Notes to take away from OTA’s today

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Wide Receivers had too many drops:

  • Getting Mark Sanchez to grow as a QB doesn’t always revolve around accurate thrown passes. The Receivers need to get their act together, because Sanchez can use all the help he can get, as he prepares for a turnaround season in his 4th year.

Kyle Wilson shows signs that he is progressing:

  • Kyle is in his 3rd year as a Cornerback for the Jets. He is doing well so far in OTA’s. He picked off a ball, thrown by Sanchez, intended for Dustin Keller. We really need Wilson to play big for us this year, because if he can’t, teams will have no problem picking on #20 and more importantly, avoiding #24.

 Tebow is not the best practice player:

  • What else is new? Tebow did go 4-5 passing at one point, including a nicely completed pass to Santonio Holmes.

Bart Scott was loud:

  • Again, what else is new, HA. Though there weren’t any serious fights, Bart played the instigator role, starting some pushing & shoving. Scott was also seen barking calls/orders and covering some ground. He plans to prove to the coaching staff that he DOES belong on the field with the starting defense.

Yeremiah Bell looks like a great offseason pickup (so far):

  • Bell intercepted Mark Sanchez–a diving pick on a ball in which Dustin Keller couldn’t hold on to. Bell has had a couple of picks already during this off-season’s OTA’s. That is pretty impressive, considering he is brand new to the system, and was recently signed just a couple of weeks ago. It’s really important that Bell gets a good grasp of the defense, to give us some insurance–if or when LaRon Landry’s durability becomes an issue

    Sanchez needs to show he is the leader of this team and everyone else will then step up.  He already has his O-Line supporting him they showed that last year.  The QB owns that huddle and sets the tone.  This is Sanchez make or break year and i think he knows it.  Look for him to play big.

    Thanks for the comment BigRalph!
    I totally agree with you regarding Sanchez’s make or break year. You’re right, he needs to step it up, and the best way for him to do that is to be a more consistent passer. That starts in OTA’s- NOW. I expect him to practice a little bit better from here on out, or he will really hear it from T. Sparano!
    As for leading the team, I’d have to say he has been doing quite well thus far (organizing workouts in Cal. and such). But being a leader also means leading by example on the field. If he steps up his game on the field (even in practice) I think we will then see everyone else step up– just like you said!
