CAMP CANCELED PER NFL NETWORK


Recommended Posts

The ticker on NFLN states falcons training camp has been canceled? WTF?

Coach Smith said the players would still be at the facility working in the weight room all week. I don't think they need to see them running around in shorts anymore.

Woodson was talking about this on nfl network last night. He said with today's OTA's there was not really a need for mini camps. He said the coaches have already seen what the players can do in shorts; he also said some players are great in shorts, but not in pads and visa versa. Mini camp would be merely be more of the same of what they already know from OTA's. Time would be better spent working on strength and conditioning.

Sounds logical to me.

Wait... logic? In football? Really? Wow!

Plus - if I remember correctly, it was listed as a voluntary mini camp. Anyway, Coach Smith & Co. decided to let the guys have the extra days off, but they are under orders to maintain their weight training regimens from now until TC in July.

You can workout anytime.Running plays would be more instructional.There must be more to it.

Like maybe logisitics?

Most all of the coaching staff needs to move their families, plus there are still a few draft picks to get signed. It'd be nice if everyone was settled and all 11 picks ready to go in July.

Just a thought.
