The Rock names the NFL coach he would've loved to play for

Amazon series All or Nothing gave a fascinating glimpse into the style of Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians.

The flat-cap wearing coach stole the show in the eight-part series, his passion clear to see with every F-bomb dropped.

And one man Arians captivated during the show was actor and semi-retired WWE superstar The Rock.

Dwayne Johnson tweeted a clip from an episode, showing a montage of Cardinals’ highlights with an acapella song playing in the background.

So impressed was The Rock that he added that he would have “loved” to have played under the Cardinals’ head coach.

The Rock takes to Twitter

The lyrics to the song perfectly embody Arians:

“I’m about to whip somebody’s a** / Oh, I’m about to whip somebody’s a** / Oh, if you don’t leave me alone / You’re going to have to send me home / Cuz I’m about to whip somebody’s a**.”


That proved true during the series when Arians seemingly cut a player for parking in his spot at the Cardinals facility.

Lawrence Okoye’s decision to park in Arians’ spot wasn’t the only reason he was released - Carson Palmer or Larry Fitzgerald wouldn’t have faced the same punishment - but it certainly didn’t help his case to make the 53-man roster.

Super Bowl contenders

The Cardinals are widely tipped to go one better than last season and make the Super Bowl for the first time since 2008.

General manager Steve Keim showed an impressive ability to put together a strong roster and the trade for New England Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones improves a major weakness.

And it might be worth giving The Rock a call, too.

If The Rock played football, which position would he be? Let us know in the comments section below!
