Many have wondered whether Bill Parcells will leave the Dolphins for yet another project, or just, retirement.
Whether it is this season, or next season, or the season after that, Parcells will be leaving the Fins at some point in the next couple of years.
But what some people do not get, and these are the people that start up senseless rumors, is that Parcells still has a job to oversee.
The Tuna is not someone to just abandon a job halfway through. No, he sticks to the plan, and only leaves a team, after he feels he can do no more from his position for the team.
And it just so happens that the Fins are a couple years away from being a complete mission for the Big Tuna.
Yes, the Dolphins have a young, solid nucleus to build upon, and this is what will guide both Tony Sparano and Co. through the first couple of years without Parcells. The Trifecta is finally starting to implement some veterans into their equation, and are now just waiting to capitalize off of the next couple of drafts and free agency periods, to complete their team, and propel themselves into a perennial Super Bowl contending team.
But the thing that many people fail to recognize is that the Dolphins do not have all the players that they want quite yet. This is why the Dolphins brass is trying to trade guard Justin Smiley, because he proved to not be able to overcome his injuries enough to show the Fins staff that he can be a durable player for them.
So the quest continues to solidify the offensive line.
But the Dolphins also have multiple other holes to fill as well, most on defense, but soon, the voids on offense will be noticeable as well.
As of today, the Fins are looking to add a starter capable safety, a few outside linebackers, a #1 wide receiver, a tight end that can stretch the field, a dynamic running back, and some more depth on the offensive line.
I hope that sounds like a lot of holes, because it is. The front office has done the hard part of rebuilding this franchise. They have brought in all of the necessary personnel to man the front office and coaching staff positions. Now they have to put the finishing touches on a roster, that with the proper fine tuning, can turn into something special.
Yes, I said something special. We all know it, but have been secondguessing ourselves just enough to keep it away in our Dolphins closet.
This team has some potential. Think of our front seven after two years, when the finishing touches will be put on that. The idea of that not only has us the fans salivating at it, but also the Trifecta as well, especially Parcells, who specializes in snatching up linebackers on draft day, and transforming these young boys, into freaks of nature. If you don’t believe me, just take Lawrence Taylor, and DeMarcus Ware for examples.
The fact that the facet of Parcells game, the front seven, and the trenches, are not complete is enough in itself to convince me that the Tuna will stay on with the Dolphins until his job is complete.
His job may be almost complete, but not nearly complete enough for Parcells to rocket out of Miami as quickly as he came in.
So let the rumors come. But just remember, they do not mean anything unless Parcells does in fact leave the Fins for some other life pursuit. But that day will not be here for at least two more years. It’s still raining Tuna in Miami!
