A WHOLE PIE!

Made it out to the open mini-camp practice today...
  • Met Darrell Green, he was standing at the end of the breezeway and I might have been the only person that recognized him. Didn't ask for an autograph or a pic because he was clearly trying to maintain a low profile. Hurney caught wind that he was there and invited him down to the field.
  • Good crowd showed up, they originally had about 4 sections available for seating in the east endzone but had to open several more sections to accommodate all the fans that showed up.
  • During warm ups, I saw Medlock nail a FG from the 45... but it was the 45 on the opposite site of the 50 from the direction he was facing! I could close my eyes and tell when he kicked the ball.
  • Both Harris and Nortman hit a few nice punts, Harris in particular seemed to be able to drop them in the "coffin corner" on a pretty consistent basis. Nortman has a lot of "action" on his punts, it's like a knuckleball. He dropped a few right inside the 10.
  • Armanti made a really nice catch over Brandon Hogan on a fly route, He also dropped a ball on a crossing route.
  • Hogan got beat quite a bit today... can't remember one breakup he had, didn't seem to be moving very fast, was not impressed.
  • Josh Norman did impress, they had him matched up with Smitty quite a bit today and he held is own. On one play he kept Smitty from catching a pass in the endzone and then stared him down with a grin on his face... Smitty ignored him and jogged back to the huddle.
  • Greg Hardy looked every bit of 299, a couple of the guys around me commented on how big he looked.
  • Clausen threw several picks and several of the passes that were not picked should have been. Kuechly made a nice play on one of them, jumping into the passing lane on a crossing route and taking it down the sideline. Was funny to watch Cam chase him down and try to strip the ball, LOL
  • TD took a few reps, everything was about half speed and there was no hitting but it was good to see #58 out there.
  • Mike Tolbert's speed is impressive, he caught a few passes in the flat with the ease of a WR and flew down the sideline... he's going to be a weapon for sure.
  • Cam threw some really nice balls, including a couple balls that required a good deal of anticipation and were right on target. He also sailed one over the head of Stewart on a checkdown and there were several times when nobody was open and Cam had to scramble and/or throw out of bounds.
That's about all I can think of now, feel free to ask questions - it may spark something that I saw that I'm just not thinking of right now.

Edit: here's more stuff I thought of...
  • Darvin Adams flashes a few times, made a couple of really nice catches during 11 on 11 and 7 on 7. He was flashing to the point that the guy next to me said "who the heck is that?".

Hardy looked like a monster out there today. at one point he was just entertaining himself by punching the crap out of the dummies.

Nope, but it happened right in front of me and it was a great catch... maybe the most impressive catch of the day.

Tolbert is going to be a force this season . he lined up as fullback, tailback, and wr. he looked really good out there and will make our offense so much more dangerous. I am really liking his potential on this team.
