Found July 21, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
@_NickBrewer As much as Jets fans would like to see Geno Smith be their week one starter this season, Mark Sanchez will likely win the job, according to the New York Daily News. Smith thrived with quick, short passes in college — one of the staples in Mornhinweg’s offense, too — but it’s unlikely that the rookie will be ready to be the Week 1 starter. He’s still working to improve his drop backs after spending the majority of his career at West Virginia in the shotgun. I can’t imagine Sanchez playing much better than he did last season.  I think Smith will start at some point in 2013. Need NFL Tickets? Loading...
