Jets ready to usher in the Geno era?

New York could be ready to move on from Sanchez as starting QB. Terry McCormick

The reports from New York indicate that Geno Smith was impressive in rookie mini-camps, not only throwing the football, but in dealing with the media scrutiny and in taking on a leadership role.

Now, the speculation has become that Smith could be the Jets starter from the get-go this fall, and that that could leave Mark Sanchez on the outside looking in.

Brian Costello of the New York Post suggests that the Jets should and will try to move Sanchez if Smith progresses as they hope in becoming the team's new starting quarterback.

Despite the recent successes of rookie QBs in the league, starting a rookie is still a risk. And having that rookie deal with the media glare of New York is an even more daunting task. Costello says the Jets might keep veteran David Garrard to mentor Smith and perhaps even start the season as the first-stringer.

Costello also offers that Sanchez can still be productive, but desperately needs a change of scenery to reset a career that has taken a turn toward the south.
