Mandatory Mini-Camp Day 2 Recap

I came down with the Derrick Burgess flu (Chipotle), so I missed the afternoon practice. Also, because I was sick, I’m not going to do a full rundown of the morning practice.

Instead, I’ll post some links. I’ll continue to post on Twitter @Raidersblog and do recaps on the blog.

Thankfully it’s not as uncomfortable as the story about Frantz Joseph and his mother.

Phil Barber - Garcia article

DHB had a tough practice so tomorrow will be important to see how he bounces back. Hopefully being held out of the evening practice was a precaution and that he will be fine.

Russell has been streaky. Inconsistent might be another word, but so far no one seems to be worried.

I like the calmer atmosphere of this coaching staff as opposed to others. It isn’t like Art Shell, who forbade talking or Kiffin who was constantly running his mouth in camp. Cable is even-keeled, calm, cool, collected, confident. Everything you want in a coach if you are a player.

Hopefully two days and four practices will be enough learning to see some improvement on Sunday. It will take time, I believe Cable wanted to get this new group of players together early and that is why he had the mandatory mini-camp be the first one. He wanted the vets to get assimilated with the new guys. He also might be hoping to get the vets to stay around for voluntary activities.
