July 31, 2006 (Morning Session 9:00-10:30)
Hey guys... Just got back in from the short morning session. I was a bit off kilter as I forgot my mic and had to revert back to my old school recording equipment... This will be a super short Cliff Notes version as today is the dreaded "barely enough hours to get home and back in between sessions day. "
* Guys were in full pads as they have been each morning. No Tom again today, Tedy and Rache who missed yesterday were back.. I didn't see Matt Light or Jarvis Green this morning.
* Lonie is off PUP and was out on the field looking trim.
* Lost of running game work.... with Cassel at the helm.
* Maroney is the REAL Deal, really becoming a go-to guy in the team portion, up the middle and to the sidelines. He also received props and atta-boys from vets Larry Izzo and Monty Beisel after return work.
* Gramatica was on duty for much of the live portion... sending a sideline kickoff out of bounds and pulling a field goal wide right... (Mrs. B will be one nervous girl this fall... waiting to exhale only after hearing It's Goooooood because she'll be holding her breath the whole time...) :-(
* Catch of the Day: Cassel pass to a Caldwell diving across the middle under double coverage...
*Vrabel got a pick and took it to the house.
* Sealy was very vocal (as always) during morning tackle work with ST players.. specifically giving guys encouragement on following through on tackles... I heard TBC's name more than once; possibly the result of yesterday's episode of dogging it.. Don Davis stood out as being aggressive..
* O-Line signed today.. but lots of WR did as well. Also heading over there was Vrabel.
* There was a little dude around 3 years old sitting next to me with a red and blue mohawk!
* Mrs. B wishes that she remembered not only to bring her microphone but a notepad as well.... sorry guys!
