Saturday Six-Pack

Posted Aug 9, 2014

6 Notes on the Green & White's First Practice Since Thursday's Preseason Victory

I love Rex Ryan. Just when you hit a point in camp when you are literally ready to hit the wall, the most captivating coach in the National Football League goes all beat reporter on us. That’s our guy and we give a lot of credit to ESPNNewYork.com’s Rich Cimini for being a good sport at the podium.

Jets Got Wild: The Jets devoted an entire period to their wildcat package. The big boys should get some extra rest tonight because Ryan indicated the Green & White will work on short yardage and goal line tomorrow.

Harris at a High Level: Soft-spoken, David Harris lets his play do his talking for him. Coming off a 149-tackle campaign, Harris was all over the place early in the win over the Colts with six tackles and a sack. I asked him today if there was a specific area that he was honing in on this camp.

“Just trying to get better with my pass rush responsibilities, trying to be a better leader and trying to limit the mistakes I make,” he said. “Every day, just try to work on one thing — if it’s shedding blocks or just running to the play every play. You can always find something to get better at and work on every day at practice when you step on the field.”

Pryor on Deck: Rookie safety Calvin Pryor, who has been cleared for team activities, flashed at practice Saturday while working with the 2s. Despite missing all those valuable reps after suffering a concussion, Pryor consistently appears to be in sound positon and nearly intercepted a Mike Vick pass today.

“Calvin dropped the interception. He had a great break,” said Ryan. “He ran a high trap and he played it perfect. You just have to catch the football, but I was impressed with him. He did a nice job thudding on the run. He’s itching to go. There’s no doubt.”

“He’s such a good player. He’s not your average rookie,” added WLB Demario Davis. “He has superstar qualities. He just has a real knack for the ball. He has great instincts when it comes to playing football."

Dex with the 1s: With Dimitri Patterson banged up, rookie Dexter McDougle had an opportunity to take first team reps on the outside with the defense. The Maryland product had an uneven session as David Nelson got by the rookie for a long reception from Geno Smith.

“Dexter did a couple of good things out there and then he got beat on the deep one,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “We have to get better at that — we almost have to take it that it’s not acceptable to get beat deep.”

“It’s a little faster,” McDougle said. “The big thing for me is knowing what you’re supposed to do out there. If you know what you’re supposed to do — which is a lot — you can play fast. Coming in as a rookie, it can be hard but I think I’m progressing pretty well.”

Greatness Room: Interesting dorm pairing with WLB Demario Davis and hybrid defender Quinton Coples. Both young players could be poised for breakout campaigns.

“The biggest thing we try to do this camp is hold each other accountable,” Davis said. “We call our room the greatness room. We tell a lot of people, ‘Don’t come in here if you aren’t trying to be great,’ and some people make a U-turn. We try to challenge each other whether it’s getting up early, going to workouts, whether it’s making sure we’re getting extra film, whether it’s making sure we’re keeping an eye on our weight.”

Injury Front: OLB Antwan Barnes, who had offseason knee surgery, remains on the PUP list and continues to work with the strength & conditioning staff. Corners Dimitri Patterson (leg) & CB Jeremey Reeves (pain), reserve tackles Brent Qvale (concussion protocol) & Markus Zusevics (knee) and WRs Shaq Evans & Greg Salas (hip) did not practice. The Jets were a bit thin at receiver today because Eric Decker (quad) did not participate in team drills. Running back Chris Ivory, who injured his ribs against the Colts, was held out and LB Tim Fugger (knee) did not finish Saturday’s workout.
