Brandon Williams is starting to get some notice. He had some nice grabs today.

God I hope Williams can stay healthy.

Awesome as usual Zod. I'm glad to hear Hixon is making some noise out there, we need both him and Brandon Williams to succeed for us. I'm also trying to temper my excitement for Barner, but it isn't working very well.

 

I'm still confused by this continued flow of conflicting reports on the day for Cam.

Zod, have you noticed a difference in atmosphere down there?  Haven't been yet this year but the last 2 years were definitely a lot more lax with Rivera than some of the brutal camps Fox used to run (especially early on).  From a fan's perspective, I miss the 2 a days b/c it usually meant you were going to see the pads at least once.

 

2008 was the last training camp I went to that really seemed tense.  Of course, the Smitty/Lucas fight was an offspring of that but so was a 12-4 season...

I'm more interested in how Cam bounces back from a rough day than I am him actually having a rough day. See how quickly he can forget/learn from it and move on.

Good point.

 

If they come back and the headline reads 

 

Cam came out and put on a show today, I would actually raise my expected wins for the season.

I'm rooting for Brandon to make the squad. Hell, he SHOULD make the final 53 roster if he can stay healthy.

As for Cam's bad day, eh. He had one last year and a few of them the year before that too. Not a big deal. That arm must be exhausted by now.

i love it because luke's studliness is well documented and accepted. this can only mean good things for barner.

 

this is two big criticisms of barner addressed really well in a short amount of time. his running upright and blocking. i think he was well worth the pick even without those and would have been a very lethal weapon without them as well, but this only makes his pick more valuable.

A rookie runningback holding his own against the current defensive rookie of the year? Uh... I love it.

Shows me that Barner is already showing signs that he can contribute early if he keeps it up. Keep adding pieces to the puzzle.
