After sitting in the hot sun for a couple hours, I did have a few takeaways, as well as a clip video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM9mCM8pM8E) from the open scrimmage the university so graciously thrust upon us on Sunday:
Teddy is as advertised. His throws were on target but seemed effortless. As we've seen before, the flick of his wrist was 30 yards. Will Gardner on the other hand, he might get someone killed. Many times he led a receiver across the middle directly into the teeth of the secondary. I udnerstand that we should expect a step down from 1st string to 2nd string, but this is a HUGE step.
Corvin Lamb's speed may have actually improved. His cuts were quick and clean. Dominique Brown looked 100% and should regain his role as the starting RB. Michael Dyer has tree trunks for arms. His first step looked a bit slow but overall downfield he could sustain speed. Senorise Perry went looking for contact. He was begging for it. This guy wants to play.
The receiving core was in full force minus Damian Copeland. James Quick is just that; quick. He could get downfield quicker than most CB's that were covering him. Devante Parker made some fantastic catches, stuff you don't expect to see in a scrimmage. He also took a couple hits, bouncing right back up. This was a non-contact scrimmage, at least at the ball-handling positions. Michaelee Harris was fun to watch, finally, and I'm convinced Eli Rogers has super glue on his hands.
The offensive line has some work to do. There was miscommunication, regardless of who was QB. Guys were jumping the snap, missing assignments, slow on the snap when they were on time. But, I also know that things change when you're in the game. The focus sets in, your mind is in ONE place, on that field. Very promising afternoon at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.
