    I agree with ya, some new blood in the water might do some good.....but there are those that will think you are wrong because the hack that we have now has won "awards" for being just so darn good at what he does......... catch that sarcasm.........

    That is a great article and as someone in the profession I agree with a ton of what Turley does. I know there are some coaches where I am at that don't like or don't get what I am doing but I don't have injuries and I have good functional strength that translates directly to the field. I get all kinds of eye rolls when I start new athletes out with the body weight stuff as Turley mentioned he did but I believe in it and its awesome to see that he is doing it at such a high profile place.

    I don't need to know what Lovat's program is to know that it is not working. The hamstring epidemic is a direct indication that something is fundamentally wrong with the off program. That award is bs fluff recognition that is given because of team success and in no way reflects any measurable amount of excellence.

    There are hundreds of different programs and philosophies out there and I'm sure Lovat's is based on something that has had past success but it is time for a change.

    Don't worry, MM will do a "thorough evaluation" of the strength and training program and nothing will change.

    Since some NFL teams have been out there to look over this program, I have to wonder if the Packers were one of them.
    We will probably never know.

    Sadly this. It's painful to experience this kind of denial when you have a glaringly obvious problem and nobody seems interested in making a change.
