Default Moss performing after one-on-one coaching. A glimmer of hope?

From the team blog, Day 12 pm

Quote:
PLAYMAKERS: Before practice, Jarvis Moss worked with Nunnely one-on-one, focusing on how to use his hands to fight off blockers. Apparently the tutoring was a success, because Moss was all over the place during practice. During one-on-one drills with the offensive line, Moss thought he had a sack, but Nunnely said he went too far past the quarterback, who would've simply stepped up in the pocket and thrown the ball. So on the next rep, Moss ripped past his blocker and got to the quarterback, drawing a "There you go! Good!" from Nunnely.


But Moss wasn't done. In 11-on-11s, Moss sprinted into the backfield and wrapped up Darius Walker for a loss, bringing loud encouragement from the defense on the sideline. Finally, with the offense and defense practicing the two-minute drill, Moss blitzed and notched a sack on Kyle Orton.
Moss having success in practice obviously doesn't mean much, especially when the official team blogger failed to tell us who was blocking him. But one point that shouldn't be overlooked is the fact that this success came after one-on-one tutoring from his position coach about hand placement.

Might this be a sign of the improved production due to improved coaching that we all have longed to see? Could Denver actually be developing a defensive player?


Discuss.

After one one-on-one coaching session, he's obviously ready to set the league on fire now.

He is to much of a liability vs. the run. The guy is not strong enough to hold the line once he is engaged by blockers, so if he can figure out how to use his hands better it should help,

I know to many Moss has been written off as garbage but if the Giants liked him, there must be something there. And the Giants havent missed alot on their front 7 picks. It would be great if Moss, Crowder, Doom or some combination of the three can really step up with improved coaching. It makes me more eager to see what happens when someone not named Slowik is calling the defenses too.

I still go back to it coming down to what you do on third down. If they can step up on third downs, it could go a long way. The 10 yard cushions on 3rd and 5 were back breakers.

Depends upon the player and what you scream.

I affectionately refer to this as the "Amon Gordon" effect.

Hmm, do you think this year they will decide to really let the D line loose? To have them pin their ears back?

All they have ever done is yell and scream a bunch of jibberish at him and refused to coach him. This year they are going to uncover him and TURN HIM LOOSE and he is going to get 10 plus sacks.

This year Moss learns the techniques and get valuable game experience. In the offseason he's assigned a strength and nurtrionist to gain 15-25 lbs of muscle.....and look out 2010!!!!!

How do you/we know that that is all they did? Refused to coach him? Ummm, yeah ok, most clubs ignore 1st rd picks and refuse to aid in their development. Gimme a break.

We'll see a return on Moss right after Torrain "gets healthy" and starts tearing up the league. This guy is a certified bust... which is fine. Just admit it and move on.
