I think that is a rash generalization. Different people respond to different types of motivation. For myself, a ranter as a boss does not work. For others, someone constantly has to be on their butt or no work gets done. Most are somewhere in between. All I know is when Deloach came to the sideline, I would have lit into him like there was no tomorrow, and I would have made sure as many players as possible heard it. Then I would have benched his arse the rest of the game, and benched him next week to boot. Someone needs to give these guys a good swift kick, and Capers ain't doing it!
