    Tuesday Afternoon Practice (8/2/05)

    There's a lot of stuff to post so give me about 15 mins. to type it all
    up:

    - Main practice took place on the short field (90 yds). For those of
    you who go to practice the main action always takes place where the
    cameras are set up

    - Herm had them in pads & shorts

    - NFL Network was there interviewing Herm & Donnie. I even saw Woody
    Johnson, why can't these rich guys dress normally? He looked like he
    was ready to go yachting

    - Nugent & Graham are always together. Why are Knorr & Beitia even
    around?

    - Nugent didn't kick FG's today. He was throwing the ball with some ball
    boys before practice and he throws a very good spiral. At least 50 yds
    in the air. Wouldn't be surprised if Westhoff runs some fake FG's with
    him this year

    - There were two new DB's that were signed #37 Williams and #39 Haw

    - Graham was fooling around before practice showing how many ways
    he can kick the ball. End over end, "helicopter left" and "helicopter right"

    - The main long snapper seems to be Dearth. Dressen & Missant are
    also snapping

    - Coles, Barton & Hunter all practiced. Mccareins didn't be he was
    dressed so he must have been given the day off

    - Westhoff started practice with KO returns & coverage. He had Nugent
    kicking from the 40 and he kicked it easily into the end zone (60 yds)

    - Mcclover was good on coverage he blew up Joyce

    - Cotchery, Miller, Carter & Joyce were the returners

    - Westhoff seemed to be more concerned with the blocking schemes than
    the coverage team

    - Marrone has this "cage" which he loads the o-line men into. It has
    a horizontal bar which forces the line to stay low and explode out of
    there blocks. Its funny its like the guys are doing the limbo

    Good stuff, KRL.

    How did Rhodes and Maddox look?

    I also heard McGraw is banged up again...Did he practice?

    So much for the myth that he couldn't get the pro ball into the end-zone on KO's

    - Watching the DB's & LB's go through their position drills is amazing. They
    run faster backwards and side to side than alot of us do going forward

    When scrimmage started here's what I saw:

    - On offense there was alot of three WR sets. Sometimes they split
    the FB and TE out wide also

    - Adrian Jones was blocking well again

    - Shockingly Harper & Legree finally showed good penetration. They got
    Askew behind the line once. And Legree burst in for what would have
    been a sack if tackling was allowed

    - Mcgill & Pouha were good again up the middle. They forced a tackle
    behind the line on Joyce

    - As much as we are all annoyed at Abraham for missing games, we need
    him. Thomas & Johnson are good backups but they don't get consistent
    pressure on the QB

    - Sowell is still the first team FB. It also seems Dinger has him in an
    H-back role. He's moving around alot

    - Cotchery was the best WR on the field today. Had two TD's one from
    Chad on a fade pattern. He also abused #32 Johnson, throwing him
    off at the line of scrimmage to run his pattern

    - The best safety on the field was Rashad Washington. He had a nice
    INT and was strong in run support

    - Defense was sharp again today. Forced alot of incompletions and
    flushed the QB out of the pocket

    - Dinger & Donnie are starting to mix up the personnel, so there are alot
    of different combinations

    - Donnie was showing the "three safety" look again. Also, there were
    times when a DE would stand up and play a LB position. There was also
    one time were two lineman would back off and play LB positions

    - Dennis Haley & Mondoe Davis did a good job penetrating particularly
    when Mcgill & Pouha were in front of them

    - Haley was the best LB on the field today. Showed good coverage on
    Baker, controlled the middle of the field and blitzed well

    - Miller had a nice breakup on a 30 yd pass to Carter from Chad

    - Strait had a nice INT off of Fiedler

    - Safeties played well (Coleman, Rhodes, Maddox, Celestin & Washington)
    they didn't allow WR's to get deep. I'm not seeing much from Mcgraw &
    Pagel though

    - Chad needs more reps. He's still erratic, he made a nice fade to
    Cotchery and hit Baker on a nice middle route. But the crispness you
    expect from him isn't there yet. The good thing is his throws have
    good zip and carry on them. When he's throwing those 15-20 yd
    patterns he's not floating them

    - Finally, Herm is getting the team ready for games, because he had the
    new conditioning coach (Marcus Paul) make the team run SIX 50 yard
    sprints before he let them leave the field

    Great job on the reports man, but that conditioning is *****-****, on our JV team our coach makes us run 6 150's with no rest and a jog back.

    I hope that we didn't give up on McGraw -- guy's got tremendous talent. I'd like to see him get one more chance at being the #1 SS, providing that he manages to stay healthy.

    Glass Joe/Mr. Glass is shot. Seriously.

    I hate giving up on a kid, especially one so talented, but this guy just can't stay on the field. For a safety to be as beat up as he is, as often as he is, doesn't help us one bit.

    I think Herm and Henderson are holding out hope that McGraw hangs on and stays healthy, but they must also realize that every day this guy sits on the trainers table, Rhodes and Maddox impress.
