    It was a good read.. Plus its amazing how BB, Crennel and Mangini come from the same school and still use Parcells methods.. Players weight and size is important.. ANd how the coaches constantly mentally drill the players..

    Great article. It's amazing how the same approach can work through different coaches and different teams. Get the right players in place, get the most out of your players. MUCH easier said than done.

    The craziest thing about this article is : he signed a five-year, $6 million contract

    Man, if that doesn't prove times have changed, nothing does.

    I caught that too. I was wondering is that was real big money for coaches then. I assume it was.

    It would have been nice if the b@stard had coached to win the SB instead of letting his ego get in the way. I appreciate what he did for the club, but the way he went out was unforgivable.

    The best football coach I have ever seen.

    Years ago during my 3 days of torture in the Colts TC, my room mate was a former Giant and he literally worshipped the ground that Parcells walked on.

    That tells the story right there.

    I changed the paragraph to reflect the times.
