Smiley, it isn't the old days anymore. The players who have their heads on straight are basically training all year around. In Jenkins case, he himself said he had to get bigger and stronger. That's the kind of place where you do that. And then, there is the whole thing with Kaepernick's fastballs. Packers players used to say that they had to catch Aaron Rogers passes year around to be ready for his fastballs because they just got to their hands faster than anything they had ever experienced in college or the pros. It's the same thing with Kaepernick only more intense. Pro Football focus says Kaepernick at times throws the fastest ball in the league.
This - IIRC, his passes were clocked as fast as 86 MPH. We're talking about a FOOTBALL going 86 MPH. Ask Randy about that dislocated finger he got from tying to catch one of those.
