The ball barely had settled into Antonio Cromartie’s hands when the boos began. The Jets cornerback had just intercepted Mark Sanchez on a deep pass and it was enough for a faction of the 6000 fans at last night’s Green and White scrimmage to remind Sanchez that Jets fans have not forgotten 2012. It was just another sign that many people are rooting for rookie Geno Smith to beat Sanchez out in the quarterback competition. “I think that’s bullcrap” Cromartie said about the boos. “My thing is if you’re going to be a fan be a fan. That’s what it’s all about. He’s our quarterback. Geno’s our quarterback and they’re in competition. You don’t come out here and boo anybody.” Sanchez said the boos didn’t bother him but it has to be rough hearing jeers in an intrasquad scrimmage. “Shoot I don’t care” Sanchez said. “That’s the way it goes.” It was not a good night for Sanchez until the final play of the scrimmage when he hit wide receiver Stephen Hill on a pretty 57-yard pass down the sideline for a touchdown. But earlier Sanchez struggled to get the offense moving and even fell down once during a drop-back. Call it the “buttstumble.” Smith took the majority of snaps with the first team getting three drives to Sanchez’s one with the starters. The second-team offensive line could not stop anyone and that hurt whoever was with the second group. Smith finished the night completing 9-of-16 passes for 77 yards. The only points he led the team came via a field goal. Sanchez went 6-for-11 for 92 yards with the one long touchdown and one interception. Sanchez was sacked twice. Smith was sacked once.
