Vin’s TC Report…08.04.07

Today was a team scrimmage with full pads. Though the starting offensive and defensive units didn’t receive too much contact, the 2nd and 3rd stringers went at it.

– The practice began with Andy Lee and Ken Parrish working on punts, with Nate Clements, Taylor Jacobs, Brandon Williams, and Arnaz Battle returning. Andy Lee looked like the more consistent punter and had some nice booms. Ken Parrish looked better than the last time I witnessed him (when his punt hit a woman in the stands), but Andy Lee has the punt battle locked up.

– Nate Clements again muffed some punts. He maybe an extraordinary CB, but thus far his kick punt returning skills haven’t looked too great as he seems to have a problem holding on to the football.

– The team also practiced kickoffs, with Maurice Hicks and Michael Robinson back to return the kicks. Vernon Davis was on the return team blocking,and he looked very physical. On one occassion, Maurice Hicks had a nice return out to about the 40 yard line.

– The team briefly worked on some pass routes before scrimmaging. All of the WRs looked good, making nice, routine catches. Vernon Davis; however, dropped his which drew some jeers from the crowd.

– As the scrimmage began, the first team offense went against the second string defense. One of the standouts during this period was LB Jay Moore. He was constantly getting pressure on many of the plays, especially from the outside. He nearly sacked Alex Smith on one occassion, instead forcing Alex Smith to flush out and throw an errant pass. Then on another play, Alex Smith’s pass was batted at the line of scrimmage and as it fell to the ground Jay Moore dove and made an INT, showing off his athleticism.

– Vernon Davis was featured a lot in the first string’s offense. He made two very nice plays. On one play, he was wide open in the middle of the field for a first down. On the second play, Alex Smith threw to the right of the field and Vernon Davis leapt up over about 3 defenders near him to make a nice catch. He then lifted his hands in the air to pose for the audience, drawing cheers.

– However, the starting offense could not get into the endzone against the second string defense in the first round of the scrimmage. They got to about the 5 yard line and then the drive stalled on 4th down. As the offense came off the field, there was some sort of altercation/jawing between Vernon Davis and Larry Allen. Vernon Davis had to be held back by about 5 teammates, and then BY, Mike Singletary and a couple other guys went up to talk to him to the far end of the field. He seemed heated about something and BY and company were trying to calm him down for a few minutes. It was a nice, intense showing. Nothing too serious, as VD came back to the sideline after a few minutes and seemed calm again.

– Then, the 1st string defense went against the 2nd string offense. The 2nd string offense seemed to be moving the ball very well. On one play, Trent Dilfer hit Brandon Williams along the sideline for a big gain. As Williams caught the pass, he was hammered by Michael Lewis and spun to the ground. But he got back up and signaled “first down” drawing cheers from the crowd.

– However, any progress the 2nd string offense made was halted when Dilfer threw a deep pass into the end zone. Nate Clements leapt up and made a nice INT in traffic to end the drive. He was pumped up, jumping around and getting cheered by fans.

– After that, the 2nd string O had no chance. On one play, Trent Dilfer rolled out to the left and found himself being chased by Ronald Fields from the backside (with GREAT speed may I add…for a big guy) and Manny Lawson coming in from the front. Dilfer just threw the ball out of bounds. Then, on the very next play, both Brandon Moore and Tully Banta Cain sacked Dilfer.

– During the offensive plays, Maurice Hicks looked like the best and most experienced RB out on the field. Robinson was good for short yardage, and Clayton seemed to look okay but danced around a bit into of just hitting the hole on one occassion. Hicks looked quick, and ran outside of the tackle very well, displaying his speed.

– But there was a scare with Hicks during special teams drills, as after a play where he was covering a punt, Hicks got up slowly off of the ground. Trainers worked on him but he was back on the next series during the team scrimmage, so he should be alright.

– Tully Banta Cain continued what has been a really solid camp for himself. He looked very quick during pass rushing, putting a spin move on Duckett to get to the QB. Brandon Moore also looked good, closing in on runs.

– Hannibal Navies also flew around all over the field when the 3rd string offense played the 3rd string defense. He was really looking fast and covering lanes and getting to the ball all day long.

– Derek Smith was stood up by Billy Bajema while trying to get to Maurice Hicks on one occassion. On the next play, Derek Smith made a tackle on a pass play……10 yards down the field.

– Patrick Willis looked fast out there. He played a lot on the 2nd string defense, but also got many reps with the 1st stringers.

– One one play, the 49ers had Vernon Davis and an RB in to block while Smith stood in the shotgun. As a defender came in to rush Smith, you could hear the crack of the pads as VD made the block to stand him up.

