A hard-nosed pro who always shoots from the hip, Parcells is one of pro football's winningest, and often most controversial, head coaches. Always quotable-love him or hate him-there's no arguing his success. Because . . . when the Tuna talks, people listen.

Parcells on the '98 AFC race: "We're kind of stacked up like club sandwiches."

Parcells on winning: "Winning doesn't feel as good as it used to and losing feels worse. . . . This is my crack cocaine. I know it's like an assembly line, okay? And I know that some day the line is going to stop, and that's when you're J-A-G. Just another guy."

Parcells on NFL stars: "Dumb players do dumb things. Smart players seldom do dumb things."

Parcells on his weight: "Hey, listen, let me tell you something. If I fell down, I'd rock myself to sleep."

Columnist Norman Chad on Parcells: "It is a wonder of nature that caterpillars turn into butterflies. It is a wonder of Parcells that Vinny Testaverde has turned into Joe Namath. . . . If he told his players the Earth were flat, none of them would cross the street. He could stare at a blue sky so hard, it becomes cloudy."
