Starting Friday I will be attending every practice for a week.

 

I will once again be posting photos in the patent pending daily story time threads as well as conducting player interviews and twittering here and there.

 

So I have a few question for you all.

 

1. What do you look forward to most about training camp coverage

 

2. What do you least enjoy about training camp coverage (tweets, photos, redundant interviews, etc)

 

3. Do you have any particular positional matchup that you find most intriguing

 

4. Who are your dark horse players?

I'm gonna need you to head to Cleveland and keep us up to date with everything Johnny Manziel.  How does he look, how does he act, who is he hanging out with, what is he wearing, what is he currently fuged up on, you know...  the works.

But seriously, you do a great job as it is already in covering TC.  Just keep doing what you normally do every year and keep us up to date with what you think is the most interesting.  I'm sure others will toss out some ideas i'm too lazy to think of right now.

I do get tired of the "What can you bring to the team" and "What do you expect this year" questions. Quite frankly everyone responds the same way. I'd rather know favorite pie flavors.

Can't wait to see our new look secondary, Kony Ealy, and 2nd year Big Star.

Greg Olsen:
I think he's going into a breakout season. With a newly fixed WR group, I think Shula will feature Greg Olsen in a variety of ways. He will be Cam's go to receiver.

Dark horse players: Philly Brown, Bene Benwikere, and Carrington Byndom.

Matchup: STAR LOTULELEI vs. AMINI SILATOLU

1. LOVE the camp pics!!! I'll be attending a couple practices next week as well but the pics are always great!

2. Personally I don't like the redundant politically correct interviews....ask them some crazy questions to mix it up haha

3. Really interested In the Chase Blackburn/ AJ Klein battle and of course the chandler/bell scenario....and also if Melvin white takes the next step this year the whole secondary will be interesting to watch

4. Dark horse if you wanna call it that is bene benwikere, super interested to see how he develops, and also Robert Lester, again not really a dark horse as he was productive last year

You do a fantastic job not just with Training Camp but with everything you do for this site in general. Don't change anything.

I do second the pie question though. Once you know a man's favorite pie you know their character.

As far as mashups:

WR- Where is KB getting reps and how does he look? Underwood legit speed guy or camp fodder? Does one of King/McNutt look ready to contribute?

OT: for obvious reasons.

DE: Hows Kony look. Is Hardy in shape and taking his 13 mil serious on the field at least?

RB: Do we have the double trouble of old? How's Stew look? Fresh? And the kid out of Stanford. We know he can pass block but how are his hands and technique?

Josh Norman is my dark horse player. Will Smitty being gone could he be one of those players constantly berratted here and there?

If he could make a jump to play like he does in practice man oh man our already stout D could be that much better.

Well, I most enjoy your incredible photographs and commentary going along with each one.

I would love it if you could throw in some light hearted, offbeat questions instead of just all the same old canned questions.

I'm interested in Bell/Chandler and how Kony Ealy is developing, especially given the Hardy situation.

I think the dark horse is also Bene. Just have a good feeling about him.

Thank you for giving us all the goods J!


2 days until the gloriousness of football returns.....

1. Definitely excited to see some of the great pics you post.

 

2. I agree with most of the guys here in that the interviews can be crazy redundant, but some questions about the team chemistry would be good. 

 

3. The defensive backfield competition and of course O-line and WR battles are what intrigue me this year. Looking forward to seeing how Godfrey performs with moving back to the corner position, if the 'left-handed' theory holds any weight lol, and although we don't have any primadonas (or however you spell that) at the WR position that should make for the best position battle of camp.

 

4. Brenston Bersin, Lyndon Gaydosh, and Josh Norman are my dark horses. Every article I have read that mentions Bersin point out his precise route running and hard work. Gaydosh has peaked my interest since last camp and I'm hoping we've found yet another big hog mollie to add to the best D-line in all of football. And I think this is the year Norman finally puts it all together, it's either now or never and I'm hoping the light bulb has finally decided to turn on with him. 

 

That all being said I have always enjoyed your camp pics and posts. So continue doing things the way you have and you'll have a bunch of satisfied huddlers!

Love it all.

 

Agree with the curve-ball questions.

 

All DB's all the time. (Ask them only about the WR's)

 

Decoud, McNutt, Swole Bone, Tyler Gaffney.

I'm most interested in hearing about what is going on with Left Tackle and the Wide Receivers.

I love the photos. There is not much that I dislike about coverage.

Questions? Anything that can get the player out of cliche mode.

Camp battles I am most interested in will be Nickel, RG, OT, and FB. I'm kind of intrigued by Zordich.

I think Andrew Norwell could be a sleeper at LG and Zordich could emerge as our FB.

Pics are great and daily summaries of camp are my favorite. I don't have time or interest to follow every tweet and I really enjoy your summaries.
