  • New Dan Campbell Drill

    After putting players through the famed Oklahoma drill last week, Dan Campbell needed to come up with something this week to challenge the players to compete physically. Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel reported on the Hochman and Crowder show on WQAM that Campbell had all the veteran players surround the rookie and young players in a big circle. Then he challenged the young players to break out and escape. Perkins described the scene as looking like a massive rugby scrum in the middle of the practice field. This is how they started practice and the players then practiced all jacked up and enthused from the exercise.

    I LOVE IT!

    You have to give the man credit. He is reaching his players on a primal level. Let's hope it continues to produce wins.

    Good stuff. Dan isn't so far removed from the game that he doesn't remember how to get guys jacked up and having fun. He still talks to Parcells and seeks his advice as a HC.

    I like to that he's humble enough that he seeks council from others, including Darren RIzzi, who he named Asst HC to help with game decisions, as well as having both his Coordinators on the sidelines.

    Supposedly his nickname is ''Dan-tallica''. lol...

      How can any fan not love to read news like this. I am really curious to know how the practices were before Campbell took over. He is going so old school that I am wondering if Philbin ran some really soft practices.

            Wondering if he's going to try to come up with something for each week...

            - Firewalking: the team gets barefoot and practices on a bed of hot coals
            - Mystical Vocation: Each player is required to push pegs thru their nipples and dangle from the goal posts by rawhide until they see visions or pass out
            - Players are required to lay on the field while Rizzi drives over them in a golf cart screaming ''Man up, you pu*****''
            - Players have to dig pits and fight each other with sledge hammers
            - Players have pretend to be Bighorn Sheep and batter each other with helmet to helmet hits until one quits
            - The offense and defense takes turns making the other run an Iroquois Gauntlet
            - Gator-ade Waterboarding

            Ok, I'll stop... Lol...

            how brilliant is that.
            each week he does these drills you will start to see the players who fight and players who just do enough to get by.
            by the end of the season you will know the players who are fighters to the soul and players who aren't.
            the ones who aren't will be ones who may not be players who stick around to long in a dan campbell coached team,brilliant!!!!!!
