Preseason knee-jerks!

Based on what I’ve seen so far in practices and one preseason game, this could be one of the top defenses in the NFC. Here’s why: CB Terence Newman is on the verge of becoming an All-Pro player and the…

Your Uncle Marvin Rector Report!!!

Great leaping catch on the sideline by Jamaica Rector. I actually think Sam Hurd is causing some of these other bubble players to take it to another level. Nice plays by Copper, Hurd, Rector, etc. this evening. Oh, and…

Blogged artery…

Please accept my sincere apology for this afternoon’s technical woes. The blog chip that my editor had surgically implanted in my frontal lobe short-circuited, but it’s back up and running now. We’re about 30 minutes away from this afternoon’s…

Mosley Report continues…

Special thanks to Todd Archer, who is cranking out his own report as we speak. After making fun of me for losing my first report, the Boston native quickly jumped in. Let’s now continue with this afternoon’s report … Todd’s…

Since Mosley is technologically challenged …

&#8226 You don’t want to say Bill Parcells was playing for the cameras, but with NFL Films in town and the coach wearing a mic, he did seem a little – let’s see – more vocal than in some other…

More exciting controlled scrimmage nuggets!!!

&#8226 I know it’s early, but CB Terence Newman is on the verge of becoming a special player. He rarely gets beat and makes plays against the run. WR Terrance Copper looked a little woozy after Newman raced up and…

Scrimmage stuff

Greg Ellis had the first sack and Terence Newman made a nifty play, tipping a Drew Bledsoe pass away on the first series. Chris Canty was credited with a sack and had a good hit on Julius Jones. On Tony…

Running game is OK

Julius Jones and and Marion Barber had some decent runs during the scrimmage. But in a key reserve running back battle, Tyson Thompson and Keylon Kincade each had one dropped pass. When Kincade dropped his pass, Parcells, who I think…

Gurode has edge at center

• Andre Gurode has seized control of the first-string center job. Gurode’s better against a 3-4 scheme. Al Johnson has more success against a 4-3. Take a peek at the schedule and you’ll see that it’s much heavier on 4-3…

11-on-11 stuff

My favorite part of practice is the 11-on-11 stuff, which occurred at the back end of the evening practice. As the offense came on the field for the session, the defense stayed on the sideline. Bill Parcells barked: “Come on…

Practice stuff

Terence Newman is No. 1 on the depth chart for punt returns. But, Newman, Skyler Green and Jamaica Rector all practice punt returns after practice on Monday. With the team in shells, the running game was better in the evening…
