Day 1 of practice for Bill O'Brien

Bill O'Brien met with the media yesterday for the first time since hitting the field for spring ball.

O'Brien compared spring ball to mini camps at the NFL level because it's really about experimenting. Having the ability to practice someone at one position for a little while, and then move him to another position to see how they can get them in the best position to help the team.

The new head coach explained that the spring game will be used just like a game scenario for both the staff and players. Coaches will be in the press box, officials on the field, coaches relaying things on the field, special teams being utilized...making the operation as game like as possible, from top to bottom.

"If hard work is any measure of how good we're going to be, then we're on the right road" O'Brien added.
