Conditioning Test Over, Football Next

From River Falls, Wisconsin

The Chiefs had their dreaded conditioning test Friday morning on the practice field here at UW-River Falls and now the focus goes from conditioning to football.

“I thought as a whole it went very well,” said head coach Todd Haley. “It was about what I expected. There were some surprises both ways, but overall about what I expected. It’s a difficult portion of the physical and a whole I felt pretty good.”

Haley would not talk at all about those players who failed the conditioning test. The coach made the session off-limits to media and fans. He did indicate that a number of players will not be passed on the team physical for a number of reasons, and thus will be unable to practice Saturday morning.

“We don’t have anybody that’s real far off and that’s what I feel good about,” Haley said of those players that will start practice on the sideline. “None of these are long term deals and we should have everybody going pretty soon.”

Haley would not name those players as well, saying he had not yet talked with all of them about the situation.

During the OTA sessions QB Brodie Croyle and RB Kolby Smith did not take part as they rehabbed knee injuries. At various times DE Glenn Dorsey and DT Ron Edwards joined them.

Croyle said Friday that he’s been cleared for 100 percent participation in practice. Dorsey had ice on his left shin as he left the cafeteria.

“Tomorrow the real fun starts,” Haley said with a smile. “It’s such a short amount of time here. We will have the pads on every day, until we think we know enough. We have to get ready in a short amount of time and the only way to get ready for football, in my opinion is with the pads on and get your body ready to play. “

    Sure would be interesting to know who failed. Guess you gotta’ respect Haley’s decision not to tell, though.

    Is Dorsey ever going to get healthy?

    Who you think failed?

    BRIAN WATERS?


  • July 31, 2009  - Scott says:

    Probably Cassell failed.

    Just as i said earlier,

    “A roster move will have to accompany the signing of Jackson since the Chiefs roster currently lists 81 players. That move could include a player being waived when Jackson signs or a move may have already been made by placing a player on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform list. PUP lists must be declared on the first day of camp and, thus far, no annoucement has been made by the club to whether or not any PUP transactions were made today.”

    Brodie Croyle ready for action – that’s great news!

    Chiefs QB depth chart as of today Brodie Croyle #1

    Tyler “The Little Big Man From Coastal Carolina” Thigpen #2

    Mutt Cassell & Ingle Martin vying for the #3 emergency spot…

    No. YOU fail. Because we all know who you are. And we all know which posts are real…and which ones are not. The only thing you succeed at doing is looking like an ass. So if that’s your intent…mission accomplished.


  • July 31, 2009  - Scott says:

    I’m sorry. It’s that time of the month for me.


  • July 31, 2009  - gorillafan says:

    I think it shows respect that he didnt tell the media who failed. That will speak volumes to the players and the individual guys that did fail.


  • July 31, 2009  - SG says:

    No it won’t.


  • July 31, 2009  - True Red & Gold says:

    I know who never fails me! Rin’s mom!!!!


  • July 31, 2009  - Bre says:

    I heard that Dorsey is one of the ones who failed the test.

    I know who never fails me! SG’s mom!!!!

    The Red Zone says Glenn Dorsey admitted that he failed the conditioning test, but he was also icing his leg so that could’ve been part of it.

    once again rin fails everyone on here , never do we care to read your posts


  • July 31, 2009  - Bre says:

    Rin also failed the test as well.


  • July 31, 2009  - gorillafan says:

    Considering he is still hurt, Id suspect he didnt pass the test.

    If he has to ice his knee already I assume he can not train and get in shape like he needs to be.

    like scott said, is he ever going to get healthy?


  • July 31, 2009  - True Red & Gold says:

    Bre failed the test as well.

    Haley also failed the test as a precursor to his coaching stint with the Chiefs.

    My “member” fails to arouse anyone, male, female or beast.

    The report said Dorsey had ice on his shin not his knee. Sounds more like a shin splint to me. Not a good sign if all the running they did was for the test. Shin splints usually come after a lot of running.


  • July 31, 2009  - kansan_chief says:

    Why is it every site that has to deal with the Chiefs they have 1-2 DA’s that have to be DA’s!

    I wonder if they are all the same * Hermstheman, True Red & Gold and RIN *

    ARE THEY ALL THE SAME or just DA’s that act the same?

    I can vouch for that.

    Well now I’m jealous.


  • July 31, 2009  - anonymous says:

    Can I get a witness or an amen?


  • July 31, 2009  - Josh says:

    kansan_chief,

    Yeah, we’re pretty sure it’s the same guy.


  • July 31, 2009  - Josh says:

    Scott


  • July 31, 2009  - Josh says:

    or Rin. :) 100% sure it’s not Scott.


  • July 31, 2009  - Josh says:

    or me :-) 100% sure it’s not JohnNdallas but it may be alex k.

    It is a shame one of the best sites to get Chiefs info, also has to have the worst comment section.


  • July 31, 2009  - Chiefs#1 says:

    Oh, I also love sex with chickens.


  • July 31, 2009  - True Red & Gold says:

    I like how Haley handles himself so far in press conferences. I will lose respect for him if he continues to outright lie. In his press conference Friday he said that every position is wide open. We all know that is not true and an outright lie. Haley can’t treat his fans like they are stupid!


  • August 1, 2009  - Rin Tin Tin says:

    Perhaps :roll: can’t help it (cue that Obuma clown – ‘acting stupidly’ -) because… he’s not acting.

    Real Rin ® :cool: daddy-o

    Calm down cousin Scott. Yer gittin all worked up just like when Sarge used to hold you down in the foxhole back in Nam! Shoot! Nobody wants your old fat ass any more you old geezer!
