Senior Bowl Pre-Game (w/UPDATES)

Stephen Tsai writes that Colt Brennan was voted team captain by his South teammates.

Here's a Senior Bowl preview from Chris Steuber of Scout NFL Experts.
QB, Colt Brennan – Hawaii (South Team) – Brennan had to defend his 185-pound weigh-in at the beginning of the week to just about everyone. Even though many question his size, you can’t deny that Brennan is a talented QB. He will start the game for the South Team, and with a solid performance many of his critics will reverse their opinion.
A few ways to follow the game, from the Advertiser profile of Colt.
The game will be shown on the NFL Network, a cable channel not carried by Oceanic Time Warner Cable in Hawai'i. It can be seen on satellite systems. Establishments who have satellite — such as Eastside Grill and Red Lions on University — will telecast the game.
This MLive page will apparently be liveblogging the game. And not sure if they will, but NFL.com might have live stats.

UPDATE: Check out this Sportshawaii.com thread by fiveost8, who will try to give a play-by-play.

UPDATE 2: It's halftime and got a few other links. Some live stats from Sportsline.com, and streaming audio via WNSP.com. So far, Colt Brennan is 2 of 4 for 30 yards and 1 INT. He should be coming back in sometime in the 3rd quarter.

UPDATE 3: End of game. Colt ends up 2 for 6 for 30 yards. On to the pro day and combine.

    I watched the game. Was hoping Colt would prove his critics wrong. He did not. He was not alone. None of the QB were outstanding. Booty missed his receivers, fumbled/lost ball on the center's snap, threw an interception in the end zone to kill a scoring drive. Woodson missed his receivers too, and was sacked looking for his receivers from the end zone. Henne threw touchdowns, but he had some miss throws too. Flacco missed as well. Colt was behind on pass to Avery, under-threw a long pass (looked like maybe he thought receiver was not going long). Not sure if it was me, but when Colt missed, commentators more critical. Example: if Colt fumbled from snap, bet they would've went on and on that he fumbled because he lives in the shot-gun. Nothing said about Booty loosing snap.

    Today, the only positve thing about Colt was that he proved he can take regular snaps under center, hand off to his running backs like the other QBs. There were defensive rules for this game (only one linebacker can blitz and safey not allowed to blitz) so this was not a killer defense for the QBs. He does look more comfortable in the shot-gun. I'm glad they predict he'll be drafted late. Good. Maybe a team that lives in the shot-gun like the Colts or New England.

    All Colt has to do now is gain 25 pounds and get busy for the combine.

    QB Ainge 2 minute scoring drive and Henne's two TDs (one was underthrown, receiver had to come back for it)

    North Running back Bernard was a scamping all night.

    South DB Comartie was all over his receivers

    North DE Ellis is a beast

    Off Coordinator calling that last play: after 3 incompletion on 3rd and goal, he called an end-around winning TD with 3 seonds left. Caldwell was met at the 1 yard line, but his momemtum barrelled him into the endzone with zero seconds left. The DAWG kicker made the PAT. Colt was there quickly to congratulate him. That was an ironic site. :-)

    Thanks for the updates and summary. All of you did good to explain. Too bad Colt did not do better. One good thing is he was voted captain. That kind of stuff sums up the "it" factor.

    Eh No. 15, we still BELIEVE. Give'um.

    The practices were televised on Tues and Wed. Colt had some nice passes when they matched up the WRs and DBs. At one time, he hit 3 in a row. Standing on the 45, he would drop back to the 50 and hit his receivers right in the basket, over the DB, about on the 5 yard line. He hit some 25 yd liners and some floaters to his RB out of the backfield. He didn't do as well in the 7 on 7 drills.

    There were a lot of Head coaches in the stands (Steelers, Jags, Bucs, etc). It was said that the practice sessions were a more important audition than the actual game. All 3 QBs praciced about the same.

    Kaimuki boy...tell Tsai Warrior fans to FedEx his favorite Zippys meal for the next 3 months. haha

    thanks for the analysis leo. i was also hoping that colt would have a breakout performance. seems like the coaches liked his practices, and he'll have time to get bigger and stronger for the combine.

    Did local TV sport news show clips?

    Coach Martz was very patient with the QBs (very instructive on the footwork, hips, hitch, eyes, release, etc.) Camera man was right in there and it was very interesting to watch and listen in, as Martz was miked up. He spent a lot of time with Colt. After pratice on Tues, Colt was invited to the commentator's booth and had a very lengthy interview, in which he did very well. Talked about lessons learn from the Sugar Bowl ("punched in the mouth"), his background under center in CA, his weight due to stomach virus, his Comm degree. Commentators seemed to like him as the interview turned into joking like being a Comm major, he will be taking their jobs one day.
