    I'm just trying to see where we as fans rank its importance compared to coaches...
    I think we tend to pay a lot of attention to it because there's nothing else being reported then injuries.

    Not speaking for the coaches here, but for me I pay little attention to it at this point of the year, especially with a veteran like Jones. It seems that this happens every year to at least one player.

    Re: Training Camp 2013 Thread

    The thing about the conditioning test that many don't get is that plenty of guys will fail it not due to poor conditioning, but rather because they pace themselves poorly in the beginning and then rather than risk injury by gutting it out, will simply wait to do it later.

    Does anyone who's looked at Jones lately really want to try and tell me he's not in phenomenal shape? Dude is cut with barely any body fat. He'll take it again at the first available chance and breeze through it.

    Fair enough. And every year I'm mad at that 1 or 2 players. Lol.

    Time context.

    We didn't know why he was placed on the NFI when that was speculated. Now we know.

    I'm not concerned....wasn't it Ngata last year who tweaked something when attempting to take his test and passed it 2nd try?

    I'm betting he just stumbled during it and will be off by tomorrow.

    Here's a segment w/ Gerry Sandusky doing the conditioning test a few years back:

    Basically, you have to be in pretty darn good cardio shape, otherwise you pass or fail at the coaches' discretion (There's no way some of the bigger guys on the squad ever make it thru all 6 runs).

    Nothing to see here, unless he fails on his 2nd try. Then it could be an issue, or Harbaugh could just be trying to make a point. But I doubt it comes to that.

    He probably stopped in the middle of it and did one of those TD dances of his. Figured he would get one last one in, since Thompson's going to be the one in the endzone this year.

    Your hatred of Jones and love of Randy Moss are two things that I don't think anyone on this board understands.

    I'm not concerned about Jones' health. It's his head, his focus and his motivation that concern me.
    He's been down the "maybe he doesn't take football seriously" road before at HOU.
    I hope that this is just an unrelated occurrence and not a precursor.

    I'm gonna leave it alone as is.
    Back to the AFCCG we go. So get ready!
