Thread: Thursday Afternoon--Wagoner
- Some of the collisions between Anthony Hargrove and Alex Barron slightly resemble a train wreck. Those battles are every bit as fun to watch in the one-on-one pass rush drills as Orlando Pace against Hargrove, maybe even more fun. Hargrove and Barron have pretty much played to a draw.
- I am ready to see Barron start taking reps on the right side. Of course, that will mean that I wonít get to see him go against Hargrove anymore, but he clearly has the most potential of the players on the roster to be the complement to Pace on the right side.
- Thereís just something about Jeremy Calahan at defensive tackle that is going to make him a tough cut, if and when that happens. Calahan has done enough to prove that he is deserving of at least a practice squad spot, perhaps more. Technique-wise, he isnít as sound as some of his cohorts, but he might be one of the strongest players on the team right now. He was lights-out in the pass rush drills on Thursday afternoon, at one point tossing center Toby Cecil to the ground like a rag doll.
- Adam Timmerman still has a little ways to go before he is back to full strength but he is beginning to participate in all of the drills. His status for this weekend will be left up to him and the reality is that he probably shouldnít play, but Timmerman is one of the hardest players on the team to keep off the field. Thatís why he still carries an impressive streak of 157 consecutive games played. You almost have to think it would take some sort of amputation to keep Timmerman away at this point.
- Receiver Torry Holt has been sporting some gold-bottomed cleats in practice. While Holt is fast, thatís about as close as heíll get to running like Olympic champion Michael Johnson, who also rocked a pair of gold running shoes in the Atlanta Olympics. Still, the gold bottoms make a nice accessory and are probably about as flashy an item as you will see from Big Game.
Re: Thursday Afternoon--Wagoner
Timmerman is a monster. To able to play his position, with that many consecutive games played, is remarkable.
