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.
