    That's interesting. Is any other team doing it this way that you know of?

    I think it is an excellent move. There are some vets that need to be on field imo such as TJ and maybe some players coming off injuries and wanting to get some field time in, but for most part, I like it. This allows coaches more film to watch of the border line players. There will be some difficult choices this year.

    With Barwin missing all of OTA's I'm happy about this decision. I still don't expect all that much out of the rook, but this will certainly help him get his technique right so that he can work on it before training camp. I'd expect Kollar has a new project....good luck kid!

    Good. I want to get a look at the two undrafted RB's we took. Foster and Jeremiah Johnson.

    Yep and Moats also. We have absolutely nothing to hang our hat on that we have Slaton's complement or a 3rd down banger on the team.

    -1 for patting myself on the back, but I've thought about this for a long time. :)

    guess I could get <-1> for not paying attention the first time :cowboy1:


    I am glad Kubiak is doing this, fast pace for these kids, let them learn some basics and then they can carry the veterans helmets,get the veterans water later in the month or so :kingkong:

    i think its a good decision for the most part, although it might be beneficial for barwin & johnson to see mario/slaton at work too before training camp and see what they have to aim for (as well as working against duane etc)

    From your lips to the coach's ear. Pretty impressive.

    Hey, there are a lot of 1st and 2nd year guys that need to bring it this year and here's a good way to do it. All through the 2ndary, the LBs, Barwin,Caldwell, one of the UDFA RBs (both?) there are guys who need to step up to make this team dominate. I really hope to see a crazy good special teams this year. We certainly should.

    How 'bout that for an incentive to young and old? Work, deserve your spot and we'll take it easy on you. I wonder what Dunta would get if he came back, Wright/film time or get on the field time?
