Today, it’s for real! The NY Jets open their 2014 season against the Oakland Raiders. I can’t wait. Defense So much has been written about the depleted DB situation, we will finally get to see it get played out on the field. I’m waiting to see how Coach Rex Ryan uses Rookie safety Calvin Pryor. […]
Hitting Is Here! Jets had practice in pads today! Finally, a chance to see some hitting, blocking, pass rush and tackling. Quarterbacks Geno Smith led first-team offense vs first-team defense (except for 3 plays), and Michael Vick led second-team offense vs second-team defense.

Emotions! I’m filled with them tonight. I just spent 11 days at the N.Y. Jets Training camp in Cortland New York. My life with the Jets began in 1962 (they were still the Titans) with my dad as Team Doctor, through 7 years of working for them, to returning every summer and still being a […]

Camp is off to a great start! Here are a few photos from the last couple days!

Today Geno Smith played with the first team offense for much of the time and had a solid practice. He and Stephen Hill looked […]
There’s Nothing like Training Camp What a great first day at Jet camp. Not a cloud in the sky and 75 degrees, I had a chance to reconnect with all the Jet beat writers on the sidelines. Practice was quick tempo and both Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith threw well. The team has had a […]
Training camp 2013 is finally here! I’m leaving tomorrow for Cortland and cannot wait for practices to begin! I must admit I miss the old 2-a-day real hitting practices where I could watch and tell who was a hitter, not just who got to a spot. There is nothing like seeing guys get after it every practice […]
