This proves why you have a low IQ. Maybe because they are two different jobs?
Ladies and Gentlemen, Exhibit A as to why Phat Rex is officially stupid.
Jerry Jones called the shots in Dallas and had final say. He and Parcells apparently worked in tandem.
It is VERY RARE for a team to have both a GM and coach as one role.
In NE, Parcells didn't have enough say, hence why he quit during SB week in January 1997.
He was a coach first in NY and NE. Only when he went to the Jets did he have control over personnel.
He failed there, as Herm Edwards was left holding the bag in the early 00s with some sch-muck named Terry Bradway as GM. You know who that is, don't you,, Phat Boy?
Of course GM and coach are two different roles. The irony is, there are only a few GMs and cocahes who do both, one of them being BB.
Andy Reid is another.
Andy Reid has been a better GM than Bill Parcells. FACT.
In 2001, Reid was named executive vice president of football operations of the Eagles. He is currently one of three coaches in the league who effectively has the power of general manager
, the others being the Patriots' Bill Belichick
and the Washington Redskins
