    The Combine is underway!

    OK, so technically it got underway yesterday when the OL, ST, and TEs arrived.
    They are going though medical and psych reviews today.


    But this morning the QBs, WRs, and RBs arrive, with the defensive positions arriving tomorrow and Sat.

    I know everyone is the most interested in the workouts, so here is the schedule by group. link

    Workout days
    Saturday - OL, ST, TE
    Sunday - QB, WR, RB
    Monday - DL, LB
    Tuesdau - DB

    And I am sitting here at work without my NFL network.
    Anyone else wish they would change over to High Def?

    Wouldn't matter if you were watching NFLN right now anyway.
    They don't start live coverage until Saturday for the workouts...
    Still, we should start hearing some Wonderlic scores leaked to the media tonight. ;D

    Who will be the Vince Young of the 2007 class?
    The poor score didn't hurt Vince's play last year.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Re: The Combine is underway!

    I am not a huge fan of the Wonderlic test.
    Intelligence is a touchy subject, and not nearly as cut and dry as we though it was when the Wonderlic, Staford-Benet, or WISC tests were originally developed.
    Plus, the Wonderlic isn't a true intelligence test, nor is it a true aptitude test (like the ACT and SAT claim to be).
    It is kind of a hybrid of the two, and that is some pretty subjective ground.

    I support doing some kind of generalized (ie.e not football specific) testing to measure aptitude and problem solving skills, but I just don't like the way that the Wonderlic does it.

    Re: The Combine is underway!




    I was watching some of the combine yesterday...





    The best thing I came across was Mike Singeltary ( ex-bears LB) was running drills on foot work for linemen..





    They where doing a side shuffle/step over/and return type drill on dummies laying on the ground....






    At one point, Mike moved in and was doing them himself, showing the proper footwork and technice........







    HE WAS AWESOME TO WATCH, and put all those young guns to shame....







    I bet he could still play and hold his own today, he looked in great shape and probably 20 pounds lighter than his playing days..



    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    VN,


    I watched that for about an hour yesterday when my wife (yes she was watching) said, I thought they held this indoors.
    DUH.
    I was watching the Seniors working out recorded earlier this year. (I think).

    A word of advice:
    You have a GOOD WOMAN there, Marrdro...do whatever you have to do to keep her!
