PLAYERS: Rex RyanGeno Smith
TEAMS: New York Jets
Oh the Jets.  The J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!  After flip-flopping like a fat stack at IHOP on which quarterback was who and where, New York Jets head coach, (blah) Rex Ryan, NOW commits to rookie New York Jets QB, Geno Smith. Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports that the head of the three New York football families, (even though two actually play in Jersey, who cares), New York Jets head coach, Rex Ryan, has formerly backed rookie QB, Geno Smith.  Dom Rex and the Jets are moving on from Mark Sanchez. The Jets saga is one continuously bad movie, like the Sound of Music.  On the other hand, the Jets yarn is a bad celluloid version of Top Gun.  Cougar [Sanchez] lost it and turns in his wings and Maverick [Smith] takes over (ok, I balled my eyes out when Goose died and I do every time even though I know it is going to happen). The question still remains, why would New York Jets quarterback, Mark Sanchez, be put into a meaningless game halfway through the 4th quarter behind a third-string offensive line ultimately getting him injured.  The answer is clear now.  In spite of Rex’s spotlight hogging verbiage about a good old quarterback competition, Smith was going to be the starting QB from day one of training camp.  The only reason, as it seems to me that Sanchez is on the team is because his ridiculous contract makes him more immovable than Rex himself.  Geno was always going to be “the man.”  Rex has signed checks Sanchez’s career cannot cash.  No matter, soon Rex will be driving the equipment truck for the Perth Amboy pee-wees in the rubber ducky league.  The Jets are in a tailspin and pilot Rex cannot get his bearings.  I can tell you this; it is going to be a fun ride watching this bad film as it plays out in NFL theaters near you.   You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69 Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot.

Mornhinweg reportedly is a “big fan of Smith’s potential and believes he’s the better option, whether...

Jets sign QB Brady Quinn, Sanchez picture gets fuzzier

As Geno Smith appears to be the Week 1 starter, things have just gotten shakier for Mark Sanchez's hopes to start for the Jets this season.  This latest signing Quinn may confirm that the Jets fear Sanchez's injury is more serious than they initially tried to reveal, as a veteran backup will be needed if Smith becomes this season's permanant QB.  To make room...
