Yeah I thought about that but now I am wondering if Coach Fitz had an eye for changing a player's exercise routine if he noticed weakness in a certain area of his play. And that perhaps that is not something you can just "follow," rather it's more of an inherent knowledge of observation.
Or maybe Coach Fitz had a way of pumping up the guys moreso to get that extra 10% out of them. You know how some coaches make you want to run through brick walls? Maybe Joe doesn't bring that out as much.
