    Boller was clueless again.

    j/k...today's practice was not open to the media.

    Troy Smith has the tools but he looked lost at times. He throws a nice pass and squares up well to throw accurately on the run. His release point is high and he plays up on his toes which helps to compensate for his relatively short stature 6'0 1/2". My guess is that if you measured the distance from the ground of Smith's release point, it might be about the same as the significantly taller side armed delivery of Vince Young.

    The coaches are throwing a ton of new terminology at the players right now and as a result, the mental processing slows down their playing speed and reaction time, particularly for quarterbacks.

    Thanks for the report, Tony. Great read. My favourite part - Bart Scott to Heap after being beaten to the ball "You made that route up!"

    Guys keep this in mind.

    I wasn't there. But I've been to these things before. And the problem is...they're really pretty dull practice sessions, and writers HAVE to write something...and everyone sees something different.

    I'm not even kidding. It wouldn't shock me if one day Tony (merely an example) writes about how Kyle Boller looked sharp on most of his passes on the same day that Preston or Aaron Wilson said he looked incompetent. Because, depending on which snap you choose, you're right, no matter what.

    Keep that in mind. You could go to one of these OTAs and literally choose ANYTHING to write about. But it's an OTA. And everyone is going to see everything differently (for the most part...obviously if Kyle or Steve is like 1-20 in throwing drills, it's going to be apparent).

    I could write a story (if I was a writer, that is)about how sharp McNair looked on the same day Tony writes about how he looked off. Neither one of us would be wrong.

    I just wanted to defuse another Boller-bashing episode. The guy isn’t my #1 QB in the ‘verse but why do some folk feel the need to pummel the kid every chance they get?


    Yeah, more notes on practice?

    New terminology, eh? Think it is clues of those possible changes to our O? Younger more athletic line, slashing back… could be a whole new O. Tell me more!

    That's all I'm saying. I gladly read these reports, but anyone can see anything on a given practice. i was suprised when I was at last year's training camp what mediocre plays by McNair would get the crowd going and by what smaller plays might make the crowd boo boller. Everyone sees it different. We're only human, and thats including writers in the media.
