I love it. He is an old school coach. Quoted from Parcells "You know, when I was a young coach, there were people like Chuck Noll, Chuck Knox and Tom Landry who were there for me." That list is a whose who of Football greatness.
I am not sure why I am excited by the idea of this 72 year old man coaching again but I am. He is a living link to the past in football. He should have been a first ballot hall of famer (that discussion is for another place). I always had the feeling he truly enjoyed being a coach, being around the guys, being involved with the game.
I think the year long suspension for Payton was fair but you have to let a team have a head coach of some sort. I think Parcells is the perfect guy for the job. A one year gig, make some money, get to coach again short term. It is a win-win.
