|About the Book|
After bringing home two Super Bowls with the N.Y. Giants, and after taking the hard-luck New England Patriots to their own appearance in the big show, Bill Parcells has performed another miracle: hes transformed the 1-15 Jets into a real contender. All New Yorks got to do now is wait, because if the coach they call Tuna has his way, it wont be long before his Jets sere up yet another championship. A hard-nosed pro who always shoots from the hip, Parcells is one of pro footballs winningest, and often most controversial, head coaches. Always quotable -- love him or hate him -- theres no arguing his success. Because... when the Tuna talks, people listen.Parcells on the 98 AFC race: Were kind of stacked up like club sandwiches.Parcells on winning: Winning doesnt feel as good as it used to and losing feels worse.... This is my crack cocaine. I know its like an assembly line, okay? And I know that some day the line is going to stop, and thats when youre J-A-G. Just another guy.Parcells on NFL stars: Dumb players to dumb things. Smart players seldom do dumb things.Parcells on his weight: Hey, listen, let me tell you something. If I fell down, Id rock myself to sleep. Columnist Norman Chad on ParcelIs: It is a wonder of nature that caterpillars turn into butterflies. It is a wonder of ParcelIs that Vinny Testqaverde has turned into Joe Namath.... If he told his players the Earth were flat, none of them would cross the street. He could stare at a blue sky so hard, it becomes cloudy. Jets running back Keith Byars on ParceIls: If he tells you theres cheese on top of the mountain, youd better bring crackers.
