I am a bit worried about the tensions between the players and the front office this season. If players see these moves as simply preparations for a lockout (true or untrue), they may and will resent it. How hard will a player play for a boss who is sticking it to them? Not very.
Do you feel damage control needs to happen at some point this offseason? Publicly or in the film room?
i think the only players who may need damage control are the new "veterans".
i think the younger less experienced simply see an opportunity.
