The competition for the starting quarterback job of the New York Jets has hardly been a thrilling duel thus far, to say the least. Even though he has had a couple of ugly interceptions in the preseason, Mark Sanchez still looks to be in the lead over Geno Smith, who has only played a fraction of one preseason game before being injured.
And even though Philadelphia and Jacksonville have named their starters already, Rex Ryan is content to let his quarterback quandary play out a little more.
“We’re not comfortable making that decision right now. We want to have a thorough evaluation of our quarterbacks before we make that decision,” Ryan maintains.
Ryan already knows what he has in Sanchez. And even though Smith has only played limitedly, Ryan should be able to tell which quarterback will help the Jets win more games this year, a year which many say is make-or-break for Ryan. Delaying the decision too long could end up taking away valuable reps from the eventual starter.
So Ryan should make a decision before it’s too late. But many think it already might be.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan has always been a defensive-minded leader, so it should come as no surprise that he expects his unit to be atop the league's rankings in 2013.
Santonio Holmes is the perfect New York Jet due to the fact that drama loves him and he loves it.
According to the New York Post, Holmes is not making a effort to practice with the team as he milks his foot injury from last season.

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. AP Sports Writer Rex Ryan is still feeling good about his defense.
Sure, the New York Jets have a handful of new faces. And, yes, there are a couple of injuries to deal with. But none of that is keeping Ryan from issuing a bold prediction: The Jets will rank among the top 5 defenses in the NFL this season.

The Jets always seem to be involved in a media circus, from Darrelle Revis losing his cool on the radio, to Tebow mania, to pretty much anything that comes out of Rex Ryan’s mouth. Well now everyone in the organization is properly equipped with “media bridge’ cards to aid in responding to reporters’ tough questions. It should be interesting moving forward to see who actually...
Jets coach Rex Ryan has made it official: there's still a legitimate quarterback competition on his team.

I am starting to think this whole mustache thing is to distract Rex Ryan from how bad of a QB his is. How are you supposed to command respect in the huddle with that on your face?
Rex Ryan of the New York Jets has the daunting task of replacing Mike DeVito, LaRon Landry, Sione Pouha, Yeremiah Bell, Darrelle Revis, Bryan Thomas, Bart Scott, and Eric Smith. He’s chosen to replace most of them with youth and speed. Sheldon Richardson (rookie), Dawan Landry, Kenrick Ellis, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Dee Milliner (rookie), Quinton Coples, Demario Davis, and Antonio...
This is one of the most disgusting things these eyes have ever seen — and that includes the butt fumble.
Mark Sanchez has completely made over his look in the past few years. He’s gone from a suave, AFC finalist to a fu-man-chu wearing, toe nail severing, sociopath who can’t lead a football team if his life depended on it.
If anybody had any doubts whether or not Sanchez has...
The Jets and Rex Ryan have taken a huge step towards naming their s regulastars son starting QB by naming Geno Smith the week 3 starter over Mark Sanchez.
Week 3 is the most important preseason game and the starters usually play into the 4th quarter. Geno Smith starting the game says a lot about who is now in charge in NYC. It is well known that Mark Sanchez is Rex’s guy and I’m...
BY NICK ST. DENISAfter Geno Smith spent last Wednesday throwing four interceptions while hobbling on his injured foot, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan said the rookie quarterback had his "worst day," which was "brutal."This Wednesday, Ryan sang a different tune."It wasn’t brutal, that’s for sure," Ryan quipped. "That was a great day. I don’t...
The New York Jets franchise has been a laughing-stock circus in the NFL for the past year and a half.
The team’s departure from its on-field success with a stifling defense and a power running game to off-field distractions like head coach Rex Ryan’s tattoo and his supposed foot fetish, to the acquiring and subsequent mishandling of Tim Tebow, the Jets were ripe for the reaping...
