No Point In New York Jets Going Back to Mark Sanchez
Sure, the New York Jets got bailed out by one of the dumbest plays you’ll ever see – but a win is a win. Given the team’s expectations coming into the season, fans could care less how the Ws get put on the board. Despite all the preseason hate and disbelief, New York hung around and defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on opening weekend.
The quarterback position has of course been all the talk for the Jets, dating back to last season. Fuel was dumped all over the burning controversy with the selection of Geno Smith in this year’s draft, but things were made easier on Rex Ryan when Mark Sanchez went down with a shoulder injury in the preseason. As it turns out, Sanchez’s shoulder injury could be a blessing in disguise.
The latest on the Sanchize’s injury is that he could have a torn labrum, which may lead to him being on the shelf for the foreseeable future. After seeing Smith in the opener, it looks like that could be the best thing for business. Smith looked solid in his debut, going 24/38 for 256 yards with one touchdown and one pick. It wasn’t a great debut, but he played well enough to put his team in position to attain a victory. That’s really all that matters.
While it’s way too early to be jumping on the Geno bandwagon, as he could easily still prove to be a bust – what would the Jets really gain by going back to Sanchez? Even if he gets healthy and is able to play again, is really really going to make the Jets that much better than Smith? No way.
New York is best served at this point to just roll with their rookie QB. It’s might get ugly at times and there well be plenty of rookie mistakes, but he’s the future. Sanchez as the Jets signal-caller, is now quickly becoming a thing of the past.
