Parcells Record w/Cowboys Compared to his previous stints
Took following Parcell's comparison in previous years with other teams off another Cowboys board. Very interesting:
1. First 3 years with Giants, he went 22-25-1; had 2 winning seasons, 2 playoff seasons. In 4th year won SB.
2. First 3 seasons with Patriots went 21-27; 1 winning season, 1 playoff season, 0 playoff wins. In 4th year took team to SB but lost.
3. First 3 seasons with Jets he went 29-19; 2 wining seasons, 1 playoff seasons, 1 playoff win. No 4th season.
4. First 3 seasons with Cowboys goes 25-22 (1 more game left to play); 2 winning seasons, 1 playoff season (so far). 06 season will be his 4th year with Cowboys.
And some of you want to get rid of him at end of this season. Great timing you got.
Hope he signs 2 year extension. Not too disturbed by rumor he might retire but don't believe it. I do think he is down since his brother's death only 1 month ago. They were close & a younger brother is not supposed to die before an older brother does. He just needs a little time to himself to grieve & spend some time with his children. His batteries will recharge & he'll be fine to make the changes in 06 offseason which will take Cowboys at least deep into playoffs in 06. A FS & LB on defense; 2-3 additions to offensive unit & a PK combined with our young & jelling team going into 2nd year playing in 3-4 defense will make the noise we all hope for. Go Cowboys.
BTW: Too many sports writers are idiots. Don't take time to understand the game, think they are more important then the game or the players, and want their name in print no matter whether what they say is worth anything or not.
