Nothing but Jets

New York Jets news, commentary and insider info from beat writer Kimberley A. Martin.


Mother Nature wins

The Jets might've just wrapped up the quickest practice in franchise history.

A nasty storm has rolled through Central New York, causing practice to be called after only 27 minutes. It's coming down really hard and there is an alarm going off to alert people of a tornado warning here in Cortland.

Mark Sanchez and Kellen Clemens didn't get to throw many passes, obviously, but they each got three off before the skies opened up.

Sanchez, who went 1-for-3 with a sack, continued to be off the mark (no pun intended). He overthrew Jerricho Cotchery along the right sideline on his first pass, was sacked by LB Bryan Thomas (though it wasn't his fault because Thomas was unblocked), and completed a short pass to WR Brad Smith before overshooting WR Marcus Henry for a would-be touchdown.

Clemens was 1-for-3 with a touchdown, but threw his eighth interception of 11-on-11s when got picked off by DB James Ihedigbo on his first pass of the session. Clemens hit Smith for an 8-yard TD and fired off an incomplete pass before they called the players off the field.

Daily QB Meter (on a scale of 1-5, zero being even): Remains at one in favor of the rook. While Sanchez didn't look great again today, he made the right decisions to try to get scores on those last-play situational series I mentioned in the previous post. Plus, Clemens threw another interception. He has 11 and Sanchez has three.


For those who didn't see it, I wrote a little somehing on NT Howard Green in today's paper. He's a big cat and Rex Ryan thinks getting him was a huge plus for the defense.


Two practices tomorrow with the first at 8:20 a.m. The second is a special teams practice set for 4:15 p.m.
