    Glad they have the STAA program up and running in August. Hopefully it helps limit the injuries this year. MM places a high priority on suppleness.

    How about you screw the analytics and go back to teaching basics and technique. Your analytics didn't tell you Hundley was gonna suck...

    Bunch of Bullcrap. Green and gold rah rah blal blah isn't going to put this team over the top Bud. Hard work in the weight room and on the practice field wins titles. All we have now is filler from a bunch of lousy reporters.

    I've been trying to work the word suppleness into a thread and this was the perfect chance!

    Every year is the best so far in some weird sub-category; best this year in amount of work done and quality.
    It seems that the better the offseason the worse the results. Just once you would like the big oaf to come out and say the whole offseason was lousy: GM acquisitions were useless, the rookies struggled to learn anything, and the veterans were lazy. Oh, and the coaches' anal retentiveness was causing copious amounts of heartburn and constipation. sb(tc(

    After a while, listening to "coach speak" from McCarthy becomes nauseating. This summer should at least get him a nomination for an Emmy, or Oscar. The guy has done nothing to make us believe that anything will change this year, except the offer of a new excuse (defense still learning), to explain failure.

    TC is a freaking joke now. With only being able to put them in pads a few practices and few games there is zero way to get these guys ready for the season. Even former players say that these guys need to put on pads and hit in camp as there is zero way you can learn by just putting on t-shirts and shorts and play patty cake with each other in drills.

    While i agree with 99% of this i dont have a problem with yoga and "soft tissue" stuff. Whatever that conists of. If it promotes flexability and keeps guys off the ir who cares. There is more to it then just banging and clanging in the gym. Diet should be huge for these guys also. Agility is needed for the perimeter players. I get your point though.

    As far as practices times. Yawn. Who cares. Mac is worring way to much on that crap. Granted my ideal time to workout is 3pm, as a profession it shouldnt be a big deal to these guys. I would even say stick with am to keep the knuckheads from being out all night. (Like that ever worked) the articles for the next month are be some real yawners ha

    I agree with players spending more time in muscle development programs that create supple muscles, not bulk. I've always believed that the extreme bulking these guys are doing today leads to more injuries, not lessening them. The number of hammies, and other muscle strains that develop point us in that direction.

    I do believe that they need to redefine what's acceptable as far as contact practices. I believe tackling, blocking, and pass rush are essential drills. They need to be focused in such a way to help improve those skills and create a better game atmosphere for runners and QBs as well.

    This idea that you can judge a guy's ability by having him walk through drills without seeing how he reacts in contact drills and scrimmages is not conducive to creating good football players.

    We're reaching a point where a lot of players "talk a good game," but don't deliver. I call it the "video game players." It's like playing Madden, and being super good at it, so thinking you can put on pads and do the same thing on the field. It just don't work that way.

    Granted, I still believe that a lot of the game is learned in the classroom, but you still have to execute the action, and to do it, you need to learn through repetition of action.
