QBs Give Positive Grades for Cortland Phase of Camp

Posted by Randy Lange on August 16, 2012 – 12:32 pm

The quarterbacks held court one last time at Cortland after this morning’s final practice of the Central New York phase of Jets training camp. And both Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow are feeling good about where they and the offense is and is heading.

“Some days obviously are better than others, but overall this was probably my most consistent camp,” said Sanchez. “The least amount of turnovers by far, I’m sure. I thought the running game looked good, I felt comfortable with my checks, I felt comfortable throwing the ball down the field, I thought my accuracy was there. I thought the receivers made great plays and I thought Dustin [Keller] really stands out to me as having a great camp.

“Now it’s a matter of getting guys healthy and moving on, but overall I think we did well.”

Sanchez got to weigh in publicly for the first time on LB Bart Scott’s assertion Wednesday that No. 6 is ready to “take the next step to being one of the top 10 quarterbacks in the league.”

“Thanks, Bart,” he said with a laugh, but he didn’t shy away from the pressure such an expectation brings.

“That’s nothing new around here. Each year as a quarterback and an organization, you’ve got to get better and learn from your mistakes,” he said. “It’s my job to deliver it, to be the triggerman this team needs, and I’m ready to do that. I’m excited about our team and our potential.”

Tebow expressed similar feelings about the offense in general and his progress in all his many roles in particular.

“I feel good as an offense and individually I feel good,” he said. “We have a long ways to go, I have a long ways to go. … I feel it’s going pretty well.”

No. 15 was asked about his adaptation to the many hats the Jets are providing for him to wear this season.

“Besides the personal protector stuff, the rest has always been pretty natural and easy, and it’s stuff I’ve done the last, gosh, probably 10 or 12 years. That really wasn’t an adjustment,” he said. “Some of the personal protector stuff was. I never ran down on special teams in my life, so that was a first. But it really didn’t take too much of an adjustment.”

Head coach Rex Ryan said he didn’t have the exact percentage but said that Tebow’s completion percentage has risen as his passing mechanics have improved under the tutelage of coordinator Tony Sparano and QBs coach Matt Cavanaugh.

“It was in the 60s for sure. I don’t know if it was 65 [percent] but it was close, in team drills and 7-on-7s,” Ryan said. “I think Tim’s doing well.”

Another Cover QB

Four years after one new Jets quarterback got the nickname of GQ for his predraft photo shoot in 2009, Tebow responded for the first time to questions about his just released GQ cover turn

“Probably most of y’all knew I was on there before I knew. It was kind of a shocker for me,” he said, adding about the photo spread, “That was something I did maybe six years ago in college. Honestly, the first time I heard it was when we were in the cafeteria and it was on ESPN. That’s when I found out.”

Gator on the NFL Radar

The Jets had no comment on their interest in Jeff Demps, the Olympic silver-medalist and former Florida star who rushed for 2,470 yards and 23 touchdowns in his college career, after reports said they were one of a number of teams showing interest in him after he announced that he wants to play in the NFL this season.

“You know what? I really don’t want to talk about him,” Ryan said at his late-morning newser. “Mike Tannenbaum’s on top of any available players.”

Tebow, who was Demps’ UF quarterback said he wasn’t starting a Demps-to-the-Jets lobby but still gave a glowing reference.

“Jeff is a great guy and a great player. He’s someone I was proud to play with in college,” Tebow said. “He did a great job for us, and I feel wherever he goes, he’ll work hard at it and do a good job for that team.”

Cort(land)’s in Recess

The QBs and the head coach were among the Jets who lauded their third training camp in four years in the Central New York countryside.

“Overall, I have a lot of positive feelings about camp,” Sanchez said. “We’re really excited to break camp and get home and get back to our facility, but we can’t thank SUNY Cortland enough. The people around town have been great and the fans coming out to practice, it’s exactly what we needed. Then on the field, the football side of it, I think it was the best camp I’ve been a part of.”

“It was a lot of fun being here,” Tebow said. “The fans were wonderful. I know they came from all over and from here. We really appreciate their support.”

“It’s terrific here. The university as always was amazing,” Ryan said. “Everything went off without a hitch. The weather, except for one day, was tremendous. The fields, the cafeteria, everything — Cortland blew me away. It’s a great place to have training camp. We’ll see if our string continues.”

That trend Ryan referred to, of course, is that in two years of Cortland camp, the Jets went deep into the playoffs. Last year, with camp in North Jersey, well, we know what happened. It’s not a large sample to draw any predictions off of, but it certainly hasn’t hurt the Jets taking their summer show on the road.

Practice Notes

A new WR addition to the walking wounded is rookie WR Jordan White. “He had some knee swelling,” Ryan said. “It remains to be seen if he plays” against the Giants on Saturday night. Among the other injured players, the coach said today that S Eric Smith (shoulder/knee), WR Santonio Holmes (rib), WR Jeremy Kerley (hamstring). Yesterday he said he didn’t believe WR Chaz Schilens (ankle) will play. NT Sione Po‘uha also is out and LB Ricky Sapp has also been sidelined. But Ryan feels RT Wayne Hunter (back) will play.

