Training Camp Report – Day 5

After 1 day off, the Rams Gab training camp reporter, my brother, Zach Roman, was back on the scene reporting from the afternoon practice on August 4th.

Shorts and shells for the afternoon practice today.

The nickel defense was on show today. It looked like Wade and King were trading reps as the 3rd CB in the nickel defense.

The team took a good portion in the middle of practice to go over kick off returns with Darby, Gado, Stanley, and Avery took turns receiving the kicks.

The full report is after the jump!

During 11v11s:

The 1st team offense got the better of the 2nd team defense easily today with Bulger completing almost all his passes against them.

Bajema showed off his less than stellar skills as a pass catcher to wrangle in a pass from Boller on a half dive, half tumble.

Keith Null was able to put two passes in a row on the money. One to Jarret Byers and the other to Klopfenstein. Whats of note there is that the former Colorado TE and 2nd round pick has fallen down to the 3rd team offense.

Curry was able to gather a pass from Bulger on a very nice post route up the middle.

On an interesting note I was standing next to a guy who was friends with a media-relations type guy (possibly although I am not certain). Anyway the fan asked, “So are we going to be good this year?”
And the media-relations-type guy responded with, ” Not good, but better. The defense will definitely be better. We are missing just 2 or 3 more guys. But its evident that Spags has a plan.  (This isn’t word for word what the guy said but pretty close.  I tried to capture the essence of what he said.)

This seems to be the real hope for Rams fans out there. That our coach has a plan and we may not be good this year but we are on our way up, not like we could go any more down(knock on wood).
