Bill Parcells has NOT spoken with Ross

It was "reported" Wednesday by the NFL Network's Michael Lombardi that Dolphins Consultant Bill Parcells had spoken to owner Stephen Ross and convinced him to retain coach Tony Sparano.

I am reporting today that Parcells has NOT spoken with Ross and obviously has therefore NOT convinced the owner about anything relative to retaining or firing Sparano.

It is logical to believe that a conversation between Parcells and Ross may happen once the season is over. But the season is not over.

It is logical to believe Parcells might back his proteges Sparano and GM Jeff Ireland. But has that happened yet?

No.

hopefully ross will never listen to parcells opinion on anything. he only cares about his legacy;not the dolphins!

Armando,

Did you mean Parcells spooned with Ross in an atempt to save SpOrano's job?

Would that be against the NFL's personal conduct policy?

Greg,

Couldn't agree with you more.

I bought into the Trifecta hoopla lock, stock and barrel.

3 years later I feel "violated".

BP DESERV OUR RESPECT FOR WHAT HE DID FOR FINS,IT'S NOT HIS FAULT HE DIDN'T SIGN ON PAT WHITE' PICK AND B.MARSHALL SIGNING .

Aloco,

I hope you had a good holiday.

You can respect BP all you want.

If the King gives up his Kingdom, he can take all his court jesters with him.

aloco. bp ruined/decimated the gulf of mejico~ with 200 million barrels of raw crude oil.. what r u talk'n 'bout huh.?.lol

BP was NEVER the coach of the Miami Dolphins. He was a GM with training wheels on and two puppets indebted to him for giving them both the opportunity of a life time. Hard to give any of the three a passing grade. BP the GM was no where near as savvy as BP the game day coach. His contribution was therefore negligible.

Dissection of a Play - Miami/Detroit
4th QTR, 10:30 to play, 24-17 Miami, Miami in red zone, 2nd and Goal from the 15yd line (penalty by Long forced team back, 3 straight previous run plays)

1st mistake - Now it's an obvious passing down, defense is set correctly. Why not pass on 1st and maybe catch them off-balance?

2nd mistake - Bess motions across line to left side, hike and from the moment he takes the snap, Henne stares ONLY to the left, pinpointing Bess going up the seam. He doesn't even shrug a look into the other direction (so safeties know which way to shift).

3rd mistake - Henne HAS Bess up the seam. He missed the same pass on an earlier play. Throw it in the running path of the receiver, and he'll catch it and block out the defender with his body (done all the time in the NFL, just not by Henne).

4th mistake - Defender is trailing Bess, but covering 2 players (Hilliard is check down under Bess, running an out). Hilliard here is as open as you can be in the NFL. Maybe 4-5 steps from a defender, or more.

5th mistake - It'd only be for 2-3 yards, but instead of making that pass, Henne throws outside and low to a RB, but regardless, uncatchable nonetheless.

Result of Play - Missed opportunity, poor decision-making, poor execution.

That particular play, at THAT time, in THAT game, indicts Tony Sparano, Dan Henning, and Chad Henne all at once.

Court is Adjourned.

ODINESYE.... H.NEW YEAR ....WE HAVE TO LOOK AT 2 ITEMS;


1-YORK OF THE 49'S WANTS TO TALK TO BP RE BAAKE THE CANDID FOR GM WHO USE TO WORK FOR TUNA W/THE JETS.

2-JOSH.M COULD BE VERY WELL THE NEXT OC FOR FINS .

ThanX 4 doing your job for us

and sorry bout the New World Order, continuous onslaught of chemtrails & HAARP created steered and stalled severe weather

the sheeple are only like scrambling ignorant cockroaches under the foot of a Stomping, Mad, Out of Control Psychopathic Giant

have a HAARPy day

:(

Not sure if I believe you when Lombardi and Adam Schefter reported that Tony is safe.

Commentator than says (paraphrasing):
I get what Tony Sparano and Dan Henning are thinking. Get the lead up to 10 with 10 min to go. Points haven't exactly been "easy" to come by today, but I would have liked to see them go down the field. HELP Chad Henne develop as a QB, but making a key throw in a key situation.

Could we have said it any better?

THE ( JACKPOT ) , THE BEST MOVIE J.STEWART HAS MADE IS ON FMC

home, anything on ross selling the phins to kim jong ill 2..lol

Financial collapse could turn the NFL on its head

Much like the global financial collapse orchestrated by the New World Order in the end of days starting in 2011

HARRPy new year, everyone!