Expect most starters to play the first half vs. the Giants. Two exceptions, Ryan said, might be RG Brandon Moore and S LaRon Landry, who might come out early in the second quarter, not for any new injury situations. “Sometimes with some veteran players, you just want to back those guys down a little bit. Just being smart.”

Today’s practice was shorter, with the players in shoulder pads and shorts. Tonight is the team’s “rookie show.” Friday morning the Jets’ buses and cars roll down I-81 and back home.

    I don’t understand one thing. It’s like everyday I hear Sparano giving an ‘earful’ to the QBs for not getting rid of the ball faster. I’m all for discipline and having the guys play at a better and faster pace, and I know our QBs don’t get rid of the ball as fast as they should; but instead of constantly blaming the QBs, how about you get some better pass protection?? Our QBs do need to release the ball a little quicker, no doubt, but at the same time, they really do NEED better pass protection. Unfortunetly, this unit does not have it. I wish our coaches would realize this, we do have good players on the O-line, but it is simply not enough.

    I’ve always liked Jeff Demps in Florida, the guy is quick and small, but I don’t know if we really need him. We have enough running backs for now, don’t you guys think? Don’t forget, Tebow might be listed as a QB, but he will fall in that HB position on many occasions.

  3. By IRA on Aug 16, 2012 | Reply

    I look at camp and think some or the better positives were Baker, Ellis, Powell, Maybin, Lankster, Bush, Allen and Howard. And i will even give Ducasse a plus he is better than last year for sure. Negatives the D was way ahead of the offense hands down. Folk and Brown are so even but i would give Folk a slight lead right now. Too bad Kerley missed all of camp they really need him to step up this year.

    Randy, Tell Mark unlike alot of Jet fans I have his back. But a good percentage of Jet fans want his head on a platter. He will not have the 6 years that Eli had to get it together. Jet fans what a elite QB NOW! So he needs to produce this year or they do not want him back.

    How do you play Sanchez? Pressure him out of the pocket chances are he will overreact, panic and throw a pic, get sacked or fumble. Don”t give him the time in the pocket to set, plant and evaluate or he can and will make plays

    How do you play Tebow? Play the run it doesn.t matter if he has that little extra time in the pocket he can’t throw anyway and will probably miss even if the reciever gets wide open. His instinct is to run early be ready FOR THAT and pounce on him or he will burn you before you no it

    Brady reads the field so fast has such a quick release, such a deadly accurate passer that you have to have an excellant pass rush just to even bother him. Peyton perfect pocket passer knows just when to move and is so quick to plant himserlf again, knows exactley the platy he wants the perfect football mind. Brees does it all will kill you if you give him time in the pocket will kill you on the move the complete package. Rodgers probably the best as of now, has it all excellant on his feet or planted tremendous vision and instinct and deadly accurate.These guys and a few others are a pleaure to watch, head and shoulders above the rest of the pack

    I can’t remember a camp where the players accumulated the amount of injuries like they have this year. Particularly at any one position (WR) If you had to choose one position that was already full of question marks, and where getting the required amount of reps became really important, it would have to be the WR position Not good! Hopefully, it is more about media coverage then serious injury or anything else.

    Rex is cracking at the seams, like the junior college coach that he is. There are more and more of these “I’m on it”, “I don’t really want to talk about him” remarks and less and less of anything resembling the vision of a HC, much less of a great one. Wake me up when he’s gone.

    I’m glad everyone thinks the offense will be fine. I am concerned. Nothing in camp makes me believe that progress running and passing the ball has been accomplished and we need to be a lot better this year. Since ESPN spends so much time with the Jets perhaps Chris Carter & Jerry Rice could come out of retirement to help our WRs. The Giant can be seen drooling.

    Tom Spicer, I’ll echo your statement from earlier. There are still fans that believe in Sanchez and I am one of them. Your also right in the fact that alot of the fans want Mark gone. I don’t think thats fare, I think alot of what happened last year is not his fault or there were things that the front office have or haven’t done to keep him from progressing. This year is a make or break because the fans won’t take another disaster especially with all the Tebow fans that have unfortunatly migrated from denver following us not. 8-8 is one thing if the team plays together and fights hard week in and week out, but it’s the total locker room dibacle that we can’t have again.

    I know some won’t like my opinion and that’s fine, Spicer give Sanchez 6 years or 12 years, no give us a break, it’s not going to happen , HE HAS NO FOOTWORK or coordination from his ears to his legs some have it some don’t,He don’t< are you watching him work .. I remember saying some won't , me saying drafting this kid for what we paid was ridiculous, He was at the time an under graduate only starting 16 games in collegiate career, not to mention having and being surrounded by the top blue chipp players in the country, Why do you think so many USC QB.s fail in the NFL. Do the math .Let me also add Mr Spicer , Eli is 6-5. 6-6 cannon for an arm, the bloodline, very good college career,there is no comparison

    Interesting how the Giants manage to retool at the WR position so seamlessly and add EFFECTIVE TALENT at the position with such ease……………….Spicer, STOP IT!!! So now you only want 6 years for GQ? I honestly believe that if this thing blows up, he’s the one most likely to survive it….Rex and T have been awful for what was to be their franchise QB…….The evidence damning against Mike T as far as to his management of this roster…THEY CAN’T AFFORD FREE AGENTS NO ONE ELSE WANT………Guys are waiting until they have no other options before deciding to join the NYJs

    You know what there is so much negativity here its hard to read. Are there questions marks about this team? Of course but please lets all just take a deep breath and see how we stand after the first 8 games. I say they are either 4-4 or maybe they catch a break or two and get to 5-3. Then we will take it from there. Please lets give these guys a chance to get their act together and play some games before some of you hang them.

