    Have you ever had one of those days! I've just got through 13 of the 15 photos and.... bang, I press a wrong button and the whole messgae has gone!!!! (35mins of uploads/notes wasted!)

    I'll start again!

    Read Grizz's analysis - it is fanatastic. Then perhaps work the photos in from there.

    My notes:

    1 MB3 was outstanding today. Bill has stated that he is the most complete back at this stage. You could see why.
    2 Drew Bledsoe moved the offense, but it wasn't the most inspiring display.
    3 Tony Romo did well in his series. He led the team to score a couple of times.
    4 Drew Henson was a major shock for me. He looked poised in the pocket, was on the money with most of his passes and he looked in general as though he was in command of his players. His stats were excellent too. I had already written him off - having watched every session thus far along with the 3 sessions last summer.
    5 The chemistry was still there between Bledsoe and last year's primary recieving threats TG and JW.
    6 Sam Hurd had 2 dazzling catches. At least one of them was over Nate Jones.
    7 The 1st team offensive line did acceptably considering we are only 1 week into TC. They opened a few holes and kept Bledsoe safe for a suffcient amount of time- but obviously improvements have to be made! (This despite my next comment...)
    8 Drew Bledsoe was sacked a number of times. He does still seem to hang on to the ball too long, but only the coaches will know for sure whether they were coverage sacks or his responsibility.
    9 Carpenter looked fluid during his plays. He made 2 sacks, but generally looked as though he is NFL ready.
    10 Burnett also impressed me with his play. I'm glad to see that he appears to be the player we thought we were drafting last year. He can be a destructive force and seemed to be around the ball frequently.
    11 Canty caught the eye - particularly on the 1st series.
    12 John Saldi surprised me. He hadn't shown much during TC, but I was impressed with the way he hussled for his sack, then launched himself at 90 degrees to ensure he got it.
    13 I know the session was supposed to be without major contact, but there were 2 massive hits. The one from 'Killer', but another when T newman really laid the wood on Terrance Copper, forcing the ball loose.

    For a more complete analysis - I really do recommend you read Grizz's analysis, it's a remarkable read.

    A few photos:

    Canty about to sack Bledsoe - the 2nd play of the day

    Crayton couldn't make a one handed catch as Ware busted up Petitti but didn't get the sack in time.

    Newman about to break-up a pass intended for Crayton.

    Romo dumping off to Lousaka Polite on his 1st series.

    On a roll-out Romo hit Tony Curtis for 5yds. I think I may have been following MB3 there! To be fair, I'm not the only one fooled!! Curtis on far-right.

    Romo missing Curtis on the next play.

    Romo lead the offense to their 1st points - a 50ish yd field goal by Vandy.

    MB3 about to get stopped for no gain by Carpenter (hidden, but you can see his legs).

    Ryan Hannam makes a good one-handed catch from Henson.

    Carpenter about to sack Bledsoe.

    Henson in action - I think throwing it out of bounds.

    Henson going for the bomb to Hurd - pass interference.

    Romo in action.

    A number of the big boys on their sprints.

    Bradie James with Scott Shanle to his left.

    You know what, from the angle of your pics and where you were standing in relation to the field, you must've been in front of me and a little to my left. I posted some pics from the scrimmage on my blog, here's one below and notice how close the angles match on your photo of Bradie James running sprints and mine.

    Unbelievable! I'm there - just about!! You just catch my arm and cream coloured polo-shirt in the bottom right hand corner of your shot!

    In fact, I can hear the chap with the blue baseball cap shouting, "Don't be last!" repeatedly!!!!

    OK, so I had the "to the left part" wrong, you were basically right in front of me.

    Just to say Grizz - thank you again for the fantastic analysis! How could you make those notes so quickly? I spent that long trying to get a decent view for the camera that I missed an awful lot of plays.

    Then on the far side, I missed the player frequently!

    If so guys, it will have to be quick!

    I'm due to fly back out of Oxnard on Tuesday afternoon! So Monday's practices will be the last for me this year!

    As always, to all who may be there...... I'm the floppy-haired Brit. A sort of a cheap man's (only in wealth obviously :) ) Hugh Grant - come and say, " Hello," if passing me by.

    Here's a photo from Oxnard - sorry folks, it's a little disturbing for me too!!!

    That's a requirement, definately. Board representation is a must, and you fellas are part of this team we have here. I'm sure Hos will approve all site-related expenditures, so go ahead boys, whoop it up, and send the bill to Uncle Hos here at home.

    I would love to be a fly on the wall when Hos hands Reality that bill.

    Hos to Reality: "But it was good publicity. I'm not sure what the Golden Slipper is but I'm sure if the drinks cost 10.00 each, it must be high class!"

    Just as long as there are plenty of good pics of our fine members representing us in a manner befitting all good Cowboys fans, I'm sure they would have absolutely NO problem whatsoever.
