Cowboys' O Line Coach Grades Players By How They Get Ketchup Out Of Bottle


The Dallas Cowboys have a new Offensive Line Coach named PAUL ALEXANDER . . . and he sounds like a pretty fascinating guy.

He wrote a book back in 2011 called "Perform", and in it, he said that he grades players by observing how they get KETCHUP out of a bottle.

In a passage making the rounds online, Paul says, quote, "Are you the type of person who knows why the number '57' is etched on the neck of a bottle of Heinz ketchup? . . . Typically about 5% know the answer . 

"It's placed at the precise spot where if one taps gently on the tipped bottle, the ketchup flows freely from the bottle.  The person who figured that out was a genius.

"When I see a large football player turn a bottle of ketchup upside down and pound at its heel with tremendous force yet with limited success, I immediately make a mental note:  'He must either play defensive line, or if he plays offensive line, he can't play for me.'"
