Re: Report: Parcells Considering Offer to Become Falcons' VP

[quote=Beemnseven;394884]Wow. Parcells just can't stay away, can't he?

As long as Gibbs is head coach/Team President, he will never hire someone or suggest that someone else be hired to give him marching orders.

So it will never happen.

Still, in an ideal world, I'd go back to the formula that worked the first time -- have Joe Gibbs as the football coach, and have someone else bring him the personnel.[/quote]

Couldn't have said it better myself! To me this rule of thumb applies to every NFL team! Heck all the top AFC teams (which I consider the better conference right now) use this approach of having a seperate GM than coach: The Patriots got Scott Pioli, Colts have Bill Polian, Pittsburgh has Kevin Colbert. I always thought the NFL was a copy cat league and when other teams want to have good consistent teams year after year like these 3 teams do, they would try and assimilate a front office structure in a similar pattern after these 3 teams.

Maybe he's thinking about Matt Ryan with that number one pick? From what I hear he's moving towards being a consensus number one.

I say no. I am not all that impressed with what McKay has done either in Atl or TB.

Re: UPDATE: Parcells Reconsidering Falcons Offer, Interested in Dolphins Now

Here's an updated article on Parcells

ESPN - Parcells spurns Falcons, close to deal with Dolphins - NFL

If the Giants let Coughlin go, it will be interesting to see if he joins Parcells wherever he ends up

4-year deal apprently. Crazy. All that's left for Parcells now is the Bills in the AFC East

ESPN - Source: Parcells signs on as Dolphins Executive VP - NFL (Updated as of right now)

You almost have to feel sorry for Arthur Blank. His franchise went from having a great future to having a huge mudhole stomped into it in about 12 months. Parcells could have really turned things around.

I wonder what the motivation was to have Big Tuna go to Miami instead of Atlanta...and you might as well find a new job, Cam Cameron.

Probably because of the ownership situation. Blank is a very hands on guy while Huizinga cuts the checks and stays in the background.

Did Jason Garret work with Parcells in Dallas or was he brought in after the fact?

Re: UPDATE: Parcells Reconsidering Falcons Offer, Interested in Dolphins Now

Wow.

Another chapter in the story of the Falcon's getting royally screwed by one guy after another.

Vick throws his life away and gets jailed. Petrino skips town in the middle of the night after being all buddy-buddy with the owner the day before. Now Parcells appears close to a deal and then backs out for something better.

Atlanta can't catch a break.

So I guess the tuna's not dolphin safe after all.

Uh, get it? Tuna, dolphins... you know you like it.

(God damn I'm funny!)
