Okay, so, with the penalties, the opneing drive was 16 plays. That's a long drive, but should he be coming out on play 12ish because he's gassed? I know there are still 3 weeks for him to get in shape, is that enough? Because the Titans might have three of those kind of drives in the first half, and if he needs to come out...

IMO, Hamp's play has declined slightly but perciptibly each year over the last 3-4 due to conditioning.  He should still play well for most of the regular season, but it is a concern.  Smart not to extend him.  In fact, with the Pats not extending Wilfork, I'm wondering if we couldn't spend the coin and get a younger 3-4 NT next year?

My opinion on Hampton's shape is that it is very, very round.

BV could work him into shape.

I still think Hampton has a very real chance of being the first Steeler with a 3-digit jersey number.

I think what Hampton is missing is the fact that as a player gets older...especially a large glob of goo such as Hampton...they must be in better shape come training time.
