Uh oh. Here we go again.
It's my distinct pleasure to report this evening that the Jets are without a good option at quarterback — again, and help is not on the way.
Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports that the New York Jets aren't impressed with what they're seeing from rookie quarterback Geno Smith.
"Judging from what I've seen and heard, rookie Geno Smith hasn't blown anybody away, the way Russell Wilson did last season when he walked into the Seahawks' facility," Cimini wrote. "It's still early and things could change, but the way this is headed, it'll be Sanchez versus the Bucs in Week 1."
For fans, the disappointing news means that Sanchez may not only hang on to a roster position with the Jets, he may actually retain his role as the team's starting quarterback.
For Rex Ryan, it could mean a long season, and if Sanchez continues to fail, a merciful dismissal at the end of the season. Everyone knew the Jets didn't have a quarterback capable of being a legitimate starter in the NFL, and the personnel department hasn't done enough to help Ryan and the Jets find a guy for the immediate future. Geno Smith may be that guy some day, but right now, the Jets are a team with no quarterback, and that's no way to win in the NFL.
