When 10 years' worth of labor peace came to the NFL in 2011, so did a massive change in the rules governing practice – during the season, the offseason and, most especially, in training camps. Lengthy double sessions, the dreaded by players two-a-days, became a shorter session and a walkthrough.Hitting anywhere outside the games themselves was minimized. Willie Snead Jerseys Days off during camp were required. Perhaps as worrisome to coaching staffs, not to mention players on the roster bubble, was a significant decrease in teaching time.Unless the collective bargaining agreement is opened before it expires after the 2020 season, none of that will change. And the complaints will remain."Some of the things, that you can't put a player in front of a player in the offseason even with Mark Ingram Jerseys a pad on," Cowboys linebackers coach Matt Eberflus said of one major problem. "That to me is restrictive because you have to use managers and those types of things. The rules are the rules and we abide by the rules. But I think that at times can be a little bit restrictive."So does Falcons guard Ben Garland, to a degree. Michael Thomas Jerseys "I think it depends on who you are," the veteran of three NFL seasons said. "If you are a guy who is really young and a free agent and doesn't have a lot of reps, it is really tough for you because it really limits your reps and your Kenny Vaccaro Jerseys experience."If you're an older guy, a vet like Alex Mack and Andy Levitre who have played a lot of years and you can just come out here and get these nice, crisp, hard and fast reps, I think it's very beneficial."That'd be tough as a rookie free agent to come in here and only get a few snaps to show yourself."Where coaches would run and rerun plays that didn't look right in the pre-2011 training camps, they now must turn to film study, videos, photos and other teaching methods in many cases. Some of the great strategists of the game, from Pete Carroll in Seattle to John Harbaugh in Baltimore, have become educators at OTAs, Drew Brees Jerseys minicamps and during the summer.Having veterans who have been on the same team for a while is a major boost to the coaches.
