Dallas Cowboys OL coach Paul Alexander has a very odd way to determine if a player will be successful.
Per SB Nation Radio’s Bobby Belt, Alexander wrote in his book, Perform, about the importance of dispensing ketchup from the bottle the wrong way.

Specifically, for those players who would dare hit the bottle on the bottom, Alexander doesn’t think you are right for his offensive line.
“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 the mental note: He must either play defensive line, or if he plays offensive line, he can’t play for me,”
Alexander maintain a steady career as a coach in the NFL. He spent the previous 24 years working with the Cincinnati Bengals before being hired by the Cowboys in January.
