Round one to Carolina
Good morning, ☕
Remember when I said that the Jets would be a bigger test to Carolina than Carolina would be to the Jets? Well, that didn’t exactly go to plan on the first day.
We’ll get another crack today, and there is one unit that desperately needs a bounceback game and it will surprise absolutely nobody to hear that the unit in question is the offensive line.
We also saw the first signs of Aaron Rodgers getting frustrated, and that’s his competitive side coming out. It’s training camp, it’s only the first day of joint practice, but AR doesn’t do failure and that’s what happened.
Just wanted to say a thank you to all you guys who share TJW. We've picked up a fair few subscribers over the last week and I appreciate the support 👍
CAMP NOTES ✍️
Max Mitchell and Billy Turner had another tough day at the office. Rodgers was sacked multiple times and pressured on a number of throws. The majority of the pressure came on the outside and Brian Burns was the source of a lot of it.
That’s not to say that Rodgers wasn’t able to go to work. He hit Allen Lazard for two touchdowns and for most of the day, he was threading the needle.
Rodgers's frustration came from a 3-and-out situation at the end of practice. Two of the throws were incompletions due to pressure. Rodgers said the line needs to do better, and Connor McGovern said it was all on the line…you get the picture.
