    Excited for the first padded practice tomorrow. While the first pre-season game comes too quick, the first time hearing the pads pop is coming a little too slow for my taste. I support the player safety initiatives, and trusting that this is, in fact, something that is good for player health, I grudgingly support the reduction of full contact practices, but the key word is grudgingly.

    Strong day today by Colquhoun, who dropped a sure pick, but was well positioned and around the ball a lot. The work he's put in, training through the off-season in Edm and working on core and flexibility, Should have him better prepared to stay on the field, and from the early returns, he could be poised for a break-through season.

    Don Unamba is a lot of fun to watch. He absolutely flies around out there and I am excited for the SAM position to return to being one of strength, as it was with Otha Foster and then Kenny Ladler. Can't miss the leadership being brought and the respect he commands. As 56Parkies points out, with his dreadlocks covering part of his number, it's not so much a '0' as it is a 'U'.

    I heard some stories today that shone a very positive light on Larry Dean and his character. Within an hour of signing with the Esks he made efforts to reach out to some key people and show a ton of respect. It costs us so little to do these things, and can me so much. My buddy and I tried to watch a recorded Esks/RedBlacks game from last year this evening, and it's a little too painful to do that with all the departures, but Dean's arrival, and the concept of turning over part of the leadership of the room to him, really eases the blow.

    One guy I want to watch closer is Darius Jackson, a fairly late addition to the D-line, but a guy that has seemed to make an impression on his position group with some plays he's made in drills. Too soon to make any predictions, but he has landed on my radar.

    Session was cut a little short today for on-field stuff, and there was time allotted for work in the endzone, with rotation of guys through three stations focusing on stretching, core, flexibility and strength. Had a chance to talk to a few coaches and players, and while there's an understanding that building culture and chemistry is not done overnight, there is a lot of good work starting to happen.

    Can't recall if I mentioned it earlier, but Coach Gibson tore his quad muscle in the week prior to camp and has been in a full leg cast through the first bit. Tough son-of-a-gun to be out there and fighting through it.

    At the end of the on-field sessions, the QBs were throwing at the crossbar, as is often the case. What is not so frequent is three of them hitting it from about 40 yds out.
    outstanding work as usual GWN, have you noticed Sorenson at all?

Prior three seasons in Ottawa, he averaged over 15 ypc, and last year was down around 11, but he still put up his 4th straight 1000 yd season. I think, with him, it is about role as much as anything. I expect that the Maas offensive system will see plenty of yards to go around, and with no major injuries and at 30 yrs old, I don't expect a big slow down.
    If I recall correctly he is in the neighborhood of D Walk moneywise (is he the second highest paid receiver in the league?) so in my mind he has a lot to prove.

    Does anyone have any observations on Tevaun Smith so far?

    I am really excited to see what he can bring to the team this year.

    I haven't physically been in the Stadium for 3 years. Have they now covered more of the upper bowl?

    That looks the same as when they first started tarping as I was in the seats just above the second opening to the concourse (in section upper N)

    I hope they make Tucker and AJ available to the media one of these days.

    Further down the depth chart, so limited reps. Hasn't stood out yet to me. Darius Jackson is one of the newcomers that has turned my head a few times.

    Nice speed, and seems relatively polished, but still seems to be thinking rather than fully reacting. I'm confident that he'll continue to grow in the system over the coming weeks, as this is the first time back in Canadian rules in some time, equal ground to the American receivers, but without the typical advantage of a Cdn receiver on the mental side of the game. He does have experience in learning an NFL level Playbook, so I am confident in his ability to adjust. When asking some folks in the organization who to watch, his name always seems to come up.

    ------

    Today was the first padded practice (Max of 5 in new CBA I believe), and they put them on for the second half. As one would expect, it got more physical and, as a result, tempers flared. Both Colin Kelley and Godfrey Onyeka were ejected from the practice after escalating to punches. Seemed to me that Onyeka was more of a 3rd man in, and did not get the best of things. Maas simply gave the "you're out" signal with his thumb, and both were escorted off, so it had obviously been warned in advance. At the end of the session, when he was breaking the team down, could tell part of the messaging was that we can't take those penalties in a game as you're leaving your team shorthanded. CJ Gable and Money Hunter had some words in the first half (prior to pads) as Gable seemed to take offence to some contact.

    New guy on my radar was Brian Walker at DB - a pick-6 (Kilgore) and a few nice break-up, but got some coaching correction later on. A guy I was already watching, Tyquwan Glass, had ascended the depth chart and was playing field CB ahead of McKnight today with the 1's. Keep in mind, AJ Orange, the projected starter, is still out. Glass was killing it on 1-on-1 ST drills as well, both on cover (pursuit) and return (blocking). These drills also saw 2019 draft pick, Hutter, stand out to me a bit, and also Don Unamba.

    Logan Kilgore and Danny O'Brien were rotating a bit with the 2's, not a full on flip of the position, but an indication that Kilgore is doing some things right. He did have an interception today, and O'Brien did hit Elliott with a beautiful 45 yd dime down the sidelines, but seems like we have a legit competition. Both have done some holding on FGs at times.

