Day two of practice underway here at Cortland

What happened at Training Camp today?

SNY’s Andrew Johnston and Leonard Orman are at Jets Training Camp, and here’s their dispatch of what they saw and heard from Tuesday’s camp…

Orman:

  • Jets practiced goal line drills Thursday. The offense had trouble getting into the end zone against a very stout defense.
  • Rookie Calvin Pryor returned to practice and participated in individual drills in a limited basis while wearing a red non-contact jersey
  • Demario Davis constantly works on his craft. He does individual drills with a coach on the side while others stretch before practice. It’s amazing to watch.
  • Darryl Richardson saw plenty of action because Bilal Powell sat out practice. The Jets will have a hard decision to make as to whether they want to carry four running backs. He looks good.
  • During passing drills, Chris Johnson showed off his skills as a pass catcher. On one play he juked David Harris and ended up being wide open for a catch. He caught a long TD pass later in the drill.
  • Jace Amaro had a diving catch in 11-on-11. Drew a pass interference in goal line drill
  • Oday Aboushi saw time with the starters at right guard. He continues to impress.
  • Jason Babin pressured Mike Vick on the goal line and forced him to throw the ball away.
  • Defense shut down the running game during goal line portion of practice. Chris ivory was the only one who had any success. Ivory has looked great.
  • David Nelson beat Dimitri Patterson for a long gain during 11-on-11.
  • Sudfeld caught a 10-yard-pass during 11 on 11, saw that no one was around him and ran away from the defense for a 60+ yard touchdown. An impressive display of speed.


Johnston:

Offense

  • Jace Amaro showing no ill signs of knee strain.
  • Zach Sudfeld really looks good, but needs to translate it to live action. He had a long touchdown during 11-on-11.
  • Oday Aboushi got a lot of attention during individual drills
  • David Nelson has locked up the No. 3 WR spot.
  • Willie Colon is moving well, especially his mouth! Love the passion he plays with. Game changer.
  • Neither third-string quarterback looked good today. The more I see, the more realistic chance they only carry two QBs into the season.

Defense

  • Tons of penalties during goal line drills. There were a few huge hits.
  • Quinton Coples was very vocal and made a few impressive plays on the edge.
  • David Harris looked great in team coverage, breaking up a few passes. Nick Bellore was a beast, with two huge stuffs.

"David Nelson has locked up the No. 3 WR spot."


Assuming you mean the outside spot across decker, with Kerley in the slot. So you think Stephen Hill has no shot at beating out Nelson for playing time? That means Hill is the 4th WR and doesn't play specials. But all indications are he's had a pretty good camp?

at least Amaro is getting his feet wet, he is gonna be counted on a lot

It's so great how we're now talking about how hard it will be to keep certain RBs and WRs. What a difference a couple years makes, back when we had that garbage dump of a skill position group

People keep mentioning that they'd like to see the Jets carry only two QB's. I would agree with this if Vick (has a tendency to get injured) wasn't one of the two.

Really excited for this season.  Feels like 2010 all over again.  A lot of talent and bravado to match. 

I think the difference is we have more potential on offense, thanks to a better coach in Marty.

I think the great front 7 can make up for the secondary and allow them to look good.

Cimini is all over the internet saying Vick did not get one rep today with the first team. He is stirring the pot with a HUGE mixer; look out gangrels!

I admit, I might not guzzle the kool aid like some cats here, but I do on occasion, take a few nips and this quote has me fully boned!

Kyle Fuller has apparently looked pretty good so far in camp.  I really liked him though it didn't matter come time of the Jets pick.

We will prove Cimini wrong this season. He will be gangrel bait!

I thought people hated it when Fox used to highlight the pucks during hockey games?

@MarshRandy I just use an SNY account. Sure there is no picture, and I registered when screen names were capped at 10 characters... but at least I don't need two accounts! (LF sucks hard)

I think too that the thought is that if Simms and Boyd are as hideous as reported there's not much difference between keeping one of them and just signing a guy off the street if the need arises.

