Thoughts from Day 1 - Passing Camp

FROM DB.com -  (Boxed text from Gary Caldwell Blog)

Is this training camp different - Yes thanks to Dawkins & McDaniels.

Barrett said there’s certainly still learning going on. For him and the other defensive backs in particular, some of that learning has come from Brian Dawkins.

"I just try to take in little things," Barrett said. "You don’t even have to ask questions, but through his actions, through his demeanor you can pretty much pick up on a lot of stuff."

One of the things the secondary is learning about is bringing a game-time work ethic to practice. Barrett said the defensive secondary talks every day about how unacceptable the number of takeaways was last year. Now they’re taking steps to make sure they force more turnovers and make more game-changing plays in 2009.

"We’ve got drills that are just for stripping the ball, just for working on what we call low-impact angles, where you’re not going to be the guy maybe to make the first hit, but you might be the first guy to be able to get a shot at the ball to get the ball loose," he explained. "So certain things like that, aggressiveness like that is what we really need to work on."

Dawkins & McDaniels paying dividends already!!
