'Q: How many starting positions are still being contested?

Probably five really good position battles are going on. We’re pretty well set with our No. 2 receiver (Brandon LaFell). But our No. 3 receiver is still a battle. Is it going to be (Louis) Murphy, is it going to be (Seyi) Ajirotutu, is it going to be Kealoha? Our defensive tackles are battling it out. It looks like Ron Edwards is going to be the nose but who’s going to be the three? I think Captain Munnerlyn has a foothold on (cornerback opposite Chris Gamble) but they’ll still battling it out for the third position."

saw that, but i'm still hope that's just Riveras way of motivating Norman and Hogan to get back on the field.

As long as we keep improving I'm easy. It'll be fun to watch things go down this preseason

Q: Every camp has surprises. Who has surprised you?

I will say right now defensive back Josh Thomas is really flashing very well, No. 22, he’s done some really good things. I think (wide receiver) Armanti (Edwards) has flashed. This is his third camp so if he continues that would be great for us. When you talk about guys getting better and progressing he really truly has progressed. (Wide receiver) Kealoha (Pilares) is flashing. He’s having a very good camp. (Safety) Charles Godfrey’s has had an outstanding, outstanding training camp.

Glad to hear that about Godfrey. He has all the ability in the world, he's just made bad decisions in coverage the last two years. RR keeps talking up Edwards as well.

hmm noticed he didn't even mention Gettis when talking about competition for the 3rd WR spot.

That's because he hasn't been competing.

Man I love our coach, even if he used the word 'flash' 15 times in a paragraph.

Almost get chills when he talks about the Superbowl: "It’s a matter of time."

One thing I really like about RR is not only did he bring in a lot of great role players from san diego, but he also brings in other guys from within that division for cheap. he recognized talent that people in the media don't and sees what they can bring to a team.
