Shows the kid is not afraid of hard work. i am just saying i think crabs can learn just as much from moss in camp , if not more, than jenkins can learn by running a hill with a x niner I would also rather have crabtree in camp with his team mates catching passes from his quarterback and not running some hill with jerry rice..i am well aware of how great jerry rice is but he is not a coach on our team, he is just a mentor. running some hill with rice will not make this kid into a great player. going to practice and doing things over and over l with his team mates and quarterbacks is the key

I don't think running the hill is supposed to make anyone a great player, it didn't make Rice a great player, but the hard working mentality it takes to want to do things like that does help make someone a great player.
Working out with teammates certainly helps a players development and chemistry, but I don't see why doing one means you can't do the other. The workouts today were for the vets, so Jenkins wasn't there. He Spent his off day running up some monsterous hill. It didn't stop him from catching passes from Alex, so I don't know why the two workouts are being compared.
