Practice this week was focused on three particular parts of the Jets offense, QB Geno Smith, TE Jeff Cumberland and WR Jeremy Kerley. Smith, well because, he is an effective quarterback, Cumberland because of the injury to WR Eric Decker and Kerley because he leads in balls thrown to him (24) and receptions (15 for 141 yards)
“I’m definitely a lot more comfortable with Jeremy than I was last year, because we had an off-season together, we’ve had a bunch of time to bond for me to really get to know him and vice versa,” Smith said. “We’re still building, we’re still building on our chemistry, we’re still getting better, but as of right now, it’s definitely been a positive sign that he’s been getting the ball and really sparking our offense.

According the Ndamukong Suh’s personal trainer Mike Barwis, when Suh hits the field for training camp, he will be a “physical specimen.”
“Ndamukong is a stud,” said Barwis, “… He trains very, very hard. Guys finish up the workouts, and he’s the guy in there who stays extra to condition beyond what’s demanded of him, and these workouts are pretty hellacious. A guy like that is a pretty unique guy. … He knows what he has to do to be ready, and I think he’s proven that every year he’s been ready.”

As the Detroit Lions prepare to host the New York Giants, running back Reggie Bush is speaking out about the team’s lack of focus and discipline as it applies to every day game activities.
“It could be from penalties or it could be from turnovers or it could be from how we finished the games in fourth quarters,” the running back said. “It’s not one specific play or moment in a game. It’s the total game. It’s how we play.”
Bush says this after the team has lost control of its playoff destiny by losing four out of the last five games.
“It’s not a coaches’ thing. It’s a players’ thing. We can do a better job all across the board,” Bush said. “As far as an offense standpoint, turn the ball over and that’s the discipline issue, and that’s something we have to correct, because obviously, as you see, it’ll lose you games.”
Let’s see if Bush’s words have lit a fire under his teammates this weekend. Great tickets and seats are still available!

The Detroit lions played a great game against the Bengals but came up on the short end of a 27-24 loss. The setback puts the Lions at 4-3.
Next up for Detroit are the Dallas Cowboys and the key matchup in that contest will be rookie center Travis Frederick against defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
One player Lions Coach Jim Schwartz will be keeping his eyes on is Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant.
“And I think that Dez Bryant in particular has really improved over the course of his career. We saw him as a really young player a few years ago. He’s playing like a veteran player now. He’s taken the load of the No. 1 receiver. That’s a big burden to be the No. 1 receiver. You’re going to see attention every week. You’re going to see double teams. You’re going to see corners rolled to your side and it’s a big mental adjustment to go through that and I think that Dez Bryant has done that. He’s made big plays for them. He’s always been a really strong player, but you just see him maturing as a player and I think that’s good for the NFL when you see young players improve like he has.

Home win would push record to 5-2/Suh fined again
Coming off a win over the Cleveland Browns, the Detroit Lions are looking to get back to business as usual as they take on a talented Cincinnati Bengals team who won a thrilling 27-24 overtime game in Buffalo.
Meanwhile, DT Ndamukong Suh was fined by the NFL a whopping $31,500 for a two hard hits on Bengals QB Brandon Weeden.
“We’re going to aggressively enforce player safety fouls,” Blandino said. “When I looked at the play, I felt that he did make contact with the forehead-hairline. Lowered the head and made contact with the forehead-hairline. Not to the head or neck, but the rule does prohibit that contact to the body.”
