    Mehta Practice Report: Mark Sanchez outshines Tim Tebow at first Jets training camp p

    Before we get to the article...

    I like Sanchez and don't really like Tebow, but I hope that every practice report doesn't devolve into Sanchez v. Tebow. I'm already tired of it and camp just started.


    Mark Sanchez outshines Tim Tebow at first Jets training camp practice
    BY MANISH MEHTA

    CORTLAND – The morning after Mark Sanchez said that he was in “attack mode” entering training camp, the fourth-year quarterback outshined backup Tim Tebow on the first day of practice.

    Sanchez led an offense that looked crisp on the first day of practice, setting the tone with a 40-yard bomb to rookie Stephen Hill on the first play of 11-on-11 team drills. Hill made a diving grab off a deflection from Darrelle Revis.

    Tony Sparano gave a sneak peek of his style by calling plenty of plays to stretch the field. The offense looked much crisper than it did during minicamp last month.

    “Exactly what we wanted,” Sanchez said after practice. “The pace, the tempo, the excitement. That was perfect. Exactly what Coach Sparano was preaching to us last night.” “Exactly what we wanted,” Sanchez said after practice. “The pace, the tempo, the excitement. That was perfect. Exactly what Coach Sparano was preaching to us last night.”

    So, what exactly what was Sparano’s message?

    “We’re going to be physical as all get out,” left guard Matt Slauson relayed.

    Tebow completed a 45-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Kerley that was nullified due to a false start penalty.

    "I felt like it went really well as an offense," Tebow said. "I felt like we did some really good things. I felt pretty good about how I played out there. All of us got a long way to go, including myself... As an offense we made strides. As an individual, I made strides."

    In all, Sanchez finished 7 for 8 with 16 snaps with the first team. (he threw an interception to Revis in 7-on-7 drills). Tebow went 4 for 5 with 12 snaps (including two rushes for 15 yards) with the second team.


    **
    The Jets apparently have a competition at left guard. Incumbent Matt Slauson, who proclaimed himself 100 percent healthy from off-season shoulder surgery, rotated at LG with Vlad Ducasse during practice. Slauson, who also took some reps at right tackle, assumes there’s a competition now at left guard.
    **
    Jeff Otah, who is in limbo until he passes his physical, said that he’s “close… almost there” physically. The Jets acquired Otah from the Panthers for a conditional seventh-round pick provided that he passes a physical within seven days. Otah said that he expects to compete for the starting right tackle spot with Wayne Hunter if healthy. Otah worked with trainers on the field on Friday.
    **
    Nick Folk made all four of his field goal attempts. Josh Brown, who is expected to push him, made 2 of 4 tries. (He missed a 42 and 44-yarder, but made two from 50+ yards).

    **
    Keyshawn Johnson paid a visit to practice and held court with reporters after practice.
    **
    Safety LaRon Landry, who was taken off the PUP list on Thursday, was in uniform, but only worked out with the trainers.
    **
    Rookie linebacker Demario Davis worked with trainers after suffering a hamstring injury during his conditioning test on Thursday.
    **
    Rookie offensive lineman Robert Griffin left practice early after limping off with the trainer.

    Cimini had a far better summary...

    And where the F is your editor dude?

    This is the Tebow effect. Nowhere else would the second string quarterback have a comparative article like this.

    "Tebow completed a 45-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Kerley that was nullified due to a false start penalty."

    I thought we got rid of Mulligan????

    Something is amiss here.

    Tebow:
    Went 4 for 5 with 12 snaps (including two rushes for 15 yards) with the second team.
    Completed a 45-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Kerley that was nullified due to a false start penalty.

    Sanchez:
    Finished 7 for 8 with 16 snaps with the first team.
    Threw an interception to Revis in 7-on-7 drills.

    And the headline reads: "Mark Sanchez outshines Tim Tebow at first Jets training camp practice"?

    Reports from anyone in attendance say Tebow's delivery was bad, his passes lame and Sparano was screaming at him...

    That good enough for you?

    I like hearing about the deep passes. People have the wrong impression of Sparano's offense, it's going to be plenty of shots down the field along with a strong running game, much better strategy than Schottenheimer's phone booth offense.

    Tebow ran a couple of times when Sporano was yelling at him to throw it. He fumbled a snap and botched a handoff to a running back.

    Also, the 1's were working against each other today and Sanchez took every first team snap. Tebow completed his long pass against Lankster, Sanchez completed his against Revis.



    Details. I can't wait for KRL because we'll hear a lot more of them while he's there.

    Exactly, force them to respect the deep passes and the running game can flourish

    and of course we buy into it by posting it here as if it were Jets news! Then we complain about it and hope it does not evolve into an ever day thing! If we stopped posting this stuff maybe the writers would wake up.

    Mark Sanchez is the best quarterback the New York Jets have had since Joe Namath. It does not surprise me at all that he is outshining a guy who was brought aboard to sell tickets and run a gadget play per game.

    Exactly. Sparano's offenses usually rank within the top 10 in regards to plays of 20+ yards. Anyone who knows anything about Sparano (which I see you do) understands that he establishes the run game early on, in order to set up the vertical passing attack later on.

    We're getting our first bit of football news in a while...

    The reporters will continue to target the casual football audience, because they're the majority... Sanchez/Tebow is what those audience members will find noteworthy...

    I read that all 4 of Tebow's completions were short passes.

    I read that Tebow was holding onto the ball too long (read: sack or at least heavy pressure in a real game).

    I read that Sparano was yelling at Tebow to throw the ball but Tebow decided to run it instead.

    I read that Tebow fumbled a snap.

    So, other than that, yeah, I think he blew Sanchez away.

    Which defense? Certainly not the one we're going to put on the field every Sunday...

    Also, why was his coordinator so angry with him? I don't recall Sparano saying anything negative about Mark's performance today...

    It's going to be a long camp for the Tebowites... Hopefully when it is over, you'll finally come to grips with who's going to Quarterback this team this year...
