BEREA—After a less than stellar morning showing by the quarterbacks, they performed a bit better in the afternoon. Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace seemed to have a tough morning sessions in throwing incomplete passes.
Eric Mangini downplayed Delhomme's morning session.
"I wasn't watching each one of his throws," he said. "Sometimes, I'm watching the defense or the o-line. I'll get a better gauge of how accurate the throws were when I go back and watch the tape, but I didn't walk away from this morning thinking that.
"The ball could be on the ground because it was a dropped ball, that happens sometimes," he said. "Sometimes, it's good defense…I thought the defense did a good job this morning, so I'd like to think that some of the incompletions were due to good defense, as opposed to poor offense."
Delhomme threw a pinpoint pass down the sideline to Mohamed Massaquoi and also made a great throw to Brian Robiskie, who came back to make a nice catch. One of the nicest plays was a catch over the middle by Robiskie who was fully extended to make the grab. Delhomme had two completions to Chansi Stuckey on slants.
On the downside, Delhomme overthrew Robiskie on a deep throw and missed Montario Hardesty down the side line.
Wallace threw two interceptions. He threw one to Coye Francies, who returned it for a touchdown. He later threw an interception to Nick Sorenson.
This and That: Floyd Womack was in at right guard and Tony Pashos was at right tackle with the first unit in 11-on-11 drills…DL Cliff Geathers took exception to some offensive lineman and started swinging in 11-on-11. It was hard to tell who he was going after as he was being restrained by several teammates and several offensive linemen were in the skirmish.
Bike Brigade: DL Shaun Rogers, DL C.J. Mosley, LB Eric Barton, P Dave Zastudil, CB Eric Wright, DB T.J. Ward, WR Jake Allen, DL Martin Tavaseu, DL Keith Grennan and DB Benjamin Burney all did not practice.
