    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.
