Rex Ryan says great practice is a great sign

The New York Jets have slipped behind in the wild card playoff race and sit at 5-7. That includes coming of f a big 23-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, but don’t worry, the Jets have already bounced back with a great practice.

“As far as we’re concerned, [it was] probably our best day of practice we’ve had offensively. Not that it’s a good sign, it’s a great sign for us. Guys came out full of energy, bouncing around. Obviously, we need that. It’s just hard to explain but it was out there today,” Ryan said, via Pro Football Talk.

Rookie quarterback Geno Smith thinks it was a great practice as well.

“I think we had a good practice today,” Smith said. “I liked the way that we executed. I liked the tempo. I can tell guys definitely want to turn things around and we understand that we haven’t played well as of late, so we’re doing everything in our power to get that changed. I think that was a result of us having a good practice today. Now it’s about just building consistency and turning one day into two.”

That has to inspire confidence in the Jets fan base.
