New York Jets QBs Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith are expected to compete for the starting quarterback job this offseason, but the quarterback competition could be settled well before the team even heads to training camp in July. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg wants one of the two QBs to separate himself from the other, and if that happens this week, the team isn't against naming their starter early. "Common sense tells you that you hope it's quick, but this is going to be a full blown competition. Period," Mornhinweg said.
Sanchez, because of his experience, has the advantage to take control of the early competition. Smith, who spent much of his college days in shotgun, is spending a ton of time taking snaps from under center during OTAs with quarterbacks coach David Lee. Mornhinweg knows that the longer their QB competition lasts, the less time the winner will have to work with the first-team offense. The team also won't just name a starter to name a starter, they want a clear winner in the competition.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez has the leg up on Smith from the start, but that could change. Neither quarterback will be a solid fantasy backup QB, though, because of the team's lack of solid receiving threats and the fact that either QB could be replaced at any point during the season due to poor performance.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Plaxico Burress, who also played for the New York Jets in 2011, said QB Mark Sanchez could improve in the future. "I think he will turn the corner and become a good quarterback in the league," Burress said. "... I've said that from Day One. But he has to just go out and put it together. I believe that he will."
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez will receive competition in training camp from Greg McElroy and Geno Smith, but it's Sanchez's job to lose. If he does enough to win the job, he won't be recommended as a solid backup fantasy QB, though, given the Jets' lack of weapons on roster.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith said he expects to learn from QB Mark Sanchez even though they will be competing for the starting quarterback job. "He's a guy I'm going to be in competition with but at the same time I'm going to learn from," Smith said. "He's a professional, he's done it for several years. He's carried himself well in my opinion. Everything that he's done, the ups and downs, the overall perception of him may be swayed depending on the games he's played, but I think he's a pretty good quarterback and I like forward to competing with him and being around him."

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez could very well be the team's starting quarterback this upcoming season. Sanchez may provide the team's best option at quarterback because QB Geno Smith is considered raw at this point and QB David Garrard is 35 years old and hasn't played an NFL game since 2010. Head coach Rex Ryan is likely coaching for his job this year, so he likely will pick the starting quarterback who will best help him win games in the short term.
