Tattoorhinos observations from camp

I hope we sign Landri back and another DT. Right now our DTs look pathetic.

Tonight was the first time we had even one of our potential starters out there.

I don't think I've seen Hardy's name mentioned at all. Has he been on the field any?

And thanks for the reports.

He got in a motocycle accident and is sidelined for at least 2 weeks

He's out a couple weeks after some minor injuries suffered in a motorcycle crash recently. There are threads about if you want to read the article.

Thanks for the write-up.

I agree with Veins, McClain looking good is great news. I was afraid he would come in tentative after the holdout and never catch up. Our DL could really benefit from a strong 3 tech, and I still have high hopes for Fua as well.

The part about Smitty and the obvious dislike of Jimmy is disappointing. We all know they aren't best buds, but Steve needs to keep it to himself.

As to the hard hitting and contact, hopefully the team will get a good dose of it against the Giants.

Thanks again.

Marcus Stroud or Tommie Harris would be awesome

Ok, so against my better judgement I am going to give my opinion of tonights practice.

1. I miss the good ole days of fighting, hitting like you want to hurt someones family when you hit em, and showing the guy across from you that you mean business even if its practice. These new wimpy training camp rules suck. First night in pads and maybe 30 minutes total work in actually hitting someone. I was really hoping Wofford would be practicing at the same time so I could actually watch football practice like it should be. Go ahead and put the flags on now. OK on with observations.

2. Cam is energetic more so than the energizer bunny and it is infectious. The guy really never ever looked like he wasnt having the time of his life. He also signed FOREVER after practice and something I thought was cool and some people might think is arrogant but when I handed him my football to sign that was already almost filled he turned it over and signed his name as big as the bottom of the football. Kinda like I'm the man and I dont take little spots, here is your moneys worth. Unlike last year when Jimmy wouldnt sign anything unless it was signed to you personally and was kinda a douche. this year no one was wanting his signature so I guess he might be a little more humble this year.

3. Everyone seemed to be having a good happy time. I dont like that, I like Defensive guys getting in the face of the offensive guy and both giving everything they have got,this year everybody wants to just be happy.

4 Ziembe #75 is as big an individual I have ever seen. Duke still looks out of shape and Otah looks awesome. Our running game should get us at least 8 wins alone.

5. The linebackers will kill QB's this year and I am gonna love to see it. They were knocking the crap out of each other in drills. They just wanna hit someone and thats without our 4 best LB's watching. WOW thats exciting.

6. Mcclain looked great. He is huge also. Huge but fast. What i like is he can play the run or the pass and then our LB's are going to hurt little Matty Ryan, and sweet little birthmark face Drew Brees. they arent gonna know what hit em.

7.Zod has some really nice legs and Panthro looked pretty hot himself. I enjoyed speaking to both of them although inside i wanted to shank them in the bathroom and steal their passes. Jealousy is a bitch.

8. Trent Guy has great hands and runs great routes.

9. Smitty doesnt seem to like Clausen at all and after being led into traffic and jacked up he got up shaking his head.

10. Everette Brown doesnt impress me at all this year. He was getting mauled by everybody.

11. I thought for sure the Nick Hayden project was over but damn if I didnt seem him out there doing nothing as usual. I can only pray he is camp fodder.

12. Armanti really does look like a different person out there and you can tell he took the Fox comments to heart and is playing with a chip on his shoulder.

I will be back Thursday and will report more. Check out my twitter then @tattoorhino and you will get updates right as they happen.

Have a great night.

13. cam spent about 20 seconds pretending to be an airplane, arms out, flying around coaches. i wish there was video of this, as it was the highlight of the night.

All reports say McClain dominated last night. Plus, Ron Edwards has yet to practice due to the CBA stuff. He'll start as well, which should be good enough unless injuries become a problem.
