Thanks to Twitter and compilations of information (like this one over at 1500 ESPN) even those that reside in the far reaches of the globe (like yours truly) can get up-to-the-minute progress reports from Mankato.
It has been two days since I have updated my impressions (via the impression of others) of how things are going in training camp. Tomorrow, the 16 some off players that have not yet been able to practice will be able to suit up, so things will likely change.
Here is some information of interest in nifty bullet point format:
- The quarterback depth chart seems to be falling into place. Ponder appears to be out-performing Webb. Webb seems to be out-performing Bomar. McNabb will be the week one starter. Webb is still running with the first team, but that seems more like a formality than anything. No surprises at the quarterback position… for the first time in about 6,546 months (give or take).
- Running back Adrian Peterson is reported to now be the father of a baby boy. Can we just draft the kid now, or do we have to wait? Peterson is expected to be back in Mankato by the weekend. Some beat writers (here’s looking at you Pelissero) seem on the verge of making a big deal out of his absence, but let’s all be honest, Peterson hardly ever does anything in the first week of training camp anyways.
