Thoughts and Observations: New York Jets’ Training Camp 8/14/13


Today was the Jets’ final open training camp practice from Cortland, NY, as tomorrow’s session is closed. Let’s get right to the thoughts and observations:

  • SANTONIO HOLMES RUNS: For everyone else to see, Santonio Holmes ran windsprints of 50-60 yards.  Granted, it was just straight line running, no cuts.  But still, a good sign that Holmes is starting to get there.
  • GENO NOT ACCURATE: As far as the QB competition goes, today was not a banner day for Geno Smith.  Yes, following the QB rotation, he took most of the snaps with the first string.  It did not go well, as he threw four interceptions this morning.
  • MARK GETS BY WITH HELP FROM HIS FRIENDS: One particularly nice play was noted, as Sanchez hooked up with his old friend Braylon Edwards for a 30 yard TD pass.  Shades of 2009-2010 on this final open session.
  • GATES IN RED: Clyde Gates, he of excellent camp, was back at practice, with a non-contact red jersey on.  He took a brutal hit on Sunday, good to see him back to work.

That’s it for the final observations from open camp.  Remember, the Jets will have an open practice session for fans to attend at Florham Park on the 21st.

    I’m a big Rex Ryan supporter so it pains me to hear what he said today about Geno, namely, that he was brutal. Really Rex, you couldn’t have softened it a bit. And then you wonder why the media turns what you say into headlines. Absolutely the media are a bunch of hacks and clowns but you make their job way to easy.

    Sanchez hits Edwards for 30 yds!! Holmes is running. Gates is back on the field. Geno was inaccurate. If those are the highlights of this practice, then I guess it was a “brutal” practice! I’d like to read some where that the “D” was dominating, but most reports have been pretty quiet there .I haven’t read much about Coples conversion to linebacker, Or how the rookie Richardson is shaping up? Concerns me a little since the “D” normally starts off quicker then the “O”. I can only hope that means our offensive line is playing well! GIO JETS!!

      It has been a little tougher this year, since they are limiting what the media can/cannot tweet, report…etc. I am guessing that no news is good news?
