I don't know about that. Belichek does have his style. So does Pete Carroll, and if you've seen his post game locker room speeches, he was a motivator. So was Shula, so was Lombardi, even Parcells. I don't think Dungy was, great coach, but it took Gruden to get his TB team a trophy, and an all world offense led by Peyton to get one single trophy in Indy.

Shula and Marino were both done. Shula was getting old and by then had too many seasons of disappointment. Marino was never the same after the Achilles, and worse after some neck industry. Marino was jittery in the pocket and throwing like a girl in his final seasons.

IMHO they both overextended their welcome.

If the simple economics of it don't motive nfl players to be the best that they can be. A simple rah-rah speech from his hc wont do it either.

Rah-rah is personality. Its not motivation. True motivation comes from within, not that which is without. No one can motivate me, but if I originally felt great about something, they cn definitely remind me.

an·tag·o·nist (n-tg-nst)n.

1. One who opposes and contends against another; an adversary.

2. The principal character in opposition to the protagonist or hero of a narrative or drama.

3. Physiology A muscle that counteracts the action of another muscle, the agonist.

4. Biochemistry A chemical substance that interferes with the physiological action of another, especially by combining with and blocking its nerve receptor.

I'm Just Saying. Even Your Name Screams Desperate Need For Attention.

Your Desperate Need To Just Answer To Everything I Say With Something Condescending. IS RIDICULOUS!!

If Dashi Is A Dumb Dog. You Must Be A Tick On My D'ck!!

Seriously Buddy. Stop With The Man Crush.

You are being idealistic. Football is a rough dangerous game. Training is tough, playing is tougher. Many many players don't even want to make the playoffs, its extra work, and they already have plenty of coin. In any profession, any endeavor, motivation is important. Leaders do need to motivate...afterall humans are just dumb silly animals.

Depending on my mood, at times rah-rah personalities can turn me completely off.

Is Erik Spoelstra A Master Motivator?

Yet, Some Idolize Him Like A God.

Everybody Finds Something To Criticize, When They Want To Find Something To Nitpick.

I Know Cursing Isn't A Good Indicator Of Motivation. But They Had To Cut The Camera Away From Philbin Whenever The Fins Screwed Up. He Was On The Sideline Motivating Players To Play Better.

And Smart People Don't Have To Yell All The Time. They Know When To Be Quiet And They Know When To BE LOUD!!

Philbin Makes Sure His Players Are Prepared For The Game At Hand!! Which Is What You Ask Out Of A Coach.

A herd of cattle can be unintentionally motivated to go headlong over a cliff. Motivation alone is not the cure to success.

Mr. Kettle, I would be hard pressed to find a blogger more desperate for attention on all seven continents, than you. You obviously have a tiny and frail ego, were picked on a lot as a child, maybe even now, and try to use the blog to compensate for all of this. You try to use the blog to boost yourself above others who are far more educated and experienced than yourself.

You will choose to remain in denial about this, but others see it loud and clear. Personally I think Kris was too much of a gentleman in exposing you earlier today, but sometimes subtlety does a better job of getting the message across.


Remember something, one thing. The only person you can ever fool is yourself, and you are doing a damn good job of it.

Preparation Is Better Than Motivation.

There are 3 types of motivation:

1. Aggressive
2. Passive
3. Assertive

These also happen to be the 3 types of human personalities. Every single person can not be handled exactly the same.

Also, of these 3 types, the passive personality is least of all expected to excel in a nfl environment. Many of these are weeded out at high school level cuts even.

So, of all of these 3 personality types, I would far more seek the assertive type over passive or aggressive types. The assertive personalty type always has far more control of himself that will always illuminate itself upon others.

YG4, not sure I entirely agree with that. Many great players, even performers in any area are shy. Ricky was shy. Walter Payton seemed kind of passive, personality-wise.


I agree in that they all have to be handled differently, but not sure you can categorize them so simply. Many aggressive or assertive players might have done themselves more good than harm...Bryan Cox for example.

It is an interesting debate though, but too many facets too it.

Assertive/Agressive/Passive Examples:

1. Shriek, "Im not going to do it."

2. State, "Im not going to do it."

3. Bark, "Im not going to do it!"

Many times these types are not soley passive. These are passive aggressive types, not to be confused with passive alone.

Motivation and preparation, at the highest level, go hand in hand. One feeds the other.

Some like to throw out a saying trying to sound wise, yet they only expose their inexperience.

Passive aggressive types either feel less than or greater than those around them. There's no middle ground either way.

How they responds depends soley on how they view those surrounding them.

This is why I say there are many facets to it. It is not possible to simple reduce it down to 3 categories for each in themselves have a whole array of attributes to be considered.

Someone like Ricky and Walter Payton, even they may appear shy on tv, may personally treat someone like your or I like dirt beneath their shoe.

We presnt no threat and we're socially-economically their inferiors. Thus, that's how exactly they may personally treat us with no cameras in the fray.

