That's two out of five days. I hope they are at least in the film room. Eason needs the work.

 

 It's like you don't understand that Eason has likely had few days off from "working" since before he was drafted.

They get a day off every 3 or 4 days. They have panther practices next Friday and Saturday so the days this week are kind of messed up. They have practice Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Players actually got to go home last night. Otherwise they are at a hotel.

NFLPA and NFL agreement limits number of practices by type and how many rest days during training camp. And even during the rest of the year. Basically it’s the same for every team.

They are allowed to have a couple days off right? Lol

 

But seriously, their bodies need that rest. I wouldn’t be made (mad) at film room until the regular season. Can’t afford for any more started (starters) to get hurt.

This must be why there are so many more soft tissue injuries these days. Players getting soft.

When I was in camp we had two a days and weren't allowed to drink water during practice.

 

Coaches learn from mistakes made in the past, thank goodness.

That was just stupid. Coach Landry always let us hydrate.

High school or college? Oh right, this is the NFL. I ran two-a-days too in high school but at a much lower level of football. The pros are pros because they’re stronger and faster than everyone else. Strong bodies against strong bodies can cause injury and we’ve seen that. Maybe you should check your ego, honest answer to your thread in general

I would fathom a guess some of them aren't taking the day completely off.   Gives some a chance to do their own workout routine and eat some different food.  They haven't even been with pads but two days and I've heard the practices are not gaudy (In Reich fashion).  And they are probably nose-in playbook as well and studying Panther film.

There is a football game tonight.:cheer2:

Everyone get excited before preseason (and this is especially true with the HOF Game) only to remember that it isn’t really football, but televised practice and isn’t really all that compelling to watch.

 

It is *technically* football, but ultimately it’s always disappointing. :(

They are still frail compared to players in the past. 

 

They're bigger, faster, and know how to take care of their bodies a lot better.  You can call that being frail, but when they're older they'll be in a lot better shape to enjoy the fruits of their labor.  I call that being smart.

Yup, you were "soft" if you drank water back then, thank goodness we have evolved, well some of us :goodluck:

Look how many of our players are hurt already. They haven’t even put the pads on yet.

Saying that players were tougher in the past is hilarious. Comparing impacts between players that are generally 20-30 pounds heavier now to players of the past, and who now are considerably faster.........is like saying that a lightweight boxer delivers the same punch that a middleweight boxer does.

 

Except when you compare a 210 pound LB meeting a 180-90 pound running back......to a 245 pound LB meeting a 210-20 pound RB..........the difference is massive. That does not even take in the fact that both positions are faster today.

Players also get hurt working out in the office-season long before they out on pads.  That doesn’t make them soft.  They’re doing serious physical activities and staff happens. 
 

This is not about who is soft and who isn’t….

New rule.  Anyone who thinks today’s players are soft has to line up against Buckner or Nelson (when healthy) in pads and try to block/get around them.  Then we will see if they still think today’s players are soft.

Don’t think we have any linebackers the size of a Ray Lewis, Brian Urlaucher, Junior Seau. We had Leonard playing at about 215lbs last year. He said so himself.

    • I wanted to rewatch the game before I posted anything on this because I came away with the feeling we didn't do much outside of a handfull of big plays on offense and the same on defense.   So, final thoughts...   Offense Good to see some explosive plays!! But... Outside of the 2 big plays to Campbell and Hilton, Wentz didn't have a good day at the office. 11/20, 223 yards, 2 TDs to 9/18, 120 yards, 1 TD without those plays.  Of course if we didn't have to do all that much outside of those big plays. Also, we're still seeing examples of him holding the ball too long. Taylor is a beast and I just don't get the idea of only getting him 14 carries. He's averaging 14,5 carries per game with a low of 10 and a+ high of 17. It's ridiculous. Seemed like Hines was only in the game to tire the defense and set them up for Taylor. That's a shame I think. He's one of our a biggest playmakers in my opinion. It was great to see Hilton out there again! I honestly had written him off as done, with last years performance and his injury this year, but he proved me wrong. Campbell is a bust. That has been my opinion for some time now, but I really thought he was going to prove me wrong with that 51 yard TD. Then he got injured... again. Best ability is availability. He isn't. Mo had a good TD catch, but should've had another. His second drop I blame Wentz for - bad placement. Had a great block on Taylor's 2nd TD. Pittman had 2 solid grabs and a few good blocks down the field but not much outside of that. Fisher sucks. He's not far removed from an achilles injury, but he still has a long way to go. Hoping he'll improve because right now it's looking like Ballard crapped the bed on this one - Leno is doing great. The rest of the Oline is putting in solid work right now and it's hopefully only going to get better with Q and Smith returning... even if Smith didn't play his best up until his injury. Defense Loved Leonards reaction after the first play being a false start on Houston.  I hate this defensive scheme with a passion. We gave up a 67% completion rate and 243 yards to a rookie and 124 yards rushing. That's concerning in my book. Still, we showed up and made some important turnovers, because without them it could have gotten ugly.  Happy to see Paye on the field again and with an interception of all things - I'm not accepting anything else, that call getting turned over was a joke even if it ultimately benefitted us. Still not nearly enough pressure from our Dline - they didn't have Tunsil on the field. I needed to see some sacks from our DEs. Ya-Sin is having a good season so far. Good for him and us! Willis had a good game, I think, as did Leonard, Moore and Okereke. Fantastic interception by Rodgers late in the game. Overall a lot of good things and something to build on. Now we just need to do it against the good teams and especially against the Titans.   Lastly, we beat one of the worst teams in football, comfortably, and we should have if we want to get to the playoffs. We have to beat the good/great teams if we want to get anywhere IN the playoffs and we haven't been able to for some time now. We had a good game against the Ravens up until we collapsed in the 4th quarter, and they just manhandled the Chargers. That's encouraging and heartbreaking all at the same time. I would like to see us beat at least one of either the Bills, Bucs or Cardinals this year, but we still have a long way to go to be one of the elite teams.
    • 17 games, 7 playoff teams, weak division   There's a long way to go.
    • Wentz looked damn good from the pocket.  He threw some dimes.  The TD Mo Allie dropped was the definition of a perfect pass.    
    • Was it his ankle he’s having trouble with?   seemed better with lateral movement and it sure seemed when he tried to sprint he pulls up.   he’s a straight up savage!   Go Colts!
