Bill Parcells to stay with Miami Dolphins

Since even before Miami lost in the first round of the playoffs, the rumor mill in regards to the Dolphin VP of Football Operations, had been working overtime. From the Sun-Sentinel-

Walking through Super Bowl media headquarters Friday afternoon, Dolphins Vice President of Football Operations Bill Parcells proudly pointed to the picture of him atop the shoulders of Giants players after winning Super Bowl XXI against the Broncos 22 years ago.

But his favorite Super Bowl moment came four years later in the Giants’ 20-19 victory over the Bills in Tampa Stadium when Buffalo kicker Scott Norwood’s 47-yard field-goal attempt sailed wide.

“My most cherished memory is when that field goal went right,” Parcells said while racing through a plethora of media appearances to promote Gatorade ‘G.’

Parcells is hoping to duplicate that memory with the Dolphins and reiterated that he isn’t interested in using a 30-day escape clause in his contract.


Parcells said that despite an 11-5 season and playoff berth, the rebuilding process was far from complete.

I agree, the Dolphins still need a lot of work. Pennington will good for one more year or two at the most. He is injury prone, and I’d be surprised if he gets through 2009 and 2010 without getting hurt. The Dolphin defense is still old, and the secondary mediocre at best. The receiving corps is weak. There are plenty of areas that need improvement.

Miami had an easy schedule this year. It filled with games against Oakland, St. Louis, Kansas City, Seattle, and a few other teams that were really bad. I think the Dolphins will relapse in 2009, 7-9 or 8-8.
