    Let's hope Parcells can be flexible on a good number of things.

    I'm hoping if Sparano's hired, he'll have seen the benefits and pitfalls of both, and fall somewhere in between.

    I honestly hope the coach is responsible for TC and not Parcells, you guys are treating him as though he's the coach.

    Hard and Soft camps have very little bering on major season ending injuries. Ive said this before, and will keep doing so. No correlation at all. Having a "hard" camp will do nothing to cut down on concussions, ACL teams etc. It might help in terms of smaller injuries like ankle rolls and such, but even that is doubtful.
    It just gets you more used to hitting and game speed coming out of the gates. Personally, in high school my coaches always ran a moderately hard practice, with a good amount of both hitting and no-contact shorts drills, but a heavy focus on conditioning. Especially in the SoFlo heat, conditioning is a big part of the games, and I feel that should be a focus. Seeing us in some of those early games, those big lineman huffing and puffing after the first quarter was not a good feeling. Run run run I feel is more important than hit hit hit.

    It's true he won't be the coach, but it's not too hard to assume that whoever is chosen, he'll have to answer how he's going to run TC before he's hired.

    I wonder if our fairly easy camp last year contibuted to the amount of injuries we had. I know a tough camp can't prevent major injuries but,... what happened to this team was beyond belief.

    Exactly, Bill is not our HC or GM, after he helps get the right staff in place, Bill is only going to be a guy you can get an opinion from, no more no less.

    Cam ran a really soft camp mostly for the vets. That's why they were gassed by the 3rd quarter come the regular season.

    I think we would ebenfit from a much tougher training camp than the spa sessions Cam provided, but not as tough as Satans where people are cursing him and hes making players cry. ha
