From Womens Darren Sproles jersey an article Elite Blue Brad Smith jersey about him in Sports Illustrated: “Pioli has longed to capture something from his childhood, something difficult to explain. It is something he tries Authenitc Black Byron Maxwell jersey to explain now. He begins to talk about Authenitc Mens Brandon Graham jersey how, in building a team, you want no, more than want, you need to find people Elite Darren Sproles jersey who will do the right thing most of the time.”
Pioli is uncomfortable discussing Elite Womens Darren Sproles jersey this because it sounds sanctimonious and implies that the purveyor (in this case, him) regards himself Brandon Graham jersey as the perfect embodiment of “doing the right thing.” The article goes on:
“He repeats Elite Kids Brad Smith jersey some of the core words about building a team, hoping Elite Blue Darren Sproles jersey their power might fill the empty spaces. Reliability, Dependability, Accountability, Discipline. But these words have been used so often and so much in vain that they shrivel and fray and Elite Blue Brad Smith jersey lose their color in the light of day. Say discipline, for instance, and Elite Blue Brandon Graham jersey people think of banning long hair and earrings and tattoos, of avoiding dumb penalties.”
Pioli isn’t talking about that (BTW my definition of discipline Elite Brad Smith jersey is: “Doing what needs to be done, the way it needs to be done, when it needs to be Elite Brad Smith jersey done every time!”).
One example of Pioli’s (and Chiefs’ head coach Todd Haley’s) dedication to discipline is their quarterback: Matt Cassel. Considered a good but unexceptional quarterback prior to 2010, Cassel decided this year to “go to school” on the NFL quarterback he considered the epitome of discipline: Drew Brees. While many teams regard a quarterback’s physical ability (how far and fast can he pitch Elite Kids Brad Smith jersey a football) as paramount, Cassel (with the encouragement of Pioli and Haley) decided that his natural gifts resembled Brees’ more than anyone else and he went to school on Drew. They decided Authenitc Youth Chuck Bednarik jersey that Brees’ most outstanding trait was his footwork and drop back speed (hardly a strength most teams look for Elite Brandon Graham jersey in a quarterback). Since Cassel began his quest to improve his foot speed, all of his other statistics have improved dramatically.
By understanding the importance of aligning his natural ability and skills with the precise attributes required for success, Cassel has become a STUD.
The Chiefs are going to the NFL playoffs this weekend. It’s their first trip since Dick Vermeil was their head coach several years ago. At that time, they had many great individual players with recognizable names: Priest Mens Donnie Jones jersey Holmes, Tony Gonzolez, Trent Green. Those guys are now gone replaced by guys Authenitc Blue Byron Maxwell jersey like Cassel. Jamaal Charles Mens Byron Maxwell jersey and Dwayne Bowe. Not exactly household names.
Pioli decided a couple of years ago that having all the best players is not the same as having the right players, and that building a “one year wonder” of a team is not the same as crafting sustainable success built on a foundation of exemplary character.
When selecting and assessing your organization’s leaders, do you:
Consider their character (and its specific elements) as critical?
Regard questionable behavior evolving out of character flaws with as much distain (or more) as failing to achieve financial results?/li>Maybe most importantly do you examine yourself with brutal honesty, affirm your virtues and vow to be a productive example for others rather than following the dysfunctional example of others?
business career (outside of sports) for approximately 20 years. After retiring from business, he coached high school football. Over the past several years, however, he and his wife noticed impaired memory and thinking, notably short term memory, and more so in the past year. Agitation emerged after his memory decline, and increased in the year before evaluation. There were no other reported behavioral disturbances; mood was normal. He was evaluated for Men Miikka Kiprusoff Jersey progressive neurodegeneration by the NFL Neurological Care Program team at Mount Sinai Hospital, a multidisciplinary team consisting of a neurologist, a dual board certified neurologist psychiatrist, a neuropsychologist and two neuroradiologists. All evaluators were TBI and AD experts. At the time of the evaluation, the patient was taking both donepezil and memantine, neither of which had any benefit that was obvious to the patient wife. Magnetic Kid TJ Brodie Jersey resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain was conducted 3 months before PET imaging. The MRI revealed
His last public appearance was at a high school in North Carolina on Sept. 10. The commissioner and some NFL teams have been heavily criticized for lenient or delayed punishment of Ray Rice, Adrian Elite White Johnny Gaudreau Jersey Peterson and other players involved in recent domestic violence cases. Less than three weeks into the season, five such cases have made headlines, the others involving Greg Hardy, Ray McDonald Women TJ Brodie Jersey and Jonathan Dwyer. Vikings star running back Peterson, Carolina defensive end Hardy and Arizona running back Dwyer are on a special commissioner’s exemption list and are being paid while they go through the legal process. McDonald, a defensive end for San Francisco, continues to practice and play while being investigated on suspicion of domestic violence. As these cases have come to light, such groups as the National Organization of Women and league partners and sponsors have come down hard on the NFL to be more Kid TJ Brodie Jersey responsive in dealing with them. Congress also is watching to see how the NFL reacts. In response
for successfully reaching that destination. Leaders are not afraid to take a Authenitc Zemgus Girgensons Jersey risk. In the final two minutes of the game, the Patriot coach made a decision to go for the first down on their own 30 yard line rather than punt the ball. It was a high risk decision that backfired. The Patriot did not make the necessary two yards to maintain possession of the ball. Very quickly, the Colts scored and took the lead. I don think the Patriot coach is a dumb guy. He assessed the situation based upon all the game data and felt his team could make the necessary yardage. He was not afraid to take a high risk. Can we be as courageous and risk failure or do we always play it safe and dramatically reduce our potential to improve? Leaders are not afraid Women Ryan Oreilly Jersey to face failure. Yes, the Patriot lost the game on what Authenitc Gold Tyler Ennis Jersey many will characterize as a decision by their coach. I choose to say it was a gamble that didn pay off and not question the level of competence of the coach. He has proved he is a very good coach. But
