Uhh every coach at every level does this. Players only tune it out if they don't respect the coach. If they don't respect him thats his fault.

Due to the hierarchy he's going to have artificial respect but he needs to do better at his own job if he want's any one to follow and believe in him.

I still stand by my thought this team needed to be gutted and the "core" redefined when Fox left. Hurney pretty much drafted Cam and maintained the core was the same.

I think the entire team could of used a different vibe. Team overall has always come across to nice and soft. Smith excluded. D especially. OL as well.

Actually, im as critical of Rivera as anyone on here but I have to defend him here. Our players are pussies of this is true. Rex Ryan and Bellicheck both do the same thing. I actually have a little more respect for Rivera if thats true, our players deserve it. Not all of them but a lot of them, boo hoo. They get paid millions and they complain about profanity? Really?

Here's the difference though (assuming the story is true)...Ryan and Bellicheck are always like that. They are rough in their public personas and rough behind closed doors.

One of the worst things a manager can do is be inconsistent. If Rivera is Mr. Good Guy when the cameras are around, and a raving maniac when they're off, that is not a formula for successful leadership.

However, no offense to the OP, but I'm taking this with a grain of salt until we know for sure.

Beason claims he respects that military style..

If NFL players cant handle it, now we know where that losing mentality comes from..

I hear ya. I just wish the coach and GM were on the same page on personnel decisions. The scary/terrible thing is that they probably were and the results have been a disaster so far.

Either way we can't change the past and now can only hope the future will be brighter by any means necessary.

Our best ST coach was run out of town because he wasn't sweet enough to the players.

This team needs a tenacious attitude and while I do support signing and drafting "nice guys" I do think this is the other side of that coin.

Maybe Smith shouldn't be excluded based on the story Rozinski told the other day.

How does the adage go again?

Preach in public, criticize in private?

It's not that they can't take the cursing, it's that they're tired of it. We all know how bad tuning a coach out can be. Makes me think of Vernon Davis, Moss, or T.O. sitting on a bench paying no attention to the coach talking to them.
