So what you are saying he was just a puppet Parcells used so he could deflect criticism as he slowly ruined the team. That makes him even more of a lackey than was previously stated. By the way, player transactions and hiring the coaches are the GM's job.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General...an_football%29
The team was 1 and 15 when he arrived what was there to ruin genius? Ireland only hired Philbin but was hired by Parcells. I guess you could credit him with the coahes hired by Parcells that he fired and hired others to replace like Nolan but your still batting zero on your post.
