Parcells and Rosenhaus have meeting at the combine (1 Viewer)

Earlier this month when Parcells was asked if he was interested in TO, he said that he wasn't gonna talk about it because Owens wasn't free yet. You're an idiot if you can't read between the lines of that. Why would TO want to go to a place in the AFC like Denver or Kansas City, when he has a great opportunity to play for his former team's arch-rivals and torch them twice a year? Ever since TO was Keyshawned (ahem cough cough) by the eagles, Jerry Jones has expressed major interest. Jones has also said many times that this offseason would be very active for the Cowboys. After all, this is the best shot that Parcells and Bledsoe will have for the rest of their careers. This year should also allow for a lot more flexibility in terms of the cap, and nobody will ever take more advantage of that than Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder.

According to Rick Gosselin (sp), the most dependable and reliable Cowboys beat writer in the DFW metroplex, Parcells is very interested in LeCharles Bentley. Also, if Vinatieri gets on the market, you can bet that Parcells would snatch him up in a New York minute. After all, Parcells is the one who originally drafted him (another of the many things that Parcells did for New England but Belichik get the credit for).

I've said it before, but the anti-Cowboy bias ridiculed it. However, I'm going to say it again. Additions like these will turn a team that lost out in the playoffs on a tiebreaker into a Super Bowl contender.

P.S.

This is probably going to ruin the credibility of everything I said above, but I have to do this anyway because I'm sick of hearing about this. If anyone wants to talk about the redskins and how the Cowboys can't get past them, just don't even bother responding to this thread. They're not going to have another lucky year with that dinosaur quarterback. As a matter of fact, the only quarterback with any talent on their roster is the one they are trying to trade. foreskin fans, enjoy the next few months while you can, because the miracle season won't happen again. Any of you who made up their minds on how to respond before even reading everything I had to say because of their anti-Cowboy bias, just take a long look at this picture beforehand:

Thats right, thats right...

Could you please expand on this. Patriot fans all understand what Parcells did for the franchise. Along with Bob Kraft he pretty much saved it. Since there was a three year gap between Tuna and BB I really have no idea what your point is.

How dare you talk like that to someone who is carrying the Tuna's jock?
 
I'm not too familiar with the Cowboys stance regarding the salary cap. Where are they getting all the money for these acquisitions (TO, Bentley, Vinatieri)? Especially if the CBA is stalled?

Most of the core for the three Super Bowl teams was drafted by Parcells. This is mainly directed at national media rather than New England fans, but everyone wants to say how much better a coach Belichik is than Parcells despite the fact that if Parcells had never left, the Patriots would have a picture very similar to the one I linked to above. Imagine if the Patriots never lost Curtis Martin.I know that doesn't expand very much, but its all I have the time for right now.

They can't geth them all. I'm guessing they make a big push for one or maybe two tops. Bentley is going to be highly sought after.

The Cowboys have plenty of cap room. As a matter of fact, the CBA progress right now is pointing torwards a much higher cap.
 
Cowboys would be much better off making a strong offer to get Eric Moulds. He may not be as good as TO, but he is still outstanding, has played well with Bledsoe before and will not be nearly as disruptive nor will he cost nearly as much.

You're very wrong. Besides Troy Brown (and AV) there wasn't one member of the offensive unit from the Parcells era that played on these Super Bowl teams. On defense none of the D lineman were Parcells guys. At LB you have Bruschi, Johnson and Willie and at DBack you have Law and Milloy who played for one championship team. Other than that none were Tuna guys. Better get the facts straight here...

i happen to agree with you, but you did just name 5/11th of the starting defense. some credit must be given to parcells. (just like some credit must be given to belichick for part of parcell's coaching success)

