While Bates is an equal-opportunity yeller, Carroll has clearly incurred more of his wrath than any other player on defense. On Thursday, Bates yanked Carroll from an 11-on-11 drill after Carroll held receiver Donald Driver on a play, shouting to his assistants, "Get somebody in there that won't hold."
Bates was all over Carroll again Friday, when he was caught in no man's land on a pass to Driver in the left flat during a 7-on-7 drill and when he dropped an interception on a deep ball to Antonio Chatman.
Said Lionel Washington: "Maybe that's what Ahmad needs, somebody to really set a fire under his butt and get him going."

Am hopin' Bates' approach does the trick. Lord knows the boxing gloves didn't work. Now is the time for this 1st round pick.
