08:02 AM ET 12.12 | Jason Taylor found his way back into the news, courtesy a wide-ranging interview on Tuesday. On coach Joe Philbin, who has gone 5-8 in his uneven first season in Miami: "I think he's doing a good job. It's so tough to tell on these guys early. The problem with the NFL these days, whether it's ownership, fans, players, everybody lacks patience." Taylor seemed to be a buyer of the Dolphins' future, but clearly, some of his wounds from the past still have not healed. He remains "not the biggest Bill Parcells fan," Taylor said of the Dolphins' former football czar who dumped the popular pass-rusher not once, but twice. Taylor blasted Parcells for his "lack of building for the future, and the lack of commitment on his part."

Hold out your hand, Jason. Show us how many Super Bowl Rings you have.

As he loses his grip on being relevant....soon he'll be a distant memory. It's over Jason!

If you're going to rip The Tuna, Jason, it's best to avoid Sea World.

Taylor blasted Parcells for his "lack of building for the future, and the lack of commitment on his part."

And with that, Taylor went to Washington and was a star.

Yeah, Taylor was Mr. Commitment when he was wearing burgundy.

Don't remember if he was always leaving or he was always pushed out

Dance on Jason!!!

As a Dallas fan, I wish the Tuna had stayed a year or two longer in Big D - as he helped to restock the empty cupboards with some decent talent. I still say if Tony doesn't drop that snap in the rain - and Dallas beats Seattle - Bill stays on in Dallas.

What else is new...Parcells is a mercenary....he's left every organization (except the Giants because he only coached there) in a salary cap shambles....great coach...lousy GM.....

Yeah - and then he took his skills to the Jets and was about the same.

I concur. Highly overrated as a builder, ditto for Fats Holmgren.

And you just know he isn't in it for the long haul.

It seems he was pretty up-front about that with the Fish. They knew they had a short-term lease instead of a purchase.

Agreed. Although in his defense, he does seem firmly committed to the buffet table at Golden Corral.

Wish I'd thought of that!

He's right.

December 13, 2012  09:46 AM ET

But is it up to him to say it ?
