Golden Nuggets: More Notes

This post is sponsored by the committee to get Dominique Zeigler elected onto the 49ers 53-man roster come the beginning of the 2010 season. I mean, it's not really, but I really do like what he brings to the team, it's more than a 'mancrush' at this point. He is an element we don't have yet. But I'll put that aside because I know there are those of you who will claim all of the good things I say about him come from bias, but I have it on good authority that you smell funny. So there's that. Had some scary stuff go down at training camp with Chilo Rachal and the like, but beyond that things seem to be going well. The defense is pushing the offense around, but that's to be expected, no? I mean - it's gonna be the best defense next year, so you know. Anyway, enjoy your links.

Why not start off with some notes from yesterday morning's training camp from Maiocco. (

Barber has his morning notes as well. Cool to see the bit about Davis vs Mitchell in the nutcracker. Wish I could be there. (

Chilo Rachal collapsed during team practices due to dehydration. I really hate to see that happen. Scary stuff. (

Ted Ginn is becoming more for this team than a return specialist. Hey, if he can do it, then he can do it. I support him, but I'm a little scared to 'trust' anything to Ginn's hands right now. (

Aaand, Maiocco's notes from the afternoon. ( 

Good to see that Glen Coffee wants to improve on his rookie season, which was mediocre to say the least. Still, he wasn't really in the best position to succeed. (

He seems to be the hot topic right now, so why not have another article on FB Brit Miller? Likin' the guy more and more. (

Here are some quotes from Jimmy Raye concerning a couple players. (

I'm not entirely sure that Kentwan Balmer can be successful in this league, I just don't see it happening. This is probably his last year to show he can play. (

Barrows has a bit about the veteran courtesy and which players are excused from practices with regularity. (

I like that we're resorting to the deep ball in practice, I just don't like the fact that the guy we're throwing to is Ted Ginn. He can look great in practice but that's what he's done. He deceives you, lulls you into a false sense of security. (

I really think this is Crabtree's year to break out. Can't say much more than that. Crabtree thinks he's on the route to greatness. (
