And now... missed opportunities
Jason Taylor made it to the finals of Dancing With the Stars, but that apparently doesn't sit too well with the new management athis day job, as a defensive end for the Miami Dolphins (to wit, football genius and famed all-around grouch Bill Parcells). The nominal complaint is that he missed a few "optional" minicamps, which he almost certainly didn't need --- he's not a rookie, knows the game, and is staying in shape. But all around, there are rumors that the real problem is that dancing just doesn't show the kind of macho that's expected of football players.
Well, except for touchdown celebrations. And lately, celebrations of a sack. Which means Parcells is missing an opportunity. If Taylor added some professional choreography after his sacks, which were just about the only good thing Miami fans had to look last year, it might distract their attention from all the other stuff happening on the field. Which, given the state of the team (which lost its first 13 games last season), could only be good news for team management.
