There is small doubt in my mind that some teams are losing ground within their preparation for 2011 because of towards the unique conditions with the offseason.
Carucci: Is this working out?

A number of teams have tried player-organized routines throughout the lockout this offseason, but not every groups is experiencing the advantages, writes Vic Carucci. More...

There are many things groups and players should conquer. Rookies not obtaining a start toward their NFL indoctrination inside a post-draft minicamp. No organized team activities. Coaches having no clue which limited and unrestricted totally free agents will be back. Still, for all the problems, some teams are really pulling ahead with the competitors thanks to offseason preparation.

Particular elements are helping groups have a much better chance to hit the ground running whenever the lockout is over. Continuity in the coaching employees is a major as well as. Having a accurate leader at quarterback is also an advantage, especially 1 who can organize practices and bring along the rookies. The same may be said to get a defensive presence that can obtain the unit on the exact same page.

Teams that hired a new coach are even further behind. At this point, it seems the Jaguars and Dolphins were smart to retain their coach and get via 2011 with some stability in the top. Coaching modifications in Carolina, Cleveland, Denver, Minnesota, Oakland, San Francisco and Tennessee have led to each team also bringing in two new coordinators. There are nine much more new coordinators across the league and they will be installing their philosophies this summer time rather than training.

The groups falling behind the most seem to be the Panthers, Vikings and Titans. All three have new coaches, a rookie quarterback who can't organize team practices along with a scheme the players cannot truly function on without help from coaches.
Conversely, playoff teams from a season ago are already great, but are creating much more distance in between on their own and the upstart teams that need guidance, direction and leadership. Look at how Drew Brees got the Saints collectively last week, with 37 gamers working out.

As one common supervisor stated to me this week, "A couple of much more weeks of this lockout and it could be a misplaced period for some clubs that just won't possess the time for you to get ready."
