    Well if you're from Joisey then okay, equal number of wins and losses does not make a .500 coach.

    East Coast politics makes more sense than math.

    Parcell's overall record as a coach is over .500

    (Didn't think I'd have to explain that one..)

    (TT's is 12-36 though...explain that one!)

    Explanation

    You dislike TT so much you like to compare him to a HEAD COACH

    No..

    The explanation is that McCarthy went 8-8 this year and some people here with Green n' Gold glasses on have him going to the HOF, and are comparing him to a HOF coach...and taking shots at the HOF coach and disrespecting him to boot....

    Totally out of line (and reality), imo.....

    What were your predictions for this team?? 8-8, worse or better? Probably a safe bet you picked worse..

    I didnt see anyone saying he is going to be a hof coach? They just like the direction this team is going..

    Before Wolf hired Rhodes I wanted Bill here and was ticked he didnt come here..But now? Nope I dont want him..

    As someone said he seemed to have lost his fire for the game..

    I did not see anyone disrespecting Bill, but then again I dont have an issue with Mike Mc..

    By this logic, a GM should never hire a first-time coach, because a first-time coach, by definition, hasn't accomplished anything. Unless you're counting what their teams won when they were assistants, but it's often hard to tell what their contributions were. Nobody ever wanted Sherm Lewis as their head coach.

    Obviously Parcells is a very accomplished coach, and a first-ballot Hall of Famer, but at his age, I think it would be too much of a gamble for any team to hire him unless maybe they had nothing at all going for them. McCarthy is off to a decent start in GB, so I think it would be foolish to dump him for such an old coach.

    I think Parcells is done. I think he's burned out.
    We have a fresh new guy (MM) so why not give him a chance before tossing him? He might be the NEXT Parcells, and will probably last alot longer then a coach thats 65 already.
