    • Smaller crowd than last year with Wilks?
    • Marcus Gilbert leads the O into the field
    • Murray extremely swaggy. Only Card not wearing uniform pants in warmups
    • Very high tempo practice except for the OL. Have concerns about conditioning for that group.
    • QBs spent 5 minutes practicing RPOs
    • Murray will fumble. Holds the ball like a loaf of bread.
    • OL is extremely bad and the reason we’ll be bad this year.
    • Cards haven’t had a worse #2 QB in a long time than Hundley.

    My thoughts on the way back to the car once the scrubs came is were that the offensive line is so bad we’re going to wonder what Murray might really be capable of. It could likely cost Steve Keim his job, because this pedestrian group of interior rushers got though constantly during 11 on 11. With a couple injuries on the OL, Kyler could be looking back to his baseball career more fondly.

    Isabella was out and I didn’t see Kirk playing with the ones, but this offense didn’t look or feel all that fast. Defense looks about league average, with the secondary a strength.This was probably a 6 win team last year with a drag of awful coaching; its probably still another year away from being competitive.

    It was shocking how bad that OL looked.

    Thanks for the recap. Have to keep in mind though that these guys on the oline need time to gel and defense usually ahead of offense this early.

    Thanks for the recap, especially one that wasn't candy-coated.

    Hey! The same thing that people said about my recap last season.

    David Johnson was working with Kyler on the RPO drill. He barely played in the scrimmage section, but he did have a mental error on a screen play that Murray was in his ear about afterward.

    Murray does have exceptional acceleration. When he decides to put his foot in the ground and go, he’s off. He’s just going to have to adjust to that moment faster at this level and with this offensive line, because there were no windows on the outside.

    Chad and Brandon Williams were both not wearing pads. I hadn’t heard that’s Chad was injured, but I think Brandon might still be on PUP?

    Out-of-staters who think that K1 and K2 are setting the valley on fire are mistaken. Most quiet crowd I’ve seen in many years.

    K1’s short TD to White was really nifty, though.

    This is epically poorly written. It's fine to say the OL will be trash, but back it up with some thoughts. This reads like a diary entry.

    Oh no! The offensive line comprised of injured castoffs doesn't look good! Needs more insight.

    Once that’s done is there anything else we can get you?

    Zane Gonzalez is missing field goals in practice.

    Fitz and Andy Lee are a year older.

    OL if not terrible is certainly the achilles heal.

    DL does not even have enough bodies. One or two injuries on that DL, fans will be missing Wilks in run defense. Rodney Gunter is going to play starter?

    Let's not talk about LBs again.

    P2 suspended first six games.

    Looking at videos in one of the threads this evening 28 looks faster than 31.

    If Murray can pull this team to six wins, it will be a terrific achievement.

    How would be missing Wilks for anything... especially run defense with that clown Holcomb

    Kicker should not be an issue with a team that will (hopefully) be fighting for wins. If Zane Gonzalez is missing kicks in practice, get rid of him. Special teams needs to be a strong spot for this young team. Can’t be missing field goals

    Behind you
    Shoot even Humphries said the entire o line was out of gas
    No stamina and bad players
    Murray will be running for his life

    I see the entire next year draft going O line and D line

    Betting on the Cards is foolish at this point

    At least the OP gave an honest review....the really sad part is the O line was getting destroyed by Gunter and the scuba we got....not Aaron Donald...
    There’s a reason every outlet has the Cards 32nd
    Drink up all the Kool Aid we can because reality is gonna come fast

    Did you expect anything different with K9? If so, you haven't been paying attention.
