Whatever a person may think about Bill Parcells, there is no argument about one thing -- the man got results. He took three different NFL franchises from the scrap heap to championship games. After winning a pair of Super Bowls as the boss of the Giants, Parcells further demonstrated his skill as a coach by taking the New England Patriots to the Super Bowl and getting the New York Jets to first place and the AFC championship game just two years after the Jets finished the 1996 season with a 1-15 record.

Parcells' story is told from the archives of the New York Daily News.
