    I love that he does them, just his answers are usually um bland. He doesn't create noise to stir up issues and create drama. It just feels weird thinking that he is doing a great job and well he doesn't seem like the most memorable person.

    I love this one.
    It just proves my point that they are focused and keeping it real while being undefeated and taking it one game at a time.

    Do you think being undefeated makes the season more stressful?​

    The answer is no, because the game of football doesn’t really cause me any stress. It’s the things surrounding the game that cause stress as a head coach. I love game-planning. Besides Sunday, Tuesday is one of my favorite days because it’s game-plan day. It’s the coaches sitting around the grease board, talking about how we’re going to attack the opponent. I really, truly enjoy that part of the game of football and I always have. I really get a lot out of the camaraderie in the meetings, the ideas everybody brings to the table, particularly with our offensive staff. We’ve been together six years. Dom and the defensive staff have been together for three years now, and their ideas and how they visualize the game plan progresses very smoothly as well. Shawn Slocum is also very comfortable with the special teams game-planning. That part of it is a lot of fun for all of us, but there’s still nothing like game days. It’s a chance to go out and compete. The players ultimately compete on Sunday, but as coaches you get to compete in a lesser form.

    The stress comes from the management of all the things outside of the actual game, such as dealing with the media, handling potential distractions or personal situations that always occur during the course of the season. If anything, it’s less stressful being 5-0.
