"The Nutcracker" will be back!

Quote:
MaioccoCSN: Singletary declares the nutcracker drill will return in 49ers training camp. Yes, risk of injury, coach admits, but important for leverage.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

FML

I wanna see VD vs PW in the nutcracker drill.

Alex Smith wants to go against Goldson in the Nutcracker:

Quote:
Asked who he's like to go up against in a Nutcracker drill - yes, Mike Singletary will reprise them this year - Smith first said Andy Lee, then changed his answer to Goldson. "He talks a lot," Smith said archly. "I'd like to get a little run at him. I probably outweigh him now."

This has bad idea written all over it but it would be cool to see (maybe at the end of the season tho).
It can't be that hard on them, it's like sumo wrestling.

Just ask David Baas.
Just a plain stupid idea. I don't see what you gain by it, when the players did it last year they had lingering injuries all season. This is not a 4 win team anymore im gonna be pissed if one of our top players go down...

The players don't gain a measurable ability. Singletary has spoke about being physical in all facets of the game and creating leverage on every play. If a player can't handle a physical practice, it's likely he can't handle playing physical in a live game. You simply can't say you'll be physical and then it'll just happen. You've got to practice being physical.

Also, when did you get the idea that the 49ers had lingering injuries all season? Aside from Nate Clements, no 49er missed significant time (more than one game) on the defensive side of the ball.
