TJ Rosenthal helps kicks off another week of New York Jets coverage at Turn On The Jets with his weekly No Huddle - Make sure to give TJ a follow on Twitter on Turn On The Jets a follow on Facebook. Geno, Tebow and Sanchez What a difference seven days makes. Darrelle who? Last Monday many were mourning the departure of Revis Island. Today Tim Tebow was released. News that will now overtake the Geno Smith draft headlines that trumped the Revis ones. Could Mark Sanchez news be next? John Idzik has no tattoo love for him, as a franchise quarterback. We wonder how long the Sanchise has got before he becomes the new “distraction” worth releasing or trading somehow. Geno Smith, the new prototype. He can run, throw, throw on the run. If he gets thrown into the fire we only hope that he is groomed early in his career better than Sanchez was upon his arrival. Geno hasn’t suited up once yet, but is talking playoffs already. Hey, that excites us, but can that belief spread through the huddle? If it can, the Jets will have finally found a field general. Tebow: Wow, what a disaster. He arrived like the fifth Beatle, with his own unprecedented backup QB press conference to boot. Now he exits before the Simms kid does. We wonder what the miracle worker truly would have done to the energy of a team that had no weapons and was worn down by a moping Sanchez in week 16 and 17. Curiousity killed the cat though and there was no way that Woody Johnson would allow some late December starting mop up duty to create any more future havoc than there already was surrounding the Jets and Tebow. Where he ends up next, God only knows. No pun intended Foxboro probably. As a fullback. For some goal line carries that help to beat Gang Green in 2013. We are kidding people. Relax. Canada would be a great path for him. Two solid years to work on his game and rebranding as a player. He won’t need the CFL to help erase the Tebowmania madness however. The Jets did that for him already. Sanchez: A different kind of disaster. He was groomed poorly, with handcuffs from the start. He wasn’t surrounded with the right weapons at the time the Jets wanted him to elevate his play in 2011. Last season he was handed even less to work with. We all get it. You, me, and the beer vendors. What baffles us though, is how his inner confidence had by the end of last season deteriorated to the point where it seemed like he could barely complete even a two yard pass. How will he get himself back, in a place where he enjoys the game again, and can block out a fan base that appears ready to still boo him right out of the stadium? We can’t tell you how high Mark Sanchez’s ceiling could have been or still can be. We can say that the chance for him to repair his career does not seem best served in a Jet uniform anymore. Imagine him winning the job then throwing a pick early in week one to Revis the Buc. Met Life will call for caged lions to be brought out to midfield for the human sacrifice. Idzik is turning pages quickly away from Tanny’s Circus. This means only one thing for Sanchez now. That he is no lock to survive training camp anymore. Guaranteed money or not. Draft 2013 We will be honest. We wanted Tavon Austin at 9. We felt that if anything, the Jets should have grabbed an OLB at 9 once Austin became a Ram. This to shift the strength of the defense to pressure, not pass coverage. That said, acquiring arguably the drafts top CB, DT, and yes even QB in the eyes of certain draft analysts, followed by Chris Ivory and more O line depth, makes us breathe easier. We are ready for, and will respect all of the reader comments about what should have been done by Idzik. After all Jets nation is as heady as any in the league. What this draft did existentially, was hopefully move the Jets further away from the ‘clown car’ tag. To a place where X’s and O’s were the top priority. If Milliner can cover better than Kyle Wilson can, and Sheldon Richardson helps makes the D line a young collective force, while Geno Smith the two pronged weapon takes over the signal calling, as Ivory contributes to a new more potent RB rotation, the Jets will be a vastly different team in only one year’s time. The aforementioned scenario may be asking for a tad much off the bat, but it’s a nice new daydream for diehards to have. Especially when considering where things were just seven days ago. Kerry Rhodes and Dallas Clark Picture Kerry Rhodes ball hawking as the Jets new defensive line chases down opposing QB’s and Dallas Clark providing an upgrade over Jeff Cumberland. Rex didn’t like Rhodes and fences probably won’t be mended. Clark wants another shot to run with a contender over a rebuild situation. If the Rex-Rhodes past could be buried, and Clark’s phone wasn’t ringing though, would these “one year deal” type of additions be a better look to the roster? Idzik will at some point soon, add some vets to the new rookie class. A few shrewd choices, combined with some of the kids flying out of the gate, could make the Jets an unexpected surprise That’s our glass half full take folks. Yes we are hopeful today. Rejuvenated. Excited for the season finally. Now it’s time to enjoy that “Geno is In, Tebow is Out, Sanchez is on the clock” morning coffee.
