- In general all the TE's deserve to be mentioned because they are catching everything
thrown to them and are opening up the middle of the field.  So props to Eric Tomlinson,
Jason Vander Laan, Brian Parker and Chris Gragg.  Not "sexy" names but they're doing the
job so far

But I thought we picked Safety in Rd 1, and Rd 2 to stop teams from being able to exploit our D down the middle of the field?

The TE's are so effin' good they cannot be stopped. The only hope is to contain them

While it's still way to early too get excited about anything, even the biggest Hackenberg detractor has to be at least a bit curious to see him play soon. I am looking forward to seeing his improvement in a live game in a few weeks.

Also I can tell, and I know it is early, is that finally coaches are trying to coach around here!!!

Sometime we have coaches that you wonder how they have a job in the NFL!!  I love that KRL saw the coaches coaching and thought that it was notable to point out.

Oh in the premature QB derby it looks like

1. Hack

2. McCown and 3. Petty (but not out of even 2)

The Jets completed their second practice of the season on Sunday. The practice was closed to the public but KRL was in Florham Park covering the action for JetNation.

General Notes

– Final day for the players in shells & shorts.

– Practice ran 2.5 hours.

– Another drop in the number of media members in attendance.

– Ardarius Stewart and Chad Hansen practiced but again were held out of team periods. In addition I didn’t see Morris Claiborne at all today.  Hopefully it wasn’t injury related.

Todd Bowles had this to say on Claiborne being absent:

Yes, it’s for personal reasons and he’ll be back tomorrow.

– There’s a ton of mixing and matching going on right now so it’s impossible to determine #1’s.  Today Jordan Jenkins & Dylan Donahue got OLB reps with the “#1’s”.

– The defense started to unveil some of their blitz packages.  The disguise and timing of the blitzes was excellent.

– Still trying to get a feel for John Morton (OC) and the type of offense he’ll be running.  At this point it seems he’s installing the short & intermediate portions of the passing game.  There hasn’t been a ton of vertical shots down the field.  So far it feels like a “West Coast” offense focused on getting the ball out quickly.  One thing for sure is the TE position will get a ton of targets.

Player Notes

– Austin Seferian-Jenkins had another good day and is starting to “stack” practices. In addition Jordan Leggett had some “splashy” plays with a sweet one handed grab in the red zone from Josh McCown during 7 on 7.  Also Leggett had a 30+ yard TD on a catch from Bryce Petty (blown coverage).

– In general all the TE’s deserve to be mentioned because they are catching everything thrown to them and are opening up the middle of the field.  So props to Eric Tomlinson, Jason Vander Laan, Brian Parker and Chris Gragg.  Not “sexy” names but they’re doing the job so far.

– Leonard Williams was a beast today and took advantage of the blitz packages by getting at least two “sacks”.

– Connor Harris (ILB) didn’t make any “splashy” plays but was getting a ton of “love” from his coaches & teammates.  So I’m assuming he was doing excellent work handling his assignments during his reps.

– The WR group did a better job getting off press coverage today, but was that because Claiborne didn’t play?  We’ll find out.

– Dennard Wilson (DB coach) is really coaching up Derrick Jones (the converted college WR). Staying on him about all the details that go into the CB position.

QB’s

– Better days for Josh McCown & Bryce Petty, they were efficient and unlike on Saturday they didn’t turn the ball over.

– Christian Hackenberg had another solid practice.  His mechanics stayed consistent therefore his throws were consistent.  His best throw was a 25+ yard seam pass to Leggett over Donahue’s head in tight coverage.  Unfortunately for Hackenberg, Donahue stripped the ball out as they went to the ground.  During team periods Morton had to instruct him to tuck & run instead of trying to create something out of nothing.

Standouts

– Leonard Williams
– TE group
– Blitz packages

Concerns

– Can the young WR’s get off press coverage when Claiborne returns?
– When will we see the vertical element in the offense.

Great report, it's making all the waiting for the season bearable. Good to read my man Connor Harris is getting positive reports.

Gotta' be nuts not to be pulling for Harris.

Having some TE's that can do anything at all will be a shock to the system.  This team has truly had some awful awful awful TES' the last number of years while most other teams have at least a viable guy if not a huge play maker.  I also think our retunr game will finally pose a threat to the other team instead of being a threat to us.
