Here's the responses to your mailbox questions via Twitter (@lucmull95) and the Comments section...Had to save some questions cause they're getting good and I ran long on a couple of these.
Hope this helps folks!
How do you see the Canadian Dline Battle, and the Canadians that are rotating in at camp? And what do you think happened to Brandon Tennant?
What's the mentality of a Veteran during CFL camp if he knows he's on the bubble?
• People who have heard me speak on this will think I sound like a broken record, but this is reality...The most important thing for a vet, or anyone that thinks they're on "the bubble" during camp is to NOT think about it. As a pro one has to control the things that they are in control of. There's nothing one can do about the competition brought into camp, what the coaches may think of you or how that competition is playing during practice. There's nothing that one can do about the reps the coaches give them, or where one is placed on the depth chart. The only thing that a player can control is their own performance and the things they can do to make the team. If a player is in practice telling himself, "So-and-so is doing this" or, "man so-and-so made a great catch there, I need to do something now" then that player isn't focused on the things that they control, like play call and the guy or task in front of them. I used to hear guys, especially during exhibition season, complain about not getting a shot, or only getting 3 plays to prove themselves. I used to say to myself, "well that's 3 golden bars of opportunity and you could make those the best 3 plays EVER in your entire life!!! You can't go out with a defeated or hurried attitude.
I didn't always think like this and it hurt my performance. I was fortunate enough to sit down with a coach who gave me some mental material and a real different look at the way I thought. It's not something that everyone inherently had in them. But it can be learned...Control what you control!!!
How’s Jorgen Hus look snapping?
