As it should be at WR...the ones that catch the football on a consistent basis should be the ones to start.

I think they know the roster 6 already, just seeing what they can do with packages. It’s crazy to think about how different a defense has to play depending on what combination of 3-4 WR’s trot out.

 

 

I wouldn’t hate a

 

Dawkins - Spain- Morse - Ford - Nke

 

Starting line

I wonder if this is partly due to the defense playing against him everyday

Allen might just be a nice guy who likes to sign autographs as compared to a great QB

All because he has a couple bad sessions at practice? Nice leap to the negative

I believe we have officially reached the point where these guys are sick of training camp.

Exactly. That, and Allen is a 2nd year going against what is shaping up to be one of the most dominant D’s our franchise has seen in over a generation! All of the lessons he learns now, will pay off in spades for the regular season, imho.

Its bound to happen.  Some people are definitely "What have you done for me lately " type of people.

THIS ^^^

 

PLUS - There is a pre-season game on Thursday. I bet we don't see a whole lot of our #1s getting much field time.

 

Many of these changes and substitutes are likely preparation for Thursday.

I could be wrong, but it seemed like there were more positive reports about JA the first few days of camp...and he seems to have had several negative reports the last few days- including a few reports saying they were his worse practices to date...I haven’t been to camp, but just based on the reports.

I was at camp today. I don't go most years, so being there gave me a new perspective on training camp reports. I guess the narrative of the beat reporters was that Allen was off today. I didn't feel that way at all. Not that he was consistently on fire or anything and he started off slow, but by the time final team drills rolled around he was more than fine.

 

Just as an example, in one 11-on-11 drill, Allen threw a beautiful dime about 35 yards down field to John Brown in very tight coverage running a post to the sideline. It was really a spectacular throw and catch. I didn't see any of the usual reporters on Twitter mention that throw, which I thought was weird.

 

Another example - there was a lot of negativity on Twitter around a pick that Allen threw to Poyer where he supposedly underthrown McKenzie. Unless I was seeing things the defense jumped Offside and Allen was just throwing it up for grabs. I clearly saw a d-lineman jump before the snap on a hard count. After Poyer intercepted the ball Allen still made a little "move the chains" motion with his arm. I check Twitter and the beat reporters are talking about an underthrown interception. Weird.

 

In the final 2 team drills Allen was mostly throwing short passes and I thought he looked very sharp on those. I actually don't remember a single short pass that he was off target on. That was one of his weaknesses last year so I was happy to see that. Again, I didn't see anyone on Twitter talking about those drills at all. Beasley is going to be a stud in this offense. He catches everything.

 

And being at camp gave me a new level of disrespect for tracking completion percentage at practices. The offense isn't getting in any kind of rhythm, they're running around to different drills that cover different game situations. At one point Allen and Barkley were alternating reps with the 1st team offense. Thad Brown might just be more astute than me, but tracking completion percentage for that drill is nonsense.

 

Anyways I'm no expert at watching football drills but I was surprised by how different my perceptions were.

 

A few other notes:

-I didn't see Zay Jones at all after the 1-on-1s. I think he was standing on the sideline for most of the team drills. If he was ever playing in the drills, I didn't see him make any plays.

-Barkley looked sharp with the 2nd team. I feel very comfortable with him as the backup.

-I thought Tyree Jackson showed some good signs today. Clearly a work in progress but he made some nice short throws. He had a brutal interception early on but nothing else that was shockingly bad.

-The wide receiver combos are all over the place. After Beasley and Brown I couldn't tell you who #3 is. I saw Roberts get a bunch of reps, but Phillips did as well. Both had a few nice plays with the 1st team offense.

-You don't need to see 91 on his jersey to pick out Ed Oliver. The guy is so quick off the snap. He appears to be a full time starter at this point, with Phillips getting rotated in a fair amount.

Context. What a concept!
