Should Jets consider QB Matt Cassel  ?
nyj.gifThe New York Jets are desperate for a quarterback and need to turn
over every rock to find competition for the embattled Mark Sanchez.

Should the Jets consider signing Matt Cassel this offseason ?

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback is about to be released now
that the team has agreed to trade for San Francisco's Alex Smith.
The Chiefs have a new head coach in Andy Reid and a new quarterback in
Smith. It's time for the Chiefs to part ways with Cassel after four
seasons.

Cassel, 30, would not be a long-term solution for New York. He threw
for just 1,796 yards with six touchdowns and 12 interceptions last
season. But Cassel could add immediate competition for Sanchez, which
would only make both players better. Cassel also has plenty of starting
experience with Kansas City and New England and he made the Pro Bowl in
2010.

Most importantly, Cassel could provide the Jets a cheap alternative.
Other options like Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Matt Flynn
would require the Jets trading draft picks and accepting a larger
salary. The Jets have a tight salary cap this offseason and need to make
wise, cost-effective decisions.

Thoughts on Jets, David Garrard
 

The New York Jets continue their search to find a viable quarterback. The New York Daily News reports the Jets recently worked out veteran quarterback David Garrard.



3636.jpg
Garrard
Here are some quick-hit thoughts on the Jets and Garrard :
  • This falls in line with New York general manager John Idzik's
    declaration to add competition to the quarterback competition. Garrard
    made a good case to be the starter last year in Miami. He was the best
    quarterback in training camp, which also included Matt Moore and rookie Ryan Tannehill, until a back injury ended Garrard's season. If healthy, Garrard, 35, may be able to give struggling incumbent quarterback Mark Sanchez a run for the job.
  • Working out Garrard makes sense from a schematic standpoint, as
    well. Garrard is a West Coast quarterback. He had success with it in
    Jacksonville and also showed very little learning curve with Miami's
    West Coast scheme. New Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is
    changing New York from a ground-and-pound offense to a precision
    passing, West Coast team. This gives Garrard a chance to thrive.
  • Finally, this further signals the end for Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow.
    The Jets are looking to add a veteran to compete with Sanchez and
    probably a developmental quarterback via the draft. If the Jets sign
    Garrard or any veteran, that makes Tebow the odd man out. New York is
    hoping Tebow could bring back value with a trade. But the market for
    Tebow appears non-existent.

I have been told by a pretty decent source down here that the Jets are in stealth mode but are very very high on Duke's QB Sean Renfree in this draft. Not that it means anything but some current blurbs:

http://www.pros2prep...b-in-nfl-draft/

 

Bit, 5th round? (Maybe 4th if you fear losing him. I dont see him lasting to the 6th)

Bit, you have any data/heard 'talk' on Sean??

Is Tim Tebow still in the Jets plans ?


The conventional wisdom is that if the New York Jets can't trade Tim Tebow,

they will cut him at some point in the offseason.But is that's what the Jets

really plan to do? General manager JohnIdzik suggested in a conference

call Monday with season ticket holders that Tebow could still be in their

training camp this summer.He said of the quarterbacks, "Let it play out this

offseason and intotraining camp. I think that'll be healthy for all concerned,

includingTim.''


Now it could be Idzik was just posturing and trying to convince a
team that wants Tebow that it has to trade for him because they may not
cut him.But an NFL.com writer suggested the Jets shouldn't cut Tebow and that

if they bring him to camp, it won't create a circus atmosphere because
he would be old news. And maybe new offensive coordinator Marty
Mornhinweg could find a role for him.


Of course, this could all be a smokescreen. Maybe the Jets will cut him.


It's obvious that Tebow's future continues to be the focus of much
speculation. The only certain thing is that regardless of what happens,
he won't be signed by the Jaguars. General manager David Caldwell has
been emphatic that he is not in the Jaguars' plans.

The new league year begins in five days ... and it's all quiet on the Tim Tebow front. Strange.

