A look back on Parcells Talk 2012

Looking back now, how big of a difference do you think Parcells would have made Considering how many close games we lost, I have to think we would have at least made the playoffs.

Seems like just yesterday, Parcells talk we hardly knew ye

Well,..looking back, couldn't have hurt. We didnt make the post season so, a move like that could have been an improvement. Could have let the coaches focus on their jobs and not worrying about also trying to be the HC.

but..

It may have meant 2 more wins, that would have gotten us into playoffs

I honestly don't think it would have made a difference.

but that is just me. There would have still been a lot of confusion on defense in the beginning and Drew would have still pressed on some throws I think.

I'm just glad this season is over

maybe, but I think our Oline would have played way better in the 1st 4 games. They hurt us just as much as the defense IMO

Good point. The 4th quarter of that Chiefs game really stands out. Strief had a helluva time trying to block his man.

yep, our defense was playing OK that game until our Offense couldn't get them off the field. I also remember the Redskins planting brees over and over again

both our offense and defense struggled out of the gate. A lot of the improvement later was attributed to Kromer returning to OL duties.

Had he never left, i think at a minimum our O is better and we win a few. with Parcells in house, that might be worth another W or 2.

Huge mistake not bringing in someone for this season.

This. We beat KC and GB and get in the playoffs.

So at 9-7, we would have gotten in over the 10-6 Vikings and Bears?

We should have beaten GB and KC as it is. With BP we should get at least one more win, maybe two.

I doubt if we'd have made the NFCCG though

Probably would have swept the falcons also.

I consider the Saints record this year to be 7-8. The Carolina game was meaningless in this discussion since we were eliminated.

I think we beat Washington, Kansas City, and Carolina x2 with Parcells

Perhaps Parcells is smart as advertised and wanted none of the blame for a shitty 7-9 season?

Having one interim coach like Vitt for whole year would have been best course of action

If we split 2 and 2 instead of 0 and 4, maybe the team doesnt hang it up in the second half against carolina and we have a shot at 10-6. The would have gotten us into the playoffs.
