Training Camp Report: Aug. 4

Posted by Taylor Price on August 4, 2012 – 8:21 PM

Things became more competitive between the offense and defense during a night practice at 49ers Training Camp presented by HP. Following two days of dominance by Vic Fangio’s crew, the 49ers offense rebounded to make a number of plays against last year’s second-best scoring defense.

For starters, San Francisco’s starting offense punched in a touchdown from two-yards out in a live, short-yardage goal-line period. Coincidentally, the touchdown came from converted tight end Demarcus Dobbs who was wearing a No. 40 practice jersey. No official word on a potential uniform change, but Dobbs got behind Patrick Willis’ coverage to haul in a 3-yard pass from Alex Smith in the back right corner of the end zone.

The second-team defense did its part to stop Colin Kaepernick and the second-team offense on the second short-yardage goal-line drive. The third-team offense, however, picked up another score when Kendall Hunter plunged in from 1-yard on third-down and goal.  It’s worth noting that Scott Tolzien and Josh Johnson also took second-team reps in later periods of practice.

Let’s take a look at the top highlights from Saturday evening.

-Mike Iupati was absent again from practice, presumably to spend more time with his newborn child.

-Special teams period saw the group work on coffin-corner punting. A.J. Jenkins worked with the gunners while Ted Ginn Jr., Kyle Williams and LaMichael James fielded punts on the adjacent practice field.

-Wide receiver-defensive back one-on-ones were competitive on both sides. Chris Culliver failed to record an interception for the fourth consecutive practice, but did record a pass breakup on Johnson’s deep in route intended for Brett Swain during the period. On the far field, tight end Delanie Walker beat Willis on a go route while linebackers and running backs. Jenkins made his best reception of camp in the period, hauling in a deep sideline route as he was interfered with by Tramaine Brock. Chris Owusu closed out the period with a nice catch off a double-move route. Randy Moss even chimed in with praise towards the undrafted wideout.

-The opening red zone period saw complete jubilation from Dobbs’ touchdown catch and Hunter’s short touchdown run. The second-team defense, however, was stopped at the goal-line when Anthony Dixon picked up 1-yard on a third-and-goal carry from the 4-yard line.

-Two-minute offense saw Johnson work with the second-team and complete a 20-yard pass to tight end Konrad Reuland and a 10-yard comeback to Jenkins at the expense of Brock. A hand to the face penalty on guard Derek Hall, called by Harbaugh himself, ended the drill for Johnson and the second-team.

-Things fared better for the offense in a later move the ball period. Alex Smith and the first-team unit picked up four first downs to set up a field goal attempt from David Akers.

-Red zone 7-on-7 work late in practice saw Smith complete short touchdowns to Williams and Moss against the first-team defense. Williams scored on a slant pattern against Tarell Brown, while Moss’ score came on a slant route against Carlos Rogers.

-In a team period from midfield, Scott Tolzien’s pass was tipped at the line and intercepted by starting outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks. Other highlights from team periods were provided by Perrish Cox, who knocked down an unsuspecting Dixon on a run play and later recorded a pass breakup to close out one of the final team periods.

-One funny observation from post practice involved the rookie wideouts. Jenkins, Owusu, Nathan Palmer and Brian Tyms sprinted to the juggs machine to catch passes before Vernon Davis and Moss could get there first.

    Looks like Kapernick was simply a product of an exotic offense in college after all. Disappointed

    It sounds to me like Tolzein and Johnson are making up ground in the back up QB race against Kaepernick. Wouldn’t be surprised after the preseason to see either (or both) of them higher on the depth chart than Kaep. Make no mistake, this is Alex’s team. I got used to having winning seasons with him at Utah. I’m loving it even more now with my Niners.

    Some of you need to take a hike and not look back. Last I knew, people cheered for a team and the players on that team. Others sit back and hope for someone to falter so they can say” told ya so.” Alex D Smith is a good QB, maybe he didn’t start of the greatest even though he had such a stellar supporting cast, but he is not done yet. Aaron Rogers is on record as saying he would have floundered given the lack of talent surrounding Smith when he was thrown in as starter.

    jeromy,
    It is so painfully obvious that in your mind the topic is not the 49ers, not Alex Smith, not Jim Harbaugh, not the great niners D, not the niners STs, no it is YOU. Everything, is about you, how you feel, what you want (more attention), why can’t people step forwand and recognize your wisdom? It is just so sad that you don’t get the attention and recognition that you know you so richly deserve.

