View Full Version : Accorsi To Fins in 2007?

There's a rumor on the NFL grapevine that Giants G.M. Ernie Accorsi could resurface as a "consultant" to Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban in 2007, if Accorsi retires after the 2006 season.
Saban and Accorsi have a strong relationship, and Saban likely would benefit from Accorsi's advice on matters such as free agency and the draft. (Unless, of course, Accorsi advises Saban that it would be a good idea to assemble a group of strong, mismatched personalities and then expect a quarterback with the leadership skills of a tree stump to take the team to the Super Bowl.)
With all that said, we're not completely convinced that Accorsi will retire. Legend has it that he had planned to call it quits a few years ago, but that he wanted to help clean up the mess that was created under former coach Jim Fassel.
Though it had appeared that Accorsi had done a good job with his mop and bucket, the team suddenly appears to be in not much better shape than it was three years ago, when Fassel's career crashed and burned. If the Giants continue to disintegrate to the point at which a coaching change might become a real possibility, will Accorsi still walk-PFT

He has been trying to hire Saban for years. I know he is retiring, so a consultant makes sense!

I could see that.
