How hard do you work? Are you more of a Adam Gase or Dick Vermeil?
In this article about the Jets new coach a few excerpts:

Every Tuesday when he was in Denver, Gase met with [Peyton] Manning at 2 p.m. Except this Tuesday, when Jennifer was delivering Wyatt by caesarean section.

Gase told his wife to schedule the operation for 10 a.m. “So they pulled the baby out of me and said, ‘It’s a boy,’” Jennifer says. “They didn’t even put my organs back and sew me up before he’s like, ‘You good?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I’m good.’” He said, ‘All right then, I’m out.’ They said, ‘You want to cut the umbilical cord?’ He said, ‘No, I’m good.’”

At 2 p.m., Manning was stunned to find Gase waiting for him in the meeting room.

Manning: “You’ve got to be kidding me. Didn’t your wife just have a baby two hours ago?”

Gase: “Yeah, but did you really think I was going to let you win this one?”

In 1983, at the age of 46, Vermeil called it quits as the Eagles’ coach, citing burnout. This was how Sports Illustrated once described Vermeil’s ability to multitask: “He gulped coffee for breakfast, ate a Carnation Breakfast Bar for lunch and sometimes had a hoagie, while sitting on the toilet, for dinner.”
