It was a rainy practice today… and that’s being generous. I was drenched. But hey, that’s part of the game! I took as many pictures as I could… without breaking my camera, of course!
Anyway, here are some notes from today’s practice. I broke it down with the offense first and the defense second.
Sparano is in command:
Offensive Coordinator Tony Sparano looked like he owned the offense. It was almost like rapid-fire out there, and the tempo was better than ever for this Jets offense.
Here he is, barking out his play-call.
Before I get into details, let me set things straight. Sanchez’s arm, delivery, and accuracy looked incredibly better than Tebow’s…. and it was obvious. With that being said, both of them looked like they belong in the new run-heavy and vertical-passing offense.
Specifically, Sanchez had a great command of the 1st Team offense, and his game looks to be on the rise.
Mark looked like the natural leader and each of his passes had a nice zip. The picture above is just one of his many bullets.
However, that’s not to say that Tebow didn’t look like the “football player” that he displayed he was last season. He looks like a sharp addition thus far. Regardless of what position he’s playing, he works hard on every down and plays the game with great intensity.
Will we be seeing any of this? Tim Tebow, at Wide Receiver?
No, but what about Cromartie?
Antonio Cromartie, playing Wide Receiver?
There has been a lot of speculation recently, whether or not Rex Ryan will use Cromartie on offense. It’s difficult to say that it’ll ever be ruled out. The threat of Antonio as a receiver, really hit me today, as I watched him run routes in DB drills. He really caught my eye. He runs like a deer… I barely caught a picture!
