ANYWAY! Lets get down to business.
Quarterbacks - Nothing really impressive from any of them. Brady made some nice high arching passes and some good accurate throws but the same could be said for any QB with no defense out there.
Brady of course looks phenomenal. Also he is very vocal this early in camp yelling out "hurry up" "lets go" and just plain out screaming alot.
I dont find much appealing about Walter Hoyer or O'Connell for the matter. Just looked average practice going through the motions type of deal.
Running backs - Look maybe its just me but Maroney and Morris took a majority of the "starting snaps" from TB while Fred Taylor and Lawfirm took other reps from the backup.
Maroney looks to just run straight into the huddle now and seems to be copying more of Morris and Taylor model. Just take the ball into the whole and move around after you break through. Maroney looks good now but when doesnt he in camp? I still believe a 3 headed backfield is used.
WR - Moss and Welker look to be hitting their strides already and the 4 man shotgun Had Galloway wide left Moss wide right. Welker short right and Edelmen short left.
Ive got to tell you Edelmen is impressive to watch the guy creates room catches the ball and seems to be shifty enough to gain extra yards, hes also shadowing Welker every where he goes. On a disappointing note i do not feel comfortable with Galloway yet nor do i feel comfortable with Greg Lewis at all. Greg Lewis was cheered for 3 of his catches but the fans dont pay attention to small details. All 3 catches were out of bounds catches. It was actually pretty crappy that he couldnt realize where he was on the field when making those plays. No wonder when Herena Jones let off on his pursuit the guy was 2 yards out when he made contact with the ball. Poor vision on his part he should know alot better.
OL: Sea Bass is a large powerful man. If this guy can get some technique down and learn some leverage he looks pretty enormous. But pardon the pun with great size comes great responsibilty. He still looks OVERLY RAW. The power and size is there but the work into it is not. Side Note Matt Light looks to be in great shape.
DL: Not many guys out there not many big names. Spent lots of time being pushed around and being yelled at for being out of place. Bleh performance lots of improvement to be had
LB: My god i have fallen in love with what looks like our two starting inside LB's Jerod Mayo and Gary Guyton look absolutely phenomenal. Great vision, good size, shed blocks overly well. Saw gaps, filled gaps. Guyton has definitely put on some great weight and it has made him a more complete package. he still also commands very good speed. He is reminding me of a very good young version of Roman Phifer. Pierre Woods looks to be our starting OLB opposite Thomas. But i think he may be injured he came up limping after quite a few plays and looked like he could only walk through plays. Scary. In positive news Paris Lennon looks to be a great backup! Several coaches were praising him for his plays he was making and he looked to be holding his own!
DB: Not much positive news here. Well not much of any news.Terrence Wheatley should be nicknamed Stumbelina because every time he tried to make up ground he stumbles. Moss doped him quite a few times. Honarable mention for #27 Herena Daze Jones, batted away quite a few balls and made some good plays overall. Chung was mostly regulated to backup and st duty.
Some funny stuff regarding the boss.
Seemed quite displeased with his DL performance and backup defense. Made several stop plays to go out and re tell the plays and what was supposed to look like. Even said "Stop asking questions and just make the plays"
Pulled Adalius Thomas aside made a few pointers to him then made him take a lap.
"Hurry it up!!! 15 seconds!"
"Get to the 5, 2 minutes"
"stop do it again" (talking to DL)
"offense take a lap" this was confusing because the offense had scored the TD i think it was because Moss punted the ball into the fans after he scored it.
Any thoughts or questions are welcomed!!!
After POST EDIT!!!
Extra stuff i was reminded of by BOR:
Scary moment when 62 Titus Adams tackled Fred Taylor in the knees causing BB to run over and ask "what are you doing? lets keep it to 2 hand down"
I've heard a bunch of negative reports on Paris Lennon in camp. It's nice to hear somebody actually likes what they see in him. Now, let's hope you are right.
