CORTLAND, N.Y. — We’ve reached the dog days of training camp, but there was nothing tedious about Monday’s practice. Along with a brief melee that involved about 20 players, the practice included a number of memorable moments.
Unofficial stats from practice
Team drills (11-on-11)
Passing drills (7-on-7)
Let’s start with the play of the day, maybe the play of camp. In a 7-on-7 drill, QB Mark Sanchez threw a 50-yard TD bomb to rookie WR Stephen Hill.
- Esiason, Namath rip Tebow
A pair of ex-Jets quarterbacks have hopped aboard the Tim Tebow hate train during the past few days.
Boomer Esiason and Joe Namath each blasted their former team’s acquisition of Tebow, with Esiason calling for his release.
“I’m just telling you right now, I would (cut him),” Esiason said on his WFAN radio show Monday, “and I’ll tell you why I would. It’s not in anyway, shape or form — I think — benefiting this team.

- Rex report: Coach likes Mark’s presence
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Rex Ryan addressed the media before practice Monday, touching on a number of subjects. Let’s start with QB Mark Sanchez.
Ryan said Sanchez has improved his pocket presence. What does that mean? It means he’s doing a better job of sliding in the pocket and protecting the ball with two hands. In the past, Sanchez was notorious for holding the ball with one hand in the face of the rush, resulting in many fumbles.
“His pocket presence is the best I’ve ever seen,” Ryan said.

- Morning wake-up call: Day 12
CORTLAND, N.Y. — The Jets return to the practice field Monday after a day off. Practice is open to the public. Notice the time change; practice starts two hours later than usual.
Players in the spotlight will be WR Santonio Holmes (rib injury, day-to-day), WR Jeremy Kerley (still nursing a hamstring injury), QB Matt Simms (coming off a nice showing in the scrimmage) and RG Brandon Moore (returns from his trip to the Hall-of-Fame induction).
- Can Tebow help at the goal line?
CORTLAND, N.Y. — It became a big story Thursday when the Jets, in a “live” goal-line drill, unveiled the Wildcat with Tim Tebow, who ran for a touchdown on a power play. They believe Tebow can be a weapon in goal-line situations.
A closer look reveals the Jets were among the top goal-line teams last season, so it’s fair to wonder how much better they can be with Tebow.

- Camp update: Ups and downs
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Taking stock of the Jets after seven practices and one intrasquad scrimmage:
QB Mark Sanchez — Tim who? Sanchez is having a very good camp, considering it’s a new offense and his receiving corps is depleted. It’s important to note that, even on his bad days, he’s not committing turnovers.
TE Dustin Keller — He played well in the scrimmage (five targets, four catches, 34 yards), continuing a solid camp. With all the uncertainty at wide receiver, Keller is a critical piece on offense.
