    For us??

    As of now Jimmy Johnson look at the 2 rocks he turned over for Taylor and Thomas but then again he did grab Avery in the first round.

    JJ built our entire defense from the ground up...and destroyed our offense.

    I remember seeing him reach for 1st round rb after 1st round rb looking for the next emmit. Those picks would have been better served addressing the o-line or looking for Marino's successor.

    Overall. Giants, Cowboys, Pats, Phins, Jets.

    Taylor
    Surtain
    Thomas
    Aikman
    Smith

    Bledsoe
    Martin
    Glenn
    Spears


    elaborate. I think the comparisons are similar.

    JJ could have drafted the reincarnation of Johnny Unitas, still, IMO, for a slew of reasons, he's the worst malignancy that could have, and did eat away at the Fins since Shula retired - so he gets NO accolades from me!!!

    I still think the best evaluator or talent is Butch Davis.

    I seem to remember a WR from U of M that didn't produce either. Yes, Jimmie found some hidden gems, but did ANY of his 1st round picks amount to much? I think the current regime equals his entire draft career with the Dolphins with the 1st draft!

    2 questions, dude....1) Who is Unitas reincarnated? 2) What is that thing on Pennington's arm? (It looks like a vagina made of pasta)

    JJ's best days were with the Cowboys.... Few in league history could match those drafts.. He did well with the Fins.. more so on defense. He did little if anything for the offense.

    I don't think Parcells was responsible for drafting LT, Simms, etc.. I believe the Giants had GM doing that during those years.

    At this point, I would give the edge to JJ, but the book is not closed on Parcells. We'll see how the next few draft classes play out.

    Just my opinion
