Former seven-time NFC pro bowler Lomas Brown is at camp working with D’Brickashaw Ferguson.

Via reporter Jeff Weinstein from the New York Jets website:

“He’s a good person to really learn from, given the fact that he was a similar position,” said Ferguson. “You even watch him on tape, how fluid he is and the types of technique he uses, it’s great as a young player. You can look at that and say, ‘Hey, this is a guy who’s done it. Let me try to pattern myself after him.”

An interesting quote from Eric Mangini on the New York Jets website on the importance of keeping Pete Kendall happy:

“I think there’s a lot of good players in the locker room. There’s a lot of good leaders. Mike [Tannenbaum] and I focus on doing what’s best for the New York Jets, and that’s what we’re always focused on. Each situation is unique.”

This possibly in response to a quote by Kendall in an article by Mark Canizzaro of the New York Post:

“I won’t be here,’’ Kendall said. “It’s just a matter of when. I don’t think this is going to go on much longer. I feel in my heart that I’m going to get moved on. I believe that decision has already been made.’’

I guess $14k is a lot of money for Pete to be in camp and so unhappy.

Trivia:

What teams do these backup QB’s play for: Casey Printers, Damon Huard, Brodie Croyle, and Jeff Terrell?

Answer: The Kansas City Chiefs ~ all four of them. One will start on opening day versus the Texans. Good luck Herm Edwards.

During the morning session the entire offense had to run a lap around the training complex following several mental errors. Obviously it worked as the offense then turned things around and was especially sharp at the goal line ~ scoring TD’s on three consecutive plays against the #1 defense.

CB Andre Dyson is sidelined with an injury but continues to condition on the sideline.

Via Jeff Weinstein’s report on the New York Jets website, coach Eric Mangini had this to say about Bill Walsh:

“I would like to take a second to send out my condolences and the organization’s condolences to Bill Walsh’s family,” said Jets head coach Eric Mangini. “He was an amazing coach and an amazing person who really changed the game. His innovations, his coaching tree, all of the things that he has added will be missed both personally and professionally.”

Via the Jets website, Coach Mangini’s thoughts on Darrelle Revis:

“Every practice is important. Every practice we are either installing information or going over previously installed information and making corrections on that information. There is all the “situational awareness” things that we are doing. Each repetition you miss is an opportunity for someone else to get that rep and for them to show what they can do and how they can help the team win. It’s really a great opportunity for those other guys.”

Two things to look to be ironed out by week’s end ~ Pete Kendall’s status for this season and Darrelle Revis getting signed. I would hope and anticipate both to be cleared up by the weekend.
