I'm not saying what day this happened, don't want to get anyone in trouble: had lunch today with a former team mate who popped in to say "hello" to some of the staff over there, and he got to watch about an hour of workouts in the dome. Said it was a mixture of speed/strength/conditioning drills as well as ball drills. Ball drills are mostly tip drills, fumble drills, wrs and dbs going in and out of breaks etc.... So it appears we look pretty fast in the secondary. Like, really fast. Like, as fast as we've been in a decade. The dbs appear to be running circles around our wrs. I was told we've got dbs that can backpedal with REALLY low hips and open and turn on a dime. It also appears that our dbs will be lining up a little different that the past..... In the last few years, our dbs are usually 5-7 yards off the wrs so as to not let anyone past them. I was told that the vast majority of time, dbs were on the line jamming the sh!t out of the wrs. He said he was very impressed with their communications and overall togetherness. Everyone seemed to be on the same page. You'll remember past years I talked about watching safeties and corners arguing over coverages leading to us getting beat deep down the defenses left side for touchdowns..... and then watching the same miscommunication happen during a game we and get smoked for a td.......... he said that's not happening anymore. So, we look good there...... but wrs look a little weak. Said one of the running backs was showing some soft hands out of the backfield..... didn't say whom. Lots of wheel routes and flat route bailouts for the qb. No word on any of the TEs. That is all.
