Broyles: “Guys are starting to catch on and play like themselves.”

“Today was same old, same old: woke up, ate breakfast, had a team meeting talking about day two and the schedule, then we split up into offense/defense to go over day two install, got a little more in depth into the playbook. Had a little review of yesterday, watched film and went out to practice. Guys are starting to catch on and play like themselves and not really worry about the playbook too much, so it looked a little bit better today.

“The facility is nice. We get here at 6-7 o’clock in the morning and leave here at 9 at night. Everything we need is here. I was texting a friend last night and I said the only thing we don’t have here is a bed. We have everything we need: locker room, film, fields – everything you need football-wise. The food is good too; today there was a healthy choice, chicken, and a corn dog – I had to go with that today.

“Therapy – it hurts, but it’s good. Yesterday I worked out in front of the coaches and the doctors and did a little circuit to see how I was. Today was just going back to the strength part of it, doing some weights. It’s good that they get high on me and it’s always good to mix it up. I started therapy when I was out in California, they have a whole different deal there, then I went back to school and that was a whole different deal and now I’m here with a whole different deal. It’s good to mix it up and shock your muscles a little bit.

“Getting the grasp of the playbook, that’s the most important thing right now. Fitting in with these guys, we’re all rookies, so we’re all on the same page right now being new to everything. Really I’m just building friendships, learning the playbook and getting to know the staff before the older guys get here, which is next week I believe.

“I’m excited for the vets to come in. We watch film on them and it’s crazy, you see them on game day, on TV, and you get to go in there and watch film of them on the practice field and see the connection. Now we’re about to sit in the same meeting room as them, it’s going to be a good deal and I’m sure I’ll learn a lot from them.”
