According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, some people within the Jets organization believe that rookie Geno Smith will be their week one starter with Mark Sanchez nursing a shoulder injury.
The decision to sit Smith confirms what we reported Sunday: Even though the Jets are calling it a day-to-day injury, there’s no guarantee Sanchez will be ready for Week 1. Some people close to the organization believe it’ll be Smith against the Bucs on Sept. 8. If it is Smith, they’d have to know by next Wednesday, the first day of heavy game prep. As a rookie, he’d need as many practice reps as possible.
Even if Sanchez does play, he’ll likely get benched by week three anyway.

This is a very well written letter by Valentina from Rick’s Cabaret in NYC.
Can you please give Geno Smith another chance? I know he messed up by throwing three INTs against the Giants, and yes, it was really bad when he stepped out of the end zone and gave up a safety, but it was the first time he ever started in an NFL game. He was nervous–I know I would be!
Things could be going better for Jets coach Rex Ryan, whose team seems to be terminally embroiled in quarterback controversy.
Mark Sanchez is currently on the mend after he was injured playing in garbage time during a preseason game, and rookie Geno Smith spent most of Saturday's preseason game throwing an opportunity to supplant the Sanchez as the Gang Green starter into the...

You have to love Joe Namath, because the guy is opinionated. His words are harsh at times, but usually they are 99 percent true. I don’t know what Rex Ryan was doing last week when he put his starting quarterback Mark Sanchez in the game, during clean up time. Rex Ryan seems to be flexing […]
The New York Jets may have no other option but to start rookie Geno Smith under center for Week 1.
Mark Sanchez, who was hurt late in the Jets third preseason game, could miss multiple weeks according to ESPN’s Ed Werder on SportsCenter.

Others may be questioning Jets coach Rex Ryan for inserting Mark Sanchez at quarterback in the fourth quarter of a preseason game but Sanchez would not yesterday.
“I’m not here to second-guess the coaches” Sanchez said. “If they call you to play you better be ready to play and I was. So I warmed up went in played and tried to win.”

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan took a lot of criticism for having Mark Sanchez in the game when he got hurt and it looks like they won’t take any chance of putting Geno Smith at risk this week. NFL.com is reporting that Matt Simms will get the start this week after the team signed Graham Harrell late last night.
Considering Geno Smith, Mark Sanchez, and Greg McElroy(he’s still...
We knew Rex Ryan was on a hot seat heading into this season, but I don't think anyone predicted this mess.The battle between Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith was a rather dull one, but a starting quarterback battle nonetheless. Both QBs made mistake after mistake and it was clear a starter wouldn't be named until the team saw some preseason action. Well, we're in our final...
