    Too few media reports actually break down football as well as Derek does. Does a great job, as does Steve White in real Football Talk. Thank you, and keep up the great job.

    With te defense not in full pads it should be the offense shining bc DBS can’t get as physical with Wrs. It’s poor that our qb play isn’t sharp especially josh.

    However te intensity isn’t going to be there on day 2. Remember the new nfl rules has restrictions on full throttle go practices in TC. I think 2 a days on pads were eliminated but you can have walk throughs and full hitting in one day.

    I think Saturday night will be full telling.

    I will be ecstatic if our pass defense beats our offense…..that will bode very well for us!!!

    I’m more interested of the type of play with pads on…and not just one practice, but the course of camp and pre-season.

    Appreciate the kind words and agree completely on the defense being limited by contact (and the CBA). The coach in me wants to see the intensity in every aspect. I also agree that with pads and more 11 on 11 will come a more clear picture as to what we are going to have this season.

    Regardless of whether there is contact or not, the defense will be ahead of offense at this point. Defense is and always has been more instinctive. There are positions to play, zones or men to cover, gaps to fill, but as a whole an instinctive player can practice instinctively and look incredible. Offense has always been more about timing and being on the “same page” (making the same read). It always takes more time for the offense to get in sync because of these things. I’m glad Banks and the rest of the D is playing instinctively and learning the system. The offense is still at more of a “walk-thru” pace, figuring out what the correct “read” is and getting in sync. Soon they will add the pace and “timing” to it and the offenses will start catching up.

    Thanks for your insight and input Derek.
