It’s been a few days, but my fever and body aches have officially subsided and the flu seems to be almost gone. I didn’t even know you could get the flu in the summer, but apparently that virus does not discriminate. With that being said, I thought I should give credit to a player who has taken plenty of heat on this site and many others over the past year or so.
According to his Twitter page (@MardyGilyard), Rams wide receiver Mardy Gilyard worked out with teammates at the recent workout session in Arizona. Now, I have been highly critical of Gilyard for his extremely subpar rookie season, and I was even more critical of him when he didn’t show at the workout session in St. Louis. It’s only fair then that I give him some credit for getting together with the team to prepare for the season. I still don’t think he stands a good chance to make the team this season, but at least he is putting forth the effort. Rookie receivers tend to struggle in the NFL anyway, so it might not have been all his fault.
