If you have not had a chance to read it yet, take a look at the analysis of today’s workout by JETSerious by clicking here.
Now, some reactions based on his, and other’s accounts today:
- Love the pace of the practices. I talked about this during minicamp, the Jets got very slow during 2011. Tony Sparano is the opposite of slow. He is moving the practice along at a great pace, and that keeps the defense on it’s heels. This can only be a positive.
- Clearly based on everything, Mark Sanchez is taking control of the offense. He knows what is going on, and he is doing everything he can to let the world know that he is number one. His mechanics are better, and his throws are just more accurate than Tim Tebow. Tebow learned today about what it is like to play in NY. If the heckling is any indication, the Tebow honeymoon period is over.
- Unfortunately, I am not surprised to hear that Eric Smith continues to get beaten down the field. Anyone who has watched this team cannot be thrilled with his pass defense. Luckily, LaRon Landry and Yeremiah Bell are in the fold, because clearly they are getting the job done.
- It also sounded like Aaron Maybin (pictured right, taken by JETserious) had a huge day on defense. To me this is not the least bit surprising, as we have discussed my belief that his motivation will lead him to a huge season.
