Jets Mini Camp 2009 - Day 1


Recommended Posts

Before we get to the events that happened today we have to go back 23 years ago. Back in 1986 The Mets won the World Series and the Giants won the Super Bowl the following year. In the span of 3 months between both New York world championship victories, something happened that would change the future hopes and dreams of all NY Jets fans. On November 11th, 1986 Mark Travis John Sanchez was born in Long Beach, California. As everyone knows the rest is history............so far.

Whether Mark Sanchez will be a bust or not remains to be seen. Only time will tell if he can help ease the pain and agony of Jets fans, who have suffered through some of the most embarrassing and heart wrenching seasons NFL fans have ever seen.

Of course not just 1 man can win a Super Bowl, but it doesn't hurt to have a promising young QB on your roster.

Why am I making it seem as if today was Mark Sanchez day? Because in Florham Park the feeling in the air, and throughout the crowd, was as if everyone had come there to see Mark Sanchez. Wherever he was on the field, the crowd flocked to that end of the field. Whether if it was out of curiosity to see what the hype was all about or whether young girls were there to swoon over this GQ model, it felt as if there was a new sense of hope with Jets fans who were there. After last season, a season filled with tremendous highs and lows because of Brett Favre, hope is what every Jets fan needs this season. Hope is what many fans are banking on with the additions of Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan.

Of course the big question is Clemens or Sanchez.

Both Sanchez and Clemens started out the day sharp. As the day wore on Clemens threw to nobody and Sanchez threw an INT. (Ok so I'm not that good at details) :D

And now for what you've all been waiting for.....................................................................PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you get a chance to go to a practice. Do it and make a day of it. It's well worth it.

Great pictures man. I'll try and take some today, but they'll be crappy phone ones on my Voyager. :)

And if you took E43 on 80, you might not be too far from me!

Thanks. The videos my camera too are junky. Hopefully I'll get them uploaded tonight.

I came from Wayne, which is where I am taking classes, but I live in Lake Hopatcong.

Why is Gholston wearing the dunce cap? Is that supposed to identify the defensive captain or the guy that wears the earpiece? Or is it an actual dunce cap?

Good question. I just noticed Rex grabbing his junk. :D
