BB and tuna
I just saw this, I guess they are buddies again.
Nah. BB is just picking his brain to get a jump on next season. Notice from the photo that Tuna is the one talking. I predict now that we sweep the fish in 2009.
I don't know. BB looks like the he's trapped at a family reunion with that one drunk uncle that will not shut up.
The imaginary thought bubble I see is: "Somebody, anybody......... SAVE ME. He won't shut the fukc up"
Good stuff. There's more football knowledge sitting together in that photo than the rest of the coaches from the NFL combined.
A couple of years ago they were at a baseball game in Fla together. Their issues were resolved before that. So there is nothing new about them being seen together.
Parcells addressed this a few years back while he was with the Cowboys. He buried the hatchet with Belichick because he felt at his age he was too old to carry a grudge. I don't think he will ever make amends with Charlie Weis though. I think Parcells will hold a grudge against him until they put him in a ground.
Lol is BB wearing his trademark hoodie inside out?
I didn't know that Parcells had issues with Weis.
He was trying to be incognito, but the big guy in the loud Dolphins jacket gave him away
Parcells, I believe, has said that the two buried the hatchet years ago when BB called him in Dallas and they just started talking like nothing had ever happened.
I think Weis testified against Tuna at the league hearings over BB trying to break his Green Beans contract to take the Patriots job.
Yep! Parcells was far more betrayed by that than Belichick wanting to leave. In fairness to Weis, Parcells embarrassed Weis earlier in the year by publically stripping him of his play calling duties. There is no love loss between the two.
Nah, the REAL issue is that they both went after the last bowl of pudding at the buffet. ;-)
He wants Welker back...
even that is buried. weis has mentioned talking to parcells before big games in his first at ND like the the one against USC.
Regarding BB ,here is one from the archive
Friends to the end? Parcells, Belichick share secrets - NFL - ESPN
F that! :disagreement:
BB has talked admiringly of his former boss Parcells before.
BB seems to operate largely on the basis of respect, and he surely -- and rightly -- respects Parcells.
There also was the reporting some recent offseason about BB and Parcells reminiscing about how training cap wasn't as tough as it used to be, and reinstituting the Oklahoma drill or something like that.
Barstoolsports has a funny take on it.

Parcells Using Belichick as Sounding Board OTB Sports is the story I was thinking of. Extensive conversations back in 2006, it seems, with Tuna using BB as a "sounding board".
Come to think of it, the last couple of sentences of that article REALLY resonate with what I read in Education of a Coach.
Poor Charlie. He was under oath. What else could he do? Lie?
It's only natural that Parcells would get over Belichick leaving the Jets in that way.
No one in football understands better than Parcells what it means to get out from under a contract and move on to a new situation, where the grass is greener.
There's a bomb in that satchel.
Very True. I think Pioli helped the healing process between those two back in the day.
I think it's one of those, I like ya now and we did great things but there ain't no way in hell we could ever work with each other again type of relationships.
I thought Pioli absolutely does not talk to Parcells at all, family situation, and I don't care to know the particulars.
it looks like Peter Falk talking to Alan Arkin in "The In-Laws"
"Shelley, 10 years from now we'll all be sitting around the table having a big laugh"
I wasn't aware that the two guys ever had personal issues with each other.
Maybe the "media" created that-:confused2::confused2:
That Thornton guy, if only he could drink like his big brother, he'd be the perfect columnist. :rofl:
They're probably joking about how fast they jumped off the good ship Titanic known as the J-E-T-S.
Boy, BP looks like he got really old in a hurry. He should bring back the platinum hair.
No, it was real. Alot of it stemmed from how BP left the Pats and (maybe?) how BB left the Jets.