    It’s just like the jets to be looking for another speedy wideout with no nfl experience this late in camp. they have enough wide-outs in camp that should be given the opportunity to make an impact. Some of these injured players already have valuable time with mark ,thats good. now lets see what these other wideouts already on the roster can do.We may find another WR that can make the team and fill in during the season when we need him. It seems every year the jets have expectations for a few ,and the rest are just tackling dummies, with no real chance to make the team. sometimes you really have to take a player work and cultivate that player and mold him into someone who can gain valuable reps for your team in game time play

    i have great concerns about our offense this year. i think the defense will develop into something special by playoff time but i am not sure about our playmakers on offense. too many wr missing too much time will definitely hurt timing routes early in the season, can joe mcknight work in as a wideout? i dont like cro in this position, it is one thing catching the ball and another taking a hit from an opposing db or lb plus i’d hate to lose him from defense.espn know-it-alls have us going 8-8–is 12-4 out of the question??am i crazy to consider that??how about 11-5??

    “If (you) start pouting, put your head down in practice, it’s going to happen in MetLife Stadium or somewhere on the road,” said Sanchez. “Number one I think his whole demeanor is all about, well, we’ll get you,” said Ryan. “We might have had a bad play here but we’re going to come back and find a way to get you.” “Now when he makes a mistake, Sanchez said, he looks away, gathers himself, and then gets right back at it,” the Daily News article concludes. Can someone tell me why it took 4 YRS for the Jets to work with MS on this? I had this part mastered in 10th grade! (Maybe it’s a Queens swagger thing…)

    Sparano can’t get the Jets better OL guys, Karan, only Mr T can do that, and he hasn’t. And we don’t need Tebow either, as has already become clear by the occasional talk in the press of Mc overtaking him at #2. Eli won a SB in his 4th yr, Spicer, a few Jet fans might want “Mark” back if he even came close to doing that. Nice seminar on pocket passers, Bennett. I’ll admit you need better pass protection than we’ve given MS at times for him to fully blossom. Problem is, like scjoe has made so clear, MS is not that steady in the pocket, walks into sacks, doesn’t see the field well, and overthrows and underthrows even with the best protection at times. 2012 — or the first half of it — is surely it for him in Green and White, thankfully.

    the jets definitely have the receivers that can get down the field,stop being so conservative with the checkdowns and let Sanchez air it out and you might have some long gainers,it is like playing not to lose which is what Rex is all about,you see eli just fling the ball down the field and hope Nicks and Cruz makes a great catch.You need to do that just to open up the defense occasionally.

    Ira, what you call negativity many of us call realism. 4-4 through the first 8 is possible but so is 2-6, which might send Rex out the door and Tebow off the bench. MJV, great to have another voice on the site again that sees the Sanchez situation clearly and GaryC, it’s Sanchez who’s checkdown-crazy, Rex and Schotty got him into that after 5-pick games. Actually, Ira, I’ll revise that: I’m more positive than you because you just wanna keep making excuses for terrible acquisitions and players and saying “Go Jets!” and leaving it at that. I wanna see this FRANCHISE get serious about winning and sweep out everything that isn’t working, which is most everything. Owner Curtis Martin can’t arrive too soon for me.

    I am not saying Vlad is going to the Pro Bowl. But in my opinion he has improved maybe enough to make the team and help as a backup if needed. Lets just wait and see how he plays tomorrow night when he comes in for Moore. That should be a good test. If he passes well good if not then its time to cut bait.

    Tom 64, Yes the Giants won the Super Bowl in Eli’s 4th year. But Eli was worse than Mark until his 6th year in the league. Look at his stats he was worse than Mark in everything. Also just like Mark they said he wasnt vocal, didnt stand in the pocket strong & had that aw shucks face on when he threw a pick. This is a FACT!

    What I like about Mark this year is he is in the best shape of his life & you can physically see a difference in him when you llok at him. Also he just seems different this year from the way he is acting to the things he is saying. Like today he said he is the leader of this team & that it is his huddle. In years past you would never hear anything like this from him. Honestly it seems like he is not a kid anymore.

  40. By Tom Spicer on Aug 17, 2012 | Reply

    My prediction for Mark this year is as follows. 1 He will be ranked in the top 12 of QB’S in the NFL. 2 He will have a 10 point jump in his rating from 78 to 88. 3 His completion % will go from 56.7% to 60%. 4 He will throw for 3,700 yards. 5 He will have 30 or more total TDS 6 He will have 15 or less total turnovers. This depends on 2 things 1 can Hill be a legit #2 WR in his rookie year. Like I have said before I am high on Hill I just dont know coming from the O that he came from can he do it as a rookie. (More importantly) 2 Can Wayne Hunter not be the worst starting right tackle in the NFL like he was last year

    Regardless of whats been said about Jeremy Kerley and the kind of camp he’s had and ending up in ‘Rexs doghouse’, I really believe he will have a good season. He was definetly one of my favorite picks from last years draft. If the Jets use him properly, he will do really good things for us in the slot. I know its asking for a lot, but I hope Stephen Hill can became a major threat for us his first season. I hope he’s that vertical threat that Edwards was.

