On the Field for Practice – 9/19

  • An early practice today, as Friday is something of a shorter day. Not short on intensity, though — one drill was introduced to repeated, emphatic shouts of “Make it realistic, it’s Friday!”
  • Jason Taylor looked quick and active during practice today, batting down one pass and intercepting another at the line. He really does seem recovered from his preseason injury, as well as whatever follow-up ding he suffered during Sunday’s game.
  • An amusing sidelight during defensive line drills today while the guys were doing a reaction time drill, turning and catching a ball coming straight for them. It was running smoothly, as these drills tend to, when Andre Carter mistimed his turn and had the ball bounce clear off his helmet. This, of course, led to much gentle (and not so gentle) mockery.
  • Carlos Rogers had what might have been the best practice I’ve seen from him. He had one interception yesterday and two more today, but what was good to see about today’s picks is that no one teased him for successfully catching them. Be really nice for both him and the team if that could become the norm. Reed Doughty also made a nice interception, stepping cleanly in front of the receiver.
  • What I noticed about Jason Campbell today was that he seemed to be throwing really well rolling out and on the move in general. There have been times when that’s looked slow to me, but I thought it looked effective today, and it didn’t lead to any missed throws that I saw. The time Campbell received the loudest accolades from Coach Zorn, though was when he threw the ball away at the feet of a receiver. It was the sort of play I probably wouldn’t have noted at all, but Zorn’s praise was effusive and surprising.
  • Coach Zorn acknowledged the possibility of having to go with three wide receivers this week, as both Malcolm Kelly and James Thrash are still dinged and are (informally) questionable to play this week, although both practiced. The good news on that front, though, is that “Devin Thomas is in the mix…. He’s starting to play faster, and he’s improving himself as we go on.”
  • Other injury updates from Zorn: Marcus Washington looks good, although still somewhat limited. Khary Campbell looked “a little ginger,” but should be okay. H.B. Blades, Carlos Rogers, and Fred Smoot all looked “fine,” although he noted that Smoot might be a step behind the other two.

You wanna be a cheerleader and jump around, go find a skirt and pom poms. MW is a mary, we don’t need u bro.
