    With regard to Bradford, has he been tackled "lightly" at all?

    Have they practiced him going down in different directions?

    I've long been interested in this, sure they can't keep him in bubble wrap all this time then let him get drilled (potentially) this week?

    Or IS THAT how it's done?

    The longer he has to heal the better! Same with Jake Long.

    Not sure why you would find it odd. It's that way in every training camp. I guess you are saying you think he needs to get a few its in.... not sure what that would accomplish.

    I doubt he goes through the game Sat without being hit at least once or twice, a meaningless game so FWIW bangin' him around now would be sort of unduly risky and accomplish nothing except to prepare him to get hit in a preseason game .
    Like you said they all wear the red jersey in practice and aught to,can you imagine the furor among the Bradfordphiles if he got hurt in practice from a hit that was planned ????????????????????????????????????????????????? TO HAPPEN???????????????????????????????? THE HUIMNANTY I TELL YOU,it'd be a thread locker.

    Sam remembers what being tackled is like - as do the other QBs. And, as mentioned, they will all get hit soon enough.

    Yeah, I'm having a Trent Green flashback now. Limit risk. 'Nuff said.

    I would think a few "calculated" tumbles to the turf would help Sam ease his mind. I mean he hasn't been tackled since he's been injured.

    Seems logical to me anyways.

    He can do that in his own backyard, couldn't he?
    Like others have said, if he were to get injured by being tackled in drills, then the internet would implode.
