Dan Campbell does not look or talk like your typical NFL head coach.
That much was evident at the onset of today’s presser in Davie when Mike Tannenbaum was introducing him. The former NFL tight end was sitting there, arms crossed and massive forearms bulging with a frightening scowl on his face. It was like he was awaiting orders to take someone out.
Campbell looks like a WWE wrestler and deserves some theme music.
Below are a few songs that would suit Dan “The Man” Campbell as he engulfs the gridiron and prepares for demolition as fireworks splatter the sky at his back.
Boom — P.O.D.
“BOOM. Here comes the Boom.
Ready or not, here comes the boy
s from the South
Boom! Here comes the Boom!
How you like me now?
Is that all you got?
I’ll take your best shot.”
Boom is the first song I thought of because it makes you want to rip off your shirt and run through a cement wall.
So does Dan Campbell.
Last Resort — Papa Roach
“Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort,
Suffocation, no breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding
This is my last resort”
The Dolphins are in pieces.
Campbell is the last resort.
The fan base is suffocating.
Campbell’s arm is bleeding but he doesn’t care because blood is a sign of strength… more blood the better… he pours it on his cereal.
‘Till I Collapse — Eminem and Nate Dogg
“Till the roof comes off, till the lights go out
Till my legs give out, can’t shut my mouth
Till the smoke clears out, am I high? Perhaps
I’ma rip this shit, till my bones collapse”
There’s no question Dan Campbell is more of a rock/country type of dude but ‘Till I Collapse is perfect for nearly any pump-up occasion, especially one that involves a mutant with super strength coaching an inept NFL team.
Why does Dan Campbell need entrance music? Because Dan Campbell is a superhero sent down from Mars to change the landscape for one lucky perpetually mediocre franchise.
Thank the football gods we got him instead of Cleveland.