– On another play, Keith Lewis tried to come in on a blitz. He was stood up and thrown to the ground by Larry Allen. Jokingly, Lewis got back up and tried to climb on Allen’s back. The crowd laughed, as did the referees.

– The 1st string offense got one more crack against the 2nd string defense. This time, they were able to drive down the field, with Alex Smith connecting with Darrell Jackson on two or three passes, one of which was a nice diving catch in the middle of the field. Michael Robinson then punched it in.

– The 1st string O then practiced redzone offense, where Alex Smith hit Bryan Gilmore for a 20 yard TD pass in the back of the end zone. He then found Vernon Davis in the back of the end zone for another TD. Vernon Davis posed and then threw the ball into the stands to a fan. Some 49ers staff took the ball back from the fan, but due to the numerous boos by the other fans in attendance, the staff member gave back the ball to the fan.

– Jonas Jennings did not participate in the team scrimmage.

– Manny Lawson had a nice INT which he returned for a TD against QB Shaun Hill.

– Kwame Harris had a false start penalty which cost the 1st stringers 5 yards.

– There were several fumbled snaps between the center and QB when the 3rd string offense was on the field.

– CJ Brewer made a nice catch, twisting catch in the back of the end zone. Jason Hill made several nice grabs as well. Luke Getsy could not find Marcus Maxwell much at all. All of Getsy’s throws to Maxwell were off.

– Arnaz Battle dropped a TD during redzone drills against the 2nd string D. But otherwise, he had a very solid day.

  1. It’s to bad Maxwell will be on the practice squad again after the season he had in NFL Europa.

  2. I keep saying its up to our offense this season!!!if we cant keep the offense on the field.Our defense is going to be over worked and be worn out.And is J.Jennings injured”AGAIN”.Might as well start Staley at left tackle and let him get used to the position since Jennings is rarely on the football field with injuries and let Adam Snyder be the right tackle since Kwame Harris cant pass block that well.If gore dont score, We dont score and A.Smith with one touchdown a game this season again wont cut it.

  3. Zack, i agree especially with the o-line, i know it seems we have depth and i know its not terrible right now but i am a bit worried. Because with glass jaw jennings out there getting hang nails everyday really our line is going to look like this… Staley, Allen,Hietmann,Bass/smiley,synder.. well the problem is if we dont have allen harris or smiley next year what the hell are we going to do?? come 2008 we better start looking for depth all over again and possibly another starter cuz our line is going to be staley, Blank, hietmann, bass, synder with no one left!!!

  4. I am glad that other people also see the importance of o line and that it is hands down…our BIGGEST NEED at the end of the season. Allen IS going to retire (I wish he would play one more year, but I am a realist), we aren’t going to re-sign Harris (God willing), and Smiley is going to get a FAT contract if we do re-sign him and it is sounding like we might not according to Big M. We would be fools to go after anything besides an o lineman or a d lineman with our first pick next draft. However, in the meantime, enjoy our current o line while we have them.

  5. Ciao I’m an italian guy who loves the american football…I grew up watching 49ers and defending this sport against my stupid friends who watch only soccer! I hope 49ers gonna go win next season! Bye Bye from Italy

  6. So what do you all think about Larry Allen and Vernon Davis getting into a fight in the middle of practice. According to Matt Maiocco’s website this happened yesterday and Larry Allen had to straighten out Vernon Davis because he was complaining about not getting the pass thrown his way. Vernon Davis, sadly, could be an unsettling force on this team if he is going to keep up this type of attitude. He has talent, but he has no business getting into it with Larry Allen…..especially since Larry Allen would dominate him in a fight.

  7. why even have nate practise returning punts, we are not going to use him during the eseason so let someone else practise

  8. good read….some of you might have already read it, but it gives you some indication of where our team is and what is going on….

  9. Ryan, can you get another link. It is not working for me anyways!

You at least got to produce some good numbers before you talk shit and i dont mean paycheck numbers eather.And i also hope that Staley starts some where on the line this season(over harris at least).I also remember that with Jose Cortez in dallas too.lmao!And who is going to kickoff this season?I heard that Nedney was losing some leg strength.

  14. Man, I’m new to this site and I can’t believe what I’m hearing. I’t sounds like we got a bunch of young wanna-be, uneducated fans on here. You fucking Buttfucking-cowboy-loving bastards, Larry Allen is a player that were using to become a better team. I’m sorry you little fucks, but larry allen was a Cowboy, and I solute Vernon Davis for fighting that arrogant motherfucker in practice. That piecce of shit Larry is Damn good, but come his Hall of fame induction do you think he’ll be glorify the 49ers. Ryan the first and your buttfucking- one incher partner Bobby boucher you need to check yourself and like Cowboy hater said grow a dick. You two transexuals we’ll never be true 49er fans, so keep dreaming. Do everyone aa favor on this site, get the fuck off go join the Cowboy buttfuckers anonymous. Get talkin shit you and your numerous screenames. I’m going to get the fuck off this site and be part of a true 49ers fan page. Live inb your own Cowboy-49er loving world little dick motherfuckers, you’ll never measure up!

