I’ll pass on Parcells

Standard

The Miami Dolphins hired Bill Parcells to oversee their football department in December of 2007.

After two and a half years it is clear that I sure the heck wouldn’t want him running my football team.

The  Dolphins have quickly become a mess of a football team that treats people like crap.

First it was former outside linebacker Jason Taylor, second was wide receiver Dez Bryant on a predraft visit, and now it is guard Justin Smiley.

According to Ethan Skolnick of  the South Florida Sun-Sentinnel, via ProFootballTalk.com, the Dolphins still are holding on to Smiley even though everyone knows that the Dolphins will get rid of him sooner or later.

According to the report, players feel that Smiley is being held hostage and Skolnick feels that it is so that the New York Jets would then immediately sign him.

Great teams don’t care what other teams do, which includes division opponents.

In the end, the only thing the Dolphins are doing is hurting their chances to sign unrestricted free agents.

Actions speak louder than words

It was thought that the San Francisco 49ers could take another quarterback in last week’s National Football League Draft as a back up plan to quarterback Alex Smith.

However, they didn’t take one and those actions speak louder than any comment the 49ers front office could ever make to reporters.

At one point it was thought that by many outside the 49ers that Smith would never amount to anything more than another historic first overall pick bust.

However, the 49ers waited paitiently to allow him to heal from his shoulder injury and then regain his form and develop.

That finally paid off as last year Smith finally showed that he is ready to be a starter.

Now, with his development and the addition of wide receiver Tedd Ginn jr. And a couple of offensive lineman the 49ers expect big things in the years to come.

In the end, with Mike Singletary as head coach they are probably right.
