    What's the pool on someone skimming the title then posting about him "getting off on the wrong foot" or "lacking dediciation/probably cut in camp".

    I'm saying by the end of the 2nd page, who's taking the action?

    Yep. The NFL is a specialized case, but students from quarter/trimester schools often have trouble fitting their schedules to summer programs like internships. (And as a one-time TA at such a school, I have to say the short courses are kind of bizarre. Students have to choose term project topics when they've barely started to study a subject.)

    Are there ways around the rule like working out with the team's trainers and strength and conditioning coaches or position coaches to learn the playbooks and get into the team's conditioning program before that deadline or is it pretty much a "do nothing until this deadline" rule?

    I have a vague memory of Tully B.C. going through this as well.

    I wonder if BB knew about this; if not, I can just imagine him having a chat with a scout. As they say on Mad Men ... "Close the door; have a seat ...":eek:

    I'm guessing he knew.

    If he's met graduation requirements, he should be allowed to go to work.

    If he still has requirements to meet, the rule is defensible.

    Is it an NFL rule, an NCAA rule, or do both organizations have rules governing this sort of thing?

    Price has clearly lost his fire. I wonder how many draft picks we can get for him.

    I'm very interested to see how Taylor plays...I watched his youtube clips and he seems like an over achiever...but is he really nfl quality? Then there is an interview with him at his house after getting drafted, you can tell he's a small town kind of guy. I just wonder if he will be awe struck and overwhelmed or if he can put his head down and prove any doubters wrong. I'm pulling for him.

    He has all the measurable talent; speed height, etc. And he's labeled extremely athletic by scouts, and I want to think that after a certain other receiver was drafted, that Belichick would scout better for intelligence in a receiver. So he'll be able to handle the pressure of the NFL.

    For some reason I'm pulling for this guy really hard too, as well as Hernandez. (I like all our rookies, but these two stick out to me)

    Thanks for the inadvertant heads up on this. I think the Patriots just got a few more hardcore fans in Ohio.

    I'm rooting for him to make it.

    Foxboro isn't exactly overwhelming, even to small-town guys like PRice and myself ;)

    Still though. Tough break for the kid. Surely all the rookies want to be there from day 1 to try and impress the coaches. He now, unfortunately will have to play catch up along the way. I too hope this kid makes it.
