I wanted to take a moment to encourage everyone to watch the video, as linked in MGo.Licio.us on the side bar, of Devin Gardner's 23 snaps from the spring game. I was there and saw it live, as well as watching the spring game video several times, but for some reason, seeing chopped out sections of the game that show only one players performance really help better frame what it is you're looking at.
It also brings up a question. Since the QB's were in red, were they not supposed to enter a pile at all? At two points, there's a fumble. After the first one, Gardner chases after it and ends up running it off the sideline. After the second, he kinda stares at it with a deer in headlights look till the defense recovers. Did one of the coaches berate him after putting himself in position for heavy contact on the first one, or did he just have a freshman moment on the second one?
Man, I used to think Gardner maybe had an outside shot at playing time this year... but whoo. All separated out? That was a LOT of freshman mistakes.
