New York Jets: Mark Sanchez Placed on Short Term IR, Geno Smith Must Take His Spot
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has had a pretty rough offseason. First, the Jets trade away the team’s best player in now-Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis. Secondly, the Jets drafted rookie quarterback Geno Smith giving him some competition in training camp.
Third, and most important, Sanchez was thrown into the fourth quarter of a preseason game by one of the most moronic head coaches in the game today, Rex Ryan. Of course, Sanchez suffers a shoulder injury in which will put him out several weeks — eight to be exact now that the Jets placed him on short-term injured reserve.
In the meantime, Smith has to step up and prove he can win games. It’s not only in the best interest of him, but the Jets. Sanchez started his career with New York in a decent manner, but it seems every year he has continued to tail off. There have even been clamors for the team to release him altogether after this injury, and move on with Smith.
Well, for the Jets, they may not have their future in either one of these quarterbacks when it’s all said and done. Smith has started the season throwing just one touchdown and four interceptions in two games against the Bucs and New England Patriots — equating to a rating of 55.2.
If the Jets want any chance in the near future, Smith will have to step up big time otherwise New York will just be prolonging their fans’ misery even longer. They are already a pretty pathetic bunch, especially with such a sorry excuse for a coach. It may be time to clean house after this season and begin from scratch if the team fails to make any improvement upon recent years.
