    Smith will be starting game one and the rest of the season. Maybe we can send Sanchez in for a change of pace when an interception, fumble or three and out are called for

    LOL,,,I was thinking the same thing. Start Geno and bring in Sanchez when we're up by 2 TDs or so.

    You know what I was referring to. Geno's athleticism is akin to an Aaron Rodgers more than it is an RG3.

    If Sanchez starts this is the Jets idea of change of pace with Smith.

    Play 1 - Ivory up the middle four 4
    Play 2 - Sanchez throws four the 1st off quick 3 step drop
    Play 3 - Smith subbed in hand off to Ivory for 3
    Play 4 - Smith gets sacked in read option pistol set -6
    Play 5 - Sanchez subs back in and throws a pick trying to make a play on third and long

    It just hurts so good.

    What a stupid organization. If Geno is the future, nothing is going to hurt his confidence more than getting his first NFL taste in gimmicky packages where he runs a risky option play into a defense that is expecting trickery.

    Jets couldn't screw this up worse if they tried; it's probably not just bad luck we haven't had a franchise qb in 40 years.

    Report: Jets “toying” with using Geno Smith to change pace
    Posted by Josh Alper on July 15, 2013,

    When the Jets traded for Tim Tebow last year, many speculated that they would use him as a change-of-pace quarterback with his own package of offensive plays that the team would use to expand their options when they had the ball.

    Tebow only played sparingly on offense in 2012 and the Jets were roundly ridiculed for the way they deployed him. According to a report from Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, however, the team hasn’t totally given up the idea of having a backup quarterback with his own portfolio even though last year’s offensive coordinator Tony Sparano is now coaching the offensive line in Oakland.

    Per Cimini, Jets coaches are “toying” with the idea of using rookie Geno Smith as a change-of-pace quarterback if he doesn’t win the starting job with a package of plays centered on the read-option. The idea is to make use of Smith’s speed while also giving him game experience he wouldn’t get otherwise, although Cimini points out one potential stumbling block in Smith’s limited history of success on designed runs while in college.

    While the Jets offense can surely use any wrinkle that makes it more successful, the notion of shuttling quarterbacks in and out of the game only underlines how badly the Jets need to find a quarterback that they aren’t willing to take off the field for chunks of the game. The Jets presumably selected Smith in the second round of the draft because they felt he had the potential to be that kind of player and they’ll likely be best served by keeping him focused on attaining that goal as quickly as possible rather than returning to a well that bore no water last season.
    Here we go again! Another buil in excuse should Suckchez fail. We can blame it all on a lack of rhythm due to the changing of QBs. Its never sucky's fault!

    More Ryan idiocy. Only coach that still thinks the wildcat or read option packages are effective. I am sorry but Rex is a ****ty head coach because of nonsense like this.

    He is obviously having a really hard time giving up on his boy Mark and so he wants to trot Geno out there in the read option.

    Screw Rex, that is idiotic. First of all, Geno should be considered the Jets future. Second, he is not a read option QB. Third, you are tempting fate in getting Geno seriously hurt.

    The only glimmer of hope is that Sanchez performs like Sanchez and Rex is forced to start Geno. Otherwise Rex will continue to see Buttfumble as our best chance to win.

    Only good thing about starting Mark is that it guarantees this is Rex last season here, and we can get competent head coaching next year,

    Geno is NOTHING like Kapernick. Nothing. This is just Rex not wanting to give up on a veteran. It's what he is. He cannot let go of his guys.

    I get the sense their hoping for a Kaepernick type of situation. Unfortunately, Smith is NOT a running qb like Kap. Bad idea. You either start him fully or not at all.

    just noticed the other post that states something similar, sorry.

    I've come to expect this kind of offensive ignorance from Rex. But if MM - a guy who's been involved with the development of several top notch QBs - goes along with it, I'll be extremely disappointed.

    While I personally believe Sanchez will be the starter this year, if the team thinks Geno is good enough to get snaps here and there, Geno should get all the snaps. Sanchez is done here if he doesn't win the starting job convincingly, so if that doesn't happen and they want to work Geno in, what would be the point of playing Sanchez at all?

    Has anyone here considered that maybe the coaching staff was not overly impressed with what they saw of Geno Smith in OTAs thus far and is trying to keep expectations low in case this kid sucks worse than Sanchez (Yes it is possible he can be worse).

    Perhaps they are seeing why this kid, who was projected by many so called experts to be a Top 10 pick and first QB off the board, fall all the way down to the 2nd round.

    If that was the case I would suspect they would not be saying ANYTHING about any plans they have for him.

    All this whining, about something that hasn't even occurred, is just ridiculous. No TEAM SOURCES are cited. It's some b/s writer, writing a b/s article, citing Cimini, of all people. Talk about reactionary.

    "Change of pace", doesn't necessarily mean "read option", either. A package, for Geno, may just mean a series of plays that fit his skill set, as well as being easier for him to execute, early on..... until he's comfortable with the whole playbook. MM has a history of tailoring offenses to his personnel's skill set..... I choose to put my faith in that, rather than a speculative story, by a no name writer, citing a d-bag writer as his source.

    So you make him do something he has never done before???
    I agree we don't know who Geno Smith is as an NFL QB yet but in college he was not a read option QB. If he isn't ready let him hold the clip board, there is nothing wrong with letting him sit the bench to soak in the gamep. Do not try and make him something he is not you would think Rex would have learned that from trying to make Sanchez a game manager.

    the Cimini article this writer references came out weeks ago, and we already had this discussion on the board.

    I was initially against the idea until I realized that not only would it get Mark off the field, but it would slowly acclimate Geno into the offense (and NFL).
