The first two weeks of New York Jets training camp has offered serious insight as to what to expect from the Green and White in the 2014 NFL season.

A majority of the hype surrounding Jets camp remains concentrated on the so-called quarterback competition between incumbent Geno Smith and veteran newcomer Michael Vick.

While neither signal-caller dazzled in the preseason opener, both exhibited why they're competent enough to take the reins of Marty Mornhinweg's West Coast offense.

The Jets defense has been reportedly stout throughout team practice, according to Seth Walder of New York Daily News, but it appeared somewhat vulnerable against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night, allowing backup QB Matt Hasselbeck to lead an 80-yard touchdown drive in less than four minutes.

The Jets' ability to find the end zone in their preseason opener was encouraging, considering New York's glaring lack of ability to execute inside of opponents' 20-yard line in 2013. In 2012, New York didn't score a preseason touchdown until its final tuneup before the regular season.

The Jets' Vick-led TD drive unofficially upped the intensity of the QB battle. It also showcased why the Jets offense is much more dangerous with Chris Johnson in the backfield.

The Jets are a different team in 2014. They're more potent on offense and seemingly improved in the secondary on defense.

The following slideshow highlights five things we've learned through the first two weeks of Jets training camp.
