Bills TC Day 14 (8/13) - joint practice with Panthers in Spartanburg, SC

Recommended Posts

Going to repost this here: 

 

Anyone have any insight on how these things work? 

 

For example, are individuals held together? Are Bills RBs and Panthers RBs going through the same drills together? 

 

Or how about the QBs? Is Cam Newton running through Ken Dorsey drills with Allen and co or vice versa? 

 

I would think these these periods are held separately and then they come together at certain times for competitions 

 

I get the obvious 1v1, OLvDL, 7v7 and 11 on 11 but how about the more individualized periods handled?

Another useless way to rack up injuries.

 

Football isn't curing cancer or rocket science, you don't need all these practices before the regular season.

Looking forward to seeing our D vs Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel. Samuel is emerging as their #1 WR over DJ Moore. He’s a RB/WR hybrid but they are using him mainly at WR

This does nothing to answer my question. Aside from the heat, no fighting, the bills connection, I can’t find it. There’s a reason I asked here, hoping knowledgeable posters could help. I don’t need a link to google.

You have obviously never played professional sports (and yes I have) you ABSOLUTELY need practices like this. In fact, I dare say IF coached well it can help prevent injuries on game day.

I don’t know either - anyone attend the joint practices the Bills held in recent years vs Browns and Steelers?

 

guess we will find out soon

Correct. There is a reason that tons of teams do it every year.

I think if there’s offense and defense in the drill it’s both teams. Like 7 on 7 passing it would be one team offense one team defense but with individual drills like rbs running through cones or qbs working on footwork it’s with your team only. 

 

So Josh Allen wouldn’t practice handoffs to McCaffery

Maybe that will help explain what the "game plan" is 

or not

Every once in a while someone says something on this board that literally makes my jaw drop. 

 

This was one of those moments for me.

Get out of here with that crap.

 

UB started training camp on the 31st of July and has their first game August 29th.  I'm sure most programs are the same.

 

Over 6 weeks of practice, 4 preseason games is overkill.  To add a scrimmage on top of that is just dumb.

 

As soon as week 1 hits, everything changes anyways.

 

This isn't life or death.

I know when I think of the type of excellence we are trying to achieve, the first thought that comes to my mind is UB.

There isn’t an added scrimmage. They are practicing down there for 2 days and then one of their 4 preseason games is vs the Panthers on Friday. It’s the exact same amount of practice and game time as if they stayed home, but they get To practice vs guys who aren’t on their own team.

The guy who goes to the SB and beats the Bills every year does joint practices every year and appears to find great value in them so yeah, I’ll go with what belichick does as a sign that it helps.

These practices are controlled.  People seriously need to always be looking at the negative all of time.  Believe it or not, this will probably PREVENT injuries!

I'm hoping one day McBean can find a way to trade for McCaffrey. You know since RBs are a "dime a dozen" lol

Instead of this, they could be doing just shell practices back in OBD where they put millions into the treatment facilities.

 

We will see what people say when multiple guys end up injured.

You're not going to believe this, but Belichick plays his starters more in preseason than any other coach.  They also win more than any other team.
