Zitat des Tages von Bill Parcells:
You are what you are.
Usually older players, late in the season, start to get cold.
When you don't know that you don't know, it's a lot different than when you do know that you don't know.
Something goes wrong, I yell at them -'Fix it'- whether it's their fault or not. You can only really yell at the players you trust.
I am demanding.
I love football; I enjoy it. That's why I've been in this game as many years as I have. I still like it. I get excited about it.
I like linebackers. I collect 'em. You can't have too many good ones.
When I was a young coach, there were people like Chuck Noll, Chuck Knox and Tom Landry who were there for me.
Success is never final, but failure can be.
I have a house in Saratoga Springs.
You get too old to lose. When you were a young guy, you bounced back from losses.
Don't worry about it. It's just a bunch of guys with an odd-shaped ball.
By and large, I've been healthy all my life.
God's been good to me, He really has. I don't know why he picked me out... Just think about it: I virtually coached in my hometown. From the middle of the Meadowlands field, it can't be but a couple of miles. I was lucky to do that.
If you've ever won a championship, then that's all you're interested in doing.
I can't live my life worrying about something that might never happen.
My entire life has been spent thinking about this game. That's pretty narrow... I don't view myself as a person who's well-versed in very many subjects. I'm not proud of that.
I think there are a lot of good people, a lot of good football guys in the NFL.
No matter how much you've won, no matter how many games, no matter how many championships, no matter how many Super Bowls, you're not winning now, so you stink.
You as an individual coach have a responsibility to try to give those players who put themselves at risk and in harm's way a chance to achieve success, and that goes for universities and professional teams, as well.
Why would you live your life worrying about something that's not going to happen?
I don't look at a problem and put variables in there that don't affect it.
If the players don't trust the coach, it is a problem, and vice versa.
I grew up under demanding people, that demanded things from you, expected you to toe the mark.
Look, coaching is about human interaction and trying to know your players. Any coach would tell you that. I'm no different.
If you're sensitive, you will have a hard time with me.
I'm a little superstitious.
I was fighting every windmill, especially when I was in college.
I've had a long standing relationship with Gatorade, and they've been very, very good to me. And I believe in their products; I really do.
The thing I really look for in this business is there are guys who are into football and there are guys who are in the profession for other reasons.
I spent a lot of time with my teams, especially in the East Coast teams, talking about dealing with the elements a lot of time, and a lot of instruction about field position and those kind of things. I like that variable.
Even when you're successful, even when you win the game, about an hour after the game, you have a litany of things that you now deal with that are problematic... So the times that you are happy are minute compared to the time that you're dealing with problems.
You don't get any medal for trying something, you get medals for results.
I don't have to make examples out of players to establish my own place. I don't feel like I have to.
