Florham Park, N.J.: As I settled in my area on the sideline to watch practice and everything looked bigger.* The spacious grounds of the practice facility, large open areas everywhere I turned.* Something felt different—less intensity, less volume, less everything.
The big name players on the Jets were missing.* Nowhere to be seen.* No Mark Sanchez, no Tim Tebow, no Nick Mangold, no Darrelle Revis, no basically anyone who assumes a large role on this team.
The confusion ended when Rex Ryan approached the media on the sideline and let us in on what was going on.
