To stand back for a second and take a broad look at all 26 NFL coaches, I get the following impressions:

They are all going to outwork each other, most of them are going to quote Paul Brown occasionally, very few are going to smile Frequently, several are going to take credit for a new trend, two or three will be fired, and they will all agree that it's getting tougher and tougher to coach pampered millionaires. Personally, I think it's getting hard for them to find good "receiver coaches."