    I like our three tight ends. My only concern is their blocking might not match up as well as it would for a pure blocking tight end, but these guys can sure catch the ball. We all know how good Dustin is, but I’ve seen the Jets line up Cumberland as a wideout at times, this kid can do damage if healthy and used the right way. Josh Baker is versatile and on his way as well, he looks like a promising no. 3 tight end.

    By the way what about taking a look at Lee Evans he used to torch us on a regular basis. He was cut by the Jags a few days ago. It says Justin Blackmon who they took 7th in the draft, Laurent Robinson who was there big free agent signing from the Cowboys & Mike Thomas are there 1, 2 & 3. So they let him go I say bring him in for a look it cant hurt!

    Jet Fan Tom 64: Love your posts. Insightful honesty and reality always have a place on this site.
    Gotta disagree with you Spicer on Sanchez becomming a real QB, and your predictions for the season. 11-5 is a stretch for a team that did nothing to better themselves in the off-season while the teams they will play all have. During the Rex/Sanchez era, when have you seen this team come to play and dominate another team? They beat up on buffalo one time, but that was more of the Bills having a bad day. Sanchez aside, the Jets still have one major flaw – they can’t run the ball near the goal line. Good teams bring their big boys in and say “try to stop us”. I’m thinking 8-8, but I’ll be happy if your right about Sanchez, and 11 wins.

    Cont. we could have kept our picks, added a QB more qualified in later rounds. with the picks we gave away could have gotten a quality pass rusher, Safety, OL, or RB, Maybe we would still be having this QB discussion, only difference it wouldn’t be about a QB we gave so much for …. Point being in my opinion we would be a lot further along..

    Just saw that the Bengals released Jordan Shipley, I think he’s worth giving him a shot. For how good the Jets receivers are, Jordan may be that blessing in disguise. He looks like the type of receiver that will give it his all. Give him a shot Jets Coaching Staff.

    Tom Spicer, I really have to admire your optimism. But what do you see, as far as overall improvement, at this point in time to suggest the Jets win 11 games this season? Are you basing all of this on the “potential” of players like Coples, Hill, Davis, Landry (playing a full season) Bell, etc? Because if you look around the rest of the roster I just don’t see enough overall improvement from last season to even think about winning 11 games

    Karan, the reason the qb’s need to get rid of the ball faster isn’t our pass russ rush. It’s the lack of an ol.
    Bennet, MS stats are better on roll outs than in the pocket. There goes ur theory. and Brady throws the dinkadunk awesome, your right. They got rid of randy moss cause they prefer the dinkadunk. Wanna guess why he gets rid of it so fast,,,,,
    SCfromNY, I’m more concerned about the O than I’ve been since Rex Got here. Our OL was a stink bomb, and we left it 100% intact.
    Hey john40, it’s gonna be pretty funny when we start throwing screens again, and those blitzes look like our ol is awesome. But I’ll give you this, the giants DL will probably make everything look bad till TT exploits the giants LB’s.

    MikeJetVet, how about you put something on that assessment of MS? Say, If Mark does get a probowl nod, even as an auq, you wear a pink tutu to the final home game?
    Wayne, if the Jints are so great, why are so many on the injury list due to cheap bedding?
    Ira, I agree, if you hate everything we do, go cheer on philly or something.
    cgb, really? Every NFL team has contacted the guy, that leaves you alone not wanting him.
    64’Tom, we do need TT, who else can take the beating our QB is going to take? I love my team, but I don’t think MS, GM and Simms combined will survive the beating they’re about to take. This week may give you more insight against a team with superior pass rushers.

    If Sanchez does not succeed we have a really big problem. Our QB situation is not looking good and it’s still being purposely done in an effort to not give Sanchez any competition. It’s pretty obvious; and our next 5 years may be pretty dismal as a result. I cannot believe an experienced NFL gm (in M. Tannenbaum) has put together Tebow and McElroy as our team’s backup plan for Sanchez. I cannot believe that Tannenbaum has not seriously looked to fill Wayne Hunter’s spot. I was disgusted watching Tebow try to throw a football against the Bengals. I am disgusted when even thinking about McElroy trying to throw a football downfield. Tannenbaum and his merry-go-round thinking that ultimately solves nothing is painfull. Go MS, please.

    I have been trying to give the Jets the benefit of the doubt while not having too high expectations. All teams have issues with their teams at this point. I am sure NE fans are complaining about the running game, secondary, and an OL that makes ours look good. cqb I fully agree about the strenght coach. My son played HS ball with Alosi and he was a creep but knowledgable. Spicer I hope you are right but i also hope Olivia Wilde will come calling. I feel the first 3 games will tell the tale. If the running game is on track, we score early, reasonable # 3 and outs, Sanchez does not look timid, WRs step up ( I actually expect this), O keeps the D rested, and Rex stays away from Tebow I feel we will be going in the right direction.

