MikeGangGree... Icon : (14 September 2014 - 10:06 PM) NFL rules state that only the head coach can call a timeout on the sidelines…

Except in Green Bay where anybody up to the third row can call a timeout.

azjetfan Icon : (18 September 2014 - 09:31 PM) With our complete disaster of a secondary I am a little surprised we have not either signed a guy like Samuel or made a trade
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 04:06 PM) Milliner also has a quad now. It really makes sense just to sit him until he is 100%. Lets get healthy instead of risking injury or letting Marshal go 80 for a TD.

Cowher: Sanchez, not Smith, should be Jets starter

Bill Cowher had one of the most successful seasons in NFL history with a rookie quarterback, but the 2013 Jets aren’t the 2004 Steelers.

With that in mind, Cowher said he believes the Jets should give Mark Sanchez the starting job and ease Geno Smith into a role on the team.

“It’s a work in progress, to be honest with you,” Cowher, now an analyst with CBS, said when asked if he thought the Jets had enough talent to support a rookie signal-caller.

“Some of those receivers have to step up. I like Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. I don’t think you have to be totally dependent on the running game, but you have to lean on those guys and the offensive line and the defense to keep you in games.”

Smith will try and make that decision tougher for the Jets when he starts tomorrow night against the Giants. The second-round pick out of West Virginia has had an inconsistent offseason, which has been slowed by an ankle injury suffered in the preseason opener against the Lions.

There is some thought the Jets are hoping to hand Smith the job if he shows some semblance of being ready in the annual preseason showdown at MetLife Stadium. But with coach Rex Ryan facing a make-or-break season in the final year of his contract, he may opt to go with whomever gives him the best chance at winning now and not throw an unprepared Smith into the fire.

“The future will take care of itself,” said Cowher, whose Steelers went 15-1 with Ben Roethliserger at quarterback in 2004 before losing to the Patriots in the AFC Championship. “The most important thing for any head coach is to give your football team a chance to win each week.

“No one is going to play someone at the expense of losing a game. What kind of message does that send to the rest of the players? I think the best thing for the future is to find a way to win games.”

Sanchez failed to take advantage of the opportunity afforded to him by Smith’s injury. Flashes of the quarterback he appeared to be blossoming into his first two years in the league have been accompanied by brutal interceptions against Detroit and Jacksonville that have defined his third and fourth seasons.

“With Geno’s injury I think this is Mark’s job,” Cowher said. “He’s got the experience. It’s a fresh start for him with the standpoint that you have a new coordinator. Marty (Mornhinweg) has been there before. He knows how to take the talent that you have and put it in a position to succeed.

If Smith does earn the job with a stellar performance against the Giants, Cowher said the Jets would be wise not to ask too much of him.

“You have to be patient: push, prod, but then be patient,” Cowher said. “There’s a fine line where the expectation level is high, but you are realistic. That’s why you see teams doing the read option because it transitions the college quarterback to the pro game. You move them off the line a little bit, gives them a chance to do the things they are used to. Then as they get more comfortable as the season goes on you can start to expand, just don’t task too much too early.”
