After getting the post together, I went and watched a YouTube video he put together on injuries in the NHL. It’s really an interesting watch and displays his data gathering/research skills and how he evaluates injuries. It also has geese shouting in the background.
All jokes aside, the 49ers needed to do something, what they had wasn’t working. Bringing both strength/conditioning together with the medical side should be great for everyone to communicate methods and status reports on rehab in a much more efficient manner. Peterson seems like a great person for it. It’s still early to see how this shapes up, but it looks like they are on their way.
Here’s some links:
