    You don't want to kill them before they even put pads on.

    I always go back and look at what I've missed...

    Everytime somebody posts a link to JM's blog, I go back and read the earlier posts that I've missed first.

    I like what I'm hearing...

    – Admittedly against an offensive line that can’t cut block or fully engage, Kelly appears to be getting consistent penetration at tackle. Terdell Sands also appears to be in better condition.

    – Some interesting defensive looks _ John Bowie coming on a corner blitz with Hiram Eugene sliding over to take the receiver, Nnamdi Asomugha coming on a corner blitz, and Thomas Howard coming on a blitz.

    –After O’Neill went to the ground on a pass pattern near the sideline following contact from second-round pick Mike Mitchell, defensive coordinator John Marshall said, “Mike, stay off him!”

    – Russell did have one jaw-dropping throw _ a laser to Tony Stewart some 30 yards downfield on a line between two defenders.

    Quote Originally Posted by Jerry Mac's Blog - Minicamp notebook, quotebook
    – Jeff Garcia has been flawlessly diplomatic in his acceptance of being Russell’s backup quarterback since his arrival. He said he is fine with being called a “mentor” by Cable, and had some interesting observations about what Russell can pick up from watching him.

    “Deep inside we’re all competitors and we all play this game to be on the field, to not be on the sidelines,” Garcia said. “Hopefully that competitive drive is just what allows JaMarcus to increase his own competitive spirit.

    “The greatest understanding that needs to come out of all this is that this is a small window in our lives. It’s a small window of opportunity to and to make the most of this opportunity. And if that means you need to put more pressure on yourself to strive to be better, to do the little things that are going to make you better, then that’s what we all need to do. Hopefully that’s something that he will see in me in the sense of how I approach every single day.”
    Quote Originally Posted by Jerry Mac's Blog - DHB sits it out
    – Guard Cooper Carlisle found himself on the ground during the no-contact drills courtesy of Tommy Kelly two times in a span of three plays.

    – Russell’s passing continued to be hit and miss, with a lot short throws to running backs and tight ends with the occasional attempt downfield. He found Louis Murphy on a deep cross on one attempt, and later threw a high wobbler down the left sideline toward Murphy that missed badly out of bounds with Justin Miller in coverage.

    Practice ended with Russell completing a sideline route to Murphy.

    – A good sign offensively _ two well-executed screen passes, one from Russell to Michael Bush and another from Bruce Gradkowski to Louis Rankin.

    Linebacker Ricky Brown returned after sitting out the first session, and deflected and nearly intercepted a Garcia pass.
    Training camps... not a lot of action.

    Shields probably won't make the roster the way things are going. Every receiver on this team can do what he can do, run fast. He brings nothing to the table that the others can't as far as I'm concerned.

    allegedly..this guy runs/ran excellent routes....we'll never know because this guy hasn't been able to get on the field....

    this sucks that he was a 4th round pick....ugh!

    Keep in mind that none of these guys are under contract yet. Could be a business move. Who knows?

    Let's be honest though, this is not going to be the moment that makes or breaks this draft. Wait til September...
