Learning a new offense is never easy, but Todd Graham’s fast-paced system may be particularly hard for quarterbacks. While it sounds like progress is being made, the team is still struggling with turnovers on occasion:
We turned the ball over way too much," Graham said.
Sunseri, Mark Myers (twice) and Trey Anderson were intercepted. Running backs Ray Graham, Malcolm Crockett and Desmond Brown lost fumbles in a shoulder-pads-and-shorts practice. There also were at least three bad shotgun snaps when the ball hit the ground.
“I feel really good about the defense,” Todd Graham said, “but I don’t feel good about putting the ball in jeopardy.”
The key part, though, is that starting quarterback Tino Sunseri is having a good camp by all indications. While he did throw an interception during Thursday’s practice, that was his first one in approximately 200 attempts, the Trib article notes. As the starter, that’s a good sign that Tino understands the offense and is limiting his mistakes.
