Key NFL Question No. 7: Will Bill Parcells Get Things Turned Around in Miami?
No, at least not right away.
Parcells hasn't lost his touch. He didn't win a playoff game in Dallas but he handed a Super Bowl-caliber team to successor Wade Phillips. He got young quarterback Tony Romo ready to play and put Romo into the lineup at the right time. He's still a good pick to oversee a rebuilding project, and the chances are that he'll get the Dolphins at least back to respectable status within a few seasons.
But there's a long, long way to go in Miami. The Dolphins will have an untested young quarterback. Parcells picked an offseason fight with veteran defensive end Jason Taylor that probably could have been avoided, and it will be next to impossible for the Dolphins to get much in return if they trade the former NFL defensive player of the year in the coming weeks. Winning four or five games this season would be a triumph for Parcells's hand-picked coach, Tony Sparano.
