The Jets have finished ONE day of training camp…and it’s clear, they are the cream of the crop. The self proclaimed best team in New York, is now clearly the best team overall, and they will do it with less players than the rest of the NFL. You see they have players like Tim Tebow, who will play Qb, RB, Personal Protector, Gunner, and kick returner…so that saves a few roster spots. Antonio Cromartie will now also play WR as well as CB, so again fewer players needed. Add in the fact that Mark Sanchez has to go somewhere when Tebow is in the game (and doesn’t need time to eat a hot dog or anything) that’s a few less players there too. WOW, the Jets will not only dominate, but their payroll will be way down too!
Here’s what the Jets had to say today:
“Exactly what we wanted,” Sanchez said. “The pace, the tempo, the excitement. That was perfect. Exactly what Coach Sparano was preaching to us last night.”
“I felt like it went really well as an offense,” Tebow said. “I felt like we did some really good things. I felt pretty good about how I played out there.”
Some other notes from the Jets session:
1. Rex Ryan said he was the “best defensive coach” in the league. If that’s true, Sanchez and Tebow shouldn’t have many practice days like Friday. Ryan says he’ll be more involved on defense this year, possibly calling plays.
2.Santonio Holmes and Sanchez both lauded rookie Stephen Hill. “Steve is going to be exciting,” Holmes said.
3. Ryan won’t make excuses if the defense doesn’t perform this year. “I have everything in place right now,” Ryan said. “There is no question about it.”
I’m not sure why Rex doesn’t just relinquish the job of head coach and become the defensive coordinator of this team, he obviously has no interest in the other side of the ball.
Add to this that the Jets are back at Cortland this year…a place they practiced when they made it to two AFC Championship games, without winning any. How silly of us to think it’s about players and execution…it’s the practice facility stupid!
