The two-a-day schedule sure lives up to its rigorous reputation.
This morning’s half-pads practice ended around 11 a.m., leaving the players about three hours to relax before reconvening for meetings starting at 2:15 p.m. Coaches, on the other hand, didn’t get a break. They hustled back to the office right away to watch film from the morning workout, squeezing in the breakdowns so they can apply the lessons during this afternoon’s meetings and practice, which begins at 4 p.m.
But the day is far from over then, as more meetings and film sessions are on deck for tonight, starting at 7 p.m. and scheduled to last well past 9 p.m.