U get that, Huh?

:(

I wonder how Armando knows? Should we believe him?

Armando is your God, here

Believe him or
Be Gone

Your Honor,

May I impart some mitigating circumstances?

Henning 155 years old and set in his ways with over 100 years of NFL experience. No excuses-guilty as charged.

Sporano is 50 years old, with nearly a decade of NFL experience, he was entrusted to lead this franchise. No excuses-guilty as charged.

Henne, on the other hand your Honor, is only 25 years old. He is, ah, young and......um.........ah...........

Never mind your Honor, hang the lot of them!

It is, also, logical to believe that Mr. Ross can make his own decision after listening to everyones opinion...

home, anything on ross selling the phins to kim jong ill 2..lol

Posted by: 2 watt | December 30, 2010 at 09:38 AM

Believe kim jong ill 2 is interviewing for the head coaching position
Make no mistake this lil tyrant is demanding & ruthless
However he wants total control over all teams in the AFC East, therefore guaranteeing victory
Seems kim jong ill 2 just doesn`t get it
So other plans are in the works for his fate

Believe Sparano & Ireland & ... thats right
Chad Henne are all still with us next season

Go Phins!

Odinseye
Hope 2011 will find u & your family doing well :)

Regardless of the Cowboys record...they are loaded with talent...I think Jason Garrett got impatient and wanted that HC job and tanked the offense to start the season.....


I say all that to say this...keep Ireland....he seems to know talent...Sporano/Henning MUST GO!!!!

HENNE can sty and sit the bench for another year or two behind a Vet...and compete with a draftee in the future

i CANT BELIVE EVERYONE WANTS THIS GUY FIRED. I DONT GET IT GO LOOK AT ALL THE OTHER TEAMS THAT NEED A QB. aLMOST OF ALL THEM ALL OF THEM ARE WAY BELOW 500. IF CHAD PENNINGTON HAD STARTED THIS YEAR AND STAYED HEALTHY THIS TEAM IS IN THE PLAYOFFS. tHEY NEEDED A QB NOT TO TURN THE BALL OVER. lOOK THE FINS HAVE THE 2ND LOWEST PENT. AGIAINEST THEM. THAT IS PRODUCT OF THE COACH. aND DONT FOEGET WHEN THE RIFECTA TOOK THIS TEAM OVER THEY WHERE 1-15 NOW THERE A 500 TEAM WITH A BAD YA NOT AVG. BUT BAD QB. SO STOP HATING AND START ASKING FOR KEVIN KOLB.

Armando got a hard on when he heard York was talking to Parcells.

It's possible he found a little nugget while digging in. Thus finding out that Parcell has not spoken to Ross.

I think, but I'm not sure, that Parcells would have needed to get Ross's permission to speak with Ross.

Whatever the case may be, Armando sounds pretty adamnant on the issue.

I concur with Home:

Ireland, Sparano & Henne will all be on the team next year and my choice for OC is:

Jason Garrett

THE COWBOYS OFFENSE DIDN'T TANK THE SEASON ,THE DEFENSE DID AND THAT'S WHY THE EX FIN PIZZA GUY PASQUALONI GOT FIRED AS THE COWBOYS DC.


PASQULONI'S CARMA WAS THE REASON FOR WADE PHILPS AND GARRETT FIRING

Agreed...Pasqualoni is a fraud and should go back to NY and open a pizzaria

Home is right on this one. Everyone comes back, hopefully there will be a season to come back to.

SORRY KRIS , I READ YOUR POST AGAIN AND I THINK YOU MEANT AT THE START OF THE SEASON .

bobby...there is no way the owners will lock out the players.

Too damn much money at stake!

Duh, I meant spoken to York.

Homes, Thanks and a Happy Holiday to you and your family as well.

I hope you and the Mayans are wrong about this 2012 stuff. My ex girlfriend has been brainwashing my two youngest sons. My 6 year old came up to me on Christmas and told me he was going to be dead in two years.

It was the saddest thing I've ever seen and pissed me off to no end.

THANK GOD I finally have primary custody of the both of them, and to think she's supposed to be the educated one!


