Jack's Smack: All we care about is making sure there will be football this fall

It was good to see Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel take it upon himself to arrange for most of the players to show up this week for three days of practice at Bishop Miege High School.

I don't know how much they got accomplished, but it beat the heck out of pumping iron, and doing bench presses for the past several months.

You can only run so many miles every day to stay in shape.

Two players, Branden Albert and Tamba Hali were AWOL at Thursday's wrap up session.

Other than that, about 45 guys made it to town for the workouts.

While most, tried to avoid contact, it was good for the players to be involved in 7 on 7 drills and try to simulate what they would do, during off-season mini-camps.

It was our first opportunity to hear from the players since the lockout began.

Jon McGraw said he felt the media was biased in its reporting, but for the life of me, I haven't seen that, to be the case.

From what I can gather, most in the media and the fans could care less about either side.

All we care about, is making sure, there will be football this fall.

Players seem to be encouraged, that progress is being made in the talks.

Training camps are still five weeks away.

Let's face it. Let's be honest.

If, push comes to shove, these teams could get ready to play in three weeks.

They've got almost three months until the regular season opener.

They talk about running out of time, to get a deal done. That's a bunch of hogwash.

This thing will be settled, when the players cave, and make concessions.

And they will before their first paychecks are due in September.

That's Jack's Smack.
