    Fascinating... and it can only help both teams, I reckon.

    Good article. Here's the cut I like:

    "Hey, he's a guy I think a lot of," Parcells said Tuesday. "It's a good sounding board, that's all. I'm probably using him right now more than he's using me."
    ----

    I guess the "border war" is really finally over.

    And only one of these coaches gives a media interview about it. Which one? Do you think you can guess? :)

    Nice find, thanks for posting. Nice to read they seem to have buried the hatchet.

    Maybe the stage is set for a metting in Miami in Feb??

    It's funny for all the enemies I thought Belichick has, it seems he buries the hatchet better than anyone (Parcells, Lawyer Milloy, Ty Law, Bernie Kosar). The sign of an truly intelligent human being.

    Has BB made up with Lawyer? That would make me happy.

    In one of Mike Reiss' mailbags, he stated that he watches post-game handshakes every time, saying its a great indicator of who Belichick really respects.
    After the Atlanta preseason game, he said that BB went to Lawyer and shook his hand. He also said Lawyer seemed happy to see and talk with Bill. A nice story to hear, as I really respected what Lawyer brought to this franchise, especially during the Pete Carroll years.

    Interesting piece and I'm kind of glad to hear it since each clearly owes a lot to the other. Doubt they'd be talking if they were in the same Division or even the same Conference tho.

    Hope not. That is still the lowest, most ill-informed, unfair and idiotic set of comments I've heard from one of the NFL's pre-game "talking heads" (and, that's saying a lot given some of the time-filler drivel we have to listen to before we get to the game).

    Its funny even though Tom Jackson made those ridiculous commnets, I still find him to be in the upper-echelon of television football analysts, especially among ex-players. His points are clear and I seem to agree with most of his observations on the NFL. He's much better than Irvin, Marino, Steve Young and many, many more.

    Heres another thank you for that post, promisedland.

    How awesome would it be if these two guys meet in the SB?

    Y'all are welcome. I think Parcells and BB would love to meet in the Super Bowl, too. For these guys it's all a chess game, or perhaps it would be better to say that for them it's all in good sport.

    That Parcells fella sure is a namedropper. I lost count how many times in that one press conference he related his talks with BB. What a Chatty Cathy!

    Wouldn't it be funny if, after the game Thursday night, at the first opportunity the media has to ask him about it, BB responds with "Parcells who?"
