CORTLAND, N.Y.- After an off day on Sunday, the Jets hit the practice field at Cortland on Monday well rested. However, it seems the off day may have done more harm then good because today’s practice was a rough one filled with penalties, turnovers and the level of play was not up to par with the first four days of practices.
“Sometimes you give guys you know an off day and things… It’s like I don’t get it you know you’re not as sharp, the focus doesn’t seem to be there. We came out of practice, we started pretty good and then at the end of it kind of waned a little” said head coach Rex Ryan.
With that, here are some other things to takeaway from Monday’s practice.

On August 1st, the Jets will launch a new rewards program, know as “Jets Rewards” for season-ticket holders. Part of the program will allow fans to accumulate points throughout the season and redeem those points for prizes.
Instead of the traditional paper ticket Jets’ season-ticket holders will receive a small wallet sized card with their tickets already preloaded on to their card.
“Where in the past, season ticket holders would get a packet of 10 tickets for every seat now they will get one card.” According to Senior Vice President of Marketing and Fan Engagement Seth Rabinowitz, “That card is a smart card has a little microchip in it and it comes preloaded with all of your games.” Read the rest of this entry »

CORTLAND, N.Y.- The Jets finished up day two of the 2014 training camp on a warm and breezy Friday afternoon. The team had a lot to be excited about including the debut of Jason Babin the former 2011 All-Pro defensive end after signing him to a two-year contract on July 23rd. Furthermore the always optimistic head coach Rex Ryan was happy with the effort and play his team showed today saying, “Practice went pretty well” during his post practice press conference. Specifically Ryan singled out the play of rookie wide receiver Shaq Evans and rookie linebacker Trevor Riley.
“I think sometimes when you’re seeing young players, I like seeing a guy rebound and see what they’re made of, if a guy has a poor practice or maybe didn’t go great to see how they respond (and) we had a couple guys I think that had a much better practice today with the young guys and I think Shaq did (rebound) and Trevor Riley did (rebound.)” Read the rest of this entry »

FLORHAM PARK, N.J.- On a blistering Wednesday afternoon, The Jets concluded day two of week two of voluntary OTA workouts. While the day had its good moments like the play of rookie wide receiver Jalen Saunders who received praise from both Geno Smith and Michael Vick, head coach Rex Ryan was not pleased with his team’s efforts.
“There were a lot of mistakes that were made today.” Ryan said, “We had like six or seven penalties today we were blowing coverages (and) blowing assignments and it’s a good thing we’re not playing because it was kind of ugly out there today.”
Ryan was also concerned that the player’s mental mindset was affecting the production on the field saying, “What you’ll see sometimes is a guy would be thinking and the physical part that he’s done, that’s easy all of a sudden shows up messy.” Specifically, Ryan signaled out the struggles of rookie tight end Jace Amaro. Saying, “All you gotta do is look at Jace, Jace had like three drops today… that’s where, clearly, a guy is thinking so much that all of a sudden you lose the focus on what job one is (which) is to catch the football.” Read the rest of this entry »
