I suppose I ranted a bit on this, but he is one of my favorite characters and really did shake things up nicely on the TNG set. To me, Jellico was the professional, get the mission done, no matter the cost type of man. Just the sort of person you'd want on a high stakes mission where the threat of war is imminent. His style was different, and admittedly overbearing, but that doesn't mean it was wrong.
Those are all excellent points and I think provide a thoughtful assessment of the Jellico character.

I think you can summarize the command styles of these two men by their own "catch phrases".

Jellico: "Get it done."
Picard: "Make it so."
