If you were competing against your “enemy”, would you want to go in the lions den? Make no mistake however; once this competition is over and a winner has been selected for the beginning of the season, I expect the loser to support the main guy. They don’t need to be the best of friends, but once the starter has been named, I expect number 2 to be a great teammate and support him the best way possible. There is no room for dividing a locker room.
Over 70% said Geno should have gone.
A video, via the OCNN network (yeah that still exists), showed Geno working out with Steelers’ WR Antonio Brown, and let me tell you, the ball velocity and precision was impressive. Geno has always had the big arm, and is completion percentage in college has been a very high 70′s. Mark has always struggled with ball protection (50+ the last two seasons is bad), and Geno would be an upgrade in that department.
The question will be, will Geno be ready to learn and run the offense for the first week. My money is still on Mark Sanchez, but I think I’ll stick to my original prediction that sometime during the season when Sanchez struggles, Rex won’t hesitate to turn the franchise over to Geno thus ending the “Sanchize” era for good.
