Simon Says Jets Camp Report Day 2

The Scene- A crowd of 1,700 greeted the Jets for their first day of training camp but the prospects of rain, plus the fact that it was a Wednesday kept the crowds much smaller for today’s workout. The Jets moved much of the practice towards the middle fields today offering a glimpse into their field rotation schedule for camp. While the weather was sunny and surprisingly cool for the first hour of camp it got ugly quickly, with a drenching downpour soaking fans and players for the final hour and a half. It rained consistently for that time, but the drills still went on with no hitches despite the rain.

 

The Drills- Again practice was a steady mix of position drills, special teamwork, and walkthroughs featuring the offense and the defense in game situations. From what I can make out from my thoroughly soaked notebook, the D Line spent much of their drills at the tackling dummy, while the running backs did a variety of in game situations and resistance training. The quarterbacks again worked on audibles this time notably working on audibling the tight ends, and working on game situations with the receivers. Finally practice was capped off by full game situations in which the offense had a set amount of time to run through plays and score on the defense, with both the one’s, two’s and three’s executing well, notably on the hurry up situations.

 

The Good- Today it seemed as though a lot of the players sidelined until Thursday took an active role in both participating with practice and talking to their position coaches and fellow teammates. Rookie Muhammad Wilkerson spent a lot of practice talking with Kendrick Ellis, as he ran through D Line drills. Ladainian Tomlinson also watched the running back drills and was as active as one could be wearing soccer socks and a headband. Mike Westoff looks like he is already whipping the Special Teamers into shape, a large amount of practice was spent on punt and kickoff coverage and the Jets punt block team showed noticeable progression as practice went on. Also even after practice ended and rain was still coming down the D Line still took time to sign for fans who braved the conditions and stayed three hours plus until the end of practice.

 

The Bad- Several running backs including Greene, struggled catching balls out of the backfield during the drills, possibly due to the conditions, but still obviously not an excuse. Other then that it was another very fluid practice for Gang Green although much of the team is still sidelined waiting for Thursday. So far after two days I’d say it is more JV then Varsity, but that will change once Plax, Holmes, Scott, and a host of others finally don the practice pads.

 

 

The Next Day-Practice again same time as always 2:15 should be a big training camp day for the Jets tomorrow with all of the players returning.