    Of course of course , a 13-3 record and a couple of bone head plays away from playing in the super bowl and we still have idiots complaining about Alex Smith.

    What can I say , some people are just ungrateful.

    Seriously? How can you call Alex Smith a choke artist after last season? Did you not watch the Divisional playoff game against Saints that will go down as one of the best playoff games in the history of the NFL? I believe he was second only to Eli in game winning drives last season.
    Also if you have really watched the niners for the past seven years you should know that, maybe with the exception of Norv Turner, all of our Offensive coordinators have been jokes. On top of that our best receiver during Alex’s early years was Arnez Battle.
    Alex Smith is no Joe Montana, but the way our team is built right now he is more than capable of taking us to and winning a Super Bowl. A Top 5 Defense, Special Teams, and Run Game is more than you need to win. Throw in a QB that only threw 5 interceptions last season and will probably add at least ten TD’s this year and I would call that a team of Destiny. So stop complaining (This isn’t Philadelphia) and appreciate the fact that for the first time in ten years we have a team that can compete for a Superbowl!

    uhhh lol you guys ….forgot allready our kicker went to the probowl and scored more points than rice in a season …that was the 13-3 record …feel me …alex was the same if not even more average because it was obvious the coach told him to throw the ball away ..or check down if the first read was bad ….that is a fact and it is not disputed…..alex has 1 last chance to get it right …i dont see it happening he still has major problems with his footwork …reads ….he telegraphs too much and cant look off a safety to save his life ….not to mention he still stands there like a deer in headlights on 3rd down when everyone knows the blitz is coming …..and alex just stares down field and takes the sack …..thanks alex .

    @ Jeromy… we will all be here at the end of February saying “we told you so”.. Did you ever watch Smith in college. Better than Rodgers in my opinion, better than Brady… Those guys stepped into great organized football teams. Rodgers had Farvre, and Brady had Bledsoe. Smith had no one. The guy can play. 49ers were in turmoil. Coach after coach. Coordinator after coordinator. And a really crumby offense. If Smith is such a choke artist, when did he choke this past season? Not much really… Only real issues the team had were red zone scoring. But I’m not here to argue, I’m here to help see the whole picture and all the details of why things happened the way they did. I think if Smith was drafted to Green Bay instead of Rodgers, he’d have a ring. But that’s speculation. Anyway.. Let’s just support the great team we have, the great team that’s only getting better and no pick at all the faults of the past…. Proud of the Rd n’ Gold!!! 49ers for life.. Peace

    I own a #11 jersey and i wear it every home game that the 49ers have! Alex is a 49er, so i got his back! Yes he has been there are 7 years and has not been the best prroducer. However that is due to the changes that has been around him for the 7purpose years that he has been there. Joe Montana, Steve Young and Jeff Garcia struggled at first. The 49ers went through the same 10book year slump in the 70’s, changes included. Then Bill Walsh came and changed thiings for us, just like what we see now. We will win the Super Bowl THIS YEAR WITTH ALEX SMITH GO 9ERS!

    Here’s hoping that Alex will have another great season. I don’t understand how a fan of this team can be so negative about a player. After Alex’s season last year what more can he do right now? The least you could do is support him for the time being while he is actually doing his job. I would love to see Alex have a great season, even though that won’t shut up some of the negative nancys in this fanbase.

    This is to “Eleven years with Alex” I read your post, and as hard as I was trying, I couldn’t find anything not true about your statement. That being said, i do believe Alex mental toughness makes up for him not being a natural. With the offensive additions, and playing in the same system back to back years for what I believe is the first time in his pro career, let’s give him a chance. No more excuses after this.

    Alex is our guy. I’ve heard nothing but the good he’s done in training camp all off season. Folks tend to forget coming back from 20 down against the Eagles, the 4th down touchdown to Walker in Detroit, scoring TWICE against the Saints in the playoffs. Alex was a championship caliber QB last year, and he’ll only get better this year. It wasn’t Alex that lost the NFCC game, it was our wideouts. 1 reception for 3 yards, and Williams fumbling. That’s all behind us. We’ve got nothing but good going for this team this year. Quit complaining about Alex. Or follow another team.