    It is absolutely amazing to watch SirV work in 1-on-1 drills. While I'm not an expert on footwork, etc, he seems continually balanced, in position and never reaching or having to extend too much. Even going up against Bazzie and Boateng it seems easy - and that should be a steel sharpens steel thing over the season.

    On the other end of the scale, unfortunately, Asare got torched on back to back snaps by Moore and Mackie on moves that were just pure technique moves. JS Roy got worked pretty hard by Almondo on one bull rush, but c'mon, it's Mondo. I think Mike Moore continues to be seen as a competitor for the DT role and not an incumbent, and I think it may be a blind spot for many of us. He is better than we think.

    A few nicked up guys during the sessions today. It appeared that Colquhoun tweaked something in his back/hip and was pulled late in the session, with Hoover moving to weak-side CB and Beaulieu coming in at Safety. Didn't appear to be serious. Marshall and Quarrels were also limping at times late in the session.

    One more full session tomorrow, then a light session on Friday (40 min on field) and a walk-through Saturday before the game on Sunday. Expectation is that 4 QBs will see the field, with Harris likely just playing a few series.

    Jimmy Morrissey vs. DT Kyle Cerge-Henderson

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    bbatko@post-gazette.com

    Pitt center Jimmy Morrissey isn’t like Panthers tight end coach Tim Salem, who on Tuesday said he’s barely slept since Saturday night’s loss to Penn State.

    “I need sleep,” Morrissey said with a laugh after practice Wednesday, “or I can’t function.”

    He might need even more than usual Friday night given the 6-foot-1, 298-pound test that awaits him Saturday afternoon at Heinz Field. Georgia Tech senior nose guard Kyle Cerge-Henderson is close enough to three bills to stand out on tape, and on top of that size, he’s coming off a game with six tackles, three for loss and two sacks at South Florida.






    “He’s a beast inside. He’s a space-eater in there,” Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi said Thursday. “He does a good job. He’s been active. We’ll have to attack him, and it’ll be a challenge.”


    Indeed, much of the talk around Pitt-Georgia Tech each season in their annual ACC Coastal meeting is how Narduzzi’s Panthers will stop — or at least try to contain — Paul Johnson’s hallowed triple-option offense.

    But Pitt’s offense and Georgia Tech’s defense will take to Heinz Field, too, and that battle will start right at the tip of the ball on each snap as Morrissey gets it to quarterback Kenny Pickett, then needs to address No. 54 directly in his way.

    “He’s a big dude,” Morrissey said. “Probably the heaviest D-lineman I’ll go against this season. But I’m ready for it. I enjoy ‘odd’ defenses. I got a guy over me the whole time.”






    That “odd” defense is Georgia Tech’s new 3-4 scheme, implemented by first-year defensive coordinator Nate Woody, who came from the same post at Appalachian State.

    Stylistically, it’s been a great fit so far for the massive Cerge-Henderson, who’s surging to the ball now that he gets to be a nose tackle in a three-man front. Cerge-Henderson has been a part-time starter in years past, but last weekend’s loss at USF was a career game for a guy who had just five tackles all of last season. And he impacted plenty of plays that weren’t reflected in the box score, either.

    “He makes it tough for that center to get off, if that center wants to get off to the second level,” Morrissey said. “He’s a good player. I think the 3-4 definitely helped him as an adjustment. He’s definitely a nose guard.”

    Sure, Cerge-Henderson has some playmakers behind him, such as three-year starting inside linebacker Brant Mitchell — “he’s Dick Butkus back there, No. 51,” Salem joked — and overall, the Yellow Jackets (1-1) returned five starters on defense.

    Jackson even stands out in the highlight package, as he destroyed andrew Peterson at the 18 second mark.

    I would be willing to bet that every team has the same things going on right now. Teams are cautious with the vets and training camps almost always bring animosity.

    But how much of that animosity do you allow? I remember that TC last year was especially chippy, and we wound up with an undisciplined penalty-fest to start the season.

    Agreed, seems like Maas is a little quicker to kick guys out than he was in the past. Lets hope he learned from last season as the penalties got considerably better as the year went.

    At least no one has gone after anyone with a shovel yet this year.

    A lot of that falls back on the coaching staff. They create the culture they want from day 1 and it builds. So if the coach was an undisciplined hothead, the team usually takes on his demeanor if he allows it to happen.

    We appear to be looking for even more depth at receiver.

    Wouldn't be an Eskimos camp without some kind of stupid injury run.

    An ACL or an Achilles is gonna be next...

    Oh wow, what a shocker. Colquhoun needs a day off for something. It's been what 3 days.

    Question about Saturday.

    Is it open to the public? Since it's a walk through I'm not sure how that works. I assume it is since it's on the training camp schedule.

    Run the Ball up the gut around the horn it does not matter. We run we win what is so difficult to understand.
