    Now I mentioned this yesterday and I was dogpiled.

    And I was accused of being biased for Clemens to win the job. Well, here it is again from the JI home page right now, as we speak:

    [QUOTE][B]In the battle between Mark Sanchez and Kellen Clemens for the starting Quarterback job, the edge at this point must be given to the incumbent, who has shown flashes of being able to totally command the offense.[/B] This fact is no surprise, being that Clemens has worked within the system since his rookie season. Clemens’ downfall during camp has been his inability to sustain momentum, scuttling otherwise impressive sessions with a propensity to turn the ball over. The theme returned again today, but to pin the setback entirely on Clemens would be harsh. Clemens was operating the offense perfectly, dashing it down field during the 11 on 11 drill. He had driven inside the ten, before one of his passes was batted at the line by Bart Scott, into the hands of Darrele Revis. Drive over.

    “How bout that,” said Clemens about the pick. “Talk about bad luck. As far as myself, really, in this offense you have your starting point and we have just continued to progress and get a little bit better each day. That’s all you can look for. Obviously, the last drive for us, offensively, I think we showed our potential and what we’re able to do against this defense.”

    [B]If Clemens can curtail his lapses and avoid bad breaks, [U]he may easily win the job[/U].[/B][/QUOTE]

    Come one, come all and give your opinions on the QB competition thus far.

    You obviously haven't been reading Twitter.

    My impression has been that Clemens is winning also, but if the rookie deserves to win it and does then thats a little awesome.

    And yes, this is also considering his training camp INTs.

    I truly believe it's in the Jets' best interest for Kellen to win the job easily and perform well. We all know Sanchez is the future, but I really don't want to see him starting unless Clemens is stinking up the joint. For this season, a successful Clemens gives the Jets a better chance at success than a learning Sanchez.

    It proves that there is a pretty stark contrast of opinions on this competition [B]jerkoff.[/B]

    I find the blind hate for Clemens from a few on here to be as tired and boring as some find my sarcasm shtick.

    It doesn't even make sense...and while I realize things don't always have to make sense it's still pretty stupid.

    Ignore the power of Shiny New Toy Syndrome.

    SO the JI editors, some of whom are at training camp every day, don't know what's going on, that's essentially what you're saying.

    You're joking right??

    When did Twitter become the end all be all of training camp reports anyway??

    This time last year, twitter didn't even exist.

    Give it a rest. Holy **** all this inconclusive, inconsequential quarterback talk is just getting ridiculous. I'd hope Clemens is winning the job and can grasp the offense better than the rookie. Unfortunately, flashes is what we should be getting from Sanchez not Clemens who should be more consistent. I hope that after the first preseason game Clemens will finally start gelling but as it stands a four year veteran who's been in this system since it was implemented should not be getting looked at and evaluated the same way a rookie is evaluated. Flashes are for someone who hasn't had the opportunities and experience he has had.

    But alas in the end my best case scenario works out as Clemens winning the job based on talent not the rookie cliche. And if he pans out then we can trade him for picks next year which should good times had by all Jets fans.

    Well stated and I agree with you 100%.

    I think Clemens is ahead of Sanchez now in camp but we can't judge these guys until preseason is over pretty much. AND Sanchez has hardly gotten any snaps with the first team.

    So lets see how it goes when they switch and how they do in a live game.

    Oh and twitter has been around since 2006.

    Someone's always being a dick to everyone else here...maybe the victims here can start a thread where they can exchange tales of poster on poster cruelty and meanypooness.

    Maybe JI can take a visit to Oprah or Dr. Phil?

    Or maybe the gd season could start...

    Well than your memory is about as good as your mind reading.

    As usual, you're way off base.

    I conceded yesterday that I want the best player to start regradless of who it is.

    If Sanchez proves himself to be the better QB, then by all means start him and I will be behind him 100%.

    My point was yesterday, I said that all reports that I had read said Clemens was winning the battle and Sanchez was struggling and I cited the article that was on the JI hompage yesterday morning. Then I had like 8 or 10 guys telling me the exact opposite was true. Then I get on the home page again tonight and the same thing again with the JI editors saying Clemens is winning the battle.

    My point is that there seems to be a pretty wide contrast of opinions as to who is really winning this battle.

    I just want the best QB to start regardless of who it is.

    I get the feeling I'm one of those people that hates Sanchez.
