This Week in Tweets: Volume 3 (Special Last Week Edition)

I forgot to do this yesterday, but I was experiencing computer problems anyways so it may not have even mattered. I decided to put every other tweet in blockquote format this week instead of just doing half the page that way. I figured it would be easier on the eyes like this. Without further ado...

A Few Quick Practice Notes From Last Week

Santonio Holmes runs quick in passing drill, makes leaping catch. #babysteps #Jets— Greg Logan (@GregLogan1) August 26, 2013
Rex says #Jets tried to simulate no-huddle today. "I don't think we did a great job....Should be interesting playing against Philly"— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) August 27, 2013

Notes From Thursdays Game

Santonio Holmes in full uniform taking warmups. Obviously won't play but a good sign nonetheless. #NYJ — Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) August 29, 2013

That 4th & 1 was a play wholly designed to see what Simms was made of. Looks like he passed the test. — Brian Bassett (@Brian_Bassett) August 30, 2013

Tweets Regarding Santonio Holmes

Rex says the Jets are "just phasing in" Santonio Holmes. He says "we’ll see" if Holmes can play Week 1 vs. Tampa Bay. — Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) August 27, 2013

Holmes said he's feeling "off and on" pain and he was "a little bit sore" on Sunday after running routes Saturday. No abnormal pain, he said — Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 27, 2013

Holmes on coming back at less than 100%: "I have a long career ahead of me so I'm going to take the best risk for myself and for the team." — Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) August 27, 2013

Holmes is getting treatment three-to-four times a day: "I think the treatments have really helped speed up the process." — Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) August 27, 2013

Santonio notes he didn't have an offseason, so that will affect the speed of conditioning. Also adds he has "a long career" ahead of him — Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) August 27, 2013

Tone says he is making good progress, says he is really limited. Has come a long way, but has no timetable for return. — Eric Allen (@eallenjets) August 27, 2013

Said this to someone in a reply: I wouldn't want to play poker against Holmes. Feel like he is staring through my soul when he answers ?'s. — Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) August 27, 2013

Tweets Regarding Mike Goodson

Rex doesn't think Goodson is that far behind in terms of knowing the offense. Says conditioning will be the biggest challenge. #NYJ — Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) August 27, 2013

Goodson says he was a little nervous about how he'd be received by teammates but they welcomed him with hugs. #Jets — Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) August 27, 2013

Mike Goodson said all the right things yesterday, including that he has grown and matured the past month. — Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) August 28, 2013

Tweets Regarding Geno Smith

No matter where you stand on the Rex/Sanchez issue, one thing is clear: the injury will cost Geno the game reps he needs on Thursday. #NYJ — Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) August 28, 2013

Geno says it was "really helpful" 2 b next to Marty M as he called game. Adds, "Whether I'm ready or not I guess we'll find out on gameday." — Kimberly Jones (@KimJonesSports) August 30, 2013

Last time Mornhinweg addressed the media, sounded like he was leaning towards Sanchez. Seemed more comfortable with his experience. #NYJ — Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) August 31, 2013

Idzik was allegedly the guy stuffing Geno down Rex's throat. Rex was a "Sanchez guy" to a fault. That theory isn't looking so good now. #NYJ — Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) August 31, 2013

Dana Holgorsen, on ESPN radio w/ Lupica, on Geno: "He was one of the few leaders that we did actually have on the team." #nyj — Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) August 27, 2013

Holgorsen continued: "He’s a student of the game, he really is." #nyj — Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) August 27, 2013

Bovada lists Geno Smith at 12/1 to win offensive rookie of the year. #nyj — Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) August 27, 2013

Tweets Regarding Rex Ryan

btw, I wouldn't label Rex's presser an "epic meltdown." We've seen some epic meltdowns. That's not one. Strange & unusual? No doubt. — Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) August 25, 2013

Sad to watch Rex — a proud, accomplished guy — become a listless puppet. I’m trying to imagine Buddy Ryan doing the same, but I can’t. — Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) August 27, 2013

Prisco's take on the Manish/Rex situation: "Rex morphed into Bill Belichick for a night. That's bad. He knows he's dead man walking." — P. Schrager (@PSchrags) August 28, 2013

