With the final open workout of OTAs in the books, seemed like time to look back at practice, and see what types of vibes we may or may not haven been able to. As usual, this is based on the Twitter entries from reporters in attendance:

  • Geno Smith with the “one’s”.  The Jets are nowhere near a decision at the quarterback position, so this is not a surprise at all.  Sanchez and Geno going back and forth from the one’s and the two’s will be par for the course until a decision is made.
  • Joe McKnight  working, but not full speed.  Good to see Joe out there on the field, but it can feel like a tease if he can’t go full speed.  Cromartie is there to help with kick returns, as well as eventually Mike Goodson, so the depth is there.  It’s just disappointing from a fan’s perspective, as Joe is a fan favorite.
  • Drops all over the offensive side.  This is not such a dynamic WR corp that they can afford to drop a lot of passes.  That is what they did today, and coach Ryan was not thrilled about it.  Stephen Hill had more than his fair share, and needs to cut it out so he make the next step in this league.
  • Experience wins over strength, sometimes.  On-lookers mentioned a pancake block put on Sheldon Richardson by none other than Vlad Ducasse.  Maybe he can do something right.

There you have it, news and notes from practice.

Stay tuned, tomorrow morning, Mike Nash will be here after attending the OTA session, to share some personal observations.
