I don't think so.
Players have been dropping like flies the past several years during training camps.
I believe two years ago there was something like 15 players league wide that suffered season ending injuries during training camp or injuries that required lengthy rehabs well into the season.

IMO these guys don't get enough rest in the off-season, their bodies never get a chance to heal and recuperate before they're back into OTA's, Minicamps and conditioning.

This is the "experts" excuse of why Michael Vick will fail once again, but yet they will not stop hyping him.

Lelie in Atlanta and Denver gets Duckett??

That would be a steal for the Broncos............they would get another respectable running back while getting rid of an underachieving malcontent.

It will be a preseason default for Vick.

As long as the dateline is anywhere but Latrobe, Pa. I feel like the guy with the flying phobia seconds before takeoff as we go into camp.

Vick apologists have another out. What's new?
