Cowboys safety Roy Williams has a personal Jenny Craig.
Only Jenny is a he, and he ain't preaching "Love yourself at whatever weight you are."
"Coach Parcells was all over me about my weight," Williams said with a smile, "but I'm getting there."
Williams said he was tipping the scales at 240 when Bill Parcells came in. Parcells wants him at 229. So far Williams has lost seven of the 11 pounds.
His incentive? His pocketbook.
Parcells explained his ways of dealing with the late and overweight Monday. They get fined, and not a slap-on-the-wallet fine either. It is $235 per pound, per day. So a guy like Williams, who was 11 pounds too heavy, would be paying $2,585 a day once training camps starts until he dropped the weight.
"We'll weigh in periodically throughout the year," Parcells said, "and we'll have fat-boy weigh-ins."
HAHA It was great watching parcells on TV calling lots of players fatties and saying how he wouldnt stand for it. I think its great, not only helps the players game but improves his health. Still, Bill is no Kate moss himself now.
