|Bill Parcells Must Still Be Working For The Jets|
Let me tell you right now that that is a load of crap. Parcells obviously believed that Henne, and subsequently the Dolphins, would not perform as well as he had hoped.
The player he had believed would be the savior for the previously mediocre Miami Dolphins did not have the preseason Parcells was hoping for, and it wasn't that he had not done well in the first few games of the regular season. It was that he didn't do well in the preseason. The four games that are supposed to be meaningless. The four games that the 2008 Detroit Lions had a perfect record during, but then went on to lose all 16 regular season games.
He wanted out of Miami because of preseason performance. He wanted out of Miami before he would be pinned with the blame of losing in the regular season.
Well that is too bad for you, Mr. Bill, because there won't be any blame to pin.
The Miami Dolphins are going to make the playoffs this year riding on the shoulders of Chad Henne and Brandon Marshall, and when they do you will be kicking yourself for leaving them.
I guarantee it
Parcells' comments couldn't have come at a much worse time, either. After all, the season opener is upon us. There is nothing better to help kick off your season than somebody with influence expressing doubt about your quarterback. An athlete doesn't want to hear that one of his superiors is not confident in his abilities a day before he plays in the season opener.
I am surprised that Parcells is so disappointed in Henne after the preseason. The PRESEASON. The only people who are allowed to be disappointed in a team/player's performance during a preseason game are paranoid fans.
The preseason means nothing, and an experienced coach like Bill Parcells should know that.
So thank you, Bill Parcells, for giving your quarterback confidence for his first ever season opener. It's great to know you think he will do well.
Nothing like starting off a season with a little bit of doubt.
