I wonder who that player was and if he's still on the team.

Theme for next season should be Johnny Cash's "I'm going to Jackson". Hopefully it gets back to the "gladiator acadamy". We are soft, kind of spongy actually!!

Sadly, I think we are stuck with going to the resort for training camp for awhile. They moved heaven and earth to get it ready for us. I could be wrong, just speculating.

Re: Things that make you go hmmmm

Yep attitude is missing on the field. we saw signs of it at times but those games were to few and far in between to make a difference.

But in no way do I accept the media attempt to put a spin on this season and lat Rob off the hook.

His players. He allowed players to be cut. added 2 years of draft picks and FA to this team and as of now it appears he has done more damage than good. we playing like a cowgirls defense that divorced him. wearing fleur-de-lis can not hide this fact.

his schemes. oppsss scheme sorry not like he does a world of on the fly adjustments.

Most importantly it is his coaching we are seeing on the field.

40% players and 60% Rob.

just watch a the media tries to spend this year into a player issue not so much a coaching issue.

In all fairness he did do those things at the start of the season but the players were too dumb to make on-field adjustments. Remember all of the communication issues? Rob had to scrap all that.

I don't think the location is a problem, it was lack of focus.

I'd expect next season there will be some brutal practices there. The facility has everything we need to run a great training camp. The coaches just need to bring some nastiness along with them.
