Tony Dungy isnt impressed with Rex Ryans limited use of the English language.

Seems Rex got stuck on the F-word a lot in the first episode of HBOs Hard Knocks.

First Rexs mother gave him a stern lecture. Now Dungy, one of the NFLs most laid-back coaches ever, says Ryan is giving the league a lousy image.

Im disappointed with all the profanity, Dungy said. I think Rex can make his points without all that.

Dungy said he wouldnt hire a coach who sounds like he just stepped out of a Sopranos episode.

I personally dont want my players to be around that. I dont want to be around that ... and if I were in charge, no, I wouldnt hire someone like that. Now, Ive been around F bombs, so its not like its new. I just dont think that has to be part of your every-minute, every-day vocabulary to get your point across.
