Thread: Cut Sanchez: Yes or No?

  1. #1

    Cut Sanchez: Yes or No?

    Do you want the Jets to cut Sanchez before the start of the 2013 season?

  2. #2
    I voted no, simply because Garrard is fragile and Geno is a rookie. We don't want to force Geno to start if something happens to Garrard. And there really isn't much cap savings to cut him.

    If Geno starts off hot and looks like the real deal in camp, I would be ok with cutting sanchez.

    I'd rather have McElroy on the roster.

    I said yes. I heard the Jets will have an additional total loss of 250K if they cut him vs. keeping him. So let him go and focus on the guys you have and perhaps the circus will be outta here once and for all.

    Cut...no. Trade...please try.

    Garrard, Sanchez and Geno are a good way to approach the season. Sanchez's trade value is almost zero right now. It can really only go up as we approach the season and maybe some other team loses a starting QB to injury.

    The writing is on the wall. One way or another he is likely gone soon and Geno Smith will get his opportunity. Let's take comfort in the change that's coming but hold onto Sanchez for now.

    Who knows, maybe he has a Week 1 like he did last year and we can trade him for a 3rd rounder?

    Yes - if the only reason for keeping him is his guaranteed salary, then there is no reason for keeping him.

    No good can come from keeping him around. He's done - bite the bullet and make the cut.

    McElroy will beat out Suckchez if the competition is fair!

    Is McElroy still early enough in his career that we can put him on the Practice Squad?

    To me, Tebow and Simms are surefire goners. I think the surefire keepers are Garrard and Geno Smith.

    The question is what to do with Sanchez and McElroy. As I stated above, I'd try to trade Mark but wouldn't release him at this point.

    I dont think the Jets cut Sanchez.

    New OC, legitimate QB competition, the Jets are on the hook for millions regardless - let Mark battle it out for the job.. Worst case? He continues to look lost and the Jets cut him in camp. Since they are paying him in 2013 anyway, I think they go the Alex Smith route and see if he can resurrect a career left for dead.

    I said no because we are not sure of garrards durability or how soon Geno will be ready...if the Jets keep sanchez for another season, it does not hurt them....not sure why everyone is so quick to cut sanchez....they were nto saying that in 2009-10 Training camp and pre season is the real teller...chances are the qb's will be garrard sanchez and smith come september.

    Dump him NOW. He is permantley damaged in this town and will never prosper here again. Sanchez leaving rids the Jets of the circus-like atmosphere that the NY media is just drooling over to cover.

    Do not cut him.

    No huge benefit to dump him now other than some perceived Qb controversy problem. The pluses are that he might show something and we can get an asset for him next year and that fact that Geno Smith needs some grooming and Garrard is injury prone.

    wow ! What tremendous insight you have offered us. Please list your credentials and experience to have allowed you to quickly make such a great and thorough opinion about McElroy. I think we have found our next GM.

    I voted no simply because I want to see the 2013 season with the Jets NOT winning a game. Chances are much better if Sanchez plays.

    we all know that smith is the future but this talk as if sanchez is the worst qb in history is idiotic....he sure as heck is not the jets future but I look closely at what he has had the past 2 seasons....NOTHING.......if he stays and plays decent then it's possible trade bait....to cut him now without seeing him play with a real RB in Ivory and a much better o line in senseless.

    Bingo.

    Sanchez isn't good, but he did win 6 games with zero talent around him. Garrard and Geno Smith have question marks as you stated. There are risks with those two guys.....at least we know what we have in Sanchez. He's not good, but he's not a trainwreck.....well, maybe sometimes.

    You don't dump him because the media thinks you should. You don't dump him because there's a perceived QB controversy. You do what's best for your football team and right now that is keeping him. Let Training Camp unfold and watch the competition take place.
