Schlereth on Barber and Coughlin

Former All-Pro Offensive Lineman Mark Schlereth weighed in on the Barber-Coughlin remarks… he said that Mike Shanahan added 4-5 years to his career because as a coach Shanahan managed his veterans and understood the grind. It is a 12-month per year career and Schlereth says that veterans who have delivered results for many seasons need to get less reps in practice as the season winds down. Veterans loses their legs. Even the younger players lose their legs. Think about all those games down the stretch where the Giants scored first and then disappeared. Don’t think for a second that these guys were not acting out or that their bodies were simply not ready to go for 60 minutes. Coughlin is a grinder, period. AND HE HAS NOT FIGURED IT OUT.
