Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports there is a mutual agreement between both GM John Idzik and HC Rex Ryan to name QB Geno Smith the Jets starter.
It’s no secret that Idzik has been pulling for the rookie to get the starting job over Mark Sanchez throughout all preseason, with many believing that he had pushed Smith on toRyan. However, Mehta reports that as of now Ryan sees Smith as “the better option if healthy”.
Sanchez has apparently burned out all his trust with the Jets hierarchy after disastrous performances this preseason, having failed to convince anyone he could lift this Jets team.
Rex Ryan will be hoping Smith can become that franchise quarterback the Jets sorely need, and at the same time keep his job.
