    Bill Parcells retires from coaching

    There's a whole stable of coaches out there {mostly successful coaches} who worked under Parcell's at one time or another. Belichek is the most notable, but there have been many others. The man certainly wasn't threatened by having talented people around him. Coaching for Bill Parcell's has been a stepping stone to success as an NFL head coach............which is a pretty complimentary legacy.

    His team won 2 Superbowls in New York. New York is still the center of the media universe and arguably the center of the universe period. Since that great run with Lawrence Taylor, Phil Simms and company the NFL {already healthy} has never been healthier. As a business there are few more successful than NFL football and certainly having a Championship caliber team in New York didn't hurt.

    TOUGHNESS..............Bill Parcell's name is synonymous with toughness, both physical and mental. Who'll ever forget his comment re: Terry Glenn, " she's feeling better." {Something like that.} One of my all-time favorites................I think the toughness thing kind of cut both ways. Parcell's expected people to play with pretty serious injuries, etc, but he exemplified the idea that professional sports and football in particular are not for the faint of heart. He believed you had to be physically tough and mentally tough to be a champion. This came through loud and clear in the way he carried himself and in the way his team's played................None of this "touchy-feely" crap for Bill. Football is a man's game to be played by men.................I guess Parcell could be brutal with his tongue. Belichek talked about his first year with Parcell's. He said he made a suggestion or two one time and Parcell's told him to "shut up and record what he saw on the film's" or something to that effect. Bill's tongue was an "equal opportunity razor blade." No one was spared.

    Parcell's worked hard. All coaches {except maybe Bud Grant} have worked very hard from time imemorial but I think Parcell's was on the cutting edge of a generation of pro football coaches who worked 17 hours a day 7 days a week. Parcell's was one of the first guys {or at least his legacy is such} who slept in his office and worked incessantly................a la Belichek.

    I think Parcell's will be remembered as a great football coach who loved the game and was the patriarch to a number of other very successful football coaches. He'll be remembered for his toughness and sharp tongue. He could be a divisive figure {love him or hate him} but as the years go by I believe his legacy will grow.

    The Tuna has retired more times than Ozzy Osbourne! He will finish his career in the swamps of Jersey.

    I'd like to see him on TV doing commentary. It was fun to watch him kibbie out during press conferences.

    He had a lot to do with what we have now in the Patriots. Good luck to him in his retirement AGAIN.

    how many times has Parcells retired from coaching? Too bad, I thought he was staying with the Cowboys for a little longer.

    The gatorade shower was invented in 1985 by nyg ng Jim Burt. Parcells was the recipient.

    Bottom line on the Tuna. The way he left the Pats sums up what should be Boston's memories--'

    It stunk. Elsewhere, let his career stand, but I'll never forget the effect on the Pats when he left at the most critical moment in the Pats history to that time.

    Bill Parcells retires from coaching

    he's "retiring" now...i'm sure he'll be back in the NFL in some way, shape or form within the next year or two.

    we also need to give him credit for the job he did do here in New England! i believe he did set the seed for our 3 super bowl titles. bill belechick expanded on that...

    Bill Parcells retires from coaching

    He's a hall of famer all the way. Hiring Parcells in '93 was how I knew the Patriots were getting serious about putting a perennial winner on the field. And off of the field, his press conferences were a continuing source of sublime joy.

    Reporter: "Blah, blah, blah, really, really, really stupid question, blah, blah, blah."

    Parcells: "Someone here want to clue this guy in?"

    It came as no surprise today that the self-absorbed, morale murdering T.O. (Totally Obnoxious? No, how about Total Offal) blamed Parcells for the Cowboys' shortcomings this year.

    "Hopefully the owner will hire a coach that can take the team to the next level," said Total Offal. Give me a break you lunatic.

    I was glad to see ESPN get some backing for Bill on the air this afternoon. But couldn't they get someone besides that serial batterer Bobby Knight to defend Parcells? Find someone with some credibility would you, boyos?

    He needs to be scarfing Altoids to get rid of the taste. I'd feel bad for him if he were making $8.10 an hour to put up with that nonsense. But I do empathize. I think his hair is steel wool now. If he stayed there long enough he'd look like LBJ near the end.
