Geno will start, the only question is game 1 or game 4. Anyone who expects Sunchez to shine in real games is delusional. 2 hits - and he returns to former self.
How Geno will play in real game we yet to have any idea.
I'm so glad nobody with an agenda is going to make the QB call. MM should have the most influence, and he comes across as a very fair, prudent individual. Let him evaluate who is best for the system. Not make the call based on who i hate
Starting to get really excited about Spadola. Kid is making plays everyday it seems.
Really wanna see what he can do against Detroit.
That's pretty,much it for tweets. Someone else can cover the presser. Later.
Rex said his boy is starting on Friday.
Yeah, I say don't throw his way
Of course Mark is starting. Just like Kellen Clemens started the 1st preseason game in 09. This is all for show. Geno will start week 2 of the preseason and will start every game moving forward.

Rotoworld typically bashes the Jets, but they're right on here:
Mark Sanchez will start the Jets' preseason opener on Friday, with Geno Smith coming off the bench.
Because the Jets don't already know what they have in a player with 62 career starts under his belt. "It's been an even competition," coach Rex Ryan claimed. "It seemed like the natural thing to do." It's obviously an indication that Sanchez is in the lead for the starting job, but could also be a matter of the Jets refusing to coddle Smith the way they did Sanchez as a rookie. Smith will also get reps with the first team. Most indications have Smith leading the "battle." We're beating a dead horse at this point, but it's time for the Jets to move on from their failed franchise quarterback Sanchez.
This is the point where we separate the fans who want the team to win, from those who are more concerned they be right about their position on Sanchez. Any evidence to the contrary must be denounced as temporary and meaningless.
I want either or both of the QBs to step it up big now, but there will be a special enjoyment to it if Sanchez really does turn things around because the board is going to be a raging ball of denial for weeks.
Unless Rex plans to go into the season with Sanchez as the starter, I disagree with his decision about the starting quarterback in the first preseason game.
Geno desperately needs the reps with the starters (and against the opposing defensive starters). Mark does not.