GM John Idzik create a mild stir Monday when, on a call with
season-ticket holders, he gave a convoluted answer on Tebow's future
with the Jets, and it came out sounding like there's a chance Tebow
could go to training camp with the team.


 

ny_i_tebow1_sy_300.jpgTim Tebow was used mostly as a runner in 2012, throwing just eight passes.

That won't happen. The Jets are actively shopping

Tebow, according to league sources. Failing a trade,

they will release him.

"I don't see anyone trading for Tebow," said an

opposing personnel director, speaking on the

condition of anonymity. "If the Jets get
compensation, that's impressive."

Who would sign him as a free agent ? Would

anybody sign him ? The personnel director speculated

the 49ers could be a landing spot. They
run the read-option offense with Colin Kaepernick and,

once the Alex Smith-to-Kansas City trade becomes

official March 12, the Niners will need a backup quarterback.

Could the Jets include Tebow in a Darrelle Revis
package to the Niners? Now we're really playing Fantasy Football,
although there has been a lot of that going on lately in these parts.

A small sampling of league executives offered up a few possible
destinations for Tebow: the Eagles (Chip Kelly's spread offense), the
Patriots (former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels is the OC), the Bears
(past associations with Marc Trestman and Matt Cavanaugh) and the Cards
(Tebow has been working out in Arizona).

At this point, it's all speculative, but Tebow's next stop will be
one of the most intriguing offseason storylines. The Jets better hope he
doesn't land on their 2013 schedule, because games against scorned
ex-Jets usually don't work out well for them. Kerry Rhodes is still is smiling.

New general manager John Idzik has made it clear he wants to bring in

competition for embattled starter Mark Sanchez, and now new offensive

coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has given some idea of what he wants in

a quarterback during an interview on the team’s official website, NewYorkJets.com.

And it’s not about completion percentage. "No, absolutely not," Mornhinweg said.

“Some of the great ones have really not thrown for such a great
accuracy,” Mornhinweg said. “Steve Young was astronomical accuracy-wise.
Brett Favrewasn't. Brett Favre, I believe won an MVP two different times out of
the three times that he won it, throwing for 58, 59, 60 percent,
somewhere in there. So they all come in different shapes and sizes.
“Now those guys, those men that throw for a little bit less accuracy
typically are generating a little bit bigger pays on occasion. so
there's a little bit of a tradeoff there.”

It’s good news for Sanchez, who ranked 30th in the league in

completion percentage at 54.3, down from a career-high 56.7 in 2011.
Atlanta’s Matt Ryan and Denver’s Peyton Manning, tied at 68.6,

led the league, followed by Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers (67.2).

Super Bowl winner Joe Flacco was 19th in the league for Baltimore

with a 59.7 completion percentage.The sticking point with Sanchez is

his touchdown-to-interception ratio. In 2011 he had 18 interceptions

and 26 touchdowns. In 2012, he had the same number of interceptions

but just 13 passing TDs. The Jets were not generating a lot of big

plays, however, and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano was fired after

a single season.

The interview yielded another nugget. Mornhinweg said he was
planning to use running backs as short yardage receivers when
applicable.“If our backs have that talent we certainly will do that

you may seethat a little bit more than you have in the past,”

Mornhinweg said.Mornhinweg clarified that he planned to use the strengths of the

individuals he has on the final roster.Given the offensive challenges

of last two season, why did Mornhinweg take the job?

“I love challenges and I think this is a great challenge,” Mornhinweg said

Despite a turnover-plagued season that resulted in his benching,

Mark Sanchez likely will head into the New York Jets' training camp

as the favorite in an anticipated quarterback competition. "Mark will

probably have just a little bit of a leg up, it wouldappear," offensive

coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Monday in his first

Q&A with New York-area reporters.Mornhinweg, hired in January

to replace Tony Sparano, said there are"a select few" on offense

that have earned the right to be No. 1 on thedepth chart. But he

didn't include Sanchez in that group, stressingthere will be an

open competition.

The only experienced quarterbacks on the roster are Sanchez,

Greg McElroy and Tim Tebow, whose NFL future is a mystery.

