Bill Parcells - the Big Tuna in Nfl Football

By: Tk Healey

Bill Parcells aka "The Big Tuna" in football is regarded as one of the best NFL coaches of all-time. He has coached in 3 Super Bowl games in which he has a record of 1-2, two with the New York Giants and one with the New England Patriots. One of the two losses came after his kicked missed a 47 yard field goal as time expired.

Parcels is known for his ability to turnaround a struggling franchise. With the Giants it took him two seasons to coach them to a winning record and just one with the Patriots, New York Jets, and his current team the Dallas Cowboys. These were no backyard drill games, but some serious football. He was able to bring all of his teams to the playoffs within his first two seasons with a new team.

He is known as a hard-nosed coach who is able to get the best out of his players. Parcells has coached several "problem football players" such as Lawrence Taylor and Brian Cox. Also he has coached two loud mouth wide receivers on two different teams Terry Glen (New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys) and Keyshawn Johnson (New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys). This season he has a new challenge coaching Terrell Owens who has had several clashes with previous coaches and teammates, but knowing Parcells' history this should be no problem.

When with the New England Patriots football team, Parcels felt he was not involved enough in the team's personnel decisions. He made a famous quote, "They want you to cook the dinner, at least they ought to let you shop for some of the groceries." With the Cowboys Parcells has brought in several football players from his former teams: quarterback Drew Bledsoe, Glenn, and Johnson, who has since left and joined the Carolina Panthers.

Football fans of Bill Parcells will be hoping his coaching techniques will bring them a Super Bowl team this season.