    YO Jimmer Dink Dunk Brady only had 5235 yards a 65.6% competion ratio and an 8.6 average doing that babystuff. Know what Bress was? Guess in your world he’s a worse dinker and dunker he had 8.3 average Know what Sanchez was .. no.. ahh go look it up. If you would share with us where you got the stats regarding Sanchez success on the roll.You are confusing a designed play action play or “roll out” as opposed to the busted play with Sanchez on the run as the pocket erodes which I was refering to. Meaning that you missed the whole point No doubt Sanchez has some sucsess on a DESIGNED play action, roll out, that was not the point I guess in your zeal to correct just about the whole board you failed to read the whole post… get back

    O K going way out on a a limb here.. and going to try and guess why Brady gets rid of the ball so fast Is it because thats what good QB’s do as that makes them very effective and eliminates sacks and neutralizies the pass rush? no.. Is it because thats basic to a good QB that he NOT HOLD ON to the ball and the drill for this? no.. Is because he can read the defense so fast? no.. Is it because he is going for the high precentage that moves the chains and gets them to the Super bowls ? no I give up. Your right I guess. He just stinks those bombs Welker catches every so often just don’t count and Sanchez doesn’t turnover the ball when pressured to run in fact the want him to run for his life cause he is so effective when that happens.

    I for one am glad the O line is bad. This way they can’t stop the penetration so Sanchez will have to flee and according to the “stats” he is very effective running pell mell from bodily injury. All those sacks, pics, fumbles and “errant throws” were when he was fully protected in the pocket. SPORANO IS A GENIUS… hope this doesn’t get out or teams will stop the pass rush and we are in trouble

    Jimmer well said about Bennett on MS. He throws much better rolling out on the run. Shotty refused to use him that way but when he did MS was succesful. I bet with our poor O line and due to MS throwing better on the run Sparono will call much more rollouts for Mark this yr., TOM64 I think there is way more pressure playing QB in the NFL for a NY team then playing JV football in Queens. Mark wants to be succesful and has to deal with negative fans like you bashing him so when things go wrong it’s a night and day difference then your JV coach yelling at you. I do think he seems more mature and understanding of what it takes to be a NFL QB this yr, Hey Brees took yrs to develop as they drafted Rivers. Brees was inaccurate and bashed

    Lee Evans could be a good pick up. I think he has alot to prove after being stuck up in buffalo year after year. Being cut by the hapless Jags has to have left a bad taste in his mouth. He is probably hungry. He could be a great experienced vet to help sure up our shaky at best wide-out group. Shiply could be the next Eric Decker if used right and he seems like the kind of guy that could really help in the slot if kerly can’t get in shape for the season. I would be very happy with either pick-up if they happen.

    Johnski, i agree with you about Tannenbaum, he has done a poor job the last 2 years improving this roster. The RT position should have been handled, the depth on the line really. They should have resigned Rob Turner at least. I will disagree with you about the QB competition though. I’m a big fan of Tebow but not a fan of him being in NY. It will add pressure to MS i think, but I’m going to try to look at this from a positive perspective: he should make MS better competition wise. Cause Mark knows, a couple wrong moves and Tebow will take over regardless of what Rex says. This should motivate Sanchez. Also, Tebow is so darn versatile, if anything, he’s a really good back-up in that sense because of his ability to make plays. McElroy…..

He only took his nothing of a Denver team to the playoffs and beat the Steelers who are WAY PAST THEIR PRIME now boys and girls.. The MOST important fact you reality seeking boys and girls must realize is that the Jets have just gotten YOUNGER real fast.

    You guys know I am one of Mark Sanchez’s biggest supporters but even I will say he will NOT make the pro bowl this season or perhaps anytime soon. He would need a good O-line for that. But O-line or no O-line, he is not ready to make the pro bowl as a QB yet, I hope he does one day. But honestly, we shouldn’t care about that, I know I don’t. The ONLY thing that matters is that we make the playoffs. Because we have seen how Mark plays in the playoffs, pretty darn good, and honestly, thats the only thing that matters: the playoffs and wins in the playoffs, not a Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

    Spicer, aside from all the stats that Bennett pts out, Eli’s always had a cannon of an arm, while Sanchez never has and still doesn’t. And you made very similar predictions for Sanchez last yr and he didn’t even come close. youngjet, one of the things you often get with age is toughness, which is what a lot of us have to still be taking this sorry franchise seriously. If the good old days to you are Chad and Curtis Martin, it’s easier to be, if still foolish and counterproductive to be, blindly optimistic. Let’s see if you’re around 43 yrs from now if we don’t win another SB before then. Sure there’s more pressure in the NFL than JV, danny, but Sanchez seems to have just had a “birth of the cool” experience and it’s a little late for that.

    Thanks for the support, Jet Blue. Like with the current economy, dreams, happy talk, and dishonest distortions — all of which Rex excels at — aren’t going to get us out of this hole. Only clear-eyed, smart decisions — which Parcells excelled at — will. And that’s a good illustration of how the culture of the Jets hasn’t really changed enough yet for this team to be a consistent winner on a grand scale.

