    KRL Camp Notes (7/28/12)

    Cortland Notes

    - The practice area is behind the SUNY Cortland football stadium

    - The practice area is two full length fields and one mini (30 yd) field all
    running parallel. Fencing runs along three sides so you can get a good
    vantage point

    - All fields are grass but are so well kept they look like turf

    - Jets Fest and the souvenir shop is there


    General Notes

    - Practice ran 2 hours and 20 minutes

    - Players were in shorts and shells

    - For the first time since Mangini music was played during the initial warm
    up phase of practice

    - Demario Davis still on the side working with trainers but no wrap on his
    hamstring (good sign?)

    - Otah on the side working with training staff

    - Landry was dressed and practiced

    - At 9 a.m. for over an hour it poured (where was Noah and the Ark)

    - Coach Lal (WR) is a stickler for precise routes always working with the
    group during the technique portions of practice. Also he uses the JUGS
    machine making the WR's "blind turn" and catch balls at random

    - Coach Dunbar (DLine) was a HUGE pickup. He was teaching the DL
    techniques that I never saw Carrier teach them. First of all he's very big on
    each DLineman attacking the "edges" of the OLineman they are facing. By
    attacking the OL on their left or right edge you can knock them off balance
    and by getting "skinny" get up field and get the QB

    - The tempo of the offense is relentless as soon as the play is over the next
    play is already called and we're ready to run it. The days of wasting time
    outs because the personnel is wrong or time is running out on the play clock
    are over


    Player Notes

    The rain affected practice but the players that stood out were:

    - Sanchez was sharp today, the increased speed of the offense plays into his
    strength. Which is the faster and the quicker he reacts the sharper he is

    - The RB's were impressive Greene, McKnight and Powell

    - The TE's were impressive Keller & Cumberland

    - The WR's were impressive Hill & Schilens. The thing that stands out about
    Hill is he plays very physical for a young WR. Even without pads you can
    see it also when he went against Revis he didn't back down

    - On defense out of the young safeties Tracy Wilson stood out. Bush and
    Allen need to learn when to turn and make a play on the ball not just look at
    the TE

    - Lankster looked good in coverage as the 4th CB

    - Bell & Landry looked much better in their coverage and footwork than what
    has been reported

    - Finally can the media stop with the "Tebowmania" nonsense!!! I'm glad
    he's part of the team and he'll bring a playmaking element to the offense,
    but there is no QB controversy!!! He has trouble releasing the ball when he
    sees an exotic coverage it got so bad fans were yelling at him to "throw the
    ball Tebow"

    Read in the other thread about Lancaster having a good day....is he strictly a CB or can he be a "coverage type" safety? Tough to find a draft scouting report on him, but he is 5'9 190, so not exactly safety height.

    Seems like Hill really plays fast and uses his size. I don't think the whole "route tree" thing will be a big deal for him....he shouldn't be running too many different things or making too many sight adjustments at the line. He should be using his size speed to create some space and putting sanchez in position to take a shot with him.

    Love to see the new tempo of the offense, schottys slow play calling was a HUGE detriment to our team in the past.

    Before I comment on what you said thank you for the update and your camp notes are a tradition I look forward to every year.

    I'm really getting excited about the uptempo practice that the offense seems to be forcing on the defense since that really is what Sanchez excelled at all his career.

    Was the heckling of Tebow really as bad as it sounded in the other camp updates?

    Did Maybin look bigger or stronger? Who played OLB with the first team?

    To answer a few questions:

    - To me Lankster is a total CB but you never know what Rex will try

    - I forgot to mention Maybin, he played well today and "sacked" Tebow
    at least once

    - The "razzing" of Tebow wasn't that nasty

    Thanks for posting. According to Twitter reports, Lankster and Maybin stood out on defense today.

    Thanks so much KRL. You give us an even better picture of what's going on than the pros. Can't wait for the notes from tomorrow.

    The most important thing that happened today was the "jeering" of Tebow.
    Not because of what it will do to him or the team but what it will do to the
    media. They came up to Cortland with one thing in mind "create a QB
    controversy" and report how much of a "circus" Jet camp was. Well now
    with fans voicing their displeasure with Tebow's play they'll have to leave
    or cover the team properly. Finally to be honest if Tebow wasn't going to
    be used as a total offensive weapon he would be in a fight for the #2
    spot. Because just as a pure QB McElroy is far more advanced than Tebow
    is

    This is critical because it also means everyone has drilled into thier heads what to do! We were the 27th worst team for penalized yards last year, 986 basically negated all Keller's gains.

    ESPN is at Jets camp all next week, so hopefully we'll see that pan out. Guaranteed they're going to drive this thing into the ground well after it's already dead though.

    Thanks for the reports, I look forward to the KRL reports every year as the 'official' end of the offseason

    I was like a kid on Christmas day when I saw this thread lol. Excellent work KRL, look forward to these posts every year and just your objective analysis in general.

    We should focus the negative energy on the media.. Chants of:
    "Metha you suck" would be awesome!

    Agree with all of that. IF this trend continues the whole QB controversy that the media is writing about will be squashed.
