From the Daily News' Gary Myers comes an alternate history worthy of Harry Turtledove: A source who was in New York's draft room in 2000 claims one scout aggressively urged Bill Parcells to select Tom Brady with the Jets' sixth-round draft pick.
Mike Francesa's gawt a hazing storee for ya in the video above, uh-kay. It dates back to 1993, when Drew Bledsoe was a big-shot rookie with the Patriots. Francesa only took paht beccause it's what Pahcells wanted. But it was hahmless, uh-kay. And now one is left to wonder what Francesa would do with all that…
Whenever Mike Francesa goes on one of his unhinged screeds about Rex Ryan—the ones in which he bloviates about "classlessness" and buffoonery—I imagine Bill Parcells whispering huskily in Francesa's ear: He can coach defense, sure, but that's not what a head coach does, OK? Francesa and Parcells are famously good…
Bill Parcells and Robert Kraft do not make mistakes. But but... Pete Carroll! Quincy Carter! No. Shut up. Not mistakes. Never mistakes. Just slightly raised cobblestones on the path to greatness.
The NFL's next Hall of Fame class, just announced, has a few dudes the TV made famous. There's Bill Parcells, who made a coaching career of winning two Super Bowls with the Giants and then convincing other teams believe he might ever do it again; Cris* Carter, who just proved that even Jerry Rice Lite was Hall of Fame…
Oh, you thought Bill Parcells was going to babysit the Saints for a year? Not if Zygi Wilf gets his way, says the New York Post:
ESPN reports that Sean Payton has floated the idea that Bill Parcells could be the Saints' placeholder coach while Payton serves his one-year suspension. Parcells is something of a mentor to Payton, so the two have been talking a lot recently, with Payton needing a big Tuna-y shoulder to cry on. But football makes for…
As per Adam Schefter, the honorees are Jack Butler, Dermontti Dawson, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Curtis Martin and Willie Roaf. No Bill Parcells and no wide receivers.
"That story we had earlier tonight about Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, if that's what it is (and our news director thinks it is), is yet another example of the decline of journalism as we once knew it." [WFAA]
A source sends along this video of a seemingly inebriated Jerry Jones waxing off about Tim Tebow ("he'd never get on the field"), Bill Parcells ("not worth a shit"), and how he got his stadium. Read the rough transcript after the jump.
We do not claim to be experts in the field of NFL general management, but we'd have to think when your team just went 1-15, and Bill Parcells just became your new boss, you're not long for this world.
It has been a while since a sport's biggest stage has been overwhelmed with something as tedious as a potential coaching change. The most famous example, of course, was when Bill Parcells had his one foot out the door while supposedly preparing his New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. We never felt he took as big a…
Bobby Knight sure has been chatty since breaking the all-time NCAA men's win mark. Here's his take on the whole Bill Parcells situation in Dallas. Parcells, a longtime friend of Knight's since their coaching days at Army, resigned earlier this week. The reason? It's all because of Terrell Owens, of course.
You know, it's funny: The Dallas Cowboys' season appears to be disintegrating, and even though Terrell Owens had to go so far as to try to kill himself to derail the team, he seems to be the least of their problems.
No one involved wants to comment on it, but the Dallas Cowboys have finally fined Terrell Owens $9,500 for missing a team meeting, missing a rehab session, being late to an offensive meeting, and, according to Bill Parcells "being such a dick."
For those who remember, and for those who can't forget:
