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.

  • "Natural runner" is pretty loaded term. Better "athlete" can be debated as well.

  • @TheSveed I'm sure, but 7 replacements is crazy. They don't do that many in wet/cold climates. Must be reason they are considering turf.

  • What is the deal with this field? 7 planned replacements & considering fake turf next year. In NorCal. Absurd. https://t.co/04LF6uUfj9
