Parcells was certainly instrumental in the Pats rebirth and modern success. Yes, at some point he must get in. This is objective fact.
But far be it from me to reject the right of any fan to explore their own opinions and dislikes! :)
What is objective fact? Is it "Parcells was certainly instrumental in the Pats rebirth and modern success" or is it "at some point he must get in". If the former, then I will admit that he had a turnaround, but so did the 1986 team. You can argue this point. If it is the latter, then that is your OPINION and certainly not "objective FACT".
The only objective FACT is that he negotiated with another team, our division rival no less, when he should have given total concentration to the superbowl.
Listen we all hate the fact that he did that but he did bring in guys like:
Milloy, Law, McGinest, Bruschi, Johnson, Brown all of which without we might not be talking about SB's around here. He also took over from Dick and installed a sense of team, order, and a work ethic to get things done. He did as much for this team as any coach not named BB. We can be bitter about how it all ended as much as we want but lets not pretend he didn't start the rock rolling that eventually lead to our SB victories.
No question that Parcells brought his name and his coaching to Foxboro but if I understand how things worked back then I'm not entirely sure he actually played a role in bringing those guys in. My understanding of it is that one of the major reasons he left is that he didn't have much of a say in who the Pats drafted. I'm open to recalibration if I'm wrong here.
He had some say but was not the gm here. It is why he left.
