Say what you will about Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter - and there's not much good we in Baltimore would generally have to say about him - but one of Las Vegas' most feisty blackjack players does kind of get to the point. When Bill Parcells showed up at Dolphins practice Thursday, Porter observed that players moved a little "faster" and coaches coached a little "louder." In other words, everyone's job is in jeopardy in Miami. The chances that first-year coach Cam Cameron and general manager Randy Mueller will be retained appear to be next to zero.

News item: The Orioles wrap up the 2010 schedule on Sunday after an upbeat final two months of an otherwise disappointing season. My take: Congratulations to Buck Showalter for changing the mind-set of the team and creating some hope for the fans heading into the offseason. Now, we're going to find out if the front office can keep that hope alive with a productive winter. Prediction: Andy MacPhail will sign or acquire a quality power guy for the middle of the order, but the really big push won't come for another year.

NEW YORK -- Now we know why so many conflicting reports surfaced in Florida and New Jersey last week. Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Hugh Culverhouse thought he had wooed a marquee coach. But Bill Parcells, who never signed on the dotted line, decided Tampa Bay was not the place to resurrect his career.Late Saturday night, Parcells, the 50-year-old former New York Giants coach, stunned Culverhouse, 72, by rejecting a five-year, $6.5-million, 38-point guaranteed offer to assume total control of the Bucs as coach and director of football operations.

Rex Ryan is going to have to be part coach, part chemist this season. The Jets coach, whose team surprisingly came within a victory of the Super Bowl last season, let three locker-room fixtures go — Thomas Jones, Alan Faneca and Leon Washington — and made some high-profile and dicey additions, including Santonio Holmes, Antonio Cromartie, LaDainian Tomlinson and Jason Taylor. The football world will get an up-close view of what unfolds, as the Jets are the featured team on HBO's reality series "Hard Knocks."

The legal maneuvering over the future of Bill Parcells as a head coach has ended up on commissioner Paul Tagliabue's desk for the second time in a week.Barred from hiring Parcells as a coach or a "comparable position" by Tagliabue last Wednesday, the New York Jets hired him as a "consultant" and future head coach yesterday, and Parcells' longtime aide, Bill Belichick, agreed to fill the head coaching position until Parcells is free to take over.Not surprisingly, the Patriots announced last night that they will take the matter to the NFL office.

I don't think anyone knows Bill, even himself," said David Meggett, who has played for Parcells with two teams.The New England Patriots coach concedes even his wife has trouble understanding him."

They talked all week about moving on, about leaving the past behind, about adjusting to new beginnings.No, Bill Parcells said, he didn't want to revisit history. He didn't want to relive his messy divorce from the New England Patriots or his nasty fallout with Patriots owner Robert Kraft or his domineering relationship with his former Pro Bowl quarterback.Neither did Drew Bledsoe, the Pro Bowl quarterback, want to renew the sometimes public feud that has percolated since Parcells abandoned the Patriots two days after Super Bowl XXXI.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- When Tom Coughlin was the New York Giants' wide receivers coach in the late 1980s under Bill Parcells, he was a relentless man on a staff of relentless men. On Christmas, Parcells called the Giants Stadium office to leave a message on Coughlin's voice mail. The phone rang. No one would be working on Christmas.The phone rang again. Coughlin answered. He was the only coach at the office that day -- had been for hours. "I don't know if I should be proud of that story or not," he said.

NFL teams have gone 1-15 before. But how many have had their franchise quarterback get sent to Leavenworth, and then had their head coach skulk out of town before finishing his first season, leaving "Dear John" letters in his players' lockers? Yeah, give me Mike Smith. He didn't make chicken salad out of ... what Michael Vick and Bobby Petrino left behind in Atlanta. He made chicken cordon bleu. At least in Miami, when Tony Sparano was entrusted by Bill Parcells to put the pieces back together, there were pieces to put back together.

Ending his silence about the much-discussed topic, the Miami Dolphins' football operations czar not only said yesterday that he wants the six-time Pro Bowl defensive end on his team this fall, but he also tried to eliminate the perception that he deliberately snubbed Taylor during a chance encounter at the team's headquarters earlier this...

"We were messing around in the locker room waiting for the Yankees to finish their game," Papelbon told Mississippi's Hattiesburg American. "We won the AL East for the first time in 12 years. We were drinking a couple glasses of milk, and I got a little tipsy after those glasses of milk. We were like kids playing a game. I first danced in the locker room, then I took it out to the field." It sounds as if Papelbon is a candidate for Dancing with the Stars. "I'm trying to teach my wife to dance like me," Papelbon said.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Bill Parcells has never been crazy about kickers. Martin Gramatica may have changed the Dallas coach's opinion. Gramatica, signed last Monday after Parcells cut the enigmatic Mike Vanderjagt, kicked a 46-yard field goal with one second left yesterday to give the Dallas Cowboys a 23-20 win over the New York Giants and a two-game lead in the NFC East. "I've got to thank the Cowboys for giving me a second chance," said Gramatica, once a top kicker who had just one field goal in three games since 2004.