Dolphins should keep Sparano, he is still learning the finer points of being a head coach in the nfl, but his energy, emotion, and ability to motivate most players is what the Dolphins didn't have with previous coaches. Cam Cameron and Wannstad were lifeless on the sidelines and always looked confused. Sparano will continue to improve both in game planning and making decisions and changes during the game, those things come with experience. I don't see any coaches out there to hire which would be an upgrade. Cowher has been out of things for too long, Gruden had his super bowl year, but after that his teams struggled to compete. Keep Sparano, let Henning retire and hire a new offensive coordinator, improve offensive line, bring in competition for Henne, hire new special teams coach, improve special teams, then I think the team will be highly competitive next year.

odin, silly of you to think of you that a woman would be educated.

I heard the military had the capability to modify the weather for weather warfare, and was experimenting here in the U.S.A. I was told they were causing hurricanes, drought, earthquakes, floods, forest fires, lightning, tsunamis and other things like experimenting with mind control. I refused to believe it. How foolish I was. I soon stumbled upon the information on an Air Force website.

HAARP (High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is the American military’s plan to manipulate the world’s ionosphere, and can create earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis, jam all global communications, tsunami,disrupt weather systems, interfere with migration patterns, disrupt human mental processes, negatively affect your health and disrupt the upper atmosphere.

In the video Dr. Nick Begich discusses HAARP. HAARP technology is the ultimate radio frequency microwave weapons system disguised as a research instrument. Publicity gives the impression that HAARP is an academic project with the goal of changing the ionosphere to improve communications for our own good. I can see how it could be used in much more sinister ways, and according to U.S. military documents — HAARP aims to “exploit the ionosphere for Department of Defense purposes”.

Thanks Homes

This was wrong on here part
Very Wrong
Never scare the children
Esp @ that age
Perhaps give them the info when they r bout 16 yrs old and let them do their own research and decide

For the Love of God, man
Most Adults cannot wrap their heads around this info

Sorry to here that Odin
She should be ashamed of herself

Peace
Home

Odin, nobody should use a child as a weapon. That right there really is child abuse. Sorry to hear your ex is that vindictive. Best of luck

I AM STARTING TO THINK THIS REPORT IS TRUE ABOUT BP TALKING TO ROSS TO KEEP SPARANO ..... MANY REPORTS SAYING SAME THING.

Will Bill Belichick do what most coaches would do and rest as many key guys as possible with the top seed wrapped up? Or will he turn what might be the final game of the Tony Sparanao era into another lopsided blowout?

Can the Dolphins go 7-1n the road?

Will Cam Wake be stuck on Home`s preseason posted prediction of 14 sacks this season or will Tommy be tossed to the ground like a rag doll?

If it is true I wonder what Parcells promised Ross? Maybe he will step back into the picture and actually "earn" some of the money he is being paid?

Armando doesn't know what he's talking about. The report isn't just fabriacted. He's just pissed because he's been scooped again. For now they'll keep Sparano but after the NE game that may change.

NHFINSFAN

Saw what happened @ Sugarloaf ski resort
Have skied there 3 times
Like it there

Stay safe

HAARPy Holidays to U & ur Family

Let's get this season over with already.

I don't want Parcells to earn anything. He has done enough damage with his outdated football philosophy.

Any coach not from his coaching tree would blow this offense up with the exception of Bess, Marshall & Long.

Thanks BobbyD.

I'm heading back up north this afternoon with most of their things.

The first semster ends at the end of January. They'll be moving in with me permanently then.

Talk about a change of culture! Dad will be toning down the "Man Cave" parties quite a bit :)

No more advice from Bill Parcells. I am a Parcells supporter but he did his worst work in Miami. He left Miami a team that isn't complete or competitive.

Miami has spent many resources on Parcells foundation spots which is offensive and defensive lines and Miami isn't set on either line. Miami lost to Browns, Bills and Lions all at home therefore they are a joke and not competitive.

Parcells might want to say something and Ross may on him for his opinion but Ross should go with the obvious trend that Miami won't sell out because bad, boring teams never do and that goes for any city and team in the NFL.

Andy NJ, how did you enjoy our big snowstorm?

Miami is set quite nicely on the d-line. They have Merling & Langford signed for 1 more year. Odrick will be back next year along with Starks. If they can sign Mcdaniel & Soliai back longterm, & re-up Merling or Langford next year, this is the one area of the team that isn't a redo.

O-line, COMPLETELY different story

its in bellicheks best interest to keep sparano in miami. pats coach is sharp;could beat fins this week but not by much. a lopsided score would ensure sparano's demise. bellichek also suggests miami give henne more time(like phil simms got in ny). seems all this would benefit the pats dynasty for years to come. sparano is the 4th best coach in our afc east div. he's really lost on gameday. nolan is the only reason this season wasnt a complete disaster!