    Whatever happen to the players of yesteryear, Why is it that the Jets can’t go out there and find a player like a Deacon Jones, or a Bob Lilly, or a Marty Lyons, or even a Mean Joe Greene, or a running back like a John Riggins. Riggins up the middle, to the left to the right, now that was a running game, not a Shone Greene for a one yard gain. Come on Jets start finding guys who want to play in their heart, not just for the stats or the money. There’s pleny of other fish in the sea then to keep sticking it out every year with the same old guys, who get hurt every preseason but then turn around and want to play when the regular season rolls around.

That bomb thrower is at a huge 6,4 ( rolling out and all), however he does bury Tebow at 6.38. Now the highest rated QB of 2011 Rodgers he is at 9.2 So the best rated QB in the game who no one could call an awesome dink and dunker averages a whole .6 over that Brady guy AWESOME AIN’T IT … just buries him I guess you can either draw the conclusion THAT ALL THE QB’s are awesome dink and dunkers or you can draw the conclusion you don’t make any sense.

Wayne Hunter does not belong on a NFL team and I’m sorry I can';t see any lineman we have on the bench that can do any worse. it’s impossible to do worse then Wayne Hunter. Hey Tanny good investment with Wayne Hunter. Tanny should be fired tomorrow for Wayne Hunter alone and if Rex plays him ever again then he should be FIRED on the spot tooo.

    “SANCHEZ HAD A FAIRLY CLEAR POCKET [my caps added] on his biggest mistake of the night. Hosely, the Giants’ 3rd-round rookie CB, stepped in front of Sanchez’s UNDERTHROWN [my caps again] pass for Turner before returning it for a 77-yard int to give the Giants a 13-0 lead before the 2-minute warning. Tebow helped the Jets get on the scoreboard by engineering a 14-play, 68-yard drive that chewed up nearly 8½ minutes in the 3rd qtr. Tebow, who was greeted by cheers in his home debut, completed 4 of 5 passes for 52 yards on his first drive, but missed a wide-open Hill in the end zone thanks to an UNDERTHROWN [my caps yet again] pass on the move.” That’s the state of our QBs to date, folks, and don’t say I haven’t been tellin’ ya for months.

    Sanchez again had no points and 8 yards passing in the 1st qt… he is the slowest starting QB I have ever seen in MY LIFE. What strikes me is he looks so light on his feet when he drops or rolls looks really good in the pocket, but under any pressure he turns into a lead footed Zombie, without a clue what to do. He moved forword RIGHT INTO that first sack.

    Jets better pick up another punter. OK Jets go ahead and finally put your offense on the field, wait they were on the field already, sorry I didn’t notice. Jets best players in the Giant game, the linebackers, everyone else stunk. Now can someone explain to me why we picked up the Dolphins ex-head coach as our offensive coordinator. You never pick up another teams coach from a division rival, is he working to make us better or working to make us worse. Devito did good last night, but after all the good he did, then the Jets would pull him out the next play, what are the Jets thinking, he’s probably the Jets best Defensive linemen.

    Todays offense looks awfully familiar to last season’s. Soprano replaced Schotty, but the lousy playcalling continues. Dink and dunk with the same predictable result. Very few passes over five yards completed, or even attempted. Also,Ground and Pound are for teams who can run with power and protect. If you can’t do either that approach is meaningless.
    Hunter is obviously our most glaring weakness, but he’s far from alone. I blame Tannenbaum. He had the whole off- season to fix the problems. Also, NE is smart enough to collect tight ends. We don’t have one that can block! Baker has stonehands. The punter should be cut today. Defense alone can’t carry this team!

    If you play scared you will never get better . Sanchez will never learn to throw down the field if he is scared to throw interception. I know he has no time to look down the field, but sometimes he does and he throws 3 yard passes. Do they think this is something to start in regular season game or should they do this in preseason? Did he throw one pass to the the rookie WR, where is Dustin Keller. The defense spent 3/4 of the time on the field. We should just punt the ball on first down so I don’t have to watch this. This offense is painful to watch, good thingt we got Tebow instead of offensive lineman or another receiver. I had enough bring back Rich Kotite so I know not to waste my Sundays watching this and getting aggravated.

Rex does the same thing. Throws Slauson under the bus, but builds up Wayne Hunter, builds up Sanchez, but puts down McElroy. Coples needs to be in their with the first line, along with Devito, and did you ever notice that Revis is being picked on by QBs. It’s his size, and Posey Stinks.

    OK here we go Jets Offensive Coaching staff, let me show you how to fix the offense, It takes a WR three to four seconds to run his route, Sanchez has two seconds in the pocket before he’s lying on his back. Fix, screen passes, roll the QB out of the pocket. Jets need one yard for a first down, it’s 3rd and one at mid field, fix don’t run up the middle, run off tackle, or sneak the QB around the end or pull a fast one and go deep. Defense, fix try a four man defensive line, but make sure you put four guys who can get after the QB, and blitz more LBs. Special teams, stop running the ball out of the end zone when he catches it deep in the end zone and runs it our to the 10 yard line, and always with a penalty call.

    Jets RT Wayne Hunter was predictably manhandled in pass protection during Saturday night’s preseason game against the Giants.
    Hunter served up two full sacks, played a role in a third, and got off the hook for a fourth due to penalty. ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini suggests swing tackle Austin Howard will see an increase in practice reps this week. The Jets’ offensive line as a whole has looked brutal in pass pro so far this preseason.

