It’s the beginning of the era of management under general manager John Idzik. It’s also the beginning of the era of a whole new, up-tempo offense that is run by newly-appointed offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. It’s the beginning of a new Rex Ryan, one who doesn’t run his mouth, and one who is just dedicated to focusing on his team only.
And finally, it’s the beginning of a new era that is without Mark Sanchez as quarterback.
Geno Smith will start on Sunday for the Jets due to an injured Sanchez, but this could have been the plan anyway. It is no secret that Sanchez has had his struggles during the past two years, and quite frankly the organization is getting sick of it. Smith has a golden opportunity to come in and seal the deal as the starter, in which case Sanchez might not be a part of the gang green for long.
Jets fans should be very excited about all these “new eras”, if you will. It will be interesting to see how Smith adapts to the NFL, and it will be nice to not see Sanchez in there for a change. It should also be very interesting to see this new offensive operate. And finally, it should be interesting to see what Idzik can do with the Jets in the coming years, and if he can turn them into a playoff team in the near future.
The new era begins Sunday, and I for one am very excited. I believe every other Jets fan should be.
