Got up sunday morning in siena, walked two miles from hostel to train station. Thought I was going to miss train. train was going to leave at 8:20, had long walk, but made it to station by 8:05. Breathed sigh of relief. Took phone off airplane mode, time suddenly changed to 9:05. Looked at information board, train I wanted to take was gone. Realized the clock shifted ahead an hour the previous night. My entire life, I've been pretty indifferent to daylight savings time. It should die a quick and painful death along with the penny, the imperial system of measurement, the marine corps, and a bunch of other things that have no place in the modern world. Here's an interesting video on daylight savings time. Went to couchsurfing (social media thing for travelers) meetup at a bistro. Talked quite a bit to one guy from california. He had been traveling around europe for a few months, was planning on making a living out of it (traveling all over, teaching english here, doing odd jobs on workaway there, scoring cheap rides on blablacar, ect). This guy claimed he once ate 44 deserts in one sitting, ate 13 meals in one day, can drink an entire bottle of vodka without getting even slightly drunk, drove from LA to portland on his motorcycle without stopping to pee once, can be out in sun...
He has an easy, quick throwing motion, and the ball flies off his hand. He is a quick, physical runner who makes good decisions on options and isn't afraid to slam into the line on 3rd-and-short or at the goal line. Bennett has NFL-caliber velocity and can drive the ball deep without getting too much air under it. He gets into brief grooves where he fits lasers into tight places and looks like an undiscovered first-round pick. Bennett punted 11 times in 2014 and averaged 45. 8 gross yards per punt. If you can name a mechanical or fundamental flaw, Bennett will exhibit it at least once per game. Sometimes, he does not appear to have a good grip on the ball when he cocks to throw. He throws interceptions or near-interceptions in bunches, because that's what happens when you stare down a receiver, then over- or through two training camps as an extra quarterback who also took reps in practice as a return man and special teams... Splitting reps among many positions won't turn Bennett into a consistent passer, but it may be the easiest way for him to translate his unique athletic skill set into a spot on a roster. This quarterback class is not exactly loaded, and Bennett's raw skills may make him more worthy of a late-round and his mother's health issues hurt Crockett's academic performance in high school and may have kept some bigger programs away.
