    32 fumbles for Geno in college... Sanchez has big hands and fumbled 42 times as a Jet.

    The other part of Sanchez games that is frustrating is the INT's... He had 18 int's last year to go along with 14 fumbles...

    Then you take his poor sub 60% completion percentage...

    And then factor in that he doesn't throw for a lot of yards or Tds....

    Well you get the point - Sanchez is a limited player without a huge upside.

    Geno might not pan out either, but he's got a much, much better chance.

    Since that time, I've seen him interviewed on TV, watched the Gruden camp video, read up on him beyond that one scouting report, watched videos of how he played and handled the press during college, and he has done nothing but impress me. He seems like a composed, mature, focused individual who really has a hunger to be a great quarterback. So what if he was tying himself up into knots when he went undrafted in the first round -- that just showed me how much he really wants it.

    Now I'm looking forward to seeing what we have here as a quarterback.
    seems like the worst part of the whole thing were his former agents.

    Sanchez is obviously a problem, but he's not going to be the biggest problem in the world if he's on the bench. We're pretty much tied to him right now and I doubt his jersey number becomes available before 2014.
    Out the door =A TEN

    Inactive or tied to the bench= A NINE

    On the field pissing away games and another season= A DISASTER

    Look, if he's on the bench then he doesn't have an opportunity to buttfumble. As long as we don't have to watch him set the position back 50 years, I'm ok with him being on the roster for now.

    And that's after management strongly impressing on Mark to protect the ball.
    basically saying we get it, the O is not where it should be but PEASE protect the ball.


    It's mind boggling.

    Good. I hope he pulls a Drew Brees after Phillip Rivers was drafted. I hope he starts, plays great, continues to play great, and Geno can't even get on the field.

    I just want to see good QB play for the Jets.

    I based my enthusiasm from watching him play in college...I watch as much college as pro football....there is NO WAY I make judgement of a player unless I saw enough of him. Nothing beats seeing the player play....people were upset and going ballistic and had never seen him even play in college...sorry but that makes zero sense to me. That's why I laugh at so many resident experts on this board who does not even watch college ball. LOL

    I disagreee with you given Sanchez' propensity to sulk on the sidelines. With a kid QB on the team, we do not need that type of behavior. If Sanchez loses out, I think it best to cut him rather then have him contaminate the kid QB. Besides I think Garrard will be our starter. I think Geno & McElroy will be the low cost backups until Geno is ready to play.

    agreed. The guy has had time to develop and hasn't. He caused us embarassment last year and should be off the team but for a stupid contract blunder. If Tanny did not screw up Sanchez would be in the Arena League as a backup.

    +100

    KJ nails it as usual. The machine has zero chance of winning a fair competition and keeping him around takes away important reps needed by Garrard, the 2013 starter and Smith, the eventual starter and hopefully, the franchise guy.

    Outta here in June for T#6

    They root against him because they fear that he'll get the starting job again, and that the Jets will suck again, just as they did last year.

    With Smith or any other QB, at least you have HOPE. They MIGHT be as bad as Sanchez, but there's a higher probability that they will be better than him. In Geno's case, if he's bad out of the gate, well, he's a rookie. You still have hope that he'll develop and improve. This is why young QBs have a longer leash as the starter than older QBs.

    you have to wonder if they would have brought in Garrard if they 'knew' they'd get geno. obviously they couldn't know that. but if the idea was to generate qb competition, they really don't need Garrard anymore. they clearly didn't want geno in the first half of the first round and couldn't have anticipated he'd fall.

    The difference between Geno and Sanchez is that Geno has balls ( and a chip on his shoulder) whereas Sanchez is a pu$$y.

    It's as simple as that!!

    Thats a very valid point. Based on where Geno was drafted, I think you are correct.

    The NFL ain't easy. I'd rather see Garrard win the start with Geno as his backup. Garrard likely doesn't play 16 games and Geno will have time to grow into to the position by then.

    What is really going to change in 3-5 games though? People are acting like Geno is sitting behind Manning or Favre, what exactly is he going to lean on the bench that he wouldnt learn by playing? Players learn by playing not sitting. Unless Geno really struggles in pre season, he should start from day one. Starting Garrard does nothing to help the development of Geno.
