    Don't they get tangled in the nets or something like that? After the Vick fiasco, I think Huizenga is going out on a limb here. Thoughts??

    He's a poor choice for front office position, no matter the team. Coaching under him will be brutal.

    I can't see any possible way that this marriage ends well. Parcells belongs in a broadcast booth or on the tube, not in actual day to day operations with a team. The man is a team killer.

    Dolphin-free Tuna is the only politically correct arrangement. I don't know if PETA will get involved, but it doesn't look good.

    You folks dissin the Tuna forget that the Miami franchise has completely crashed and burned.
    The Tuner has proven that he can ressurect a moribund franchise. Give him his 3 years or so, let him quit and then deal with the pieces of in this case an improved franchise but not a first rank winner. ANYTHING is better than the parade of coaches post JJ and QBs post Marino. It's been downhill.

    Four out of four team surveyed were better off when he left than when he got there.

    Is he taking them to the SB next year? heck no. But could he put together an A+ coaching team and a solid program, sure as hell yes.

    His job is to find the hidden Belichick and Pioli.

    I love it. I honestly believe that this will keep that putrid franchise down for another 3-5 years. He's on a 4 year deal and I guarentee that he will not finish the contract.
    Coaching for him would be awful. Pioli would never make such a dumb move to GM for him.
    This is just good news all around. Now if we can just get Herm to agree to come back and coach the Jets!
    Peace.

    IMO, the Big Fish is better than they had for the last many years in the FO. A problem may be though whether when he appoints a GM and HC, if he lets them do thier jobs or is overbearing and tries to tell them how to do thier jobs. My guess is the latter, but where he didn't like being told how to do his job, maybe he'll see that and leave them alone.

    In the short term he could be a quick fix. Long term I think this ensures an unstable franchise will remain unstable as no one in their right mind thinks he will be there long term.

    Yes I most certainly do.....For one thing, and probably MOST importantly.....Tuna is a LYING SCUMBAG that does not keep his word.......He has trouble dealing with most people......and is QUICK to CUT AND RUN when things do not go his way.....He F'ed the Falcons and USED them to push up the ante in the Pot to the doofins.....He is the OPPOSITE of all that is BB and the Patriots......He has DONE VERY LITTLE since winning the SB with the gints that last year..........and since coaching the Pats when they went to the SB in 96......he has not accomplished much......I see Fat Boy leaving the doofins after about 2 years.........TUNA SUCKS!!!!!!!!

    I don't know how coaching part of it would work out given his overbearing style but is there is any question that this guy can bring in good talent? Troy Brown, Adam Vinatieri, Willie Mac, Ted Johnson, Ty Law, Lawyer Milloy, Tedy Bruschi- all key contributors to the superbowl run were acquired during his tenure. That is a pretty impressive list if you think about it.

    I agree 100%. Three years from now, Miami will be a much better team.

    I think a lot of people misunderstand Parcel's new position, he will not be the coach or the GM.

    His will hire both coach and GM but his primary responsibility will be talent acquisition ie the DRAFT.

    Yes he will be the guy everyone reports to and he will oversee their departments but really he is going to be in Scott Pioli's position with all the power instead of being a subordinate.

    I think it is a perfect fit, limited to executive hrs except for the 3 mths leading up to and including the draft and if he does with talent what he did with the Pats, NY and Dallas, the Phins will be better off when he leaves then when he came in.

    Which from my point of View REALLY SUCKS!

    Tuna got hired by Miami?

    Don't they owe us a couple of draft picks now?

    Eff-him too.
