    Football players don't lift to increase their strength during the season.. no athlete in any sport does that besides power lifting. They lift to maintain their strength and prevent injury. If they were lifting to get stronger during the season they would get hurt a lot more than they already do. There is a point when you plateau, you don't just keep getting stronger. If that were the case guys could bench 1,000 pounds. It doesn't work like that. Genetics plays into your strength as well.

    lifting to maintain their strength during the season is different than lifting to get stronger in the off-season which cj said he wasnt doing...

    I wasn't talking about what CJ said. I was just talking about the comment that was made about increasing your bench press

    Zac Brown? Sorry buddy I'm not into white people music. And the only reason I know who the Zac Brown band is is through the Titans website when they were advertising for his show at LP Field.

    And what in the world does an NBA forward have to do with anything??

    And lastly, yes I am well aware that being a beast in the weight room means only so much, but it's more his work ethic or lack thereof that concerns me. What kind of great athlete takes months off from getting better???

    He didn't say weeks, he said f'cking months. I have no time for complacent players, we're not anywhere good enough for him to be hanging around waiting for the season.

    Please do tell me what white people music consists of? Why do you categorize or stereotype everything? Do you think it makes you a cool white kid to puff on L's and drop you're R's.

    Yes it only means so much so why are you so hung on on some GD weight room numbers? A lot of great athletes get by on natural ability. CJ still works out on his own its not like he sits on his couch all offseason and uses training camp to get into shape. You might use that argument one time but he comes in to TC in great shape. He takes a beating during the year I'd make it necessary he lets his body rest and heal I'm sure he doesn't give up exercise for lent.

    We got bigger problems that CJ my man it is obvious you're bias towards him will not let you have an anything less than an objective conversation about him so carry on.

    White people music is country and whatever Briney Spears sings. And no our problems are CJ, he picks and chooses when he plays hard, and now we learn he doesn't hardily do jack in the off season.

    We need to stop drafting people like this. We need guys who want to work to get to where theyre not watching the playoffs from home every year.

    and puffs on L's? Son I am an executive to a multi million dollar company. Worst thing I do is drink some beer or something. And if you wanna believe I hate him for being black, then shame on you, that'd make you one ignorant football fan.

    giving your body time to heal is like 2 weeks tops...but sitting around doing nothing in the off season, after the season your team just had, when your supposed to be the playmaker for your team...do i really need to say more??

    You may have to. This noob comes around thinking all criticisms of CJ are race driven. This guy just doesn't know.
