Matt Moore remains the cream of the crop at quarterback. He completed four of five passes during the seven-on-seven drill, but struggled along with the other QBs during the full scrimmage.
Rookie WR David Gettis made two crowd-pleasing catches, one from Hunter Cantwell and the other from Jimmy Clausen.
Clausen had the crowd buzzing as he took over during the full scrimmage. He had no completions on his first series, but connected with Josh Vaughan and Dantrell Savage the second time around.
Vaughan took several reps at tailback and broke free for a 30-yard gain off a screen pass from Clausen, but it was called back due to a holding penalty.
The crowd got excited when Matt Moore aired it out to Kenny Moore, who broke free down the sideline, but the perfect pass and certain TD slipped through Kenny's fingers.
James Anderson, Tyler Brayton, Greg Hardy, Everette Brown and Marcus Hudson were all awarded sacks. Hudson's sack was at full speed from the blind side; if it had been a real game, it would have likely caused a fumble.
C.J. Wilson had two great chances to pick off Moore but couldn't haul in either.
Tank Tyler recovered a Tony Fiammetta fumble and returned it a few yards, much to the crowd's approval.
Brayton broke through the line and forced Cantwell to fumble before he could pass.
Dan Connor and Jon Beason work well together in the absence of Thomas Davis and recorded several tackles Saturday, many for little or no gain.
Armanti Edwards, Kenny Moore and Captain Munnerlyn fielded all punts and kicks successfully. Edwards showed off his quickness and agility by weaving through defenders en route to open field on several kicks.
Fan favorite John Kasay remained automatic from any distance, going seven for seven on his attempted field goals.
Todd Carter had no such luck, as he connected on only one of his four field-goal attempts; the one that squeezed through the uprights was a low line-drive.
