Getty The 2022 New York Jets Green & White Scrimmage will be played under the bright lights at MetLife Stadium.

Tonight’s the night on August 6 as the annual New York Jets Green & White scrimmage kicks off at 7 p.m. EST (gates open at 6 p.m. EST). This game-simulated practice is the unofficial start of the 2022 preseason for Gang Green, and many fans will be in attendance under the bright lights of MetLife Stadium.

In addition, the Jets have decided to begin a new potential tradition this summer with Green & White Day, an “online celebration of Jets fans” that is set to start at 12 p.m. EST on NYJ Twitter.

Per the press release: “Jets fans have the chance to win unique prizes each hour by following and interacting with @nyjets Twitter. The inaugural Green & White Day Sweepstakes will offer fans the chance to win amazing prizes such as JetBlue vouchers, signed memorabilia and much more. For official rules and details, visit nyjets.com/greenandwhite. Terms and conditions apply.*”

It continued: “Starting today, Jets fans may also enter for a chance to win the 2022 Jets Fly Away Experience where one fan and a guest will win game tickets and travel to a Jets away game during the 2022 season. For official rules and details, visit nyjets.com/greenandwhite. Terms and conditions apply.**”

How to Watch & What to Expect

Unfortunately, this practice has not been available via stream under the Joe Douglas and Robert Saleh-led regime. SNY’s Connor Hughes explained on Twitter that this is generally the case due to “strategy reasons.”

Don’t expect that to change in 2022. Having said that, there are two ways that fans can get a taste of the action.

One is obvious, you can try and attend in person. Tickets are free — if you’re able to still get your hands on them.

The other takes a little more savvy and patience. Media members generally provide play-by-play action on #Jets Twitter. Some good people to follow in this regard are Hughes, Zack Rosenblatt, Dennis Waszak Jr., and Rich Cimini among others.

????Green & White scrimmage tonight (7 o’clock) at @MetLifeStadium. Routine practice periods, plus offense vs defense in unscripted possessions (1s vs 1s, etc). Each unit gets four series + two minute. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 6, 2022

If you follow along on the #Jets hashtag, you might also find live videos from fans that are at the practice. This is probably the best way to view the scrimmage, without actually being there at MetLife Stadium. Last year, most of the exciting plays were shared by NYJ faithful on Twitter.

In terms of what to expect, Coach Saleh did speak on how he runs the scrimmage on August 5:

“It’s always competitive. Even though it’s more ‘move the ball,’ the play count’s going to be the same and on schedule with what we have planned. So today (Aug. 5) was in the 48-play range, the Green & White will be in the 60-play range. But instead of having third-down and all the different [practice] periods we have, [it’s] going to be more ‘move the ball.'”

By “move the ball” periods, Saleh is referring to more full-team scripted and unscripted drives in which the offense attempts to travel the length of the field to force a scoring opportunity.

One last note. According to the Jets website, fans in attendance “will have access to tailgating, Jets Fest, and a live performance from the local band ‘Royals’ at the MetLife Stage. Chuck Lott and DJ Jon Blak will provide in-game entertainment, along with other exciting and interactive experiences. After practice, there will be a firework show and full-stadium laser display.”

Top Camp Storylines

There are some obvious storylines heading into tonight, and some not-so-obvious ones. Let’s dive in.

Zach Wilson & First-Team Offense

This includes the Jets’ offensive line, which has struggled in pass protection so far at training camp. Some practice periods work in favor of pass rushers, like third-and-long drills, but this scrimmage will be as close to live action as possible for an intrasquad event. Wilson and this offense must move the ball, for lack of a better phrase, which has been tough sledding against Carl Lawson and this ferocious defensive line full of disruptors. More specifically, offensive tackles Mekhi Becton and George Fant will be under the microscope as they continue to regain their form after offseason knee surgeries.

2022 Rookie Class

This draft class is star-studded, both on and off the field. First-year cornerback Sauce Gardner leads the way in both intrigue and talent, but running back Breece Hall, defensive end Jermaine Johnson II, and wide receiver Garrett Wilson have all been improving steadily in recent weeks. Tight end Jeremy Ruckert has returned to practice after his offseason foot injury, but it’s unclear how much he’ll play on Saturday night.

WR Battle Behind Core 4

We all know the four wide receiver locks at this point but the ongoing battle for the No. five and six roles — if they do elect to keep six — have been intense. Staff favorite Jeff Smith appears to lead all challengers in the early stages but youngsters and specialists like Irvin Charles, Calvin Jackson Jr., Rashard Davis, Keshunn Abram and Tarik Black have all had their moments. The key name to watch is Denzel Mims. The former second-round selection has been working with Mike White and the third-team for most of camp. He’s been streaky with dominant performances followed by ice-cold ones, and he’ll need to show more consistency if he wants to up his snap count this season.

I'm curious, which #Jets WR would you like to see make the 53 out of…?

