Family Day!

OK, was I the only goofball there? Must be new rules or philosophy, the scrimmage was a practice. No more real game, Brown versus White. They ran the same type of drills as training camp...except the view could not be hidden by hiding in the corner of the practice fields.

I don't have much new info...but here's my blurbs.

Little droppped a routine catch for a TD then followed that up with an insane body twisting catch for a TD. Braylon like.

Francies looked good...but dropped a picked 6 after McCoy threw a pass behind Cribbs which he proceded to bobble and pop into the air.

McCoy is in love with the check down.

The TE drag with WR's going to the end line is our favorite redzone play.
Both QB's totally staring down the TE's.

Hillis dropped a few swing passes.

Hillis and Jackson double RB backfield looks very interesting.

Haden was really playing up to the crowds. He seems like a great guy. He didn't play. Neither did Hardesty.

Octavian the linebacker is totally a DE. The guy is huge. No one else sees that on the coaching staff?

That's it...my kids were being bad.

My 6 year old wanted to talked to every homeless panhandler on the walk over. My 12 year old sat next to me and instead of talking, texted me his thoughts.

Total failure as a parent.

Good to hear about Francies. If that guy can develop into a legit NFL corner, we are so much deeper at that spot...Brown, Patterson, Skrine?...to go with Haden. I have always felt Francies had the skills (if not the ideal 4.4 speed) to play the position well.

You are right about his skills. His issues have always been upstairs.Maturity has been his enemy until this point....I hope he has turned the mental corner. The kid can play.

This follows many reports from TC. The kid needs to start hanging on to the routine passes. His role (and value) is in catching a 7 yard crossing route and creating YAC, not in making the circus catch.

McCoy is in love with the check down.


More good news. But I would be interested in hearing whether this was his doing (ie: unwilling to let the play develop) or taking what the D gave him (ie: our shitty WRs can't get open).

Great point about wanting to know why the dump off. People have to understand that the short pass (RB,FB,TE) is a huge part of the original WCO.

For example in studying the Bill Walsh 49ers, they averaged about 300-350 receptions a year and it really is divided up with each group getting 1/3 of the action RBs(FBs),TEs,Wrs.

In 1984 when they went 15-1 Roger Craig was the leading pass catcher with over 90 receptions. Big chunks will be more about the YAC and blown coverage than long passes.

More short passes instead of a few long ones also works T.O.P and fatigue on the defense.

The key is not using the same check down over and over again and first and foremost going through the progressions on every play.
