Unlike Tiki Barber, we are sure Bill Parcells would get a rousing ovation at the New Meadowlands Stadium on Sunday as the team unveiled its new Ring of Honor. If he showed up.
Unfortunately, Parcells has a prior commitment and won’t be there. (The Dolphins play Monday night, so that’s not the problem.) We’re not sure where Parcells will be Sunday or in 2011.
Despite reports in Miami that Parcells will be hanging out for a while in his “consultant” role with the Dolphins, Parcells admitted Thursday on a conference call he didn’t know what’s next for him.
“I’m not one to sit around,” Parcells said via Bob Glauber of Newsday.
Our Parcells translator says that means: “I’m open for business.”
Or as Glauber put it: “After listening to Parcells’ vague references about his future, I’d say there’s about a zero percent chance he stays in Miami.”
And if you think we’re making a mountain out of a molehill, you’ve been asleep for the last 20 years.
