Oh yeah, he is very direct. Both positive and negative. There is no misunderstanding his teaching points. They are emphatic. Easy to understand. He shows them what to do. And he is often hilarious (and memorable) in how he says it.

Best use of sarcastic profanity ever. But kind too. And not just yelling to yell, they are coaching points.

I had to turn around a few times and stifle laughter he is so dang funny.
But don't you think Mike V. will censor himself with all the younguns in attendance?

I can see Vrabel being RAC's replacement as the DC in the future.

McGinest tells Texans players to put team first
Quote:
...
"I've got friends in the building," McGinest said. "I wanted to watch practice, watch film, talk with some of the young players, be a resource and just see if I could help. I just love to be out there giving tips.

"It's a good team and a great group of guys. I know Billy O is really going to get them going, and I wanted to come in and be a part of it for a couple of days.

"Players hear from the coaches a lot. When they hear from a player who went through what they're going through and made that same transformation they're making, they kind of relate in a different way."
...

McGinest is a big Crennel fan.

"Romeo is very knowledgeable," he said. "One thing that's always said about great coaches is they have schemes and game plans but they don't just throw them out there and demand their players play them.

"Romeo has that innate ability to come up with a scheme and game plan based around his talent. He'll put players in the best position to succeed. He's going to ask a lot of them and push them to play at a high level."

McGinest likes what he sees and hears about O'Brien early in his first season as an NFL head coach.

"I like his style," McGinest said. "I like that he's so demanding. He's a smart coach who understands what he wants and what styles need to be played.

"He's going to push guys. He wants tough guys. He's going to change the culture. He's teaching fundamentals, the importance of being consistent.

"When you put in new systems, it's going to take some time. Nobody's going to get it overnight. There's a process, but he's got all the ingredients for championship football."

I liked the way Willie was talking but I LOVED what he said in the bolded. I could be way wrong but I always thought that was lacking with the former regimes.

Vrabel: "Just trying to be me."
Quote:
Linebackers coach Mike Vrabel talked about Brooks Reed, Clowney's learning curve, his former coaches and how they molded his coaching style and more Monday following the morning practice.

So for anybody to say he injury prone, etc, is just absurd IMHO.(not saying anyone in particular has) but I've seen comments on other sites were others do.
I see your point, but when I say injury prone I mean it in a broad sense—likely to be injured, for whatever reason. Is part of it because opponents try to get Cush out of games since he's so good? Does he bother to defend himself against cheap shots? Does the intensity with which he plays have anything to do with it?

I'll rephrase it: For whatever combination of reasons, Cushing is very likely to get hurt.
