    This isn't some rookie who doesn't know the system. He's a former pro who is working on, amongst many other things, impressing other teams, possibly the Ravens. The coach then says publicly that he's "disappointed".

    I've seen enough. When there's a conflict with what someone says with the things they actually do, you go with their actions 100% of the time. He has *never* shown he's serious about playing in the pros. Never.

My small 5'9" 165lb self deadlifted over 400 and squatted over 300 which was a lot more than some of the much bigger guys in my gym.

    To me Gino just lacked the strength and technique to get it done at Center.
    I agree, Gino problem wasn't his size but his strength. It is a difference. I am sure that is what ozzie meant when he said bigger.

    This.

    There's no drama in this, gentlemen.

    He either makes the team or (like thousands of other "talented" guys before him) gets cut.

    I'm happy he's back in the fold. We now five guys in camp who can play ILB (D-Smith, A-Brown, Bynes, McClellan, and McClain). Frankly, although I don't think he's an awful player, I wasn't terribly thrilled with the idea of Bynes having to start if Smith or Brown went down, mainly because his pass coverage is so poor. How does McClain rate in pass coverage?

    Haven't quite a few others failed this initial conditioning test and later passed? Jacoby Jones, Terrance Cody, Bryant McKinne, Courtney Upshaw? Not necessarily the crew you want to be associated with, but it certainly doesn't preclude you from ultimately making the Ravens team.

    Seems like it's often used as a motivaitonal tool, and a true gauge of being in ELITE shape.

    When guys like kruger, pierce etc all thought it was tough, you know it's not for the feint of heart:

    None of those players (possibly McKinney) didn't have the scrutiny combined with the history that McClain has.

    McClain's situation is light years apart from those players.
