Passing game makes strides

Zips quarterbacks completed 22 of 33 passes and avoided interceptions Saturday in the team's first of several two-a-days.
As an Akron fan, you should root for the passing game to improve. Yes, that's obvious. In several aspects of the game -- the defensive line rushing the quarterback, for example -- success means failure on the other side of the ball. Because the Zips' secondary is established as a strength, any progress in moving the ball through the air is a welcomed sight.
Despite the loss of Sean Hakes, three quarterback are playing in camp. True freshman Matt Rodgers has impressed many people, from what I hear (although I've seen nothing to lead me to jump on his bandwagon). I plan to attend camp a few days next week so I'll talk to J.D. Brookhart about that then.
Here's some bad news, however. In the team's updated roster, two names are left off: junior defensive lineman Craig Truax and true freshman defensive back Da-Von Moore. I'll find out more about that, too.

    Charlie Frye played well tonight, completing 12 of 15 passes for 122 yards in the Browns' 16-12 win over Kansas City. Derek Anderson's stats fell short (7-of-16 for 76 yards). Neither quarterback threw a touchdown or interception. It was not enough of a discrepancy for Romeo Crennel to name a starting quarterback.
    Former Zips defensive lineman Kiki Gonzalez got some playing time and performed well, logging three tackles. Gonzalez signed a two-year deal with the Chiefs, but that doesn't mean he made the team.
