    May be he just needed more of a drill master coach instead of a cerebral
    one like Callahan.

    From the first couple of practices I believe our offense will have three main
    components

    1. Power running
    2. Screen passes
    3. Vertical routes

    There will be no more 4 yard slants and hope the WR can break it for a
    first down
    I hope this part is only half true.

    There's nothing wrong with a 4 yard slant on 2nd and 9. It's when those plays are called on 3rd and long that drives everyone crazy.

    True, but I think that was implied with "and hope he can break it for a first down" . . .

    Hopefully these types of drills will help us slow down Gronkowski/Hernandez and all the other athletic TE's we'll face this season. That's been the biggest weakness for the defense.

    - One four man nickel look had Maybin, Wilkerson, Coples & Pace on the front line
    That's going to be awesome to see on Sundays Want to see our defensive linemen be able to get pressure when we're not blitzing.

    if we can get pressure with just 4, and then you have revis shutting down the #1 receiver, this defense will be great

    This is totally my opinion but from watching Otah move I'll be shocked if he
    doesn't pass his physical. He has no limp, wrap or brace on his knee and he
    was doing his conditioning run with no problem. But I'm no doctor

    - Landry was dressed but was held out of practice today

    - Coach Dunbar was cross-teaching the LB's on how to improve their pass
    rush moves

    - Coach DeGuglielmo (OLine) went "old school" today making the OLine push
    him on the blocking sled 40 yards downfield during warmups

    - To keep the offense moving at a fast tempo I noticed Sparano has them on
    a 25 second clock instead of a 40 second one

    - Something new that I've noticed the defense is now running more
    "coordinated coverage" drills. Instead of the LB's and DB's working on
    coverage by themselves now everyone (DL, LB & DB) works on pass
    coverage as a unit

    - Westhoff was installing his fake punt package with Tebow today (draws,
    jump passes)

    - A lot of mixing and matching in the personnel groupings today. Also a lot
    of reps for the #2's and #3's

    - One four man nickel look had Maybin, Wilkerson, Coples & Pace on the front
    line


    Player Notes

    - Maybin had a great day today. Constantly in the backfield for "sacks" or
    "tackles for loss"

    - The two drafted safeties (Bush & Allen) flashed today. Bush showed good
    range covering from the middle of the field to the sideline. And Allen
    showed good anticipation with two INT's

    - Cromartie and Wilson had a good days in coverage

    - Sapp flashed today with a "pressure" and "tackle for loss" he also showed
    excellent closing speed tackling Powell on the sideline

    - I saw why Rex mentioned Schlauderaff yesterday. As a center he's
    showing an excellent ability to "stone" defenders and even when he gets
    beaten he's able to redirect and maintain his block

    - Kroul was impressive in 1 on 1 drills against the DLine

    - Wilkerson, Coples and Ellis were impressive in 1 on 1 drills against the
    OLine

    - You saw the inconsistency of Hunter today. In one rep against Pace he
    ducks his head and Pace flys by him. Then DeGuglielmo makes him take his
    rep again and you see his talent when he stones Pace

    - The star RB today was Powell. A 40 yard off tackle "TD" run and he also
    showed the willingness to run between the tackles

    - McKnight also showed toughness staying between the tackles and running
    hard

    - Ray Webber a WR also flashed today he had a nice one handed TD grab
    (30 yds) from McElroy
    very nice job KRL. MUCH MUCH appreciated. Thank you.

    As always, great job KRL & much appreciated.

    What I find most rewarding is how it seems that Powell is holding his own, if not exceeding expectations, thus far when given the opportunity. There was A LOT of homer bashing on Bilal based on the snapshot of what we saw last year, and it was bad, but he didn't merit it to the degree some posters whined about him.

    He has low mileage and maybe now is better adjusted to the NFL to hopefully materially contribute this year in some form (whether ST, 3rd down back, etc.).

    With a thicker McKnight, a 250lb Goalline Southpaw Ox, Greene in a contract year, a 240 lb rookie RB, and John Conner on the roster bubble, throwing in an improving Bilal Powell can only make for a REALLY great RB committee for a G&P offense. The key........How does the OLine do this year, further regression or much improvement?

    Haven't heard anything about him.

    Wow, boy do I hope that is true. Will wonders ever cease, a coach making a unit around the talents/shortcomings of his personnel.

    Provided you have the right personnel. So far, Sanchez et al., haven't demonstrated an affinity for that particular route.

    Notebook: Packers add 2.5-second passing clock to practice

    The Packers are introducing a new gadget in training camp, a 2.5-second timer on the sidelines that alerts players on passing plays.

    The clock, which is used in 7-on-7 and team drills, is set at 2.5 seconds and starts when the ball is snapped. When it hits zero, a faint siren sounds and colored lights flash.

    Coach Mike McCarthy said most pass plays are designed for the quarterback to throw within 2.4 or 2.5 seconds, and that the device is useful for both sides of the ball.

    “For the offense and the protection unit, to have a clear indication when you’re potentially transitioning into a scrambling phase,” McCarthy said. “It’s something we always try to emphasize in practice in as many different ways as possible. And on the other side of the ball, it’s a time clock for the pass rush and the pressure unit.”

    The timer probably is most useful in 7-on-7 drills, where there’s no pass rush. When the siren and lights go on, the quarterback knows to break the pocket because he probably would have to scramble if linemen were on the field.

    “Mike (McCarthy) always says listen to your feet,” backup quarterback Graham Harrell said. “Once you start hitching and your feet are out of whack, that’s kind of a time clock, too. Quarterbacks naturally develop a time clock, but to have that (siren) audible is good, too.”

    Several other players said they didn’t notice the system while playing. The siren was barely audible even from the opposite sideline, so many players downfield can’t hear it, and they all have built-in cues that the 2.5 seconds have passed.

    “I didn’t notice it until I went to the sidelines,” cornerback Tramon Williams said. “They told us it would be out there, but we don’t pay attention to it.

    If you take away the initial route, then you know 3 seconds is up, so you know it’s going to be a scramble from that point, you just have to plaster your man, stick with him.”
