Geno also showed his highs -- a pretty strong arm and an ability to "make all the throws" -- and his lows -- a real difficulty with ball placement. The latter was somewhat muted Friday by some fantastic adjustments by the wide receivers, especially Stephen Hill, who slowed down along the sidelines and turned back inside to catch a ball that was thrown behind him and to the middle of the field. Geno could have, and should have led Hill along the sideline and allowed him to bring it in away from the defender, but Hill used his size and athleticism to turn poor placement into a nice catch. Poor ball placement isn't FREAKING OUT over yet, but it's definitely something to monitor and a bad habit that could get him (and his wideouts) in a lot of trouble once the Jets get into game action. The one thing I did like -- and I mentioned it above -- was Geno has a very nice arm. He didn't appear to struggle making any throws and slung a lot of what Brian termed "frozen ropes."
Like I said, a mixed bag, which wasn't entirely expected for the first day of training camp. Oh, and as for Mr. McElroy, let's just say the photo above was about as close as he got to the first team.
