    Jets | Team will not practice with Giants this summer in Albany
    Tue, 6 Jun 2006 07:03:04 -0700

    Vinny DiTrani, of the Bergen Record, reports the New York Jets will not get together with the New York Giants for a combined practice this summer in Albany. The two teams have practiced against each other the previous two training camps, but last year's sessions featured several flareups between the Jets' defense and the Giants' offense. The Jets' new coaching staff is the reason the two teams will not practice together this year.

    Donnie Henderson's not with the Jets anymore. Come on Tom, we promise not to mug Jeremy Shockey again.

    That says it all right there. Doesn't particularly surprise me either. I don't think the Jets new staff has any reason to want to go ahead and do this, particularly with all of the time and effort they'll need to implement their new schemes while also wanting to keep everything close to the vest.

    Forget that, we make no such promise.

    I pretty much knew the Giants-Jets thing here in Albany was a Herm Edwards initiative.

    P.S. The stock market seems to be tanking!

    I never understood why the team wanted to inconvenience themselves with that trip anyway.

    FOr fans of the teams it was fun but really?

    I didn't see the Jets as a team benefitting from it...

    In fact...I would think it was a gross inconvenience all around...

    Kinda like the louder you yell the more right you are!

    Or you have to yell if they speak another language and don't understand you.

    Why should the team travel up there all the time. Good move by the coach.

    Unless you're a fan that lives in Albany.

    The Washington Deadskins just did a "Redskins blitz" here at the beach. I of course I didn't give a Rats @ss but a buncha deadskin fans did show up.

    It's a marketing tool.

    I just said yesterday I doubted this practice would happen.

    Not surprised at all.

    This was really nothing more then a Herman Edwards smooze the media lovefest anyway.

    Good riddence.

    Winning is the only marketing tool that works. Anything else is for well... tools.
