I'm sure you remember Charlie the Tuna from the old Starkist commercials? I remember reading about it when Parcells was the head coach of the Patriots; back when he was an assistant coach some of the players used to try to fool him; one day he asked them if they thought he was Charlie the Tuna or something and the name stuck. I'm not sure if it was when he was an assistant with the Patriots or with the Giants. (he was an assistant with the Pats then moved onto the Giants as an assistant before he became head coach)

thanks lb. i appreciate the info. the word "discipline" was used to describe parcells and may be what the cowboys need. hopefully, jerry jones will back off and let him be "the" coach.
