To Those Who Are Attending Training Camp


Recommended Posts

One day the youngins' gotta take a road trip!! haha

I actually went last season to the Friday Night Lights game and I actually got the full write up on it. It's somewhere buried waaaayyyy deep in my thread archives.

But really if you'd be interested say next season to meet up an watch the Falcons ball I'd be more than happy to! Nothing beats Falcons Football surrounded by the Falcons Faithful!

I went to Friday Night Lights i think it was the first year they did it? or first i heard of it back when they came to Cohulla Creek my freshman year i think it was, pretty fun. All the football players for my school were there and they didn't know chit about football (our team sucks, our defensive scheme is a 3-5-5? never heard of that) the team was trying to act like they knew the Falcons and Titans but it was clear to everyone that they were lost

I will admit something:

It is very hard to keep up with more than a handful of players. Especially if they are on the other side of the field.

It's a lot going on. So, take most of what you hear with a grain of salt. Some people see things differently. For instance, Trufant's interception yesterday really wasn't much of a play. It doesn't happen on Sunday in a real game. Matt had nowhere to go with the ball so he just kind of threw it. It was good coverage, but without seeing the play, our imaginations run a little wild.

I heard Trufant jumped off Roddy's back and caught it mid back flip so shut up

I want to know what Ricardo Allen is doing...

I, for one, was very skeptical when I heard Ricardo had not only been moved to FS but was the frontrunner for the starting position.

After all, he wasn't even on the 53-man roster last year.. aaaannnnd he did seem a little fruity on Hard Knocks making his girlfriend go first on the zipline because he was scarred. smh

BUT from what I saw Saturday, he looked good back there, and never appeared out of position. He was also pretty vocal as the defense was adapting in coverage.

One peculiar thing though, in the 11-on-11 drills, when the 1's would come off the field, Ricardo would go to the sideline and voluntarily start doing push-ups while he waited to get back on the field. (not sure if intense work ethic or just a spaz) shrug.001.gif

This is very true. Some groups practice on the far field where you can't really see them. You kind of just have to "report" on what you see in front of you. I'll be there Tuesday and I always enjoy doing a write up for you guys.

I thought I had read it was something to do with mistakes he makes

1) this shows the last coaching staff had no idea what they were doing

2) zip lines and football are 2 different things?

3) because push ups for an NFL player are a bad thing? Email him and twll him to eat donuts instead

I agree with Vel. This coaching staff has so much going on and at such a quick pace, its hard to tell a lot.

Here is what I noticed when I was at camp this weekend regarding your requested players.

Ish was in A LOT. Willie Mo wa on a snap count. I dont know if he is being brought back slowly or what, but Willie was getting about 2 reps a series and then it was all ISH and Allen. Moore also got a lot of individual coaching from DBs coach and also Raheem.

Bartu was clearly, clearly on 3rd string defense. As was Moponga. Everyone else was rotated in and out with starters and second teamers except these 2 guys.

WAY too early to read anything into it. But the Bartu thing really shocked me. He was running with pure camp body guys on defense and that is a long way to fall. From starter to bubble guy in 1 offseason.

If you could please keep an eye on the following players cause I've heard 0% about them so far and I'm not fortunate enough to attend this season....

Maliciah Goodman
Stansley Maponga
Joplo Bartu
Kemal Ishmael
Ra'Shede Hageman

Could someone also keep an eye out for this?
