Marquand Manuel uses player's mentality in turning

The blank stare Marquand Manuel wears Jermaine Kearse Womens Jersey as he emerges from the Atlanta Falcons' locker room on any given game day is intimidating.
Wireless headphones cover Manuel's ears as he shifts into his "zone" by Womens Mikael Backlund Jersey meditating to the old-school R&B sounds of Teddy Pendergrass. Shortly afterward, Manuel starts to nod his head emphatically as he picks up his jogging pace, mouthing the lyrics of 2Pac's "Against All Odds" as he makes his trek around the stadium.
Gloves cover Manuel's hands as if he's one of the receivers set to catch passes from Matt Ryan. The only footballs thrown Manuel's way come from young fans he randomly picks to play catch with during pregame warm-ups, like what has become J.J. Watt's ritual in Houston.
But Manuel's routine isn't about a player getting hyped for kickoff. It's about a defensive coordinator preparing to scheme against an opposing offense.
"It just shows his passion for the game," cornerback Desmond Trufant said of Manuel's player-like approach. "Obviously, he's a coach. But he was a player, too -- for a long time. He probably still gets the same feeling when game time comes."
Manuel, 38, has an infectious energy, and the players feed off it. They marvel at how the former NFL safety sprints across the field before every practice like a bubble roster guy trying to impress. They've even spotted him running barefoot after practice, a routine he says is "good for the knees and ankles."
"When the first thing he does is take off running full speed, you're like, 'Well, damn, if he can come out and do it every day, s--t, I know I can do it," free safety Ricardo Allen said. "I mean, he puts his cleats on and takes off running. To see your coach do that ... he's just an energy kind of guy. Every day he comes to work, he comes with intensity.
"If you think you're Womens Travis Zajac Jersey going to come around him and John Johnson Womens Jersey just get by, that ain't the kind of coach you're going to get."
Manuel is "in your face" at times. Just ask rookie Damontae Kazee, who got an earful before Saturday's practice and didn't flinch while soaking in the knowledge. Manuel balances throwing F-bombs with calmly relaying stern messages.
