yep

 

I can't stand seeing Sanchez at QB, but if Smith couldn't obviously wrestle the job from him then he shouldn't be starting yet either.  Sanchez won't hold the job for long, and this 2013 team wasn't exactly destined for greatness anyway.

Given Smith's ankle, this decision should surporise no one....

Yes,  but I have a feeling that this defense may be really special....

If Geno doesn't play at all, it's the ankle. If he relieves Sanchez, it's simply because he's lost the competition.

With the way the gods like to toy with the jets I could see this turning into a Drew Brees/Chargers situation, lol.

I was in a Nike outlet store and the Sanchez jerseys were only $5 more than Tebow jerseys. I am talking about a Tebow Jet jersey.

 

That is crazy.  Sanchez is going to be the starting QB and they were the same price as a 3rd stringer from last year that is now on the Jets biggest rival.   Crazy.

not unexpected. I really don't think Geno is ready from what I saw last week. let him rest and learn the game. Week 11 will be here soon enough.

Sanchez was worse than both Gabbert and Ponder in DVOA, DYAR, passer rating, and completion percentage. To his credit, though, he barely beat them out in Y/A. Bully!

And this tells us we will be selecting a QB in next years draft as early as possible

Agree with starting Sanchez and letting Geno learn, but not week 11. After the bye, put Geno in and get him ready for next season. It's a rebuilding year anyway.

I think the Jets have a Week 10 bye this year.

Not necessarily.  The kid (Geno) already had a better, stronger, more accurate arm than Sanchez and is smarter.  He had a ton of adjustments to make with regard to footwork, dropping back, learning the speed of the NFL, reading the Ds, and learning the WCO.  The latter point shouldn't be underestimated imo as he basically had no playbook all four years in college.  Based on everything I've heard of it, the WCO is a very complicated offense, from its terminology/verbiage to play design.  I don't think it was a coincidence that Geno's worst days in TC came towards the end as they were installing more of the offense (more complex parts?).  I think he was finally overwhelmed with all he was having to think about.  LOTS of rookies go through that and their head swims.  Geno may later prove to not be a reliable quality NFL starter or even backup, but it's way too early to state that now simply because he lost the competition to Sanchez.  Sanchez has something to do with that.  By all accounts Sanchez has had a very good TC and is improved.  I expected that Mornhinweg would help Sanchez and make him a better QB.  How much better remains to be seen.  I still expect the panicky buttfumbles on occasion and the mind numbing stupid interceptions on occasion, but I think we'll see fewer of them, perhaps even a lot fewer of them, and his play will be better.  While the odds on it are sky high, I think there's a small chance that Sanchez could still develop into an average or perhaps even above average QB.  I doubt that will happen, but if it does, I think it will be a huge indictment of the Jets and the way they rushed him onto the field and the poor caliber of coaching he has received previously.