— Mike Obermuller (@obermuller_nyj) August 6, 2022

D-Line War of Attrition

This defensive line competition has lived up to the hype so far and the casualty has been the Jets’ O-line and quarterback group most practices. At both defensive end and D-tackle, there are major camp battles ensuing every single day and so many players are stepping up to the challenge. I’ve taken the liberty of tallying up the sack totals since pads have gone on, but even players not on this list like Bryce Huff, Jacob Martin and Solomon Thomas have made headlines for stellar performances in practice.

per Zack Rosenblatt, Ward had his second sack today too. #Jets https://t.co/UJ54ra7iTE

— Mike Obermuller (@obermuller_nyj) August 5, 2022

Interesting Newcomers to Watch

Finally, there are a few newcomers — both veterans and youngsters — to keep an eye on. Linebacker Kwon Alexander has been impressive since entering the fold and appears to be unseating Quincy Williams for the second LB role next to C.J. Mosley. Undrafted RB prospect Zonovan “Bam” Knight has also shown up at camp, fitting the build of the perfect west coast runner for this system. One final name is TE Tyler Conklin, who has emerged as Wilson’s favorite target throughout the early stages of the offseason.

Injury Update

Running back Ty Johnson is expected to miss the Green & White Scrimmage, while veteran DE Vinny Curry is still questionable with a hamstring issue. Ruckert, Fant, RB Tevin Coleman, and kicker Greg Zuerlein are all expected to play.

Twitter Split on Alabamas College Football Playoff Qualifications

Getty Twitter had some on both signs of the fence regarding Alabama's College Football Playoff qualifications

Following TCU’s 31-28 overtime loss to Kansas State during the Big 12 Championship on December 3, college football fans all over Twitter were split on whether or not Alabama — owner of two losses but sitting in the No. 6 spot before No. 3 TCU and No. 4 USC’s championship weekend losses — deserve to make the College Football Playoff.

There has never been a two-loss team to make the CFP, making the prospect of the Crimson Tide making this year’s field a historic first. Their two losses were by a combined four points and were to teams ranked inside the top 15 on the road in Tennessee and LSU. TCU, on the other hand, lost by three points on a neutral site.

While the College Football Playoff committee has many factors to weigh, one thing has been made certain to social media’s reaction to the USC and TCU losses: there will be an outraged group of fans either way the decision goes.

Many Analysts Believe Alabama Belongs in College Football Playoff

Many analysts who admittedly earn money based on viewership are hoping that the ratings juggernaut Alabama Crimson Tide make the College Football Playoff. Among them were those from ESPN and Fox Sports are in that group:

I am no expert but no one can convince me that @AlabamaFTBL isn’t better than these teams I have been watching despite 2 heartbreaking L’s .If rule is BEST 4 for playoffs BAMA should be in .Hey they didn’t get beat at home by 3 TD’s REWARD THE BEST / just watch @SEC football .

College Football Playoff Committee be like Spike Lee and “Do The Right Thing”. Alabama belongs in the College Playoff after 3 and 4 lost. Your eyes tell you Bama are 1 of the 4 best tms. 4get the won loss record. #ALABAMAINVITATIONAL.

Alabama is objectively better than USC and Ohio State. Sorry.

— Marc Torrence (@marctorrence) December 3, 2022

Ohio State lost by 22 to Michigan.

Alabama lost two games by a combined 4 points.

They’re gonna put Bama at 4 folks

— Trevor Woods (@WoodsFootball) December 3, 2022

The justification for Alabama to make it in over TCU and Ohio State would be the Crimson Tide’s overall strength of schedule, which did just suffer from LSU’s 50-30 SEC Championship loss to Georgia.

The Argument Against Alabama Making the College Football Playoff

Of course, with Alabama making all but one College Football Playoff so far (2019), there is a natural pushback to them getting into the final four this season — especially with Power Five teams with fewer losses right near the top with them. Several notable media figures pushed back on the Crimson Tide being CFP-bound:

For the record: @AlabamaFTBL has no case to be included in the CFP…The committee has already told us, correctly, that @OhioStateFB is higher and there is no way Bama wins an argument over a 12 win @TCUFootball who also beat Texas in Austin.

If you think Alabama deserves a playoff spot over TCU, you either don’t watch College Football, or you’re bias. It’s that simple. @TCUFootball pic.twitter.com/XsonitxLr7

Today’s #CFBPlayoff discussions over “what if’s” has been CFB at its best. It’s not hard. Nor should it be.

Ohio St didn’t play. They get 4th.

TCU lost a champ game in OT. They’re 3rd.

Michigan is in. Plays TCU. So 2nd or 3rd doesn’t matter.

UGA. 1st.

Alabama. Stop.

— Matt Barrie (@MattBarrie) December 4, 2022

Alabama came in fourth in the SEC this year. They have no business in any playoff discussion. If TCU loses to Kansas State, I still think they are in the playoff. But if you are taking an SEC team with two losses to replace them it has to be Tennessee.

The question shouldn’t be “should Alabama or Ohio State get in the College Football Playoff?” It should be “should Tennessee or Ohio State get in the College Football Playoff?”

(It’s Ohio State either way)

Sunday morning at 11 a.m. central will be when social media is set to detonate regarding the College Football Playoff when the committee’s picks are announced on ESPN.
