Parcells feels you owe it to other players to start Geno Dan Leberfeld

Bill Parcells doesn’t think Geno Smith should have been benched for missing a meeting, because that wouldn’t be fair to the rest of the players on the team.

“I wouldn’t have done that because I’ve got a responsibility to the other 52 players, too,” Parcells told ESPN Radio. “If that player gives us the best chance to win, as long as he didn’t commit a crime, I’m playing him.”

Parcells also said he doesn’t think missing a meeting is a big deal.

He’s certainly mellowed with age.