01 had 5 defensive starters and 1 offensive starter. Yet, the 04 team started just two in Bruschi and Willie since Law was hurt. The 03 team started 3.5 as Phifer and Johnson were both kind of starters (I guess you could say the same for 04 as well making that number 2.5). There wasn't one starter on offense in either 03 or 04 and only one in 01 (Troy Brown). Tuna was one of the biggest figures in Patriot history. Absolutely no doubt about it. Yet, by the time the Pete Carroll era was over the shadow the Tuna cast was not very large as far as what was going on on the field. His legacy had more to do with the overall stability of the franchise rather than what went on in the BB era since the team BB inherited was a mess loaded with underachievers and horrible contracts.

no doubt :goodposting: parcell's "legacy" in new england (if he has one) is that he changed the culture on that ballclub. without him it wouldn't have mattered what carroll or belichick did. just like tampa bay with tony dungy (where another coach won the super bowl) and cincinatti right now under marvin lewis (we'll see what happens)
 
unbelievable.

I suppose you'll credit the post Parcell's Jet superbowl teams with his drafting prowess too!

Parcells stopped running Martin in the only superbowl he's been to since Superbowl XXV (1991 following the 1990 season) 15 years ago.

 
Cowboys would be much better off making a strong offer to get Eric Moulds. He may not be as good as TO, but he is still outstanding, has played well with Bledsoe before and will not be nearly as disruptive nor will he cost nearly as much.
I am in 100% agreement, although I never question Parcells on a player. If he brings in somebody its because he knows he'll have that player under control. I wonder what kind of bonus TO will get with the Cowboys since it would limit what they could do if he becomes a distraction.

thats a start..Moulds is good for sure..Crayton is underrated, could have a mini-breakout season in 2006..the wr corps is good in Dallas..their secondary was horrible last year so maybe they can upgrade that too..without JJ,the running game sputtered in '05..

as a Giants can it pains me to say it, but Dallas is going to be a major force this year, they've got alot of weapons..

Can we please note here and forver that Quincy does NOT represent most Cowboys fans in his posts.

This should be self evident, as most Cowboys fans have blocked Quincy Carter from our memory.

And Q...the Redskins owned the boys this year. Suck it up and deal with it. Sometimes your rivals just kick your butt, and all you can do is hope it doesn't happen again.

:bye: The Dallas secondary was one of the top 10 units in the league last year. Don't be fooled by a couple of goofed plays Keith Davis (safety) and Roy Williams into thinking the secondary is suspect...in all actuality it is the major strength of this team. Newman, Glenn, Henry. Name 3 CB's from the same team that are better.

Henry was better than I'd thought he'd be, but he and Newman are not CB's that put the fear of God into any passing game. Glenn's barely good enough to be a nickel CB.

Roy Williams is living off of his SportsCenter rep for big hits to make Pro Bowl. In pass coverage, he flat out sucks. A good case could be made that he's the worst SS in his division in pass coverage. I even think his tackling has declined because of how much he goes for the big hit rather than wrapping up. He's simply not the well-rounded safety he was 2-3 years ago.

The secondary got a lot of grief for prime time break downs, but it ranked 11th in the NFL and played very tough when not on prime time television. They were 15th against the run.

 
:lmao:

i am a big fan of a seemingly rational post being derailed by an insane diatribe via a "PS" blasting a rival team (and their fans) in the poster's favorite team's division for no reason.

 
"foreskin fans"  :lmao:
there is something worse..... :X

Owens To Dallas Is Worst-Case Scenario

By Chuck Hixson

Date: Feb 26, 2006

If there is a deal to be made - and it doesn't appear that there is anything close to getting done - the Eagles need to make it happen to keep Owens out of Dallas. If not, once he hits free agency, the Cowboys will join Denver, Kansas City, Miami and possibly, Tampa Bay in trying to get Owens to sign with them. Even the Denver Broncos, who have been very open about their interest in Owens, appear content to take their chances through signing Owens as a free agent rather than trading for him.

Now is the time for the Eagles to be pro-active in pursuing a deal. No more simply letting Rosenhaus look for a deal - which was probably more of just him looking for which team would give the most to a free Owens rather than looking for a trade - now, the Eagles have to actively lineup bidders for Owens to see if they can get something in return and keep him out of the NFC East.
