    i say this because it doesnt mean ****. jets are smitten with him because he can throw the ball in practice against nobodies? what a bunch of idiots these writers are. claiming that he's securing the starting job with his rookie mini camp performance where he threw a couple of balls. i swear to god we have the dumbest writers in the entire league

    either somebody is the greatest thing ever or the worst thing the nfl has ever seen. let these guys play, we'll see after the preseason who can play and win games. these practices (especially rookie mini camp where theres no contact or anything that even comes close to guys competing) dont mean ****. i can throw the ball well in practice just standing there. mcelroy can, sanchez sure as hell can. these reporters are absolutely retarded. but hey they have to make some money. nobody would read boring **** so they have to come up with stuff that gets people excited and look what happened. boom this thread is blowing up. because of a ****ty rookie mini camp practice report. hell, its not even a report. just some fatso pulling crap out of his ass

    The recent exceptions notwithstanding, it takes time to master the pro NFL game.
    +1 Let's not ruin Geno like Sanchez was ruined.

    They didnt fail because they played from day one, they failed because they were bad QBs.

    sanchez stepped into a situation most rookie qbs could only dream about. top offensive line. very good running game. veteran leaders on both sides of the ball. strong defense. not expected to throw for 300+ yards to win games. expected to be game manager at first and grow into franchise qb over time. this formula got them to two championship games. the problem is that sanchez never grew. as soon as pieces started being removed from the offense, we saw how bad he really was. there's not one facet of sanchez's game that's close to average. completion %, tds, ints, fumbles, you name it. sanchez was the lowest ranked qb based on espn's new qb metric, over the past two years. sure it's formulaic, but he was dead last. at what point do you simply concede that most of the failure is on the player and not the OC, or the wrs, or the blocking, etc.

    daballhawk is a HUGE Omaha Beef fan at this moment

    and THIS

    I think Teblow has a good chance of winning the backup quarterback job in Nebraska Indoor Football, roughly his skill level...but, since they don't punt in the indoor game, the role he was meant for -- backup punt protector - isn't available.

    come on. sanchez just plain sucks. there's not enough pink jerseys and no contact rules to make him feel comfortable as a QB. he could be a hall of fame flag football QB

    but yeah, let geno do his thing. if he plays well in the preseason let him start. if not he'll get a shot next year. no need to hype him up for no reason except to sell papers

    So do Peyton Manning, Matt Ryan, Russell Wilson, Joe Flacco, Andy Dalton and Cam Newton and many more. It's all about talent. Whoever looks to be the best and most complete QB at camp will win the job, period. And that's as it should be. Let's not pretend that starting out of the gate is a death sentence. It's worked before and it can work again. The only caveat (as most have said) is that GS can't be the preordained starter. If he starts out of the gate, fine...but he's going to have to earn it.

    Correct, there is either a QB competition or there isnt. People seem to be contradicting themselves around here. Everyone wanted a QB competition, but if the rookie wins it he should sit because rookies somehow need to sit in their first year?? It doesnt make any sense.

    He can't earn it. Beating out Mark Sanchez or Gerrard means virtually nothing about his ability to be an NFL starting QB.

    The fact is a QB is going to be ordained by the coaching staff and it's not likely to be based on objective criteria.
