OFFICIAL TRAINING CAMP OBSERVATION THREAD

19 posts in this topic

As much waiting as we did for TC to get here it seems like the board has come to a screeching halt with everybody waiting for either atljbo or jaymadd to bring information. Greg M has been giving great pictures but it seems like either nothing special is happening at TC or nobody is going...

Have at it!

Hey, Mr. Moderator, thanks for the pinned threads. Could you put the day and date in the main title? It'd make it a whole lot easier to find a particular thread.

Thanks

Well since there's not an afternoon pin here's my plethora of observations and comments. It was good to see Tandy and her husband again yesterday AM. Much like today Owens and Franks both play tight in Go routes tipping passes but get juked time to time but both have good recovery speed. One funny observation yesterday was in passing drills WR's were shadowing other WR's, Roddy was playing CB against Jenkins and it was as if he knew Jenkins rounds off his route and knew precisely when to cut in for the interception but dropped it. Spoon was flying around yesterday. Dunta played the ball pretty well but did have some moments to where he got beat slightly (good ball placement) in some crossing routes.

I was standing next to Stats most of the afternoon practice today. Wolfe is still a physical player. Grimes still makes very athletic plays in the short to intermediate routes but got beat a couple of times in the deep fade routes. DeCoud played Gonzo tight and physical a few times, I think to the point of causing Gonzo to hear footsteps on a perfectly placed ball with the headhunter breathing down his neck. Sorry Chevous Jackson but I don't think you are going to pick things up it seems. Meier seems to have potential. Bergeron made some nice catches. Jenkins drops a couple of passes trying to arm catch as usual but made some nice fake steps to fool Franks. Turner definitely has that speed to get around the ends. You know that thing Dunn lost in his latter years that he made his bones from.

On a personal note it was cool when the QB's were running their drills across the width of the field Matt Ryan threw a pass right between me and this other guy. I let him catch it since I had a roster, fan, and a water bottle in my hand. I just thought it was cool on Ryan's part to interact with the fans like that during practice whereas most don't do that until afterwards.

:lol: I actually had my head halfway turned when he did that (I was on the other side of Phatty) and it nearly made me jump. As jealous as I am, I'm glad it didn't go to me cause I probally would have dropped it and it would have haunted me forever looking bad in front of Matty Ice.
