I think this is the best thing for him. He isn't getting any publicity. I know they made a big deal about his free flo do or whatever last offseason.. but I like Reggie under the radar for a change.

I have to admin, when the commercials would play on the jumbotron in the Dome, the Dome would kinda go silent after he was hurt this season.

Well, he's had about eight weeks already. He needs to get in the gym with the guys and hit the weights hard. Not only to improve as a player but also to show the rest of the team that he's comitted to getting better and winning.

I realize that but at the same time hes a kid, in his early 20s, with a lot of living to do. I didnt say he shouldnt be staying in shape and working out. But to think he needs to constantly be in NO working out is asking a bit much from him, or anyone. Let him take his vacations and enjoy the offseason a little bit. I think sometimes people expect way too much of him.

I agree and I think 8 weeks is a pretty long vacation. How long is it for the average Joe working at the factory? He's in his 20s making millions of dolalrs on a job that demands that your in perfect physical condition.

WV, I am a Soldier. I have to stay in top shape all year long. I make a less than 68K a year(not too bad for Mississippi). I have a commitment to my comrades, my troops that look to me to teach them, keep them safe, to prepare them for war, and to protect this Nation of ours and it's people. If I (and many other countless Soldiers) don't commit myself 100% to that...well, people die. Commitment to others, is a hell of a responsibility. Reggie has that responsibility, maybe not life or death commitment, but maybe the death of a team. Kid or not, he is making the money of a man. This is no longer for high school glory or for the Grand Ole College. This is for a coorperation, sponsor's, and most importantly....ticket paying merchandise buying FANS.

I understand about taking breaks and getting away from your job to relax. However, Reggie has not had a "Good" year in the NFL, yet. If there are issues with this team not meshing with him as a "Unit", he SHOULD want to prove to his team that he is commited 100% to THEM.

With his recent acts (in the news), Reggie is not showing the fans nor his team, that he is commited.

The same expectations are asked from everyone that has a job, from the fry guy at Burger King to the CEO of Nabisco. Commitment to the "Team", not to yourself. Selfless Service, a very hard personal value to live by, indeed.
