I think the fact that they are having live scrimmages is fantastic. The reason is obvious................if players get used to being hit early in the off-season then come the first game of the season the running backs, receivers, o-line, d-line, everyone are going to be ready to play............the practices do sound physical and IMHO I think teams that practice like this (instead of patty cake practices) play a lot harder, hit a lot harder, and are a lot tougher. Are we taking a chance of players getting hurt....yes!!! But, I think it will only benefit us in the long run!!! Good call coaches!!!
