[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Parcells Quits Yet Again : Weren't you about to tell me all those other coaches/gms who have taken 5 teams to the playoffs?

GMs or coaches? You don't itemize each role because it makes you look incredibly stupid. You certainly don't need to try hard, do you? lol
He's had varying results with each role.
Parcells has only taken two teams to the playoffs as an exclusive GM (Miami and NYJ).
He did it partially in Dallas, NE.
He was not a GM with the Giants. So, it's not 5 teams.
Facts hurt trolls. You're a troll.
In the cap era, Parcells is a less than .500 GM and a less than .500 coach.
Mike Holmgren has done thise twice, whether with exclusice personnel control in Seattle or as you say "partial" in Green Bay with Ron Wolf.
I am sure if Holmgren embarrassingly quits the Browns after they make the playoffs and pulls a Parcells, he'll be right on Billy Boy's heels.
Bobby Beathard built multiple teams as a GM, as did George Young.
Bill Polian is another. 3 total teams.
If he quit tomorrow, he'd have a team in the playoffs, soon. So would Andy Reid.
I repeat: Without BB Parcells is a sub .500 coach in the cap era.
I repeat: As GM partial GM in NE, NYJ, Dallas or Miami, his work in the front office made those teams REGRESS.
If only the names I mentioned above quit in fear of losing control of their egos.
Learn history before mouthing off:
In 1978, the Washington Redskins named Beathard general manager. During his tenure in Washington, Beathard and head coach Joe Gibbs led the Redskins to three Super Bowls and two championships. In addition, the 1991 championship team for the Redskins was primarily composed of players that Beathard had brought to the Redskins. Prominent Beathard draft picks for the Redskins include Art Monk, Joe Jacoby, Mark May, Russ Grimm, Dexter Manley, Charlie Brown, Darrell Green, Charles Mann, and Gary Clark.
Beathard retired as general manager of the San Diego Chargers in 2000 after 10 seasons with the club. In just his third season in San Diego, the organization won its first AFC Western Division championship in more than a decade and, after five years, appeared in its first Super Bowl.
Beathard WON SUPER BOWLS and actually had SD in a SB in 1994, drafting one, Rodney Harrison.
This is far more impressive than Parcells's role as GM so far. FAR MORE IMPRESSIVE.
Beathard also was director of player personnel for the 1970s Dolphinsprior to.....guess who?!!.....George Young.
You like to lose, don't you?
So, Polian, George Young and Beathard lead the group with SB appearances as GM and doing it with multiple teams.
"Make the playoffs" because Brady gets hurt or because he goes 9-7 and squeaks in as Dallas coach is not anywhere near this level.
