it's not training camp..Have fun
It is a bit staggering how little time these guys have  
Jimmy Googs : 7/11/2017 5:23 pm : link
to practice with pads on & hitting before they hit the regular season.

two a days were the best  
gtt350 : 7/11/2017 5:31 pm : link
now even the amount of down time during one practise is amazing
Training camp practices are much easier & shorter nowadays

Than say the 80's, 90's or even under TC.

Off-season OTA's and mini-camp, are in my mind, super important and I don't care if you are a super veteran (OBJ) or not. Its about the team and helping the young guy out as much as anything else. That is how I come out.

I used to feel the same way about Fairleigh Dickinson in Madison, NJ as it was only a 15 minute drive from my parents house in New Providence. So long as the team gets the work they need that is all that matters.
The practices NOT OPEN to the public or media are not listed yet

Lets not forget those. I forget how many there were last year but they definitely happened a few times.

Four pre-season games and August 11 can't come fast enough for me.
11 Practices?  
RobCrossRiver56 : 7/11/2017 7:13 pm : link
And they call that training camp? Training camp used to have 8-10 practices a week for 4 weeks.

They better have the pads on for every single practice. No shells.

Rant over..

Every year I say this

I can't believe the first preseason game is only about 3 weeks away!
hell they used to have saturday scrimages  
gtt350 : 7/11/2017 7:38 pm : link

At some point the players union

must realize these restrictions are doing harm to their membership and hopefully negotiate a set of rule amenable to both sides.

If the concern is things that do harm to the membership, the first thing to go needs to be thursday night football.

Fassel's practices  
BigBlueWhale : 7/11/2017 10:12 pm : link
were physical as hell. Live hitting. Grueling 2 a days. He got a country club persona but he ran a tough camp.

I'm sure many remember Seubert vs. Hammer. Worth the trip alone.
Anyone interested in a meetup?

I have a few of those days free.

We should post a separate note a few days before camp starts and definitely meet up. I'm ordering a BBI shirt today just so I can sport our colors at one of the practices.

Agreed Gary?
