August 17, 2006 The Mosley Afternoon Report begins NOW... This morning's practice had it all: Bill Parcells went off on everyone who crossed his path, rookie linebacker Oliver Hoyte and D'Anthony Batiste livened up a special teams drill and a reporter was wiped out by an inside linebacker. Oh, and T.O. continued to drop passes. It's all here in this fast-paced afternoon edition of The Mosley Report: Bill Parcells began the day with an animated conversation with trainer Britt Brown. Then he shouted at strength and conditioning coach Joe Juraszek for taking more than his alloted stretching time...After J.R. Tolver dropped a pass during Todd Haley's entertaining 4-cone drill, he spiked the ball over the fence and onto a golf course. Tolver began climbing the fence, but Haley stopped him. "That's like a prison fence," said Haley, the Don Rickles of assistant coaches... Terrell Owens dropped at least three balls in Thursday's practice. In the short amount of time we've seen him, he tends to struggle with balls thrown slightly behind him...T.O. did make an acrobatic catch on a deep ball from Drew Bledsoe during team drills...Rookie safety Abram Elam destroyed rookie running back Demetris Summers in a drill designed to teach backs how to pick up the blitz...Guard D'Anthony Batiste lit up linebacker Ryan Fowler during a 2-on-2 drill. I heard Fowler complaining later about how Batiste was trying to be a training camp hero. Players who have been around for a couple of years hate it when rookies try to overdo it during camp. Last year, that rookie was Justin Beriault... Greg Ellis broke through the line to disrupt an inside running drill...Parcells told running back Marion Barber to "take his high heels off" after one inside run. He shouted at Barber for not using a stiff arm...DE Marcus Spears has been getting the best of OT Marc Colombo for most of camp, but Colombo fought back this morning. He drove Spears into the ground during 1-on-1 drills...DE Jay Ratliff lit up guard Cory Procter during 1-on-1 drills, prompting a loud celebration from the defensive line... Thomas "Pepper" Johnson made left guard Kyle Kozier look bad during 1-on-1 drills...LT Flozell Adams did not appreciate rookie defensive end Jason Hatcher celebrating during team drills and let him know...It's starting to look like Drew Henson will not play against the Saints on Monday. Judging by practice, Matt Baker will receive the leftovers. Much, much more to come. m Posted by Matt Mosley at 4:09 PM (E-mail this entry) | Comments (0) Afternoon Report Update... Thanks to Cowboys trainers Jim Maurer, Britt Brown and Greg Gaither, I'm back on my feet after taking a big hit from linebacker Akin Ayodele during this morning's practice. Fortunately, the cameras were not rolling during that portion of team drills. I'm now putting together one of the most thorough afternoon reports in club history. Stay by your laptops, folks. You're 20 minutes away from the full report.
