Chatter was a constant background chorus as the coaches yelled running commentary towards the players.
After a slow start, all three of the competing quarterbacks found their grooves as they continued to work on the weak side post routes.
After beginning the workout flat, JaMarcus Russell found his touch and deftly placed a few on-the-money tosses. Matt Flynn continued to quietly impress onlookers with his no nonsense approach. Freshman Ryan Perrilloux was processing tips of advice that were given to him by both coaches and players.
Following working out the post routes, the quarterbacks broke from the receivers and went to work with the running backs on draws and counters. The touch of the quarterbacks improved today as they worked on the bubble screens with the fullbacks. Hefty Kevin Steltz looked to have increased his mobility out of the backfield as he danced down the sidelines on one reception.
Meanwhile, the receivers stayed back to improve their routes and techniques. Coach Todd Monken gave the players a brief talk and they began a red zone drill where the receiver used the cornerback to create space for a quick pass.
They seem to improve over the course of the drill. Skyler Green was working particularly hard at this drill as he attempts to become a more prominent member of the offense.
Dwayne Bowe summed up the attitude of the playmakers by announcing, "We getting better today."
The defensive line was also getting better as they were involved in a pop drill. Kyle Williams performed well, prompting defensive line coach Karl Dunbar to howl, "You gotta feel the pop".
Offensive guard Garett Wibel was in a green jersey and Doug Planchard continued to wear shorts and a knee brace.
