    What does BB do to these guys? :p

    Well, hopefully he will be alright and eventually gets his stuff together. He's got a long way to go. We are all going to have to be patient with Sullivan. He didn't come from a very good NFL program. I'm not making excuses, just stating facts. I doubt highly that Haslett had a conditioning run before training camp.

    Am I the only one with visions of Private Pyle, pants down, donut in mouth, while the rest of the unit does push-ups?

    Re: PFT: Sullivan in convulsions after conditioning run

    Totally agree hope he's all right.
    Would like to be patient but as BB has said in the past "The train is moving,Don't have time to wait".
    It'll be interesting to see how much effort he'll be willing to give.
    I wouldn't be totally shocked if he retires!

    What a sad piece of human flesh getting paid all that money and can not complete a conditioning run. He has no problems running to the bank to collect to the paycheck.

    I wonder who this "league source" was that leaked this information to the media. BB is not going to be happy about this, IMO. He has never revealed the players who failed the conditioning test. I don't think that the media is allowed to watch the conditioning test.

    My sources report the media followed a trail of cream cheese splatter on the field,to jonathon Sullivans locker and then onto the PUP:rocker:
    Sorry,cheap joke.
    While BB would never leak this stuff,If it was as described It would have been an ugly scene,that few could overlook.

    What is involved in a conditioning run?

    I am now having those visions, too...
    Terrific movie. I'm glad my Drill Instructors didn't do that (or worse) to me during my 13 weeks of heaven at Parris Island.
    Frankly, I would have been shocked if Sully had passed.
    Here comes another vision...Sully waives bye-bye...

    Actually, this might be considered a positive sign. We all knew he was doomed to fail. But to run until you puke - that at least shows some intestinal fortitude.

    Perhaps there might be some fight in that dog after all.

    Or perhaps not. This will be an interesting story, assuming he makes it out of camp.

    It's a series of sprints with a limited recovery time between them. I don't know the length/number/time. I assume that it is set differently for different positions.

    Still an amazingly crude measure for a sophisticated outfit to use, in my opnion, but part of it is obviously the "boot camp", send-a-message-about-pushing-oneself-to-one's-limits psychology.

    Oh, it's the PFT rumor mill.:rolleyes: Although this may be true, I think I'll wait for a non-fiction source for corroboration.

    Ever since BB has been here and the conditioning run has been part of the opening day activities, there has never been any news as specific as this. Thus I have to wonder about the credibility, not defending Sullivan, however to be this specific about any part of the conditioning run makes me skeptical.

    well said and true.
    i agree.

    but if i have to be honest it looks quite negative (from the beginning...).

    anyway: let's hope

    It's very possible that BB wanted the info leaked as a way to motivate Sullivan. A page out of Parcell's book?

    Good thought but totally against his style.
