Saints | Players will begin training camp with conditioning test
Fri, 16 Jun 2006 07:05:10 -0700

Les East, of The Advocate, reports the New Orleans Saints' players are on their own for the next six weeks until training camp starts. Head coach Sean Payton said each player has a schedule of what conditioning work they are expected to do on their own. When training camp starts, a conditioning test will be given to determine how well they have adhered to the program. Payton said, "These guys understand what they have to do to come in. They've worked hard to get to this position in the weight room and the running and lifting, by and large most of them understand what they have to do during that break, that gap. If for a period of two or three weeks, they don't do anything, then pretty much all that stuff they worked on, they can lose. I think they understand that."

I bet that the number of our penalties and turnovers are cut in half this year due to discipline and conditioning.

Good idea, if you ask me. This should separate the men from the boys.

I just hope no one gets caught doing anything stupid over the next six weeks. Very good time for players to get into all kinds of trouble. Hopefully, we will not read any headlines about Saints players...

Yeah, I like this move too. I really hope it works. If we still have the same amount of penalties and lack of discipline that we've had the last couple of years, Payton is going to lose his mind.
