Today's portion of the Jets Camp in Cortland consists of a intra-team scrimmage which will begin at 6 p.m.

The scrimmage looks to last roughly an hour and a half and will showcase the 1st, 2nd and 3rd team offense and defense -- with the 1st team getting the reps to start practice.

Scrimmage will begin in about ten minutes, until then here are some thoughts on what both Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez are looking to get out of today's scrimmage:


Ryan: "I want to see guys be Jets. We don't have the roster set. We have a bunch of them. I want to see some of these young guys compete. The cream will rise to the top and we are looking for the Jets. Guys have to be willing to lay it out there and have at it. I see John Conner everyday flying through people. I think we are heading in the right direction. Are we there yet as a team? Absolutely not, but we're getting there."


Sanchez: "High completion percentage, hopefully a couple of touchdowns, some good drives, sustaining a couple of drives, eliminate turnovers and pre snap penalties. Those are some of the things that come to mind right away."
