Just think of it this way - they are getting it out of the way now so when the real thing is upon us, they'll be as healthy and strong as a mule!

The Trib-Review columnist John Harrris already is on Timmons for missing practice while implying he is out of shape


Time to grow up, Timmons


Being on the field for your first minicamp would also have helped squash those nasty rumors about you not always being in tip-top shape. One of the underlying reasons given for some teams allegedly removing you from their draft boards was a nagging question about your conditioning, given that you appeared winded between drills at your Florida State Pro Day in March.

I know, I know. Anybody can injure their groin. It was a fluke accident, right? But not everybody is the Steelers' top draft pick, who was personally endorsed by the new head coach who just happened to replace Bill Cowher. Not to mention, the new coach who already has his plate full because of the Alan Faneca situation, who doesn't have time to worry about whether those nasty rumors about his top draft pick not always being in tip-top shape are true.

I find it difficult to imagine that any team in the NFl removed Timmons from their draft board altogether based on 'conditioning' concerns.

Im not sure how the chain of logic leads Timmons to be reponsible for the hiring of Tomlin as replacement for Cowher or even what it has to do with anything?

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Gotta love these sportswriters who probably never played any football at higher than a high school level, if they ever played at all:

Quote:
What you don't have right now is a true understanding for what it takes to be a pro.
OK, Mr. Harris, when can I expect to see your name on the HoF ballot, since you obviously know everything there is to know about playing in the NFL?

Quote:
Lawrence, the more that you're on the field, the more times you can flash that quickness and burst to the football that makes you such a dangerous playmaker, the better off that you, and the Steelers, will be.
Um, it's a minicamp dude, not the AFCCG - lighten up.

Quote:
I know what you told me Saturday, that you can learn a lot just from observing, but that's my job, young fellow. I'm paid to observe.
IOW, play Monday morning QB. A piece of advice for you, Mr. Harris - zip it.