Rickey was a passive alone type. On the field he was aggressive and assertive. Without rehashing Rickey's history, had conditions been better, team, coaching, etc, he was talented enough to be in the top 5 RB's in NFL history.

Those are the "big 3". But the assertative type personality is the more stable and what you see is what you get personality.

Aggressive and passive personalities are the ones more prone to becoming a twisted mess.

Back to the draft....I know nothing, but I like to guess...and my guess is Ireland takes an offensive playmaker in the first round.

My next guess is he trades either the two threes for a 2nd or the two 2's for a 1st.

When looking at all the very good qb's on on 2013's schedule. It should be a defensive heavy draft. But I can see a olineman and a wr in this fray.

Can we move on from psychoanalysis of the human race? Thanks.

Philbin and Sherman seem to have gotten a hold of Ireland's ear. One thing I liked about Rex when he took over the Jets, he was in WIN NOW mode. I think you should always be there, and I think Ireland was in let's set up for the future that never comes mode.

The 2013 schedule pretty much dictates a "db" or someone who helps put great pressure on the opposing qb 1st pick.

Posted by: daShebas Big Gulp | April 20, 2013 at 09:46 PM

I think, Ireland never 100% respected Sparano evaluation of need for the team. Sparano failed with many of the picks Ireland gave him.

The thing about trading around the draft board is having a dance partner to make the moves.

YG4, what is your take on Vernon? It seems like the fans think he will be a rookie forever. I would think he is not even close to his ceiling yet.

I think the FO sees more budding talent on the roster than the average fan. I'm wondering about Wilson too, I would think he has more upside.

I'm in n.c the temperature is 56.

I'm not in sunshine state anymore.

3 AND 2 GOING INTO BYE.

DEFENSE GONE BE IN TROUBLE WHEN MIKE WALLACE LINE UP IN THE SLOT AND TE. LINE UP WIDE.

So this is why Pitt didn't even make the playoffs last year? We overpaid for a one trick pony.

We could end 9-7 or 10-6 but need some luck in the first five games. If we go 1-4 it would be very difficult to come back with a 2nd year qb and a team that has changed so many players in the off-season. Here is how I see us getting to 10-6.

at Cleveland - W
at Indianapolis - W (Hope so)
Atlanta - L
at New Orleans - L
Baltimore - L
Bye
Buffalo - W
at New England - L
Cincinnati - W (Should)
at Tampa Bay - L
San Diego - W
Carolina - W
at New York - W
at Pittsburgh - L
New England-W
at Buffalo - W
New York - W

This assumes that we would be able to come back from 3 straight losses and win 6 of the last 7 games. It Tannenhill is as good as I hope we should be able to.

GINES.........

YG, You're Gay!!

Seriously, Kiss My Pecker, I Have Never Seen Someone Defend Gay People So Much Well Except A Gay Person. And All The Not So Subtle Hints. By Statistics 1 Of Us Bloggers Has To Be Gay. Yeah, Keep Using Statistics In Your Favor.

If I Said Jesus Was Gay You Might Actually Agree With That. FF!!

You Are OK With Sodomizing Another Man Or Getting Sodomized. Just As Long As They Are Not Underage At The Time. Agreed. That Is What You Said. Your Words. Not Mine.

And The Whole Not Wanting To Know The Truth. That Just Radiates Sunshine.

Talking About You Found Out You Were Gay After You Became An Adult.

Watch Them Cry Foul.

I Didn't Use 1 Bad Word.

But That Is The First Thing They Want To Talk About. My Name.

In 5 years Ireland has drafted a handful of mediocre starters that are still with the team. Thats failure.

Now On The Reason Why I Really Come Here.

The Draft Is Less Than A Week Away.

Ireland Needs To At Least Answer 1 Question. What Are We Going To Do At LT and RT.

Hopefully B. Albert Wants To Much Money. And Ireland Isn't Willing To Pay.

Hopefully Dawn Steps In And Explains To Him That It Makes More Sense Fixing The O-Line Thru The Draft And Not Free Agency.

The Fins Can Draft 3 Linemen. 2 At The Top, And 1 In The Late Rounds. And Answer Other Needs Along The Way.

1-OG
2-RT
2-CB
3-OLB
3-FS
4-RB
5-Qb/WR
7-OG
7-K

as a dolfan, on friday, what would you rather hear...with the first pick miami selects DL lutolelei(which would leave a hole at left tackle and a question mark at powerback) or with the first pick miami selcts alabama's powerback LACEY...well it is possible, and by the looks of it they are talking to the right team...noting that they are talking trade with kansas city..yes, brandon albert solidifies left tackle and while there on the phone maybe they trade up to get LACEY...anything is possible, and that scenario might be a dream, but why not, i mean after all...we did just get MIKE WALLACE and a slew of other fine players..

I would much rather have Lacey. I love that guys game and we need someone to split carries with Lamar. He would get on the field a lot compared to Star. I really think the "experts" have his value too low. He can be a 3 down back.
