Most NFL coaches couldn't get away with what Bill Parcells does without inciting a mutiny. Yet Parcells, now in Dallas, has refused to back away from a drill sergeant's persona that worked with both New York teams and the New England Patriots.
In an attempt to revive the Cowboys, for example, Parcells has forbidden rookies to wear a helmet with the team's blue star logo, explaining they "haven't done anything yet. They have to earn it and will get the star when we play an exhibition game."
First-round pick Terence Newman, a cornerback from Kansas State, is already learning a lesson of humility under Parcells. Despite signing a $10.5 million signing bonus, Newman was ordered to fetch the 61-year-old coach water during minicamp breaks. Newman said he didn't mind.
Another Parcells rule: When a player is confused about a play, the entire unit is ordered to run to a far fence and back.
"That's the way I do things," Parcells said. "It's nothing new. The point of it is they need to pay attention and know what's going on."
