August 16, 2006 (Morning Session 8:45-10:45)
This was the final morning practice of this year's training camp and it was nice and sunny and getting hotter! (Yes... Mrs. B likes HHH!) I'll be squeezing in some much needed Real Life stuff between sessions so here are the minimal tidbits for today:
* Practice took place in full pads and many of the vets weren't on the field today... No Brady, Brown, Seymour, Harrison, Miller, or Gramatica in addition to the usual MIAs.
* Scout work for Arizona continued today with emphasis on the running game once again.
* Catch of the Day: While working on scout, Willie Andrews (38) had a nice grab of a Cassel bomb close to the opposite endzone.
* Johnathan Sullivan took a lap as well as Eddie Freeman and then the entire Defense a bit later.
* Vrabel has clearly emerged as a major leader on the Defense....
* Gostkowski missed a couple of field goals pulling them far right (one looked like it was even outside of the net) but I couldn't judge the distance based on where I was sitting.
* Patrick Cobbs (41) is one to watch :-)
* Eugene Wilson ran some gassers on his own during downtimes.
* Linebackers signed after practice as well as Lonie, Cassel, Maroney.
* I made friends with a nice family today who kept me company on the hill :-)
I'll be back tonight for the final Evening Session and then again tomorrow for the last session of camp!
