After a clandestine meeting, Parcells agreed to travel south to restore life to the Cowboys. Deep in the heart of Texas, Jones''s once-proud pro football powerhouse had suffered through three straight disastrous seasons. Even a celebrity such as Irvin faced danger in the Texas criminal justice system. Very good hardcover in dust jacket. This team was so sick, it had bedsores.

Occasionally the solitude may be interrupted by a desire to share a humorous line with someone within earshot. Enter Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Under that rule, the 20 percent of the workforce that's the most talented always generates 80 percent of the positive results. For example, the writer informs his readers that the Cowboys of the 1990s won Super Bowls 29, 30, and 32, when in fact they won Super Bowls 27, 28, and 30. After a clandestine meeting aboard Jones's private jet, parked at a New Jersey airport, Parcells agreed to abandon his East Coast roots and travel south to restore life to the Cowboys. No, this will never be America's Team, if it is then woe for America. By the time I finished reading it three days later, I was very disappointed.

The image provided is the actual book I'm offering for sale. Most fans will enjoy this book for what it is: an irreverent and humorous look at the game of football and three of its icons --- a franchise, an owner and the Tuna. His sentences are way too flowery, and he always goes for the 38-word description rather than the 3-word description. Text block shows scuffing and marking. Occasionally the solitude may be interrupted by a desire to share a humorous line with someone within earshot. Bill Parcells was living in self-imposed exile from the National Football League sidelines.

When the opportunity presents itself, hire that innovative assistant coach for your new team. The story of the Cowboys' road to mediocrity began with a star player and two precious little hookers. The Dallas Cowboys and all their fans took great pride in getting their revenge on Terrell Owens the year after the star incident, and this author denies that it even happened. They're too set in their ways! Somehow he led the Cowboys to the playoffs in that first year. Page block is nice and square. As long as the Cowboys had great talent, total control was successful. Bill Parcells was living in self-imposed exile from the National Football League sidelines.

Since Campo was universally hailed as a 'nice guy,' he could also serve as exhibit A to the Leo Durocher doctrine --- the one that mandates where nice guys will inevitably finish. Book and dust jacket are in very good condition. Shropshire chronicles the season, some games in detail, others in passing. Additional photos will be provided upon request in order to ensure the quality and integrity of your book purchase. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. So naturally, I was very excited when I saw this book in the bookstore and immediately bought it.

His heart aching, Pa Bill Parcells was living in self-imposed exile from the National Football League sidelines. The author also makes a great deal of factual mistakes in the book that any die-hard fan or maybe just one as obsessive about the Cowboys as I am would pick up. Inexplicably, though, he devotes little space to the relationship between owner and coach. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include previous owner inscriptions. When the opportunity presents itself, hire that innovative assistant coach for your new team.
