Cancel your breakfast plans; Thursday morning on WFAN will be must-listen radio. And the star attraction will be backup quarterback Tim Tebow, set to sit down with two of his harshest critics.
The Jets scored a 17-3 win over Big Blue last year as Gang Green took home the brand new piece of hardware. However, it wasn’t the trophy that the Jets had atop their to-do list last season.
An old, friendly face was at Jets Training Camp in Cortland on Tuesday. Ex-Jets quarterback Chad Pennington graced his presence in upstate New York to visit the team.
After two weeks of practices, meetings, fisticuffs and a reported team trip to the movies, the Jets finally get to lock horns with another team.
“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.
Peter Schwartz covers the Jets for WFAN and after chatting it up with Jets owner Woody Johnson up in Cortland this morning, he picked up the phone so that he could let Boomer and Craig know what ole Woody had to say.
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.
Saturday marked the first practice of training camp that was open to the public. There’s been rain in town since the Jets reported on Thursday so perhaps that’s the reason that the crowd was smaller than I expected.
This time, Jets head coach Rex Ryan didn’t have to walk through the dorms at SUNY Cortland yelling, “Revis where are you?”
With Jets camp underway, Craig instructed Al Dukes to call WFAN’s own Peter Schwartz, who covers the Jets for the station, to get his take on the goings-on up in Cortland…
Take a deep breath and relax, Jets fans. Your All-Pro cornerback is in Cortland.
Getting back to Cortland could not have come at a better time for the Jets. They are trying to turn the page on the locker room turmoil of a year ago as they look to regain the chemistry and the magic that they had during the first two years of the Rex Ryan era.
Looking for a pretty cool summer getaway? How about Central New York?
After two days of Jets mandatory minicamp, there are still several main storylines that surround the team.
