Could not agree more.

Personally I like Rex, I think he embodies a lot of what you would want to see in a players coach. His assistants on the other hand seem like horrible coaches, particularly the special teams guy. In fact I don't know who I like less, the Jet assistants or the waiter from the Golden Corral commercials.

"This f*****g Bart guy."

I was actually impressed with the way he handled it. The only time he seemed awkward was at the end of the David Clowney cut.

You're kidding right? Westoff is considered one of the better ST coaches in the game. Notice how he always seems to be around Rex? He's clearly well respected.

I don't doubt that the guy can coach from an X's and O's perspective. However something about the way he talked to the players just rubbed me the wrong way. It felt to me like the wrong type of tough love. I mean I've had coaches that would yell at you and get on your case and I've appreciated that, but for some reason the way Westhoff went about it didn't seem right. Particularly when he was complaining about the injured guys riding bikes and trying to get back on the field. That type of attitude is the kind that can easily get players hurt. Something I would expect a guy with a metal leg to be more understanding.

The NFL is drama really, like a man's soap opera. Just like the wwe we need some faces and some heels, that is what makes the drama.

I didn't mean to imply that they do want that type of personality at all.I just don't see Rex as the type to disdiscourage that and instill as someone else said sportsmanship ,it's a game and these guys are professionals and supposedly Rex is too but to me he doesn't act like it.
