2008 Camp Day 1

Camp is finally here. I guess there were a lot of positives today, because even Ol’ McDonald was upbeat. I guess when there is hardly anything negative to report, its tough to be negative, even for middle-aged sports reporters.

-Javon Walker doesn’t have any significant injuries and is in fact in better shape than he was during mini-camp when Kiffin said he wished Walker was in better shape. I find this to be a good thing because of the NFL Conduct Policy enforcement the media has been too quick to judge, when in fact Walker was just a victim. He could have been smarter, but we all make mistakes.

- Kelly actually talked to the media because he was told he had to. I like that he is willing to admit that he has no personal vendetta against the media, simply put he just likes to got to work and go home. I respect his finally coming out and talking to the media, even though he doesn’t really like to. I hope the media plays it cool with Kelly, because he still could change his mind and its nice to hear your $50 million players talk.

- Russell looked sharp

- McFadden looked as fast as advertised

- Asomugha cares more about winning than money, like I expected.

- Kiffin is not un-naturally forcing himself to be crazy enthusiastic this camp.

I feel really good about the season and opening camp was no exception. Even Turd Sands passed the conditioning test. That is almost as rare as Bill Belicheat passing a lie detector test.

  • The saying that the NFL is a "what have you done for me lately" league is very, very true.

  • Maybe. Hard to say. Didn't struggle in all areas equally. RT @MO_RaiderFan: his injury may have been more of a problem than we know

  • Flashback to 2013 and could make a case Wisniewski was better than Hudson.

  • I don't know what happened last year, but Wisniewski was not very good. A year ago I couldn't imagine them letting him go.
