Bill Parcells Comes Clean About Why He Left Dallas Cowboys

TexasCowboyCorrespondent IJuly 23, 2008

In his interview with Mike and The Mad Dog, Bill Parcells stated that his reason for stepping down as head coach was not about the losses.

It was more about all of the long hours he no longer could put in, because he is getting older.

Now in a recent comment Parcells made to the Sun Sentinel, he blames Cowboys QB Tony Romo for his leaving Dallas.

“All you got to do is kick a field goal, the most elementary of plays, and then you just don’t do it. And so I don’t want to go through that process again. Too much blood,” Parcells said.

First off Bill, Romo doesn't kick the field goals, the kicker does. Second, having Romo holding snaps was your mistake, not his. You and you alone allowed Drew Bledsoe to sulk like a baby on the sidelines after he lost his starting job to Romo.

You needed to kick Bledsoe in the butt and get him to fulfill his duties and obligations both as a team player and backup.

But the statue couldn't be bothered, and you for all intents and purposes because of name calling, had players who didn't want to play for you.

So how does that make you feel, Bill? Players wouldn't perform their best for you because you insisted on calling them names. You thought they would perform better if they were ridiculed.

Guess it all backfired, huh? Oh well. Good riddance to rotten Tuna.
