    Re: A Day in the Life (Of an Offensive Lineman)

    A post by my good friend Mr. A made me go dig this one up again.
    As I said in my original post, might bring back some memories for some of you cats..... ;D

    "Really Big Football Players"

    A good read, but not the one I was searching for. I never did ask my dad for the article, I guess I forgot about it.

    LOL, no worries My Sexy Little Pixie.
    If you think about it great, you know how much I love to read stuff like this over the normal drivel we get from the rags.......... ;D

    Edit:
    A exceptional read my friend.
    I never teased the lineman.
    In fact, I kindof felt sorry for them when we ran sprints as a team........Poor bastards.

    I need to dig around and see if I can find anything of an update.
    On a side note, wonder if we will ever see a 400 lb lineman.

    Good article's, I actually saved that first article when you first posted it Marrdro, just to send to friends and reread every now and then. Good stuff, especially at the March Madness portion of the the season.

    Other than some stuff Del used to post, the only place were I have been able to find something that goes through a players head as the line calls are done.

    By the way, I always struggled with line calls as well.
    Probably why I type about it instead of play it..... ;D

    "To be humble enough not to need all the attention. To be crazy enough to go through practice, mean enough to physically dominate some one else, and smart enough to pick up on the playbook and never, ever be allowed to make a mistake. Linemen don't play for the attention, the money, or the women. They play for the love of the game."

    Amen to that...

    Something slips from the practice field to real game, probably adrenaline makes you forget or struggle to remember your assignment..... I had my facemask twisted by the coach once or twice. ;D
