Oh I don't know, because this is a f'ing Redskins board? Why do these non-Redskins fans ask these stupid questions?

Why is it that almost everyone who has commented on this thread hasn't taken the time to read the article or the original post?

Did I say Parcells wanted to come here? Did I say he should or will?

Agreed. That was part of my argument when a few people suggested this topic wasn't thread worthy.

I'm disappointed. Rather than some intelligent discussion about Parcells' situation, this thread has fizzled into smart ass comments and people questioning my even bringing up the topic. Sigh.

At least we all know who to PM here before we make a thread now.

Seriously DK, grow up, just because you don't agree with it doesn't mean that it's useless to discuss the possibility of. If you were that smart, you might be the GM.

Re: Bill Parcells has opt-out clause, could walk away from Dolphins

Apparently the Lions, Jets, Browns and Raiders are all interested in Parcells. It would be kind of cool to see him go to Detroit. Their fans deserve a winner for once.

Laugh all you want but if Parcells goes to the Raiders or Browns either one of those teams would make the playoffs. Both teams have a lot of talent, the problem is the FO.

Re: Bill Parcells has opt-out clause, could walk away from Dolphins

The Danny loves the current arrangement, because he has some say in personnel matters. With Parcells, he would have to hand over all authority, and unfortunately that ain't happening.

Yeah, Lil' Danny tried that back in 2001 when he reluctantly handed the keys over to Marty Schottenheimer. That lasted about a year.

On draft day in the war room, Parcells wouldn't let Lil' Danny in the room.

Agreed. Czabe had an interesting idea today on the radio - the best thing for the skins would be for Danny to fire Cerrato and not hire a replacement. By getting rid of the "insulation" Danny would have full control like Jerry Jones.After a year or two, Danny would be forced to realize how horrible he was and learn to stay out of his GMs way.

Personally, i think even Cerrato would be a better GM if danny were not so involved. As a fan, i understand Dannys desire to be involved in things. If i were a billionaire, i'd buy the redskins and get as involved in this stuff as I could too... but its simply not his forte.

If parcells did come here, it would be nice though. Unlike Gibbs and Cerrato, he would have the balls to tell Danny to back the h--- off.

That's why I was joking,if you read about Parcells deal he only deals with the owner and even then he has final say,did'nt work in Dallas or with the Jets but did in New England and in Miami.

Re: Bill Parcells has opt-out clause, could walk away from Dolphins

From Yahoo:

Parcells has a history of being on the move, and he has held three jobs in the past two years. He quit coaching after the 2006 season with Dallas and was a TV network analyst in 2007. He spent four years with the Cowboys, three with the Jets and four with the Patriots.

So the man ain't scared of change.

Yes. Exactly. Pacellls or any serious GM professional will NEVER come to DC with the present arrangement. Nor will the Redskins consistently win with the present arrangement.

4) If Parcells was willing to work with Jerry Jones, why wouldn't he work with Snyder?

I don't think we'll go after him, nor am I suggesting we should. However, it's worth a discussion.

Thanks for trying to shit all over it though. Good try.
What I meant was this:

1) Just because Parcells has a financial incentive to opt out doesn't mean he will. At this stage in their careers, these guys have made enough money. After all, he's got a decent financial incentive to stay, too.

2) The clause was put into his contract clearly because he had a working relationship with Huizenga. He asked for the out clause in case he ended up with an owner he couldn't work for. So far, we have no evidence that will be the case.

3) You damn well know Cerrato isn't going anywhere.

4) Parcells is into rebuilding projects. The Patriots, the Jets, the Cowboys, and now the Dolphins. He likes to take teams from the basement and turn them around. The Redskins are not his cup of tea, there's already a foundation in place here.

5) The 'Skins don't have the immediate cap space for him to make the changes to transform this into a Parcells type team. He'd need to acquire a strong NT for the 3-4, a copious amount of linebackers because he likes big ones and none of ours are big, etcetera etcetera.

This thread just serves to fuel rampant speculation started by examining one little out clause in his contract. There's no point in discussing it in the context of the Redskins if you know anything about Parcells' past.
