    KRL Camp Notes (7/28/13)

    General Notes

    - Practice was re-scheduled because of the rain this morning and
    it started at 3:30 pm. Day totally changed it was sunny & humid

    - Players were in full pads for the first time

    - Practice ran 1 hour and 20 minutes but it was all offense vs.
    defense drills

    - Practice was held in Cortland's football stadium which seats about
    7 - 10,000. The field appears to be turf not grass about 500 people
    showed up. Being in there was like "practice heaven" because you
    can sit on the 50 yard line as high as you want to see all the action

    - Ivory was padded up but didn't get any reps. Edwards and Winslow
    were held out. There was a lot of slipping early on

    - One of the big differences in practice this year is it feels like
    the coordinators are playing "chess" against each other during the 11
    on 11 periods. In years past particularly for the offense it felt
    like the OC would stick to a "script" on what he would want to work
    on making it easier for the defense to diagnose and stop it. Now
    it feels like Mornhinweg and Rex are just "throwing calls" at each
    other seeing if the other can stop it


    Player Notes

    - As the drills started Wilkerson called the defense together and
    said "Let's prove who the toughest M***f*** are". And the defense
    had an excellent day shutting down the run. Very physical you
    could hear the pads popping

    - Even though the defense was excellent against the run the offense
    still was productive through the air. Another encouraging practice

    -Both QB's played well but Smith was better today. Smith finally ran
    with the #1's and he showed up. During his 7 on 7 reps he showed the
    ability to "throw WR's open" with nice completions to Stephen Hill &
    Jeff Cumberland. During his 11 on 11 reps he had the play of the day
    with a 35+ yd sideline completion to Hill. He also showed nice poise
    against the blitz to find an open man. Finally he also hit Kerley
    with a sweet back shoulder throw which had Cro spinning around. In
    Sanchez reps he made no mistakes and his best throws were to Hill
    during WR vs. CB drills for a 30+ yd TD. And he also showed that
    he could "throw WR's open" by hitting Kerley during 7 on 7

    - The best WR on the field today was Hill. He's not allowing
    himself to get "punked" at the line of scrimmage and so far he's
    catching everything

    - The key defenders in shutting down the run today were Wilkerson,
    Richardson, Ellis & Coples

    - Chad Spann deserves another "shout out" he was the only RB that
    was able to get any yards running the ball. He's short and stocky
    I think he gets lost behind the line and the defense can't find him

    - Matt Simms seems to be the #3 QB (about time)

    - During 1 on 1 DL vs. Oline drills our rookies displayed their
    skills:
    * Richardson beat Peterman with speed and power
    * Winters beat Garay showing very "heavy hands" during one rep
    he put him on the ground
    * Aboushi showed nice feet in adjusting to the rush and a good
    punch
    * Campbell needs work on his feet but has good upper body strength
    to hold off the rush even though he was off balance

    - The kickers were both perfect today Folk 4/4 Cundiff 3/3


    Standouts For The Day

    - The run defense
    - Smith
    - Hill
    - Richardson
    - Ellis
    - Coples
    - Wilkerson
    - Spann


    Monday is my final day in Cortland unfortunately my hotel's check
    out time is 12 pm. So when practice is over I won't have access
    to the internet. I'll post my notes when I get back to NYC which
    should be around 5 pm hopefully there's no traffic

    great stuff KRL, thanks.

    Good to see Wilkerson is assuming the role of vocal leader on defense. Ultimately your most talented players must step up to lead, and Wilkerson fits that.

    Great report as always, KRL.

    Love what I'm hearing about Hill so far. Kid has boatloads of talent. Sky is the limit for him.

    KRL you're the man.

    It is very positive that Hill is catching everything. With Braylon, Gates, Kerley in the mix with Hill we can have a good core of WRs.

    richardson sounds like a beast. love it.

    KRL, you're the best beat reporter we've got. You're a fan and see things from the fan's perspective. You're not trying to escalate molehills into mountains. Great job.

    So psyched to hear Hill is doing well. The importance of a legit deep threat cannot be understated. It will bring a dimension to the offense that we haven't seen since Moss.

    Something must be done to extend KRL's stay, making him an honorary member of the JI staff, just to pay his hotel fund? Perhaps it's his employer that demans his exodus, if so, you need more paid vacation days!
