I think DB summed it up pretty well. With Crennel's track record there isn't any doubt he know's how to run a defense. That's the only thing I care about.

I don't get the flak Crennel is getting about the Shrine game.

He's there to teach College players.

This is not an NFL practice session.

Crennel has been average at best since leaving New England, and he has been riding that NE early 2000's success in order to stay employed. Yeah he had a decent year here and there, but his post-NE career as a DC/HC has been pretty middling. The inability to make use of practice time would be a good indicator of why he has never coached a top 10 defense since leaving NE. If that report is accurate, then I think we will be looking for a new DC in about 2 years.

The biggest rule in an All Star game is to not get hurt, particularly in practice.

In the pros, sure, but if you think these kids play this game not to get hurt I have a bridge to sell you.

The playbooks are about as vanilla as you can get, but the players play 100%. The practices are usually intense too. Primarily oline and dline drills.

From the reports it doesn't sound like he is teaching them much of anything, or at all. Also this would be a great opportunity to find guys who fit his system in both size, temperament and knowledge. An opportunity that he seems to be wasting in spectacular fashion. Finally a bunch of the players at these games are hoping to use them as an opportunity to show they are capable of playing/practicing at an NFL level and if the reports are correct Crennel isn't giving them much of a chance to do so.

If I was a player of agent of a player I would not be happy with Crennel.

100 players from 2013 EWSG were drafted or signed last year. Zac Stacy, Terron Armstead, Sio Moore, Shamarko Thomas some recognizable names.

Agents want their kids in pads smashing mouths building names for themselves -- more of that "wow" chatter comes from the practices/drills than the games. Media wants the same so they have something to write about before leaving. Players want to experience NFL like practices to learn what will be expected of them.

First practice no pads for RAC's team. Practices are late in the day, which pisses off the writers. Then it sounds like there's a lot of standing around going on. RAC may have a different idea of how to prepare these kids.

Yeah, if I was a college player I'd be pissed too.

I'm not worried about how he practices at a college all star game being any kind of indication of what kind of DC he will be.

I do like Timothy Flanders though, i hope we can pick him up in the later rounds as he is a very good RB.

Alright guys, let's chill on the exaggerations. For one, that is a college "all-star" game. He isn't teaching them anything in the week or two that will override all that they have practiced and done all year long. Just isn't happening.

NFL practices are much different and he obviously wouldn't conduct them the same way. For one, coaches gather together to outline their practices and of course the final word on how it is organized falls upon O'Brien. You are trying to read way too much into a college practice. For the kids, yeah, they can be upset or disappointed since there were scouts and such watching the practices so they could show out but for Crennel it means little to nothing.
