Well...when you coach for a team in Jacksonville that was in the midst of being sold and having one of the least talented offenses in football...you duck out early. Why should your job ruin your day?

Well, as that article pointed out, he watched to Pro Bowl to get a look at Dawk, Champ, Von and Doom. He watched the Pro Bowl. That's dedication.

I think we should fire him because he didn't fly out here the second he was hired.

Blah , blah , blah , if Del Rio was good , then yeah understand the rest , but he isnt , he got alot of improving to do , he is watching the Pro Bowl , spending the weekend with his family , he needs to get his ass to Denver and start working , he is being a puss cake ........

I hope this guy can bring it and is willing to stay for a couple years.

Didn't Jags run a 3-4 and the Panthers run a 4-3 cover 2 type?

I would prefer to stay with the 4-3 under we have been running this year but Del Rio should not be a Slowic!

Jags have always been a physical 4-3 with large physical specimens at the DT position. They did experiment with the 3-4 in 2009 but I dont think that lasted long.

I think Del Rio has alway been in the 4-3 - even back in Baltimore with those two fatties Sam Adams and Tony Siragusa clogging up the middle.

He had the opportunity to stay at home for the next 12 months and collect $5 million to do nothing. A lazy person certainly doesn't say no to that.

So the 'Lazy' tag as I understand it.. was because Jack Del Rio came into the office a couple of times around 9:00am ?? So anyone who doesn't get into work to turn on the lights and start the coffee is lazy ?? Hummm... Interesting take.

Goose and Adams are why the league started to crack down "more" on holding by defensive linemen after that season.

It definitely seems like there is a culture in the NFL where working harder is more highly valued than working smarter.

No, because you are a leading a team of young men who are in the business of physical. Players get better by practicing. The more they practice, the more hours they put into learning the game, the better they become at it generally. When's the last time you heard about a player who got to cut out early because he was practicing so smartly?

So if you are a coach of these men, and it is your job to lead them, what does it look like for you to expect them to show 30 minutes earlier than call, show up to all non mandatory practices and hopefully have a bunch of them stick around after practice to work, yet you are sailing in at 9 and cutting out as soon as you can at 5? How does it look when you are missing meetings when they are fined if they do the same? Hard to count on guys to go to battle for you if you aren't showing the same work ethic you expect out of them.

Obviously it's not a fair world but when you are dealing with a ton of immature kids, leading by example is one of the best tools you have in your kit.

Have to agree with Dedhed. There are ways to work more efficiently without sending yourself to an early grave in any industry, no matter how hard the job. I don't begrudge a guy that works a 12 hour day over an 18 hour day. Productivity dips after a certain point of fatigue so he's probably getting more quality out of it. The "more hours for more work" approach is getting pretty antiquated.

Now, the NFL might be a "special case" but I have yet to be convinced.

I agree. I think the main reason that these coaches spend so much time isn't because they have to in order to be good, it's because their competitive nature drives them to.

It also seems like sports in general breeds this notion of needing to be there all the time. When I worked for a minor league baseball team, as well as when I worked for the Bengals and the Reds, every member of management who was not "gameday staff", even the people on the foodservice side of things, worked 10-12 hour days on non-gamedays. I had all my stuff done by 4 o'clock so I'd leave, and everyone looks at you like YOU'RE the asshole.

You can work smart without having to be there all day, every day.

I dunno. I'm pretty healthy, and got 8 hours last night, but haven't been to the gym today or yesterday, but I just finished a document and have to begin another one, and I'd really just rather go home and fall asleep on my sofa with my dog next to me.

I'll make some tea and splash water on my face.

A good take from the post: http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_19856490

"For me right now, I'm excited to be here. I'm fired up. I'm not looking anywhere other than the next week, the next month and how we can dig in and do a great job here, and that's what I'm all about. I'm 100 percent in as a member of this organization," Del Rio said. "I'm going to be a good worker bee on this staff for John Fox, and all the people here. I'm going to give them 100 percent of what I have, and try to help this organization win."


And

Personal: Del Rio and his wife, Linda, have three daughters and a son. Their son, Luke, is a top high school quarterback and will play his senior year at a school in the Denver area this coming fall.

Yes, it does.

Missing meetings, being late, and every other offense you listed is an entirely different subject than being in the building 6 hours prior to when the first meeting is supposed to start just so you can prove a point.

If you're in the building at 4:30 and don't leave until after midnight, you're not a hard, intelligent worker; you're an incredibly inefficient micro manager who probably can't stand your home life and are in a constant state of burnout.

Psychotic, sleep deprived, anal retentive people who are in a constant state of paranoia at the thought of having missed something are only leaders to people who aspire to be psychotic, sleep deprived, anal retentive, and paranoid.
