    Smith or Sanchez via Bleacher Report

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...s-otas/page/23

    I think this guy puts it short and sweet. I agree!

    "Mark Sanchez is one of the worst quarterbacks in the league. Geno Smith is a rookie with a ton of potential.

    Give the kid the starting job and let's move on."

    Happens to be a very good opinion piece reliability is not a fair critique.

    The only people who think Sanchez has any chance of beating out Smith are a few fools on this site.

    The answers will come in training camp, it's as simple as that. The Jets, the oc , the head coach, the gm have not made up their mind on who the opening day starter will be this season. And that is exactly the way it should be this year.

    it's really not that difficult.

    if Geno is ready to play, he will most likely beat out Sanchez in TC. if not, let Sanchez take his lumps for another season while Smith is groomed for the future.

    2013 is a "lost season" for most people. lets not screw things any further by forcing Geno into action if he's not ready.

    IMO this season is about two things:

    1) is geno smith worth building around, or do they need to draft another qb early next year?

    2) is rex worth keeping or do they need to get a new coach?

    I prefer "lame duck" season, but two peas in the same pod.

    Disagree with forcing Geno, and lets not mess things up any further by pressuring him.

    Throw him in there(if he is indeed the TC winner), and dont coddle him. If Geno is not ready, I for one dont want to wait to try to develop him in 2 or 3 years...or more. If Geno is not ready, draft another QB next season, and again, best player starts. Its low risk, and i think the best way to develop is gametime on sundays.

    Sanchez definitely has to go, but I wouldn't be so fast to throw Smith to the wolves, considering that this offense provides him with few weapons. You want him to have a fighting chance to succeed, but with this corps of receivers and a questionable running game, I would hold off until I surrounded him with the proper talent.

    agreed only Sanchez should be expected to make something out of ****.

    I second this opinion

    I would like both to work out but... I'm a Jets fan so let the chips fall as they must

    If Sanchez is "one of the worst QBs in the league".... With whom is he actually neck and neck?

    Gabbert and Cassell. Since neither of those guys are probable starters in '13, Sanchez will have the title all to himself if he starts and plays like he did last year.

    What we need is to have the third option put back in place. Once that is done, best QB starts and play, the next guy on the list backs up and the third guy (I hope Mark) holds the clip board plays the scout team QB and gets laid a lot.
    We need a solid veteran to replace Gerrard and hopefully one who knows MM system already and has started elsewhere.
    Then let the competition begin, if Mark beats out both the Vet and the rookie then he deserves to start. No more free passes and no more throwing young kids to to the wolves. Everything must be earned with equal terms for everyone.

    Let's see your list of available "solid vet" QBs that fit your description and are possible upgrades.

    Focus on reality, not imaginary hypotheticals.

    With regard to one statistic. Which they happened to make up. Talk about cherry picking.
