NFL Nixes Bradford, McDaniels Meetings

From SI.com’s Peter King:

The Rams hoped to have new offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels sit down in a classroom often in February to discuss the tweaks he plans to make in the offense after the departure of 2010 offensive boss Pat Shurmur to the Browns. No dice. The league told the Rams they couldn’t do anything they wouldn’t do under normal circumstances, and ruled that normal circumstances would have coaches and players not meeting ’til at least March.

First of all, this is bull.  Who says the Rams would not have had Bradford and McDaniels meeting throughout February to work on the playbook under normal circumstances.  So, until there is a new CBA, McDaniels cannot share his playbook with the players on his offense according to the NFL.

This is the NFL at its heavy-handed worst.  They have made up an excuse to prevent contact between players and coaches.  Sam Bradford was given tape and the Rams coaches worked with him last year over the phone before training camp.  How does the NFL know what normal is when the Rams bring in a new offensive coordinator and have a quarterback coming off a rookie season?

This is stupid, petty and ridiculous by the NFL and sadly it is not the only instance of that during this ridiculous labor dispute.
