Can you imagine if he had a couple of seconds to throw the ball?

I hope our starting o-linemen stay healthy because the back ups are really, really bad.

....with 2 should have been INTs and 0 TDs.... the kid is talented and he's getting better. Lets not crown him the king of new york yet.

No  ... lets put that crown on one of the other dildos we have listed at QB that throw the ball into the opposing defenders arms with such accuracy they can't miss them. Give this kid a shot - he's the best looking thing we've seen in a long time albeit in a small sample size with apples and oranges defensive bias's.

IF..Geno was not this years big talked about 2nd round pick who supposedly should have gone in the first and then fired his agent yadda yadda....and was say just your typical not talked about 2nd round QB, like most QBs drafted in the 2nd round.....then he would be behind simms on depth chart at this point.  He clearly is not playing as well as Simms and Simms has clearly out performed him in the preseason.  Geno is still staring down wide receivers for crying out loud!! I'm not sayn Simms would follow through with this kind of play during the season either bc its truly hard to tell....but I surely have more faith in him than the other guys at this point..

 

and damn that boy got a gun of an arm...AND is accurate as all hell

Simms didn't make me wince every throw worrying about INTs. He throws darts, and Geno just looks terrible. If Simms doesn't get a legit shot at the job, and we end up losing this young slinger to some other team like the Pats... SOJ.

Geno self destructs in the opener, then Sexy Rexy puts Simms in....

 

OR...Sanchez is ready to play....self destructs....then Rexy puts in Smith...

 

 

OR....Richard Todd is signed....

The one on the 1st 2nd series, he threw is so hard, it was drilled right into thr corners chest and he couldnt get his hands on it in time. When is the last time a Jet QB went 33/44, throwing darts? Sign me up please.

Simms has looked the best of all of the Jets QB's and it isn't even close. He deserves to start Week 1 - but sadly won't.

Which is why this franchise is effed up. Even Wrecks in his presser said Simms did better than anyone in the NFL statistically in the preseason. SO instead they will simply hand the job to Smith. And if he craps the bed, then you'll turn to Simms. If you worried about Smith's confidence how does that fly?

 

Simms should start. if this imbecile Wrecks  tries to sneak him onto the Practice Squad he deserves to be fired.There is no way Simms is sneaking through waivers.

 

At a loss why anyone cares about Sanchez other than his salary cap number.

Simms has played the best this entire preseason. No-brainer. The best QB should play, and it's clearly Simms. However, Rex is an idiot, so Geno will be put in (not that I hate Geno, but he was simply outplayed by Simms).

 I don't think it is a good idea to get all het up.  There is a big diff between starter defense and scrub defense.  We all know he can throw it.  Most encouraging thing is he was fairly accurate, which he was not in college.  Pro D'S can play havoc with accuracy.

I don't watch a ton of college football. Does anyone know how Simms did?  Why was he undrafted?

agreed, Simms will never make it through waivers.  McElroy might though.  The player with the best chance of winning the game should start. Simple principle.  To date, the Jets coaches have acted that in the absence of Sanchez, Smith is that player.  That's the reason he received all of the snaps with the first team in practice along with Sanchez.  If that changes, they should start Simms.  Why not stick with the plan at this point though?  Smith has been taking the reps.  Prep Simms for the back up role.  Give Smith a game to see what he can do.  If he sucks, Simms starts.  It's not the end of the world, and it actually spares Simms some pressure of taking the big stage in game one.

He was replaced as QB his senior season due to ineffectivness. He completed less than 45% of his passes his last year and went undrafted.

First Ratliff then McElroy and now Simms.   The 3rd QB always seems to be the most popular with this team.  

 

With Sanchez and Smith ahead of him  I am confident that Simms will get his chance at some point this year.

O K

 

But who's better?   Smith?  Why?  Because he's a 2nd round pick?  Don't buy it

That appears to be the only faulty logic to start Smith. And really if you're worried about Smith's confidence, how will it go if he goes in there and screws the pooch next Sunday?

McElroy never lit it up in the pre season like the other two though. McElroy was only popular because the two ahead of him were so horrible last year.

I take it all you "start Simms now" guys also think Khalil Bell won the starting RB job last night and should start ahead of Ivory and Powell? Ya know, since he performed better than both of them and scored a lot more than any RB we have. It's only logical.

I take it that you "start Geno" guys also wanted to cut Danny Woodhead because it was just 3rd stringers he beasted against? Bell was steady last night - but not spectacular. He deserves the #3 RB roll for running hard and hitting the hole.

Lol.

 

Way to stay on topic. Mark Sanchez had more rushing yards during the regular season than Danny Woodhead following his 'great' preseason performances for the Jets in 2009. Do you really think bringing that up supports your position?

With how many opportunities? He looked pretty good to me once he got a chance to play with the Pats.

 

If your point is that because its 3rd stringers it won;t translate, I'm saying that sometimes it does. Sanchez and Geno played with the same offense and against the same caliber of defense and didn't do nearly as well. Ratliff performed poorly once he was against starters, but some guy named Romo did pretty well. Kurt Warner lead NFL Europe in passing. I guess you would have told me that was just NFL Europe? How do you think guys get the right to be promoted? Should no one ever get promoted?
