    Monday's workout lasted for close to two hours. Wedged in between two practice fields were giant speakers, blasting out a playlist that was reported on through the noon hour as if it contained the contents of the Watergate tapes. After warm-ups and stretching, the session was broken into 20 periods, with the number and type of each period announced by a voice that sounded like Max Headroom from the New Coke commercials of the 1980s.

    Seventeen of these were what Kelly calls "tempo periods." They looked like standard individual drills, team exercises, 7-on-7s and special teams work, only with the coaches' thumbs securely jammed on the fast-forward button. During team and skeleton work, coaches dotted the sideline, signaling in formations, personnel groups, alignments and assignments.

    During some of the work, the second group would replace the first group the nanosecond the ball was whistled dead. Other times, one group would be called on to run plays consecutively without stopping.

    For the other three periods of the 10:30 a.m. practice (running from 11:23 to 11:27 a.m., 11:56 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 12:11 to 12:15 p.m.), the music was shut off and teaching sessions were conducted. And yes, even those moved at a fast pace.

    The overarching idea is to condition the guys, both mentally and physically.

    Time to see what that angry Eagles fan on youtube has to say. Won't link it. He has a potty mouth.
