I just finished up doing a radio show with Bill Hillgrove at Sharky's here in Latrobe and it reminded me of what a consummate pro Billy is.
He just makes it so easy.
© The morning practice was pretty blah. The veterans were given the morning off after last night's practice.
But that did give me a chance to get a good look at young quarterbacks Dennis Dixon and Mike Potts.
It wasn't pretty.
Dixon delivers the ball like he's throwing a dart and is pretty inaccurate - though his athleticism is apparent.
Potts is more accurate, but doesn't have an NFL-caliber arm.
© That did afford some interception opportunities and Anthony Madison, Travis Williams and Ryan Mundy obliged.
I watched Mundy closely this morning and the sixth-round pick appears to be thinking too much out there rather than just reacting.
He's always a step slow to the play and it appears to be because he's trying to think about where he's supposed to be instead of just doing it.
On his interception - against Potts - he jumped a route down the middle and took a ball away from tight end Jon Dekker to end practice.
Mundy has the best size of any safety on this team. If he can put it together - not likely this season - he could be a player.
© Doug Legursky, a guard-center from Marshall, is back with the club, which released rookie placekicker Julian Rauch.
That tells me that Chris Kemoeatu isn't as close to a return as I thought and that the team is concerned with the back injury that kept center Sean Mahan out of practice Friday night.
Mahan, however, returned to practice this morning.
© Justin Hartwig looked pretty good at center in place of Mahan Friday night. Maybe that's why Mahan hurried back.
