Todd Archer agrees that Parcells gets his way on football issues (sub. required).
But he does offer one glimpse of Jerry Jones over-ruling Parcells, atlthough it wasn't an actual "on the field" issue.
That's what I've been trying to say for weeks, despite everything else that has been said, when it comes to the players on the field, Parcells is still in charge.
There was another interesting nugget tucked away in Archer's article.
Maybe I just missed this before, but I always thought it was Jerry who passed on Moss because of the Michael Irvin stuff that immediately preceded the Moss draft. The whole time I'd been blaming Jerry for it, but it turns out it was Chan Gailey, who no one thought had any power within the organization. Maybe this was the reason Gailey was fired so quickly after amassing a respectable 18-14 record with two straight trips to the playoffs. Jerry just couldn't take the fact that Moss turned out to be so good and he had passed on him because of Gailey. Or maybe it was the two straight playoff losses, but at least they were getting into the playoffs.
