    Not to mention our 11-5 team in 2010 was 100 percent legit.

    Note: I may be going up to camp for Thurs and Fri... working on it.
    If you do, I BEG you to be objective in your reports. It's a tall order, I know, but you can do it if you try hard. Maybe.

    what planet are you on? For the last 4 years, the Jets' offense has looked and played atrociously in camp and pre season. It has looked just awful in camp each of the last 4 years. That's why we were all so damned shocked when the Jets offense mutilated the Bills defense in last year's home opener. It was so out of character for them after a dismal pre season. Too bad that game was only a blip; an aberration from reality.

    just curious, why is there no practice today? are they doing something else, like weights or playbook or is it a true day off?

    the CBA limited the number of practices and mandated days off

    +1 there were no gimme games that season, the Colts game was the year prior. Jets won 11 plus 2 playoff games.... pretty good you ask me.

    Just wanted to say thanks KRL!

    ...and K-Ro for that matter. I appreciate any and all eyes we have up at training camp, since it's not an option for me, so thanks again and in advance!!

    I think the perception around the boards lately about what we're going to do next year is slowly changing, but if you don't think we're winning more than 6 games next year, you haven't been paying attention.

    Just wish to add my thanks once again to KRL and Ko and all the fans who choose to post there camp observations.

    Unbelievable, I REALLY miss Jenny Vrentas she was the ONLY one who
    would breakdown what's taking place on the field. Congrats to her
    for the new job at SI


    General Notes

    - Players in full pads

    - Practice ran 2 hours and 10 minutes

    - Even though Milliner signed he still hadn't checked in

    - Ivory and Edwards were padded up but they both watched

    - Another solid job by the offense today

    - The best offensive decision Ryan has made in his five years has
    been hiring Mornhinweg and letting him be the "head coach" of the
    offense. People may want Rex to be more involved with the offense
    but he needs to stay out of the way. Watching a "real" OC handle
    his business has been a joy. The early performance of the offense
    has been so good you haven't missed Holmes, Goodson, Ivory, Edwards
    and Winslow


    Player Notes

    - Smith was with the #1's again and today he was better than Sanchez.
    What I liked was how he recovered after a couple of bad reps. They
    were in red zone 11 on 11 and his first couple of passes were knocked
    down by Pace. But then he found Kerley for a TD on a rollout bullet
    into the corner. In his second set of 11 on 11 reps he made nice
    passes to Jeff Cumberland (20+ yds) and Titus Ryan (15 yds in traffic).
    In his 7 on 7 reps he had a TD to Hill (15 yds) and he would have had
    another but Clyde Gates dropped it (he did pushups as punishment). In
    addition after four days of practice he hasn't come close to throwing
    an INT. This is not a Smith "lovefest", just reporting what I've seen.
    From all the negative reports I read before the draft and during OTA's
    I didn't expect this

    - After three days of good practices Sanchez was just ok today. He
    threw two INT's, one to Darrin Walls (CB) in 7 on 7. And another to
    Josh Mauga (LB) during his 11 on 11 reps. He did have some nice
    passes to Gates, Vidal Hazelton and Kerley (TD) during 7 on 7.
    But he also showed some inaccuracy during 11 on 11 throwing behind
    some WR's

    - Hill wasn't as good today as yesterday but he was solid. I will say
    this he's smoother in his movements so far. He's not flopping around
    like last year where he looked like a newborn baby deer

    - Backup the UHaul truck and put Ducasse in it. He was totally
    embarrassed during 1 on 1 Oline vs. Dline drills. Damon Harrison (NT)
    destroyed him three consecutive times, with the depth we have on the
    Oline he's not going to make it. Because Winters, Aboushi and Campbell
    continue to impress. Particularly Winters he has "hands of stone" when
    he punches and locks onto a DL they stop dead in their tracks. Colon
    and Peterman better play at a high level because Winters is close

    - Richardson has been very impressive he has a full array of pass rush
    moves and has been stout against the run

    - Jeff Cumberland flashed today stretching the middle with excellent
    catches from Smith & Simms

    - Kenrick Ellis showed good penetration today blowing up running plays
    during 9 on 7 running drills. And getting a "sack" during 11 on 11

    - Both the backup safeties flashed today, Josh Bush with good coverage
    on Hill. And Jaiquawn Jarrett blew up McKnight on a running play


    Standouts For The Day

    - Smith
    - Cumberland
    - Winters
    - Richardson
    - Ellis
    I was there as well so just my few additional thoughts.

    It is very impressive how much you take in during the 2+ hours. It's such a **** show to follow the drills around. You always feel like you're missing something.

    I arrived for Smith throwing 2 really bad balls in end zone drills, but after that he was pretty much on target all day. I really liked how when he throws an incompletion it tends to be thrown in a place where the defense has no chance to intercept it. Long balls long and out routes out etc. He was never really in danger of throwing a pick. Sanchez looked ok, but his two picks were really bad. Simms looks clearly better than McElroy to my eyes. In this throwing drill to end practice they all run sprints (this is the source of the Smith being out of shape bull****) and then have to drop back and hit targets over a net. Smith stroked one into the barrel hole which is ridiculous from the 20 yards or so they were throwing from. Simms, also, was all over it.

    Winters looks like an absolute beast. He was stone walling people and talking **** like a young Faneca.

    Wilkerson, also, looks like a beast. (No surprise here.) He was throwing Colon around like a rag doll.

    Demario Davis looks fast, but there weren't too many LB drills that I caught.

    Cromartie is the most impressive raw specimen of athleticism I've seen in person since Randy Moss. He just moves like a gazelle and he's huge.

    Speaking of which Stephen Hill looks bigger than last year and is definitely moving a bit better.

    Braylon was getting cheers all over the place and he always made a point to thank the crowd.

    Sanchez got some boos (for bad plays not in general) and his Dad is all over that place. Couldn't help but feel bad for him.

    That's all I got. Thanks again KRL.

    on behalf of all the desk jockeys who follow these reports...thanks so much.

    it's so encouraging that 3 of the top 4 picks are impressing early, and we haven't even seen ivory or milliner yet. it's actually possible that the top 5 picks will all be starting.

    I'm getting pretty psyched for Winters man. I love everything I'm hearing about this kid, and god help us if he doesn't win the competition over Stephen "Turnstile 2.0" Peterman.

    yes. guard was another position the media was all over the jets about b/c their starters were leaving. well winters will probably be an upgrade over slauson and moore was so good he's retiring.
