Discussion Topic: Battles to Watch at 2013 New York Jets Training Camp

Time to hear from you guys.

Earlier today, we finished our training camp preview by covering the offensive line. To refresh your memory, I felt that the biggest, and most interesting battle along the line will be the battle for the right guard spot, with several players fighting for one starting job.

Then we obviously have the QB battle, which will garner most of the attention, especially from the mainstream media. I think we can all agree that we hope that the decision is made quickly so the attention can go somewhere else.

The RB depth chart still has to play itself out, so does the WR chart. Will Santonio be healthy? Will a UDFA emerge as a budding star going into 2013? A lot of questions are left to be answered.

Now I want to hear from you guys. Strictly on the offensive side of the football, what are you most looking forward to in training camp? What battles interest you? I want everyone to share their opinion below, and let’s get a good discussion going about training camp, from the offensive side of the ball.

    i’d like to see these rookies have a great camp and make the starting lineup: milliner, richardson, winters and bohannon. i’d like to see these guys have a great camp and earn serious playing time: hayden smith and rogers. i’d like to see these guys disappear after august never to be heard from again: gates, mcelroy, hilliard, and reulands. in order so that we may never again have to hear suggestions that we sign lloyd, britt, owens, johnson, burress et.al. i’d like to see hill and holmes solidify the receiving corps. and just to perpetuate the circus atmosphere i’d like to see that two-way kicker take both the punting and placekicking jobs. is there a competition for the owner position?

      God I would love to see competition at the owner position! Idzik make it happen.

        i made this point a while back, dustin, and it’s something nobody seems to realize or if they realize it i never happen to see it in print or hear it in conversation. woodhead johnson, for all his billions, has never hired anything but rookie head coaches and gms. that, in itself, is one thing, however he has the patience of a six-year old once they’re hired. you can’t hire a rookie head coach and gm and expect them to lead you to the super bowl right away and then when it doesn’t hapen fire them and start all over. you wind up simply grooming the guys for their next jobs while running in place. if you’re gonna hire rookies you’ve got to realize there’s a learning curve and give them time to grow into the job, and if you’re not then it’s best to make yourself available to interview the best possible candidates at the appropriate time instead of going on vacation. like he needs a vacation. from what? shopping for a green tie? supporting romney? peddling psls? if it was something he did once it woud be one thing but he did it with mangini, edwards, they’ve all been rookies as have his gms. and if that’s not enough every time he opens his mouth he shows us he is the johnson family’s version of james dolan. yuk.

          WOW I would love to watch you scream this in limpys face, you really nailed it….I guess the only thing I could add is that limpy is more concerned about getting the Jets in the paper than he is about getting us in the playoffs. Romneys not taking us to the f#cking superbowl, we need an owner that loves football. Send limpy on permanent vacaion, let Idzik run the show.

      I don’t believe in Holmes. When he got hurt he did not have to toss the ball away like he did and turn the ball over. I have seen many players go down and not do what he did with the ball. It shows that he did not care about the team but only himself.

      • matr dontelli iii

        I agree about that turnover. It made me about as sick as some of the other bad ones did, including the end of the Tennessee game as well as the ones on thanksgiving. Holmes does a lot of stuff I don’t like but he is trying to help the young guys. I think his heart is on the right place but he’s kinda got a short circuit in his head. I think he tries and cares but kinda gives up when he gets frustrated.
