The New York Daily News is reporting that the Jets’ quarterback competition is down to a pair of players – Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith.
So, according to the Daily News, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms, are already out of the sweepstakes.
The paper is also is reporting a decision on who will start could be make before training camp starts.
“The Jets’ ballyhooed quarterback competition may be over before Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith even make it to Cortland, N.Y., for the start of training camp in late July,” wrote Manish Mehta. “While the prevailing thought is that the incumbent and the rookie will square off in a summer-long battle to determine the starter, the Jets braintrust isn’t averse to declaring a winner in the coming weeks.”
They should be averse to it?
The battle needs to take place not only in OTA’s and mini-camp, but in training camp and in preseason games.
The Jets’ brass needs to see as much as possible from these two before making a decisions.
And anybody in their brass who “isn’t averse to declaring a winner in the coming weeks,” needs a reality check.
