    Mark Sanchez has thrown 3 or more interceptions in a game eight times in his career.

    I am having a hard time understanding these media idiots who want to anoint Sanchez as the starter simply because Geno threw 3 picks in his first preseason game. When Mark threw 5 picks against the Bills why wasn't he benched for Clemens? I mean 3 picks is such a disaster of epic proportions that proves Geno isn't ready right so what does 5 picks in a real game mean? A QB who threw 3 or more int 4 times in his rookie year was never benched and "took" them to the AFC championship game right? If you actually bothered to analyze the game and count the 4 drops Geno threw well over 60% and proved enough to get the nod opening day.

    Bill Polian took us to the first AFCC game, for if not for him, the NYJ do not make those playoffs.

    But I do agree, Geno was not as bad as everyone is saying, in fact, after watching the game twice, I was kind of impressed with the kid. Hell of an arm, beautiful delivery and touch on the ball. Seems to have resilience after all mistakes not losing his cook.

    I like him, and think he may be ok... He just has to play.

    Mark won the competition. He should start simply because of that. You can't have a competition and deny the rightful winner of his prize simply because you don't like him.

    Yes I suspect the CS will view the game more positively than fans did

    Meh. Although I think Geno should be the game 1 starter (even if Sanchez wasn't injured), 3 interceptions in a game is unacceptable. But this was a preseason game and Geno's 1st extended time against a good NFL defense.

    This was a good learning experience for Geno. His mistakes are very correctable. Hopefully he throws 3+ INT's in a game no more than once or twice this season.

    Its just that posters like you were expecting Geno to go in to last nights game and unrealistically throw 4 Td's and be the savior that slayed the dragon(Sanchez).
    All along it was Geno was better than Sanchez hands down, now when he has a piss poor game , its he only had 3 ints - Sanchez had 5 once.
    Reality is he's not ready for the NFL yet, the offense run at WVU looks nothing like an NFL offense,he needs to learn the playbook , learn the speed of the NFL game not from some Green & white scrimmage or practice in shells. He needs to sit with the coaches and dissect film and prepare for defenses that are not vanilla. He has the tools to be good, lets not mistake 3 ints and a boneheaded safety as being there just yet.

    Until the Jets say it you cannot assume that. Geno was much better than his stats looked last night, and Sanchez worse than his stats. It is very possible Geno is ahead. He offers much more upside and can do things that Sanchez cannot.

    But to just state Sanchez won like you know it is ridiculous

    Exactly

    I've been one of Mark's biggest critics for going on 2 years now.

    But to simply hand Geno the job is the same bullsh*t favoritism and coddling that people have been bashing Rex and Co. for over the past few years.

    The kid isn't ready yet.

    Don't get what the hell is so hard to understand about that.

    If we're going on upside, there's no reason to have a competition.

    Geno had the opportunity to take the job and he **** the bed. Barring this injury holding him back, Mark will start week 1.

    Keep out hope if you want, but the rest of us have accepted it.

    LOL you are becoming pathetic dude

    You're spinning as if the amount of posts you put up on this board is going to get Geno the job.

    Did he play the whole game - or just three quarters? Compare apples to apples please.

    Don't get what the hell is so hard to understand about that.
    And if it were a real competition between all the QBs, Simms should actually be the Jets starter on opening day.

    What are you people watching?
    Sanchez because he WON'T be here next year, had to knock Smith out, KO style. He hasn't come close, in fact, Geno has already proven that he has better touch & accuracy on screens & slants.
    He had 17 live snaps B4 last nights game, and that was after having a bad wheel to practice on to get ready for his debut.
    Sanchez threw 5 picks in a regular season game vs one of the worst defenses in the league in 2009 (the Buffalo Bills) & his team ran for OVER 300 YARDS! That was the 1st time in NFL history that a team LOST the game when rushing for over 300 yards.
    So, based on history, I am not going to base Genos future career, on a preseason game in which the running game was CRAP, one of the picks although clearly thrown behind Spadola was picked (felt Spadola needed to fight for that ball a little more, another lesson for him), stepping out for a safety, (he was clearly a little jumpy & nervous, understandble under the circumstances), he's not the 1st to do something like that in this league.
    The scrutiny in this league because of all of media reporting on pro football, is so over the top it's nauseating.
    My god, can you imagine pulling out the stats from every starting QB in this league & disecting their preseason game stats? It would probably be pretty ugly, especially 1st year guys that went on to start the season.
    So, step away from the ledge, be thankful that Sanchez isn't badly hurt (wishing injury on our own players or any other team for that matter is pretty sick), and look at this like things fell in place for Geno to get his chance. Give him time, let MM work with him see where we are at the end of the year. Go Jets!

    8 times is over 13% -

    That is amazingly awful. Yet the entire world seems to be in an uproar over the fact that he was asked to play late in a pre-season game.

    No, he wouldn't.

    Simms looked serviceable against 3rd stringers and guys who will be working in a cubicle in two weeks.

    Great. Super. Awesome.

    sanchez has 69 ints and 26 fumbles in 4 seasons (17 lost). in 4 years his overall qb rating is 71.7 and his completion % is 55.1. he has 68 passing tds and 12 more rushing, for 80 total. so that's 86 turnovers and 80 tds. this preseason he's got 2 td passes, 2 picks and a fumble.

    based on last year's stats, his 71.7 rating ranks him 31st (where he was last season) among qbs in 2012 and his completion % ranks him 29th.

    So is the point you're making is...How much worse can Geno really be?

    Sanchez is what he is, he'll have about the same amount of TDs as INT's - completion % just over 50 - and rank in the bottom 5 in QBR. So Geno had a poor performance in his first pre-season game. So what??? How much worse can he really be than Sanchez?
