There's a really great piece begging to be written by some enterprising columnist where they spend two days at Jets camp and slap clown shoes on everyone involved in it. Like Hunter S Thompson on the Kentucky Derby. 

 

*wanted to find a link with the text to the Thompson Kentucky Derby article and I get one and it's Grantland providing an annotated version of the text where they try--and fail-- to out-snark the original and this is the embodiment of Bill Simmons' career 

 

http://grantland.com/features/looking-back-hunter-s-thompson-classic-story-kentucky-derby/

I was just thinking, "You mnow what the best magazine feature ever written needs? Explanation and annotation by a bunch of guys who spend their spare time figuring out which of their friends is E and which is Turtle."

I'm sure there's going to be a WR cast off from another team this Summer that the Jets will pick up, or, they'll need to make a trade. How can you possibly evaluate Hack with Robby Anderson as his now #1 WR. Decker was a pro. We all know they are mailing 2017 in but you still need to have some level of professionalism.

Decker was NOT a pro, thats the whoie point. He was a decent player that was a distraction and cancer and an "all bout me" player. He has no role on a rebuild

The only blemish on his night was when he was picked off by rookie safety Marcus Maye, who returned it about 60 yards for a touchdown (though McCown disputed that Maye actually would've gotten the touchdown if players were allowed to tackle).

 

Blemish is an extremely poor word choice for the worst mistake a QB could make.  Was the rest of his night perfect?  It didn't seem so.  I was on board to sign this guy as a mentor (my friend is a Browns fan and wished he stayed as a QB coach there), but I am completely over this guy going near the field on Sundays.  It'll be a complete waste of time.  If Hack isn't ready, start Petty (who I root for).  I'm exaggerating when I say we are the only team in the league that has QBs that throw interceptions on screen passes.

The NY Jets held their annual Green & White Scrimmage on Saturday night at Metlife Stadium. The turnout from the fans was pretty impressive. I didn’t see an official head count anywhere but the parking lot was packed and the lower level of the stadium was pretty crowded. The night was actually a practice \ scrimmage. There was no tackling so that always changes things. A QB can take more chances when he is wearing a red jersey. We live tweeted the night, you can scroll through our feed below and get a full recap of the action including several photos.

Quick Hits

  • Marcus Maye intercepted Chad McCown and took it the distance. A very impressive play and a good start for the rookie safety.
  • Chris Harper (WR) continued a strong training camp and had a great night.
  • Quincy Enunwa dropped to the ground after dropping a Hackenberg pass close to the goal line. He fell after trying to get up in what was a very scary moment. The Jets have described it as a neck injury, and Todd Bowles said it is the same injury that kept Quincy off the field during minicamp.
  • The Jets run defense looked good, although like I mentioned earlier when they aren’t tackling it is hard to judge completely.
  • All three QBs had moments that were impressive and not so impressive.
    • Chad McCown continues to get the first snaps in every drill. He had a long TD pass but also the low point of the night (the pick 6 by Maye).
    • Hackenberg wasn’t terrible but wasn’t great. Except for one play, he stepped up in the pocket and threw a 24 yard touchdown pass to Jordan Leggett.
    • Bryce Petty was having a nice night during 7 on 7’s but didn’t stand out during the scrimmage.
  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins is the tight end we have been hoping for, he seems poised for a solid season.

True story:

1. It has been a long day. :)

2. When I tagged the post on the front page nothing came up for McCown. I was shocked, we have written about him many times.

You think that would have set off an alarm for me. Nope it didn't. I fixed it now though, thank you.
