Based on the coach's comments after the scrimmage, the effort level was not good for both the OL and the defense as a whole. I hope the team can develop the understanding that they should take the scrimmages AT LEAST - if they can't take the overall fall camp - as seriously as they can, like they are real games. Put forth optimum effort, and try their hardest.
This is the best time to do this: if they make mistakes because it's only halfway through the fall camp, well that's what the camp is for, and they will have plenty of time to correct them. But they need to push through the scrimmages as hard as they can, because come season they are going to HAVE to play full-bore, or they will get their butts beat.
They have shown some enthusiasm and effort during the earliest practices, so they are capable of doing it. I hope the leaders of the team will get in the players heads and stress the importance of establishing good practice and effort tendencies now, so that doing it in real games comes easier. Hopefully the coaches help with also....
I liked Shaw having a good showing - he struggled a bit in the little mini-scrimmage during the week, so perhaps he was anxious to prove that he's not slipping. But him performing well consistently keeps the pressure on Garcia, and also shows that we have a viable alternative should Garcia not improve, or gets injured. Garcia did not do well at all, obviously, but he was constantly pressured by the D his whole time. I think our defense will be stout this year.
Loved the WRs playing so well, but thought our secondary would have responded better than that. Hopefully we'll see improvements for our next full scrimmage...