    well there seems to be a lot of alex is this or alex is that in these comments is giving him 7 years to prove himself a long time sure but at the end of the day he is still the quarterback, is he a great or elite quarterback? no but he is still the quarterback and after the years of nolan and singletary loading all the blame on his shoulders because he’s the qb the face if you will instead of doing what good coaches do they took the easy out. its an unfortunate reality that defensive coordinators turned head coaches sort of neglect the offense in favor of the defense (i do realize there are exceptions to that).i will give nolan and co props for laying the blueprint for the defense we have now but also put the carpet of shame at their doorstep for neglecting the offense. and through all of this alex has persevered mentally and to that i say cheers. over the last season and a half we finally got to see glimpses of him getting it and moving forward. i would suggest that some of the fans do that as well after all no one is perfect no one is the best at anything there is always room for improvement so why not just sit back and enjoy all the positive steps forward that our team has made and hope that we see alex and company take the next step forward as a team

    The way I see it, if we had Brees or Brady or Manning, we wouldnt have the rest of our team. I like our team and I like Alex as our Qb.By the end of 2013, Alex will earn an extension and if its a big one, there goes our team! Unless the cap goes up then.

    @ 11 years mental toughness is measured by how how react to criticism or losing something along those lines.. Alex hasn’t given up.. Hasn’t blamed the receivers or the coordinators he had.. He just kept showing up and trying.. he took a pay reduction.. He wants to earn his spot.. Its not about money for him.. He chose to stay in SF instead of run away even tho the fans were booing him every game.. That’s mental toughness..

    And if you watch any games you can see he has multiple plays to choose from at the line of scrimmage.. He made a number of plays on the fly.. So think before you speak lil boy

    In my opinion, am i wrong or some comments appear to be from a same conference team fan who is jealous about not having i dont say elite but an averge QB and im wrong even calling smith average cause he was outstanding last season im just trying to make a point. Flynn/Jackson? Bradford? Kolb/Skelton?, again in my opinon i have to say the NINERS have the best QB of the conference, so all of you who are not a NINER team fan or at least your posts show that, your teams also have a home page and articles you can trash talk!

    ps. congrats to Iupati on his newborn child (our next pro bowler, i hope he deserves it)

Lets see, the defense had a couple of good days of dominance over the offense, today the offense came out and handled the defense, and Alex was a great part of that come back. Progress, and improvements. kudos to Alex, kudos for the defense for giving it raw to the offense.

    alex smith isnt an elite QB but i would say he is pretty good now that he has a coach that will take time to train him instead of throwing him in an F-ed up franchise and think he would magicly win he only threw 5 picks in the regular season and did you not watch the saints game that was pretty clutch to me and now he got a whole offseason with jim i dont know about these guys who think alex smith sucks maybe you should do some research and i dont wanna hear about the last 7 years and i dont wanna hear him compared to aron rogers the QB who sat for 5 or 6 years behind brett that my 2cents

    Nuff SAID on ALEX he’s the man. I’m out this season as he has, or as COACH HARBAUGH recently said. Many of you look CLUELESS and that would include ANYONE at this point who has ripped on ALEX. You simply didn’t understand the game of football but you wanted to show people you thought you did, but YOU DON’T.

    That argument is over. Alex loses his job only by injury.

    Good for him to have made you folks that bashed him, simply look like what COACH HARBAUGH has labeled you, CLUELESS.

    to eleven and jeromy…..i’d like to see you on the field and do what the QB’s have to do…..A lot of big talk that you probably wouldn’t be able to do for 5 minutes. I give Alex props for sticking with it when you have a new coach every other year and a new offensive coordinator every year. Especially when they aren’t offensively driven. since Harbaugh is there now, he’s actually getting taught what he should have been taught when he was first drafted. It’s all about coaching….

    Things are looking good so far. You guys have to remember the offense are playing against one of the best, THE BEST, defense in the league so imagine what our offense would look like when they face other teams defense.

    Our defense is one of the toughest in the league, imagine how good our offense will get when they played against other opposing defense. Yep things are looking good. GO Niners!!!

    First of all don’t listen to the haters anyone, there just unintelligent bandwagon football fans that like to think of the worst in life and sports. A positive guy like myself would say after winning the NFC West, getting many Niners to the pro-bowl, and having 6 Niners make the top 100 list we are feelin on top of the world compared to our last 8 seaons. After seeing our potential and progress last year the 9ers are working even harder and we even added lots of great talent to a team already uniquer individuals.

    -Friday the NFL will get a taste of the new 9ers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
