Re-injured?  When did he injure it first?  It was his ankle that was hurt earlier.

Hopefully.

 

Joking aside, that is a great question.

so if Costello's wrong about what part of the leg is hurt, can we believe him that Geno won't get a series or two?

Unless Genos ankle is worse than we know, I don't see how you keep him out of this game.  Looks like they've already decided Mark is fine and will start the season.

If Simms lights it up McElsack is a goner.

 

Lets say he plays the 1st half goes 9 for 12 for 150yds and 2 TDs, no turnovers.

Whats that do to the depth chart?????

If Sanchez is starting week 1 then there's no reason for Geno not to play.

If Geno is starting week one, then why wouldnt Geno play? Serious question. You are going to let a QB who needs that much work not see the field for two weeks?

Or, Mark isn't fine, and they don't want to get Geno hurt.

Not saying I totally agree with it.  But, if Mark is hurt, the logic is don't get Geno hurt too... Because, you don't particularly want to go into the season with Simms and Graham Harrell.

Why would they care about getting Geno hurt though? Are they saying he gives the team THAT much of a better chance to win vs getting Geno some more reps and maybe getting better? Because based on last week this kid NEEDS reps. Maybe the Jets are actually doing the right thing and seeing more from Simms.

Yeah, but is Geno that much better then them? Not based on what I have seen. More important that he gets reps, then worry about injury, imho.

this move makes it seems like Sanchez won't be ready for week 1 and possibly is seriously hurt.

Geno should be playing against Philly regardless. This makes no sense at all. Geno was awful in his first real action...now we're sitting him?

Then sorry veterans, we need you guys to play a quarter this week so we don't look like a bunch of horses asses week 1.

I'm sorry, but this offense hasn't earned a damned thing in 3 years...they need all the live reps they can get. Our first time offense looked pretty crappy against the Giants second team too.

Setbacks to Geno means delays coming in during the season. If he needs to work on his fundamentals, and he DOES, there's no point sticking him into a spot where guys are trying to impress the coaches enough that they grab a last spot on the team.

I agree 100%. 

 

To me this says that it is possible Simms could start week one over Geno. If it isnt the intention then its just another blunder.

If this is an audition for Simms to start week 1...lol. Wouldn't that be something?

Are you serious?  Geno is the heir apparent to the starting job.  Why would they want him to get hurt or not care?  If he were to get hurt severely and it be a season-ending injury, they'd never find out this year if Geno could be their QB of the future.  The few reps he would get in that game are nothing and wouldn't make an ant hill's worth of difference in helping him get ready to play.

Studying a gameplan, executing it, studying the tape and making corrections are things he needs to get better at too. As well as live gametime action. He needs reps if he is in the discussion to start week one.

To keep saying the same inane thing doesn't make it true or make any more sense.
