Early season's holiday card to Brain Billick from Miami fans- odds are I think, Baltimore would have scored if they went for it instead of kicking a tying fg. Even if you dispute that, why on green's earth would you play for OT when you are that close to winning from inside the one and you may never see the ball again because of a coin flip? To boot, Baltimore had a 4-9 record w/ no shot at the playoffs. What is there to lose? What Billick did makes zero sense- its as though he felt sorry for the Dolphins' predicament and wanted to give them a second chance to muster a win at long last.

Having said that.....Cleo Lemon to Greg Camarillo...you can't stop it, you can only hope to contain it!

Default Bill Parcells!!!!

Christmas has come early...especially if you are a Miami Dolphins fan.
First, we get our first win of the season...
Next, we get Bill Parcells to run our team...
Things come in three's!

Default So what's the third?

I guess the third thing would be Parcells CLEANING HOUSE on all of the current coaching staff!

This guy is great! He's my second favorite coach. The first being Jim Mora, of course.

"No offense, but what we call J*P plays, you know-surprise things..."

I can't wait until he gets back on the podium! He's especially great after a loss!

When does he start?

I'm happy for the 'fins. A 0-16 season would've been very humiliating.

Parcells is a good coach because players know not to mess with him.

Every team that he has been with has improved.
I am willing to have Tuna with my 'Fins for a few seasons.
The changes are obvious...
Continuing to rebuild the O-Line.
Start to rebuild the defense, especially at DT.
A secondary that can be counted on and is not injury prone.
Another WR.
And, the most obvious, a new QB.
Taking care of both lines is the most important priority to me.

Although you could debate it for a very long time, I think Parcells has taken over losing teams and turned them into winning teams. He might not have created dynasty-type runs of winning Super Bowls, but has created winning teams.

In the past, his strength was that his genius has tremendous impact because he was there, in the trenches, on the sideline, in the locker room, etc. In this case though, during the season, his genius may have to travel from the box to the sidelines. I think, if given the opportunity, he'll succeed.

I'd agree about the Tuna. He commands respect and gets things in order. Maybe that's his niche. Fixing wayward teams.

His success was obvious with the Giants. You could say he helped put the Pats in the right direction before their recent Dynasty; remember the Super Bowl XXXI? Do you remember the 1-15 laughing stalk of the AFC? In about 6 years, Parcells took this team back to the Super Bowl. A new ownership that was very anti-Parcells and the addition of The Hoody, and you've got yourself and NFL dominating team.

A stint with the Jets, then off to Dallas. Now, I think that the Bum's Son is the best thing since sliced bread; but don't you have to give a little bit of the credit to the Tuna?
