    I am no CBA expert, in fact I really know nothing about it. But, from sampling of things read here and other places. It seems to me the players union worked the contract in the favor of themselves (as many would) when it comes to personal care. They did not want their employer telling them how to go about getting ready for their next season.By limited contact they no longer have to report on their individual off season workout. They wanted to be treated like adults and "trusted" they are doing it right. Therefore many of them are probably just doing it like they did through college, on their own. I could see this especially true for linemen and such. They are not needed to run 30 plus yards at a time so why train for it. So hit the power racks and get stronger and beefier. When in many cases they should really focus on being more limber in the process, takes away the robotic movements some have. Thus making them more fluid and really a little less susceptible to injury. Again not an expert, just an opinion.

    Not every team in the league believes that. Some teams think speed and quickness training is important for the offensive line.

    Add Chris Hoke as a leadership loss also. Was a career back up but trained/played like a starter. Heard on the fan the other day he was a bad ass in practice.

    I know not every team thinks that, which is a good thing. I am more for the agile, quick footed linemen than a big round ball of butter.

    I went back and read your post again, and I think I misinterpreted your position.

    Sorry about that. I think we're in agreement about linemen and conditioning.

    Thanks. I know that most Steelers fans are wishing that both teams lose, but I'm hopeful that if the Patriots execute on both sides of the ball, it will be an entertaining game.

    I would love to see the Pats take out the Harbaughs in back-to-back games.

    Probably the best consolation prize of the season, if both can be knocked one game from the Superbowl.
