    Post June 19th Practice report....

    Practice report: Couple of hiccups for Geno

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets wrapped up minicamp -- and the offseason -- with a 90-minute practice Thursday in a light rain. A few takeaways:


    Smith
    1. Quarterback hiccups: One day after his coaches lavished praise upon him for a terrific offseason, Geno Smith ended on a down note, throwing two interceptions in team drills. One was an ill-advised throw, a pass into double coverage. He was looking for Eric Decker, who was covered by CB Dee Milliner, and it was picked off by rookie S Calvin Pryor. Later, Smith (2-for-6 in team drills) was intercepted by Milliner on a deep ball that went off the hands of Decker. It's important to keep this in perspective. Two turnovers on the final day of minicamp doesn't change anything. As Marty Mornhinweg indicated Wednesday, it's Smith's job to lose. Michael Vick was 2-for-7, with a couple of overthrows.

    2. Young ball hawks: Turnovers are always a good news-bad news story in practice. The good news is that the secondary, which produced very few big plays last season, came up big. In addition to Pryor and Milliner, rookie CB Dexter McDougle made a big play, intercepting Vick in a 7-on-7 drill. (Vick seemed upset; there might have been a miscommunication with WR Jeremy Kerley). Afterward, Rex Ryan praised McDougle as one of the standouts in minicamp. This will be the youngest secondary of the Ryan era. The upside is the improved team speed on the back end; the downside is the lack of experience, which will inevitably lead to mental errors.

    3. Another Hill to climb: WR Stephen Hill, who could be fighting for his roster spot, finished with a terrific practice. This was a positive offseason for Hill, who needed a jolt after a second straight disappointing season. He worked with the starting base offense, with David Nelson replacing him in some three-receiver packages. Nelson, too, looked sharp, hauling in two completions from Smith. Unlike past years, the Jets actually have some depth at receiver. It'll be interesting to see which players separate from the pack in training camp.

    4. Dawan is da man: Veteran S Dawan Landry became the forgotten man in recent weeks, especially with Pryor and Antonio Allen working exclusively with the first team. After practice, Ryan tossed a bouquet to Landry, mentioning him as one of the standouts in minicamp. Ryan also revealed that Landry won an "Iron Jet" award for his exploits in the conditioning program, noting that he reported to the offseason program in superior condition. Funny how that works; they draft a safety in the first round and the aging incumbent shows up looking better than ever.

    5. Attendance report: LB David Harris (hamstring tightness) and TE Jeff Cumberland (undisclosed) sat out. As expected, RB Chris Ivory (ankle) didn't participate. With Chris Johnson (knee) also out, Bilal Powell and Alex Green had busy days.

    6. Have a nice summer: The offseason program is over. The team won't be together again until training camp. Reporting day is July 23 in Cortland, New York.

    Thx for the summary.

    Sorry to hear Geno took a little step back ... But it does make you happy about the youngsters in the secondary.

    This report is from Cimini. And it is such bull**** he just reports numbers. Apparently the '2nd interception' was a drop by Decker (went off his hands as he mentions) that Pryor picked off. He didn't have a great day, but this was by no means a step back according to many other reports, as Cimini presented it.

    Interesting how he says that Hill had a terrific practice but no mention of HOW(or in what way) he had a terrific practice.


    Was it crisp route-running?

    Catching the ball better?

    Not jumping like he was going for a rebound everytime the ball was thrown to him?


    WHAT? WHAT WAS IT THAT WAS SO "Terrific" IN HIS PRACTICE? I'm curious.....(and please excuse the Caps, thanks)

    I like hearing about how well Dex McDougle is doing, sounds like we may have found something in round 3. Patterson will probably get injured, than open the doors for McDougle to start.

    Yeah I'm not going to get excited about him until we see it in games. Hes looked good before in practices. Especially in shorts and against no press. Hes a big fast guy, he should look good now.

    Actually he never came close to saying it was a step backward, he said Geno ended on a down note. He said one pick was off his hands. Cimini says enough stupid sh1t no need to make it up to pile on him. You'll get a chance soon enough.

    Then again, Cimini being Cimini he has to mention on a daily basis that Hill might be playing for a roster spot then praises him. It's been a daily occurrence

    One day after his coaches lavished praise upon him for a terrific offseason, Geno Smith ended on a down note, throwing two interceptions in team drills.
    It's important to keep this in perspective. Two turnovers on the final day of minicamp doesn't change anything.

    A lot of people, both here and especially in the media, killed this pick. I'm really rooting for the kid anyway, but there would be extra sauce on it if he turns out to be a starting-quality CB.

    I can't wait to see Pryor flatten some MFs, and then start picking off the passes because they hear footsteps.
    Gonna be great!

    That pick is starting to sound really similar to the Richardson pick from last year (obviously not quite as high), but same things thrown about when the pick came in. Why him? Why not offense there? Player X and possibly Player Y were better. It doesn't really make sense, or they reached for sure. Then OTA's come around and everyone seems to praise the guy when he's on the field, Rex loves the guy, which was the same thing that happened last year as well I believe with Sheldon. And then soon enough, everyone who hated the pick at the time becomes a fan.

    And for full disclosure, I thought the Sheldon pick was overkill, and liked Dessir better than Mcdougle, but I'd love to be wrong again.

    I know a TE or two I'd love to see him crush.

    We're strong up the middle: DLine, LB's: Harris and D. Davis, and 3 Safeties to boot...

    I agree. The others teams will test the edges of our D
