    Some notes

    - Trying to find a way to use Snoddy

    - Jeune could play if needed

    - Isaiah wants to play..will be sooner rather than later

    - Summers and Dennis will start at WR...Smelter is in red at practice but should be a go this week.

    - Justin Thomas is banged up but should be back for Saturday

    - Said we had a good camp

    - Joe and McNair only serious injuries coming out of camp...McNair should be back for Duke.

    Can't wait to see Sims on two good legs!!! How do you give enough snaps to satify Sims, Laskey and Snoddy? We should never, and I mean never, have a tired B back in the game. Fresh legs, BABY!

    Great to hear about Sims. We really missed the great production Dwyer gave us from the B-back position.

    Yeah, it's an interesting comment after the, "He needed to," regarding Sims' good 1st scrimmage. I think that with the number of plays we run involving the B-Back, getting his carries won't be a big problem, and I agree about fresh legs.

    Also, when you consider that our D is going to be giving us 3+ more possessions a game, we're going to need the depth!

    With the WR issues (depth/discipline), I'd kinda like to see B.J. Bostic get snaps there. I know he is a valuable AB with probably the best hands at that position, but his body type, speed, and hands remind me of Autry last year. I'm not trying to say he should switch positions. I'm just trying to keep football talk going!!

    I've always thought way don't they cross train some of the ABacks into WR or Bback positions and vice versa.
    Hill, Zenon, & Bostic could all be WR's
    Andrew & Days could be Bbacks & WR's
    and of course Perkins could play Bback.

    Honestly I don't really like the position titles ABack & Bback, it makes the offense sound even more gimmicky. Especially considering we don't use a TE.

    It's all in what you're used to. Some may think Fullback, Halfback and Quarterback are strange considering where you see them in today's offense. Shouldn't the fullback be all the way back and the half back be only half way back? Who cares what you call them.

    That wasn't intended to come across judgmental, I just meant that I don't care what they call the positions, I don't think it matters.
