    Why do we constantly have RBs come up with "turf toe type issues", as Fisher put it????

    Do we have a shoe problem, taping the shoes too tight, our field.....what the heck is the deal!!!!???

    Personally, I blame it on Schwartz.

    We've had footwear issues for 6 years. titans looked in to it 3 years ago- changing shoes, styles etc and I think our strength and conditioning coach said we're OK with what we've got.

    I'd be surprised if they're not using the same kind of shoes as the majority of NFL teams. A players choice of shoes is after all individual.

    This issue came up when we had Kearse, Troupe with broken 5th MTP's, several high ankle sprains (woolfolk some others), EG's toe, brown's ankle. It is an individual choice but the training staff needs to be sufficiently in the know to make good recs and advice for the players.

    I was just glad we looked into it.

    There was a comment that R. Smith looked to be in better shape when he strolled back into BSP than when he played here. I know he pulled a hammy in the game but what did the Texans do to get him in better shape than when he played here

    He played DE in their 3-4 system so they probably asked him to drop a few pounds compared to our DT's ideal weight.
