Tomlin wants in season practice to be as intense as training camp?
I heard this on the local (northeast PA) radio today; no sources given. The announcer said exactly that, that Tomlin wants to keep in season practice as competitive as training camp.
Accepting that as true, I'm not so sure it's a good idea. It might work just fine in weeks 1, 2, and 3, but it might be problematic in week 12. Especially after we have already had a 5 game preseason rather than 4 like everyone else. And then there is the risk of injury, and the questionable idea of having banged up guys practicing at full speed mid-season; the guy might be playable on Sunday if he is allowed to cruise during the week. I'll take Polamalu at 50% during the week and 90% on Sunday, over Colclough at 100% during the week and on Sunday.
If this is true, I call it Tomlin's first serious miscalculation.
