Football is brutal, no free passes. You almost have to be lucky, and good conditioning doesn't hurt at all. You have to fall right, roll right and sometimes that's prevented by a really big dude. We got banged up the past two seasons. We got through it in 09' and just could not get it done through last years injuries. You can bet we will have our share this year. We have to figure out a way to still get the job done with the plug-ins, short & long term, and just hope the breakdowns aren't in the drive train.

Well the weather conditions under which the Saints go to camp are unparalleled when it comes to heat and humidity that's one of the reasons I thought the change to Oxnard was great.

And I'd also want to put out the argument for Pilates training 'cos it's a well proven scientific fact that it helps athletes - especially those in contact sports - to increase their core muscle strength and to prevent injuries caused by f.e. weight lifting by targeting various muscle groups and strengthening them without necessarily building muscle.

Damn, here we are, three weeks after the new CBA agreement and less than a week after our first preseason game and we are already concerned about injuries. Almost 20% of our roster is missing practice because of injury. This is starting to suck.

Yoga would be great for core conditioning. So would Pilates. I know these guys stretch but maybe we should evaluate each player and give them individual stretching exercises. Flexibility is very important to me and my rugby game.

I am sure most of the issues is because of the lock-out.
