With 22 seconds left on the clock Young fired a pass over the middle to Martin on a post pattern for a 25-yard touchdown with 17 seconds left to complete the drive.
Head coach Chan Gailey liked what he got from Young in the passing game Monday.
“That’s the best he’s done since he’s been here,” said Gailey. “I think today was his best day since he’s been here. He’s got a better grasp of it at any time in the OTAs or minicamp and I think he’s feeling a lot more comfortable.”
The first team offense capped their two-minute drive with even more drama. After a slip screen by
Fitzpatrick fired a bullet to
On 3rd-and-goal from the one-yard line, Fitzpatrick wasn’t looking when the ball was snapped to him in the shotgun and he had to retreat and pounce on the ball at the 15-yard line with the clock running.
But the offense quickly lined up and got the snap off with one second on the clock and Fitzpatrick fired a dart over the middle to an open Scott Chandler for the touchdown.
“They’re getting a little better,” said Gailey. “You keep working it and you keep going and it pays dividends. I thought both the first and the second offense did a good job of running two minute today.”
With the second unit on offense and defense both on the field, Choice was given a hand-off on the first play from scrimmage. He got around the left corner, but Da’Norris Searcy came from the middle of the field with a full head of steam and hit Choice broad side knocking him clean off his feet to the hoots and howls of the defensive players looking on from the sidelines.
On the very next play Choice was again given the hand-off for an inside run play, but
Morrison tried to downplay the hits.
“It’s just football man,” he said. “It’s just going against the same guys for two weeks and going toward the end of camp right now so we’re just ready to hit another jersey. Last week we got a little bit in playing the Washington Redskins, but we’re ready for a big game against Minnesota this week.”
“That’s football,” said Gailey. “In training camp you’re supposed to have those. I don’t want those in the regular season in practice, but in training camp that’s part of it.”
