They set themselves up for failure last year and that wasn't a horrid team. When he left they had a good D, and good OL, a great ST, and a nice run game. He actually turned them into a PO team before handing it over.
What are you talking about?
The first thing Parcells did when he came to the Dolphins was hire Ireland as the GM. Parcells was the Head of Football Operations. After Ireland, he hired Sparano to be the head coach.
Those are Parcells' guys. They continued to run the team according to his vision.
