So the Lions have their coach for at least the next two seasons (unless he crashes and burns horribly). Rod Marinelli. Some sportswriters are high on him (Wojo, Albom), and others not so much, (Parker, Rosenberg). We don't know a lot about this man, but from his press introduction, we got a look into the man, the myth the... AWWWW screw it. I'll use a quote from Simeon Rice. Here are links to some audio files from the presser. I have the whole thing, but uploads are broken since the server move and I can't post it in it's entirety. Talent is not the issue... On the trenches... Why does he think he can succeed.... • "Who am I? I have a background of building." • "I understand how to build." • "I'm a very good communicator." • "I understand men." • "We have talent. Talent is not going to be the issue in this league all the time. It's the talent that plays good." • "I've got confidence. I don't need anyone to instill that confidence in me." • "I believe in morale. It may be the No. 1 issue in this league." • "I believe in the development of skill." • "You have to be hard, but you have to be smart." • "I want a team that's going to be in great physical condition." • "I know how to teach. The team will play one snap at a time all the way through a game and compete." So what do you think?
