    In the race to become the Jets’ starting quarterback, Geno Smith is lagging behind Mark Sanchez in at least one respect: Physical conditioning.

    That’s the word from Brian Baldinger of NFL Network, who was at Jets camp on Sunday and said Smith looked out of shape during wind sprints following practice. According to Baldinger, Smith couldn’t keep up with Sanchez or anyone else in the group of players doing conditioning drills together.

    “He looked good yesterday until they ran gassers at the end of practice, and Geno Smith looked like he had done no conditioning,” Baldinger said of Smith. “It was actually embarrassing to see how far behind he was behind Sanchez, [Matt] Simms and everybody else that’s there.”

    Smith is a faster runner than Sanchez (Smith ran the 40-yard dash in the 4.6-second range at the Scouting Combine, while Sanchez was in the 4.9-second range), so if Sanchez is beating Smith in wind sprints, that suggests that Sanchez has taken his conditioning much more seriously this offseason. That would seem to be a point in Sanchez’s favor as Rex Ryan, John Idzik and others make the “group effort” to pick the starter.

    But much more important than wind sprints is the ability to run the offense, and Baldinger said in that respect, Smith looked good on the practice field.

    “He did look good getting in and out of the huddle, getting to the line of scrimmage, getting the ball out of his hands quickly,” Baldinger said.

    That’s what really matters to playing quarterback. But it would be nice to see Smith get himself into shape.
    This thread is useless without pic. dump.

    The biggest story-spinner in the world is calling this report bs. End of story.
    LOL, seriously. When Manish is calling you out...your story really has some credibility problems.

    Absolute garbage!!! As I reported Coach Lee has the QB's run gassers
    after practice and then in fatigue has them simulate a play and put the
    pass into a garbage can. Baldinger wants to get some buzz for his
    reporting but he embarrassed himself

    Today I heard Coach Lee yell at Geno when he was doing sprints "C'mon Geno I know you're in better shape than that" as he was struggling a bit with his sprints.. He was more tired because it was the end of the practice, and in the drill he had to throw into garbage cans 20 yards deep.. So he was trying to composure himself more than anything.


    And I saw the sprints that Baldy is talking about yesterday... I was right in front. Geno and Mark were at the same pace and McElroy was a lap behind the two of them. So... I'm not sure what Baldy was watching?

    I think Baldy heard what Lee yelled and IMMEDIATELY used *that* to fuel his crap about Geno being out-of-shape. Nevermind that most coaches belittle their players just to get them more motivated during training but I guess Baldy didn't get the memo.

    Parcells would make the team do laps and the last guy to finish, dragging behind while basically walking through the routine was Vinny. Didn't strike me as being out of shape, just that he's a friggen QB and doesn't need to run like others.

    Yup. They're just a sports version of TMZ.

    Still, what do we expect? They cater to the average fan that prefers to be told what to believe instead of forming an opinion on their own.
