Notes to take away from OTA’s today

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Hill has a Hamstring and Holmes removes himself from field:

  • -Santonio must have hurt himself during OTA’s, as Rich Cimini tweeted that he “May have injured himself. Tossed helmet.” Hill on the other hand, may have tweeked a hamstring, but it appears to be nothing serious (let’s pray).
  • UPDATE- Holmes removed himself, in attempt to ease back into practice. He wants to slowly increase his reps.

Kicking competition IS ON:

  • - Nick Folk and Josh Brown will be competing for the starting kicking spot. As for today, the two each went kick for kick (4-4)–”Up to 42 yards”, according to @Wesley_Sykes.

Defense looks to be further along than the Offense:

  • Tony Sparano apparently yelled to Tebow, “That’s not the plan”, after Tebow ran for a first down. He may have chose to tuck the ball and run after great defensive coverage, but one thing is for sure– Sparano got a bit frustrated that the D was dictating his offensive plans, and play execution.

    Sanchez needs to show he is the leader of this team and everyone else will then step up.  He already has his O-Line supporting him they showed that last year.  The QB owns that huddle and sets the tone.  This is Sanchez make or break year and i think he knows it.  Look for him to play big.

    Thanks for the comment BigRalph!
    I totally agree with you regarding Sanchez’s make or break year. You’re right, he needs to step it up, and the best way for him to do that is to be a more consistent passer. That starts in OTA’s- NOW. I expect him to practice a little bit better from here on out, or he will really hear it from T. Sparano!
    As for leading the team, I’d have to say he has been doing quite well thus far (organizing workouts in Cal. and such). But being a leader also means leading by example on the field. If he steps up his game on the field (even in practice) I think we will then see everyone else step up– just like you said!
