New training complex helping with preparation

The Jets new training facility has really helped the team's preparation process. The place is state-of-the-art.

"It's designed so well in the ability to go in and out of meetings to walk­threws," said Eric Mangini. "The three different grass fields, as opposed to the field-and-a-half that we had at Hofstra. The four outdoor fields, the indoor facility and the size of that, the ability to punt, kick, do any of those things in there without hitting the roof, that's always a huge plus."

Mangini feels the learning process is aided by the tools at the team's disposal in Florham Park.

"It's very education-friendly, and you spend so much time trying to learn tendencies, the opponent," said Mangini. "They have these giant boards in the room and you can draw anywhere. The video system is set up where you can watch the video and telestrate on the video. You can put documents up that will show, you don't have to make the transparencies. Whatever you want to do, you can pretty much do it."

Hey, any advantage you can get in this ultra-competitive league is good to have.
