2006 draft was absolute vomit.
2004 not much better.
Yet, 2003 and 2005 were the 2 best drafts since Jimmy Johnson left....and that while Parcells was here they picked up UDFAs like Romo and Austin.
Just a coincidence, I guess.
Parcells cut his teeth evaluating players under the wing of George Young. That's where he gets his rules of thumb and heuristics. A lot of those same rules of thumb and heuristics are still being used in the NFL today, especially by the two teams that played in the Superbowl last year. Belichick's board might differ on a few players, but overall I bet it's stacked pretty similar.
I always laugh at the attempts to bash Parcells.
He won 10 games in Dallas with Quincy and Hambrick. Any questions about his coaching ability should go out the door there.
Did he have misses? Sure. So did Landry and Jimmy. Belichick has had his fair share too. It happens.
The arrow was pointing up when Parcells was here. It turned back down under Phillips. I just hope part of what Parcells brought to Dallas was a change in culture that is still being implemented today.
