    Someone from the Texans, i think, was told to go home for the day recently for just that reason. Looked it up - google the story and it was Texans versus Packers - some rookie corner...

    When exactly is this practice I figured today was the start. They probably have Thursday off. That leaves 2 days for practice

    Should be good... been a few years since I’ve done it! Lots of intrigue with this team this year...want to see Rosen and Williams in person more than anything.

    So you don’t account for whether he was doubled constantly?...which I heard was the case.

    I'm from the UK. Been a Phin for 35yrs. I used to play Safety/Cornerback and coached a little. I love my sports. I used to play football (both types ;)), cricket and rugby. I have never heard of another sport where you play another team in a pre-season 'practice'. It makes no sense. Pre-season squads have enough numbers and depth to practice against. If any competition is required then surely that's an actual pre season game. There is no value in these practices especially when you obviously can't go 100% and have zero intensity. It's just a pointless excersise imho. I'm asking. When did this suddenly become the norm?

    I went to my first joint Bucs-Dolphins practice years ago.