Tweets Regarding Mark Sanchez

Interesting list -- Rookie QBs who started for playoff teams the last 5 years: Ryan, Flacco, Sanchez, Dalton, Luck, Griffin, Wilson. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) August 25, 2013

Interesting note on Sanchez, who was riding stationary bike: He was only using left arm on moving handlebars. Right arm at his side. #Jets — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 26, 2013

Willie Colon on Sanchez: "He’s battle-tested. I feel like he’s strong enough. I wish sometimes he’d say, ‘F-- the media’ or ‘F--- that' #nyj — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 28, 2013

Tweets Regarding Ryan Spadola

Huge crowd around @DolaOcho in the locker room. Writers, reporters, TV cameras. I would have taken a pic but had too many questions to ask! — Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) August 26, 2013

I'm going to say this now so it's on the record: Really like Ryan Spadola. Think he could benefit from Holmes missing time, if that happens. — Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) August 29, 2013

Other Jets Quoteables

Q: Vlad, is this the best summer you've ever had? ...Vlad: "Yessir!" #jets — Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) August 26, 2013

McKnight on his emotions after getting cut: "I really don’t feel anything. I’m numb to the whole situation." #nyj — Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) August 26, 2013

Matt Simms said his father Phil wasn't at the stadium to see him lead #Jets past Eagles. "But he watched from home, I believe" — Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) August 30, 2013

Matt Simms: "I just know I went out there & played as hard as I could. And we'll see where it takes me." #jets — Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) August 30, 2013

Willie Colon also said Brian Winters has the talent to eventually be All Pro #jets — Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) August 30, 2013

Former Jet Anthony Becht on Genos Performance Against the Giants

(#Jets cont).. stop reading the papers,reading terrible tweets and looking at stat lines. Lets start w/ the INTs. (1) Spadola catches...cont — Anthony Becht (@Anthony_Becht) August 25, 2013
(#Jets cont)..and deliver that he can learn from..confidence to do that will come. (3) Tuck makes a great play & surprises..cont — Anthony Becht (@Anthony_Becht) August 25, 2013
dropping perfect passes across the board for 3 Qtrs. Add on (5) DROPS.. (3) by Kerley and (1) each by RB & FB. For the game I only...cont — Anthony Becht (@Anthony_Becht) August 25, 2013
in your ability to judge good football play. Off performance there's no question Geno Smith is the game 1 starter vs the #Bucs — Anthony Becht (@Anthony_Becht) August 25, 2013
I have no problem w/ Sanchez playing in 4QTR. I did it in my 10th year. I hope he's ok but truth is Geno would have avoided those sacks. IMO — Anthony Becht (@Anthony_Becht) August 25, 2013
My analysis means nothing as far as Geno's future, but just from last nights first opportunity w/ 1's...he took advantage #jets — Anthony Becht (@Anthony_Becht) August 25, 2013
Rest of #Jets game was exactly how I saw it. Kids got a shot in time if org continues to build around him — Anthony Becht (@Anthony_Becht) August 26, 2013

Other Jets Related Things

FWIW: Jets rank 4th in NFL in total offense, 9th in total defense. Of course, preseason stats don't mean much. #Jets — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 30, 2013
What a difference a year makes: @BigDame900 was fighting for job in preseason year ago; last night, he got night off. Possible #Jets starter — Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) August 30, 2013

#Vikings CB Josh Robinson reminds me a bit of Kyle Wilson. He's usually not beaten badly, but just always seems 3/4 of a step behind his man — Sam Monson (@PFF_Sam) August 30, 2013

#Jets QB Matt Simms, who looked sharp last night, fined $7,875 for celebration (Six-shooter). OL Vlad Ducasse fined $7,875 for leg whip — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 30, 2013

The fines came from the Giants game.

Geno likely Jets QB starter over Sanchez per @Edwerderespn. Smith's game paycheck is $23,824. Sanchez makes $485,294 a game. — darren rovell (@darrenrovell) August 30, 2013

#Jets held 13th annual kickoff lunch. Approx 700 ppl, Woody Johnson co-chair. Raised $800k for NYJ Foundation + Alliance for Lupus Research. — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 28, 2013

Odds from Bovada: Rex to be fired before Week 17 (-200), Sanchez with team in 2014 (+300), More INTs - Cromartie (-150) or Revis (+120) — Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) August 28, 2013

Heard on TV last night: Matt Simms is "starting to make a case for that starting job for the NY Jets." .... That's not close to true. #nyj— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 30, 2013
Jets have an average age of 25.6 years old, per @JimmyKempski: 7th youngest in the NFL. #nyj— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) September 1, 2013
Please, NY media (and others), stop making "news" out of what Joe Namath has to say about the Jets. It's just not.— Ralph D. Russo (@ralphDrussoAP) August 28, 2013
I have a feeling I will be using the story slug "Jets-Moves" often this season. #Jets— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) September 1, 2013

I Know Many of You Don't Put Much Stock in PFF, But Here's Some Stuff Anyways.

