what do we think? could he possibly be worse the a guy famous for running into his sationary linemans butt and giving up a fumble and subsequent td, or a guy that couldn't even beat out the butt fumbler for a job everyone was desperate to give him.

He looked ok when he got time last year. and ok is not a word often said about sanchez or geno.

if not McElory then who?

inb4 Rex says "best chance to win" or calls up "ol number 4"

To be fair to Geno he looked bad on a few plays in the Giants game, but the Giants have a good D.  I also recall a few drops that were squarly on the WR's.  Geno looked fine in the Lions game.  He does seem to struggle a bit under center and some of his handoffs looked akward.

Part of the whole "GENO WAS AWFUL" story coming out of that game was media driven as when combined with Rex's playing Sanchez in the 4th Quarter and Sanchez's subsequent injury it all provides for a nice media narrative of "THE JETS ARE A DISASTER".

If Sanchez is out for the opener I expect the Jets to start Geno Smith.  He needs reps, and from what I can tell in the preseason the team is going nowhere this year.

McElroy looked good at times last year, but the Chargers game where he took 11 sacks was a disaster.  I'd like to see him in the Jets new offense, but he's been hurt most of the preseason.  He might not even keep his roster spot, as Matt Simms has played well and the Jets (Especially REX)  are probably still pissy with McElroy for mouthing off in the media a few years ago.

mouthing off about the jets.............can't imagine he would have trouble finding material.

Geno has been throwing lot of picks. Are we sure is ankle is 100% now. also if he gets hurt again are they really going to go back to sanchez???? the fans might riot if that happened.

Starting Geno is the worst thing the Jets can do. Even if Sanchez isn't healthy. Geno isn't ready yet to be a starter. He'll struggle against defenses and the media will eat him alive.

Let someone else (McElroy, Simms) be the QB and take a beating. Then you can always let Geno take over halfway through the season.

can the season start already? as a jet fan its annoying to hear so much about a 6-10 team that didnt do anything last year and wasnt projected to do anything this year, but yet we get more media attention and smack talk then any other team in the league. its flattering but really just stop.

like this is a fantasy football forum but people still find a way to make threads solely to be LOLjets. Its weird.

It's flattering that your franchise is the laughing stock of the league? Weird.

don' t worry people make fun of the raiders too, why just in the last 24 hours I made a Clowney joke and a mchurt driving people to alcoholism joke.

NY is a media haven, I thought you would be used to it. if you think it is bad now, wait til the season starts and 10 times more people are watching and commenting on Sanchez, Geno, Rex and the Qb mess.
