- Inside Look: ESPN’s Idiotic Coverage Of New York Jets Training Camp
An inside look at ESPN’s idiotic coverage of New York Jets training camp
- Three things we learned on Day 8
CORTLAND, N.Y. — A quick take on Thursday at the Jets:
1. The President isn’t high on the QB situation. No, we’re not referring to Neil Glat, the Jets’ president. We’re talking about President Obama, who, as a guest on an Ohio sports station, threw shade on the Mark Sanchez-Tim Tebow dynamic. Obama said he’s not a fan of QB controversies at the start of the season, adding that Jets fans “should be nervous.” Maybe he would have a different opinion if he had seen Tebow in the Wildcat.

The Offense Wins the Goal Line Battle
- Brandon going to Canton to see Curtis
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Veteran RG Brandon Moore will skip Saturday night’s intrasquad scrimmage to attend Curtis Martin’s Hall-of-Fame induction in Canton.
Moore was a first-year starter in 2004, the year Martin won the NFL rushing title at the age of 31 — the oldest player to accomplish that milestone.
“That was a big year for him and I was part of a good offensive line that helped him get that rushing title at a time when people were claiming he was old and lost a step,” Moore said Thursday.
- Tebow’s endorsements stay put
CORTLAND, N.Y. — One walk to Times Square is all it takes to see evidence of the Tim Tebow brand. When a trade from Denver became evident, the Jets’ backup quarterback leaned to New York over Jacksonville, and plenty speculated it was due in part to the platform that Madison Avenue offers.
Now, a few months after Tebow became a Jet, he said he hasn’t added any more endorsements to a list that includes Jockey, Nike and FRS energy drinks.
“I don’t really think so,” he said.
- Holmes is sore … his legs, that is
CORTLAND, N.Y. — WR Santonio Holmes missed practice Thursday with what he described as general soreness, refusing to say when he plans to return.
“As soon as the trainers say I can get back on the field, that’s when I’ll be back on the field,” Holmes said during his once-a-week session with reporters — which lasted all of four minutes.
Holmes said he’s experiencing “tightness” and “soreness,” but he wouldn’t give any specific body parts. In minicamp, he sat out with a well-documented hamstring injury.
- Jets move scrimmage to stadium
CORTLAND, N.Y. — The 2009 and 2010 intrasquad scrimmmages at SUNY Cortland were held on a grass field, but the Jets are moving Saturday night’s Green and White scrimmage to the school’s 6,500-seat stadium to accommodate a larger-than-usual crowd. Tebow-Mania, baby.
But the stadium field is synthetic turf — the name brand is A-Turf — and some coaches get queasy about playing on turf because they believe there’s a greater injury risk. Rex Ryan said he’s not concerned.
- Rex Report: Tebow Live
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Rex Ryan hasn’t ever allowed live tackling of a quarterback in training camp, but he’s never had Tim Tebow. The Jets coach said it was easy to see why today was Tebow’s best day in practice.
“That’s because we got to do a little live football,” Ryan said.
On the day Tebow got in some goal-line work, he took a direct snap in a Wildcat-type play and ran the ball up the middle to score. The red jersey didn’t matter, and starter Mark Sanchez won’t be risked in the same way.

- Morning wake-up call: Day 8
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Thursday should be a fun practice.
The Jets will be in full pads and, for the first time in camp, they will conduct live goal-line and short-yardage drills. In other words, the pads will be popping and there will be actual hitting. It’s the closest thing to real football you will see in an NFL training camp.
Players in the spotlight will be QBs Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow (both are scheduled to address the media), WR Santonio Holmes (he sat out the end of Wednesday’s practice with an undisclosed injury) and the entire injury-riddled receiving corps.
- A Few Things We Have Learned From The Jets Offense
Here a few things we can observe from the first few days of camp. Sanchez looks to be in the best shape of his career. When Sanchez drove into Cortland, wearing asleeveless shirt, it was pretty obvious that he had bulked up and was raring to go. Day in and day out every pass that Sanchez [...]
