Parcells Not Satisfied

Cowboys head coach says he needs to kick some of his players into shape.

Coming off back-to-back victories over division opponents, the Cowboys (4-2) on are on top of the NFC East.

Yet Cowboys coach Bill Parcells is not happy.

"A friend of mine once told me the problem with me is I'm saddled with not if you win, but how you win," Parcells said. "That's my problem. I'm saddled with how you win. Some coaches aren't saddled with that. Unfortunately, I am."

Parcells is most bothered by the team's sloppy performance in a 16-13 overtime victory against the Giants last Sunday.

They had four turnovers, a missed field goal, a blocked field goal and a blocked punt, in addition to a nonexistent ground game.

His attitude surprisingly extended to a Cowboys defense that is coming off back-to-back outings in which it shut down the then-No. 1 ranked offenses in the league - the Eagles and Giants.

Parcells said his defense, which is seemingly jelling in the new 3-4 scheme, has done a good job. But he said there are a few individuals he wants to "kick" at times.

He is certainly angry with veterans Roy Williams and Aaron Glenn, who did not look to the sideline to get the call in the waning moments of regulation, allowing Jeremy Shockey to catch a game-tying touchdown pass.

"Kick would be a term of endearment, really," Parcells said. "It wouldn't be kick with the idea of hurting them, just kind of move them along a little faster. That's what I meant by kick. It's just like the sense of urgency. Some are happy to be here, you know?"
