Re: Any comments on tonight's practice?
Well, I have been reading in various places where Jonathan Wells was having his best camp in three years and I felt like last night I saw it. I'm not sure if that translates to anything very important but I thought he looked much more focused and intense than in years past. Contract years have a tendancy to do that for you I guess.
I thought Hollings looked wicked fast at times. He's got that little "Zip" when he pops through the hole. Davis looked like Davis (which is a good thing) and all in all I'd say that our running back situation looks great.
Honestly every time I go to one of the practices I have all these intentions of trying to look for specific players and see how they're doing, maybe take some notes and of course I bring my camera. Reality is that once I get to watching them I lose focus. I guess I'm not a very good training camp reporter. My observations from last night amount to something like this:
Backs looked good to me.
JJ was fun to watch.
Ragone didn't seem terribly focused and I thought he looked a little lost.
Renteria (DE, #64) who I have been pulling for got owned a few times when I was watching him. I wasn't impressed.
The offensive line looked good to me. I thought Wade and Wand looked huge out there on the ends.
That's about it. Like I said I'm not that good of an observer.
It would have helped if so many people hadn't kept walking in front of me constantly. Next time I go to a practice I'll avoid the front row like the plague. Good view when you don't have someone stopping right in front of you to watch the play you were trying to get a picture of but next time I'll head for the top of the bleachers.
Fitz makes bad decisions. That's not going to change.
