    If you actually believe Geno would get twice the number of reps if he was named the starter.

    That would make you wrong.

    WR - we knew the deal already, though the group receives a talent boost if Holmes is able to play sooner than later.

    Coples - this worries me too. Hated the decision when Rex made it, and unless Coples surprises I'll probably hate it throughout the season. He just doesn't look like a LB to me. Not saying he can't do it, but he doesn't strike me as a guy who will play well in space.
    I'm not sure why they would move Pace to DE and Couples to OLB? I have a feeling this is more of a hybrid thing where Couples will be on the line in the 4-3 looks and on the outside only situationally in the 3-4. Rex plays a ton oh hybrid looks and he will get guys in a position to succeed.

    Sanchez has clearly not distanced himself from Geno, in fact from all reports it sounds like Geno is comfortably ahead. If the 5th year player is being soundlly outplayed by the rookie why continue the competiton? Makes no sense to me. Especially since we know what Sanchez has been the last 2 years. Geno will only get better. Sanchez is kind of a finished product.

    I happen to agree with Heath about Coples not being a natural fit at OLB but the guy is a dunce. They should escort his lame ass out of Cortland. All he does is wave pom poms for the two scandal ridden organizations he was a part of.

    Difference between an employee and a fan:

    Mornhinweg said the two quarterbacks will be evaluated “every day, every play and every practice.”

    When asked what he was looking for in a starter, Mornhinweg sounded like someone expecting to make a choice.

    “Normally ... one man significantly removes himself from the other fellas,” he said. “When that happens, there will be a time when we make that call. The tougher one is when it’s very, very close, so we’ll be ready for that. Then you go on some gut instincts there.”

    If he isn't going to hold the edge on a running down then what is his role?

    I'm nt disagreeing with your overall assessment as if Coples drops into coverage more than twice a game I would be shocked. When you look at Terrell Suggs in virtually the same role, he had his hand on the ground about 75% of the time and rarely dropped back. So to say Coples is uncomfortable at this point standing up is basically meaningless.

    Heath Evans really seems like he has an agenda and should read up on the team he is covering before making observations.

    Rex places a distant last to some of the Defensive poster guru's on this board..

    Once the starter is named, the starter will most certainly get twice as many reps as the back up.

    i remember early in Sean Ellis's career we moved him inside for a season. He was not very effective and the next year he went back to playing on the outside.

    I have a feeling this is what will happen w/ couples. Hes not a permanent solution at OLB.
    Maybe one of these ****ing days the Jets can burn a draft pick on an OLB.

    Seriously dude you gotta stop with this whole cancel the qb competition thing. What reports are saying geno is comfortably ahead, other than the ones in your head? How is Geno "soundly outplaying" Sanchez? Geno supposedly throws a prettier ball than Markso far, so lets cancel the competition, take Mark out back and shoot him, and prepare Geno's HOF bust. We're four practices into camp....cool your friggin jets.

    I want the best guy to win the job, and it might take more than 4 practices to prove it.

    Either Mark Sanchez beat you up everyday in middle school or you actually are Geno Smith bc the amount of Sanhez hate and Geno manlove (or mancrust) you have is disturbing. To quote another poster on this board, "GOOD GRIEF!"

    I'm not saying Coples is going to be great but we have to trust REX on this one.

    Also I think people are thinking about this to much in the traditional LB role.

    Coples will be a LB as much as T. Suggs is. Its not going to be Coples standing up all the time. We will see his hand in the "fake grass" a lot of the time.

    No, he won't get twice as many reps.

    Once the games and season starts he will.

    Obviously he'd get twice as many reps with the starters and against the starting defense. He and Sanchez are alternating right now.

    Go back and look at the amount of reps Mark got when Brunnell and Tebow were here. It wasnt even close, some days it was 3:1.

    The backup QB gets reps with starters during camp. Which still isn't he'll get twice as many reps.

    And really doesn't mean he doesn't get enough reps with the starters. Its camp, there are plenty of reps available at this point.

    The only advantage to naming the starter earlier is to nip any issues with others on the team aligning with one QB. Doesn't seem to be an issue here

    A few days ago Geno Smith was saying how impressive Coples was running step for step with him and his athleticism and now a dope like Heath Evans says otherwise and that's who opinion you go with?

    I'll trust Rex Ryan and the players any day over Heath Evans.
