Some quickie stats from Green/White Practice

Have to pound out a few things for tomorrow's newspaper but here's a couple things from today's Green and White Practice, won by the Green Team, 10-7. Chad Pennington quarterbacked the Green Team and Kellen Clemens led the White. The practice was non-contact.

GREEN TEAM

Pennington: 8 for 14, 115 yards and a 27-yard touchdown pass to Jerricho Cotchery.

Cotchery: 4 receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown.

WHITE TEAM

Clemens: 8 for 22 137 yards and a 55-yard touchdown pass to Dustin Keller

Keller: 4 catches for 79 yards and that touchdown.

Washington: 3 receptions for 32 yards.

Back with more later. Oh, and no picks by either quarterback. And Mike Nugent made a 45-yard field goal for the Green team that made it 10-0 in the third quarter, then missed a 48-yarder in the fourth, also for the Green, that would have extended the lead to 13-7. It sailed wide right.

OH, PART II: Ben Graham, punting from the end zone in the second quarter, unloaded an 86-yard punt.

Feel free to discuss the quarterback play. Or Keller's general unstopable-ness (not a word, so what). Or Cotchery. Or enjoy the rest of your Saturday afternoon/night.

Humorous sidenote of the afternoon: As the media was interviewing Chad Pennington afterward, some fans still in the bleachers began a "C-H-A-D" chant. One of the people doing the interviewing was WFAN's Jerry Recco, and toward the end of the interview people started chanting his name. I have absolutely nothing sarcastic to say about that whatsoever. But you just stay classy, Jerry Recco.

Also, the practice/game/scrimmage was broadcast on AM 1050 ESPN. If Bob Wischusen, the voice of the Jets and innumerable televised college football broadcasts, wished he was elsewhere, it didn't sound like it. A pro's pro for making a SCRIMMAGE more than listenable.