Mornhinweg said he had a "long discussion" with Tebow, claiming he
has given "an awful lot of thought" on how he could incorporate Tebow
into his offense.

But don't count on a Tebow return. The Jets are prepared to part ways
with the popular backup, who was unhappy last season in his Wildcat
role.

Tebow, speaking at a function Saturday night in Naples, Fla.,

admitted he doesn't know where he'll be playing."I may not know

where I'm going next, but I know what's guiding me," he told Naplesnews.com.
 

Based on Mornhinweg's comments, it sounds like the Jets don't expect
to acquire a quarterback who would pose a serious threat to Sanchez's
job. They recently visited with free agent David Garrard, who hasn't

played in two years. They may investigate Brady Quinn in free agency.

Clearly, they're counting on Mornhinweg to fix Sanchez, whose star
has faded since back-to-back AFC Championship Game appearances in 2009
and 2010.

"I'm not sure that's the [right] term, that he needs to be fixed,"
Mornhinweg said. "Mark's got a lot of strengths. He has played at a high
level."

But not last season.

Sanchez committed 26 turnovers for the second straight year and was
benched in Week 16 in favor of McElroy. An $8.25 million salary
guarantee in 2013 likely saved Sanchez's roster spot, limiting the Jets'
options.

"It's been just a touch scattered," said Mornhinweg, understating
Sanchez's struggles. "He's proven he can play at a winning level, at a
high level. ... Now his challenge is, and our challenge is, playing at
that level on a much more consistent basis."

Speaking of Sanchez's attributes, Mornhinweg mentioned several
come-from-behind victories in 2010. He also said Sanchez has the arm to
make all the necessary throws. The question is accuracy.

Mornhinweg, previously the Philadelphia Eagles' coordinator, will install

a West Coast system, which is predicated on accuracy. Sanchez is a

55-percent career passer.

Mornhinweg, echoing the theme of new general manager John Idzik,
promised a quarterback competition -- even if he couldn't name the full
slate of competitors.

With regard to Tebow, Mornhinweg was careful to couch his remarks by
saying, "If he's on the team." But he spoke effusively of Tebow, who
fumed last season when he was passed over for the starting job.

"He's heard my thoughts on the situation and he had some thoughts as
well," Mornhinweg said of his recent conversation with Tebow. "If he's
on this football team, which he is right now, I would do it a certain
way and try to utilize all of our players that can help us win a
football game.

"First of all, he would need to take reps at quarterback. Some of his
other skills would certainly help a football team. What he did in
Denver in a year ago, that was something else. The man can play
football. How you utilize him would certainly be the key.

"He's
on our football team right now, so it's my duty and responsibility to
give some thought on how he could help us win the next football game."

Another pressing issue is wide receiver Santonio Holmes,
who is recovering from foot surgery. The Jets want him to take a pay
cut on his $11 million base salary, according to sources. If he refuses,
there's a chance he could be released.

Mornhinweg said he hasn't talked to Holmes.

"I would expect him to be healthy at some point before training camp," he said.

Quarterbacks Mark Sanchez versus David Garrard in training camp? That prospect

became a reality when the New York Jets agreed to terms with Garrard on Monday.
nyj.gifGarrard, 35, is in the twilight of his NFL career. But Garrard does have a
career's worth of experience in the West Coast offense, which New York
will run in 2013. And if last year is any indication, Garrard still has
something left to at least push Sanchez for the starting job.

Garrard spent last spring and summer with the rival Miami Dolphins.

He nearly won Miami's starting job before a freak knee injury off the

field sidelined him. Then-rookie Ryan Tannehill took over in Miami,

and the rest is history.

The Jets are hoping Garrard will provide similar competition. He was
a risky but cheap alternative. Considering New York's tight salary cap,
this was probably the best the Jets could afford with such limited
resources. The Jets already owe Sanchez a guaranteed salary of $8.25
million next season. New York can't spend significantly more on
quarterbacks this year.

Signing Garrard also rules out any chance of the Jets trading for

Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Matt Flynn. New York has

its two veterans on the roster and probably will draft a developmental

quarterback next month.

