How will training camp in Cortland NY benefit the Jets in 2012?

Camaraderie

The Jets were constantly criticized about their locker room issues in 2011. But how bad were the issues really? LaDanian Tomlinson thinks the media took it to another level, but the thought that we could keep these lingering issues a secret forever is just preposterous.

“It got out of hand toward the end of the season. That is why it got out in the media. This is something that happened (in the) third or fourth week of the season, that was going on, and nobody knew about it because the players kept it under wraps. Until we went on that losing streak and guys started to speak up and speak out about certain things.” -LaDanian Tomlinson

The best way to fix any locker room issue is to first and foremost, get the team together as a whole. Where? Well, Florham Park (Jets Practice Facility) isn’t cutting it. The place the Jets need to be is Cortland, NY. We need to get every Jets player on a bus and in Cortland for camp this summer. And we will.

Creating a new atmosphere for the team is crucial. To spend time away from home with one another and learn every personality trait beneath their labeled perception is an excellent way to build trust, loyalty, and dedication for one another. We (as fans) want to see every player on this team have the same mentality going into the 2012 season. And that mentality is– that everyone in the organization, from top to bottom, will give everything they’ve got for the person beside them. We want to see each player put it on the line for the guy next to him….the guy with the Jets logo on the side of their helmet. Building team chemistry comes in training camp, where blood, sweat, and tears are shed. What better place to build that chemistry than Cortland, NY? Besides, that’s where Rex Ryan established a new culture for our team and eventually helped us get to back to back AFC Championships in 2009 and 2010.

    building camaraderie is key for this team and going to a site and having the team live together will either kill or cure the problem.  Rex & Sparano will need to step up and lead.  they will need be careful and create confusion or chaos, the media will be watching and watching closely.  where they have training camp can be a factor, how they run training camp will determine the outcome.

    Having the training camp at a location where the team can live together can create the camaraderie the team needs.  Rex and Tony S. need to step up and lead and avoid creating any confusion or chaos.  the media will be watching and watching closely and will look to create controversy for a story.  Where they have training camp can be a positive factor, how training cam is run will determine the outcome.
