More From Parcells

These are quotes taken from the Online blog of Armando Salguero…I use them only because he is quoting from an interview with Bill Parcells.

  • Parcells said he has no trouble working for new owner Stephen Ross. Ross sat next to him during the draft.

  • Parcells said the Dolphins have more needs — still — than most teams. “You haven’t got enough room in your column if I give you the list,” Parcells said. “But I’m never happy.”

  • Parcells doesn’t know what he has at quarterback and says we really won’t know until the Dolphins lose a game, “35-7 and the quarterback throws four interceptions, and maybe he broke his nose, and the fans are booing, and the press is on his [butt] and the coaches are looking at him sideways, and now it’s Wednesday after the game and the time has come for him to walk into the huddle and lead.”

  • Parcells absolutely loves punter Brandon Fields. You read that right. He loves the punter. I’ll explain why in my print story. Apparently he’s not quite so in love with the kicker. Parcells said incumbent Jay Feely will have a competition on his hands for the job this year.

    I find the comment about the kicker interesting. Everyone knows BP doesn’t like kickers and I think that Feely who loves to talk may very well be gone by the end of the training camp.

    Southbeach, I read your post in the Cowboys forum requesting our thoughts on the people Parcells got from Dallas (players and coaches) and I have a few for you.

    The best player you guys got out of the deal(in my opinion) is Keith Davis. I really didn’t like to see this guy go. He is a flat out leader on special teams, and also a talented safety. As a matter of fact, a lot of Cowboys fans would have rather given up Roy Williams than Keith Davis. I am not one of those guys, BUT you guys got a good one in him.

    Akin Ayodele is not a K.O. player, but he will contribute a good game for you guys long enough for you guys to get back on your feet there. I mean, he was a starter for Dallas last year, and not too many complaints about him. It’s just with the deal struck with Zach Thomas, a now healthy Burnett, and a set place on the field now for Carpenter, Dallas just needed to let him go to get some cap room. It is a position of depth for Dallas.

    Nathan Jones sucks. Sorry, I just can’t sugar-coat that one for you guys.

    Jason Ferguson is a good veteran pick-up for you guys especially for a 7th rounder and a late round swap of picks. If he can stay healthy he will contribute nicely.

    Anthony Fasano is ok. He hasn’t played a lot in Dallas behind Jason Witten. Mostly in short yardage, 2 TE sets. His hands aren’t the greatest, but he can get seperation, and he is a physical guy. With a little more action on the field he COULD be a really good player. Who knows? Only time will tell.

    As far as the coaches go, Parcells knows how to pick his guys. That’s no secret. I just wish he would have waited til AFTER the playoffs to go after recruiting these guys. It proboboly wouldn’t have mattered anyway I guess since they probobly already had their minds set to go to Miami once Parcells took the job there. These guys evidently like working with him too, so you guys probobly have a good thing there. It will take a while to see how Sparano works out as a head coach, but Parcells has faith in him there. That’s a good thing. Don’t get me wrong. I actually was glad to see some of these coaches go seeing who Jerry Jones and Wade Phillips brought in to replace these guys. It was a win situation for both teams I think. Of coarse that will be determined on the field, but I like what I see so far. It’s good to have Campo back in Dallas.

    Thanks Steam for that information. It’s nice to get a percpective from another side of the fence.
