If Sanchez starts against the Buc's there won't be ear plugs strong enough to drown out the booing at Metlife.. Had we started on the road with Sanchez(If he even wins the job) and he played well it would have been better but that's not the case..Plus if Revis plays and gets a pick it will be like the Coliseum in ancient Rome with Sanchez being fed to the lions.. I hope Geno or maybe a vet they bring in after the June cuts gets the start otherwise it will be brutal..
As much as I would like to see Smith win the QB competition during the pre-season, I think the best for the Jets in the log term would be for Sanchez to start the season and give way to Smith mid-year. If Mark can prove that he can at least be an adequate game manager, we might be able to get a mid round pick for him next year.
As it stands now, he has little to no value in trade.
I don't understand how anybody can say Sanchez. It is time to put the embers out. He is not our future. (OK maybe there is a 1 in a million chance )
Hoping for Sanchez to start the season just so Geno can learn is a second or third best case scenario. We should all want Geno to learn in OTAs and TC and win the competition and prove that he is a starting QB. That is the best case scenario. All scenarios involving Sanchez starting should be backup plans.
It's sink or swim, if Tannehill can get by year 1 with his weapons last year so can Geno.
Let him cut his teeth this year, then surround him with talent in next years draft and FA with the available cap space.
that's the thing. if geno can even survive and show glimpses this year, at least they have retooled the line to protect him. then next year they'll bring in more weapons and he'll be ready to roll. the jets aren't making the playoffs this year anyway, may as well see what he can do if he shows enough in camp. in today's nfl you don't see the penningtons riding pine for 3 years anymore, it's the exception rather than the rule.
Why would anyone want Sanchez to be the opening day starter?
He's done here, drafting Geno says they want someone else going forward. So the best case scenario is that Geno plays well and wins the starting job then continues to play well and we have our starting QB for the next 10 or so years.
Beats the hell out of having to draft another QB down the road.
