Yeah, but Lovie Smith said himself that these private workouts conducted by the players are no substitute for the real thing that comes with mini camps and OTAs. I don't see what Enderle could possibly get out of this situation if he's not going to have a defense to look at, read, and try and dissect.
Again dagan , NO ONE is Saying these workout's close to real thing( they are not!).. BUT for a Qb that needs to learn the playbook, needs to get chemistry and timing with Wr's.. its one of the rare positions that CAN BENEFIT the player..those are thing he CAN work on,,, the reading "D" comes in real camp..
All three of those guys have the potential to start with their teams this year. Enderle has zero chance of that and the injury thing is just speculation on my part as to how his agent may be influencing that. Being there to get a copy of the playbook or dicuss terminology may be useful but I'll bet he gets little chance to throw since it's Cutler and Hanie who need the majority of the work with the receivers. I just don't see it being all that big a deal because he's two seats away from throwing an NFL pass this year and both Cutler and Hanie are fairly tough QB's and not particularly injury prone.
Maybe not, soulman. Remember that we essentially went through two quarterbacks throughout the season depending on the circumstances (Cutler and Collins to get to Hanie) before everything was said and done. Enderle might need to additional work, but I can certainly see the point of him not opting to go to the workouts because he's not under contract.