Jets fans were hoping for Alex Smith, Flynn or Michael Vick
this offseason to make the Jets more competitive. Instead, they got
David Garrard. It's further proof that 2013 might be a long and rough
rebuilding year for New York.

David Garrard was on a Jets conference call yesterday talking about
how excited he is that he has been promised an opportunity to unseat
Mark Sanchez as the starting quarterback.

 

Watch your back, Sanchise, this guy is a threat.

 

This isn’t Tim Tebow. This isn’t a Wildcat. It is a wild card.

 

But it is this simple: Until the Jets find themselves a franchise
quarterback who can make Tom Brady and Bill Belichick sweat, they will
remain irrelevant Buttfumblers playing in a deserted stadium with a new
head coach and fourth offensive coordinator in four years.


It is a big reason why they should trade Darrelle Revis, so they can

add resources to find that franchise quarterback in a quarterback-driven
league, so they have the kind of salary-cap flexibility they will need
for the most important position in the field.Keeping Revis would
make coach Rex Ryan happy and give him a chance to field a top-five
defense, but after what we have seen from Sanchez these past two
seasons, and what we haven’t seen from the injury-plagued Garrard these
last two seasons, only delirious diehards who bleed Jets green would try
to make a case that this has a chance to be playoff team in 2013.

 

Forget Brady for a moment. Look around the AFC. The Dolphins secured their
franchise quarterback last year, and now Ryan Tannehill gets to throw
deep to Mike Wallace. The Bills, after cutting Ryan Fitzpatrick, will
now draft their franchise quarterback (Geno Smith? Matt Barkley?)
probably with the eighth pick, one slot in front of the Jets.

 

The Colts sucked for Andrew Luck, and suck no more. Andy Reid and the Chiefs
filled their quarterback black hole with the competent Alex Smith. The
Ravens locked up Joe Flacco. The Bengals have been to back-to-back
playoffs with Andy Dalton, although the Jets were blaring that trumpet
about the Sanchise two years ago.

 

The Titans don’t know yet whether they were right on Jake Locker, same

with the Jaguars on Blaine Gabbert. Same with the Browns on Brandon Weeden.

The Steelers (Big Ben Roethlisberger), Chargers (Philip Rivers) and Texans (Matt Schaub)
all have better quarterback situations than the Jets. Need I mention the
Broncos (Peyton Manning) ?

 

The 49ers (Colin Kaepernick, second round) and Seahawks

(Russell Wilson, third round) have reminded us that you can find your

franchise quarterback after the first round. In which case someone such

as Ryan Nassib of Syracuse, or perhaps E.J. Manuel of Florida State would

make sense for the Jets in the second round. What started the Jets down

this road to ruin was missing on Kellen Clemens. Mike Tannenbaum and

Eric Mangini smartly drafted D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Nick Mangold in

the first round in 2006 and passed on Vince Young,Matt Leinart and

Jay Cutler — in part because they saw Clemens as their quarterback

of the future. Ouch.

 

And so Chad Pennington begat Brett Favre who begat Sanchez who

begets Garrard. A healthy Garrard, with his professionalism and

leadership and mobility and familiarity with the West Coast system

and penchant for avoiding grievous interceptions and Buttfumbles,

is no long shot to beat out Sanchez.“My knee is great right now,”

Garrard said. This will mark the first time in his five years that Sanchez

had a legitimate contender for his job.“My agent always says, ‘The

cream will rise to the top,’ ” Garrard said.The good news, for those

of you who have not taken a Lambeau Leap off theSanchez bandwagon,

is that there is nowhere to go but up, that if Sanchez can survive the

Tim Tebow circus, he can survive anything, that Marty Mornhinweg

will be an upgrade over Tony Sparano.

 

Then again, Sanchez — or Garrard — isn’t any less set up to fail given his
supporting cast. Will tight end Dustin Keller leave? Will Brandon Moore
leave? Will Santonio Holmes act up and out? Will Stephen Hill drop the
dropsies once and for all? Who’s the running back ?“Hits I’m not worried

about,” Garrard said. “I’ve never worried about hits.”

