Rod Smith sees the changes
- Smith said Tony Franklin was much more animated than usual. He stopped a play and showed everyone on the field why a particular route was incorrect and actually ran the (correct) route himself.
- Smith said Franklin commented that "the old Franklin" was back.
- Smith said he'd never seen "the old Franklin" before and this guy was much more stern.
- Smith said the team is running a smaller group of plays and focusing on making those few plays work correctly every single time. If anyone made a mistake today, Smith said the team had to run the play again. Some play were run as many as three or four times in a row.
- Smith said the tempo was much faster than ever before today.
I'll have more on this in a bit ...
