Exactly!

Exactly what that we saw Geno Smith pull a Mark Sanchez last night?  Who cares theres no way Smith is any worse than Sanchez will be as the starter.

 

Have you watched the last 2 seasons of Jets football?

I don't want to depress anybody, but Colt McCoy is either going to be cut or traded from San Fran.

 

I would be all for this.

Why aren't the Jets embracing this as their chance to suck for Clowney alla the 2011 Colts did for Luck? Yea Clowney isn't a QB, but he is possibly the best defensive prospect to come out ever!

 

If Geno develops into a quality starting QB, then I'd love to add Clowney.  If he doesn't, the Jets HAVE to get a QB.  Period.  QB  is THE most important position on any team and trumps even the glaring need of the Jets for a stud pass rushing OLB.

What the ****. Why the hell are we potentially wasting cap space on these bums. Just start Simms or Smith if it's that bad.

 

On this we are in total agreement.

amazing how we have two QBs in Mcelroy & Simms and they arent even getting a breath of airtime. this organization is rotten on the inside. Seriously bringing in any of these guys is a slap in the face to fans.

One thousand percent agree,..Kurt Warner was literally a punchline when Trent Green went down,..now I'm obviously not comparing either one of these guys to Warner but just saying...what the hell, Matt Leinart?..jeez.

Since when is the vet min "wasting cap space"?  Geez.  Settle down.  Remember, these two future stars were on the team all of 2012 and weren't able to unseat Sanchez or Tebow.  They are having guys in.  Let's all have a fit!

I would like the Jets to try and get Kellen Moore from the Lions. He is small, but he is very smart and a very accurate passer.

It makes no sense.  That was the last "real" pre-season game.  If Sanchez is out for a couple of weeks, if he gets PUP'ed, or even if he's out for the season, what does it matter? We have 3 QBs on the roster.  If there was an available 4th that the team already thinks is an upgrade to Simms or McElroy or both, then what the hell are they doing dicking around with those two guys all summer long? 

 

We need 3 QBs.  In Sanchez's absence, we have 3 QBs.

 

Unless they think Geno is a better option than the 2 guys duking it out for the #3 job BUT they don't want to put him in just yet out of fear of him panicking his way into picking up bad habits that are hard to break out of.  Even still, a Trent Edwards could have been had for the veteran minimum (on the cap) so he isn't going to appreciably cost more than a McElroy or Simms (one of whom would be cut loose to offset the difference).  Maybe another $300-500K at the most.  I'm not big on throwing money away on a lost season, but the position dictates that it's treated differently than picking up another stop-gap corner for an extra $400K that we won't be able to carry over to 2014.

 

Either way, there's something uneasy/unsettling going on behind closed doors if they bring in another QB.

I agree.  Part of me would love to be a fly on the wall in the room where the discussions are ongoing, but another part of me knows it would probably just make me sick, angry and very frustrated.

Yeah it's probably a good thing none of us are in the room where we could hear what was going on but not be able to yell at any of them (or worse), as would be appropriate with some of this stuff.

Well, Leinart signed with the Bills, John Beck was never scheduled, and Trent Edwards was already signed in Chicago. Time for someone to take Gil Brandt out behind the woodshed.

Didn't realize that he was the one who gave the names of the QBs the Jets were gonna bring in.  IMO they shouldn't bring anyone in.  They have 3 QBs on the roster and didn't bring in another vet after Garrard retired, and they should just go with what they have.  It's a win-win situation.  They don't use up any cap space, Geno gets a chance to develop on the job and prove himself and/or Simms or McElroy get a chance to prove themselves.  If one of the present QBs develop and proves to be a quality starter, great.   If two do, it's gravy.  If none of them do and the team finishes with a top 3 draft pick, they really didn't lose anything, and since it's a rebuilding year, it will actually benefit the team by accelerating their rebuild by having much better draft position.

If the Jets had signed Leinart, my days as a Jets fan would have been over.  I would have then known that Idzik was as clueless as his predecessors.

They need a bridge so as to at least have the option of keeping Geno on the bench. If he starts Day One, the team is going 1-8 and, because he's not ready, Geno will make plays every week that make the Buttfumble look like Montana-to-Rice.

We'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.  If Sanchez was healthy, then I'd have said start Sanchez until Geno is ready, but if Sanchez is out for any length of time, I just don't see the point of bringing in some outside QB, who is no better than Sanchez, is just gonna eat up some cap space and may not play any better than Geno, McElroy, or Simms would.  IMO the worst case scenario would be for them to bring in a QB and he leads them to an 8-8 record.  The season would still suck and then draft position would be screwed for next year.  If Geno wasn't able to supplant the vet by season's end or didn't develop, they'd still desperately need a QB and have no realistic shot at one barring a Ditka kind of trade.  

 

I still think it would have been best for Geno if he got to sit, but since they don't have a vet who knows the offense on board already, I think they might as well just go with Geno.
