Thanks GOB. First day in pads...

Real football begins!

I'm excited. Looking forward to watching Sanchez' continued development with the threat of Tebow to motivate him. I've like the things he's been saying (attack mode etc) and honestly think this is the year that he makes the leap to being a more secure QB for us. If he does that, we win big games this year IMO.

"@Steiny31: Joe McKnight continues to look good. Just had a nice run up the middle. #nyj"

"@Steiny31: Day 3 Stars: @ALLENBOI26, @NBELLORE54, Garrett McIntyre, @AaronMaybin51, Bilal Powell, @Sapp55 and @EllisLankster26. #nyj"

Ricky Sapp and Aaron Maybin are rooming together at camp. These two could be the answer to the Jets OLB pass rushing woes of days old. Loved Sapp coming out of Clemson, but he got hurt early in his career and never really resurfaced. All reports say that Sapp has worked his tail off and is doing great things in practice. Would be awesome if the Maybin/Sapp tandom turns out to be fearsome.

Practice report: Defense prevails

By Jane McManus

CORTLAND, N.Y. -- As good as coach Rex Ryan said the new Tony Sparano offense looked in the first practice of the 2012 season three days ago, things looked a lot different Sunday morning in the team's first practice in pads.

QUARTERBACKS STRUGGLE: This morning, that new offense was dominated by a vintage-looking defense. Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow both went a woeful 1-for-7 passing in full team drills. Things looked a little better in 7-on-7 drills, where Sanchez was 5-for-7 and Tebow was 4-for-6.

Tebow struggled at the start, landing in the dirt in his first rep thanks to Marcus Dixon. He overthrew Eron Riley on the next, sent an incompletion to Stephen Hill and finally got some yardage when he scrambled on the next play. There were some groans in the crowd after his awkward missteps, but Tebow’s scramble brought hearty cheers.

Some wide receiver errors affected Sanchez’ numbers. He sent one to Patrick Turner who ran ahead without looking back for the ball, and Dedrick Epps mishandled another deep ball.

MAYBIN SHINES: Aaron Maybin (at least one sack to add to add to two on Saturday) could’ve been a spokesperson for Red Bull with all the energy he put into pressure. The defense looked good even though Darrelle Revis was held out of the team drills with tightness in his hamstring. The Pro Bowl cornerback said he was prepared to practice, but the training staff was being cautious with his history of hamstring issues.

ALLEN INTERCEPTS TWO: Rookie safety Antonio Allen had two interceptions -- one off Matt Simms and the other off Greg McElroy. McElroy struggled.

INJURY REPORT: With contact, comes injuries. Josh Baker left practice with a very bloody nose after an early special teams period, but returned wearing a red pinny for full team drills later.

DB Royce Adams was stretched on the sideline, with what appeared to be a left leg issue. LB Marcus Dowtin worked out on the side after individual drills, as did FB Fui Vakupuna. And the usual PUP crew of LB Demario Davis, G Terrence Campbell and T Jeff Otah were on the sidelines.

Otah has until July 31 to pass a physical or the trade with the Panthers for the lineman is void.

PUNT RETURNS: With WR Jeremy Kerley (hamstring) out, punt returns were handled by Joe McKnight, Kyle Wilson, Royce Pollard and Dexter Jackson.

This guy is going to be what we thought we were getting with the ghost. So f'ing amped up about the potential for this D!

"@MMehtaNYDN: Rex says Maybin could play in more packages this year: "I could definitely see that. I think he's on his way to earning more responsibility""

"@KMart_LI: Like Landry, Maybin goes "100mph." Says Maybin has to earn a bigger role, but "he's on his way." #nyj"

Now that they have pads on, that'll be the thing to watch with the receivers, especially Hill and Schilens--it doesn't matter how fast you can run if you can't get off the jam. Sounds like that was the case today.
