Polamalu was obviously a little tired and was less than pleased with his practice.
He lined up at strong safety with the second team defense with Chris
Hope moving back over to free safety and Erik Totten moving down to
the third team free safety spot.
Polamalu did recover a fumble in the 7-on-7 drills after Chris Hope
forced a Khory Ivy fumble.
Other than that, it was a pretty uneventful practice.
Here are some random observations:
Ike Taylor looks very lean, even in pads. I don't know what that means
about his play, though.
Hines Ward looks like the best player on the team, offense or defense,
every time he steps on the field.
At this point, Chidi Iwuoma would beat out Hank Poteat for the fourth
corner spot, with Taylor as the fifth.
Watch Nashville Dyer, however. He
could be someone they try to stash on the practice squad.
Totten is too small and probably not as fast as he needs to be, but he's
a footballl player.
Lee Mays has really been impressive.
The coaching staff continues to get on Brett Keisel for getting his pads
too high. It makes him very blockable.
