Babb has quite a few twitter comments about the players in today's scrimmage. His remarks about Croyle being better than Thigpen have already ignited a lot of comment. So let me through some more gas out there on the fire and give some more quotes.
kb_kcstar: C's: LJ, Cassel, Derrick Johnson, Bowe, Toomer, Croyle.
kb_kcstar: Everybody else ... I'd better keep my mouth shut.
kb_kcstar: A clarification: Not everybody was memorable enough to deserve a grade. I'm sure I forgot someone. The ones I included were standouts.
He also had comments about a few other players:
kb_kcstar: LB Tamba Hali has really come a long way. That guy is QUICK around the corner. This might work out after all.
kb_kcstar: Speaking of WRs, Jeff Webb did himself NO favors today by dropping several very reasonable passes.
kb_kcstar: @BDP12: Charles is too valuable to do much KR work. They'd like Quinten Lawrence to do that, but he has struggled. LJ-Charles-Battle-Smith.
Some surprises on these lists of grades. Sounds like some guys showed up to play. And sounds like maybe some guys won't be showing up to play for much longer. Looks like we still have some holes to fill and some holes we thought were there may not be as bad as we thought. Of course, this is the first real contact scrimmage and there is a lot of work to do yet. Can't wait to see the game in a week so we can get a good look at just what we have here.