Isaiah Trufant allowed just 2 catches/6 targets/2 PBUs. Ricky Sapp, 7 QB pressures. Ducasse only OLM w/ positive grade. #Jets — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 31, 2013
Douzable was followed by Wilkerson, who was really better, since he barely trailed and had roughly 1/3 fewer snaps. #nyj — Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) August 31, 2013

On Roster Cuts

The Turk comes with a friendly unassuming face but cold blooded and deadly heart. No small talk. Grab your iPad and come with me — Clarence Hill (@clarencehilljr) August 27, 2013

To a man, almost every single player being cut during this cutdown knew it was coming. They did. — Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) August 26, 2013
Again, the harsh truth about NFL cutdown day is that most players released today had no realistic chance of ever making the team. — Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) August 30, 2013

NFL is a tough business. Heard Stephen Peterman had bought a house in NJ and his kids were starting school next week. Cut by #nyj yesterday. — Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) August 26, 2013

That's the worst part about cuts I think. Bunch of guys who think they made it today will get dumped when teams pick up other cuts tomorrow — Sam Monson (@PFF_Sam) August 30, 2013

2 most common reasons guys get cut: 1) can't run 2) can't learn — Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) August 25, 2013

First one of the year. $6,000 per week. RT @ndutton13 How much do practice squad players make Andrew?— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) August 27, 2013
For those wondering, some teams delay announcing cuts b/c they think it gives them an advantage stashing guys on practice squad. It doesn't.— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) September 1, 2013

Random Stuff

One takeaway from the preseason: DE depth > OT depth— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) August 22, 2013
Bills CB Stephon Gilmore to miss about eight weeks with a hand/wrist issue. Tough one there but hope is he only misses 5-6 games or so.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) August 26, 2013
Impact of change in policy would be Adderall test puts player in stage program rather than automatic four-game PED suspension.— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) August 27, 2013
How well Tavon Austin transitions to the NFL will most likely affect the draft stocks of Dri Archer of Kent St. & Jalen Saunders of Oklahoma— Scott Wright (@DraftCountdown) August 27, 2013
So SI has the four young QBs on their regional covers. The New Kings. Can we please slow this down? One year. Some with seven starts.— Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) August 28, 2013
Saban PC: "Don't make too much of the depth chart. You made me do a depth chart when I didn't want to do one."— Cecil Hurt (@CecilHurt) August 26, 2013
Word of advice for you folks drafting this week. You're just shopping for groceries. While important, it's really about how you cook.— Matt Waldman (@MattWaldman) August 27, 2013
Can't go all in on guys to fill the ps until you find out if they have been claimed... Arguably the busiest days of the year for GMs— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) September 1, 2013
Thank you, #Dolphins, for announcing your cuts 3 hours after the deadline. Your GM won't be missed in 2014.— Evan Silva (@evansilva) September 1, 2013
Tebow will be fine. He has a lot going for him. Feel for the kids cut today who don't— Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) August 31, 2013
Reported last night that the Pats are strongly leaning to carrying Gronk on the 53-man roster. Ballard/Fells moves make it a near certainty.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) August 30, 2013
Sense that Manziel resolution was, plain and simple, a negotiation, with lawyers aplenty. #DeadlinesSpurAction— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) August 28, 2013
"But he's a winner" Top ten winningest college QBs: K Moore, C McCoy, D Greene, P Manning, Dorsey, Marino, Leinart, Detmer, J Rauch, C Ealey— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) August 26, 2013

Fun With Manish

Waiting for Rex presser ... Per source, there is now $1.01 in the donation jar dedicated to funding the future of the underpaid @MMehtaNYDN.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) August 26, 2013
