So the man ain't scared of change.
But he has never left a team after one year. He stays for 3 or 4 years and then departs after returning the team from the depths of despair to respectability.

He's been with the Dolphins one season, and based on what they accomplished this year it figures he'll want to see it through and get a chance to grab another ring.

I would say he's already returned Miami to respectability, but i think you're right about the likelihood of him staying in place to be part of another championship. On the other hand, what if Parcells looks for "projects" more than anything? We might be fun for him and jeez Danny would look bad keeping the unproven Vinny if the Big Tuna were up to the challenge.

(no I don't think anything will come of this either, but I don't know what else to do until we start rearranging the roster/staff)

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.
Fair points, however I stand by my thinking that it is worth a discussion. I wouldn't say anything that's been mentioned here since this thread was started would fit the label of "rampant speculation."

No offense, but whether or not it's "worth" a discussion really isn't your call. If you don't think it is, feel free not to discuss it. A big chunk of this site is based on "what ifs" and speculation.

Again, I personally never said I expect him to opt out of his contract, nor did I say I think we should or will obtain his services. I just said financially it would be a smart move.

I agree that there's an overwhelming chance he won't end up here or anywhere else but Miami next year. But he could leave Miami if he wanted, and nothing is out of bounds with Danny. So I started a thread.

While I don't intend to perpetuate a debate over whether this thread was worth starting or not, because that would be hella lame, let me just say that by no means do I think it's "my call" to deem threads unworthy.

However I've got a right to my opinion, and I like to think the Warpath is a little better than the numerous boards out there that so often fan the flames of unfounded rumors. You're well within your right to start threads like this, I just happen to think I'm doing a board a service by coming along and giving my educated opinion as to why it's pointless to discuss.

No biggie.

It's all good.

It certainly wasn't my intention to dumb down the site by posting a mindless thread. But for the record, did I post anything that was an "unfounded rumor?" I simply pointed out the fact that he had the opt-out clause, and maybe opened the door to entertain some speculation. Who we draft, who gets fired, who's a free agent, who will be offered the dreaded "vet min..." It's all part of this board, and all speculation, often times based on nothing but thin air.

Anyway, I don't want to beat a dead horse. At this point I fully expect this thread to slowly fade down the front page and slip off into oblivion.

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

oh my god,

BILL PARCELLS???

DAN, SNYDER, mr SNYDER, i hope your listening or reading this.

PLEASE, PLEASE, do anything to bring the TUNA here. the nfc east foe, oh my (this is the sign), read the redskins history, learn something from Sam Huff trade. and your own past mistakes.

THE TUNA, is the greatest coach/GM there is then NFL history.
he = jerry west.

as much as i loved Gibbs, esp. during 82-92, the man was 2nd only to Vince Lombardi, and now i have to admit, the the Lombardi trohpy should be renamed to the Parcells/Tuna trophy. Not only he had Gibbs number but he is the only proven success there is. either he can bring you playoffs but built the team to be a competitor and SB bound.

HE IS THE GREATEST, (people read, do a little research, HISTORY)

Let's not forget the two times (Bucs and Falcons) that he agreed to join a team and then changed his mind before ever actually spending a single day as an employee (coach/GM) of the team.

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

I would like having Bill in the FO for the skins. He really knows his shit, and can bring in some young talent, or develop what we've already brought in.
The smart move for him is to go though. What would you do, work the remaining time on your contract for 12 mil, or take the 12 mil and sign somewhere else for another contract with another 12 mil?

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

Why the hell would the Danny want Parcells? Parcells would want the same arrangement Marty wanted in 2000, if not more. The Danny is about ego and power, not nearly as much as Jerry Jones, but still enough to affect his franchise.

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

Don't know how legit it is, but there's a pretty hot rumor down at the Senior Bowl that now that the Dolphins' sale is official, Parcells is interested in taking his skills elsewhere.

Elsewhere as in out to Oakland and bringing in Todd Bowles to be his head coach.

Personally, I don't believe there's any way that happens. But who knows

Florio over at PFT suggested that it may be KC, and as a head coach, since Pioli (Parcells' son-in-law) just took the GM job out there. Interesting.

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

Yeah, I don't know about that. I mean why would Pioli take the job if he was going to then turn around and cede some control. I mean Pioli finally has what he always wanted, full control. I'd be surprised if he gave it up but I guess anything's possible.

I agree. In addition to what you mentioned, there would be the whole my son-in-law is my boss thing going on.

Parcells stays in charge.

Stephen Ross seals deal, now Miami Dolphins' majority owner - ESPN
