The guy really likes football. You can say they all like it, but no, they don't all like it. He's a good football player. I like him. He's an impact player.
"Rodney Marinelli" is an American football coach who is currently the defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys. Marinelli has been a defensive coach for several college and professional teams, serving primarily as a defensive line coach when he has not been a coordinator.
From 2006 until 2008, Marinelli was the head coach of the Detroit Lions. He was fired from his position as head coach one day after the team completed its 2008 Detroit Lions season/winless 2008 campaign, making Marinelli the first head coach since the schedule expanded to sixteen games to lose every game in a season.More Rod Marinelli on Wikipedia.
It's about how hard the man is willing to play. Then you look at how hard he's willing to be coached. So you've got to find the type of men for whom football is so important that I've got to lock them out of the facility. That's what I'm looking for and that's what I'm going to find.
Sometimes, when you hit the right guy, you're going to get him and you're going to feel good about it.
You've got to find the type of men for whom football is so important to them that I've got to kick him out of the facility. He wants to be the best. 'How do I do it? Help me. What do I have to do to be great?' That's what I'm looking for, and that's what I'm going to find.
It's just about how hard the man is willing to play. Sometimes you'll see these guys on tape not playing that hard all of the time, and now you have to go research why.
It is a similar position, and he's got traits like Derrick -- but Derrick has been to nine Pro Bowls, so that's where the comparison stops.
We've been on the same page all the way. We're looking for the same guy.
It's great to get this opportunity. I want to turn the Lions into a championship team. It's going to take hard work and I'll assemble a staff that will work hard for this organization.
I want to be physical, that's my style. I want to run the ball with power, defend with power.
