Today was a great day in St Joe. The weather was amazing and the practice was full of drills and scrimmage time. Check out the notes inside.
-Shane Bannon is back on the practice field in full pads.
-Josh Bellamy working quite a bit on catching the football. He definitely wants to improve in that area.
-Jonathan Baldwin continues to get work in with OC Brian Daboll before practice. After this work was done, Baldwin punted the ball 45 yards to the 2 yard line where it died. This guy can do everything.
-Brandon Bair and Jerome long were once again 2 of the first Chiefs on the practice field. They’re putting in a lot of extra work on their technique.
Offensive Walk Thru
-Matt Cassel taking charge of his group and putting his guys in the correct position presnap. It’s good to see him developing into even more of a leader.
-Worked on a fake reverse to Breaston numerous times.
-Play action fake to running back, Cassel hits Kevin Boss on a deep post.
-Tony Moeaki motioned to the fullback spot.
-Nate Eachus still running with 1st team at fullback, even with Shane Bannon in full pads.
-Working the misdirection runs quite a bit.
-OC Brian Daboll works with Baldwin, Breaston and Dexter McCluster on how to line up in the trips stacked formation. Remained coaching Breaston after the play.
-Ricky Stanzi ran with 2nd offense.
-Chiefs OL Coach Bicknell getting on the 2nd team OL during walk thru.
-WR Coach Nickj Sirianni starts off the drill with a “Let’s get better today”.
-Josh Bellamy to make a clean catch.
-QBs surrounded by 4 other QBs and coaches with giant bouncy balls. The surrounding persons would throw the balls at the QB and he had to dodge them and then make a clean throw. Cassel after the drill was finished launched one of the balls at the back of Alex Tanney, which led to a loud laugh from the crowd.
QB Working With WR
-Josh Bellamy making much cleaner catches.
-Jonathan Baldwin gets an earful from OC Daboll on his route running.
-Back to back reps for Baldwin in which Daboll gets on him. Looked like this time was for rounding off the route.
-Now Daboll gets on multiple WR for running clean routes.