  15. lol, put those motherfuckers in check!

  16. I’m tired of sseeing Bobby boucher AKA ryan the first, Yeee Hee or whoever he deccides to make upp next talk shit! I’m a true fan and it makes me what to immediatly gety off this site and never look back. These young shit talking- wanna- fuckers can have this site to jerk off to each and every day! Keep jerking off Bobby Boucher, I want be listening! Please to us all a favor, and admit that your a She-Male Bobby Boucher!

  17. Bobby boucher is a She-Male. Excuse me while I Barf! Who won the scuffle between Larry Allen and Vernon. I hope vernon!

  18. LOL, you ignorant bum. Go drink some Colt 45 and beg for change on Market ST., because you are never going to be productive individual in this society. Just listen to yourself talk, it is funny how you are trying to watch the spelling errors but they’re still there. Until you learn to spell right, know your role and shut your mouth BUM!

  19. I always new their was something wrong with that motherfucker BB!

  20. I watched the pre-season game on NFL Network and they did say that Robert meachum was having a hard time with the defesive backs in the NFL game. yeeeeee is that the sound you make when you get fucked in the ASS!

  21. LOL, Ah hah hah. That is some funny shit!

  22. Good point Lance!

  23. Good points everyone! has anyone heard any stadium progree yet? I heard they were going to use an abandoned ship yard in the city. is this true?

  24. That’s the exact sound! Very Sexy huh!

  25. Good facts everybody, but I did hear the location for the new stadium would be just north of Monster Park. is this correct,a nd do the 49ers plan on keeping the stadium in the city instead of Santa Clara?

  26. Hey I’m new to this site, and I can’t help but notice that Don Julio sounds exactly like my two year old cousin with down syndrome. Amazing huh? Your mom’s a she-male douchebag, and she birthed you out of her anus.

  27. Fuck you Ryan the 1st and Zack, Vernon Davis is a character individual, and he has been through more shit in his life, than you and your Buttsmacking posey will every know about! Vernon loves this team and he wants to be a 49er for life, unlike that Dallas Hillbilly S.F. 81. You and that She-Male buttsmacker of yours Bobby Boucher need to do us all a favor and get the fuck off the this site! You two and your multiple screenames are bad for this site and you never will be true 49er fans. So give it up, and get the fuck out! go to the Cowboys fan club motherfuckers!

  28. Good Point Bishop!

  29. Funny bishop, but True!

  30. A few minutes? Vernon was out of practice for over 30 after the scuffle between he and Allen. You didnt mention that some of the crowd, and certianly the 49er guests who were under the tents, could hear Vernon when exclaimed ‘Fuck You’ to Allen several times. They were seperated the rest of the practice.

  31. I think it was great. Larry Allen will always be a cowboy my eyes. Like bishop said vernon wants to be a 49er for life unlike Larry! So who everyone commited too. I say Vernon!

  32. Vernon probably doesn’t like that Ex-Cowboy piece of shit. True 49er fans think the same way! once a cowboy always a cowboy, unless they convert like S.F. 81 did with the Cowgirls! Larry can pledge his allegence to this orginization for life, but this will never happen. We as fans can respect his play, and we can root for him to win for us, but to true 49er fans he will not be a true 49er for life!

  33. Unless he wins a championship! going high into the playoffs doesn’t count, the rings count, and the Cowgirls want to get to number 6 before us! So until he helps us win number 6 I want except him fully! We need that extra ring and themn Larry will be one of us!

  34. Fuck you Ryan the 1st and Zack, Vernon Davis is a character individual, and he has been through more shit in his life, than you and your Buttsmacking posey will every know about! Vernon loves this team and he wants to be a 49er for life, unlike that Dallas Hillbilly S.F. 81. You and that She-Male buttsmacker of yours Bobby Boucher need to do us all a favor and get the fuck off the this site! You two and your multiple screenames are bad for this site and you never will be true 49er fans. So give it up, and get the fuck out! go to the Cowboys fan club motherfuckers!

  35. Bishop,Jamarcus,Don Julio,will g,Jose and cowhich are all the same person!why dont you go back to agreeing with yourself like you just did,you goat herder god forbid someone has an opinion other than yours.Practice What you preach.Stop with your multi screen names.go back and graduate 2nd grade you crackhead.
