Why? If a player thinks he doesen't need to attend OTA's but he still comes back ready to play why bother? If the player thinks they need the extra work then they show up. I really don't think Shawn Springs missing this is a big deal.

Its not a big deal that Springs hasnt shown up, its a big deal that he cant be reached by the team. He's a pro and should act like one.

That's what I'm saying. It's no big deal but everyone makes a big deal out of it. When a guy doesn't show up everyone goes nuts. The coaches, the media and even the players say things about other players when they don't show up. If it's not mandatory then why get all bent out of shape about it? So just make it mandatory or do away with it.

OTAs are dumb and I think Landry or Springs don't need to be there, according to Greg Novis, Springs is at los tol tecos getting totally tol tecoed out of his mind buying everyone shots and yelling.... WHOOO! WHOOO! SHOTS? WHO NEEDS A SHOT! WHOOO!

Re: Updated: Landry Reports to OTAs, Springs Still a No-Show

I think there is a place for off-seasoning conditioning and OTA's, they are a good thing for a team.

Organizations put those things in place primarily to protect thier investments in the players. They hire some of the best trainers and conditioning coaches in the world to do one thing....get them ready for 16-plus games of pounding that thier bodies are going to take.

If you look around the league the past few seasons, you will remember all of the little nagging hammys, quads, aches, pains and strains that sidelined players week in and week out. Teams that had those issues had players that "worked out on thier own" and did not participate in the off-season programs.

But the majority of teams whose players participated at team facilities in the off-season, thier injury list was substantially smaller throughout the season, for the most part.

So yeah I think there is a good place for OTA's and off-season programs, and players should take advantage of it.

Re: Updated: Landry Reports to OTAs, Springs Still a No-Show

Ironically OTA's might be even more important in the near future for young and new players alike (new meaning URFA). With the NFL possibly expanding the regular season by one game while subtracting 2 preseason games the young guys will have little time to work with the coaches.

It's not unusual for a veteran to skip out on OTA's and for some reason go to Arizona to train. As a a result the backups get more work with the coaches, which is valuable because when the season roles around 80% of the reps will go to the starters. Of course I'm estimating on the 80%, but in reality most of their football will be played on the scout team.

Maybe so, but that's not say OTA's prevent those nagging injuries. The Redskins are the kings of hammy injuries, especially last year when we had near perfect attendance during OTA's.
