Offensive coordinator hopes solution is found sooner rather than later.
After the retirement of David Garrard on Wednesday, the Quarterback competition in New York has come down to two: Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith
After the Jets took Smith in round two of this year’s draft, it was understandable that they were looking to seriously push Sanchez all the way this season, with the hope that one of the two can become a franchise Quarterback.
Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who is responsible with making the decision, is hoping that the competition does not last long.
He told NFL.com, “”This will be a bona fide quarterback competition, period,” Mornhinweg said.
“I am hoping that somebody will rise to the top quicker rather than later.”
The feelings within the Jets camp is that Geno Smith will eventually become the long-term starter, and are interested to see how Sanchez copes with the pressure of losing his job, in an effort to see if his game improves.
The team are in a state of re-building, as they look to install a new lease of life into a team that had become stagnant on both sides of the ball over the last two seasons, and a change at Quarterback is always the first place to start.
