Here's more evidence to use if you want to be optimistic about the defense. Antrel Rolle finished off the evening practice a few minutes ago with a pickoff of an Eli Manning pass to Steve Smith, and then returned it for a touchdown.
Michael Boley was also said to be looking good. And, lo and behold, this blog's favorite kicker, Lawrence Tynes, went 7-for-7 and is now 15-for-15 in training camp placements.
The offense had its ups and downs as Will Beatty, fighting David Diehl for left tackle, gave up a sack to Mathias Kiwanuka and then got beat by Dave Tollefson, prompting a chew-out by line coach Pat Flaherty. But apparently Adam Koets did a nice job filling in for Shaun O'Hara, who sat with a swollen left ankle.