In so doing he could maintain his stronghold on the top spot.

    Watching a Jets football game on tv, the other team has the ball, for around 7 minutes, no commercial breaks, get to see Jets defense for 7 minutes of playing time equates to 20 minutes without a commercial. Jets offense enters the field, commercial break, Jets run one play call a time out, commercial break, Jets get to a 3rd and 6 yards to go, only get 3 yards, punt, longer commercial break. Can’t tell you much about the Jets offense but I have all the commercials memorized.

    the jets keep on saying mark sanchez is the starting qb, and that tebow was brought in to run the WC and be a football player. then why does he get so many reps in practice running the jets conventional offense. hell they didn’t even start practicing the WC until a couple a weeks back. Mcelroy should be getting most of the number two reps. he is not getting the work he deserves or needs. this is a big mistake, and can hurt the team as the season moves forward. Tebow should be used in preseason the same way they plan to use him in the regular season. Or is this all a lie? But the best way to use Tebow would be to get him and mark on the field at the same time. lets see how that disrupts opposing defenses.

Mark seems to freeze for a second then looks closest to him for a receiver. On the pick 6, we were in a third and long. The play had no chance of getting a first down. It was his first read. Why call that play?? I saw Hill open downfield several times where we could have hit him quickly, before getting sacked. We never looked his way. He could be our Victor Cruz but we will never know.

So far we could have kept Schotty. Hill cleared out the Dbacks and got wide open. My grandmother could have completed that pass. I will add my voice to the few who have stated that after a couple of games the D will give up in frustration.Suppossedly RT is the big issue. If you can not scheme for that you are not an OC.

    All in all Sanchez looked fine last night given protection. And of that there is little. I can’t believe we are still talking about Wayne Hunter at this point. I love Rex Ryan, but the coaching staff’s insistence on playing him and keeping him on the roster is damaging his credibility both in and outside of the locker room. Sanchez is the consummate class act by holding his head up and proclaiming they have the right personnel on the O-line even when he knows they damn well do not.

    Tebow will be a fine backup. He can still keep defences honest as long as he gets some early completions. Which he did, and he will if he keeps working on his mechanics and getting the appropriate reps in practice.

    Shonn Greene is my issue.

    I have been reading this blog for months and I have never made a comment until now. I have a theory and I may be wrong but I don’t think so. Ask your self why we haven’t seen any of the “wilcat” or any trick plays. The brass want the real game plans to remain a secret so they are running a different offense then they have been practicing. I noticed that Tim’s throwing motion is drastically different then even last year and that means it will take time for the touch and accuracy to catch up. Rex knows that Tim can throw the long ball so why didn’t he use it last night? Because they want him to get reps with the shorter throws and get better. They did not pull Tim last night because he needs the reps in a game time situation to improve. Cont.

Still see Jets going 6-10 or 7-9 this season. if they have a season like this or they lose more games then this they better be thinking about drafting ot even trading up to get QB, Matt Barkley USC.

    Actually, FLPete, it’s more like one of the worst organizations in the NFL inexplicably has some of the best fans. It’s Rex who needs to be called out, danny, or rather called back — to some podunk college where his big mouth and small talent gets over on starry-eyed teenagers. ron a, I take no delight in watching the Jets descend to joke status. But I do sleep better looking forward to the day when we have a real owner, a real GM, and a real HC who knows all sides of the game and is interested in winning rather than stand-up comedy stunts. Thanks for reminding folks, scjoe, about those of us who dwell in reality but the reality now is way beyond Hunter or Sanchez or even Rex, it’s the whole badly-run organization.

    TOM64 that was my anger talking of course I will watch next week LOL. I havent missed many games since about 1984. I’m just sick rite now with the offense and mosty with how we did not make a change this yr at RT. I always back our team but you do know i been saying Wayne Hunter and Eric Smith are not NFL players. Well Eric is a NFL special teams player but that’s it. Hunter must be benched right now and I’m sure 99 percent of the team feels just like all of us when it comes to Hunter

    Just saw Andrew Luck. Impressive young man who is talented and lucky because his team is trying to surround him with the talent to succeed, including the drafting of his WR from Stanford. Their college pitch and catch continues at the pro level. Nice throws downfield. Some throws were bullets and some were soft easy tosses over defenders. Nice rebound from a pick six. This kid is good. Their draft was good. How soon before Colts are big time threats again? Will we still be rebuilding? Sad.

    Tom Spicer, I do not think there is a regular (Or anyone else) on this web site who EVER, even one time made a claim that it is ONLY Mark Sanchez who is at fault. I read the site almost every day and all i ever read about is the dysfunctional O line, the lack of depth, the 2nd rate core of RBs. The slow OLBs, the safety’s (more so last season) the WRs AND the QB! Not to mention the FO, the HC, the OC, etc. So, why would you make a statement like you did above?

