It doesn't get any better than this when the Dolphins VP of Football Operations visits the Sooners in Practice and gives the following pep talk.

BOTH of my favorite teams are playing in the postseason, in the SAME city, within DAYS of each other.

I'm in football heaven!

Parcells briefly talked with the Sooners before leaving practice.

"For most of you, this may well be the highlight of your athletic life," Parcells told the Sooners on a video available on Oklahoma's athletic website. "You are playing for big stakes on a big stage, something you are going to remember for a long time. So what you've got to do in this situation is promise each other in that dressing room that you are going to do everything you can to help your team win. You leave it right there - that's all you need to say. Everyone who does that, usually the results have been pretty good.


"In pro football, we're looking for guys who like it, that are accountable, that have good character, that are not too cool for school, that are reliable guys who want to play football and help our team to win year after year after year," Parcells continued. "That's why I am here today. You guys have a great team and a great opportunity, a great coaching staff and a great tradition. You've got everything going for you."

One reason Parcells has been successful is he doesnt take players with a lot of issues that distract from the team. He trys to avoid drug users, and too cool for school type knuckleheads.

Exactly...which is why I knew that the Tuna's days were numbered in Dallas once T.O. was signed....you knew he had nothing to do with signing that horse's arse, that was all Jerry Jones and a sign that Jerry was starting to meddle again. There was a look of disgust on Parcells' face whenever T.O.'s name was mentioned in press conferences.
