News And Nuggets From Day Four Practice

July 28th, 2013

Here are some observations from Sunday morning practice on Day Four of Bucs training camp:

* “Leadership leads!” Schiano bellows as Bucs practice begins.

* “That’s the way to be!” Schiano hollers.

* Odd. Didn’t know this is an Indy car practice. “Turn nine. Turn nine!” Schiano yells into his bullhorn.

* Quarterbacks actually look sharp this morning, highlighted by a beautiful, Freeman bullet to Mike Williams.

* Just WR drills but sharpest QBs have looked so far in training camp. Of course, no CBs and no DLs.

* “22-YARD LINE GOING AWAY!” Schiano is fired up!

* “LET’S GO BOYS, GET YOUR @SS UP THERE AND KNOW THE PLAY. KNOW THE PLAY!!!”

* Very crisp, intense practice this morning. Almost like team got their rears chewed last night or this morning.

* Second time in three days Mike Williams is seen throwing off a Benn’d Around.

* Mike Williams runs left on Benn’d Around for minimal gain.

* Branden Smith may have gotten away with pass interference on a Freeman bomb.

* Mike Glennon beautiful bomb in stride to Chris Owusu along left sideline. Leonard Johnson on coverage.

* Chris Owusu continues to have a good camp, carrying over his solid OTAs and minicamp.

* On a crossing pattern. Leonard Johnson just gets his fingers on a Freeman pass enough to make Tiquan Underwood bobble and drop ball.

* In this passing drill, for every incompletion, offense has to run back to line and block defenders as if ball was picked or fumbled away.

* With Mark Barron taking a break and Ahmad Black with a minor ankle injury, Cody Grimm working with first team defense.

* The fake noise sounds like a roar from an AC/DC concert it is so loud.

*WR hopeful Carlton Mitchell finishes a catch and run (after the whistle) with a 50-yard full sprint to the end zone.

*TE hopeful Tim Wright fumbles in a drill that requires a reception followed by a run through a line of coaches trying to strip the ball. Not a way to make the team.

*Late in practice, Mike Sullivan wants to see energy as the Bucs’ transition to new 11-on-11 work. “On the move. Let’s finish. Let’s finish, baby.”

*Safety Keith Tandy out of position with the second team against the first team, freeing Mike Williams for a solid gain. … Tandy made up for it in coverage on the next play

*Cody Grimm spent extended time at safety with the first team alongside Mark Barron.

*No limp on Carl Nicks as he patrolled the sideline late in practice wearing flip-flops.

*Rookie CB Rashaan Melvin with clean coverage on Mike Williams. … Melvin seems to get extra attention from coaches at most practices.

*Schiano scolds/corrects the in-house official at practice.

*Tiquan Underwood beats CB Michael Adams soundly on an inside route.

*Sloppy! Officials call the Bucs’ offense for an illegal shift/five men in the backfield, which was offset by DE Aaron Morgan jumping offsides.

*Mike Glennon rattled by pressure from a blitzing Sean Baker.

* MYRON! Nine Lives got bailed out of pass interference on Chris Owusu as Mike Adams was offsides.

*WR/Returner hopeful Eric Page spending a lot of time after practice getting tutored on releasing off the line of scrimmage.

    Joe, these are some great notes. Do you have any evaluations as a whole on how Crabtree is doing? Also hearing Banks and Melvin have been impressive. Could have two big young CBs. and Melvin could be a steal.

  2. Joe Says:

    Too early for serious evaluation. Melvin seems to be green, as is expected.

    Joe posted this last night.

  4. Mike J Says:

    As always, thanks for the observations, Joe.

  5. Joe Says:

    No problem.

    Joe, I was at the night practice yesterday. I’m a Freeman supporter and thinks he can make the turn, but was I the only one that noticed when the QB’s were warming up it stemmed like all the other QB’s were throwing the ball with zip and velocity but Free was kinda soft tossing rainbows back over. I don’t think it’s much to be concerned with but a bit offputting for me because I believe practice habits can have a carry-over effect.

    Is Myron playing like the writing is on the wall? Every time a post is written, he’s holding a receiver. Last year, he was a practice phenom.

    Sounds like he is running some holding and interference with the coaches just as well as he’s doing with the receivers. Maybe, this year, they will break free and release him. ha!

    Funny…Rachel had that same smile for me this morning at breakfast…..

  9. Rob Carter Says:

    Big ups Eric Page… TOLEDO!!!!

    My opinion is e same as joes. What does myron Lewis have holding over mark dominik’s head.? He’s been awful.

    @Joe

    I can’t get enough of these lol.

    Thank you

  13. chris Says:

    A lot to like about the secondary. Revis banks Adams and Johnson. Gaitor and Melvin could round out the 5th and 6 spots. Looks like we have a very aggressive secondary. Johnson and Adams are great fits in the slot CBS.

  14. PRBucFan Says:

    I still think LJ is going to be a great player in this league.

    I’ve said it here before, I guess we will see

  15. Couch Fan Says:

    Maybe I missed it but I didnt see a thing about Revis. Did he practice today?

  16. chris Says:

    I know he’s been eased back into the swing of things. He’s healthy, but getting reps here and there. Looks good, but I don’t think he practiced today.

  17. SeanyMac in SC Says:

    Love the notes Joe. Feed me more!

  18. Macabee Says:

    Chris,

    BTW, CB Darrelle Revis is in full pads and working with his position group. Next step for him is to join team periods. Might happen today.

    Oh god, the Benn’d Around…
