Chaos Icon : (22 August 2016 - 08:30 AM) this isn't fantasy. cutting players has an impact on the cap.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 August 2016 - 10:20 AM) becuase we need them

ROBJETS Icon : (24 August 2016 - 11:20 AM) All the Sanchez fans saying he finally has good receivers so he will play well will probably finally have your eyes opened. Looking like he will likely be cut from the Broncos by the end of preseason. He already lost his starting job to the backup and the rookie qb is playing decent too
ROBJETS Icon : (24 August 2016 - 11:21 AM) Sanchez isn't starting this week and may not play at all
ROBJETS Icon : (24 August 2016 - 11:22 AM) SOURCE: NFL LIVE yesterday
ROBJETS Icon : (24 August 2016 - 11:24 AM) 3 turnovers and one td in 2016 preseason
santana Icon : (25 August 2016 - 07:20 AM) he will probably start until week 4 lol hes their geno smith

Jetsfan115 Icon : (25 August 2016 - 06:37 PM) Browns trade former first-round pick Barkevious Mingo to Patriots
Jetsfan115 Icon : (25 August 2016 - 06:37 PM) for a conditional draft pick
Jetsfan115 Icon : (26 August 2016 - 05:43 PM) enunwa out for tomorrows game. should give the young WRs some good reps with the first team. CUrious as to who starts in the slot. Will give a good idea of who the jets consider at the top of the group
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 PM) Starting Offense is starting to worry me
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 PM) I know its only preseason but they haven't done anything at this in 3 games
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:19 PM) Harris got hurt is out for the rest of the game
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:53 PM) Well Milliner still sucks
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:07 PM) Hack is in
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:13 PM) Hack led a 80 yard TD drive!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:13 PM) 4/6 79 yards
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:42 PM) And a pick for Hack now
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:44 PM) Well if the giants take the lead It will be interesting to see hack in the 2 min drill
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:44 PM) and now the giants have the lead
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:45 PM) Hack has 2 mins and 3 timeouts so lets see what he can do

Is Jets' QB competition really open?
Sunday, May 10, 2009 NorthJersey.com
; 0 Comments

After being drafted by the Jets, Mark Sanchez called his new teammate, Kellen Clemens, later that evening.

It was the first of what likely will be many conversations between the two in the coming months. The question is which of the two quarterbacks eventually will be carrying a clipboard during those chats.

As offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer recently indicated, Clemens has a three-year head start over Sanchez in terms of his experience in the Schottenheimer's offense. But that advantage might not be nearly enough to enable the fourth-year veteran to hold off the matinee-idol rookie, whose "buzz" factor already is just about off the charts.

When Clemens met with reporters last week for the first time since Sanchez was drafted, he exuded the same confidence he had three weeks earlier, when he was competing with former undrafted free agent Brett Ratliff.

Clemens hardly seemed like a beaten man, saying "I expect to be under center opening day in Houston.

"In speaking with coach [Rex] Ryan, it's an open competition," Clemens said. "I'm going to get a fair shot at the starting job."

But will he? Only Ryan knows the answer. As Baltimore's defensive coordinator last season, Ryan watched rookie Joe Flacco win the starting job by default when veterans Kyle Boller (shoulder) and Troy Smith (tonsillitis) weren't ready for opening day. Ryan said earlier this month he knew last spring that Flacco was the best QB on the Baltimore roster.

While Flacco performed more than creditably in helping the Ravens reach the AFC final, his stats weren't exactly the stuff of legend. He threw 14 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions, and his passer rating of 80.3 was 22nd in the NFL among quarterbacks with enough attempts to qualify. Among quarterbacks whose teams made the postseason, only Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger (80.1) and Minnesota's Gus Frerotte (73.7) had lower ratings. Flacco benefited from a tough defense that finished second in the NFL in total defense and third in points allowed.

Overall 2008 No. 1 pick Matt Ryan had better numbers in leading Atlanta to the playoffs, throwing 16 touchdowns and 11 picks and getting a rating of 87.7. So in the copycat league that is the NFL, starting rookie quarterbacks could become even more popular than the Wildcat formation.

But even Sanchez knows all that might be a blip on the screen.

"I think it raised a lot of other people's expectations of a rookie quarterback," Sanchez said of what Ryan and Flacco accomplished. "They were really anomalies among rookies. ... They would be the first to say that they had a ton of help. For me to be successful this year for this team to be successful, it's about the defense playing well, playing well on special teams and the return game and the offense moving the ball efficiently."

If nothing else, Clemens believes it will be a friendly competition, although certainly intense.

"He's a great dude," Clemens said of Sanchez. "He's obviously a very talented quarterback. I think it will be a good working relationship between he and I. I'll certainly try to be as helpful to him as Chad [Pennington] was to me."

Clemens just hopes he won't be the one with the clipboard.
