Dorsey unhinged

One action. I said last week I'd understand Dorsey slamming the headset. It was the full flip out after that where he demolished the booth that was a loss of control I consider unacceptable for a coach. I did something similar once when I was coaching so I understand it. But you can't let it happen. He has to do better. Hopefully he will learn from last week. 


leave Dorsey alone please 

 

you have no idea if he has a disability or not. 

 

even the most normal of people can exhibit intense emotional outbursts 

 

Tom Brady and Belicheat are famous for outbursts.

Why?

 

Because leadership is about control. Once you exhibit a loss of control it damages your credibility as a leader. He will have to stand in that room at some point and talk to his players about the importance of keeping their discipline under fire - for example not committing desperate holds when you get beat on the final drive of a game - it is hard to do that if you are the first to fly off the handle and lose it like Dorsey did in Miami.

Normally I would agree completely and unequivocally with what you just said.  And ultimately I think you’re right.  Here’s the caveat in this situation - Dorsey’s tantrum was after the game, and the circumstances were unique in that we had overcome just about everything circumstances could throw at us (volcanic temperatures, injuries before the game, injuries during the game) in an extremely emotional division matchup with what sounded like a loud crowd.  I get the outburst in that scenario.  I really do.  He just can’t do it again, and he can’t act like a psycho for the reasons you outlined.  Can’t ask his players to be composed if he can’t manage it himself.

haha, I don’t know if I’d consider either of those guys “normal”.

Wasn't the game over?

We could not disagree more.

"I LOVED seeing that from Ken Dorsey because it shows you that he cares just as much as the players do" - Von Miller

 

"As players, we freaking love seeing that" - Josh Allen


Doesn't sound like he lost any credibility. May have actually gained some.

Yes, but his job isn't. If he keeps responding like that though, it will be. He will lose credibility, lose control and once you do that in a leadership position you are dead in the water.

Clearly. But I am a professional leader and have been a sporting leader. I promise you once you lose control you are done.

When Einstein disagrees with you, take the W.

I honestly mean no offense, but I think i’ll have to take Josh Allen and Von Millers side on this.

The captains appear to love it. I doubt he'll lose it like that again. I'm fine with it but am surprised we're even still talking about it.

I'm surprised anyone wanted to dwell on this in the first place! 

 

I thought it was entertaining and you know he gives a crap.  Beyond that, there isn't much to say or reflect on.
