You just want to give him a total pass on some things, while showering praise on him for others. Acquiring a franchise QB was indeed one of the tasks which Parcells knew, or should have known, he'd have to accomplish. He passed on Ryan in favor of Henne. It didn't work. Had it worked, then great, he's a hero. But it didn't work, so he's rightly criticized for it.

    The team had one good season. Good, not great. Had the team built on that success, gotten better every year, then Parcells would be praised. But that didn't happen. Instead, this team is as mediocre as it's ever been, with a good chance of three losing seasons in a row. So, now we have a supposedly great defense, coupled with an offense that wouldn't scare Coral Gables High. You're right, we're not Arizona East. We're Wanny's Dolphins redux. That era sure ended well, as will this one I'm sure.
    The team is younger
    The D-line is better
    The Line Backers are revamped
    The receiving corps is impoved
    The secondary is coming along
    The team has more draft picks
    The team has more money
    The team is finding talent in more locations
    The team has had structure in place longer then it has in years

    Those are the areas that are undeniably better and improving but I guess nothing constructive has been achieved at all.

    I never gave Bill a free pass on the Ryan/Long debate, I said he did what he did to reduce overall risk to team health. I am also at a difference of opinion with some that this team is in a much better shape in 11 to take a risk in the first round on a QB then they were back in 08. Whether they will or not remains to be seen because there are too many factors but I guess tomorrow night will answer the question.

    We view succes differently. in '99 and '00 the Jets swept Miami and missed the playoffs- those were 2 terrible seasons, in '09 we got swept and made the title game- it was a great season. I love beating Miami but I'll take losing twice to them every year if we wind up making the playoffs.

His failure to find a franchise quarterback is a major blemish, but overall, I am grateful for the work he did in Miami. He didn't hit on all of his draft picks, but no one does. I think he has built the team into a solid, tough, young team that is on the right track. If the Dolphins can somehow find their franchise quarterback, you would be surprised how much better the talent Parcells assembled on this team looks.
    Do you watch the Dolphins play? Our gameday coaching and clock management? Guess what we have no leadership! This regime is no better except they have failed the worst with FA failures like Gerbil, Grove, Smiley, Wilford, Green, etc. Not to mention just as many draft failures and question marks.

    The Parcells era is like a chicken with its head cut off. No one knew who was truly calling the shots, no on was held accountable.

    You are sick of fans hating on Parcells. Well I am sick of HOMERS defending him! This is the 4th year we have no QB, 3 out of 5 spots on the oline are question marks, no play maker at te, no kr/pr returner, no quality at RB, and no speed at WR, our safety play is suspect and have up big plays and key first downs all season long. You know what he built us? A 1-7 team at home, that collapses down the stretch, and loses to 3 of the worst teams of the last decade!

    Great be happy with kind of good or mediocre! Real fans aren't and it passes us off to watch this fat fraud cash is 10+ million dollars then cut in run when the fruit if his labor turns bad!

    I wasn't satisfied w/ losing in the title game, I could never be satisfied w/ going 7-9 no matter who we beat.

    I would give up loosing to the Jets for the next 10 years, if it meant winning just 1 Superbowl in my lifetime.

    The team has more moneyno thanks to failure free agent signs and Bill taking his GOLDEN PARACHUTE
    The team is finding talent in more locations like the cowboys trash can?
    The team has had structure in place longer then it has in years not a chance after Harbaughgate Ireland back stabbing and terrible hiring on the offensive staff

    Bottomline line is if the Jets or Patriots had this much drama we would all be laughing!