 

He never has played for the Jets, who need better than the Garrard Couple.
The franchise quarterback trumps the franchise cornerback.

I am not sold on Flynn, but trading him now saves the Seahawks $5.25 in cap space over the next two years.  He could very likely go for a just low pick if any team is actually interested.

The thin free-agent quarterback market just gained a new player. The Kansas City Chiefs released quarterback Matt Cassel on Thursday after four up-and-down seasons.Cassel made his name with the New England Patriots before leaving for Kansas City in 2009. Could Cassel rejoin the AFC East ?

 

~ ~ The Jets just signed veteran quarterback David Garrard to compete with Mark Sanchez.Going after another veteran quarterback, especially with very littlecap room, might be overkill for a team that must fill so many other needs. I do not expect the Jets to go after Cassel. But if Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb soon becomes available, which is a strong possibility, New York might consider it. New Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg coached Kolb in Philadelphia and will run a similar West Coast system.

If QB Kevin Kolb is released by the Cardinals over the next 48 hours,

which is highly likely, the Jets will consider him if the price is right, according

to a league source.New Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg coached

Kolb with the Eagles from 2007 to 2010, and the Jets would like to have a
quarterback on the roster that knows Mornhinweg's system and could make
an easy transition.Kolb, traded to the Cards in 2011, will receive a $2 million

roster bonus if he's still on their roster Saturday -- and that won't happen
unless he's willing to take a pay cut. He also has a $9 million base salary.

The Cards, rebuilding at quarterback, signed journeyman Drew Stanton

Wednesday and gave him $3 million in guarantees.

The level of the Jets' interest in Kolb will be dictated by money.
As seen over the last two days, they're not willing to spend a lot in
their rebuilding effort under new GM John Idzik. They already have an
$8.25 million guarantee committed to incumbent Mark Sanchez, and

they'd prefer not to add another significant contract at the position.

They signed free agent David Garrard to a one-year deal, but it was

only $1.1 million, including a $100,000 signing bonus.The Jets plan

to have an open competition for the starting job. Right now, the depth

chart consists of Sanchez, Garrard, Greg McElroy and Tim Tebow,

whose days are numbered.

Kolb has a 9-12 career record as a starter, with 28 touchdowns,

25 interceptions and a 78.9 passer rating.

Jets may be adding another player to the quarterback mix.


The Daily News reported on Wednesday that Kevin Kolb could land on
Rex Ryan’s team if he becomes available on the open market. On Thursday
morning, Kolb’s future in Arizona became clearer after a NFL Network
report suggested that the Cardinals are expected to release the
quarterback before he’s due a $5 million roster bonus on Saturday.


New offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg worked with Kolb for three
seasons with the Eagles. Sources told the News that Kolb’s familiarity
with Mornhinweg’s West Coast Offense would make him a viable contender
to become the Jets’ starting quarterback. The Jets are interested in
adding Kolb at the right price, according to sources.


On Monday, Mornhinweg said that Sanchez had an edge over the rest of
the Jets’ quarterbacks. Hours later, Gang Green signed veteran David
Garrard to a one-year deal. Tim Tebow, who is expected to be released,
Greg McElory and Matt Simms are also on the roster.“Mark will probably

have just a little bit of a leg up it wouldappear,” Mornhinweg said Monday.

“But I would like to have competitionat that position as well as all the other

positions.”

However, Kolb may ultimately win the job and be the Week 1 starter.


The Cardinals traded for Kolb two years ago with the expectation that
he’d become their franchise quarterback, but injuries – and a horrific
offensive line – curtailed his production. Kolb, who has a career 9-12
record as a starter and 78.9 passer rating, had 17 touchdowns and 11
interceptions in just 15 games the past two seasons.He became

expendable after the Cardinals signed Drew Stanton, who played for

the Jets for a week a year ago before being traded after Tim Tebow

was acquired. Arizona may also be looking to add a quarterback
with the seventh overall pick in next month's draft.

