Having exceeded his dream of merely "being part of the Giants' family and tradition" by coaching the team to its only two Super Bowl championships, Bill Parcells resigned Wednesday, declaring it was simply time for him to move on. Parcells, 49, said he has no plans aside from resting and "catching some fish." The New Jersey native had a year left on a four-year contract that would have paid him $800,000 next season.

Ray Handley was simply the wrong coach at the wrong time. George Young put Handley in an almost no-win situation 19 months ago when selecting him to replace Bill Parcells as coach of the aging New York Giants, who were coming off their second Super Bowl title in five years. The general manager fired Handley after the Giants compiled a 14-18 mark and failed to make the playoffs in the first two seasons of the post-Parcells era. "I think it had to do with progress and team chemistry," Young said.

Bill Parcells grew up a few miles from the swamp that is now the foundation for Giants Stadium. Bill Parcells motivated players in a way New Yorkers understood. He spent a week in the face of nose tackle Jim Burt before a game against the Redskins in 1985 and then, with Burt playing like a man obsessed, the Giants ended a two-game losing streak. Burt thanked Parcells for the inspiration by dumping a cooler of Gatorade over his head and, well, you know the rest.

New York Giant quarterback Phil Simms was put on injured reserve, two days after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow. Coach Ray Handley said he expects Simms to play this season. Handley filled the third quarterback spot by activating Kent Graham from injured reserve. The Giants' eighth-round draft choice has some nerve damage in his right elbow, which still causes some numbness in his hand. Jeff Hostetler remains the No.

George Young told Ray Handley he was fired when they sat down Monday to evaluate the Giants' 6-10 season. But in reality the general manager knew long ago that Handley could not reverse the downward spiral the New York Giants have endured in his two seasons as head coach. "Your team has to feel certain that it has a chance to win," Young said Wednesday, while announcing Handley was out after a 14-18 record in two seasons.

A day after accepting responsibility for the New York Giants' 7-8 season, Coach Ray Handley warned his players to start doing things his way or find another team. Handley said Monday that some players had taken advantage of his somewhat laid-back demeanor, something that won't happen next season. "Obviously, they didn't respond the way I wanted them to," Handley said. "That will be part of the evaluation process. How do I get them to respond?

Coach Ray Handley gathered his players around him at the end of the New York Giants' practice Wednesday afternoon, and there was an attentive silence while he lectured them for several minutes. Then several players turned to look at the media corps waiting some distance away on the sideline, and the whole group broke into laughter and headed for the locker room. Once inside, several players made a point of either not talking to reporters or castigating them for trying to stir up trouble.

The teams that have won most of the Super Bowls lately are coached by two friends from the same early-1970s Stanford football staff. They are Ray Handley of the New York Giants and George Seifert of the San Francisco 49ers, who often talk about the old days, particularly the time they went out to a late gourmet dinner with the rest of the coaching staff at Palo Alto. In an hour or two, Seifert recalled recently, a party of 14 ran up a $510 tab. "Then we handed the check to Ray," Seifert said.
