Miami Dolphins fans looking to get an early look at the team will be happy with the team’s latest announcement. The Dolphins have been selected to play the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL Hall of Fame Game, which is the first game of the preseason on August 4.
When Jake Long signed with the St. Louis Rams Sunday night, it ended not only his tenure at left tackle, but also completed the abysmal failure that was Bill Parcells’ time as the head of the Miami Dolphins.
Bill Parcells was a winner everywhere he coached. Time and time again, he took over struggling franchises and showed them what it takes to be a success, including a pair of Super Bowl titles with the New York Giants.
A South Florida team made the playoffs last night, but it wasn’t the Panthers. It’s opening night for the Fish, and for some reason unknown to me, Bill Parcells is the hot coaching commodity out there.
The last time the NFL saw Bill Parcells, he was leaving the mess that is the Miami Dolphins behind and heading for a cushy television job. But, Parcells may be coming back to the league, again.
The Miami Dolphins have been largely kept on the sidelines during the annual free agent spending frenzy due to the salary cap. But unlike a team like several other teams against the salary cap, Miami doesn’t have the victories to back up the big spending.
First it was the Big Three coming together with the Miami Heat. Now, the Miami Marlins are going all-in to try and establish a winner in South Florida. All of it has turned South Florida into arguably the professional sports capital of the country, with the exception of the Miami Dolphins.
Bill Parcells, former Dolphins executive vice-president, finally admitted this week that he messed up in draft Pat White and not drafting Matt Ryan. But he gave no endorsement of current Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne and said not drafting Matt Ryan came down to one simple factor.
If you’re a Fins phan, well, it’s safe to say you’re probably used to this by now. The Fins are out of the playoff picture and have already turned their attention to next year.
