What a miserable day it was yesterday.. I was 1 of only 4 fans who stayed the entire practice through the cold and rain. But I toughed my way through it with all you guys in mind :lol: ..
From what I saw yesterday it was a tough day for QBs and receivers as the football was very slippery but with that being said there were players who proved it wasn't a factor.
#11 - Samuel Giguere: I don't want to sound like a broken record but Sam is the real deal, he catches EVERYTHING he gets his hands on even in tough weather like yesterday. I have been extremely impressed with him so far and hope he continues his improvement and works him self into a starting position come season start.
#17 - Nick Fanuzzi: Out of all the quarterbacks Nick was the guy who looked to be struggling the past two days. He just doesn't look like he has the accuracy or arm strength to be a player in this league. The other two rookies are more athletic and have a much better arm. I see Forcier and Harris battling for the 3 spot in the main camp.
#29 - Chevon Walker: He looks like he might be one of those good running back finds for Obie.. Walker has great hands out of the backfield and looks very elusive when he has the football. Walker made a couple great catches out of the backfield one being a one handed grab in traffic with pressure from two defenders barring down on him. It will be interesting to see how he blocks in the two preseason games, but from an early analyses he looks to be the front runner to be Mallett's back up(if Grant isn't cleared to play).
#92 - Robert Rose: Rose is a big guy, he is also surprisingly quick as well. I think he will be a very strong candidate for the starting defensive end spot. I look forward to seeing how he does against our vets in the pass rush and one on one drills. I think Rose and Greg Peach will make a great 1, 2 punch this season.
#68 - Jason Medeiros: Now it is hard to watch the offensive line man because they are almost always working in the far corners of the field. But what I could see of Medeiros is that he is taking snaps at center and looks surprisingly good there. Jason might just have a spot on the team if he continues to work hard and prove he is versatile in playing multiple positions in the interior line. Being a hometown boy also gives him a plus 1 in my books also :lol:
I can't wait for Sunday now.. I will be watching Fantuz almost exclusively so don't count on a detailed report come Sunday night LOL :lol: I have been a HUGE fan of Andy's since he was lighting it up in college, and sad to say I wanted Hamilton to tank his draft year so that we could pick him. Now that he is playing for Hamilton I am on cloud nine! lol
