Re: AP: Redskins growing weary of Gibbs' year-round routine

I find it very interesting that it is the BEST players who are saying this isn't working for them. A lot of these players know what (individual) training they need to do to be physically ready for the season. I know from personal experience (as a triathlete) that if I do leg work (with weights) during the period when I'm run training, I will get injured. I think that a lot of these guys may not be able to do the workouts they need in addition to the workouts they go through at the training camps. This may be one of the reasons we saw so many injuries this year. (We've had way too many injuries to players at the "speed" positions.) And if somebody's velocity isn't being pushed, bring in #28 to help them work on their afterburners.
Of course, we'll still need the receivers and JC to get together to get timing down.

I've said it before and it bears repeating: I hope Gibbs gets downright medieval next training camp - two a days, with full contact in full pads EVERYDAY. Hell, during Gibbs 1.0, the Redskins practiced in full pads the entire regular season, and were among the most physical teams on a consistent basis.

LOL!! It won't happen in this era but I would love to see it. Perhaps they can open training camp with the Oklahoma drill.
