in pursuit of his own ego. Joe Avezzano was a man among men. Parcells will never be nothing more than a jerk among jerks.

    Rest in peace, Coach Joe.
