    Then that's why Parcells has him so high. He always wanted big and tough, athleticism didn't matter. If they were athletic, he took it out of them. Like making Bradie play at a weight that took away his mobility, or turning Julius into CompuBack, or thinking Rob Pettiti had something.

    No, no. It is trendy to bash Parcells and completely ignore the good things he did here. Took a perennial cellar dwellar back to the playoffs and respectability and built a team that Phillips used to get his first playoff win.

    He's gone and a couple of years later, the team is 6-10 again.

    I wasn't completely happy with everything he did, but he was a far superior coach to Phillips and the positives he brought to the franchise far outweighed whatever people want to gripe about.

    There's a reason why some teams didn't want him to "pick the groceries."

    Goose has him ranked 70th on his top 100 list. In other words, a borderline late 2nd/early 3rd guy.

    Turns out Parcells knows more than www.internet-draft-nerd-wannabe-scout.com that for some reason people take as gospel.

    I think Parcells was a great HC and a great motivator but honestly I don't think he is a great personnel man not bad but not as great as some have tried to make him out to be. He was not buying the groceries in NY with the Giants and Jets nor in NE but he knows how to coach them

    I'd like to thank you for your post. I get so annoyed when people cherry-pick a couple of players that didn't make it, and forget that we were 6-10 for years before Parcells. And now, like you mention, we're 6-10 again.

    Parcells may have had any number of traits that made people personally dislike him, and wish he was gone. I don't share the view, but I can see that. But he was/is one of the best at building winning teams in NFL history. I'm guessing the disdain Parcells gets on this board is not shared among NFL personnel people.

    Parcells is a great coach he has never been a top Personnel guy. He did not buy the Groceries with the Giants or the Jets, he moaned about Terry Glenn with the Pats yet Terry ended up being a very good player for him. He is an outstanding coach. BP has changed the culture on losing teams but personnel man no he is not
