NY Media wants Bill Parcells to help find new GM.
Bill Parcells suggested as New York Jets savior
- By Gregg Rosenthal
It was only a matter of time. With a team in the New York area ready to make major changes,
Bill Parcells' name was bound to pop up.
The New York Post published a piece Wednesday imploring New York Jets owner Woody Johnson
to call upon his "old friend" Parcells to help the Jets find a new general manager.
The piece was not sourced with inside information and it said that Parcells did not respond to a
text request for comment. (Then again, the request took place on Christmas.) But we've been
down this road too many times to assume that a story about Parcells was written in a vacuum.
"(Johnson) has leaned on Tannenbaum and Ryan on all football decisions for the last four years.
Clearly, they cannot decide their own fates," Brian Costello writes.
That's a fair point, even if Parcells would be an odd choice to help out. Parcells has a history
with Tannenbaum. The same article somehow cites Parcells' work in Miami and appointment of
GM Jeff Ireland as a positive.
A report surfaced this week suggesting Tannenbaum could keep a job in the organization, even
if he doesn't keep personnel powers. This isn't a huge surprise. Remember, their last personnel
leader Terry Bradway also still works for the team.
The article helps to point out the lack of quality personnel decision makers within the Jets
organization. This is a big moment for owner Woody Johnson, and there's not a lot of reason
to believe he can make the correct decisions to right this front office ship.
Woody and Parcells a no- no ?
= there is a big problem with that scenario-- Woody and Parcells do not have a good relationship.
