Kirk Muller Prepared For Two Types Of Camps

from Peter Koutroumpis of the Raleigh Sports Examiner, 

Regardless of what will transpire in the coming weeks and months, the enthusiasm for this coming season for Muller is high, and he is ready to prepare the team according to the situation presented to him and players.

“I’m excited because of the changes (in personnel),” Muller said.

“If we had a regular camp, we want to experiment to see some chemistry develop, work on some special teams and all that area. If we get into less exhibition games, we get into a shortened schedule, then we’re going to have to invite less bodies.”

Should a shortened season take place, Muller and his staff would lose the opportunity to take as much time to evaluate individual conditioning and tactical development and jump right into team strategy and play.

Such a situation may deny some players hoping to fight for a spot on the roster the opportunity to do so during training camp

“You cut down the numbers that are going to be at camp and then you get to more of the x’s and o’s of it rather than spending some time using the ‘skating legs’ and getting them into a groove – we’ve got to get right into the technical and systematic part of it; so you’ve gotta’ cut right down a little quicker.’
