    The Giants OT game was a classic. It felt good to return to the playoffs that season.

    I had a lot of hope going into and out of this season. Parcells was certainly not some schmuck like Gailey or Campo, nor was he just a good ole boy like Switzer had been. He was a bonifide, SB winning coach who had won at every level and had a history of taking poor teams and making them contenders withing a couple of years, and 2003 was no exception to that except that it happened ever quicker.

    The defense looked pretty good for the most part except late in games when we tended to give up big plays and couldn't stop teams from scoring in the 4th quarter. Quincy Carter looked like he would make people forget how Jerry had reached for him in the draft and could become a pretty good player for us with some more experience. He had his moments when he looked very good and others when he looked bad but overall it was better than anything we had seem in a couple of years from our QBs. He was certainly better than Chad Hutchinson, Clint Stoerner, and Ryan Leaf.

    Winning 10 games was a real surprise and even though we lost in the first round to Carolina, I still felt that we were on the right track as a team and had a lot of confidence that we would continue to improve under Parcells.

    As for Parcells, I never thought he was all that great of a coach but that he had done a very good job of selecting his assistants... until now. Keeping Mike Zimmer was a HUGE mistake IMO. I had never liked Zimrod, even when he was the DB coach, and didn't like the "bend-but-don't-break" style of defense he had carried over from Dave Campo. I was shocked when we kept him on as he seemed to be the antithesis of the attacking style of defense Parcells used in his other stops.

    Still, the defense played well overall this year and I was hopeful that when Bill moved us to the 3-4 that we would see his usual style come into play.

    Letting go of Emmitt was another move I was against when it happened and couldn't believe that we were going with Troy Hambrick as our feature RB. What in the world had they seen in him that I didn't? How could they not see how bad the guy was? He did gain over 900 yards but they weren't very effective yards for the most part and I thought Bill's Boy, Richie Anderson was the more effective runner although he wasn't likely to ever be the primary RB.

    We had some big wins over the Giants (twice) and Eagles and swept the Redskins (as usual back then) and beat a couple of other teams like the Jets, Cards, Lions, Bills, & Panthers but we had some real stinkers against the Bucs, Patriots, Dolphins, and Saints where we just couldn't get anything going.

    I had entered the season with hope as well as some trepidation but ended it with high hopes for 2004. Those high hopes would soon be brought low though...
