    I hear Emery is employing the Tarrot Cards before the draft too. They are pulling out all the stops.

    Sounds like the front office is playing games...

    What type of non-football oriented coach should we hire next?
    Would a preacher be able to turn our DL around?
    Our safeties can't pursue, can martial arts teach them proper angles?

    I have a question, should I be starting to worry about next season?

    This just out. Bill Murray just "acquired" our new defensive signal caller for next season. We won't be doing a 3-4 or a 4-3, but rather a "Groundhog Hybrid" that is shadow-based.

    They also hired a pass rush specialist coach from KC. His biggest challenge will be to explain to our Defense just what the heck a pass rush is.

    I'm a little skeptical of this report, BUT I've heard of martial arts being employed in the trenches to help parlay a good offensive lineman's ability to get their hands on them, to getting a better pass rush.

    Kyle Long trained with Jay Glazer (MMA) and Long said it help his technique a lot.

    I was initially joking around with this thread, but to get serious (for a change) I can see how martial arts skills could help a player battle in the trenches.

    I was reading Long's description of one of the training routines (sorry but I can't find the link now). It involved a dug out area with chain link fencing on the top. Long had to fight people off while in a squatting position. Some of the opponents were NFL D-linemen and others were MMA fighters. Long said it forced him to keep his center of gravity really low and improved his hand fighting techniques.

    I found the link! They did film one of these sessions behind Halas Hall last week. Kyle is convinced that handling Suh this coming season will be much easier after enduring this workout daily - all off season long. I tend to agree after viewing it.
