FightinIrish26 I get what your saying to a pin, I’m not saying he needs to be able to bench press a volkswagen, I most likely used the wrong example I shot too high. But say a quarterback trying to become a starter and show what hes worth, if he has the ability and resources to be able to get stronger without getting hurt (the team pays for everything) would it hurt him to get faster or stronger ?
I’ve seen some supposid NFL player workouts (they were in magazines so they probably were just making stuff up) but most of them didn’t consist of alot of benching alot of it was core work and total body workouts. So I don’t think its bench that would put them in the hall of fame but it defently would hurt a upcomming qb.
I mean after all the Lions… could use… alot 3-13 We need hope in Detroit we need a miracle[/quote]
Any football player that’s still trying to make it could probably afford to be bigger and stronger. All I’m saying is that if you’re a starter in the NFL, there probably ain’t much higher you can go!
It just irritates me that people forget so much about sport specific things- if you’re a QB, you need to throw the fuckin ball. If you can do that well enough, you’re golden. If you’re a boxer, you need to hit hard, and if you’re a linebacker you need to know how to tackle. That’s just all there is to it. Call it a pet peeve of mine, I guess. Strength doesn’t make up for lack of skill.
And your Lions…you motherfuckers need God on your side or something…or a new owner and GM!
