Some observations from today...
Good stuff rkarp, firsthand accounts are usually the best. I like the no numbers, it makes accountability and team work more personal, players should have to learn each others name.
Ras only ever needed to stay healthy, the talent was evident, it would be a miracle at this point for him to become an every down player, but maybe could if all he ever was is unlucky. I'd like to see him make it.
Sudfeld is young, tall, can run and catch, he needs to get stronger but with Brady throwing to him could become an instant star as a receiver.
Ballard may very well be slow moving due to injury but remember he wasn't very fast to begin with, he's a big guy, in the Kyle Brady mold, an extra O Lineman. He is particularly good in that while not fast, he's agile and has really soft hands, so he's solid around the goalline. I hope he is at full strength this year, there will be some battles at tightend in camp.
Washington and Vereen are something else to watch, if Vereen was a mirage late last season or can't stay healthy, Leon is still a baller as a third down back.
Mallett may still go down as the best QB in his class, lets enjoy Brady while we have him but the future is bright.
The pictures of Solder are pretty obvious, he looks substantially larger in the upper body than last year, and always keep an eye out for 61, who always is big though they list him as having lost weight. Our O Line is a strength again coached by Scar.
I can't wait for the season to start.