Unable to reach an agreement on a restructured contract, the Arizona Cardinals

have released quarterback Kevin Kolb.Kolb was set to make a $2 million bonus

if he was still on the club's roster Saturday. He also had a $9 million base salary

for this season.Kolb's future in Arizona became even cloudier Wednesday when

the team agreed to a three-year contract with quarterback Drew Stanton.

Thanks to injuries and his unsteady play, Kolb appeared in just six

games with the Cardinals last season, throwing for 1,169 yards with
eight touchdowns and three interceptions.Kolb, 28, threw for 17 touchdowns

and 11 interceptions in two seasons with Arizona after being acquired from

the Philadelphia Eagles. He was a 2007 second-round pick of the Eagles.
 

Star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, in an interview with ESPN Radio's

"SVP and Russillo" show Thursday, said he has confidence that new

coach Bruce Arians would improve the team's quarterback situation.


The Cardinals, whose offense ranked dead last in the NFL last season,

also have tendered an offer to quarterback Brian Hoyer.

The New York Jets have been looking far and wide for legitimate quarterback competition

for Mark Sanchez. The best the Jets could do so far was David Garrard, who hasn't thrown

a pass in the regular season since 2010.But another enticing option emerged for the Jets

on Friday when the Arizona Cardinals released former starter Kevin Kolb. New York would

be wise to go after Kolb's services. In fact, there are reasons to believe the Jets may be

the favorites.

Kolb spent the early part of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles
developing under Marty Mornhinweg, who is now the offensive coordinator
in New York. Kolb is proficient in the West Coast offense and knows
Mornhinweg's version of the system well. Kolb also will have a chance to
compete for a starting job in New York, which has to be appealing.

As usual, a potential Jets-Kolb marriage could come down to money.
The Jets have a tight salary cap and must be careful not to be outbid by
other teams with deeper pockets. Matt Cassel recently signed a one-year,

$4 million contract with the Minnesota Vikings, and Kolb may get similar

offers on the open market. If the Jets get into a bidding war, that would

lower New York's chances.

Kolb is not the long-term solution for a quarterback to build a team
around. But right now the Jets need competency at quarterback during
this rough rebuilding stage. Kolb certainly fits that description.Unless the

Jets are falling asleep at the wheel in free agency, expect New York to be

strong contenders for Kolb.

The New York Jets have been looking far and wide for legitimate quarterback competition

for Mark Sanchez. The best the Jets could do so far was David Garrard, who hasn't thrown

a pass in the regular season since 2010.But another enticing option emerged for the Jets

on Friday when the Arizona Cardinals released former starter Kevin Kolb. New York would

be wise to go after Kolb's services. In fact, there are reasons to believe the Jets may be

the favorites.

Kolb spent the early part of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles
developing under Marty Mornhinweg, who is now the offensive coordinator
in New York. Kolb is proficient in the West Coast offense and knows
Mornhinweg's version of the system well. Kolb also will have a chance to
compete for a starting job in New York, which has to be appealing.

As usual, a potential Jets-Kolb marriage could come down to money.
The Jets have a tight salary cap and must be careful not to be outbid by
other teams with deeper pockets. Matt Cassel recently signed a one-year,

$4 million contract with the Minnesota Vikings, and Kolb may get similar

offers on the open market. If the Jets get into a bidding war, that would

lower New York's chances.

Kolb is not the long-term solution for a quarterback to build a team
around. But right now the Jets need competency at quarterback during
this rough rebuilding stage. Kolb certainly fits that description.Unless the

Jets are falling asleep at the wheel in free agency, expect New York to be

strong contenders for Kolb.

  Kevin Kolb, even dismissing his injuries, couldn't beat out John Skeleton.   Skeleton has got to be one of the worst QBs ever seen in the past 20 years, if longer.   How that guy won a starting job is beyond anyone.   If Kolb couldn't beat out Skeleton, I don't see him beating out Sanchez.  Sanchez sucks, but did anybody actually watch the Cardinals games last year?  At least Skeleton had Fitzgerald.    

