Even though it was a long day, it was a fun one. I started the day early again -- treatment at 6:30am. It was more active than the past few days, though. I did body-weight squats and a pool workout. It's encouraging to see the progress my back has made. I even got on the field to do some pass rush drills on a pop-up bag. I worked on the swim move mostly and an inside counter move.
Kerney looked sharp today in pass-rush drills too. It's good to see him having a healthy year. After practice, he was playing some solid hair-metal on the D-Line I-Pod. He brought in some loud speakers so we can try to compete with music coming from the secondary guys. It's usually a consistent sound coming from them -- Rap and R&B. The D-Line listens to those two as well, but we tend to have a wider variety of songs playing.
Edge was in the locker room today too. He looked different than I thought he would -- no gold teeth. I've heard from some of my former teammates in Arizona that he is an incredible teammate. I'm looking forward to seeing him on the field and getting to know him in the locker room.
The end of the day was the most fun. The D-Line got together to watch Kansas City game film and Coach Quinn brought chicken wings for all of us. Kansas City has a strong veteran offensive-line. It should be a good challenge for us on Saturday.
Gotta go play with my little girl -- she's waving her hand and saying, "Da Da Da Da Da Da".
Seeing both of my girls standing at the front door smiling at me when I got home!
