Ex-Cowboy Dan Campbell gives us a brief glimpse into Parcells World. In an article about his new team - the Lions - and new head coach - Rod Marinelli - Campbell discusses the contrast with Bill Parcells and the Cowboys.
"Every team in the league talks about toughness," Campbell said. "It's just a given that you've got to be a tough team. But in Dallas, the way we were going to beat people was to line up and physically just try to beat the crap out of them."
"Here, we want to do that, but we're talking more about beating people with conditioning - you get into your huddle, get out of your huddle, run your play. Defense, same way. It's running and running and running full-speed. Constantly they're saying, `You're going to be in better shape than you've ever been in. You're going to push yourself harder than you thought you ever could be pushed.' "
Parcells just wants to beat the crap out of his opponents. Old school.
JJT has some new stuff up on the Cowboys over at The Sporting News. He talks about Jacque Reeves and the Jason Ferguson back-up crew, Montavious Stanley and Thomas Johnson. What? No mention of BTB favorite Sammy T. Oh well.
He also discusses Al Singleton.
