If Geno Smith can remain healthy AND have a turnover free two quarters when he starts Saturday night against the Giants, he will be your week one starter. WHAT?!?
So what has happened that allows Geno Smith the lead guy in this QB competition? My simple answer: Mark Sanchez. With Mark being Mark in the first two preseason games (turnovers), I think the Jets and specifically John Idzik is praying that Geno has the game (or two quarters) of his life this weekend.
It’s never been more clear to me that John wants to move on from Mark and I do believe Rex will be gone as well after the season (long shot during the season).
The Jets’ farcical quarterback competition will conclude Saturday night with rookie Geno Smith needing two turnover-free quarters to secure a job that many people in the organization want him to win.
Although Rex Ryan hasn’t announced a starter for the third preseason game against the Giants, the Daily News has learned that Smith will get the nod if he doesn’t suffer a setback with his ankle in the next few days.
The Jets’ plan is simple: Start the rookie if he’s healthy.
