    It allows them to carry more players early in camp. I'll bet most of these guys have minor dings they want to heal. So as long as they are on PUP they can carry 7 more live tackling dummies for drills.

    They are gaming the system right now. NE did the same thing with Welker.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I hope Cody sucks, but we as Steeler fans should know that passing the conditioning test on the first day of training camp has little bearing on the performance of a NT in a 3-4.

    We aren't talking about the "miss 6 games" PUP list correct?

    No...it's the Reserve/PUP list that requires a player to miss the first 6 games. We are still at the point of the Active/PUP list. But if they decide to allow any of these guys to practice at all, and want to put him back on PUP, it would have to be the Reserve list and the mandatory 6 week vacation.

    That's what I thought RB.

    It may be that they're trying to bring 7 more guys in... but those 7 aren't allowed to practice until they come off the list. Remember when Hampton was on it... all he was allowed to do was run off to the side.
    and ed reed has been dinged up for a while.
    Harris didn't finish the conditioning test along with Cody, so, that's gotta hurt them a little.
    I'd rather they let the tackling dummies practice then the guys that may actually play.

    I'm sure that Ngata and Lewis will find was of motivating the rook.

    Maybe...but this is not an 8 year vet who has been to multiple pro bowls....this is a kid who should be gunning to impress.

    It shows that he is either unable to get that large body into shape....or unwilling to pay the price. Either way it is not a good sign for him.

    From your lips...

    I can't imagine what it will be like to run on them if both he and Ngata are in the game simultaneously. Those are wide bodies- athletic wide bodies.

    I believe Shawn had a man-crush on Cody and wanted him to be a Steeler. I remember the "Caption This" thread when that photo of Cody first came out. It was hilarious!
