It’s back to work for the Jets today at SUNY Cortland. They worked out for the first time since Monday, and here are some thoughts and observations, based on what the reporters in attendance had to say:
- He may be guarding him on the field, but Antonio Cromartie might want to consider staying away from Santonio Holmes, because he is starting to pop off at the mouth just like he does. His comment that he is the second best WR on the team, based on quotes after practice, has irritated other wide receivers. The Jets don’t need another problem in the locker room.
- The offense was outdueled by the defense again, as evidenced by the mediocre days by Sanchez and Tebow. Don’t be too alarmed, this is to be expected. The defense is typically ahead of the offense early, and the Jets are learning a new offense. Give it time.
- The progression of Bilal Powell has been wonderful, as much as it has been surprising. Nobody expected anything out of him, and by some accounts, he is having a better camp than Shonn Greene. He is not going to seize the starting job, but he is in the discussion for the third down spot, behind Shonn. Good job so far out of Bilal.
- Stephen Hill is doing a nice job in his rookie training camp. Reports come in of great catch after great catch. He is on his way to starting on the outside, opposite Santonio Holmes.
