Re: 2014 Saints Training Camp

From the morning practice:

Kenny is legit one of the funniest players to watch. Dude decked Joe Morgan (I think Joe slipped a little too) on a reverse, and straight knocked down a RB (cant remember who) on another play, while always giving guys credit. Byrd and Kenny is going to be so much fun to watch.

Champ had a INT on a McCown ball. Very nice play. You can tell the DB's with their pads on are more physical. Pierre took some reps, spin moves and all.

Brandon Cooks on a slip screen when he was in the slot was amazing. He literally went through the hole and went untouched 40+ yards to the endzone.

Main person I saw get yelled at was Brian Dixon, not knowing exactly where to line up as a gunner for punt.

Strozier was getting more and more reps, to be honest I cant recall Ingram getting many at all? Maybe 5?

Lorig and Hill was getting reps at LS, to backup Justin.

Cooks also looks to be the guy for KR and PR, with Morgan/Meachem going to be his backup.

Corey White looked good with a few pass breakups.

One of the best guys is Zach Strief when it comes to fan interactions. Stayed over 30 minutes later signing, chatting with everyone, thanking people for being there. Even did a duck face photo with a girl. I am so glad we re-signed him.

Saw some other comments on this one. Several attendees said it looked like he was at top speed on his 2nd step.

Oh man, Brandin Cooks is gonna wreak so much havoc on defenses! Teams can put their best CB on Graham if they want but Colston, Stills, Cooks, etc. are gonna really test secondaries.

Teams will almost be forced to put a safety on Graham; no way you can dedicate a corner when you have Stills/Cooks/Colston on the field...

Brandin Cooks dazzles at New Orleans Saints camp - NFL.com

Here is a link to footage of that Cooks play. The speed at which his legs move...

Today I am going to a "Picnic with the Saints", where we get to grab autos and pictures, and have hamburgers, hot dogs, watermelon, cookies, and drinks for $10
Well Virginia isn't exactly Saints country. I understand the reason for getting out of La in July and August, but you can't expect Saints fans to travel several states away for a month just to watch practice. I wish I could, but that just isn't a possibility. I'm sure the players understand. It's a trade off, they have to do what benefits the team in quest for wins.

Re: 2014 Saints Training Camp

I just hate going there, seeing Falcons and Panthers (and Calvin Johnson and other sports) jerseys, hearing people say "The Saints arent my favorite team, but they are here"

And the autography ebay sellers. My goodness its crazy.

Hmm, I don't know ZS52. I'm on the fence with this one. Not sure if I want our valued commodity covering punts or kick offs. Let Morgan/Cadet and player unknown handle special teams duties.
