A HAND FOR BOLLER
Quarterback Kyle Boller floated a perfect 44-yard pass over cornerback Willie Gaston into the hands of rookie wide receiver Yamon Figurs. That play caused the crowd to erupt in applause.
A GOOD READ
The secondary seemed to read the routes the receivers were running and jumped on them with moderate success. Cornerbacks Samari Rolle and Chris McAlister each grabbed interceptions, and cornerback Evan Oglesby ended practice with another interception.
BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO
Linebacker Joe Martin nearly added his name to that list of defensive players with an interception. But wide receiver Mark Clayton jostled Martin just enough to make him to drop a pass thrown by quarterback Steve McNair.
"Just remember which games count and which games don't. It's like riding a new bike. You want to make sure all the neighbors see it. The race isn't until early September."

Offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden (turf toe) and linebackers Mike Smith (shoulder surgery) and Dan Cody (knee surgery) are on the physically-unable-to-perform list and did not practice.
