There wasn’t much to today’s practice. A lot of walk thru and scout team sessions. The weather was great for the final day, borderline chilly with a few rain showers from time to time. As I was leaving the facilities, workers had already taken down half of the banners and were loading up the team shop. They were ready to get out of town. Head inside for some brief notes and some pictures from the final day of Chiefs Training Camp 2012.
-The team worked pooch punts on long FG attempts during this portion. Was interesting to watch.
Defensive Line Drills
-DL were working their way down the line, avoiding reach blocks.
-Glenn Dorsey was drilling his partner in this session. He has a strong punch.
-Ropati Pitoitua is a monster. He throws guys around with ease.
-Worked on hitting the correct guy when facing zone blocking. Not letting him out of the gate cleanly
-They also worked on diagnosing the play and reacting to what they are seeing.
-Worked on zone coverage. Switching receivers when entering or leaving your zone.
-Chiefs linebackers coach Gary Gibbs was working with Tamba Hali quite a bit in this drill.

-Hillis seeing a lot of carries up the middle.
-Jerrell Powe put Rodney Hudson on his back.
