New York Jets Quarterback Competition: Mark Sanchez’s Decent Game Overshadowed by Mistakes; Smith to Likely Start Saturday vs. Giants

Sanchez leads Jets past Jaguars 37-13

He went 13-for-23 with one touchdown. Unfortunately he made two errors: No. 1 A red zone interception to Jaguars cornerback Marcus Trufant No. 2 As the second quarter came to a close, he held onto the ball for an extended period of time. He then overthrew wide receiver Clyde Gates in the end zone as time as the clock hit zero. “That won’t happen again,” Sanchez said referring to the play. However Jets head coach Rex Ryan took the blame saying “that one was on me” for managing time more efficiently.

No QB decision, but Geno says he’s ready

Reuland has been targeted three times so far in the preseason. He recorded a 31-yard reception against the Jaguars on Saturday, showcasing natural strength while breaking free of defenders for a big gain. Reuland also almost scooped a muffed punt for a touchdown, but was taken down inside the five-yard line. Tight end was a position of relative concern for the Jets entering camp. But Jeff Cumberland and Reuland have exceeded outsiders’ expectations. Reuland should see an increase in playing time in 2013.

Coughlin On Upcoming Jets Game: ‘It Will Be A Very Good Test For Us’

— And the wait continues. Rex Ryan declined Monday to reveal his quarterback plans for Saturday night against the Giants, let alone Week 1, but it appears that rookie Geno Smith will see extended action this weekend, perhaps as the starter — if his ankle holds up in practice. Who will be the Jets starting quarterback in Week 1? “We’re hoping he’ll progress and he’ll be ready to play,” Ryan said. Smith, coming off four days of rest, returned to practice and took the first-team reps — but it was hardly a smooth day. He completed only one of six passes, including an interception. He was victimized by two Stephen Hill drops on well-thrown deep balls.

New York Jets Most Positive Preseason Surprises so Far

After Billy Cundiff’s 30-yard field goal for the Jets, Gabbert carved up New York’s starting defense again using an effective no-huddle. The 18-play drive stalled, however, at the 5 and the Jaguars settled for Josh Scobee’s 23-yard field goal. Sanchez had an impressive drive of his own on the Jets’ next possession, but ruined it with a throw for Kellen Winslow Jr. from the Jaguars 3 that was intercepted in the end zone by Marcus Trufant. The sparse crowd at MetLife Stadium booed Sanchez loudly, just moments after cheering him for grounding a pass near the goal line rather than taking a risky chance and turning the ball over.

Most Irreplaceable New York Jets Player for the 2013 NFL Season

Also, defensive end Justin Tuck has a mild hamstring injury and his status is uncertain. Jim Cordle replaced Baas, but Coughlin said he is exploring all options for his line. Well discuss that, Coughlin said. There are plenty of opportunities to play going forward, whatever decision we make, youll have Cordle and the other centers all involved. Entering his third season, Cordle has played in 25 games for the Giants, but he hasnt started one. If the coaches decide to change things up, they can move left guard Kevin Boothe to center and then shuffle the rest of the line.

Cromartie shines when put in man to man coverage, and this season will feature plenty of that for the 6-foot-2, 210-pound corner. According to Football Outsiders advanced metrics for evaluating corners, Cromartie ranked 6th best in the NFL among all corners in yards per pass at 5.7 on average. He saw 84 passes thrown in his direction but only allowed 33 catches during the season. His play over the past three seasons has been outstanding in New York, and it could be argued that if he didnt have such a checkered past a.k.a. eight kids to seven women outside of his now nuclear family he would have just as big of a profile as Revis did during his success in the Big Apple.
