Although he was not scheduled to, after practice Fitzpatrick came out and signed autographs. He seemed like a very nice guy, chatted it up with the crowd.


Since I know you're all just waiting for a picture of Fitz's beard, here it is. It's even more glorious in person.

"“I feel great. You see me throwin’, right?” he told The Post, his speech slightly slurred by the swelling.

The Post notes that Smith was “strangely wearing eye-black tape during the casual toss.” Maybe the pain meds had something to do with that, but perhaps the word “strangely” could have been axed for the word “hilariously.”"

@KMart_LI: Q: Was it disappointing to see those pics of Geno?

Todd Bowles: "It's not disappointing. It's something u don't want (him) to do.'

Yeah, I'd rather he hand it off to the running back too.

Apparently they were some of his remaining bandages according to the Jets.  Not sure if I buy that...

It wasn't the real dark applicator that was used.  It looked like two strips of electrical tape.

@Bent @williamg1 Well, if black eye tape is believed to reduce brightness, I can't imagine it will have much affect on Geno....

Are we sure IK didn't clock this guy too?

This is not helpful.


Gives him just one more game to get ready unless he gets Bollinger Bowl reps which probably don't do much for him.


He is far from ready IMO and I hope Bowles has the huevos to take him out of the starting lineup if that remains the case.

Bowles: Calvin Pryor had a death in the family and will be out "quite a few days." Likely won't play on Friday.

@Bent 

Who will replace him? Best bet Miles...

Pryor could end up getting Wally Pipped

Jarrett played first team safety today.

Really? Darn...I keep hoping Miles will shine but maybe he just doesn't have it in him.

More likely to bring up a prospect from Triple-A than Single-A.

Well, if he can play like he did in that Steelers game every week, he'll be a Pro Bowler.

I knew I should have said when he isn't playing the steelers.

I really like what I have seen of Todd Bowles so far...unfortunately it will take a while for his impact to really be felt since so many guys were with Rex for a long time. It may mean getting rid of some guys we think should be staying but aren't really buying into what Todd is doing. I think in the long run, the effect will be very positive even if the short term ends in a step back.

Are there any players he's singled out for playing poorly?

@Bent 

If you believe Bowles knows more about playing CB then the media guys who report this stuff, Yes! You should feel better!

@a57se @Bent


Yeah, exactly.  That was my first reaction and then I was like "but what if he's just being overly positive like Rex would?"

Bent
Bent moderator

@juunit @Bent @a57se


I can't recall...


...and in the past Rex HAS done this to guys like Kerley and Coples (and it had a positive effect).

@Bent @a57se 

With Rex, you would be well justified to not believe a word he said!

Todd seems a little more straightforward but you still don't want to rip a guy in your press conferences.

He's probably right, third stringers don't make it.


He did get second team reps today, but had two penalties.

@Bent @juunit @nesboogie 

The part I find hard to believe is his staying as 3rd string throughout the preseason. 

As you said, he already jumped up to 2nd. He might be the last OL to make it at this point, but I don't really see how he doesn't make it.

@nesboogie 

I find it hard to believe he won't make the team. He's a solid backup capable of filling in at 3 positions.

Cro, Marshall, Enunwa, all injured within the last few minutes.

Bent

@nesboogie @Bent


Yeah and Vickerson earlier.


FWIW Cro and Enunwa went back in and Marshall isn't receiving treatment, but Brewer and Vickerson left the field.

Touchdown Tebow!
