Leave it to Feldman9000 to think these kind of practices are a good idea.

I dont see why it would be such a bad idea if all they did was wrap up and no one could hit the QBs (Just like it is done in mini-camp) At the very least it would make the players compete harder which in turn could only make them better

 

Nevermind, I just saw how Tom Brady got hurt....

That's exactly how it's supposed to be, unfortunately there are players that don't care (Vontaze Burfict, Adrian Clayborn).

This would be like recording our practices and giving the tape to another team to watch...

I've been seeing a lot recently about teams practicing with other teams and scrimmaging. Can someone explain (besides JR being cheap) why we do not do this? New England and Tampa are doing it this week, Atlanta and Cincy did it last week. I remember years ago at Furman, we'd practice with the Falcons occasionally. Would this not be beneficial? Get an idea of what some other teams are fielding or atleast the mental preparation of going against someone else in practice.

 

I definitely wouldn't do Atlanta, but we have the Titans and Redskins close enough.

 

 

New England quarterback Tom Brady left practice with an apparent knee injury. It happened when Tampa Bay defensive end Adrian Clayborn was bull-rushing tackle Nate Solder, who fell into Brady’s legs. 

Clayborn said he was just doing what he was supposed to do.

I really dont see ANY benefit from doing this. As others have said, the team already plays 4 full games in the preseason. No reason whatsoever to increase the chance of your players getting hurt.

I've always thought it is extremely stupid to scrimmage with another team.

It sounds and even looks cool when watching Hard Knocks, and there doesn't seem to be much downside if its an AFC paired with an NFC team who won't play each other except once every 4 years outside of the Super Bowl.. but in reality when seasons are more dependent on how well teams avoid the injury bug rather than experience, the con's outweigh the pro's.
