I think today's practice was the only one that's going to be held in the stadium, right? I hope. The stadium felt so impersonal, where the practice field is very close to the players.


Not sure, but I would suspect you are right - I think it was held in the stadium since it was the opening practice and they had all the other festivities going on.

I liked having it in the stadium because everything was more compressed then when they are spread out across the practice fields, but I agree that it has less of a personal feel.

Thanks brother, I had a great time and I take mental notes as I'm sitting there so I can come back here and share what I saw with the folks that couldn't attend because I enjoy being able to do that.

Good observation, I would agree with most points.

I felt like Jimmy looked a little better than Cam did, which isn't saying much. Both QB's made very nice throws when no one was in front of them. As soon as they had a line in front of them and some D they went to hell. Jimmy completed more passes but again that isn't saying much as I believe the total of completed passes at that point, between the two of them was about 7...most if not all within 10 yards.

I am hoping you can't base much from the first practice so I'll leave it at that.

100% agree about the velocity, Cam can zip it

Edwards has made HUGE improvements from last season, at least basing it off of this first practice.

Was the cowboy fan a black male, middle aged? When I was there, there was a very vocal black male wearing a cowboy jersey. He was actually a pretty nice guy. I hit him with a similar zinger and he was good natured about it. He is harmless.

Yeah, sounds like the same guy... he didn't mean any harm but I still thought it was obnoxious to show up at another team's training camp wearing all your Cowboys gear, walk up to someone you don't know and tell them about how you're forced to watch this practice because you're own team is too far away, etc...

Damn CatMan what you doing wearing your autographed jersey? I hope you got that autographed today.

Nope, got it autographed at one of the practices last year... I'm always scared of spilling something on it, but I bought it to wear it so I'm going to enjoy it and hope for the best.

...in fact, I was sweating so profusely today that I had to throw that jersey in the wash tonight. Was worried that something might happen to the autograph but I just got it out and it's all good, phew!
