Geno 2s vs 1s defense

Smith complete to Cumberland for 18. Powell stuffed by entire d line for 1. Smith to Edwards for 6 had some zip on it. Smith to Gates for 6. Offsides on Kenrick Ellis. Inside handoff to Powell for 4. Span with a nice cut for 6 negated by a holding penalty. Smith passed bobbled and dropped by Spadola. Pass to Kerley incomplete off of his hands.

Smith 3 for 5 30 yards total

Sanchez vs 2nd team D

Double reverse to Gates destroyed by Douzable for a loss of 7. Sanchez with the bomb to Hill who clearly pushed off on Lankster.

QB Totals
Smith 9 for 15 for 92 yards 0 TD 0 INT

Sanchez 7 for 14 for 83 yards 1 TD 1 INT

McElroy 5 for 5 for 113 yards and 2 TDS (vs 3rd team only not vs any starters)

Highlights Smith in control on first drive not fazed by pressure in his face. Smith drove better with 2nd unit as well he had more rhythm and better control. Smith won the day today by making fewer mistakes and consistency. He looked the part.

Sanchez not in rhythm with 2nd team offense. Sanchez had 1 good drive with first team offense but had a bad overthrow to end it then got picked by Cro on the next series. Last play bomb to Hill was a pretty throw.

Milliner good pass breakup. Nothing from Richardson, Wilkerson, Coples of note. Barnes got some pressure. A ton of corner and safety blitzes.

Gates flashed well is running good routes and is quick. Kerley was open all day made a few catches but had a drop or 2 as well. Spadola has serious talent especially down the field. Powell ran strong, broke tackles and cut well. Span was quick through the hole as well.

Davis played multiple LB positions. Leger Douzable stuffed the run and pressured the QB. Harris was very quick on a pass breakup to Powell.

McElroy was on target to 3rd stringers.

First team offense line played well, second needs a lot of work with penalties and flow.

    I’m calling it, Smith is going to be the opening day starter.

  • Frank Antonelli

    Mark better get his act together or he’ll end up third string.

  • Paul Newbold

    Thanks for the report

    I was there at the scrimmage and the defense looked very fast –Ricky Sapp laid a few brutal hits and was in the backfield all night—defense as a whole looked fast and hit hard. QB report–I got there at the end of Geno’s 1st drive but what I saw was ok–Geno didnt hit any big downfield passes mostly short stuff–lots of pressure from the D front 7 on both Smith and Sanchez -they didnt have much time. Geno does hold onto the ball a little long sometimes but so does Aaron Rodgers. he will get better with experience. Looking at Geno and Sanchez 20 feet away standing next to each other they are about the same height 6’2 , maybe Geno a bit taller and a thicker lower body-huge thighs and butt for a QB- its where he gets more torque on his fastball has a strong arm. Sanchez actually looked better then last yrs Green and white scrimmage-he made better faster throws, no double pumping hitching wasted indecisive movements -Sanchez ended the practice with a nice 50+ yard bullet td pass to Hill. McElroy looked good also but it was 3rd stringers vs 3rd stringers.

      nice job joe. remarkably fair and balanced. i only say that because i know where your heart is. thanks for the report.

      • Joe Willie

        like Howard Cosell —-I tell it like it is ;)

    my concern with geno is the whole world is saying he holds the ball too long. we know he had a bunch of fumbles (32?) in college. the likely result of the two could be a problem. i’d like to see him start getting rid of the ball quicker, then i’d be more comfortable if he were named the starter.

    • Craig Hoffman

      He did not hold the ball too long yesterday he was more decisive especially on the first drive. I believe him when he says that he is taking the extra second in practice when he won’t get hit to make the right read and throw so he trains himself and as he trains himself he will be able to speed that up in a real game.

  • Vincent Hall

    Hate to say it, but it sounds like it’s leaning more towards Geno Smith. The longer it plays out is because either A. They are trying to give Sanchez a little longer to show he’s the starter. B. They are taking a longer look at Geno to start. Either way, Sanchez has not done enough to prove anything, and he likely has 2 weeks left.
