Redskins defensive coordinator Joe Barry needs to keep his energy levels high to match his players's intensity in training camp and throughout the season, despite late nights breaking down film, which is how he developed the habit of drinking 10 cups of coffee each day, usually before noon.
In addition to that seemingly endless amount of coffee, ESPN reports that Barry frequently adds a couple energy drinks to the mix and is willing to defend caffeine from those who would malign it.
“Caffeine is not bad for you,” he said. “It gets a bad rap, but as long as you’re drinking water with it. ... But I don’t get headaches from it. ... I probably lie a little bit when I go to the doctor. I probably say yeah I have three cups a day. But as long as you hydrate with it, coffee’s not that bad for you.”
Barry adds that he supplements all that coffee with 120 ounces of water each day, leading him to jokingly estimate that he heads to the bathroom “57 times” a day.
