Here with the quick report from this morning's practice. I'll be taking off in a bit, and Rod will have everything you need for the afternoon session which is scheduled to start right before 5.

The offense concluded the morning session working through a two-minute drill scenario. Here is how it broke down:

-- Jets down 20-14, ball in own territory, Sanchez led first team marched down the field to the red zone with seven seconds remaining. On the last possession, Sanchez failed on a pass as time expired.

Same scenario: a Clemens led second group lost a total of ten yards over the course of their first three downs. On fourth down Clemens connected over the middle with Coles, just short of a first down.

Both losses for the offense were just parts of another day -- the second day in a row where the defense out-performed the offense. Another example of the defense's dominance came on a tipped ball where, Antonio Cromartie intercepted a pass thrown by Sanchez intended for Leonhard.

-- After practice, Braylon Edwards echoed Joe Namath's Super Bowl aspiration comments of last week.

Said Edwards: "This is definitely a super team and they voted to take that step."

-- Rex Ryan said no one of the coaching staff or any player has watched a Giants tape yet in preparation for Monday night's game.

-- Nick Folk went 5 for 5 today, and Braylon Edwards was actually in there on one play to block a kick.

-- Ryan said Mike Westhoff has already begun special teams game planning for specific regular season opponents.

-- Nick Mangold was out again for a second day in a row with and injury to head, not a concussion.

 

Again, check back in later for Rod's updates from the afternoon, as the team will be going through  full session after special teams only yesterday.
