    Tribs Bits And Pieces For Thursday

    Thursday, August 03, 2006 by Sean Jensen
    Going soft

    The team was scheduled to have a second practice in pads. But coach Brad Childress let the players go in shells instead. Is he going soft?

    Mewelde is special

    Backup running back Mewelde Moore is currently the No. 1 punt and kickoff returner, according to special teams coach Paul Ferraro. That's interesting since Koren Robinson went to the Pro Bowl last season, and he told me Wednesday he wanted to do it again. Robinson, though, did field some kickoffs today, along with Troy Williamson.

    Temper, temper

    There was a shoving match earlier in practice. And defensive end Khreem Smith was sent off the field by coach Brad Childress for mixing it up with an offensive lineman.

    To the house

    E.J. Henderson picked off J.T. O'Sullivan and ran down the left sideline for a touchdown of at least 40 yards.

    Feeling Blue

    Rookie safety Greg Blue has been, well, a hit so far in camp. His jarring tackles have impressed his defensive teammates. He just slammed into Richard Owens, who was escorted to the medical trailer with a team doctor.

    Oh, he's returning to the sideline.

    Greenway update

    A reader wondered how he looked so far. He hasn't had a real highlight. But he also hasn't made any glaring mistakes. His technique seems solid, since he's not yelled at a lot by his position coach.

    But his athleticism is very evident.

    Mosley rises

    During nine-on-seven drills, C.J. Mosley lined up next to Kevin Williams with the starting defense. But don't read too much into it yet.

    By the way, fans are out in the hundreds. They're lucky. The weather is perfect!

    Does EJ's pick signal that he is FINALLY starting to get the hang of covering TEs???

    I'm glad that Mosley's doin well. I was disappointed when I saw that Kolodziej took Pat's place. Considering how well Mosley played last year when called upon as a rookie, I was sure he'd be a lock as the primary backup at DT.

    And it doesn't surprise me that Moore is taking kickoff and punt returns. Now that Robinson is our go-to receiver, I don't really want him to be returning kicks - that's just an injury waiting to happen. It's not really all that necessary for the extra 3-4 yards per return we'd get.

    Last year Burleson got replaced as the punt returner for the same reason. I hope they do it again this year.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    That works for me, sounds like he is studying his playbook and listening to any instructions from the coaching staff. If he gets the basics under his belt so that they become second nature then it will allow his instincts to come into play.
