    KRL Camp Notes (7/30/12)

    General Notes

    - Players in full pads

    - Practice ran 2 hours and 20 minutes

    - Rex doing an early morning ESPN interview. All the "media morons" are
    here today (Palantonio, Cimini, Myers etc...)

    - Revis practiced so let's kill the "contract conspiracy" theories

    - Defense breaks out the "black jerseys" today and are quite vocal about it
    all day

    - The usual players were on the sidelines not practicing (Davis, Otah, White).
    But there were a few new ones (Dowtin, Steed) they need to get back quick.
    When you're a UDFA coaches don't like to see you sitting out

    - Bell and Landry are "body beautifuls". They ALWAYS have their jerseys
    rolled up so you can see their abs


    Player Notes

    - Speaking of Bell and Landry so much has been made of Bell's age and
    Landry's health that people are missing how good they've looked. Both have
    much more range and closing speed than was advertised in the media

    - Today's practice was "Ricky Sapp's world and we are just living in it". In
    various 11 on 11 segments of practice he had at least 4 sacks, 3 pressures
    and caused at least 1 false start. He was always in the backfield

    - For the most part the #2 and #3 defense really handed it to the offense
    today. The #1 held their own

    - Sanchez was sharp and here's an example why you shouldn't pay attention
    to practice completion stats. On one rep Sanchez read that the defense was
    coming with an all out blitz. He checked to his hot read (Keller) and hit him
    with the ball right in his hands, Keller dropped it. Now all the media will say
    is it was incomplete but will never give you the full context of the play

    - You also saw the installation of plays that take advantage of Sanchez's
    mobility today (roll outs, misdirections, waggles etc...)

    - The RB / LB blocking drills brought about some surprises. Greene's
    blocking is much improved he stoned Harris multiple times. McKnight was
    inconsistent and sloppy sometimes reaching or ducking his head. The star
    was Powell consistently stopping bigger LB's and not allowing them to get
    near the QB. In fact with the way he's looked running the ball and now with
    his blocking I wouldn't be shocked if he challenges for the #2 RB. He
    reminds me of a bigger Leon Washington

    - Maybin was his normal disruptive self with pressures & sacks. Westhoff is
    even using him on special teams now

    - Other defenders that stood out were Wilkerson, Ellis, Coples and Lankster

    - Props to Hunter today very steady in OL / DL drills and 11 on 11's

    - Here's my analysis of Tebow, when a play is called he predetermines
    where he wants to go with the ball. If that's covered he'll wait and swat
    guys away because he's 250 pounds and if all else fails he takes off. No
    criticism its what I see when he plays QB

    - Funny play of practice was during an 11 on 11 segment. Trufant
    intercepted a pass from McElroy because Antonio Allen applied pressure. He
    was trying to bring it back for a pick 6 and the entire offense came off the
    sideline to make sure he didn't get in. Obviously Sparano has drilled them
    very well


    I'm heading back to NYC now so post your questions and I'll answer when I
    get home

    Great job KRL.

    I am trying to dampen my excitement towards Sapp and Powell (especially Sapp) because each report is speaking glowingly of them. The one thing that has stopped the Jets from being just a monster D the last few years is suspect safeties and non play making olb's If Sapp and Maybin continue with their play this D could be scarey good.

    thanks for the notes KRL, you are the man

    Thank you for posting.

    Quick question - Did you see Maybin play much in running situations? or simply against the run? How did he do?

    Would love to see Maybin be able to be an every down player.

    So surprised with Powell these first few days of camp... Very excited moving forward...

    Same for Sapp and Lankster... All pleasant, unexpected surprises... Let's hope they keep it up...

    With Pace and BT still in the fold, and with their experience, I dont see maybin playing a ton on first down. I think having him be a situational player and pass rusher helps our team and keeps all the LBs fresh.

    I also feel the same way about sapp....these guys have the speed and athleticism, they just lack experience. Let them use that speed in situational roles in 2012, gain experience, and hopefully step into starting roles at OLB in 2013.

    Thinking about a defense with pouha devito, coples, ellis and wilkerson up front and harris, demario, sapp, maybin at LB is really putting a lot of speed and raw talent on the field.

    Question for KRL:

    I have noticed in many of the camp reports that the practice snaps seem to be distributed liberally between all four of the QB's. My question is whether you think this makes sense considering the new labor rules in the NFL which reduce the total number of camp snaps significantly. With the lack of "two a days" and a reduced number of snaps in helmets and shells do you think the coaches should abandon the idea of getting everyone getting snaps. I tend to think that with the reduced number of practice snaps they should emphasize the first team more then in the past.

    Concur, was not excited about Powell at all based off of last year, but he seems to have really started off well.

    KRL - well done ! Thanks for the eye-witness reports.

    I would be so glad to be wrong about Powell. He did have a great senior year and was supposed to look impressive at the Senior Bowl. Maybe that player has finally shown up to the Jets camp.

    Also pleasant news on Sapp. If either / both of these guys end up contributing, it will be a big boost since nothing was expected from them.

    Nicely done KRL. Many thanks.

    thanks KRL, great stuff as always.


    its awesome to hear the same names over an over again for young players "flashing" -- Powell, Lankster, Sapp, Maybin, Ellis.

    if these guys become regular contributors, watch out!

    Powell contributing really should not be much of a surprise....hes a second year player, thats when you SHOULD be starting to do something.

    The fact that people on the board were down on him was based on very little statistical evidence. The kid had less then 10 touches on the season, was he really supposed to break one of those for a 60 yard TD run or "show us something".

    He didnt play because he had 3 more experienced players in front of him and also because most rookies dont contribute there first year, especially RBs as there is a huge learning curve to picking up NFL blitzes. Not because he wasnt a good player.

    Now I pnot holding out hope that we have the next arian foster here (another RB that played sparingly his first year), but hopefully powell worked hard, learned how to be a pro and can now step in and be successful if needed.

    Like to see more plays getting Sanchez on the move... go back to his college highlights and all the plays were made from a fluid pocket. Last year he did a lot of straight drops and got creamed, and he also has trouble seeing over the line on the straight drop... all good in my book! Can't wait to get this thing going for real...

    Awesome job, can you give more insight on how coples has looked? The beat reporters have not mentioned him at all so far. Thx!

    ... thanks KRL ...

    ... curious if you have any idea about who's fault the O-line false starts have been these 1st couple days? ...


    ... specifically if my kick a dog when he's down feelings of "of course it's hunter!" are merited or if they seem to be evenly distributed ...


    ... love hearing about the safety's and sapp ... and love that Sparano has installed plays working towards sanchez's strengths ...
