I like this. I think it will really help.

They should be faster, stronger and have less physical weaknesses.




“Recovery, to me, is whether they can practice tomorrow at as high a level as they did today,” Saunders said. “Can they perform in Week 16 like they did in Week 1? We’re trying to put that whole system in place so we can have a successful year.”

I like that they're switching back to natural grass @ M&T. Something needed to be changed with the injury problems.

then I hope they do away with anyone using the field besides the Ravens, those Thanksgiving day high school games can tear that field up,
