Excellent point! I was thinking something similar. How can we not find a guy somewhere in the middle? We don't want an uptight authoritarian who locks up the facility like Fort Knox. At the same time, Rex's guys talk more than politicians running for re-election, which I thought was impossible.
I think Mangini may soften his ways at some point and come back into the league to be successful. Look at Tom Coughlin, perennial tough guy and hardass who had some success around the league but never really won until he softened up and met with his players. He had a turning point and started to relax, then the Giants took off to success.
