Now I know who the coach was that stood watching from the sideline way behind the secondary during the defense v offense drills, Chris Harris. Players like Tillman & Coleman & a few others kept coming up to talk to him after coming off the field & now I know why. Very glad he's here. Good to hear about Colin Jones. He's one of my favorite Panthers. Besides STs, McDermott threw him in on some disguised defenses & would find a way to get him out there when offenses ran no-huddle.
I'm impressed that King is at our camp on the 2nd day. I'd think Pittsburgh or Dallas or Houston would be more his style for early camp visits. You can thank him for all the team motivational material he's given us.
I ignore the circlejerking & cat calling except to chuckle every once in awhile at who is fapping to what lol. I've been on the Huddle since 2003 & have seen many, many phases come & go. This too shall pass. The consumption of too much alcohol does bother me from time to time because it means that poster is not paying attention to the football being played & not able to intelligently discuss much of anything because they don't remember squat. That's why I typically stay away on game day. But it's not just a Huddle thing. From crowd watching at home games, it's apparently a football thing that affects men & women alike of all ages. I came to the Huddle for the football but stay because all of you make me laugh or think or both. And Jeremy's pics & videos are truly outstanding. So, Jeremy, did you ban the guy or what?
I saw KB helping with a QB-focused drill while the other WR's were going through separate drills of their own. Which tells me that Coach Proehl sees absolutely no problems with Kelvin. None. Good enough for me.
I started out watching the big fellas, really wanted to see how both lines were doing. But realized that until they can truly tackle, it's not showing us much at all. Then I started watching the WR's & secondary. But IMO Ohr won that battle, keeping Alexander engaged & not letting him escape the block. Moving the DE sideways is always better than letting him move you backwards. Always. Besides, the play probably would've been over in half that time, before Ohr grabbed the shoulder of the jersey. Thanks, Jeremy, for the vine! Appreciate it! :)
We played a much more basic zone defense at the beginning of last year than we had previously & I believe that was because of the injuries & inexperience in our secondary. Once players were healthy and showed talent within our system, we went to man-to-man & disguised defenses. Benwikere returned healthy & Norman got his groove on and they were freed to play man-to-man & cover tightly. IMO that is why we won the 2nd Saints game but not the 1st. We didn't make any big changes from the end of last season so, if everyone stays healthy, we will sweep them this year. ::fingers crossed, sacrifices made to football gods::
I wouldn't get excited by this. Veterans Colston & Byrd are on the PUP list probably so they can avoid the full rigors of training camp. They'll start when it counts. No clue about Foster, this is only his 3rd season.
After the 1996 Steelers game that sent us to the playoffs, winning the NFC WEST in just our 2nd year. No one wanted to leave, no one! And then watching my children (13 & 11 then) high-fiving the players as they came back out & ran around the stadium. My kids were so excited, I'll never forget that night. Then us surprising the world by going to the Super Bowl.
I feel so sorry for Reaves. From his tweets, he was really excited about training camp, more so than anyone else. Here's hoping they re-sign him at some point or he lands nicely somewhere else & does well. Stay in shape, bud!!
