Found May 21, 2013 on This Given Sunday:
With David Garrard now out of the New York Jets' quarterback struggle, and that's exactly the appropriate word for their situation, the team's starting quarterback options are essentially down to incumbent Mark Sanchez or rookie Geno Smith. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets may pick their starting quarterback before training camp. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg talked with Mehta about the Jets' quarterback battle, saying, "We don't care what the prevailing thought is," Mornhinweg told Mehta about the perception that the quarterback competition will continue through the start of training camp. "We only care about our competition here."

Geno Smith was scolded for playoff proclamation

Geno Smith has been a quick study when it comes to learning how to handle the intense media presence that envelopes the New York Jets. Smith provided a shining example of how not to deal with the media during the week preceding the 2013 NFL draft.

Geno Smith hired Roc Nation Sports to represent him

New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith told Mike Garafolo of USA TODAY Sports that he’s hired Jay-Z’s agency Roc Nation Sports to represent him. Smith fired his agents after being taken in the second round of last month’s draft, rather than in the top 10.

Rex calls Sanchez play unacceptable

Mark Sanchez had an absolutely brutal day today at the New York Jets OTA. He threw 11 passes and completed six, not great but at least it was over 50%.

Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Non Quarterback, Roster Review Edition

This may come as a surprise to many people out there, but there are going to be 51 other players on this team come September that are not named Geno Smith or Mark Sanchez. I know, I know, that seems crazy based on the media coverage of this team, but believe me, it is true.
