    KRL Camp Notes (7/26/13)

    Before all of the reports start flying remember this is the media setup during
    practice, they are huddled together in one "herd" talking to one another. In
    the midst of them talking they'll look up and "catch" a play and tweet about
    it. That tweet has absolutely no context behind it so when you read QB
    completion stats keep that in mind


    Cortland Notes

    - For those who haven't been to camp the practice fields are behind the
    school's football stadium

    - There are three fields running parallel surrounded by fences and bleachers
    for fans. There are two regulation fields and one "mini" field (30 yds)

    - As you come in you can go to the souvenir shop or Jets Fest for the kids

    - Parking costs $5 and you have to print free tickets off the Jets website for
    the practices you'll attend

    - To determine which field will have the majority of the action check out
    where the camera stands are located


    General Notes

    - Players in shorts & shells. The practice jerseys now have names on the
    back so its easier to identify players

    - Practice ran 2 hours and 10 minutes

    - Coach Kotwica is as loud and profane as Westhoff not as funny. He
    implemented a new drill for the special teams. They line up along the 10,
    20, 30 & 40 yard lines and as 3 players come towards them they are
    instructed to avoid the first. Engage and shed the second and tackle the
    third

    - There's also a "back to basics" tackling period during warm ups. Every
    player rotates between three stations. The first one has Kotwica instructing
    on how to tackle in space. The second has Coach Van Gorder (LB's)
    teaching on form and how to punch the ball out. The third is Coach
    McDonald (DB's) teaching on how to mirror and tackle

    - Ivory, Holmes, Goodson didn't practice in addition three others were on
    the bikes

    - Its 2009 all over again on defense. Ryan in total control from installing to
    teaching defensive theory, in addition the exotic looks and blitzes are back

    - A totally shocking practice today. I expected to see the defense in total
    control and a ton of screw ups by the offense and I was totally wrong. The
    offense was impressive it was innovative the QB's were decisive and the
    defense was kept off balance. During the 11 on 11 team periods very few
    balls hit the ground. The screen game was particularly impressive with the
    way Mornhinweg got the ball to RB's, WR's & TE's in space. And this all took
    place with no Ivory, Goodson, Holmes and very little of Edwards. What it
    means for the season I don't know but they deserved credit today


    Player Notes

    - The #1 guards right now are Colon & Peterman

    - Edwards didn't get a lot of reps

    - Both QB's played well. Sanchez ran with the #1 offense today and was
    sharp. During the team periods he had impressive throws to Clyde Gates
    (30 yds) and Winslow (25 yds) and didn't make any "visible" mistakes.
    Smith was also sharp but he needs to work on his voice calling out signals
    (too thin). He had impressive throws to Titus Ryan (20 yd out through a
    needle) and to Stephen Hill (40 yds, yes he caught it)

    - The #1 defense right now is Wilkerson, Ellis, Richardson, Pace (why?),
    Harris, Davis, Coples, Wilson, Allen, Landry & Cro

    - Defensive players that flashed today were Richardson (sack) and Coples
    (2 flush out sacks)

    - Winslow had a good day stretching the middle of the field. His only mistake
    was getting one ball punched out from behind and having it returned by
    Antonio Garay for a TD

    - Danny Lansanah (rookie LB) had a pick 6 against Matt Simms

    - Garay also got into a "fight" with JB Shugarts (OL)

    - Mcelroy is a nice guy but there's no way he should stick on the roster.
    Matt Simms has far more arm talent. There are just too many throws
    Mcelroy just can't make


    Standouts For The Day

    - Mornhinweg and the offensive staff

    - Clyde Gates

    - The OLine

    - Sanchez & Smith

    - Winslow

    - Powell

    Pace is in the starting lineup to hold the forte against the run on early downs. he is a 1 or 2 down LB at this point.

    Good to hear that Powell is a standout. Im predicting him for over 1,000 rushing yards this year and 40 - 50 catches. He will be the breakout player on offense.

    Kamp Reporting Legend in midseason form already.

    Outstanding as usual krl, thanks! Glad to see the screen game looking nice, considering we haven't had it in our offense the past two years. I had no idea pace was still on the team.

    Thanks for the Report KRL. The view from my office window doesn't include Courtland. Your reports keep me in the loop. I appreciate it as do many on here.

    This can't be overstated.

    IMO the Jets former incompetence may have lost any chance Sanchez had of being a serviceable NFL QB (maybe) but I think at a minimum a competent offensive staff bodes well for Mr. Smith!

    Awesome stuff KRL! Couldn't believe I was actually reading that the OFFENSE looked good. Cannot wait to see some west coast offense again.

    It's really not normal how happy I was to see this thread.

    Thanks again, great work.

    Who would be in for pace at this point? Sapp?

    He deserves to be the starter day 1 as someone has to take it from him. He's no all-pro but he has been a good pro player for a long time and knows this defense in and out. Hopefully sapp's athleticism can come together with knowledge to unseat pace but for now pace should be in there.

    I didn't want to be the one to say it, but I guess I have to......This is an average performance, KRL. Its obvious you are just mailing it in, living on your reputation so to speak.

    Frankly, I expected better.




























    (J/k) As always, thanks for the updates!
