Jets training camp
Stephen Hill has been booed, cursed at by fans and labeled a “bust” by critics. The New York Jets wide receiver has heard it all, and he’s trying to ignore it. And it appears to be working.
Marty Mornhinweg might be the not-so-secret key to the New York Jets’ success this season. Yep, even more than Geno Smith. Or, Michael Vick. Even Eric Decker, Chris Johnson and the offensive line.
The Jets are stacked at running back. It’s the order of things that will need some time to figure out.
You’ve heard it all before: Rex Ryan is fired up about his Jets. But on Thursday the head coach was really fired up.
Rex Ryan says it’s time for the New York Jets to improve as a team as they prepare for the start of training camp practices.
Tim Tebow struggled on the final day of Jets’ camp at Cortland.
“I just see the way he’s interacting with all the groups — the offensive line, the receivers, the backs … even the defense,” head coach Rex Ryan said. “I just see that side of Mark that maybe I never saw before.”
“We’re in a media business,” said Johnson. “We want to give our fans an insight.” Are you kidding me? The Jets are in a media business? This is one of the dumbest things that an owner can say.
Call it what it is, but this fight isn’t a circus. Instead, it was the fight of a team hungry to prove a point. It is a point that they might just make with the rest of the league in Week 1.
Those who like Tebow point to his group of characteristics that are often referred to as intangibles. However, he can’t throw the ball accurately. That’s a requirement of the job.
A crowd of 9,401 packed into SUNY Cortland Stadium. To nobody’s surprise, there were plenty of No. 15 Tebow jerseys in the crowd, but Sanchez was not devoid of his followers.
This is shaping up to be quite a weekend for Gang Green. The highlight of Friday’s practice was when Mark Sanchez threw a “game-winning” touchdown to Patrick Turner, after the defense dominated almost all of the workout.
Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie spoke about his wide receiver comment for the first time on Friday, and clarified what many believed to be an insulting and controversial slight.
The Jets are trying to fit Tebow, a square peg, into a round hole. We all know what he is — and it’s not a pocket passer.
They’ve trained together, kicked a ton of footballs together and shared tips. Now, they’re in training camp with the New York Jets — and after the same gig.
