- Three things we learned on Day 13
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Another day, another round of fights at the Jets. My takeaways:
1. No more Mr. Nice Guy. We saw a different side of Rex Ryan, who lashed into his team — twice — after practice skirmishes. It was as angry as I’d ever seen him. Clearly, he’s trying to run a tighter ship this season, judging by some of his actions in training camp. Let’s see how the team responds. If it continues to display a thug mentality in practice, it’ll be a telling commentary on his ability to control the team.
- Holmes: ‘I felt a pop’
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Santonio Holmes fractured a rib in 2008, back in his Steelers days, and he thought he did it again Saturday night in the Jets’ intrasquad scrimmage.
“One of the guys fell on top of me in the scrimmage,” Holmes said Tuesday, commenting for the first time since the injury. “That was the first thing I mentioned to the trainers, I think something broke. I felt a pop.”
The X-ray was negative, according to the team, but Holmes did sustain some cartilage damage, which can be just as painful as an actual fracture.

- TUESDAY’s RECAP: Woody’s Wise Words
CORTLAND, N.Y. — It would be difficult for the Jets to top the headlines that were made in yesterday’s practice — a team-wide brouhaha that spilled over the sidelines and into your timelines — but an appearance from team owner Woody Johnson will have to do.

- Rex report: Tired of the same old questions
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Naturally, Rex Ryan’s daily news conference was dominated by questions about Tuesday’s practice scuffles and his heated reaction on the field.
When reporters tried to connect the fights to last season’s turmoil, Ryan bristled slightly. He wants to move forward, yet the 2011 debacle keeps coming up.
“I’m, quite honestly, sick and tired of talking about last year, because I think it’s a joke I have to answer questions about that every single time,” he said.
- Camp Confidential: New York Jets
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Bart Scott just wouldn’t stop talking.
The charismatic linebacker’s mouth was running 100 miles per hour during New York Jets practice this past weekend. Scott got on the Jets’ quarterbacks, Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez. Scott got on Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano. Scott got under the skin of the offensive linemen.
No one was immune in training camp — and Jets coach Rex Ryan likes it that way.
“The funny thing is when you talk like that, it puts pressure on you to play well,” Ryan said.
- Owner surprised by Tebow coverage
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Woody Johnson should be thankful his football team decided to fight amongst each other for the second straight day, stealing the day’s headline. Otherwise, he’d be in the spotlight for his curious comments about the media coverage of Tim Tebow.

The Jets’ owner, who arrived in Cortland Monday night, chatted with reporters during the Tuesday morning practice and offered his take on Tebow-Mania.
- Stephen Hill On The Camp Scuffle
New York Jets WR was asked about the fights in practice and Rex Ryan’s reaction to them. Here is the brief Q&A session: On practice being lively… Definitely lively. Everyday is lively. We are just coming out here and making practice physical. The tussle was uncalled for but we came together and Rex Ryan got [...]
- Practice report: Revis battles "tightness"
CORTLAND, N.Y. — A second straight day of fighting was the big story, but let’s take a look at what else happened in practice.
CB Darrelle Revis was in and out of practice with “stiffness,” according to Rex Ryan, who didn’t provide any specifics. Later, a team spokesman said it was lower-back stiffness, not the hamstring that bothered him early in camp.

Passing drills (7-on-7)
Revis left the field at the start of practice, returned a short time later with the trainer and was stretched out on the sideline by a member of the training staff.

- Morning wake-up call: Day 13
CORTLAND, N.Y. — The Jets return to their regular practice schedule, which means an early start — 8 a.m. Tuesday’s practice is closed to the public. The media are allowed to watch, so if there’s another melee (Rex Ryan doesn’t think Monday’s altercation should be termed a melee), you’ll still be able to read all about it on ESPNNewYork.com.
This will be the second-to-last practice before the preseason opener, Friday night in Cincinnati.
Players in the spotlight will be C Nick Mangold (on his way back from the London Olympics), WR Santonio Holmes (rib injury), RB (Smokin’) Joe McKnight and rookie DB D’Anton Lynn, McKnight’s sparring partner.

By merit, it gives credit [...]

- Three things we learned on Day 12
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Take-aways from Monday’s practice:
1. It’s time to play another team. The Jets have reached the point in training camp where they’re tired of hitting each other. That gets tedious, which leads to frustration, which leads to what happened Monday: A Joe McKnight/D’Anton Lynn scuffle that quickly escalated into a melee about 25 feet from the sideline, near the fans. As far as training-camp fights go, this wasn’t anything close to a 10 on the nasty scale, but it was embarrassing for a team looking to shed its image as a dysfunctional outfit.
- NY Jets Training Camp Report 08/06
The story from training camp today was that a multiple player scuffle broke out after running back Joe McKnight threw a football at D’Anton Lynn. What Joe McKnight may not been aware of was that D’Anton Lynn is the son of NY Jets running back coach Anthony Lynn. Reports say that up to 20 players [...]

- Hill can be the Game Changer for the Jets!
Stephen Hill, a 6′ 4″ wide receiver who runs a 4.3 sec 40 yard dash at 215 lbs, can be the game changer the Jets need. And, with all the reports of his speed and catches over the best Corner in football, I can’t help but get a bit excited. I can see Sparano lulling defenses to sleep with run plays and then, bam, the long TD pass to Hill.
