DP: Yeah, f bombs.
RL: Man, Rex is Rex. His personality is wide open.
DP: Tony Dungy took issue with it. I asked him if he'd hire someone who swore like Rex, and he said no.
RL: Rex is who he is, and Tony definitely has his opinion about things, with the life he lives. I'm kind of the same way: If a man is cursing at another man, then I truly look at that as a problem, no matter what your job title.
DP: Who would be the person to tell you if you've lost a step?
RL: Probably the people who have to deal with me every day.
DP: Do they say it to your face?
RL: It's hard to say it to your face when you're getting up from the bottom [of the pile].
DP: [Laughs.] Have you lost a step?
RL: You only lose a step when you try to accomplish things that people make unrealistic. The game of football is the game of football. And from sideline to sideline—no disrespect to anyone in the business—but there's nobody who's going to beat me from sideline to sideline. That's a fact.
