A day in the life of the Jets

By Kara Yorio - SportingNews

Coach Herm Edwards has carefully planned the Jets' training camp. The length and difficulty of practice days vary, and no schedule is set in stone, but early in camp -- before injuries start piling up -- the days should go about as planned. This is the actual schedule as typed by Edwards for Saturday, July 30, the second day of team practices and the first in pads.

8:45 a.m.) Not every practice is in full pads. Some are in shells (helmets, shoulder pads and shorts) or spiders (helmets, lighter shoulder pads and shorts). Edwards wants to push players and work them hard but not in such a way that would cause injury.

(9:27 and 9:37 a.m.) Each period is run quickly. Edwards wants players to think fast, as in game situations. The scoreboard clock is set for each period, and a staff member blows a horn with 2 minutes left, then again when the period is over -- if he gets the OK from Edwards. If a group isn't finished running the allotted number of plays, Edwards delays the horn and practice is extended.

(10:38 a.m.) Veterans are cheerleaders here because rookies don't get enough reps otherwise. Rookie-only drills are not scheduled in every practice.

(12:15 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.) Some quick coaching gets done during practice as players return to the huddle to run the next play. But after reviewing practice video, position coaches provide detailed instruction in off-field meetings.

(3:57 p.m.) Players run through position-specific drills such as footwork reps for defensive backs and long toss for quarterbacks.

(4:42 p.m.) Players can get water at any time during practice, but everyone has a drink and quick break during the designated water times.

10:15 p.m.) Chicken tenders, wings, pizza, cold cuts, yogurt, ice cream and fresh fruit are among the available snacks, which are color-coded by calorie and fat into three levels.

(10:30 p.m.) The injury report is the most important part of the meeting because injuries can alter the next day's practice schedule.

(11 p.m.) Each night there are two coaches and one trainer on bed-check duty.

Yea, I'm sure Hermy can handle all those precise schedules and timing of all those activities in one day. :shock:

that is exactly what herm brings to the table - preparation, organization, and discipline. it is not an acciden that the jets are the least penalized team year in and year out.
