Asked whether he has noticed a difference in the culture with his new team, Taylor said, "It is night and day. Everything here is a little more relaxed, I guess you can say. There is a whole different vibe in the building. The practices, walkthroughs and meetings are a little more positive and calm."

If that's true, why was Taylor essentially begging for an offer from the Dolphins?

Instead, our guess is that Taylor is in the process of treating the Fins with the same contempt he previously directed to the Jets. And that's just another reason why the 2010 season can't get here soon enough.

It was no secret that JT liked playing for Dave Wannstedt. That nice guy approach doesn't work for long.

hmm..I remember when all the veterans were praising Cam Cameron for bringing a "relaxed" atmosphere. Glad I'm a fan of the team that motivates everyone to put in the extra hours. The great thing is that unlike with the Saban staff, the players don't complain about extra work, which means Parcells and co. have a good way of motivating players to want to go the extra mile, which is pretty awesome. At the end of the day, we will always be more prepared than the Jets.

I think what he really meant was there is far less sand for his va-jayjay.

Yeah...that's why he needed to go. A great player for the Dolphins, but in this regime, he'd be a cancer by complaining about practice and all that. Nothing against him, it's just what he's become accustomed to for playing with losing teams.

I don't remember JT complaining about practices? I remember him as a team captain and a guy who had a work ethic that inspired others to play better.

I stopped listening to JT three years ago after he said he would be dancing during the preseason.

Maybe not to the public, but I can see him being uptight with teammates. Wasn't he one of the guys that complained about Jimmy Johnson and how they wore down at the end of the season and Nick Saban's tight ship after he left for 'Bama?

The difference between Wannstadt and Dungy is that players want to work hard for Dungy...

The jets and their relaxed selves will have plenty of time for more relaxing because they will be on vacation early.

Sorry but this is really good news if you ask me that things are not so loose around our locker room. Guys play best when they dont know if they are going to keep their job.

Is there a point to this statement?

There was a post that said the nice guy approach to coaching does not work.

I replied that it seems to work for Tony Dungy.

Then someone replies to that by saying that Dungy had Peyton.

If Dungy sarted his coaching career in 1980 and Peyton was only 4 yrs old then you can not attribute all of his success as a coach to Peyton. I thought it would be obvious. Dungy had a 22 year stint as a successful coach before Peyton was a part of a team he coached. Saying that Peyton was the reason that Dungy had a long and successful coaching career did not make sense to me. I just tried to point that out by laying out those facts without resorting to a longer post like this one.

I figured that people could do the math. My bad.

Ok AQNOR, you take Dungy and Vermiel, their hugs and their touchy feely style. I'll take Lombardi, Brown, Shula, Walsh and Belicheck. Come on, seriously, Dungy?

I don't agree with your assessment of Dungy's coaching style as being hugs and touchy feely.

I never said that I did not like the coaching style of the other coaches you mentioned. So thank you very much but I will like the coaches I like. I will take Shula along with Dungy.

But please feel free to like the coaches you like.

What the heck? He said Dungy's coaching style works...and he's right, it did. I don't know why you're geting all PMS about it.

Tony Dungy was a great coach with or without Peyton. Did Dungy run his ship relaxed and easy going? I highly doubt it, but I know his guys loved to play for him. He learned from Chuck Knoll, and just like Knoll he was big on accountablity and attention to details. If you guys haven't read his book Quiet Strength I'd highly recommend it.

Yes, he did. Every player he coached will tell you he never raised his voice...ever. He taught, and didn't scream. Players loved him, and being respected and played hard for him.

Ok, so if you don't scream it is relaxed and easy going? I know Dungy didn't yell, but did the other coaches on his staff?
