Because every conversation about the Jets organizational incompetence somehow ends up with someone saying that Parcells secretly sucks, I present to you Parcells' record as a franchise builder, using the records three years Ante-Parcells and the three years Post-Parcells.
AP (1990-1992) 9-39
PP (1997-1999) 27-21
PP Coach~Pete Carroll
AP (1994-1996) 10-38
PP (2000-2002) 28-20
PP Coach: Groh/Edwards
AP (2000-2002) 15-33
PP (2007-2009) 33-15
PP Coach: Wade Phillips
I don't include the Dolphins because he was only there for a year and a half, but it's worth noting that he's responsible for much of the foundation they currently have--Jake Long, Cam Wake, etc.
Similarly, though he hasn't been near the Cowboys in six years, his players are still the best ones on that team--Ware, Romo, Witten.
So, it really comes down to how awesome at coaching you think Wade Phillips, Pete Carroll and Al Groh/Herm Edwards are.
Well, that's the internet, man: 9 billion tough guys who secretly want to touch your pee-pee.