@Tequila Joe If Vick is the #2, it's fine. It's highly unlikely two QB's get hurt in the same game, and if so, you're probably losing no matter who plays QB.

@UncleJoesJetFarm 

How is it stirring the pot? By all accounts, Smith has been better in training camp than Vick. So it naturally follows that he'd be given more reps.

@UncleJoesJetFarm Can you please seriously stop spamming cimini's twitter feed. If we wanted to see everything the guy says, we would go on twitter.

@Brendan @Tequila Joe It's actually happened before. In 2005 Pennington and Fiedler went down in a game and subsequently we lost the game in OT. Every game counts and when you have a QB like Vick you have to give yourself the best chance to win and that means carrying 3 QB's. The odds your third stringer leads you to victory is slim but it's better than marching out a guy with no experience.

@Tequila Joe He's a backup. He would be coming into a game fresh and he might be "made of glass" but you act like it's a certainty he gets hurt as soon as he plays, which obviously isn't the case.

Newsflash: they never activate 3 qbs anyway (it'd be a giant waste). If, by some really unlikely circumstance, both qbs get injured in one game, you finish it off with kerley (not much of a downgrade from Simms/Boyd) anyway, and activate a qb off the practice squad for the next week.

There's no point in carrying 3 qbs.

@Tequila Joe that was a rough year to be a jet fan especially that herm and bradway traded 2005s first round pick for doug jolley

@UncleJoesJetFarm 

I normally don't get involved in the petty squabbles here on the forum but seriously Joey -- cool it.

If you consider yourself a Jets fan, the rest of the fan base is politely asking you to town it down.  You are acting like an over-caffeinated 7 year old hopped up on pixie stix.

@Brendan His bosses are his biggest backers and they love his pot stirring, you guys feed the beast, lol

@Disgruntled Jets Fan Newsflash: Never? That's not true...In 2011 the NFL expanded the 45 man roster to a 46 man roster but prior to the rule change every team was allowed a third QB (he was essentially a safety net in case both QB's got hurt) who didn't count as part of the 45 man roster. In 2011 the NFL changed the rule (check out 2011 Bears vs. Packers playoff game ) to allow a 46 man roster and most teams decided to use that extra spot on another position instead of QB because they feel depth at other positions are more necessary. The key words in all of this is MOST TEAMS. Some teams still carry three QB's as part of the 46 man roster. Why do they do it? I don't know, but I'm guessing they might have Michael Vick as their backup...

@UncleJoesJetFarm Wouldn't he just be re-gifting what you sent him?  Won't you be slightly offended?

@UncleJoesJetFarm  A) His bosses aren't around here. B) We don't feed anything, you bring "the best" here, where we want nothing to do with him.

@Tequila Joe @Brendan But he's played a full game a bunch of times, and a full game is really all we need him for. If Geno is going to be out long term, then we might want to look into getting another backup for him, but until then it's unnecessary.

@Tequila Joe as long as ive been a fan i really cant think of a worse trade than that one...that also might be one of the worst trades in sports history

@Brendan @UncleJoesJetFarm How do you know? You dont feed anything? LOL Just mention Rich and the comments fly, like now, lol

@rstysanchz @Tequila Joe Actually a worse trade might be the Raiders trading our 26th pick (pick they got for Jolley) for the 23rd and taking Fabian Washington instead of Aaaron Rodgers. Of course hindsight is 20/20...

@UncleJoesJetFarm Talking about him means dick. Page clicks are what his bosses care about, not random people talking about him on non-ESPN affiliated blogs.

@Tequila Joe i was just looking at that draft on wiki and i never knew roddy white was drafted in 2005 for some reason i thought he was alot younger

@Brendan @UncleJoesJetFarm Wrong, image and attention no matter where it comes from is what they want. Even if he is the bad boy of Jets reporting. That fire Rich petition, he probably got a raise, lol

@Brendan @UncleJoesJetFarm That also. But that is not the only thing. The internet from all sources is a pipeline. It is all tied together. If he can raise hell on many sites, his bosses love it!