 

 If he comes cheap, aka less than a mil, why not. Otherwise, why bother.  

 This offseason seems to be "cheap players often injured.. if we get lucky, we look like geniuses.  If we don't, nobody expected us to be good with these players anyway."

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan said Mark Sanchez
would begin the offseason program as the team's starting quarterback,
but he made it clear that Sanchez's hold on the position is not
guaranteed."The first snap, he'll be the guy running out there first," Ryan said

Tuesday morning at the NFL owners meetings. "But there's going to be
competition at that spot, there's no question about it. We need to get
better at the quarterback position."


Ryan also said that Tim Tebow, Sanchez's backup for most of last year,

would get the opportunity to compete."He's on the roster, and he'll get

a chance to compete," Ryan said of Tebow. "We'll see how the offseason

plays out, but right now Tim is on our roster."


A league source indicated to ESPNNewYork.com on Tuesday, however,
that nothing has changed with regard to Tebow's status on the team. The
Jets are holding out hope they can trade him and are in no rush to do
so. They could stretch the process out to the draft, but failing a
trade, the Jets will release him, the source said.


The Jets brought in veteran David Garrard

to provide competition for Sanchez, who was the unchallenged starter at
the position for his first three years in the league before his 2012
struggles led to the temporary elevation of Greg McElroy
to the spot. Garrard has not played in the NFL in two years and comes
with plenty of injury concerns, but Ryan said the team worked him out
enough to be confident that he could compete for the starting job.


"We wouldn't have brought in David if we didn't think he could

provide competition," Ryan said. "Now, he hasn't played in two years,
and we recognize that. But the main thing is, when we go through the
process, that we feel good about what comes out of it."


That could mean Garrard as a replacement for Sanchez or as a kick in

the tail to prompt Sanchez to show improvement in the face of the first
serious challenge to his job security as an NFL quarterback. 


Ryan also was asked about the idea of adding Kevin Kolb, recently

released by Arizona, to the mix at quarterback. He indicated that the

idea had not yet been seriously discussed."If we feel that would help

the competition, then that's something we would look into," Ryan said.

Ryan spent much of his hourlong session at the AFC coaches breakfast
expressing his trademark confidence in his team, more than once saying
things like "people should be more scared of us than we are of them."


He listed young players on the defense -- specifically linebacker

DeMario Davis and defensive linemen Quinton Coples and Muhammad Wilkerson

-- as players who he expected to perform at a higher level this year.
But considering the value of the position in today's game, he spent
precious little time talking about his quarterback situation and was
asked toward the end about the extent to which the uncertainty there
challenges his overall confidence.


"I'm confident that we're going to improve at that position," Ryan

said. "That position will play much better. That position will protect
the ball better. I'm confident that we're going to see that."

 I'm not sure what people expected. They were delusional in thinking Sanchez would just be benched.  He's still Ryans's guy.  He's still making a ton of money.  And unless Sanchez pisses Ryan off and Garrard knocks everybody off their feet and looks like Tom Brady,  there's a very good chance Sanchez starts game 1.    People just can't come to accept this reality.

One of those two things matters way more to the organization than the other. Nobody played Sanchez because he's the guy here, they played him because the alternative was Greg McElroy or Tim Tebow (or Mark Brunell before that).

No..I have to disagree..

 

    They played him, and will play him all year, because RR has Woody snookered.. Woody is clueless about football, RR is not a head coach..he is something, but head coach he is too self important.  RR has tied himself to Mark Sanchez, they have to pay him almost 9 million bucks.. so they are going to get their money's worth..every dime. They are loading up on worthless QB's to make Marky lookey great.. LOL.. his competition is Garrard and McSackelroy.. they dare not start Tebow, or they will be stuck with Mark sitting on the bench

with no hope of returning to starter, and his 8.5 guaranteed money .. LOL !! You and everyone else knows if Tebow was or is inserted at any point, and makes it into a real football game.. he would stay starter..period.  And you know what would happen if he was given half a shot at it...
