The rookie finally got him.

It took until Day 11 of camp, but Karl Joseph recorded his first interception in team drills when he leaped high in the air to pick off Derek Carr in the end zone.

“Finally,” Carr joked. “Great player. Karl is a great player. I’m excited that he’s on our team and healthy. He looks great. He’s going to be a great player.”

The interception came during red zone work and it was such an athletic play that Carr didn’t have a ton of issues with it, even if he does loathe turning over the ball.

“He jumps five feet off the ground and snags it 10 feet off the air,” Carr said. “I’m good with that, because I know that I don’t have to throw against him.”

* Carr knows he won’t play a ton in Friday’s game, but he’s still approaching it the same as any other contest.

“Just play my heart out,” Carr said. “That’s every time you play a preseason, regular season, playoffs, Super Bowl, whatever. Hopefully we’ll get there. no matter what it is, I’m going to play my heart out. Whether it’s one play or 90 plays, anytime you put an NFL jersey on, put helmet on, it’s time to go.”

* Running back Jalen Richard didn’t practice Wednesday for undisclosed reasons. The undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss has had a solid camp and is listed as the No. 4 running back and No. 3 kick returner on the depth chart and figures to be one of the players to watch during the exhibition season.

* Linebacker Neiron Ball was back at practice after missing Tuesday’s session, a non-padded practice ahead of Friday’s exhibition opener. Safety Jimmy Hall missed his fourth straight day.

* Cooper showed off his tremendous footwork when he ran a hitch route that sent cornerback TJ Carrie to the ground as he made the catch. Crabtree also had a tremendous grab when he jumped over the coverage of Dexter McDonald to haul in a pass. Seth Roberts added to the day of highlights for receivers when he made a leaping catch over Kenneth Durden.

* Carrie added a highlight of his own when came off the edge to block a Giorgio Tavecchio field goal attempt that he picked up and took to the house.

    Puff, puff …. dammit, reload.

    Anyway, whoever is producing this show, it should be good after Midnight PDT emanating from the North East40 to 50 degrees above the horizon.
    Once a decade type show.
    120 to 200 per hour.
    Not a rock and roll light show, but a couple a minute with the occasional fireball is fun for some.
    Halfway to zenith, which is straight up.
    Palm of your hand is about 10 degrees at arms length.
    Unless I’ve been tricked on that one as well!

  • R8der4evr

    Jesus is in charge of the show
    Kenny may be on the crew

  • careful, some bloggers here don’t believe in outer space…

  • LOL

    Sure we do
    God created it

  • you might. but you clearly don’t speak for everyone.

  • RaidingTexas

    Where did this God guy hang out before there was space?

  • MsoRaider343

    Are they going to build a new stadium in Vegas?

  • and who created him/her/it?

    Eh?

  • RaidingTexas

    Looking forward to this Rogue One movie. Should be a helluva lot better than the movie from last year.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    If he was god, why not?

    we only know about our little ridiculously vast universe.
    There could be an infinity of them.

  • R8der4evr

    Easier to explain than something being evolved from nothing.

  • MsoRaider343

    Is your iPad hungry?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    The previous god.
    Ease up, EP, Cosmology is not your forte.

  • RaidingTexas

    Maybe a bunch of invisible strings coalesced into him?

  • BroJackson34

    26 Gold Medals. Go USA!

  • oooo. i beg to differ. this stuff is a passion of mine. not the god part. but the development of the universe part. although God Sr. is interesting to me.

  • STRING THEORY!

  • episode 7? that move was great. I’ve heard some uncomfortable rumblings about rogue one. but i trust that disney will get its act together.

  • R8der4evr

    Just got fired up yesterday
    Been idle

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Yeah,
    8 day llama trek on tap next week.
    I’m worried about me, and I’m the youngest, and have to do all the work.

  • RaidingTexas

    At one time it was easier to explain that the sun and stars were revolving around the earth.

    I actually didn’t finish watching episode 7. I found it to be painfully bad scripting and acting.

    LOL

  • i absolutely loved it. i know some people weren’t huge fans, but the overwhelming consensus was that it was a great movie. so if you thought that was garbage, the bar youre setting might be too specific? i dunno. to each their own.

  • true story

  • R8der4evr

    You know it bro

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    You want to take me on?
    Been a passion of mine since before you were born.
    My Astronomy magazine subscription may be older than you.
    Was definitely reading Clarke, Asimov, and Heinlein before you were born.

    And I’d vastly prefer this discussion to the other one!

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    It makes me froth, and then relax, let it go…

  • R8der4evr

    In perfect balance and time
    It evolved too
    LOL

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Old stuff.

  • no need to take anyone on. not trying to outdo you. but i definitely have a big passion for this stuff. i’ve taken a bunch of online courses on it. Kahn Academy has a great lesson plan!

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Easier is often the easier path to take.
    right or wrong.

    I suppose. Episode IV was cheesy due to a low budget. Seemed more authentic and therefore more enjoyable.

    Episode VII was amazing special effects (I give it that much) loaded with intentional cheesiness. I just didn’t like it.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    took experimental astronomy in ’72 at Cal poly SLO. worked with Feynman’s co author at Cal Tech building the 1/10th mm, 10 meter radio dishes in Owen’s Valley.
    I got some bona fides, my friend!

  • RaidingTexas

    Can only speak to where I’ve been. But yes, I’d expect it to be spectacular up there, too.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    But, then again, we were just chasing false clues left by the debil!

  • as i said. to each their own.i think rogue one should be good. but i’ve heard some things that made me nervous. plus it’s a side story. The Episodes are still the main focus and i expect them to be the better of the movies. kinda like an Avengers movie vs one of the Thor movies.

  • BroJackson34

    lmao (refresh)

  • lol!

  • RaidingTexas

    Yeah, I’m hopeful for Rogue One. Looks dark. I like that.

  • damn. that’s so rad! i’m not nearly that official. tho the access to learning this stuff is much more available now and i try to take advantage.
