[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Parcells Showcasing Failed Personnel Approach : That argument is a two-edged sword. How many SB's have we won without Weiss and Crennel? OK, I don't believe BB is bad without them, and I don't believe Parcells is bad without BB either. Furthermore, we must make a distinction between Parcells the personnel guy, and Parcells the coach.

BB is 39-13 since 2007 and one SB appearance (almost 2 without Weis and Crennel). It may have been 2 SB appearances if Brady hadn't gone down in 2008.
Since 2005, without Weis and Crennel:
In 2006, NE was 14-5.
IN 2005 NE was 11-7.
BB is 64-25 without Weis and Crennel. This is actually incredible considering he's had two offensive coordinators and 2 defensive coordinators since 2005, one of them being a scummy phony and leaving one year in.
Let's cut to the chase and call it like it is.
Parcells pretty much leaned on BB's defensive genius multiple times in different stops with instantaneous results. And if Parcells doesn't take his entire staff to NY in 1997, there is no way Parcells gets the Jets to the AFC Title game either.
But, as far as Parcells understanding econmics, drafting quality players consistently, etc, he has ZERO track record of success.
He had one great draft in Dallas with Jerry Jones hovering over him and that has been about it.
If he had gotten his way in April of 1996, Terry Glenn doesn't catch 90 balls and NE doesn't go to a SB.