I agree with Greg z. Morono is in way over his head as a HC.

Joe S,

Yeah we didn't get hammered too bad in South NJ, outside Philly but enough to annoy me bro.

Yeah I can agree the D-Line is solid and that's pretty much what you get out of a 3-4 D and what you want. So I can back off that criticism without a fight. I like Langford he is a solid. I never saw Merling do balls except for the Jets game and Favre. But a lot of people are digging Solia these days and I am starting to feed into it too. Starks is good at DE not NT. If Odrick does anything next year it could be a plus for Miami.

And the O-line needs to 2 new legit starting caliber players at a minimum.

Andy NJ, sellouts? Lol, sorry bro but Miami could have a team like NE and the only reason they would sell out is the fans of opposing teams buying tickets. This is THE worst fan base for all sports. The Marlins have won 2 World Series in 13 years and they struggle to get 13 thousand per game. Just a fact down here

If Ross listens to Blowcells again we can look forward to more 7-9 or worse seasons. Blowcells only cares about his wallet and his bloated legacy!!

This guy Phil Hendrie was such an inspiration to Home and modern day blogging

Home at one point had 7 avatars on the Sun Sentinel, mostly faces of mob members, Mob Boss Tony Soprano, the Godfather,Al Pacino ,Tommy DeVito(Joe Pesci)from Goodfellas,Jimmy Conway (Robert Deniro)from Goodfellas, as well as the Scarecrow from WOZ aka "If I Only Had a Brain" & of course a photo of a fiery nuclear explosion aka "i feel fine"
All these characters would talk to each other many times seeming simultaneous complete w picture avatar

Have anyone of U ever heard the hilarious Phil Hendrie radio show, as he does all the voices of radio host,celebrity or guest and also he is the fictitious outrageous callers arguing w real callers

Outstanding talent Phil Hendrie

Philip Stephen Hendrie is an American radio personality. He is best known as the host of The Phil Hendrie Show, a comedy talk radio program that is syndicated throughout North America on Talk Radio Network. While The Phil Hendrie Show became renowned for its unique and controversial guests, those guests are not real people at all. They are fictional characters created and voiced by Hendrie himself.

Hendrie has performed voices on the animated FOX sitcoms King of the Hill and Futurama, and as I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E. and the Terrorist in Team America: World Police. In Spring of 2006, he had a supporting role in the live-action NBC sitcom Teachers.

Hendrie moved from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Miami, Florida where he further developed his show. The show then moved to KFI in Los Angeles, California and was nationally syndicated to approximately 100 radio stations

Been fun blogging w U All

have a HAARPy new year

Sincerely
Home (i think)

I wish someone would make up their minds on what the fins are going to do. Geez just like the season its always a rollercoaster. Wouldn't it be something if Sparano was fired for Jason Garrett. I'm not sure if this would be better or worse. I just pray that Mike Nolan stays whoever is coaching. Mr. Nolan the fin fans support you please dont leave us. Our team needs you LOL

What did Parcells do in Miami that would make Ross listen to him? If I'd be Ross and I'd have Parcells calling me, I'd tell him: "You've got the wrong number dude. Sorry."

Listen, it's not MY money BUT if I was forced, and yes Ross is forced to pay Parcells, I would want him to do something, anything to at least work. I'm sure no one here would just want to give away money to someone and get nothing in return. For that reason alone I can see Ross wanting Parcells to do something for his money.

BobbyD12,

The Marlins are a different story because you can't follow the players because once they hit free agency they are gone. But I know you're right about opposing teams but the Dolphins do sell out when they are good for whatever reason opposing teams or not.

You reporters are a joke. It must be a power trip. From my perspective it's he said, she said. I'll let you reporters fiight for who wears the pants in your catfight. Put yourself in the fan's shoes and give us a source, otherwise you are no better than the clown you are refuting. Then go back and do your job with some professionalism and integrity.

BobbyD12

Fan base? I agree. I live right outside Philly and they are no better. When the team is good they go to the games when they suck they don't. Andy Reid has kept the Eagles pretty much in the thick of things for over a decade because he is a good coach and had a QB.

"T" i mean "Home"
I remember the good days of that creative blogging.
Miss your lunacy and obvious extreme talent in blogging and getting your messages out.
Without u "T", Paulie Walnuts would have never been created.
By the way "T", i took care of that thing, huh!
Thanks for the memories, have a great New Year.
