Interesting to see Carolina coach Ron Rivera go off today. At every practice, there are grunts, collisions, whistles, chatter. When Rivera talked, there was one voice. His.
"I will not have this on our field!" Rivera yelled.
Intensity of Wednesday's practice picked up considerably.
The idea is not to waste time. After Monday's practice was rained out, and moved into the gym, limiting what the team could do, players were especially enthusiastic Tuesday.
Not so Wednesday, apparently.
I remember Rivera losing his temper only once publicly, and that was early in his first camp last year.
When somebody is always yelling, they're easy to tune out. When somebody is customarily calm, shock value kicks in, and the impact is much greater.
