A league source tells us that Jets backup center J.P. Machado is having a tough time filing the shoes of injured starter Kevin Mawae.
According to the source, Machado is hesitant in making blocking scheme calls when coming to the line during 11-on-11 drills. Chad Pennington, who is seeing plenty of time with the first-team offense in light of Vinny Testaverde's thumb injury, has been giving Machado grief for his reluctance to get fully involved in this key aspect of the center position.
Likewise, others on the offensive line are trying to give Machado advice, but he's basically blowing them all off.
