Here was his first pep-talk to the team:
"Fellas, this isn't hard. Deep balls... or balls deep... or however you youngin's say it. Hold on hard... hold on to those balls. When it's long, make sure to hold on... hold on with both hands if you have to. As far as touchdowns go: if you go deep for long enough, they will come... and come... and come. Short... ha, ha, ha... nothing short about me. Long & deep & hard... that's the mantra. Repeat after me: long & deep & hard... long & deep & hard... long & deep & hard..."

You forgot "run with suddenness and glide while you beat off defenders."

Another one of Tomlin's boys. I'm going to predict this is going to go as good as the Sean Mahan hiring.

They'll be talking about our WR's ability to penetrate secondaries with great explosiveness and fluidity once Mann unloads his wealth of knowledge on this unit. Writers will be gushing about his talents next year. He'll be a valuable member of the team.

Besides, if he doesn't work out, we can always hire this guy when he gets out of the hospital.

He's known for teaching his receivers "how to find the hole in the zone."

Also heard he believes there's too much holding going on in today's NFL.

He's crafty and knows how to backdoor an opponent with the element of surprise and put it in the endzone for a score. He'll teach them to be hard as nails and not be afraid to get a little dirty.
