Bill Parcells is set to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The massive one they call the Tuna (most affectionately so, some derisively) says he regrets the way things ended in New England with the Patriots new owner Bob Kraft, according to Yahoo Sports:
Former NFL coach Bill Parcells recently told USA Today that he regrets the way his relationship ended with the New England Patriots as he prepares for his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction.
Parcells, who will be inducted at Canton, Ohio on Aug. 3, left the team on bad terms with owner Bob Kraft after guiding it to the Super Bowl in January 1997.
“I regret leaving New England,” Parcells said. “Had we done things differently. … I had a good young team there. I hated to leave that team, because I knew what we could do.

In 2012, the Cowboys acquired cornerback Brandon Carr in free agency and Morris Claiborne via the draft so they have corners who can play man coverage.
However, in the offseason, they gutted their 3-4 defense run by Rob Ryan and went out and hired Cover 2 guru Monte Kiffin as their defensive coordinator.
Carr and Claiborne are not a good fit for the Cover 2 scheme, which will...

Dallas defensive end Anthony Spencer is likely to play a second straight season under a one-year contract after talks with the Cowboys failed to produce a long-term deal.
Spencer's agent, Jordan Woy, said Tuesday that both sides are happy even without a deal. Spencer said earlier this month he wasn't worried about his contract situation. He can't sign a multiyear deal...
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cowboys and Anthony Spencer’s agent Jordan Woy have broken off contract talks.
I used the term "broken off" for Anthony Spencer talks. A better way to say it is both sides are fine with a one-year deal at this point.

Bill Parcells isn't the kind of man to admit many (if any) regrets publicly. The former New England Patriots coach may wear his New Jersey roots on his sleeve but not so his personal feelings.
That's why it was uncharacteristic for Big Tuna to admit that he left the Patriots after their forgettable Super Bowl XXXI loss after a power struggle with owner Robert Kraft and could...
The Dallas Cowboys added a defensive tackle to their 90-man roster on Monday, according to DallasCowboys.com. Jerome Long, a seventh-round draft pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012, takes the open spot that was created when the Cowboys released defensive end Anthony Hargrove on Thursday.

Bill Parcells, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 3, has one haunting memory from his coaching career: leaving the New England Patriots and the way he handled things with owner Robert Kraft after the 1996 season.
Gang Green fans have endured many a roller coaster season over the years, and 2000 proved to be no exception. Preseason coaching turmoil gave way to solid play for much of the year, before a late season collapse kept the Jets out of the playoffs.
On January 3, 2000, Bill Parcells resigned as Jets’ head coach following an 8-8 1999 season. Parcells, who...
