Marty Morhinweg waiting for a QB to elevate Dan Leberfeld

Florham Park – So what is the latest on the Jets’ QB competition?

Marty Morhinweg thinks Mark Sanchez has practiced well this week.

“Mark strung together a few good practices back-to-back-to-back,” Morhinweg said.

Morhinweg is happy with the fortitude Smith showed in practicing with a bad ankle the last couple of weeks.

“I was proud of Geno the way he pushed through it,” Morhinweg said. “In the pre-game, he was getting really close there.”

Does Morhinweg want to name a starter after the third preseason game?

“We aren’t into all that; this is a decision that is going to made when one of the players elevates himself,” Morhinweg said.

What if nobody elevates?

“There are a lot of variables involved – you go with some instincts there as well,” Morhinwig said.
