    Which is exactly why we have a tendency to hunker down in this corner of the board.

    I think you'd be well qualified to mod the Pfail Strip.

I also believe the most paramount skill he needs is a HR mentality when it comes to his personnel. Friends don't cut it in professional football. It's an employer/employee relationship and he can't do it any other way.
    agreed

    His performance at the PC was probably the result of being read the riot act by Woody, and the realization that not only is he on a short leash, he better be spouting the party line that Woody wants to hear.

    I think Rex can be very good, but he needs to clean up some things.

    You can be both, but being an expert does not mean you are necessarily a good manager. I know I’m very good at what I do, but I only recently realized that I suck at managing people, and it doesn’t really interest me.

    Rex is an expert (defense) who wanted to make the jump to a management type position and hasn’t pulled through. I honestly think from an HR point of view, he’s not management material.
    you forgot the third type: frauds who can't or won't do anything

    and yes - pls share your recent experience re: headcases
