So I went down to camp today with 2 of my boys and needless to say it was packed. When we first got there we were in the bleachers on the far south side of the facility but then my 7 year old started getting restless mainly because it was very hard for him to see over the crowd. We decided to get up, get a drink and walk around a little bit. We ended up going behind the bleachers to get our drink and then we saw a group of players heading towards the 2nd field and decided to follow them. The players going that way were the LB's, the RB's and some special team players as well. The RB's and LB's ended up going against each other man on man in a pass rush (for the LB's) and pass block (for the RB's) drill and it was pretty sweat because we were right there to watch it while pretty much everyone else was paying attention to the main field.
Here's my two main observations. 1. Vontaze Burfict is a bada$$ but kind of a Di%#$% and I can see why he gets under some peoples skin. Having said that, I love the ATTITUDE he brings to our team! He was definitely a little mouthy (or as I like to say a little "passionate":) during the drill, especially when he put the law firm on his a$$, which was awesome by the way. 2. Orson Charles got dominated twice in a row and pulled a Joey Votto by dropping a very loud f-bomb because he was obviously frustrated with himself. It was great to see the competitiveness coming out in him as well as the coaching he was given. He was lunging at the LB's and not keeping his hands inside, which would have resulted in an obvious holding penalty. Of course Burfict wasn't even going against but he had no problem clowning him by pretending to pull out a flag like ref would when he clearly held one of the other LB's. My take away was Orson Charles wants to succeed very badly at H-Back and appears to be as competitive as anyone on this team. It was great to see him go from being dominated on the back field during individual drills to being totally dominate on the main field during the Oklahoma drill. Anyways those were pretty much my two "back page" observations I wanted to share from today
