Bill Parcells has coached some of the biggest organizations in the NFL: the New York Giants and Jets, the Dallas Cowboys, the New England Patriots. And now he is headed to the NFL’s Hall of Fame.
So FOXSports.com’s Peter Schrager asked an interesting question during a conference call.
“If you had the chance to start your NFL team with any player you’ve ever seen, coached, coached against,” Schrager asked, “who would be that one player in NFL history you’d start your team with?”
While most might start with a franchise quarterback, Parcells went a different route.
“There are priority positions in this game, quarterback is one of those, so I consider that,” Parcells began, via NFL.com. “But if you’re pinning me down — I’m a little prejudiced – I think I’d take Lawrence Taylor.”
“Because I know he’s going to be there every Sunday and try his best to win, for sure,” Parcells explained.
Lawrence Taylor and Bill Parcells won two Super Bowls together with the New York Giants. Still, he might be the only one picking Taylor to start a NFL franchise with.
Asked Parcells who he’d start his team with if he had the choice of any NFL player in the game’s history. His pick? Lawrence Taylor.
