    I would fix the dynasty that never was... Championship games in 1956, 1958, 1959, 1961, 1962, 1963... Highlighted by the crushing loss to the Colts in 1958. Only won one championship in 1956. And when that team was broken up we lost Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry and had 30 years of misery.

    Fix 1958, and win more championships in that window, the franchise's history would be quite different.

    So many things, but I will just roll with one. Tell Burress to get rid of his guns and stay his *** home with his family. The 2008 giants had the potential to be one of the best teams in franchise history.

    No, never. First miracle - we fire coaching staff, bring in George Young, draft Phil Simms. Second miracle, we win SB the next year -- FINISH.

    Bill's britches got too big for him too soon, before Young was ready to retire.

    Oh, yeah, bad decision #2 was letting Belichick get away. That was a biggy, too.
    I give credit to Young for building the team, but he deserves criticism for it's decline post-Parcells.

    Young and Parcells had a clash of egos, and Parcells deserves his share of blame for that as well. He created alot of turmoil when he abruptly resigned, but from what I remember it was a health decision.

    We hired the guy to be head coach who's job under Parcells was to signal the refs we were going to use a timeout.

    This move cost us almost a decade.

    I think the record shows that Parcells let Bellichik get away to strengthen his hand in negotiations with ownership. Then he bolted and left us with Handley. The dropoff after Parcells left made his record here as HC more impressive. It was always about BP as I recall.
    No one remembers who came in second.
