    Bill Parcels’ 11 Quarterback Commandments

    1. Press or TV agents or advisers, family or wives, friends or relatives, fans or hangers on, ignore them on matters of football, they don't know what's happening here.
    2. Don't forget to have fun, but don't be the class clown. Clowns and leaders don't mix. Clowns can't run a huddle.
    3. A throws with his legs more than his arms. Squat and run. Fat quarterbacks can't avoid the rush.
    4. Know your job cold. This is not a game without errors. Keep yours to a minimum. Study.
    5. Know your own players. Who's fast? Who can catch? Who needs encouragement? Be precise. Know your opponent.
    6. Be the same guy everyday. In condition, preparing to lead, studying your plan. A coach can't prepare you for every eventuality. Prepare yourself and remember, impulse decisions usually equal mistakes.
    7. Throwing the ball away is a good play. , interceptions, and fumbles are bad plays. Protect against those.
    8. You must learn to manage the game. Personnel, play call, motions, ball handling, proper reads, accurate throws, play fakes. Clock, clock, clock, don't you ever lose track of the clock.
    9. Passing stats and TD passes are not how you're gonna be judged. Your job is to get your team in the endzone and that's how you're gonna be judged.
    10. When all around you is in chaos, you must be the hand that steers the ship. If you have a panic button, so will everyone else. Our ship can't have panic buttons.
    11. Don't be a celebrity quarterback. We don't need any of those. We need battlefield commanders that are willing to fight it out everyday, every week, and every season, and lead their team to win after win after win.

    The Tuna was certainly entertaining wasn't he?

    But these commandments do seem pretty sound, wonder how many of them Tony Romo feels like he broke. I bet it's not half as many as I think he broke.
