Mark Sanchez spoke for more than 20 minutes about the New York Jets’ crowded quarterback situation, saying all the right things throughout. Yes, he believes he’ll be the starter, and yes, he looks forward to the competition.
“You don’t worry about anything,” McElroy said. “You just go out there and, with the reps you’re given, you make the most of them. That’s all you can really control and that’s all you can really worry about.”
“We worked tirelessly for Geno Smith and all of our draft prospects,” Select Sports Group said. “The NFL Draft is unpredictable, and we prepared Geno and all of our draft prospects, as we do every year, about what can happen during the draft.”
The two discussed the fate of Rex Ryan, the quarterback competition, the current roster, the future of the franchise and much, much more.
It appears Sanchez won’t be joining Tim Tebow on the unemployment line — at least for now.
Tebow was a hybrid of player, prayer and a flashpoint of a complex, spiritual movement. His kneeling refrain doubled as an emblem of optimism. And he has just been released by the Jets, for reasons that only they understand.
It was expected for months, and now it’s a done deal: the Jets have cut ties with Tebow.
The Jets’ QB conundrum is among the hot stories generated once the 2013 NFL Draft came to a close.
Geno Smith is ready to work and confident he’ll become the Jets’ franchise quarterback.
The Jets might be ready to cut Mark Sanchez after drafting new franchise quarterback Geno Smith.
The future is now. Geno Smith is a New York Jet and could compete with Mark Sanchez right away.
The most important Jet this season won’t even take the field. The chances of success for New York this season are not great, but they rest with Marty Mornhinweg.
John Idzik acknowledged that he and Darrelle Revis recently had “a nice talk.” Other than that, the new New York Jets’ general manager divulged very little, particularly about the swirling trade rumors involving the star cornerback.
Sanchez is too busy learning the West Coast offense to be overly concerned with East Coast rumors.
The quarterback said Friday he’d show up with a “great attitude” despite reports that New York will eventually pull the plug on Tebow Time.
