The phrase "par for the course" means "the usual" or "that which is to be expected". Example: "There's Ron, trying to be the first to answer the questions. That's par for the course. - :wink:

A "monday morning quarterback" is somebody who analyses an event after it happens, possibly speculating on how he could have done things better. Example: "Ron is a monday morning quarterback. After TDOL does all the work Ron tells him what he did wrong and how he (Ron) would have done it better."

:wink:

The expression comes from American football. The pro games are usually played on Sunday. Those who analyze the game the next day (Monday) are the Monday morning quarterbacks.