    “Clearly, we’ve got to get more production in the regular season than we’ve gotten in these two preseason games. There is no doubt,” Rex Ryan said without any anger or frustration. “But I’m 100% sure when we kick it off for real that we will have more production.” COULD YOU HAVE MUCH LESS?! This is the 3rd yr in a row I’ve had to hear this stuff, and the third yr in a row in which I’ll have to listen to Ira saying that the exhibition O is purposely vanilla and that the real thing will come during the season, after which it won’t in fact come. And the only reason we didn’t hear this in Rex’s 1st preseason was because the talk then was Sanchez vs. Clemens. Why does anyone think Rex is in any way capable of coaching this entire team?

    Ron, There is nothing to say. Like i said back in June the D will be very good and hold teams to 17 pts. My concern was how will they score 20 pts and it doesn’t look good right now. I don’t care who the QB is or the RB’s with the way the OL is playing and no TE who can block they will not be able to have a productive offense. One option is if they can’t trade for a OT just maybe they can can slide Slauson over to RT he played RT in college for 3 yrs and put Ducasse in at LG. He has improved and maybe he can get the job done. They really don’t have too many options at this point unless they can pull off a block buster trade for a RT that a team wants to save on some cap and salary space.

    Keith made an excellent point about Sanchez is afraid to take chances on throwing the ball down the field,Rex lambasts him everytime he throws an interception,Jetfantoms favorite Favre has the record for intercepts and is going to the Hall of Fame,the jets will have to open up the offense if they want to see any success.the defenses now can put all eleven guys within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage with no fear the jets are throwing long.The Jets might have to go to a two back offense with Connor and Greene for better pass protection and to keep Sanchez walking.

    I watched the Colts play last night. The Colts have basically gutted their team to start new. Everywhere from OL to D there are many new faces especially at QB. So a QB who came to camp late, has unfamiliar WRs, a unfamiliar OL, no great running game, and under constant pressure from the Steelers D should have folded up early. No! He made plays when he had to, escaped pressure with his head UP, and threw downfield. I like to complain as many fans do BUT WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE JETS? 3 pro bowl OL and thetre is no protection or holes. Doesn’t matter how new the WRs are the QBs only throw 3 yards. Even Revis is being picked on. I like Rex but it must be the coaching.The defense CAN NOT play 45 minutes.

    Spicer: Stop comparing Sanchez to Eli. It’s getting old and there is no comparison. The lack of offensive production and the ability to sustain drives has been an issue since the first season with Rex. Great teams usually have great coahes and great QBs. But you gotta have at least one. The Jets have neither. Sanchez is not solely responsible for the inept O, but he does nothing to compensate for any of the other many deficiencies they have. Rex is absolutely clueless. I could see that from the first year, just watching what he does and listening to what he says. Mangini was a better coach than Rex. This team is going to get buried more than once this year. It’s going to be unpleasant, but if that what it takes for change…OK.

    If these posts are any indication of what’s to come, then we’re all in for a long season. How could a head coach that is one year removed from predicting a SB win not be capable of understanding that he not only doesn’t have the ingredients for a good team, he doesn’t have the recipe either. Parcells may not have always been able to shop for the meal, but come dinner time, there was food on the table. Rex is trying to convince us that the regular season will be different. But right now, he’s serving stale crackers with cold soup and telling us that the steak and lobster are on the way. We’ve been to Rex’s house for dinner before. There is no steak and lobster. Only hope is if Woody gets tired of eating soup and crackers. I know I am!

    Negative…Positive….Hater…Nay Sayer….Yay Sayer….Glass Half Full….Glass Half Empty? What ever your flavor, all you have to do is take a look at last seasons RT play, THEN, consider the fact that same RT is STILL being proclaimed the starter regardless of the fact he has allowed more then 4 sacks this pre season in less then one half of play. How utterly ludicrous is that? It is obvious that “talking this guy up” has had little or no effect on how he plays the game. What’s worse? THAT is not the only position in question, just the most glaring. If that little dose of reality is defined as being “negative” then I am the most negative person walking the face of the earth.

If neither Sanchez nor Tebow step up, don’t be surprised to see us unload them both, save a ton of money, and hire a new HC who’ll pick his own QB to go up against McElroy, who shoulda been handed the #2 spot this yr to begin with while MS was given the whole yr without the Tebow distraction to show us once and for all what he’s got.

    Last word for me on the O-Line: The Steelers have not protected BenRoth but he always finds a way to make a play. Remember the AFC Championship Game when the Steelers went for it on 4th down near the end of the game, instead of punting. Ben rolled out and made the play. Jets never saw the ball again…..or the Super Bowl as Rex guarenteed.
    Sanchez has shown that even when he gets time, he makes bad decisions and panics. He never seems to have the timing down with his WRs. YACs are rare for this offense because the ball is either thrown behind the WR or he has to jump to get it. Sanchez is not the only problem, but he is certainly not the solution.

    Jack, my bad! I figured 6 years in the league he would be about 28-29 as most of these guys red-shirt a year which makes them 22 -23 when drafted(like Shonn Greene)Even still, I have no confidence in Tannenbaum to do anything but screw up this opportunity. He loves the “Big names” but our biggest need right now is for our O-line.What makes you think Jacksonville will give him to us for anything less than Shonn Greene plus a #1 pick? I dont see this happaning though he would make us a lot better this year no doubt!

    We should NEVER give up a #1 or #2 for anyone this year. I have a feeling we will be drafting VERY high. Tanny will probably mess it up anyway.
