As long as he's not partying during the season, drinking and driving, or doing something else illegal he can do whatever he wants.

edit - maybe dancing is part of his workout routine

Just cause some one parties doesn't mean they don't work hard. It's also the off season, are these people suppose to make football their entire life? If someone works at McDonald's do you think they practice grilling at home? Even the great Ray Lewis takes time off... I think. But another reason Twitter is a bad idea.

Working out at 1 PM is the same as working out at 8 AM. What else does he have to do during the day?

The answer is clear: he's a machine, jerk.

I wouldn't worry too much about McKinnie partying. At least he isn't raping any girls or anything.

Doesn't really bother me. People act like just because they play football that they can't go out and party. This guy is a natural talent and sometimes that overlaps anything else. I read somewhere, that when Ogden played that he would watch 45 minutes of tape a week and thats it. Natural ability allows a person to get away with a lot. He also plays a position where he needs to stay a consistent weight and not get hurt, and he will have another solid season. He has been in the NFL for years, and he knows his body better than any of us.

McKinney is on the back half of his career and at this point he is what he is. No one is going to change him. And for that we will get our moneys worth, but he will never be the elite player he was.

So, since when does partying automatically mean that he isn't working hard in the off-season? I really don't understand that one. And, I guess you didn't hear that when McKinnie met with Harbs, Harbs was very pleased with McKinnie's progress and said he was in good shape.

I think it is foolish to be doing a lot of partying, especially with the potential mistakes and idiotic decisions alcohol bring on. That being said, its his life, and as long as he produces on the field, who am i to judge?

i see nothing wrong with this at all. Hes a grow man and can do what he wants, at the end of the day its his life and needs to do what makes him happy. As a fan i just hope he knows how to moderate it, another reason why i hate social networking sites.....

I think being upset McKinnie is partying is akin to being upset over Flacco skateboarding.

lol. Yeah, but wasn't he LEARNING to skateboard during our bye week in the playoffs? Not really smart IMO.

Man, you guys are animals. The topic starter asked a simple, logical question and he's met with some big ol' meanies. I think it's a pretty legit question when asked about a guy who came into last season with some question marks as far as work ethic and football shape goes and Minnesotans saying, 'Haha, good luck with that guy..he'll work for you when he wants and coast the rest of the time,'. I didn't see it as a slight on McKinnie himself or partying. We all loves to party! Meh. As y'all were.

Why is there always an assumption that somebody out partying is getting drunk?! There's a possibility that he's hosting or attending these nights out but staying teetotal or drinking very little.

Some people don't need as much sleep as others or maybe be just works out middle of the day. By the way, was never tying to attack you just answer so I apologize if it came off that way. I see people trying to take shots when you asked a simple question, tough crowd.

[i]“He had done a good job, he’d been working in the offseason, he’s training,” Harbaugh said. “He’s in the same shape he was in when he left. We want to improve that from now until the start of next season.”[/i] - [url="http://blogs.baltimoreravens.com/2012/03/31/ravens-monitoring-mckinnies-weight/"]LINK[/url]

He's doing some training between all the partying.

One thing is for certain. McKinnie is so strong right now that the Steelers are worried about how to get around him next year.
