“Really, he is just a real natural football player,” Mornhinweg said of Powell. “Things come easily to him. You teach him something and then he gets it very quickly.”
When Ryan’s defense stops opponents on a weekly basis, we take it for granted and point to the aspects of coaching that he doesn’t excel at.
Now I know how Eagles fans felt all those years. Now that he’s moved on to call the shots for the Jets offense, Marty Mornhinweg has not adjusted his bias even while saddled with a rookie quarterback.
“I moved on from those experiences I had,” Revis said. “I had a great six years there. Now I’ve just got to move on. I’ve got a new start ahead of me, with a new team and I’m excited to be a Buccaneer.”
Tampa Bay knows it is facing an inexperienced rookie Sunday, a guy who took all of 69 snaps in preseason games. It won’t be a big surprise to anyone in the stadium if the Buccaneers do all they can to try to rattle Geno Smith.
My expectations for 2013 couldn’t be any lower. But there’s another way for fans to view this season as it unfolds besides absorbing the pain from each defeat.
“What they’ve decided to do is just button up and say nothing, and allow this season to just come and go,” Francesa said. “And if you’re dumb enough to buy tickets to watch this, well, that’s your problem.”
Now what for the New York Jets? Well, they have less than two weeks to solve their big quarterback question before they face Tampa Bay on Sept. 8 in the regular-season opener.
If the right signal caller is chosen, the Jets will be better off in the short and long-term. Saturday night should big a major measuring stick in deciding a winner between Smith and Sanchez.
Rex Ryan announced that Geno Smith will start for the Jets on Saturday.
The duo chatted with head coach Rex Ryan, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, quarterback Mark Sanchez and general manager John Idzik as Gang Green gets ready for the upcoming season.
The running back fully participated for the second straight day after being limited by a hamstring injury all of training camp, and hopes to play Saturday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Rex Ryan says the New York Jets have not yet determined whether Mark Sanchez or Geno Smith will start the team’s next preseason game against Jacksonville on Saturday night.
The last thing Jets fans need to see during the second preseason game is Geno Smith not have plays called that give him the opportunity to win this quarterback competition.
These catastrophes in first preseason games can’t be taken too seriously. What can, though, is the overall body of a summer’s work.
