Jets | Could name starting QB soon
Tue, 21 May 2013 11:03:35 -0700

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.

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.
